Fire Red’s Dex entry for Gastly says: “A being that exists as a thin gas. It can topple an Indian elephant by enveloping the prey in two seconds.” So not only does India exist, but elephants do as well.

Pokememes added at the bottom of the original photo (the one up there), “This is not a creepypasta, it’s a valid theory. Of course, it doesn’t explain Arceus creating the universe. Maybe Arceus “used” Pokérus to mutate Pokémon? Incidentally, Arceus is the only Pokémon not based on anything from the real world (Animal or otherwise).”

Just some food for thought.
