Ok first off, I grew up with Pokemon but I grew out of it after the GBA games...so I haven't necessarily kept up with the entire thing like some die-hard fans out there who go on to do stuff like come up with perceptive ways of interpreting supposed hidden plot twists based on the official source material.

All these theories have made an enthusiast out of me and I'm just looking for a way to unite certain theories into one powerful plot twist or view from behind, if you will.

I won't go into much details since the material this is based on is lying all around the internet if you look hard enough. So here's how we're going to lay this out in the open so it can become a 'thing' (internet meme...whatever).

1) You understand or subscribe to the thinking that the Pokemon Universe is being played out on multiple timelines, which reasons out why the games have multiple versions and so on. This parallel universe/alternate timeline way of interpreting a story seems like a really substantial trend in today's industry, since it is so thought-provoking, it is usually left up to the fanbase to breed these strange new dynamic ideas.

2) Pokemon X and Y apparently hints at a world where no Pokemon existed because they were apparently wiped out due to some cataclysmic event, which is a separate timeline from where instead it hinted at them being beings that came through a doorway created by this interdimensional time machine thing humanity built, and a great war happened in which most of humanity got wiped out and Pokemon were used to repopulate Earth, somehow hinting at how humans used to be Pokemon.

3) You agree with Arceus being the Pokemon equivalent of God, and taking into account the symbolisms used to build upon that concept.

Now taking these into consideration we get back to the age-old question why Ash never ages in the anime, even though the games have long moved on from that Gen1 archetype. We can safely assume that in the timeline of the games, Ash Ketchum is long gone, which is to say he aged and died naturally. So why does the anime immortalize him as the center of the Pokemon universe?

Through much theory weaving of popular Pokemon theories posted up online, I have come up with something profound and would summarize it here as best I could. Like I said, anyone 'new' to this can go on their own little adventure doing the digging themselves to support this claim.

It is pretty simple and can put a whole new perspective on the deep dark secret behind the story of the Pokemon Universe, with all due respect to Ash Ketchum.

So let's take the whole theory about Ash being comatose or is actually dead and the Ash we see are actually clones of the original who is no more to a whole other level. I'm suprised this connection was never made, since nobody talks about what I want to say here now about that.

Basically, Ash is really the Mewtwo we see inside the glass capsule in the First Movie. I'm taking into consideration a dark version of the story where Giovanni is actually Ash's father, where he put his own son through what I call the Pokemon Master project.

In this world, the war is still on and humans have not found a foolproof way of catching and subduing these transdimensional creatures to their will as we see in the mainstream Pokemon Universe. So what this Pokemon Master project was about was in fact to create a hybrid Pokemon with respect to the original material, but here is where the why takes an unusual twist.

Upon the discovery of the Mew specimen found in Guyana, scientists attempted to incorporate this DNA into the human genome in order to give us power over the Pokemon. Alternatively, the story said they were trying to ressurect this ancient legendary Pokemon which is said to be the common ancestor of all Pokemon. Therefore the Pokemon Master is someone who can control all Pokemon at will with the power of their mind. In the anime and games it is referenced that the only ball that can hold Mewtwo is the Master Ball.

So basically, the real Ash is no longer human or let's say he is the first Pokemon/Human hybrid. This lifeform had to be put to sleep because of its Godlike potential, as hinted in the games Mewtwo and Arceus share virtually the same stats and growth.

This putting to sleep can be looked at in another way, he has been sealed inside the Master Ball to prevent an apocalyptic catasrophe, and the world we see in the anime is the world inside of the Master Ball or this Pocket Dimension.

Here the scientists have control over Ash's mind and in therapeutic way keeping him in line by injecting memories of his humanity into it. This immortal Ash Ketchum that never ages is basically a thought experiment run by the scientists to convince Mewtwo of its 'humanity' by living inside of this capsule Pokemon Universe as a trainer who wants to live the dream of being a Pokemon Master.

And with that mindblowing theory I leave thee to connect all the rest of bits and pieces to see how it all fits together perfectly like some sadistic jigsaw puzzle. Now we can all delight in letting our imaginations run wild by the implications of what I wanted to bring to the attention of Pokemon Theorists.

When in doubt just go back and watch the First Movie again and see how the symbolism all fits into place. Mewtwo wanted to kill Ash, and turned him to stone but the hearts of all the Pokemon revived him to go on to 'defeat' Mewtwo. It's all based on the age-old Light vs Darkness motif and that's why Gen 1 and 2 was meant to be the only story, that Ash and Mewtwo are one in the same and together is the 'God Consciousness' of the Pokemon Universe. I'm pretty sure Nintendo has lots of fun keeping these original ideas behind Pokemon in the dark in favor of more elaboration on the creation myths and legends of lore. Otherwise it wouldn't be as watered down and expansive as we know it today, and why we will never truly know why Ash Ketchum never ages. And why the first generation was more based in reality as opposed to subsequent versions where it went into these concepts of other worlds and timelines spiraling out from there.

I guess the hidden truth is the fuel that keeps the eternal flame of imagination burning.

I would be honored if I start seeing more of these enthusiasts considering it, since we're all doing it for the funsies :p Also this is for those 'old fans' like me, who just wanted some much needed closure in our lives to this rampant Pokemon Mania.

Journal History

The Ain Soph
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Trinidad and Tobago
A citizen of Planet Earth with an imagination that's way out of this world. I'm no professional artist but drawing's my hobby. Been drawing for over 10 yrs and currently pursuing my dream of being a pro manga creator.

Wondering why the "sama" honorific...?

Well there's nothing wrong with having a little self-esteem but that's not really the reason. At the age of 18, I was given the nickname "The Anime-Master" by my relatives and peers who knew about my passion for drawing Anime.

Well for those who don't know abt Japanese honorifics, probably won't care, but for those who do, you should be aware that -sama is the equivalent of being called "Master".

Well coming to DA has indeed humbled me...just look at some of the artists I'm friends with...these guys are amazing! ~to say the least

Some of them have been around for much longer than me and have done so much more than I have accomplished from since I signed up here.

I've got big dreams involving some big plans...
I spend every waking moment trying to materialize my ideas or refine them, apart from trying to pull though my somewhat busy life. I'm not always busy but I can be very much so at times...should be understandable for most ppl...

I've always wanted to start some kind of online activity that would involve other artists and fans of anime coming together to share stuff together. If I knew what I know now, I would have started it many years ago...but better late than never right..?

I've grown weary of being in the shadows and so I've come to make my presence known to others online.

My biggest dream is to become a pro manga artist/author but finding funds to go study abroad is proving to be more difficult for me in these times...

So as I'm looking for a way to pursue a career in Illustration, I am training myself in doing Digital Art, something I've always wanted to be good at from since I started using computers.

The internet is about the only place now, where I can show others my work, since there's no market for it where I'm from. I've been discouraged many times from doing my own manga. I have a lot of original work just lying around...but it's old and I've decided to start things over.

So as I continue to develop myself, I hope that my viewers/watchers/friends all enjoy seeing my evolution into a full-fledged Mangaka/CG Artist. And who knows? Maybe I'll even get into animation as well, with the right resources.
