Why You Are The Bad Guy In Pokemon

You have to love a good fan theory – some are so engaging that they actually improve films, and even the most ludicrous can actually have some basis in fact (when you really think about it) and the colourful world of video games has given birth to hundreds in the past.

Pokemon: You’re The Bad Guy

The internet is awash with Pokemon theories, as you might imagine from a game with so many fans and so rich a universe, and probably the most intriguing is that Ash isn’t actually as squeaky clean as he might first seem.


When you first meet your rival in Lavender Town in the original Pokemon Red/Blue, he asks if you know what it’s like to have one of your Pokemon die, and one theory has it that you killed his Raticate in a prior battle, setting him on a quest for vengeance.

You destroyed his life, and gave him a morbid reason d’etre, compelling him to become a champion, which he does, only for you to defeat him to become Indigo League Champion and force his grandfather to chastise him for his failure. Way to go.
