View Full Version : Pokémon Mysteries Revealed
The Fish King
01/16/2004, 11:54 AM
In lew of making another Fan Fiction that would most definitely would not be finished due to my leaving in a month or so, I have decided to bring back a great idea that was started at the Magikarp Secret Society. The MSS is an online organization that has since disbanded, but the spirit of it's members still live on. The idea was to explain the great Pokémon mysteries in sound scientific theories. Every once in a while I will reveal a new mystery for all to be enlightened. Feel free to ask your own questions as they come to you and I will explain them to you.
To start off I will explain one of the biggest mysteries ever conceived. How does a Pokéball work?
The answer to this question comes in two parts. First, its ability to collapse and still retain its spherical shape is easily explainable. It isn't a "Perfect Sphere." It has sliding panels that move over each other to shrink it. These panels are very thin so it appears to be a sphere. Inside there are also springs that coil up when it collapses and expands. These springs move the panels.
The second answer is about capturing Pokémon. For this, a bit of discussion about biology is needed. Pokémon is a Kingdom of its own, like Plantae or Animalia are. Every creature in the Pokémon Kingdom shares a chromosome that is identical to every other Pokémon. This chromosome was titled to P-chromosome. The genetic make up of this chromosome reacts to something that not even I understand. In ancient times, people found something that converts Pokémon into energy. Only recently though, have scientists found that this method is linked to that chromosome. Through further research, better methods of capturing have been developed Silph Co. Has funded this research so that they can earn the rights to Pokéballs, which were Silph Co.'s invention.
Before the invention of the Pokéball, Apricorns were used to store Pokémon. They used to be hollowed out and pared to serve the same purpose of a standard Pokéball. Apricorn juice is a powerful sedative for Pokémon and the juice from different colored Apricorns have different effects on Pokémon Some Pokémon have stronger reactions to the juice of certain colors than other Pokémon do. (Nidoran and their evolutions are particularly weak to Green Apricorn juice.)
White - Captures Pokémon that are extremely frightened (to the point of fleeing) - Fast Ball
Black - Captures very heavyset Pokémon - Heavy Ball
Pink - Causes a Pokémon to adore its captor - Love Ball
Green - Captures Pokémon associated with the Moon Stone - Moon Ball
Yellow - Captures Pokémon that feel intimidated - Level Ball
Blue - Captures Water Element Pokémon - Lure Ball
Though the art of Apricorn balls has been hugely out dated with the invention of Pokéballs, there are still a few masters of the trade around. Kurt, living in Azalea Town, Johto, Japan, still makes classic Apricorn balls for tourists.
As I said earlier, the mapping of the Pokémon Genome has led the path for more advanced methods of capture. Now that you know how a Pokéball turns a Pokémon into energy and how they expand and contract, you need to know haw Pokéballs keep Pokémon inside them. The answer is magnetism. Through a complex combination of powerful magnets, a Pokémon is trapped as polarized energy in the middle of a Pokéball. The inside of the red half of the sphere holds strong positive charges and the white half holds strong negative charges.
Apricorns, however, didn't use magnets. The tranquilizing effects of Apricorn juice kept Pokémon in their energy forms. Due to the fact that the Apricorn balls eventually dry up, trainers used to have their Pokémon switch into new balls every six or so months. Since Pokéballs didn't need the same treatment, they very quickly became popular.
There are several different strength of Pokéballs, all at separate prices.
Pokéball - Weak
Greatball - Medium
Hyperball - Strong - (When released in Silph Co. of America it was given the name of Ultraball)
Masterball - Perfect
I believe that is all I know about Pokéballs... If I can think of anything else, I'll write it.
Feel free to ask any question about the world of Pokémon that has yet to be answered here. I will answer as soon as I can. (Some research may be needed.)

That would explane the static discharge you see in pokemon coliseum when they return to there pokeballs. So shouldn't Elc types be easyer to catch?
01/16/2004, 02:43 PM
What about the older Pokeballs
Like the one Sammie had in the 4th movie
Like th Pokeballs in the Pokemopilis episode. (Giant Gengar/Kazam/Jiggly)
01/16/2004, 03:05 PM
Well if you look at that again, he had to go into his pack and wined the the pokeball
01/18/2004, 07:57 PM
Ahh, good old MSS... I remember the days of MSS and PokeMysteries...
