The Game Theorists

År siden

One of the most mysterious, unanswered questions in the Pokemon games is "Who is the Ghost Girl"? Throughout some of the games you come across ghost girls who disappear with no explanation. Super creepy when you are just a kid trying to play a game about cute little pocket monsters being forced into unending battles for your entertainment. Anyways, for as much as these ghosts have popped up throughout the game's history, there is little known about the lore. So today, Loyal Theorists, I am about to uncover the mystery of Pokemon's Ghost Girl!

A theory I have; You wonder why the hypno’s Pokémon entry says that he “Took a child away”? Well hypno couldn’t cope with the loss of the ghost girl’s death so he went to the child graveyard and got a shovel and got the child out of the grave and kept her body in a cave. He tried so hard to take care of the child’s body that he even stopped her from decaying and rotting. (Sorry guys)

Quick theory of why darkrai attacked the girl: I could’ve been possible when darkrai met the girl she befriended darkrai but abra was jealous of that and tried to attack him. Knowing that darkrai is way too powerful for one of abras attacks to do anything makes the theory a bit weird, where was I oh right so abra attacked darkrai and he took it as a threat sign making him think that she had bad intentions for darkrai so that doesn’t happen he curses her with the horrible nightmares

The only thing you gloss over is she had an Abra (or knew one). I think Abra is the missing piece. It senses danger and teleports to safety. Maybe it sensed Darkrai's attack and teleported her away, but in doing so mangled the nightmare into an everlasting sleep? Or... Maybe this Abra was maliscious. Kadabra's entry says a boy awoke one day transformed into a Kadabra. Maybe the Abra was trying to turn her into a Pokemon and Darkrai kept her asleep to avoid this fate? In any case, I think the Abra connection needs to be explored.

Maybe those kids wandered into Darkrai's territory? And he didn't like that, so he put them into a nightmare?

Hey matpat, there's another ghost story in pokemon. In pokemon sword and shield, you can find a little girl who wants to give someone a love letter so you go to the town she said he was in and the person is a old man who says that the little girl was an old friend who he hasn't seen since he was a kid and that they got in a fight over her not telling him she was severely sick and they haven't talked since, he asks you to see if she's okay but when you go back to mostroke to the spot she was in; she's gone...

Here's my view on it. Like the prophecies darkrai's dream turned out to be in the Pokemon movies, Darkrai was probably trying to tell the girl about an impending threat- Team Plasma. At first, the nightmares weren't dangerous, however once the parents brought in the Drowzees and Hypnos to try to eat the nightmare, Darkrai accidentally increased the magnitude of his nightmares on the girl, and they reached an all time high when he heard the father mention the Lunar Wing. The girl was the original protagonist, but that accident ended that As for Sailor Eldritch's son, think about this- his dad is a sailor. This may seem farfetched, but the kid could've used his dad's boat and accidentally stumbled onto Newmoon Island. He saw Darkrai , and like the Pokedex entry said, Darkrai probably felt threatened by his presence, and put him in the nightmare.

I have a theory, maybe the girl tried to fight Darkrai without knowing what it was. The Darkrai might have killed her pokemon and that why she called out for her pokemon. Then the Darkrai put her into an endless nightmare.

I have a Theory for this... What if the girl accidentally hit Darkrai? I mean sure it sounds stupid but think about it, if she was playing with Abra, she must've asked it to use a move for playful purposes, and since the attack must've wandered off somewhere, it might've accidentally hit Darkrai causing it to use that Defensive-Nightmare Attack on Abra, but since the attack must've been from a long ranged spot, and we all know not all Pokemon land a direct or accurate shot on their target, even Legendary Pokemon- even ARCEUS misses attacks sometimes, so Darkrai must've accidentally hit the girl when it was aiming for Abra. You might still be asking why didn't he undo it? Well, if it was from a long range, he must've not seen it hit the girl and thought to itself that it hit Abra somehow. Another reason for this is maybe because he has no idea how to do it since the only way to counter his Nightmares are through Cresselia's Lunar Wing, but since it's not confirmed where the Girl and Abra were playing, this Theory still has some gaps in it. But my idea is that it's somewhere far, or somewhere that Darkrai doesn't go out of or maybe it's way too scared to ask Cresselia for help since those two are opposing Pokemon

Darkrai has the ability bad dreams. It doesn’t get to choose who is affected by it. Anything asleep near it is affected and damaged by the ability. Darkrai means no harm it just simply doesn’t get to choose to not spread the bad dreams.

I think I have an idea how it might have happened. When you go to Newmoon Island in gen 4, you learn that Darkrai hides there to avoid accidentally afflicting nightmares to anyone, so we know that it can in fact happen by accident, that might be a potential explanation.

If I had to make a guess to why darkrai inflicted endless nightmares on these two children was because both of them may have encountered something they shouldn’t have and the only way to protect them from it darkai had to trap them in a nightmare just to keep them safe. Ofc this doesn’t mean darkai was in the right and caused harm to these children rather may have done this out of quick thinking due to whatever these children encountered, perhaps something more dangerous that darkai supposedly fears.

My guess is that darkrai got startled by the girl entering his territory without his knowledge at all, she entered randomly through abra teleported her and this lead to her getting infliced to everlasting nightmare, i think?

I think there's a reason. Firstly, she has an Abra and follow up it's Pokedex and it's move we see that it learn teleport. Now my theory is that maybe her Abra use teleport when it was playing with her. Unfortunately, it encounter Darkai. And when she finnaly caught up to her Abra. Dakrai got furious due to her Abra teleport. Darkai missed Abra again but the move it used hit the girl.

I have watched this theory about 4-5 times now and I think I can piece it all together, even if this video is extremely old and I have just recently revisited this theory. Here is what I think happened: The girl would play with her Abra, every day and explore the wilderness, as well as play around the area of where the bridge would be built. then one day they found the legendary Pokémon, Darkrai. The girl’s Abra was threatened and tried to protect the girl from Darkrai, only for Darkrai to attempt to detour the pokemon, however Darkrai didn’t know the girl would jump in front of her Abra, protecting Abra. The girl was put into a nightmare. Abra teleported back home to tell the girl’s parents where she was, they run to get her and take her home, Darkrai would have already left the area. They would take home the girl and attempt to save her, by using Drowsee’s dream eater, and Hypno’s forewarn. Her parents realized what has happened. Darkrai, a legendary, had put her in a nightmare. They began to read many, many, many books to find a way to save their child. The learned about the legendary known as Cresselia, and her wing. The father and mother set out to find Cresselia’s wing. The girl had known she wasn’t going to make it and tried to tell him to stay, in her final moments. He left. She then shortly after died. He came back and realized his daughter was dead. Gone. He had proceeded to leave the wing in his deceased daughter’s room. Her ghost took it to try and return it. She was never able to return it.

This girl is selfless. She’s literally dead and all she cares about is helping the Pokémon that could’ve saved her.

I think Darkrai somehow unintentionally did that to the girl. Maybe he can’t control his power that well, which would explain why he puts himself on an island away from people so he can’t harm them.
