I like the idea that some pokemon are introduced in games where they’re not in their ‘home’ region.
Like, for example, Yanma. Introduced in Johto. Everyone thinks of it as a Johto pokemon. But it was incredibly rare and usually only found when it started swarming.
But in Pastoria’s Great Marsh, it’s fairly common. So maybe Yanma are native to Sinnoh, and they only very rarely show up anywhere else, and really they’re Sinnoh pokemon despite us thinking of them as Johto pokemon.
Or like, Eevee. Which has to be found as a one-off gift in basically every region… except Kalos, where they’re found freely in the wild. So Eevees come from Kalos, and back in Red/Blue you found a rare imported one.
GIOVANNI YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THIS IS BULLSHIT LIKE HALF OF TEAM ROCKET’S POKEMON ARE MADE UP OF GODDAMN ZUBATS
But they are zubats from around the world.
This is definitely my two favorite tweets about the snowstorm in japan
Zoey’s drawings from "Who’s That Pokemon?"
“From the time it is born, a flame burns at the tip of its tail. Its life would end if the flame were to go out.”
what if the litwick tried to revive the charmander by reigniting its tail but the charmander ended up as a ghost/fire type with struggle as its only move
Why you gotta make me sad?
