That actually makes a lot of sense.
It looks like they're going to take a more Cynthia-ish route and have us visit some ruins/ancient paintings with him and learn about the legends before the actual crisis, so we can get an idea of the Primal Reversion in advance.
That can be possible. They never explained why he was in Granite Cave in the first place (yes, to find rocks, but the location was too specific imo).I wonder if that painting is in the Granite Cave, where you first meet Steven?
Well, that would be believable for intense sunlight, but rain? Then again, I have not experienced really strong rain.
Maybe Acid Rain? I always thought that should be introduced as another weather condition anyway.Well I was thinking more thunderstorms for rain because Thunder and Drizzle/Rain Dance have ties anyway.
I've always wanted a Primal Dialga, Sinnoh Confirmed? If they do make that a thing in the main games, I'll be so freakin' happy!Wait a minute! Mega Aerodactyl is said to have been hypothesized by scientists to be Aerodactyl's original form! Could Mega Aerodactyl relate to Ancient Devolution?
Heck, perhaps all the Mega Evolutions are! This is a wild theory, but what about, when the Ultimate Weapon was fired, it killed many things, took their energy... What if the Ultimate Machine sapped power from Pokemon of that period, and then stored it as Mega Stones!? Then, Ancient Devolution is a more primal equivalent of Mega Evolution, as Kyogre, Groudon, most other legends and Aerodactyl went extinct/into rest before this! We've seen that Pokemon can mutate and weaken, like Magikarp! Funnily enough, Gyarados has a Mega Evolution!
It seems that just as Mega Evolutions have 'Mega ________' as their name, Ancient Devolutions have 'Primal ________'.
Does a legend with Primal in front of it sound familiar? Reverting to something? Yes, it does! Primal Dialga! Primal Dialga reverted to a thoughtless, speechless beast who fought only to survive.
Primal Dialga, similar to Primal/Primevil/Ancient Kyogre and Groudon, has glowing outlines, and eyes changed color. Could we see a slightly redesigned Primal Dialga as an Ancient Devolution? Was it perhaps a inspiration? And could Giratina-O draw into this? Find out next wee-
Oh wait, wrong media.
