    If that's the route we're going with this, we have to talk about Lapras. There is a guy who said he spent his childhood afternoons breeding and releasing Lapras back in genII because the pokedex said they were endagered. Fast forward to genVII, now it says that due to peoples efforts wild Lapras' numbers have rise to the point it is no longer in risk of extinction

    I’d love to see you do a Stardew valley episode. There’s a lot of theories and stuff online. I started playing a few months ago and there’s definitely deeper lore and mysteries under the surface level of the game.
    Also I’ve been watching for like ten years and you guys are the best:) thank you for all you do

Where we didnt even know ( as flux ) what was hewgo top secret plan that even all 3 alien types aka tendraam from savana , 2 is like a bug alien in bawg the n 3rd is polaris which they have much more didnt know what is the top secret of hewgodookoo not just using the juicebox 3 box babies not just to open a portal and revive its own relative ( hewgo i mean ) . It is not mean to destroy the woanope but something that hewgo wants another .

    I viewed Voltorb’s change was due to industrialization. Going from a moral rural environment to cities. Drawn to cities due to the transition from steam power to electric power. Thus their themeing evolved from wood to metal.

    Alternatively, without the player’s intervention, humans may have simply tried to exterminate all Pokémon entirely out of fear. Arceus could have been trying to avert the worst case scenario.

    I think this is a really smart tactic to introduce new pokemon and explain why they're not there in the future, give them all reasons to go extinct. Very interesting!

  • Numbug
    Numbug Před 3 měsíci +6044

    Honestly, given that Voltorb and Electrode are deliberately meant to resemble Pokeballs to serve as traps, I think it's likely that they transitioned from an apricot design to a more metallic design in order to continue tricking trainers who had largely switched to using more modern Pokeballs (presumably since the Apricorn Pokeballs were gathered unsustainably)

    • Infinight Moon
      Infinight Moon Před 3 měsíci

      @EnderCon04 It's not literally metal or wood. From Pokemon Crystal: "During the study of this Pokémon, it was discovered that its components are not found in nature."
      Voltorb is made out of an entirely new material.

    Perhaps Arceus had another motive. They saw that without the player's intervention, Volo, the "Pokemon Wielder" would have torn the world apart by driving Dialga/ Palkia mad. Volo himself posits that the player was sent to Hisui to prevent him from realizing his plans

  • ExplosiveT-5
    ExplosiveT-5 Před 3 měsíci +40

    For Voltorb and Electrode, doesn't it make more sense that the Apricorns were overharvested so humans started making pokeballs out of different materials and the Voltorbs and Electrodes just evolved (Not Pokemon Evolve) to resemble the more modern pokeballs?

    • シエルsh.
      シエルsh. Před 2 měsíci +1

      I don't think so. Since Apricorns were the primary object used to start the production of Pokeballs it is reasonable that humans wanted to find a similar material that could possibly fill the absence of Apricorns once it was overharvested. And since Voltorbs and Electrodes were a living resemblance of the wood once used to make Pokeballs, they probably thought it was the material with most similarities and just decided to use it as a replacement.

  • Mutton Chop Gamer

    To be fair, the Pokémon that went extinct had it coming. They were involved in banishing Zorua and Zoroark to the cold, condemning them to become ghost types. Arceus, furious at their sins, brought a human to bring them to extinction, allowing the Zorua and Zoroark that died to rest in peace.

    If anyone is curious, Basculegion and Hisui Zorua line are excluded as it was humans hunting them that allowed them to exist. When humans stopped doing such, basculin stopped evolving and Zorua/Zoroark lost their hatred of humans.

      Hisuian Voltorb wasn't overhunted. It literally just found a better, more sleek and modern design. To fool trainers of the modern era.

