Top 5 Pokemon Theories
With the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Moon, we look back at our favorite Pokemon theories
3. Pokemon War Theory
This theory has been spinning around forever, and would be a disservice to leave out. It's thought that there was a great war before the events of Pokemon Red and blue. To quote a Creepy Pasta post:
You have no father, and your best friend is an orphan.
Children are going to a journey around the world.
Your mother accepts you as the man of the house, making your own decisions.
Old man warns you of dangers around the corner.
Most people you meet are children and/or gym leaders.
Most adult men are either very old, or have a job related to the military or organized crime.
Hospitals and gyms are everywhere, but no forms of entertainment such as movie theaters.
LT Surge tells you: ""Hey kid! What do you think you're doing here? You won't live long in combat! That's for sure! I tell you what kid, electric Pokèmon saved me during the war!"
You now realize that there was a war in Kanto.
Your father died, and your rival lost his parents.
You are among the first generation of people to live in peace at post-war time.
Now of course, this is more of a fun theory to explain some of the glaring plot holes in the Pokemon world, but it does fit neatly into the mythos. LT. Surge's mere existence is what brought this theory to life. He vaguely mentions a war, but doesn't expand upon it. This happens in fiction all the time, but over the years, more and more of the evidence talked about piled up, making this one a plausible theory.
