Top 5 Pokemon Theories
With the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Moon, we look back at our favorite Pokemon theories
4. Koffing & Weezing: A Team Rocket Experement
Koffing and Weezing are a strange set of Pokemon to be wandering around in the natural world. You'll have to use a little suspension of disbelief on this one to see where we're going with it, because of course MOST Pokemon make no sense in a natural world.
Koffing and Weezing seem to be an embodiment of pollution, which is mostly a human creation, so how much of a stretch is it to say that these pokemon were a human inventions? They even have a human warning label on them: A skull and Crossbones.
Most Team Rocket grunts use Koffing or Weezing, and yet they're only found in the Factory in Pokemon Red & Blue. Theory: Team Rocket created Koffing and Weezing and the factory was theirs.
According to a Reddit post about this theory, there weren't many Ghost pokemon in generation 1 (There was only Gastly, Haunter and Gengar) but ghosts would make excellent thieves as they can go through walls, disappear and scare victims.
But in classic Team Rocket fashion, instead of legitimately trying to catch Ghost pokemon to attain these qualities, they tried to cheat and make their own. Needless to say, it didn't go very well, but they were left with an untold number of failed experiments. What better thing to with those failed ghosts than to give them to the lower ranks of your army?