In fact, I was the one that ran things at PokeMysteries (MSS was actually a different place that really was more along the lines of a traditional Pokemon site). If any of you remember that old site you should be able to remember me.
Anyway, I guess Chris was tired of waiting for me to say anthing about this. I've actually been working for the last two months on putting back together that concept (anyone that's noticed the note in my signature about "an old pokemon site being brought back from the grave", this is it). Since all the PokeGods junk has all but gone (which made up 90% of the questions I received on that site), it could really work this time around.
Now I guess since Chris has posted it here I should finish putting together the page so it can get going. Keep an eye out for it.
As far as the questions are concerned:
The Pokeball that Sammy had didn't have an automatic lock. It had to be locked and unlocked manually, as seen when he "winds up" the ball.
The "Dark Device" and the "Unearthly Urn" and the giant bell in the Pokemopolis episode worked on a different principle. Rather than just containing the energy in empty space, those devices held those energies in matter form, much along the same principles as a battery (the reason they held for so long is that batteries generate an electrical charge through a chemical reaction, a reaction that corrodes the batteries, but those devices weren't used for generating electricity or anything of the like so they were kept inert).
More questions, please.

Well... Good answers Cheney... (You gave my name so I'll give yours) But this is my topic... You can take over when I leave.
Now for another (but shorter) question:
Why does Eevee have so many evolutions?
Eevee actually only has two natural evolutions, Umbreon and Espeon. It's other evolutions were created by science. Various "elemental stones" were invented to create the other Eevee evolutions. Scientists have found that Eevee's genetic make-up is very sensitive to radiation. Specific kinds of radiation radically change their genetic coding. Even the soft ultra violet radiation of the sun changes Eevee's natural evolution of Umbreon into Espeon. After trial and error (often times resulting in tragedy), three different stone have been invented to artificially evolve Eevee.
The various evolutions are as follows:
Umbreon - Normal evolution when ultra violet radiation is low (Most usually at night)
Espeon - Normal evolution when ultra violet radiation is high (Most usually during the daytime)
Jolteon - Artifical evolution by Thunderstone (High concentrations of electromagnetic radiation)
Flareon - Artifical evolution by Firestone (High concentrations of photonic radiation)
Vaporeon -Artifical evolution by Waterstone (High concentrations of ultrasonic radiation)
The Leafstone and Sunstone were also created to evolve Eevee. The Leafstone worked on radioactive carbon and the Sunstone on ultraviolet radiation. They both failed to produce an effect on Eevee, but they had interesting effects on other Pokémon so they remain in circulation.
01/20/2004, 02:25 PM
Okay I belive the radiation part. BUT, the stones were not invented. In the ep where they find the eevee, they say there are a lot of stones in the moutian side. There for proving you worng :P
( and I thought you would have got that right T_T)
01/20/2004, 02:26 PM
Question then... Two episodes of the anime contradict your theory.
In the episode with the 3 Eevee Brothers, Team Rocket was digging for stones in the mountains. Though they were unsuccessful, the guide book clearly stated that they were unearthed from this particular mountain. Those stone's would be the Thunder Stone, Fire Stone, Leaf Stone, and Water Stone.
Another episode is when there are a bunch of Bellossem and Vileplume fighting. In certain areas, the wind contained concentrated particles of Sun Stone and in others, the Leaf Stone.
Therefore, your theory of evolution stones is technically incorrect (though I liked that way you explained the Pokeball concept).
01/20/2004, 08:59 PM
Geez... I turn my back for five minutes, and already you got people saying you're wrong. :rolleyes: :o What are we ever going to do with you.
Heheheh... You said to not say anything, so I won't. You can clear that up...
*goes back to working on bringing PokeMysteries back online*

I just knew that somebody would mention those episodes... :: Sheesh :: I can't do anything without people trying to prove me wrong. The truth of the matter is that hte traces of Sunstones and Leafstones that were found in the air were caused by the Silph Co. factories that are not far away. Two factories in particular were having an exhaust problem not long back. Somehow the pressure tanks designed to forge the raw materials into Sunstones and Leafstones cracked and leaked fragments into the furnace which were then scattered through the exhaust. The fact that same problem occurred in two separate factories have lead the local athourities to investigate possible sabotage. Silph Co. put a big hush on the matter so that their company name wouldn't be tarnished.
