The theming is fucking perfect

generation 1 and 2
The strongest and rarest pokemon either have a very strong connection to science (mew is the ancestor of all pokemon, mewtwo is a clone of mew) or straight up come from legends (ho-oh, lugia and celebi coming straight from asian mythology).
The duality in these first games is supposed to represent modern japan's high technological advance living together with ancient traditions, which is also seen in the games
Everything is tied together by having magical creatures that "Evolve".

The theming is fucking perfect.

later generations
Let's just put literal fucking gods that basically have limitless power in the game.
Yeah fuck it, Arceus is the god that created all pokemon, it doesn't matter that it doesn't make any sense and breaks previously established (good) lore and replaces it with trash.

Is there a more obvious example of a company completely forgetting why a series was good?
Like seriously what the fuck is Pokemon even about now, it's all over the fucking place

the "evolution" shown in pokemon is strictly metamorphosis because pokemon consistently "evolve" in the same way (i.e. a charmander can never "evolve" into anything other charmeleon and then a charizard in that order obviously under this definition gender-based, catalyst-based, and other-based "evolution" stages are still "consistent")

It's started off as a GameBoy game based on the very Japanese hobbies of bug catching and collecting miniature items in capsules aimed at children. They could as easily have used the word 'morph'. The notion that the term 'evolve' is part of some well thought out theme from the beginning only exists in your head.

very shallow
how so?
There are 20+ status effects, dozens of useful held items, and over 800 possible party members all with different stats, typings (18 total) and abilities (200+). Pokémon can be in different forms as well. If you count forms as differnt Pokémon you come close to 1000 Pokémon. Pokémon's stats have 3 major determinants (BASE, IVs, and EVs), meaning that breeding and battling can affect your monsters' skills in battle, and who they battle affects how they develop. Pokémon have 6 different stats and also have some that are normally the same for all Pokémon like evasion but can be manipulated by stat boosting moves, abilities, and items.
There are multiple battle modes, with 2v2 and 1v1 being the most common.
I don't see how you can say Pokémon of all games is shallow when the battle system is one of the most complex among JRPGs.

Eh, I don't care. I'm just pointing out that 進化 indeed means evolution. You're right, though, the Pokemon don't evolve in some Darwinian sense. They transform from a simpler form into a more complex one. However, this doesn't mean that Darwinian evolution can't exist in the Pokemon universe, it just means that we, as outside observers, have not been given an explanation for how this might affect Pokemon.

I doubt the creators want to go through the trouble of creating some complex explanation of Pokemon evolution, though.

Also
if the way it's written literally means darwinian evolution then that's what it means
Here, you don't seem to understand the concept of "misnomers". Here's a little example to help you figure it out:
My friend is a little naive and deciding what he wants to major-in in college. He says to me "I really want to help people with mental illness, so I'll study psychology"
The problem here is he is actually using the incorrect term, Psychiatry is actually the field he means to major in. Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior; Psychiatry is the diagnosis and prevention of mental disorders.
It's the same problem in our discussion. The developers of pokemon made a mistake and called the process of metamorphosis (which is clearly what "evolution" is in pokemon) "evolution".

The series has been drifting that way for a while honestly
gen 1
3 birds and mew are the closest things to "gods" and really the 3 birds are more like mythical giants/dragons than anything
no real plot involving them

gen 2
3 dogs with connection to ancient johto history
there is a small plot (built up by cutscenes) in crystal where you encounter suicune, the first time a game railroads you into a legendary (though I don't think it locks off progress fully, correct me if I am wrong)

gen 3
kyogre, groudon, and rayquaza
kyogre and groudon are a part of the linear, developed plot, which casts them as gods that can fuck the world up. You must encounter them to progress to the last gym.
first time the bad guy team is involved with god pokemon instead of just being organized criminals

gen 4
more god pokemon, even more pokelore than gen 3
the gods are arguably bigger (space and time>earth and sea)

(this is where I stopped buying pokemon games)
gen5
bigger, more linear plot, gods aren't necessarily godlier but they are still gods

gen 6
more gods, more plot, a 9 foot tall hobo brings a flower back to life with necromancy

gen 7
a god saves you at the beginning of the game so that you can rescue cosmog, which may or may not be a god depending on your interpretation
at least you fight space aliens

Like seriously what the fuck is Pokemon even about now, it's all over the fucking place
The god of the week. My point is that gens 2-3 built up to this "muh gods" bullshit that ran off the rails in gen 4. It wasn't a sudden snap: it was a gradual process. I'm pretty sure there are more legendaries per generation with each new release too, since they can release new mons after a game is sold in stores. I guess that constant hype train is what helps move copies.

put nerf foam padding on everything
railroad players through an extremely specific route, providing zero exploration or reason to go anywhere but the place you're supposed to go next
give the ability to simultaneously train all pokemon with EXP share, removing any strategy from training so you never have to mix it up
have a talking pokedex explain everything to you with skyrim style map waypoints despite the fact it's impossible, by design, to get lost
finally do ONE THING people actually wanted, replacing HM moves with pokemon that can just do the thing
but it's not YOUR pokemon, and you have to strap into a harness with a riding suit and helmet

I felt insulted playing the latest shit-shows, and further insulted that they thought they could sell the same game again as "Ultra" with just some fucking DLC tacked onto the end. I really hung in there and put up with a lot of bullshit but I won't be giving the Switch pokemon a chance.

