I say: Nay!!!

Wait, wrong statement...

Anyway, I think we could blame Alakazam for the rare candies. They use their brains to make pokemon training much easier...luckily their factories are deep underground and many of the candy convoys suffer "cave ins" If they didn't, many Lvl. 100s would be walking around...

It's like whirlwind/roar in reverse. First the pokemon executing the move will retreat like a little chicken then the trainer will have to force another pokemon out - or something - I dunno I never really used subsitute so I have no clue what it is

XD... in game, it creates a decoy to take damage, after taking damage from itself of course.

Hmm, then there must be a conspiracy.

*Imagines trainer ordering a pokemon to do subsitute, then sending out a ditto to take damage*

Okay... that aint exactly how it works, but okay

I imagine the mon concentrating real hard, creating a holographic version of itself that the foe attacks instead of it maybe... I don't know XD.

How about something new?



How did some pokemon get thier natural powers such as Fire pokemon using fire attacks, but normal pokemon are just normal?



^^ Sorry. It's hard to debate about pokemon.

On Pokeballs:

It's common knowledge that a Pokeball contains a small environment specifically developed for the Pokemon's type, correct? The small metal plates that you see inside are part of the capturing mechanism, and maybe they are mirrors, but I think that they might be parts of a set of microcomputers. The microcomputers would create the environment instantly, would they not? This envrionment theory means that the Pokemon would remain affected by status effects, and remain tired, but it would also have a chance to eat, sleep, and the like. As a trainer keeps going without having the Pokemon healed, the status effects continue.

On PCs and the transportation of Pokeballs and the storage of material items:

I read once, in an old issue of Nintendo Power, that there was a group of Japanese scientists attempting to make a warp point and a recieving point. I don't remember the particulars, but it was something about using tubes like in Super Mario, and making the item almost instantly appear in the location of the other using some kind of vaccum and something about warping space and time. Anyway, it's possible that this could be used. I would elaborate more, but I've got to jet.

*is happy so many people like my thread*


First, I'd like to say that most of the facts given in the anime/poket trainer's guide/etc. (i.e. Alakazam's IQ is 3000 or whatever) are rediculous exagerations that were writen just to get kids (I mean little kids) into that certain pokémon. Okay, on previous subjects:

On pokéballs:
As I've said, you can probably forget most of that stuff in the anime; it's far to fanciful. They could work...hm...okay, the pokémon is "beamed up" into the pokéball. The laser you see might scan the pokémon, and when I mean scan, I mean scan every single atom/sub-particle/whatever, transfering it into the pokéball in a much smaller size. If this was true a.) the entire process would take hours, if not days, thus b.) befriending the pokémon and letting walk with you would be a better idea. Also, the "struggling" would not be inside the pokéball, but durring the scanning process. The shrunken poké, inside the ball, would also have the same mass as its full-size pokés, but increadibly dense. Maybe, instead of having to lug around a ball that weighs a ton (sometimes litterally) a gravity-transfluxer (lol, just made that word up ) thingy would manipulate the gravity inside the pokéball, thus lighting you load dramatically. The gravity-thingy would also bend time, so pokémon wouldn't mind living inside for years or longer, as it might feel like just a few minutes (or less)—but it might make time longer....uh, it's just too complicated to comprehend!!!! (I could ramble on some more, but I'll spare you the misery.)

On PC's:

I doubt that the PC's actually teleports the pokéball, but instead litterally stores pokéballs in a huge underground vault. You activate your acount with like one of those triangular key-thingys in the Da Vinci Code and a password (most likely one with like twenty characters) so no one will steel anyone else's pokémon. You'd insert your pokéball in one of those airtubes things (like those where you put a check in that cyllinder at the bank) to sore them. The ball would land somewhere inside the underground vault, a robotic arm would pick it up, and carry it to the next empty spot in your "box" storage thing. Of course, you pay a big sum every month. Of course, just like pokéballs, these wouldn't be manditory, just a convenience.

eh, I think that's enough for now.

Hm...Well, on the subject of an Alakazam's intelligence affecting loyalty...

Frankly, I wouldn't see that as a very big factor, if that Alakazam was captured while it was an Abra and has had time to bond with its trainer. However, once it evolves into a Kadabra and eventually into a Alakazam, by means of training, I suppose that could bring up some questions on loyalty. Unless of course the Alakazam was traded back to its original owner; then I suppose that problem wouldn't exist, so long as the trainer was good to it ^^;

And actually, this brings up another good question...Exactly what does trigger a trade evolution?

I'm not exactly sure what triggers a trade evo,. and I don't think they evolve from trading in the real world... I think it is a loyalty thing... like such that makes them evolve... I don't know... XD/.

Well, if a trade did indeed use a warp of particles or through space and time, it should atleast gain something from it's 'path'. (Some kind of unknown kind of EXP)

Heh... during a trade, I expect them just to switch pokeballs... lol. Not that difficult that it requires a transfer of particles O.o

Maybe the Particles get to a merge point and some particles combine or are subtracted/added from a pokemon.

I think it's sort of like making water. You take your oxygen and your hydrogen and put them together to get - a mixture of oxygen and hydrogen. However, when you add the right kind of spark to it, the bond forms and the two gases for the water we all know and drink.

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.
