I was brainstorming fun thread ideas last night and i thought it would be cool to have a place to put all our random pokemon thoughts. Doesnt have to make sense, doesnt have to have any real logic, just fun, dumb stuff you dont usually say out loud. Ive got a couple.
I always thought it was weird we got a dark type eevee evolution before we got grass or ice.
What if 2 shellder bites a slowpoke at the same, like one on the head and the tail?
Feel free to discuss each others random thoughts and debate but keep it light hearted and fun please! Ill have more, i have thoughts like this all the time
I’ve always been very interested in the food situation in the Pokemon world. What level are Pokemon eaten? By humans as well as other Pokemon. The anime is contradictory in what is says, but the Pokedex has clear examples of…same thing with the presence of IRL animals or just non-Pokemon animals. Really gets the mind racing.
@ReganRampage New slowpoke evolution. Probably looks like sir fetchd except with a helmet and shield.
@mrbubbles Im sure there are ADA requirements in the pokemon world or service pokemon.
Im less worried about baseball and more worried that high level trainers could become snipers, “I see a Rhydon at 60M, windspeed 8kph SE, adjust throwing angle and speed, going to try a throw with a great ball and… Yes! Caught it!”
And for your last question, I find it more strange that pokemon make sounds that are in the same realm of language. Cats and dogs dont make the human estimations like “meow” or “bark”, why does a bulbasaur say “bulba-saur” so clearly? Even weirder with meowth, slowking, and the other pokemon that can speak english.
Id like to point out that this was just their fantasy since they found out that magikarp are a trash fish for eating and essentially inedible… but to get the idea they had to know of other fish that this could be possible with.
It is possible then that language itself evolved around sounds that are made by Pokemon? I am not sure who was first, but if humans saw a bunch of Pokemon running around making sounds that made sense to them, I guess over the course of the cultural evolution, language developed around those sounds. I mean in Pokemon games we already see that the alphabets are very different.
So we have literal cosmic entities, pokemon that control natural phenomenon, and pokemon that destroy concepts such as time and space. Why is the pokemon world not more advanced? Was there really some humanity destroying war that happened that set everything back a hundred years? Or are they actually very advanced and purposely decided to limit normal societal potential? I mean they do have teleporters, massive machines, ability to enslave creature for life, floating display screens, even direct deposit, and all of these things are just existing in the world, they dont even seem to pay taxes for it.
Because everytime someone is working or fixing something and they see a 10 year old passing by making some eye contact, they just stop everything and start Pokemon battles. How do you get stuff done like that.
