Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is Genesect a Kabutops that Team Plasma modified?

1 vote

It sort of looks like it because of its shape and style.

Also Kabutop's pokedex entry said it was a hunter in ancient times and Genesect's entry is 'Over 300 million years ago, it was feared as the strongest of hunters. It has been modified by Team Plasma.'

Best answer

Genesect was revived from a Fossil and technologically enhanced by Team Plasma to create the most powerful Pokémon ever. N had the project cancelled and the P2 Laboratory closed because he felt that Pokémon, who he thought to be perfect beings, would lose their beauty if modified by science. However, Scientist Dudley kept working on it, angry that N denied his talent. This scientist reconstructed Genesect and installed the cannon on its back.

Stated there Genesect is originally a fossil Pokemon enhanced by science. No official word of what Pokemon it is but most(including I) believe it is Kabutops

Indeed, the pokedex entries was what got me most curious.
I noticed the same thing; Genesect's' Pokedex entries scream, 'I am a modified Kabutops!".
You would have thought that they would use a more powerful pokemon to modify. There's loads of them out there.
