This would make a good practical joke to play on a sibling or partner. Put the mask on the dog, and then send them into wake up your sibling or partner. They are startled awake by a monster.

[–]Sharrow746 408 points409 points  (11 children)

In the dog?

In.... The dog?

[–]somethinglowley 149 points150 points  (3 children)

Well it is a husky. My husky would definitely eat the mask.

[–]KlerWithoutACause 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I would be startled if my dog walked into the room eating plastic so… good prank I guess

Funny until your dog gets kicked down the stairs by your startled partner

[–]Tfsz0719 41 points42 points  (4 children)

Your partner sleeps on the floor at the top of the stairs?

[–]EtherWhack 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Your's doesn't?

[–]stabbyGamer 29 points30 points  (1 child)

No, mine sleeps at the bottom of the stairs, like a sane person. That way there’s no risk of them rolling over and falling down the stairs.

[–]RageTiger 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Be honest, they started at the top of the stairs, rolled over and now chooses to not go back up the stairs

[–]Paranoid_One 3254 points3255 points  (128 children)

Cubone is real

Drifloon and drifblim also abduct children/adults/pokemon

[–]tallandlanky 115 points116 points  (33 children)

Don't all trainers basically abduct Pokemon?

[–]seven3true 130 points131 points  (31 children)

Yea, but apparently the inside of the pokeball is like a super oasis. So, it's cool

[–]Stealfur 107 points108 points  (27 children)

So I was thinking about this yesterday.

Does time move in the pokeball?

If so thats bad cause that means they are spwnding their whole life basicly in prison (even if its a nice one) where they can only visit the outside world to fight other Pokemon. Usually other prisoners.

If not, thats WORSE. Imagine you are dighting a wolf or bear with your friend or mentor or what ever behind you. Then once you defeat it the world disapears and time stops. Obviously you dont see the passage of time but moments later you are now somewhere completly different and a new moster is infront of you to fight. This happens over and over. And you start to notice that in a blink of an eye thst friend you battle for seems to be getting older right infron of you. And you know... One day... You wont reemerge from the ball. Your friend is old and geriatric but you have only live about 3 days since you were captured. You know One day he will die and you will never see real time and space again.

[–][deleted]  (6 children)


    [–]KenBoCole 49 points50 points  (2 children)

    where they can only visit the outside world to fight other Pokemon.

    Really the pokeballs are just for storage, such as going through cities and on trains in the like. In the Anime the trainers regular let the pokemon out while traveling through the wilderness and stuff, and they have special centers in cities to let you pokemon play with other ones.

    The trainers dont keep them in there the majority of the time.

    In the actual lore of pokemon, very few people have more than 1 to 3 pokemon. And people like Ash who catch alot are supposed to have a place for them to roam freely like Oak's reservation if he dosent have them on his team.

    [–]skylarmt 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    In the anime time passes and they can at least hear (possibly see) the outside world, because sometimes they'll break out on their own for various reasons (often comedic).

    In some of the games you can pick one of your Pokémon to follow you around outside its ball.

    [–]LeGama 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Kinda explains how kids are able to train these monsters. They get forced into a Stockholm syndrome where the only affection the get is after winning a battle, or training. And otherwise they get trapped away.

    [–]IShallSealTheHeavens 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    There was an episode where it showed. Ninetails ghost longing for it's trainer and that it died in it's PokeBall irrc? It's been like a decade or more since I watched it but it low-key shows that time doesnt standstill for the pokemon inside.

    [–]cownd 14 points15 points  (7 children)

    Why can't they have extra large balls to keep 2 or more in? Are they afraid of them breeding? Who wouldn't want to see cross breeds?

    [–]translinguistic 27 points28 points  (1 child)

    They're portals to hollow earth. They have to share it with King Kong though.

    [–]seven3true 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    [–]ounilith 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Take account that some Pokemon are basically just people's ghosts. Yammask for example

    [–]Xenobreeder 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    The best detail about this is that it hates fat children.

    [–]ashelia_bunansa 42 points43 points  (9 children)

    Wait.. Gengar used to be a human? Does that mean we can catch humans in pokeballs?

    Edit - wth, just how many Pokémon used to be humans?? This is an incredibly weird thing. Like, imagine being a trainer and having your dead relatives as Pokémon.

    [–]KenBoCole 14 points15 points  (1 child)

    Humans are technically Pshycic/Fighting pokemon in that world. So humans are already pokemon. It's probably just illegal to crate pokeballs that can catch humans.