    • Varian Moonstone
      Varian Moonstone Před 3 měsíci

      Honestly even if he didn't you just need to look more into the games to see that they are genuinely a horror scenario XD
      For example my favorite (and first) Pokémon game is Black and White.
      In the first game you find this abandoned house but only thanks to the second game you are able to get the whole story.
      This girl and her family always lived happily until one day the girl ended up in a coma/long sleep full of nightmares caused by a Pokémon.
      They tried using various psychic Pokémon types that handled dreams however all of them failed.
      Eventually they discovered that the girl was put in a long sleep by Darkrai himself (we understand that if we play Pokémon diamond where there's a city in which almost everyone talk about Darkrai causing nightmares and long sleep which always result in death) and was slowly dying, his father wanted to save her but she just wanted him to stay with her because she was about to die and she just wanted her dad with him.
      He left to take a plume of Cresselia which was the only way to make Darkrai disappear but he came back too late.
      She begged for him to stay because that was all she wanted but he couldn't hear her in the nightmare she was in, she could hear them but not see or talk.
      When the father came back she was dead already, consumed by Darkrai nightmares.
      In short, if you look into it or remove the cheerful appearance of the game you can actually see how messed up Pokémon actually is XD

  • ・your non favorite person 👍・

    Personally, my expectation is that Arceus's plan was twofold: To send you from the future into the past to encourage humans and Pokemon to become symbiotic, but also sent you BACK to the future with the knowledge of how these Hisuian forms became extinct with the expectation that modern civilization would be able to bring them back.
    Peat may be gone from Sinnoh, but it can still be imported or possibly substituted with a synthetic. And today the region relies much more on renewables so its value as a possible fuel source is very much diminished.
    The same goes for apricorns: Gone from Sinnoh, still available in Johto, etc.
    Stantler may have lost its natural ability to learn the move, but a TM could be developed to teach it to captive Stantler.
    And so on and so forth.

    Well, to be fair, the player doesn't exactly have a choice, Mat... they're given an ultimatum by the leaders of the Galaxy expedition - either help them collect pokemon and be given a home and food, or left to die in the wilderness. Cyrus' ancestor says so herself. The fact that they're from the future and have knowledge that they don't is just an advantage. XD

      However, they ask if you know what a Pokemon is and are given the choice to say no. So we don't actually know for fact whether the player even came from a reality that HAD Pokemon to begin with.

    • Archonagon
      Archonagon Před 3 měsíci +7

      @thunderborn 32 This would most likely be a write-off line though, because if someone from the future goes back to the past with any knowledge of the future (or history) they would invariably end up changing it, intentionally or otherwise. Even by TRYING to mimic history to keep things evolving as they did before, you will end up not being mindful or knowledgeable about some minor but very important detail that makes the entire difference. Hence the idea behind the butterfly effect, and by removing your "memory" at the beginning of the game, Arceus ensures that you cannot change history in such a manner. Even observing phenomena occur, can change it. Especially if what you are observing is aware of you, or that it is being observed.

    You need to do a theory on "the witness" it's an interesting puzzle game with skatered lore told throught the environmental storytelling, exploring the open world in this almost post apocoliptic setting, solving secret puzzle that reveal new areas and hidden videos and voice recordings. It's aminous, it's beautiful and is begging for a game theory

    I actually have a funny story about Pokemon. One day in 2nd grade, my art class had a substitute. She put on a Snorlax drawing tutorial, and when it was over, I remember her words exactly. She said, “Ok class, when you get home, ask your parents if this is Pokeyman. They might of watched the show growing up.”, and I still laugh about it to this day.

      Actually, it's that the bigger tusked elephants get poached, so the smaller tuskless elephants increase in numbers.
      One could consider poaching as a form of "natural selection", though on the account of humans being dicks.

    Some of the pokemon are just new evolutions and something I considered is that somehow the evolution information got lost on them. So we take for granted that they can't evolve further because they have no information on how. Evolution is a thought I had because the Alola region had all the information we needed to receive all our missing eevees but we didn't.

      They live in a timeline where you can literally turn mass into energy and back again (storing pokemon in pokeballs, to include god-tier pokemon). I'm guessing they can find ways to re-develop pretty much any compound or material at will. So long as you're going down this road, it would be incredibly easy for humanity of the pokemon world to "re-discover" extinct pokemon forms that require said materials to evolve. Where the fun stops is things like the secondary forms of pokemon like wooden Voltorbs and Electrodes. Short of samples from the past combined with morally questionable breeding practices, you're not gonna see those again in the wild.

    Excluding the possibility of humans going extinct, the growth of civilization and influence is inevitable. A human society that reaches the threshold to challenge pokemon while also still fearing them is one that is more likely to exterminate first and make peace later. It's understandable too, we all just want to survive. Yes, some species were lost in the early days before humans were secure enough in their own needs to worry about the needs of other species. But consider how many more species of pokemon survived because of early symbiotic bonds, and all the subspecies that came about once humans cared for their fellow sentient creatures.

