7 Crazy Pokemon Origin Theories That’ll Blow Your Mind

The biggest theory is one that turns the whole thing into a bit of an eco cautionary tale. Noticing that in the Kanto region (where Red, Blue and Yellow, the games this article will focus on, take place) there’s few characters that aren’t very young, very old or criminals, people crafted the idea of some form of war, which tied into various throwaway lines throughout those games. In recent years this has expanded to be full on chemical warfare that led to the creation of the Poison type. And that could act as an in-world explanation for some crazy theories that link otherwise entirely distinct Pokémon, some of which from the first Generation of games we’ll highlight in this list.

Aerodactyl Are Prehistoric Zubats

Zubat, the pesky bat that will always pop up as you try to work your way through a cave, is an evolution of Aerodactyl, the fossil Pokémon you can get by taking Old Amber all the way from Pewter City to Cinnabar Island. And when we say evolution we don’t mean in the normal Pokémon sense; we mean the process taught in schools that takes place of millions of years.

This stems from the fact that, on a basic level they share many aspects. Aerodactyl’s colour scheme is a toned down version of Zubat’s, they both have pointy ears and their wings have the same basic structure; Zubat’s point where Aerodactyl’s claws would be.

This theory’s given an added sheen of legitimacy when you consider how this would occur in the real world. Animals that exist from the cretaceous period or before tend to be those that live in the sea or deep underground, where major geographical changes have less of an effect. And as Zubats come from dark caves, where it’s likely the Aerodactyl would have slowly become a beast that uses sound over sight (losing eyes and growing ears), the theory really gains weight.

Gengar Is A Dead Clefable

Amongst all the animal based creatures in the world, Ghost Pokémon stand out as one of the weirder elements of the universe. Just where do they come from; is there a non-ghost version of Gastly, Haunter and Gengar? Well yes, it transpires.

Fairies are another strange element of the world and could in fact be the bridge between the world of Kanto and the other side. You see, Gengar is actually the ghost of Clefable. On a simple physical level they share a lot (pointy ears, stubby limbs, three fingers, tail, wings/spikes on their back), but there’s more to it than that; both characters tend to be seen on a full moon. While that’s a pretty ghostly thing anyway, could Gengar do it to honour their previous life.

You can extend this to suggest that Haunter is Clefable and Generation II’s Cleffa is Gastly; although there’s less cosmetic similarities, it’s not a huge leap.

Another, similar theory is that Gastly is a dead Cloyster without its shell. While they do indeed look alike, there’s not enough in-world logic to back it up as the Gengar-Clefable link.
