Pokémon goof thread - “Game Freak is really bad at world building"

What's the big deal? It's called a fetish!

Ghost-type Pokemon are ghosts in name only- they're quite alive. Ghost types leave ghosts when they die. Can anyone, anyone at all, tell me why that is?

This is a franchise aimed at (man)children ages 7+ who don't really think critically about this shit. All they care about are the bright colors and capturing wild monsters with city-flattening powers and making these monsters participate in a legalized version of dog fighting.