    With the voltorbs in a previous video it was mentioned that they may be disguising themselves as pokeballs to hunt humans or something similar and they may have evolved to look like current pokeballs to continue this.

    Mat, while I love your videos, as a former biology graduate I gotta say something: it is wrong to say, at least when comparing to real life, that the animals/pokemons "evolved to have/do something", that kind of statement implies a will or desire behind evolution, which is a lamarckist view at best and creationist view at worst, neither being ok. For instant with the elephants, you could have said "individuals with smaller or no tusks were able to survive the new evolutionary pressure and pass their traits, and the species as a whole is becoming tuskless."

    I don’t know, I personally think that the voltorbs and electodes evolved not from being hunted, but for camouflage. As the trees were harvested, they began to lose more and more places to hide, they evolved to look more like the thing the trees were used for, the pokeballs. To me, it really wouldn’t make much sense for them to evolve with pokeballs if they were being hunted because they looked the same. That is why it would make more sense for them to evolve with the pokeballs so that they could camouflage with them (which we have seen them do in the anime)

    Sadly this is one of those that seems yo just be explained by "the game just came out later" as Hisuian Zoroark was confirmed in Scarlet and Violet. The others may come back too at some point so... its a bit early to claim abaolute extintion.

    I think the one issue you have is with Hisuian Forms. Because they didn’t “die” out, they evolved into the new current forms today. Like liligant’s are still alive, just no longer fighting type.

      most of these regional formes were brought about because of hisui's harsh environment. it says so in multiple dex entries. chances are most of these pokemon either migrated away and adapted to new regions or they just lost their power becausd there was no need for it anymore

  • Axecon
    Axecon Před 3 měsíci +273

    Minor complaint here - Rowlett (and by extension its evolved forms) are native to Alola so Hisuian Decidueye is probably an example of speciation rather than extinction. It likely evolved into its grass/fighting form as a result of the environmental pressures of Hisui and is the first instance of its kind. You could probably say the same for Hisuian Samurott and various of the other regional forms discussed in this game, although the extinction argument does apply to the majority of species in this video. Typhlosion is a weird case, and it's possible Hisui was the the original form of the Pokemon because ties to Spiritomb before it naturally migrated to the connecting Johto region where it multiplied and became the dominant form (Bird Keeper Toby has a great theory on this).

    • Tokuijin
      Tokuijin Před 3 měsíci

      ​@omnizoom, there's an endangered species of ground ground dwelling owl indigenous to Hawaii called the "pueo owl" but rowlet and its evolved forms are most likely based on _tyto alba_ , which ISN'T native to Hawaii.
      Worth noting is that rowlet is arboreal. If the Pokémon was based on pueo owl, it'd be more terrestrial.

      Actually, their presence in this game and region could imply that they were initially native to Hisui but got introduced to Alola (there are a lot of Pokemon that AREN'T native to Alola) or Rowlet (and its evolved forms) used to exist in Hisui but were rendered extinct. Worth noting is that Rowlet and its evolved forms, looks-wise, are based off of the barn owl, which is the MOST widespread owl species there is.

    Makes enough sense for the most part, but you're definitely conflating theory with fact. Gen 9 will probably give us more insight into the survival status of the Pokemon, and if they really were driven to extinction. It could be as solid as you say, with the implications being a purposeful message of environmentalism. Or it could be simpler and flimsier, that these are simply new designs they didn't come up with before, and just weren't around because they weren't invented yet. In either case, more lore will hopefully provide some answers on the intention.

  • KREa

    Consider this too for the voltorbs: in an effort to keep the last members of the species alive, HUMANS modified them to be metal in some way - we've done things like chopping off horns to protect species before, so I can totally see a group doing that to keep them alive - and it clearly worked.

      I have to say tho, that getting your hands on enough apricorns to get the trees to vanish from the region is almost impossible unless every person catches thousands of Pokémon. Not to mention that there are fields at wgich apricorns can be planted. Overall the whole theory is pretty farfetched in the first place and doesn't make much sense when it comes to certain points.