As for the ones in the mountains around the city that based their economy around selling "elemental stones," yes, they were found in the mountain nearby. However, they are not naturally occurring materials (or more accurately, not all of them are naturally occuring). Back during World War Two the Japanese government had stored those stones there to protect them for future use. They did not want them to fall into Allied hands if the battles started to go against their favor. The mine they were stored in was then filled in to hide the evidence. The radiation of the stones then infused other minerals around them with the same radiation thus creating more "elemental stones." So long as harvesting the stones stays at a low pace the supply will continue to replenish itself. If more people would pay attention in history class this knowledge wouldn't be so rare.
So there you have it. Conspiracy, sabotage, and government cover-up. If you people wouldn't stick your nose in federal business this information would have stayed in the shadows where it belongs...

Fish get off it. You know your wrong¬_¬
The Fish King
01/21/2004, 09:55 PM
I know... I'm sorry... So I screwed up... It had just been so long since I had seen the Eevee episode that I didn't think of it. The part about the Gloom evolving I figured was from factory exhaust like I said...
The Fish King
01/29/2004, 12:52 PM
I see that nobody is asking questions other than in response to my answers. I'm thinking that it is bacause I screwed up. Let's see if I can redeem myself.
Why do some Pokémon evolve only when they are traded?
These Pokémon do have the ability to evolve on their own. It just takes an incredibly long time. Trading a Pokémon leaves a strong mental and emotional strain on it. This raw emotion (be it releif, sorrow, anger, or any number of emotions) triggers the reaction that would evolve these creatures.
Some of the afore mentioned Pokémon are including, but not limited to:
Geodude - evolves into Golem
Kadabra - evolves into Alakazam
Machoke - evolves into Machamp
Haunter - evolves into Gengar
There are also those Pokémon that evolve through trading, but only when holding certain items. That naurally occuring king's rock has an effect on Slowpoke and Seadra. And the Metal Coat evolves Onix and Scyther. Pokémon travel through the trade machine at a molecular level and physically merge with the items they are holding.
Now it is true that these Pokémon do have the ability to evolve normally, but this process has proven to be very effective.
The Up-Grade works similarly with Porygon, but since Porygon are digital and only have a physical body when a hard light holo emitter is included with it upon purchase it works a bit differently. When Porygon travels through the trade machine the Up-Grade software kicks in and alters Porygon's digital DNA making it more efficient and versitile. Porygon may not evolve any other way.
01/29/2004, 04:05 PM
Okay heres one. Do you think the PokeNav uses GPS or something different?
(If it's GPS, then it's a pice of carp)
01/30/2004, 01:38 AM
That naurally occuring king's rock has an effect on Slowpoke and Seadra.
Side note. Kings Rock only evolves Slowpoke and Poliwhirl, Seadra evolves with a Dragon Scale. other than that, sounds plausable.....
Here is a better excuse/reason for the montain town in the Eevee episope, IMO.
While the stones are manufactured, the raw material for these stones is found here. There is a Silph Co plant in the town which produce the 3/4 stones in which the Mountain provides. While there are other sources of this material, this is the biggest concentration of it....
Something like that maybe...
01/30/2004, 05:54 PM
Very interesting idea, Fish!
I noticed you didnt mention the MIRRORS in the modern pokéballs...I figure the pokés remain in a constant laser like state, reflecting off of each mirror untill the trainer interrupts the circuit by opening the pokéball. Since the laser is no longer in constant motion, it allows the pokémon's molecules to reconfigure and regroup in the pokémon's natural state. This allows a poké to be compacted in the pokéball and normal when out....
Here's a question...how do enough Magikarp survive to Gyaradoshood for the next generation to continue on? I suspect the massive amount of progeny per Magikarp pair allows for more to survive than expired...and the Magikarps' hard scales must play a role too....
