I think that Substitute works the same way as Double Team, except you only make one copy of yourself. When the foe attacks the copy, it disappears, and the real one comes from out of nowhere and attacks.

If you read Hoenn Mirror World (chapter 4 is when Mariah uses her Shuckle's Substitute), you'll understand.

In other words, I think the transferring of pokemon in the trade process provides the correct "spark" needed.


As for the substitute move, I think the pokemon using it asks the other one to turn around, then it runs to a store and buys a pwushie (taking some damage for not having the proper cash on hand), then shows up on the battle with it. It then places it on the field, hides behind the trainer (even ones like Wailord), and says the other one can turn back around and continue fighting.
XD @ second statement. Heh... I agree that something sparks the evolution during a trade... maybe that is what the trade machine is for... also to register the trade with the goverment and other changes that need to be made.

Yeah, perhaps changing it's code for the proper boxes as well as new voice recognition or something to understand the new trainers.

Here's another mystery. The button on pokeballs seems to have two functions: to shrink/unshrink the ball, and to release the pokemon when you don't actually speak for it to come out (seems like it's only used in those instances when you don't hear "I choose you!" or whatnot). How does it know what you want it to do?

Maybe it's a command. Say, when you enlarge the pokeball i'm pretty sure you don't speak. But when you release the pokemon out of it's pokeball, most trainer's use a battle cry, or "I choose you!" or soemthing like that. Or maybe there are different sections of the Pokeball button. One half to enlargen the ball, and or shrink it, and one to release the pokemon. This is hard, making science out of a anime.

Especially one as fanciful as Pokémon, seeing as nothing is a.) explained by magic or b.) explained by science.

I think Confusion is actually temporrarily ellipsy (or however ya spell it).

On the subject of Substitute...

I don't guess it could work like that type of ninjitsu, where the user is able to make some inanimate object, like a log, appear as a duplicate?

Maybe if they are loyal enough... the trainer and pokemon have a telepathic connection... like how trainers are able to know how their pokemon are feeling... maybe the mon know when or when not to come out... but if they are unloyal... like too strong or at too high of a level... they do what they want... (ie. Charizard and Ash)

That's why opponent trainers don't give that much money...

I feel sorry for the plushie, it deserves a nice and happy burial.

Actually, that's why you see everyone walking. There's so many substitute moves a day that traffic is taken up with all the funeral lines for the plushies.
