Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is this Theory True?

0 votes

The other day, my friend was telling me a theory about the Pokemon creation he read on the internet. It goes something like this.
Arceus was born from an egg in darkness. Than, he made Palkia, Dialga, Giratina, and Mew. Space started to expand and time started to... start. Arceus made the planet. He than made humans, the lake trio, and went into a great slumber. Mew created all the Pokemon on the planet. It made Jirachi to assist Palkia and made Celebi to assist Dialga. It made Groudon and Kyogre to rule the land and the sea and Rayquazza to rule the air. The Regis were created to help Groudon. Heatran was also made to assist Groudon. Manaphy and Phione were made to help Kyogre. Darkrai and Cresselia were made to control the moon. The legendary birds were made to control the seasons. When they fought in fall, Lugia was made to control them. Ho-oh was made to control the sun. When a Flareon, Jolteon, and Glaceon died in a burning building, Ho-oh resurrected them into much stronger being and thus the legendary beasts were made.
His theory was something like this. Is this theory true or at least some what accurate?

I think he might be referring to this chart which links all legendaries to each other.

Some points:

  • Arceus did make the time trio (Dialga, Palkia & Giratina), and also the lake trio (Mesprit, Uxie & Azelf).
  • In some legends, Arceus only created Sinnoh and Ransei; in other legends, Arceus created the Pokemon universe.
  • As for Arceus creating other Pokemon apart from 2 trios mentioned, it's not confirmed or talked about.
  • Mew is the ancestor of all Pokemon; it's never been said or confirmed that Mew created anything consciously, but instead was the original Pokemon that gave birth to all other Pokemon, as seen by the fact that it contains the DNA of all Pokemon in its body.
  • Regigigas is separate from the weather trio; the 3 Regis were introduced in Gen III, but Regigigas was introduced in Gen IV. The 3 Regis also act as keys to Regigigas' seal, as it was sealed away by people who though it was too powerful. Regigigas has nothing to do with Groudon.
  • Heatran also has nothing to do with Groudon nor Manaphy with Kyogre in official Pokemon "folklore" (idk what else you call it).
  • Again, it's never mentioned that Darkrai and Cresselia were specifically created by Arceus.
  • Lugia is the only Pokemon that can stop the birds trio if they are disturbed (not because of a specific season) and begin to fight.
  • The theory of Suicune, Entei and Raikou being Vaporeon (not Glaceon considering that it wasn't even introduced until Gen IV), Flareon and Jolteon is a very common and popular theory, but not confirmed. The "evidence" is that the dogs trio's hidden abilities are the same as the original 3 Eeveelutions' normal abilities.

That's probably where he got the info from. Thanks for your answer!
I hope they introduce the pokemon of which Zekrom, Reshiram and Kyurem came from!
Yeah, same here.
