I'm sure we've all asked ourselves a lot of things during our playthroughs of the Pokemon games, things like "Why the hell does that not work?" or "How does that work?" or something like that. I'm here, and i've done alot of research, and I'm here to answer some of those questions with theories that make sense based on research and sheer common sense. Note: = Question, = answer or theory. Q: How does Skitty breed with Wailord? A: Wailord's ancestors were closer to a cat than you believe, it was only recently when the National Aquiring of the Commonly Kind (NACK) Group, discovered that Wailord evolved from the skittous-felinous, also known as Skitty, and they've always been able to breed, however back then Skitty were always the dominant ones, so Wailord over time evolved into the huge masses of blubber that they are today, but sadly the tide of dominance has never changed. Q: If Magikarp suck so bad, why aren't they extinct? A: Because not enough annoying fisherman have caught them yet. Why is it that when you have an Everstone on a female Pokemon, that it has a 50% chance of passing the nature it has onto its offspring? : Excellent question, Pokemon have incomplete DNA chains, unlike humans who can pass the traits they have to their offspring 100% of the time, Pokemon's DNA is so incomplete, that passing the traits onto their offspring is a mere 1 and 25 shot. However, an Everstone almost completes the DNA when a female Pokemon is holding it, turning that 1 and 25 chance into 1 and 2 chance. k, I understand the breeding thing, but how can a genderless Pokemon, such as Metagross, breed with a Ditto, something that is in no relation to it in any way? : Another excellent question, Ditto is the only Pokemon in the entire world with a complete DNA chain, (yes, that includes Arceus), not only that, Ditto has the complete DNA chains for EVERY SINGLE POKEMON in the entire WORLD, excluding a select few of course. Ditto, during the breeding process, acts as the female when it transforms, making the formally genderless Pokemon think it is male and effectively make an egg. : About Latios and Latias, they have genders, but yet they can't breed, why is this? : The answer is incredibely complicated but it actually makes sense. Studies from the NACK group based on a Latias the group recently captured, Latias is only 10 years old. Lacking the parts needed for reproduction. Latios on the other hand, cannot breed, because all Latios are male, if it is female, it is a Latias. If a male and a female pokemon breed, and the two pokemon are different, the offspring will be the equivalent of the female pokemon. However, studies also show, that Latios can live forever, but only one Latios and Latias exist, and they are brother and sister. : As you know, Tyranitar when it comes into play it creates a sandstorm. The sandstorm boosts Tyranitar's and other rock pokemon's special defence. Why the hell IS THIS? : And the answer to the final question is this: Rock type pokemon use the sand to mask their prescense better, so they only get hit with half of the special attack on average. That is why Pokemon, by instinct, always attack other pokemon at close range in a sandstorm. Ground pokemon can do this as well, but not to a very good extent unless their cell structure was specifically designated to do so, like Garchomp and Gliscor. Ok, that's all for now guys. If you have any other questions that you want me to answer with my crazy ass theories, or just want to comment on what you think, please do so ^_^ LatiosUnit out.
