Pokémon has a long tradition of adding Easter eggs

The universe created through the Pokémon saga seems to have no limits. If this license has ever been missing from the list of games in your Nintendo library, chances are you’ve discovered that theThe company has always added details related to previous deliveries. That’s because the franchise has a long tradition of including Easter eggs in their titles, and “Pokémon Legends: Arceus” continues this curious custom. Did you notice that they incorporated a wide variety of references to other games in the series?

The most veteran players who have also had the opportunity to play this latest Game Freak project will have understood that there are many Easter eggs. However, some of them are so well hidden that only a small number of people have understood what they refer to. For example, even though the biome of “Pokémon Legends: Arceus” is based primarily on the Sinnoh region, a recent theory also links it to the Galar region.

Apparently, in the English description of Raichu in ‘Pokemon FireRed’ describes the creature explaining that “Their electrical charges can reach up to 100,000 volts. A careless touch can even cause an Indian elephant to faint.” The description can be quite unique, because in the first generation there was no pocket monster that even remotely resembled a “Indian Elephant”

In Raichu’s description, he explains that “I could shoot down a Copperajah, a Pokemon from my land”

Now, in the eighth generation of “Pokémon Sword” and “Pokémon Shield”, we have discovered that the characteristics of Copperajah would be based on this “Indian elephant”, and the description of Raichu in Professor Lavender’s pokédex in ‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ makes it very clear: “It releases electric shocks that exceed 100,000 V. With such power, it could knock over even a Copperajah, a Pokémon from my country.

Even if At no time is it literally said that Professor Lavender is from the Galar region, the description alludes to this possibility. Between the lines, it is stated that Raichu can defeat Copprejah, the steel-type Pokémon seen in the “Pokémon Sword and Shield” region and which the Professor points to as “his homeland.” However, in turn, in Copperajah’s own description of Galar, he says that “His greenish skin is waterproof. He comes from distant lands and assists people in the execution of certain works”.

Professor Lavender’s origin is a real mystery, don’t you think?
