    For some reason, GenderBender_9000's really made me laugh. Excellent pic for that theory too!

    Anybody else ever think it's disturbing that Nurse Joy ends every encounter with "We hope to see you again!"? Really? She hopes your Pokemon get injured over and over? Is healing them some sort of obsession she has? Maybe she has a crush on your character? We'll never know...
  • BladedFalcon - January 23, 2014 11:25 a.m.

    Well, if my theory turned out to be true, then that could be explained away as she being a cloned trained to say that, because again, for them it's good business to keep people coming back to Pokemon centers as much as possible, since that way people feel safe in using their pokemon for whatever they want, and so the pokemon-based lifestyle and economy can keep going as usual.
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 23, 2014 11:38 a.m.

    True. But even still, it's disturbing to think they'd WANT Pokemon to be injured, even if it ends in euthanasia.
  • BladedFalcon - January 23, 2014 11:54 a.m.

    Well, the entire concept of mine is meant to be disturbing, yeah :P And well, since the cloned nurses are in on the plot, they probably don't see Pokemon as living things anymore, due to how easy it is to kill and replace them XD
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 23, 2014 12:13 p.m.

    In your theory, it makes perfect sense! In real Pokemon world, it's sad because she still says it lol
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 23, 2014 4:18 a.m.

    Well that was fun

    Great community article! We love GR!

    The funny thing about the Pikmin one is it's actually true to an extent, Miyamoto tends to base his games of experiences in his life.

    I fail to see how Mass Effect 3's "Rogue AI Theory" differs from the simple, literal interpretation of the plot.
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 23, 2014 4:20 a.m.

    It's how I view the plot, but apparently not everyone saw it that way.
  • BladedFalcon - January 23, 2014 11:31 a.m.

    Um... that IS the plot. I don't think everyone else failed to see that. it's just that most never focused on that, but rather on the other plotholes plaguing the ending.
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 23, 2014 11:41 a.m.

    Some people failed to see it because more than one person thought my synopsis was a theory. That may be because the plot wasn't clear enough and they missed it. Or maybe they interpreted it some other way. But it's clear that not everyone saw it the way I put it. Kind of like the whole Cave and Caroline are Chell's parents theory. I don't think it's a theory because it seemed pretty clear to me that's what happened, but it was in last week's top 7 as a theory, so it's obvious that not everyone agrees.

    Well, if they failed to see it, that's their problem. The Extended Cut and the Leviathan DLC both pretty much confirmed that the Catalyst is an advanced AI. I believe the conversation with the Catalyst at the end of the game goes something like this: "You said you're the Catalyst, but... what are you?" "A construct. An intelligence designed eons ago to solve a problem. [...]" "So you're just an AI?" "Inasmuch as you are just an animal. I embody the collective intelligence of all Reapers." "But you WERE created?" "Correct." And the Leviathan said at the end of the Leviathan DLC: "[W]e created an intelligence with a mandate to preserve life at any cost. As the intelligence evolved, it studied the development of civilizations. Its understanding grew until it found a solution. In that instant, it betrayed us. It chose our kind as the first harvest." Don't really see any other way to interpret those quotes.
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 24, 2014 11:34 a.m.

    I don't either, but I'm not the person in question. So what's your point?
  • N7Spartan95 - January 24, 2014 1:01 p.m.

    I'm just saying that calling it a theory is simply mislabeling it. You might as well call it a "theory" that Darth Vader is Luke's father. The fact of the matter is that both of those things aren't theories about the plot subject to different interpretations; they're established facts about the story presented in as straightforward a manner as possible.
  • rainn'sgaydar - January 24, 2014 2:14 p.m.

    People call Chell being Cave and Caroline's daughter a theory too and I view it as fact just the same. It's barely arguing more than semantics. Good day.
  • SirManguydude - January 23, 2014 12:29 a.m.

    My favorite is the one with Gold Wolf which isn't a crazy fan theory. It has been officially stated that the Hero's Shade(the Gold Wolf) is in fact Link from OoT.
  • g1rldraco7 - January 23, 2014 2:52 a.m.

    Thank you for noting it isn't crazy :)
