The professors set up lots of data collection machines across the wilds (like wildlife cameras). When a trainer catches a Pokemon the Pokedex inspets the Pokemon itself and uses other data it's been given such as news articles and the aformentioned data collection to generate an entry for the pokemon. This is why sometimes the entries hit the mark and provide true facts, and other times they say something nonsenical or clearly impossible. This is also why the pokedex entries change every game and why every trainer has the goal of filling out the Pokedex: actually, they're having their specific dex fill out entries so that the AI has a dataset to be fine tuned off of.

[[WMG: [[ChildProdigy Child prodigy]] champions are (relatively) common in the Pokemon world]]
Why do Veterans on the Victory Roads of the Pokemon world not seem at all surprised that a random teenager was able to flatten their entire carefully cultivated team? Why is the age of your high-skilled player character regarded as a novelty at most, rather than [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior a cause for concern]] or [[AChildShallLeadThem a sight of awe]]? Well, ''every'' player character in the main series is a child who [[ImprobableAge ends up becoming a champion]], and there's even NPC examples of talented youngsters like Iris, Blue, or Benga-- they certainly possess unique ability with Pokemon, ''but'' there's such a level of precedent that no one really cares all that much that a preteen was able to wipe the floor with the newest champion.


Look at some of the species names of Pokémon. They must have gotten the names of the animals these are similar to from somewhere. Perhaps they live in a {{Leviathan}}-esque world, and the Pokémon world would be similar to the Darwinists.

Ash's father never appears, but his mother says that he's the "apple of [his dad's] eye." Your player characters in the games generally don't have present fathers, or if he is identified he's a gym leader who seems to be a hands-off parent. Your Sinnoh rival Barry has a dad who seems barely present, and sometimes your dad is mentioned fondly as having bought you a TV or having been present at your mom's Rhyhorn race, but otherwise, dads seem very out of the picture in the Pokemon world. Moreover, neither you nor Ash not Barry nor many characters with DisappearedDads or hands off dads appear to angst or even think about it much (Barry's dad Palmer seems on good terms with his partner and child in spite of being a hands-off dad). It could be that Pokemon cultures just don't demand much of dads. They show up occasionally, encourage their kids and maybe lead by example by becoming rich or important, maybe buy the kid a thing or two every once in a while, then go off on their own adventures. They're expected to be benevolent figures to the kid, but not much else. No one really questions this because it's so embedded in the culture. Dads who are more present and take and active role in raising the kid are appreciated, but it's not expected.

Following off the above. In the Generation II games and their remakes, what did Red have? Pikachu, unevolved (as it would be from Yellow) yet still at the highest level, indicating that it was likely his starter, and all three R/B starters at full evolution, as can only be legitimately gained in Yellow without trading[[note]]Please ignore [[TheMissingno Missingno.]] and [[GoodBadBugs the Mew Glitch]] for the moment, as they are illusions of the FourthWall, nothing more[[/note]]. What events did the Generation II remakes add to the original story? The Unown rooms, Eusine, and the player character being somehow chosen by Suicune, among other things, plus even more Legendary involvement and the Kimono Girls' [[AscendedExtra ascension from nobodies]]. Not only that, but the newer generations [[MergingTheBranches work in]] the storylines of both of their [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo earlier installments]] into the third version, with even more storyline beyond that. As for Generations [[DorkAge III]] and [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome IV]], the "canon" remakes were clearly skipped, but would have been to ''Yellow'' and ''Crystal'' what the existing remakes were to the base installments.

Like having a VideoGame/{{Persona}}. This is why so many people fall into PoorPredictableRock; they aren't flexible enough mentally to have different types and fall into Bird Obsessions, Water Obsessions, etc.

** Another idea is that the plants used for incense is an invasive, manmade species. If you check the other uses for incense, they can be used to power up moves. Possibly humans first engineered incense to help with powering up... and then discovered the secondary effects in breeding. Then the plants escaped the lab and started growing in the wild, causing local wildlife to start breeding baby Pokemon. Alternatively, the baby Pokemon areas and places heavily polluted with incense, possibly dropped by trainers grinding with their Pokemon holding on it.


Causing the FanDumb to say [[VindicatedByHistory that they liked Gen 8 now]], that they don't like the new studio's ideas which may consist of making the franchise entirely mobile, selling extra Pokémon as DLC, redoing the Pokémon into ''Film/{{PokemonDetectivePikachu}}'''s UncannyValley artstyle, and they want Masuda back. After heckling him on twitter and even making false rape allegations.

Sinnoh is doing worst than Kalos but better than Unova, as their Elite Four do not need to work part-time jobs.

\n* Olympia, Wulfric, Wikstrom and Drasna do seem to be on the older end in terms of age as well as being on the stronger end so maybe they saved up enough to work as a gym leader/Elite Four full-time?

Because of the [[InternetBackdraft massive]] [[BrokenBase backlash]] against the removal of the National Dex until another set of games (you know they'll come), the FanDumb will decide to boycott the games... giving Nintendo and Gamefreak the impression that Pokémon isn't really interested anymore - ergo it's not worthy of the attention of its juggernaut. That is, ''IF'' they decide to give it to us.

As of Gen 8, each of the Fire starts have be found to match an animal of an Eastern Zodiac, albeit with a few questionable stretches. If this is intended on Game Freak's part, then it would accumulate to something greater!

* Specifically, he'll go to an anime-only region where the League has not been fully set up yet and are lacking a candidate for the job. Just so the writers don't have to [[InternetBackdraft ruffle any feathers]] by replacing an old Elite Four member.

** Not Jossed, [[CaptainObvious egg-laying creatures carry their eggs inside them for a while before laying]]. And if it's not true for the anime, maybe it's still true for the games -- maybe Mew giving birth was an accident of Mewtwo's origins/EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.