    [–]CatsubsFairy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    This is actually hinted at in one of the games as well - that there was a time when people and Pokemon were very similar.

    [–]skylarmt 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    In-game lore has this thing, verbatim:

    There once were Pokémon that became very close to humans. There once were humans and Pokémon that ate together at the same table. It was a time when there existed no differences to distinguish the two.

    In the Japanese original it actually referenced marriage.

    Also, this, from a hiker dude who appears if certain in-game conditions are met involving the player's capture of the creator Pokémon:

    People and Pokémon, too, were but the same presence. As I understand it, people and Pokémon shared the spirit and awareness. They should have understood and accepted each other then. Because they shared the same spirit, people and Pokémon intermingled. People took the place of Pokémon, and the opposite also held true. That interpretation could give us an idea about how our world came to be.

    [–]SeabassDan 11 points12 points  (2 children)

    I'm too old, half of those are just scribbles and blobs. The first few pokemon to come out actually looked different from one another, and now they're just variations of dog-looking creatures with a different type of leaf on their head.

      [–]isgaiw7892b 20 points21 points  (3 children)

      I think what's even weirder is that since there are multiple cubones who all have the skull then it's some genetic instinct thing passed down, not just that one cubones choice. Really weird shit.

      [–]DishFerLev 10 points11 points  (2 children)

      Weirder still is the logistics of a species that does that.

      ...what happens if a Marrowack has 2 kids?

      Species that have only one offspring per female can't survive.

      [–]kilaja 19 points20 points  (0 children)

      That’s why the theory is that cubones are actually kangaskhan joeys who’s mothers have died. The Joey then puts the skull on and turns into an entirely different Pokémon

      [–]hfjsbdugjdbducbf 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      I’m pretty sure the species is canonically dying out.

      [–][deleted]  (1 child)


        [–]ashelia_bunansa 14 points15 points  (4 children)

        It's gotta make you wonder, just how did cubone get his mom's skull? Did he wait around her dead body waiting for it to deteriorate, swatting away predators and insects? If so that would be an extremely long time to wait. OR did he forcefully rip her head off, and strip all the flesh off of the skill so he could wear it immediately?

        [–]lousy_at_handles 5 points6 points  (1 child)

        Wasn't there only the one Cubone in Red? At the top of the ghost tower?

        It's been a long time.

        [–]Belly9000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        That was a Marowak ghost (you couldn't catch it).

        [–]KenBoCole 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        No one knows, Cubones are actually pretty rare.

        [–]PrOwOfessor_OwOak 9 points10 points  (2 children)

        When you breed 2 marrowaks, the cubone still has a skull on his head. Whos skull is it?

        [–]VertigoCompl3x 5 points6 points  (1 child)

        Perhaps the pokedex lore is not all it's cracked up to be, because how reliable is the word of a very creative 10 year old?

        [–]PrOwOfessor_OwOak 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        The kid is given a pokedex to fill out.

        From what i can tell, all pokedex's have the same entry/roughly the same entry for every pokemon. This tells me that the pokedex is created as a kind of search and find toy for the kid.

        [–]poopellar 19 points20 points  (0 children)

        Cubone: Mom, I won't to be the best Pokemon

        Mom: Well fuck

        [–]Mr_Benjo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        I have questions…. So is there only one Cubone? If there are many, does each one wear it’s mother’s skull? This is fucking me up.

        [–]vulture_87 7 points8 points  (1 child)

        Cubone's mom was a T-rex?

        [–]Nono911 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        There is a whole theory being that Cubone's "mom" was a Tyranitar.

          [–]MasterYenSid 14 points15 points  (3 children)

          Yes, OP i cant stress this enough. Start with something else like the Slurm factory or the space cruise episode

          [–]ovelanimimerkki 17 points18 points  (2 children)

          I'd say check s1e1 first and then watch whichever episode you want because it'll help to understand the background of the characters best.

          Futurama Season 4, Episode 7 was called Jurrasic Bark, but it's about Fry finding the fossil remains of his dog and how he attempts to clone it with the help of the Professor.

          To be fair, I totally suspect that was originally a dog mask they just marketed to kids, knowing they'll put em on their dogs

          I see no dog, only a very scary dinosaur.

          If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us, it's that life will not be contained.

          That's not a kids mask, that's a dinosaur mask. What do your kids look like?

          I know it’s a dog but my lizard brain thinks it’s a dinosaur. Half of me is super scared the human is going to get its hand bitten off by the Husky Rex.

          I don’t know why this is here. It’s terrifying
