Have you ever wondered why there are so few middle-aged characters in the Pokemon games? Usually you only meet either kids or their grandparents. Well, it looks like this crazy gamer theory can explain such an unusual phenomenon.
It appears that the world where Pokemon takes place has suffered through a great war in which most middle-aged men simply died. That is why there are so many single mothers and old people left. There isn’t much evidence proving this, but the constant battles between Pokemon and humans hint that the war is still going, but in a more subtle way.
Another fun fact is that you see kids who don’t go to schools, and basically just do whatever and go wherever they want. Further proof that they have no fathers, who may be a little bit stricter to them.
All this may sound really wild, but the theory definitely has the right to live.
