But why isn't the world ready for that information yet?
"Adults task young child with going up into space to fight alien Pokémon life form because they are, apparently, incapable of doing this themselves."I, too, must wonder why the world isn't ready for this information.
As far as I know, the games have never actually stated as a fact that Clefairy come from the moon. The Pokédex entries for Cleffa, Starmie, Lunatone, Solrock, and Elgyem all only go so far as to say that they are "rumored" or "believed" to come from space. Kyurem was thought by ancient locals to have fallen to Earth on a meteor, too, but Prof. Juniper later theorized that what they thought was a meteor was actually another Dragon Stone splitting off from the original dragon.I, too, must wonder why the world isn't ready for this information. After all, everybody already knows that Clefairy came from the moon, so it's not like knowledge about aliens is unheard of.
Can't say I disagree with any of that.The point still stands. It's not like people haven't been discussing Pokémon coming from outer space.
This would absolutely confirm that there are "alien" Pokémon out there, but, really, what harm would the public knowing that do?
Really, I would think that it would do wonders for the Mossodeep Space Station since, as far as we know, that's the only space program in the Pokémon World. If trainers knew that there were new Pokémon to be caught in outer space, the funding for the space program would be immense. They're cutting off a potential windfall of cash, and I don't know why.
That's definitely one of my favorite things about this series. Sometimes we get to see little aspects of the Pokemon world aren't ever touched upon, like the newsroom this time around or the SWAT operation from the second episode. It's another thing that makes the episodes based on events we see in the games a bit of a letdown since they probably wouldn't add many new details.I also loved seeing how Pokemon are used in every day life. There was a Ninjask helping someone carry some cables. a Castform helping the meteorologist, and Loudred carrying a boombox.
We're assuming that what the world isn't ready to learn is about space Pokemon but here's a few other tidbits tied to that event:I, too, must wonder why the world isn't ready for this information. After all, everybody already knows that Clefairy came from the moon, so it's not like knowledge about aliens is unheard of.