      And we don't know if they're smarter than animals in real life, because we don't get to put them under the tests that we get to do in real life.
      Also, again, it doesn't matter the battle is consensual with the pokemon. It is still animals being told to fight one another, which is what animal fighting is about.

    A decent few of the pokemon still have a chance of coming back, like missing items or forgotten moves, so imagine if gen 10 would get the player to slowly help the extinct pokmon to go back, such as finding enough scrap or a full piece of ore to help scyther evolve. Of course some of them are fine with where they are like voltorb but I think it would be a neat idea nonetheless!

    I think Ursaluna might just have been a trait that wasn’t useful enough for Ursaring to keep. Honestly, the Pearl Clan wardens might have been the only ones who could be bothered to evolve an Ursaring. Ursaring are already apex predators, so why would they bother to find a peat block and keep it until a full moon? Assuming they’re even smart enough to understand their own evolution requirements, not only would they be wasting energy to search for the item instead of say, searching for food, they would also be losing all the benefits of being bipedal for a power boost they didn’t need in the first place.

    • Danny Jaycox
      Danny Jaycox Před 3 měsíci +7

      plus the added ground typing they get upon evolution might actually be a disadvantage since it’s not like they lose their normal typing either. What do they get with a ground typing? A slightly stronger high horsepower that Ursaring could learn regardless, taking less damage from rock type attacks and an immunity to electric? All for a weakness to water, grass and ice while still retaining their fighting weakness? When you’ve got that many weaknesses to that many things it sounds like evolving into Ursaluna is actually a disadvantage.

      @Hangs TheMighty
      1, the pokemon in the mystery dungeon world are not the same as the ones in the world of the main line games. If they were as intelligent as the ones that have a full society, they wouldn’t be taking orders from humans or living like animals in the wild.
      2, I didn’t say they weren’t capable of it if they wanted to, I said that, in the wild, there’s no real reason they *would* want to, again, as evidenced by the fact that you don’t encounter any Ursaluna in the wild while Ursaring are plentiful.
      3, while yes, pokemon do have individual personalities, ones like Team Rocket’s Meowth or Sir Aaron’s Lucario that posses human level intelligence are very few and very far between
      And 4, Palina, a fellow Pearl Clan warden, tells the player that the clan at large is critical of her because she *wasn’t* forcing the Growlithe descended from the hero’s Arcanine to train harder, evolve, and become the Lord Pokemon, so there’s no reason to assume they wouldn’t be the same way about making sure the descendant of the hero’s Ursaluna also became an Ursaluna.

      There are several Pokémon who need an object to evolve and if you have played any of the Pokémon Dungeon games, you can see how smart and able Pokémon are and the things that they use on themselves in order to even survive. (Like they have their own special items for health, culture, currency and carry such things as revival seeds)
      So I would say if an Ursaring wanted to evolve to Ursaluna, they could do so if they desired to do that, like a Pokémon can also decide not to evolve at all (I mean Pokémon on the wild btw.).
      If you want Pokémon to do battle they would have to be smart enough to know what you are telling them. Shoot I wouldn't go this route but on the anime Team Rocket's Meowth has a whole personality. And any Movie that focuses on the Pokémon only also shows the complicated lives they lead and how capable they are.
      And I highly doubt the Clans were evolving the Pokémon, seeing how both were very against taking the will away from Pokémon, they let Pokémon choose if they wanted to be a companion or not. And we're even offended by the player at first.

    Studies show that in the last 40 years, humans have been responsible for the extinction of 60% of species. Compare that to the 10% of lost Pokémon from over 140 years. I'd say Arceus made the right call. And who knows, Wydeer and the other evos could come back in another region. Admittedly there is no hope for the species wide ones (Growlithe, Voltorb, etc.)

      @Jyoster 64 ah yeah. If we (the player) hadn't come along then Volo would have gone unopposed.

      It's not just Kamado's potential actions that put the region at risk. Sure, his irrational thinking fueled by fear would've to lead to a large population of Pokemon going extinct.
      But there's also the case of Volo, who threatened to wipe out the entire universe had he not been stopped.

    Another theory for some pokemon like Wyrdeer, since the way we battle changed the secret to their evolution was lost since we don't use strong and agile styles anymore. This could also work in tandem to the game theory.

    MatPat, you should do a Book Theory channel. I feel like you could get a lot of lore out of most books. 😀