The Fish King
01/30/2004, 10:28 PM
Okay thanks for the question. About the Seadra... It was a simple mistake of trying to type without having slept in some time. Spectreon, you are right, that is a better excuse. I needed to come up with an excuse on the spot and WWII is the only thing that popped into my head.
About the PokéNav. Yes, it does run off of a Global Positioning System. It is Devon's own network of GPS satelites that run it. This network spans most of Japan and plans to mobilize satelites into China and North America soon. Some localized transmitters also are positioned on land to provide better readings even when in caves and dense forests. There have been cases of PokéNavs going out of range, but when each PokéNav returns to transmitted areas it sends an error report to Devon headquarters informing them of the "dead spot." This constant feed of reports helps Devon improve and expand their system all the time.
Concerning the mirros in the Pokéballs, your guess was very astute. While the mirrors do reflect the light, it is not to keep the energy in relative motion. Mirrors are used to refract the energy and keep it mostly spherical. It is easier to polarize energy when it is contained in a perfect shape than it is to polarize energy haphazzardly scattered about.
Yes, it is true that Magikarp have low survival rates due to predation, but they still manage to thrive because of their versitallity. Magikarp can survive in any water no matter how poluted or salty. They will eat and can digest most anything that flows into thier mouths. Also they lay approximately one thousand eggs in a life-time. However, very few - about three Magikarp out of four hundred ever evolve into Gyarados.
This is getting fun... More questions please...
01/31/2004, 02:13 PM
Glad I could help explain/bail you outta a jam.... mmmmm..... JAM..... =P......
To tired to think of question, maybe an explantion of Huntail/Gorbyss......
01/31/2004, 06:53 PM
oh, i got one! Ok, how can Snorlax not go extinct when they are asleep most of the time, and when they're awake consume so much food. To survive and coexist with other creatures, there would have to be very few and be spread out far. Snorlax couldnt afford to live in concentrated areas, so how can they keep their species alive if they as a species must be few and far? Or is my reasoning off?
In short: how come snorlax arent extinct? Will they ever go extinct? Will they force others to go extinct?
The Fish King
01/31/2004, 09:36 PM
It is true that Snorlax live few and far between, but they due happen to find mates during their breeding seasons. These usually come about once every five years and are always in the fall. Snorlax then give birth in the Spring. There are usually two or three cubs in a litter. The male does not raise the young. He leaves soon after mating and finds a place to live. The female raises the young until Fall when she leaves the cubs to find their own food. Snorlax often live in a climate where wild fruits and vegetables grow year round.
The male leaves to conserve food for the female and her litter. The female eats everything is sight for the months that she nurses. This provides for very nutritious milk.

Now here is a question I asked myself just yesterday when I saw something interesting. How many of you out there have ever heard of Misty Williams or Brock Harrison? Well I saw on those names on several sites, including this one in a previous post that I hadn't noticed until I went studying the matter. So, without further wait, here is today's question.
What are the Pokémon T.V. show's characters last names?
Well to start off with... The one's that are not under debate are Ash Ketchum, Delia Ketchum, Professor Samuel Oak, or Gary Oak. These were settled long ago in the very first episode.
What we are trying to determine are the other main characters. I will post fact when I have it, speculation where required, and my own personal beliefs as well. I will be sure to distinguish between the three so that nobody will be confused.
Misty. In the episode "The Waterflowers Of Cerulean City" we met her sisters, Daisy, Lilly, and Violet. They are referred to as The Waterflowers. This started the belief that Misty's last name was Waterflower. This however was just speculation for her The Waterflowers of Cerulean City may just be her sisters' stage name. Considering the fact that they are underwater ballerinas and are all named after flowers this may very well be the case.
Misty has also been referred to as Misty Williams. This belief stems from one of the Viz Comics. I was unable to determine which comic names her that, but many sources claim that in one of the Viz Comics about Pokémon calls her Misty Williams. With This in mind, her name in that said comic series is indeed Misty Williams, but that holds no levity in the T.V. show, which is what we are trying to determine. Many of the various comic series about Pokémon are loosely based on the television show, but stray from the main storyline enough to make any evidence taken from them moot. This is not to say that knowledge cannot be taken from them. Only when refering to the lives of Ash Ketchum and his companions does it not hold any ground.
