Pokémon conspiracy theories that will totally and utterly ruin your brain

Ah, Pokémon. That totally innocent game that captured your childhood and refused to let you free again, much like a Pokeball if they really existed.

Those were simpler times, weren’t they? No taxes to worry about, no rent and no dentist appointments to remember. Just you, 151 Pokémon to catch, eight gym leaders to beat and an Elite Four to topple.

But what if all wasn’t as it seems?

That’s what the guys over at the Pokémon conspiracies subreddit (yes, that’s really what it is) have set out to uncover, sharing tinfoil hat theories with the internet, collectively blowing our minds and then picking up the pieces so they can blow them all over again.

Without further ado, we present to you some of the greatest Pokémon conspiracies of all time.