In ancient times
Humans and pokemon would be married and were seen as equals
In ancient times
Necrozma shared it's light with Ultra Megopolins
it protected them from everything inside the ultra wormholes
Ultra Megopolins lacked sympathy and tried to control Necrozma for themselves
Necrozma could have fucked them 6 ways from creation but instead fled through a wormhole
ended up on Poke-earth in Ancient times
"something" happened and it lost all of it's light and was incapacitated for eons
suddenly, pokemon and humans become vastly different
Ulra Moon dexcription: "The light pouring out from all over its body affects living things and nature, impacting them in various ways."
this light took the shape of Z crystals, but what else?
Evolution stones give off light that affects living things and nature
Pokemon evolution sequences give off light and affect their nature and life
Mega Evolution takes the form of crystals and light and Necrozma's "ultra burst" to regain it's true form looks the same as a mega evolution

If all other creatures gained the ability to evolve, what did humans gain?
most likely empathy and the ability to channel their strength into their pokemon partners, forming bonds
Using Necrozma's Z move showcases you giving up your very stamina from your body

Ultra Beasts are common life forms from alternate dimensions that are horrifically powerful
Necrozma is supposed to be an ultrabeast but functions as a pokemon
Evidently, extended time in the pokemon world makes an Ultra Beast become a pokemon
This would explain how the "Legendary pokemon" are so much more powerful (all are found inside of ultra wormholes) and why they started ravaging our world in Ancient times; Necrozma wasn't there to slap their shit and tell them to fuck off back home
Some were benevolent (Arceus, Rayquaza), others were self absorbed (Groudon, Kyogre, most Version exclusive legends), while others still just didn't give a fuck

This would explain basically everything about the pokemon LORE's backstory.

durr the lore doesn't matter
it's a kids game
You are the type of niggers that have absolutely no idea how important lore is even in games that seem like they have none.

Lore that makes sense and is interesting is what ties a whole game together. It makes playing in its world more fun, it can make or break a game, such is the case for pokemon.
Pokemon games would not be as important as they ended up being without the fantasy/technology mix they established in the first games. And that's thanks to the lore.

it means the idea that the creator of a piece defines what the piece is is retarded. They may say what it represents, i.e. what they had in mind when they made it, but they can't simply call a jizzing penis the mona lisa

Death of the Author is a joke. How can you stand there and say you know everything that goes into art without accounting for the creator's background and circumstances? It is nonsensical solipsism, as most post-modernist constructs resolve to in the end

Luis Thomas

Canonically. when zapdos is stricken by lightning he gains more power. Him living in a secluded, abandoned power plant makes perfect sense.

Celebi gives a shit about the GS ball because, canonically, it is the only thing that can catch him. Him being a protector of the forest, which is typical jap lore, means that someone trying to take him away from the place he's trying to protect will eventually kill the forest.

You absolute fucking neanderthal.

I just want a pokeymang game where you can play as a character of legal fucking age.

You start pokemon journey at age 10
Do the standard tutorial mission and get your starter
Go back home to get running shoes
Mom says you're moving to a new region for work
8 years pass, you haven't done any training
You can finally start out on your journey
Go around beating up little kids and their shitty pokemon
Eventually visit your home region
Your childhood friends are Gym leaders now
Can work jobs for more pokedollars
Can rent an apartment

Basically it's Shenmue with pokemongs

Pretty sure Mew didn't actually birth Mewtwo out its pokevagina, since Mewtwo was made in a lab.

literally the gameplay
no matter how much they fuck up the story mode, the battling system is literally good enough to always bring people back. I assume this whole transfering system, where you can take your pokemon from gamecube/game boy advance all the way to newer games also keeps them addicted

It's stated in no uncertain terms that Mew gave birth to Mewtwo. Some dex descriptions mention "horrific gene splicing experiments". The indication is that Mew was captured and the experimentation on Mew was rather horrible and in the process, she gave birth. Said offspring looked different than her and was violent and more powerful. It's possible that, unlike pokemon we know of who evolve in the same life, mew will give birth to mewtwo and mewtwo will give birth to mew in a sort of every-other-generation flip-flop. The scientists just THOUGHT that they "made" mewtwo when all they did was stress mew to the point she gave birth, possibly slightly prematurely.
