We’ve all wondered what is happening to these Pocket Monsters after they’ve been taken captive. What’s inside the Poke Ball, along with how Pokemon can stay in one for the duration of.
Since the show’s debut in 1996, the fans have been asking this question: What’s in the Poke Ball?
It would seem that 2 1/2 years ago, this question could have been solved more precisely. Yet, what exactly the inside of the inside of a Poke Ball looks like still remains an open question. The closest we’ve ever come to this answer was an interview from 2016, where the producer of the series Junichi Masuda said the following (cryptic) statement:
I believe it’s an accurate statement to state that you’re cozy inside of the game of Pokeball It’s a relaxing environment, possibly something like a suite in a luxurious hotel.
To claim that Masuda did not leave the inside of the Poke Ball looks like up to interpretation is an understatement. Based on the way it sounds, Masuda could be describing anything from Genie’s lamp from Aladdin to the Polly Pocket miniature model dollhouse.
Thankfully that the Pokemon movies, anime and video games as well as other media have provided us with clues as to how they work as well as how they’re created and what the limits of these capsules that capture monsters are.
What’s the inside of the inside of a Poke Ball look like?
Based on the description above one can only conclude that, rather than being just a digital space, the interior of the Poke Ball provides an environment that meets the basic requirements for the Pokemon that have been taken. It’s not easy to imagine that a Poke Ball with, like couches, beds carpet, TV and so on. because the first reason is that) it’s a lot like The Matrix, and b) it’s not exactly a good explanation for the reason why wild Pokemon tend to be in a state of reluctance to be caught.
If we consider the meaning of Masuda’s words a bit more loosely, it could be the case it is possible that inside the Poke Ball contains a nature-like setting that the Pokemon is most comfortable in. For instance the Pancham could have a space that is full of bamboo, while a Pokemon could contain a digital space filled with computer equipment and other similar items.
There’s a lot of possibilities as well, and considering that the bulk people believe that the Pokemon series is based on magic and based on magic, it’s no surprise if its creators came out and claim the Poke Balls are made of technology that is modern enough to provide an exclusive environment for each Pokemon available. I’m wondering what Arceus might appear like?
How can Pokemon stay alive inside the Poke Ball?
One of the members from The Elite Four has gifted us with an important solution to this question. When Pokemon who have been weak during battle are reintroduced in an Poke Ball, they curl into a fetal position to aid in healing of the injuries they sustained, according to Psychic-Type’s Elite Four member Lucian.
A different article addresses the issue of the reason Pokemon could be in the Pokeball. According to the article, the reason for this behavior is instinct. A Pokemon that is weak will curl up tightly to try and recover itself. This is why the Poke Ball was invented to make use of this defense instinct.
Lucian’s above quote from Diamond/Pearl/Platinum does shed light on how Pokemon survive in their Poke Balls, but still leaves out a fairly important element: how Pokemon eat in a Poke Ball. My hypothesis is that Pokemon within the Poke Ball can fall into the state of hibernation. But these have been (presumably) carbon-based which means they will eventually require food to transform into energy calorific. Perhaps there’s some magic-science that is transforming the electronic pulses that are inside the Poke Balls?
Do you think you can catch a human using the help of a Poke Ball?
No. The show has made this quite clear: there’s certain “markings” of Pokemon which indicate that they were taken. It is a digital registration that is enabled through the genetic nature of Pokemon.
In terms of the way Poke Balls function there are clues as to where they came from through Kurt Blacksmith, a blacksmith of sort in Azalea Town, who makes Poke Balls made of Apricorns. The Apricorns are tough organic materials that resemble nuts. They is then fashioned into an Poke Ball. The process, as described in the animated show is honed since an early period, when civilizations made Poke Balls of stone.
The reason why the Poke Ball cannot catch a Pokemon already registered by a different trainer is due to the described characteristic markings digital. Pokemon must be released to allow this digital mark to be released.
