* The main legendaries (Arceus, Mew, Celebi, Darkrai, etc) are in fact direct [[ProjectedAvatar avatars]] of said hyperintelligences. They functioned as psychological focus to exert subtle memetic control (in form of [[AGodAmI legendary-centric polytheistic worships/animist religions]] etc) over the local populace.

* So, basically Pokemon with the power of Gods operate the same way as various Gods people believe in in Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality book series?


* Heatran is said to have been born from volcanic activity at the time of the creation of the world. Perhaps it's the deity of volcanoes everywhere, or maybe it is simply the god of Stark Mountain specifically. Alternatively, it could be the equivalent of a behemoth from ''{{Exalted}}'': divinely created, but with no real purpose behind it and not a god itself.

* Magic? This can be explained with science. Pokémon are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oviparity oviparous]], and females will normally lay eggs, which are then [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/External_fertilization fertilized externally]] by the males. Unfertilized Pokémon eggs bear almost no resemblance to fertilized ones (which ''can't'' really be explained by science), which would explain both why the egg-laying process has never been seen and why the child inherits so much of its move data from its father--the egg isn't really a "Pokémon egg", per se, until the father fertilizes it. (Maybe unfertilized Pokémon eggs are extremely small, similar to human ova.) The idea that the females lay the eggs regardless also explains why the only requirement of the instant egg cheat is the presence of at least one female that could normally produce an egg. The other parent could be a male of a different egg group, a genderless or legendary Pokémon, [[LesYay another female]], or even [[TrulySingleParent non-existent,]] but if there is no female or the only female would normally be unable to be a parent, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything the resulting egg produces a]] [[GameBreaker Game Breaking Glitch]].

* It might be that the Pokeballs are programmed to retrieve a Pokemon when he falls to a certain amount of health, ensuring that a Pokemon isn't seriously injured in battle.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:The Pokemon world has ridiculously high taxes and a very poor economy]]
Houses with more than one room are a luxury, beds are almost unheard of, and only a few places have [=TVs=]. Not only that, but there are plenty of locations where there are more trainers and townsfolk than there are houses for them to live in, meaning that there is a problem with homeless people. The fact that being a Pokemon trainer is essentially betting on the outcome of cockfights certainly doesn't help, and we're not even getting into the seeming lack of available jobs and almost nonexistent educational facilities.\\
However, the Pokemon world also has hospitals that can cure any disease and injury and can be used free of charge. Healing machines can't be cheap, so obviously the money comes from somewhere. The Pokemon gyms are even worse, since many of them have expensive-looking puzzles and traps, and who knows how much money it takes to keep the various battle frontiers up and running? The only logical conclusion is that the "free" Pokemon-based facilities are supported by everyone's tax dollars, and the government is doing a ''very'' poor job using them wisely.\\
Conclusion: The Pokemon games have a really sucky economy.

[[WMG:The Pokemon League is the equivalent of BreadAndCircuses]]
It manages to sustain itself even though it has seemingly no source of income, so it's likely it's run by the government itself in an effort to keep Pokemon trainers busy.

[[WMG:Pressing the button on a Poke Ball starts off a timed function]].
The anime always depicts that a button is pressed before the Poke Ball is thrown, and it pops open in the air. The opening thing is a mechanism that starts after a brief time limit, so the whole process is like throwing a grenade.

[[WMG:Pokemon attacks can be fatal, but are turned down in battles]]
Well, the anime demonstrates the "attacks can be turned down" part in one episode.


First of all, it is said that Mew, the so-called "first Pokemon", has the genes of all other Pokemon within it. Second, the move Metronome is said to work by activating dormant parts of the brain, implying that every Pokemon knows every move, but just shuts out most of them for some reason. Other Pokemon could have evolved from Mew by shutting down parts of Mew's genome during development, causing a change in form and what types of moves become available. This sort of thing happens in real biology too, so it's not that [[IncrediblyLamePun Farfetch'd]]. Of course, because all Pokemon are one species, new species of Pokemon would be better termed "breeds" or "subspecies", and variants within an evolutionary chain would be better termed "morphs".

[[WMG:Mars is a slut of the highest kind.]]
First, look at Mars's hair and Silver's hair. Since this is anime, and hair is everything in anime relationships, and their hair is the same, obviously Silver is her son. BUT, Roark looks very similar to Silver (Don't think so? Stick a mining helmet and a pair of glasses on Silver). So that means she had her way with Byron AND Giovanni. And we all know how much she likes Cyrus...
* Alternately, Ariana and Giovanni are Mars and Silver's parents, while Roark is their half brother by Ariana and Byron.
