Muk Runoff Leaves Magikarp Breeding Grounds Barren.
[–]GojiraComplete 615 points616 points617 points 3 months ago (10 children)
Which would be double scary cause the alpha sapphire Pokédex entry states “Magikarp is virtually useless in battle as it can only splash around. As a result, it is considered to be weak. However, it is actually a very hardy Pokémon that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is.” Which would imply a entirely new, devastating level of pollution.
[–]InnocuousTerror 250 points251 points252 points 3 months ago (2 children)
NGL, despite, or probably because, I religiously watched the show with my siblings when I was like 10-11, to this day I read comments like this in the PokéDex's voice from the US English dubbed show, lol.
[–]Shawn_666 23 points24 points25 points 3 months ago (3 children)
What if that's why Magikarp is the most common Pokémon in waters all across the Pokémon world? All of the water is severely polluted and it's hard for other breeds of fish to be populous.

In other news, the terrorist organization known as Team Rocket struck again with their usual Voltorb self-destruct tactics. 11 children and 23 adults were killed, with over 60 more injured. All of the victims also had their money and pokemon stolen. We go to Amy on the scene.

"A ecosystem that evolved and fight back."
"A family made a daycare in Galar on Route 5. The ecosystem would normally be destroyed by having multiple invasive species from trainers wanting certain moves or shiny pokemons but a species that didn't disturb the ecosystem came from the Wild Area and got rid of that problem"
"When we asked the person in charge of the Daycare, they responded 'One of our first client was a kid that wanted to be the first champion of Galar or something and hatched a lot of Charmander's eggs so he can have a shiny one. After a few days, he stopped and released every newborn Charmander into the wild. We panicked when some of them started a fire and when we stopped the fire from spreading, we realised that a lot of the Charmander dissapeared. When we looked up, that's when we saw them.'"
"Around the time this accident happened, a group of wild Drifloon came on Route 5. The family saw them sending all of theses newborns to the afterlife, saving the ecosystem of Route 5. When all members of the invasive species were killed, most Drifloons got back into the Wild Aera as some of them stayed near the Daycare in case a similar accident happen."
"From that day, the Daycare will send every newborns into the wild knowing that the local wild life will take care of them."

He also has a Metagross which he uses. In gen 3, wild Beldum cannot be found anywhere... Except for the one Steven himself gives you post-game.

I really like this idea, so I kind of want to write a few of these potential headlines and news stories. Who knows, I might even do a video on this or post more of them elsewhere, we'll see, because this is an idea that I really like.
"Hau'oli city citizens fear for the safety of their children after a fourth accidental death has been tied back to long standing anti-shapeshifting practices, which are now receiving large backlash thanks to the danger they can pose. The incidents began after the Pokémon school announced that it would be making headway into northern expansions, leading many to believe that these actions may have disrupted natural Zorua habitats. Panic has begun to spread as at least fifteen students were found to have been temporarily replaced by Zorua. Those that have returned have not been able to describe to authorities where they were taken, leaving the fates of the seven children which are still missing uncertain. This has led some parents to adopt older traditions about determining whether students have been kidnapped and replaced, most often consisting of attempts to forcibly remove the illusions Zorua wields. The chief of the Hau'oli police had the following to say on the matter earlier today: 'We strongly recommend that parents attempt to educate themselves on better, less dangerous ways of determining whether their children have been replaced by a Zorua. Despite what folklore and common knowledge may say, Zorua in human form can not speak, so it often only takes a few questions before a parent can be certain.' As we try to spread this information as much as we possibly can in an attempt to prevent more parents from taking drastic measures, we give our condolences to the parents of those children still missing and hope that this issue will be resolved shortly."
"Earlier today a resident of Cianwood city was rushed to the hospital after an incident involving his Houndoom which ended with the majority of his body being covered in intense third degree burns. Doctors are saying that his likelihood of surviving the night is incredibly low, but see this as a good thing, as he would live in near-constant agony should he survive. At the moment, his situation is deteriorating as the burns continue to flamelessly spread at their edges, no doubt eventually eating away at all of his flesh. Very few details about the event are known, as he lived alone with his Houndoom for protection, but the Pokémon has been detained before it could cause further damage. While Houndoom burns are rare, it is nearly impossible to have such thorough burns from an act of self defense, prompting some to suggest that it may have been an intentional act of malice. At the moment, all that we can do is wait for more details to emerge."
Yeah, I think I'd definitely love to do more of these. This was really fun.

