This is slightly off topic, but I'm trying to figure out if I'm the nutjob or if someone else is the nutjob. I remember reading this story (or thinking/dreaming it) about a doduo whose heads could not get along, and their fights eventually turned physical, which lead to the doduo heads pecking at each other, until one head died. Actually, I one went think blind as its eyes were poked out, so one head, begrudgingly, had to rely on the other head.
Anyway! I usually rely on the pokedex entries to question if a pokemon, like a doduo, has different thoughts/personalities/etc. For doduo, one of its entries states:
"Doduo's two heads contain completely identical brains. A scientific study reported that on rare occasions, there will be examples of this Pokémon possessing different sets of brains."
And this one probed my curiosity:
"A two-headed Pokémon that was discovered as a sudden mutation. It runs at a pace of over 60 miles per hour."
And it made me think too much about pokemon. Like what kind of mutation? How did doduo continue to breed into the two-headed doduo? Blah like that.
And then it evolves and the pokedex is like, "lolokay, so a doduo's head decided to split and thus dodrio was formed" and I'm like, "omg how?" It seems to have more personality than it's pre-evolved form:
"An odd species that is rarely found. The three heads respectively represent joy, sadness, and anger."
So does that mean each head has it's own personality or it's just "represented" like symbols, but they really aren't like that?
Dugtrio is an interesting one, too:
Red pokedex: "A team of Diglett triplets. It triggers huge earthquakes by burrowing 60 miles underground."
Ruby pokedex: "Dugtrio are actually triplets that emerged from one body. As a result, each triplet thinks exactly like the other two triplets. They work cooperatively to burrow endlessly."
Emerald pokedex: "Because the triplets originally split from one body, they think exactly alike. They work cooperatively to burrow endlessly through the ground."
So I keep thinking how a dugtrio came to be. Were they, as diglett, like, "lulz, u like dig? me 2. lets join 2gether so only 1 of us has think k?" Then comes the idea of it coming into one body from three separate bodies. Magnetron (typo, but keeping it) is easier to imagine as they are, well, magnets and can just connect together like that, as the doduo's two head was answered with the vague "sudden mutation" answer. I guess dirt can be smushed together easily? D:
Yes I tired. This post will amuse me later, I bet.