The majority of credible Internet sites - mostly sites that sell the Pokémon videos - refer to her as Misty Williams.
My personal belief is that her name is Misty Waterflower, but my word is no more credible than any other. I believe that is her name because of the episode "The Waterflowers Of Cerulean City." I also believe that Williams is her name in the afore mentioned comic, but within that comic only.
Brock. His last name has never had any faint referrence in the T.V. show. We met his father, Stone, who left his family to... sell rocks? but no last name is given. Infact, names weren't even given to most of Brock 1200 sibling. His name was mentioned as Brock Harrison in the alleged comic that gave a last name to Misty. Again, I will give credit where credit is due and say that Brock's name is Brock Harrison in that comic and only that comic.
Since Brock's last name has not been given you are free to speculate. My speculation, which, mind you, is just a wild guess, is Stone. I came up with that name for comic relief. Think of his father and you'll get the joke. However, my opinion doesn't matter so don't take my word for it.
Everybody knows that Tracy's last name is Sketchitt, so let's move on.
James. In the episode "Holy Matrimony" we find James' parents and fiancé. James' family lives at the Rochester Estate. This has caused speculation as to whether or not James' last name is Rochester. This has yet to be proven due to the fact that James' family may have just bought the estate, or James' mother's maiden name is Rochester, they may have inherited it through aquaintance, on any number of other reasons that they have the Rochester Estate without being Rochesters.
There is also the belief that James' last name is Morgan. This also has only been brought up in speculation. This idea stems from the fact that the real Jessie James - the Old West outlaw - had the last name of Morgan.
My guess, be it true or otherwise, is that James' full name is James Rochester. Again I say that this is my oppinion and should be taken as such.
Jessie. Her last name has never been referrenced anywhere so your guess is as good as mine. Her mother's name was in a CD episode released in Japan where Giovanni's mother - head of Team Rocket at the time - sends her out to find Mew. She never returns. Her name was Miyamoto. Interestingly enough that is the last name, or more accurately the family name, of Shigeru Miyamoto, the inverntor of Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Metroid, and many other excellent video games. Or it also could be, and probably is, refering to Mushashi Miyamoto, a famous Samurai in Japanese history.
May, Max, Norman. The last name of these people have yet to be mentioned, but may in the future. My guess is that their last name is Grossfield. That is the last name of Norman Grossfield, the American Executive Producer of the show. I have seen referrences to the crew of the show in the names before so this name wouldn't suprize me. Still, that is only a guess and should not be taken too seriously.
There has also bee use of the Japanese names of the characters as their middle names. This is just a preferrence of Fan Fiction writers and also holds no ground. For those who do not know the Japanese characters' names, they are:
Satoshi - Ash - Also happens to be the name of Satoshi Tajiri, Pokémon's creator.
Shigeru - Gary - Also the Name of Shigeru Miyamoto. I sense a rivalry between them that is not confined to the show.
Kasumi - Misty - Kasumi means bubbly or misty in Japanese.
Takeshi - Brock - I have no idea what his name reffers to.
Kenji - Tracy - I also do not know what his name means.
Kojiro - James - If I'm not mistaken, Kojiro was a famous Samurai in Japan's history.
Musashi - Jessie - It refers to Mushashi Miyamoto, a famous Samurai.
That is all I know. Sorry for not coming to any conclusive answers, but there are none. Oh well, I hope you learned something. I know I did.
02/06/2004, 10:29 AM
Kojiro - James - If I'm not mistaken, Kojiro was a famous Samurai in Japan's history.
Musashi - Jessie - It refers to Mushashi Miyamoto, a famous Samurai.
I'll just give this a little more clarity, since he's not too farmiliar with it.
Musashi Miyamoto (the person Jesse's japanese name was taken from)was a famous samurai (and I believe he was ronin also, but I don't remember right now). His equal and rival was a man named Kojiro Sasaki (the man James's japanese name is taken from).
02/13/2004, 02:33 PM
Okay we've lreaning rocks in earth since rigth now. And got to thinking, what kinda of rock are evo. stones. Are they igneous, sediment, or matemorphic?
