Ever notice that Brawl’s Pikachu has the goggles from Melee’s Pichu? Â And now you know the rest of the story.
How exactly do Pokemon names work? Â When they evolve, do they lose their old identity and have to struggle to accept their new one? Â Think about it–you’ve said only one word repeatedly your entire life, and now you have to adjust to saying something new, like “Meganium” or whatever. Â And how does it work when they get married? Â ”Hi, I used to be Seel, but now I’m Seel Psyduck, and in a week, I’ll be Seel Golduck.” Â How can a seal breed with a duck anyway!? Â The whole Pokemon universe is messed up, man.
