Are Pokemon the source of all language?

As we get more and more in the groove with Pokemon X and Y, the staff at GamesRadar keeps finding new mysteries with the endlessly intriguing Pokemon. As part of our continuing weekly video series we search for the unknown in the Poke-world and try to uncover decades (over even millenniums) old secrets. For instance, this episode of Pokemon Weekly tries to find the root of all language in the Pokemon world. Do pocket monsters talk like people, or is it the other way around? Did humans slowly evolve and create language after hearing Pokemon speak their "names" aloud? See the evidence for yourself in our video below, and then feel free to move on to our Pokemon X and Y review, complete Pokedex, and guides to Mega Stone locations and Pokemon-amie, along with subscribing to our YouTube channel so you don't miss another episode.

Pokemon Weekly is GamesRadar's weekly Pokemon X and Y show. The title was a pretty obvious hint. Come back every Tuesday for the latest news, analysis, and speculation about the next generation of Pocket Monsters. You can also check out our Pokemon X and Y review.