(sorry for spelling)
02/13/2004, 07:50 PM
I would personally like to see more of the Legendary Pokemon Heirarchy. Like who created whom and such, what each legendary guards and so forth. I know there are a lot of conflicting theories out there, and would like to see a "proper" (if you can call it that) opinion on the matter. :D
02/15/2004, 10:49 AM
Here's a question that has been bouncing around in my mind since i saw a 20's Gangsters documentary on the history channel recently:
What was Team Rocket's role in the Age of the Gangster (Tommy Guns, pin stripes, and corruption) in the US?
Did the Rockets seize a stake in the prohibition game? Were the Rockets even present int he US? Did the Rockets ever do business with US gangsters?
02/15/2004, 09:51 PM
Would Latios and Latias be extinct? There are only a pair of them left and if u saw the fifth movie, Lati@s' dad is Latios. Does that mean they would go extinct because Latios and Latias which were in the movie were brother and sister? They can't breed... How do they get more Lati@s?
The Fish King
02/17/2004, 01:03 PM
YIKES!!! I'm not able to get on the net for a weekend and fourty questions pop up! What to do? What to do?
Okay, one at a time...
Evolution stones are several different types of rock.
Leaf stones are a form of petrified, sedimentary rock.
Fire stones are a porous igneous rock.
Water stones are a glassy igneaous rock.
Thunder stones are a metamorphic rock that is formed from various other minerals.
Sun stones are also a very porous igneous rock.
Moon stones are radioactive meteorites.
King's rocks are sedimentary rocks.
Team Rocket in the early 1900's...
Team Rocket has been a family "business" since the 1920's. A man named Giovanni started a money laundering scheme that involved Pokémon daycare centers. Giovanni's "associates" would bring in their Pokémon to raise their Pokémon, always paying in cash. The money was then supposedly used to raise the Pokémon.
Control of the "business" was transferred to Giovanni's daughter, known fron that time on only as Madam Boss, in the mid 50's. By this time, Team Rocket had expanded throughout Japan and the police knew that their corporation was not entirely legal, but whenever hard evidence showed up, it turned up missing within a day. Madam Boss expanded the "business" to run casinos. She also set up a "research team" to go out and collect strong and rare Pokémon. This "research team" usually went around to talk to trainers and "persuade" them into donating their Pokémon to Team Rocket.
When the 80's rolled around, Madam Boss turned up missing. It was at that point that her son, Giovanni, took over as head of the company. He expanded the business internationally, setting up chapters in China, USA, and Austrailia. In the early 90's he started a "scientific studies" program to develop stronger and healthier Pokémon. Late into the program, an accident happened on New Island and the project has since been scaled down.
Team Rocket's "entrepenureal endeavors" in the new mellenium contunue to remain under close guard.
Lengendary Pokémon... This one's a doozy.
When the world was being born there existed two Pokémon whose power surpassed all others. One controlled all that was water and the other possessed all the powers of land. Their names were Kyogre and Groudon. They fought a war that changed the Earth as we know it. It lasted eons upon eons. Their struggle caused the continents to be raised up and the oceans to cover the Earth.
Then, one day two creatures came forth to confront the great monsters. These two knew that this fight was wrong and that peace needed to return the world. They were known as Latios and Latias. To stop the fight between Kyogre and Groudon, they gave up their lives and formed a red and a blue orb. Each had the power to sedate the beasts. At that point Kyogre and Groudon both fell into deep sleeps.
With the reign of peace starting on Earth, a Pokémon was born from the ashes left from the tumult. This Pokémon was Ho-oh. Being grieved from the loss of both Latios and Latias for their heroic effort that ended the war, she granted them back their lives. Fearing that war may again break out, Ho-oh discussed with Latios and Latias in order to make a plan to prevent it. It was decided that the powers of the elements should be separated and kept safe by those who can control them. At that point Ho-oh created the three Titans of Fire, Ice, and Electricity, as well as the Guardian of the Waters.
Articuno. She was given control of ice. It was her duty to make certain that the seasons of Earth maintain their cycles.
Moltres. He was given control of fire. It was up to him to make sure that the Earth was kept warm and that light would be given to all of its inhabitants.
Zapdos. He was given control of electricity. It was his job to make sure that Articuno and Moltres maintained their jobs. If ever they were unable to fulfill their duties, he would need to take their place.
