    The church sheds a little light on what the people of Sinnoh believe in and their views on how their history came about.

    Plus for once, Pokemon actually dives into religion.

    Those things on Arceus are there to make it more "godly", and nothing more.

    The picture in the back is of Mt. Coronet, no? Since that seems to be Dialga&Palkia's hang out, I'm guessing that was the Mountain that eventually formed into Sinnoh. There's no real plot behind the "church".

    Heatran is just there. Like Wisconsin. Deal with it.

    Basically, this means "List all the plot-holes in Pokemon!"
    I could name hundreds about the anime, but this isn't in anime discussion.


    Your Arceus question... Well, why does ANY pokemon have anything on them.
    Why do Rotom have Blue Eyes?
    Because they do.
    Why does Kyogre have those giant Hand shapped fins?
    Because it does.
    Why do Charizard have wings?
    Because they do.
    Why do Banette have Tails?
    Because they do.
    Why does Arceus have those Rings?
    Because it does.

    The church... I think it's to confirm that there is a Religion of some sort or form in Pokemon. It doesn't say if it's a catholic church or whatever. It doesn't say that it's a church for any relgion that actually exists for earth, or a made up religion (Pokemonism?) for the games. But with the addition of all the Sinnoh Legends and how the world was created, the need some sort of church to maybe honor the Pokemon that are considered Deities, as to make the world more realistic.

    What's wrong with Heatran? Why does Garchomp exist? Because it does. This is why I hate how all the new legends are Deities. Everyone expects all the new legendary Pokemon to have a back story.
    I don't believe the Legendary Birds have back stories. They are just rare and powerful Pokemon, rare and strong enough to be considered legends. Neither do Latios and Latias.
    Heatran is fine as it is.

    The GS Ba-

    Um, the ruins in Celestic Town. Unless I forgot something, what's the point of them? Wait, what's the point of Celestic Town anyway?

    Nice. Yeah, Pokemon needed some religious aspect other than stupid Arceus, which, by the way, is not "god". It is, perhaps, a diety? But not a god. (Yes, I know I basically contradicted myself)

    You're all forgetting the biggest "What the f*ck?" in all of Pokemon. The truck at Vermillion Harbor. Why's it there? Where are all the other trucks of the Pokemon world? How did someone park it on an island with no connecting roads? Why was it redesigned and kept for FireRed and LeafGreen?

    Now, sometimes a truck is just a truck. But sometimes it's so much more...

    What about the one you ride into Littleroot in? As a matter of fact, why the heck are you riding in the back of the truck all the way from Johto in the first place?

    ^you make a good point, -BJ-. Look at a map of Japan, the easiest way to get from "Johto" to "Hoenn" would be a plane, unless you wanted to go to Kanto, get in a boat and go all the way up Japan, around "Sinnoh"(Hakkaido) and back down to Hoenn...They may have done that, went to petalburg, then rode down that short path down to Littleroot in a truck...*overthinking this*

    I can get into dex misprints, but im not going to...ill just go crazy from it.

    (Vulpix was supposed to be born white w/ one tail...why didnt they make a baby form for it in Johto, when babies were introduced. its too late now, because using an item to get that baby wouldnt make any sense...same w/ Kangaskid XP)

    oke, so i still did it!

    ...um*tries to think of something relevent*

    Why do pkmn say their names in the crappy anime? *gets shot*
    (i hate that so much...)

    So that the little kids don't reply to nintendo saying who's that pokemon if they just said their crys on the game.

    So that animals in the real world don't have to. Can you imagine how creepy it would be if everytime you saw a spider, it shouted "Spider! Spider!" at you?

    think them saying there name in anime is alot better then some werid thing they say that sounds the same with every pokemon.
    I wish they did something with the old cheatu old man,werid pokemon thing,and the painting man that painting scares me.
    I think the old cheatue should have been the place were you full asleep like if there was locked like that.

    Look at my.....

    Another Poke WTF is... why was the Unown so hyped in GS when all that happened when you caught all of them was you could print some stupid little stickers with an esoteric piece of hardware (And learned what each meant, wow, totally worth the time)?

    I had always assumed that poke'mon were named after each of their unique cries, so, Torchic, way back before Torchic was Torchic, Torchic said, "Torchic!" A Torchic watcher said "Hey, that Torchic that isn't called Torchic just said Torchic...I'll call it Torchic!"...Torchic.

    ^thats not how it is, cuz they have japanese names too. They just wanted the anime to be extra crappy, and take out all the animalistic attributes of pkmn...who ARE just animals in their own world =_="

    and Sonictay, the painting in the Old Chateau is a reference to R.O.B., the Famicom Robot that assisted in some games...(well thats what wiki says at least)

    anyways, Why do all the Gym leaders get progressively stronger as you fight them? what if someone started in Mauville, wouldnt they just fight Wattson 1st? MY explanation for this is that the Gym Leaders have numerous different teams, and after seeing the trainer theyre going to fight, they choose which one to use, so they dont overkill them. this is just my theory though @_@

    To make the game more difficult, of course. But aside from the obvious answer, I do get your point. Your theory seems to make a lot of sense; I've believed something like that for a while as well.

    Remmber, real world animals don't have levels, so it's not so clear-cut as a low level team, high level team...

    Private rooms. Maybe it's the laundry room or the kitchen or something. Must everything have a full and known explanation?

    So has this turned into a pokémon game plothole thread, then?
