With Sword and Shield now approaching, we move on to the next generation! Problem is, a lot of the older games still have so many weird things and unanswered questions that will probably never be solved now.

Personally? The thing I want to know about the most are those external doors into the Kalos Power Plant. You can never open them, they just sit there unassuming and locked. Was it meant to be an event thing like the cancelled Gen 4 Events? Were they going to add more there and didn't have enough time? It kills me not knowing this.

What about yourselves? What questions would you want to have answered about generations passed?

X and Y have a lot of unanswered questions, they don't feel like a finished game to me. The third Z version was necessary for the more complete Kalos adventure and a better story but they skipped it and went straight to the Gen 8. :(

Some of the things that are left unanswered besides the Power Plant are the creepy "You are not the one." Ghost Girl that appeared in both XY and ORAS and the other is the Couriway Towns Train Station (Where does it lead? Does it connect to another region or some other post game city similar to Kiloude City that was scrapped during the development?). Zygarde and it's forms were obviously meant to be the plot point of the Z version but after scrapping the game they just put Zygarde cells in Alola without any good explanation. Ugh...

Can you tell how much it frustrates me that the Kalos games were treated so badly by the Game Freak? No wonder they are the worst mainline Pokemon games now. :(

Dragonite, usually
Not quite what you're asking I think and this is technically current gen for a few more months, but when the original Sun and Moon came out I found this somewhere. Most of them amount to "we had a shipping deadline," and some are more intriguing than others. I don't really know what data mines have come out since this document was written, but I especially find #7 rather fun/upsetting if true.

Speaking of data mining, some of you may enjoy The Cutting Room Floor if you don't already.

These are usually what I think of when I think of lore-related mysteries, the train station in particular. I can't help but shake the feeling that the train station was supposed to be a much more interesting location than it ended up being in the final game.

I know it's an old mystery but it still always confuses me but it is amazing. I've read fan theories and stuff but I don't know.

Why is it that when you battle Red in HGSS he just disappears? The theories state that he is a ghost which seems reasonable as he embarked on a journey to Mt. Silver and never returned which makes us believe he died. So is the reason he disappears because he is satisfied with one last good battle? But then when you beat the E4 again he reappears, is this because he yearns for more as you are a formidable opponent?

The chances of this being answered in the inevitable Gen 4 remake are slim but:

Who are the ghosts of the Old Chateau and why are they dead?