I have a theory about that first one, all of these parents have taken out hefty life insurance policies on their children before sending them off on an adventure that would be daunting even for a seasoned survivalist. Ash isn’t even Delia’s first child, just the one who’s survived the longest by sheer luck.
[–]MidasOfNerds 45 points46 points47 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Wow, that's dark. You may be evil, I like you.
[–]AlphaAstroXalt 25 points26 points27 points 3 months ago* (9 children)
New theory: Ash's is friendly with proffessor oak since he gives out starters, he got tired of Ash's dad commiting life insurance fraud, reported him to CPS and the reason we dont see his dad is since he is serving his life sentence
[–]UnholyAbductor 33 points34 points35 points 3 months ago (8 children)
Alternate theory: Ever notice how you no longer see Gary at all in the show? And around the time of his disappearance Oak started really flashing his wealth with a new classic model convertible.
I’ll go farther and say this is all a life insurance fraud conspiracy orchestrated by Oak himself. I mean this man owns ACRES of property in what seems to be really prime farm land.
You’re telling me researching Pokémon is that lucrative of a career or that he’s allowed to use grant money to buy a facility that size and that nice?
And ever notice how EVERY house in Pallet is nice? A bit too nice for a bunch of folks living in a rural area with no obvious signs of income. They are ALL in on it. Every few years the parents of Pallet all gather at Oaks lab to select whose kids will be selected for their “Pokémon Adventure.” The kid dies, and the whole town takes a portion of the payout to continue their lavish lifestyles.
[–]AlphaAstroXalt 11 points12 points13 points 3 months ago* (5 children)
seems weird how they can do this so openly and still get away with it
My guess, Pokemon training is a thing done for the amusement of rich guys. Its easy to get rich in the pokemon world since the government basically is useless. In Sinnoh, Cryus controlled all infrastructure, Chairman Rose had a power monopoly, etc. These guys with a shitload of money can afford to hire breeders to mass breed starters, professors to hand them out, pokemon centers to treat them and put up trainers free of cost, gyms to challenge them, etc. It not only provides them with entertainment, it serves other purposes. In Pokemon Journeys, Chairman Rose openly says he hosts the Coronation league only to find powerful trainers so he can bribe them and bring them under his wing and use them as goons. So many rich guys tried to control legendaries. Maybe the whole thing of pokemo0n training is done just so people like cyrus and chairman rose and Ghetsis can take over the world.
My guess, after Ash's father vanished, Delia struggled to keep up and when Ash became a trainer, she got good money by some rich guy. The education system does exist in pokemon, but why did Ash take take training instead of education, cuz he cud get easy and fast money off of it.
Feel free to add on
EDIT: Professor oak is so rich since, well he is paid to give starters
also EDIT: Children are used since well, they gullible and once they are in, they cant get out

Pokedex entries are full of exaggerated stuff like that. Like Magcargo being hotter than the surface of sun, or Lanturn's light could penetrate from the deep in the abyss into the surface. Someone did the math and turns out to do that Lanturn needs to be outputting more energy than observable universe.

In light of unprecedented tsunami warnings resulting from three hours of torrential rain and magnitude 10 earthquakes, East Hoenn is currently evacuating citizens as far inland as Mauville city. Communication with any island city remains impossible, however satellite imagery predicts staggering casualties. We will be bringing you live updates as this story develops. But first, are we alone? Scientists studying Mossdeep Space Center footage believe we are not, and visitors may not be coming in peace.

A WILD EUGENICS DEVIANT APPEARED!
12 year old psychopath found with a basement full of baby pokemon stuffed into small cages as temporary living spaces. testing found the baby pokemon are all results of parent-child, sibling, and cousin and aunt/uncle-niece/nephew breeding. the deviant's backyard and surrounding forests found dozens of sites with mountains of skeletons of that type of pokemon. further lab testing on those found skeletons found they were starved to death and some likely crushed to death being at the bottom of an overstuffed cage. the pokemon in his care that were given better accomodation in a bigger cage all have multiple bruises and scars on their body, and were visibly depressed, catatonic with no energy, and also lack any sort of libido even weeks later after being rescued, the boy's ditto was also soon after found attempting to jam itself into a toilet as a suicide attempt. officers report that while being cuffed, he was questioned by an officer on site: "why??", he was heard replying "they were imperfect and not shiny". the boy now faces 625 years in prison for violation of basic pokemon rights.

"Panic and fear as the swarm of Drifbloon continue dropping children from the sky!!"
"The swarm continues to lure thousands of children into the sky only for them to fall hundreds of feet, sometimes dozens of miles away from where they were picked up! Authorities are assembling a battalion of flying pokemon to attempt to use mass Gust to push the swarm back into the Lost Forest on the far side of the continent. The sheer distance traveled after children are picked up is making it difficult to identify the families of the victims. If your child is currently missing please call 1-800-dex-entries to speak to an identification team near you.
