Of course. "Grand Theories" would be just about everything into our purview that has been discussed and is so invasive to the canon as to affect the workings of the entire "universe". They are things than encompass enough of the universe to affect several [possible] entries, not just the Poké entries themselves, and also would determine what and how do we write about Pokémon; thus we discuss them as a lot rather than leave for a sole person to "try" and solve.
Whether Poké Balls transform Pokémon into digital data or they are transformed into some other form of energy or moved to elseworld, for example, turned out to be something like that — digitalization brought in too many implications to be workable. Tied to that is what the heck are Apricorns. How evolution works ends up being another one — whatever is chosen, the triggers, thresholds and models ought to be consistent across entries. The microeconomy, if we ever decide to tackle it, will be a fun
one. And the type chart
, oooh yes, we've already gotten on some discussions about that.
The important thing about Grand Theories is that once we discuss them and reach a consensus, we are especially bound to them (unless further canon evidence proves we must change them of course) because they are the first things outside "our-world-like" normalcy that make that work make sense.
The chatroom has some discussions about most of these (sans Economics). I'll search and link some of the discussions later, editing this post. We should also discuss the possibility of having articles on those Theories.