Lugia. He was given control of water. He was entrusted with the job of providing water and rain for the inhabitants of Earth.
When Ho-oh saw that peace would remain so long as her children did thier jobs, she decided that the last great power of Earth should remain with her. That power was Life.
Time went on and the world was peaceful... Until humans came along. Humans brought hatred, pain, war, and death. They sought power over all things that lived on the Earth. Their wars cost many lives, but none grieved Ho-oh so much as when three innocent Pokémon lost their lives in a burning tower set aflame by humans during one of their wars. Those three Pokémon knew nothing or hatred or war or death. Ho-oh decided to intervene. She took the souls of those Pokémon and gave them new bodies. She gave them speed so that they could run from any danger and never be hurt by humans again. She gave them the job of Watchers. They were to search the land until they found a human who lived and loved without hatred, war, pain, or death. That human could be used as an example for all humans as to how life should be. Those three Pokémon were Entei, Raikou, and Suicune.
Completely unrelated to this story is the story of Mew. A long time ago a race of Pokémon from another solar system, known as the Mew, were enslaved by a powerful species known as the Missingno. A small group of Mew were able to escape the tyranny of the Missingno as stowaways on a spaceship that was used to trade resources between the different planets inhabited by the Missingno. Unfortunately, their plan was discovered and their ship was severely damaged by the Missingno military. The ship crash landed on Earth and a small group of the Mew survived as well as the Missingno crew who piloted the ship. Realizing the situation that they were in, the Mew and the Missingno parted ways never to talk to or mention each other again.
This is all I have time to explain for now. Stay tuned for future installments.
02/17/2004, 01:20 PM
where do the Regi Pokemon fit in all of that.... Or Rayquazza?
Freaky, a planet run by Missingno., that frightens me...lol
02/17/2004, 02:57 PM
Good explinations. The Missingno/Mew one did strike me as being too far fetched (no pun intended), but it was still cool though.
02/17/2004, 03:44 PM
A few other questions: What about Arcanine? It is "listed" as a legandary pokemon. Lugia and mew are the only legendary psychic pokemon (I might be missing something as im kinda tired) and Lugia probably gets that power from controling the currents, so could mew have had to develop their minds to combat very "buff" missingno? On the note of Lugia, how does it get Aeroblast, when AER means AIR in Latin/greek. Hoed Skarmory play into this? Also, does this mean that Japan is the "cradile of life" for pokemon, as egypt, mesopotamia, ad the yellow river were for humans? Great job on this thread! Lovin' it! :D

Oh, alright here's one, but I challenge you: don't use an already established answer from another source (i.e. comics by one Toshihiro Ono, author of one of the greatest pokélores ever!)...this challenge is optional, you can always tweak theories..
The question: How come kids around Japan (at least) are allowed to dangerously run errant around the world, neglecting school? What is the reasoning/legality behind this? Have there been protests? Were child trainers always allowed to wander young? Was the training age always 10? Maybe that's something...the age started out high, but lowered after a few decades or something...
So, yeah...hop to it!

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To many questions!!!
Okay... I can do this. Where do I start???
I have a plan! On Friday night, I will spend the night with my fellow Salt Lake City Pokémon Professors as a going away bash as I leave on my religious mission. We will take all the questions that are unaswered and put them to rest then. Feel free to post as many questions as you want until then. Remember, this is going to me my last chance to answer these questions, so get all of them in while you still can!

heres a dumb question.....
If your Pokemon uses Dive, how do you breath underwater
Or with Surf/Fly, how does a Pokemon much smaller than you transport you around? Some just make no sense... Pidgey cant carry a fullsized person, neither can something like Corsola....

Sorry for not posting answers to your questions, but the Internet at my friends house broke! I must say that this has been a fun topic I've had the pleasure to run, but all good things must come to an end. Not only must I say goodbye to this topic, but to this entire board as I will not be coming here for a few years.
At this time I hand over this post and all rights and responibilites that accompany it to The Anaconda. He will take on the responsibilties of answering your questions from this point on. You will find his ideas to be as insiteful and interesting as you did my own.
With that I bid thee farewell and I hope that all your dreams may come true.
