Hoping for David Kaye to return to voice Beast Megatron in Rise of the Beasts (IF he's in it, I hope), we'll see. Japan won their group at the World Cup after beating Spain and will play Croatia in the Sweet 16. But Deutschland bowing out in the group stage again, that's unbelievable.

Okay now that I've read the Violet book, I'm confused

How did they run into the Paradox Pokemon before they was transported back in time?

the end is near
Woah, can't believe this might be the last time we see all these characters. I still remember all the hype for Guardians Of The Galaxy 1 and how I went to watch It to the cinema with my uncle.

Hopefully James Gunn finishes the trilogy in a big way (which I'm sure he will, as he has given us great stuff such as The Suicide Squad over at DC).

At the least Drax will die, but hopefully everyone else (especially Rocket) manages to survive

Well...



This is most likely Paldea's third legendary. I'm sure you've noticed the absence of one in the Pokedex, the only legends being the ruinous quartet and the ride dragons.

It's implied that the crystallized scales that make up this thing's shell have the power to turn fantasies into reality. This Pokémon is probably slumbering far beneath Area Zero, and it's influence is spread out through all the Tera Crystals you find all over the place.

The current theory is that the Paradox Mons were born from the fantasies of the explorers that went down into Area Zero, dreaming about what strange creatures they may find down there. And depending on your version, they were either dinosaur nerds or sci-fi nerds.

The time machine may also be tied to this Pokémon, as it seems to be made of similar crystals. It's also said that AI Sada/Turo is built from technology far beyond what humanity is capable of, but if they came from a magical wish-granting Pokémon, that wouldn't matter now would it?

But hey, that's just a theory.

Intriguing


Yeah, I saw that thing in the Violet book. It doesn't really look... alive. Allegedly there is leftover data for it in the game though but I wonder what it actually looks like.

The idea that it basically brough the paradox Pokemon into existence is fascinating to me, it completely recontextualizes a lot of the things we know about Area Zero


Can't wait to forget about this until the DLC gets announced

Yeah, it's doubly apparent with the Violet Dex ones, since while the Scarlet ones make it seem like there's a possibility they existed in some point in time, the Violet ones straight up say they're from science fiction stories.


And then we have Paradox Suicune/Virizion which are straight up said to be made up.

I imagine it'll look more like a living thing when we actually see it.

In the 30$ expansion pass :4pacman:

THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO...

I WAS A USELESS SANTA PENGUIN

PEOPLE WOULD ONLY REMEMBER ME WHEN IT WAS TIME TO DRAW PICTURES OF THE CREATURES YOU CALL "POCKET MONSTERS" CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAYS

AND THERE WAS MUCH DEFECATION on my competitive viability

There's also Roaring Moon being pretty much directly compared to Mega Evolution whilst Iron Valiant mixes in aspects of Mega Gallade like the red blades alongside Gardevoir.

Where were Megas introduced? Kalos. What is Kalos based on? Fr*nce. Why is this relevant? Paldea is based on Spain, directly to the southwest of Fr*nce.

These two also get a special placement in the dex. They're not with the other Paradox Pokemon, they're separated from them by the Pseudo line, Gholdengo's line and then the Ruin Quartet so they immediately precede the Box Legends instead.

A lot of stuff opens up when you consider the links to Kalos in regards to Tera Crystals, Paradox stuff and Area Zero.

The best way, IMO to explain it is

The Past Paradox Pokemon are based off dubious notes and unverifiable stories ala Cryptids or Monsters from legend.

While the Future ones spell out what they are in game, characters from sci-fi stories.


Paradox Pokemon are, fictional.

Kishimoto discusses how The End's moon form is not its true form in the final battle as it is the concept of death itself.
