        This is actually interesting; if this actually ends up having some connection with Terapagos abilities regarding memory or memory control, then “Temporal Forces” could just be meaning the memories it uses to…do whatever it is, that it is doing? If Terapagos and the Blue every Academy or Kitakami stuff is even involved in this stuff.

        Because Ogerpon’s whole Tera abilities had to do with memories as well! Would be a neat twist.

        It's doubly fitting when you consider, yeah, Iron Leaves / Walking Wake are markedly connected to the imaginary sketch in the book that was split up for Occulture. I still don't understand how timegays take the fricking magazine seriously.

        what do memories have to do with the future? memories are only things of past events

        • 3 months ago

          What are memories of the future then psychic visions? This is a reality where they have literal Psychics and a Pokémon Move called Future Sight.

          And I never said it had anything to do with the past or future, but that the fact ‘Temporal lobe’, being the part of the brain that controls memory, with a Pokémon that obviously projects or controls Memories on some level, yet to be totally defined, it could simply be that the Temporal is not time related, but memory related, like memories recalled to life, to act as a soldier or as part of a larger force.

        Nah, the temporal lobe isn't directly related to memories. Both short-term and long-term memories don't have a specific part of the brain where they are stored diffusely throughout the brain.
        Just as a curiosity, the hippocampus is a region located deep within the brain, that's generally associated with the storage of memories, though that's not it's actual function. In actuality, it's involved in the process of consolidating short-term memories into long-term storage, but it doesn't actually store it.

      I guess Dialga is imagination, then. It's called the Temporal lobe after your temples (sides of your head). It's obviously names after time instead. Check something like Spanish, for example.

    The most you're getting in DLC2 is an explanation on how Heath encountered the Paradox Pokemon centuries before the Time Machine was built and activated, how he knows what the frick a Koraidon/Miraidon is to put it on the cover of the Scarlet/Violet book, and some sort of forced parallel universe integration to explain why Briar has a design that invokes both the Scarlet and Violet books despite the books being mutually exclusive.

      This is exactly why they aren't from the past or future. There is no paradox if they were simply brought from another time period.

      Nope. That is likely the part to be left ambiguous, but there's a simple explanation in that him speaking with the AI professor to get the schematics to the time machine in the first place.
      We already know for a fact the original professor based their perception on some shitty tabloid, otherwise Walking Wake would not exist.

          A stable time loop is not a source of a Paradox though? It’s just a time loop.

          it's so funny because you are claiming that 'you win' unless a paradox is explained to you. you're the 8 year old that plays pretend and claim you are invincible to everything because you can't handle losing.

        If the AI does it, that nullifies the whole point of Briar existing. Briar's role in the story is to personally prove that Heath wasn't a lying sack of shit, and the best way for her to do that is to personally meet the man himself in that dreamlike location.
        Furthermore, why would the AI specifically go back to Heath's era when it explicitly says it's going to go to the Ancient Past/Faraway Future after you prepare to disable the Time Machine?

          >Briar's role in the story is to personally prove that Heath wasn't a lying sack of shit
          That's framing for the conflict that goes down in Area Zero. Terapagos' powers are based on desire, so what happens when an impossible desire meets an unlimited means of fulfillment?
          >Furthermore, why would the AI specifically go back to Heath's era when it explicitly says it's going to go to the Ancient Past/Faraway Future
          Because "time machine" can also equate to "time chamber" in which the place mentioned is removed from time altogether. That's where Paradoxes would come from under Imagination/Atlantis theory.

            Why do people use the hyperbolic time chamber from DB, when it makes no sense because how does that make sense of the Atlantis or I,agitation theories?

            Simply a pocket dimension out of sync with the normal flow of space/time in the Pokémon universe, surely makes more sense?

            Nah, the temporal lobe isn't directly related to memories. Both short-term and long-term memories don't have a specific part of the brain where they are stored diffusely throughout the brain.

              Cruxes on the AI not actually going to the Future or Past but rather the "paradise" described by the original professor that they intended for their family to live in.
              The professor's characterization in their logs only makes sense under imagination theory. If they actually intended to go to the future or past they'd just fricking die.

            Allow me to remind you that one of the primary reasons Briar wanted to look into Kitakami was because of the Crystal Pool, a location with Tera Crystals which has a local legend that quite literally states you can "meet those who have passed on" by gazing into the glowing waters.

      Time travel theory posits that the Ancient or Future Pokemon we see are actually from those time periods. Anything else is imagination.
      So yeah, if they leave it ambiguous instead of outright confirming that they are in fact ancient or future Pokemon, imagination wins by default because time travel has no reason to be left like that. It's an unironic "burden of proof" situation.

      It's not incorrect for them to say they are in that announcement because it's framed before the plot ends and there's any reason to question their origins at all.
      Until Arven points the oddity out, the player has no reason to think the professor was misdirected by their obsession other than the Occulture magazine in their lab. But the fact it's an issue of a Pokemon you end up finding anyway could still lead some to believe "huh it was sensationalized but there might be some truth behind it."
      The problem timegays can't comprehend is that Walking Wake / Iron Leaves in particular pointing out the imaginary sketch is the final nail in the coffin for them. Because in order to take Occulture seriously in their depictions of these things as ancient/future Pokemon, you also have to acknowledge that there are three missing entries prior to the ones you see in the prof's lab on Poco Path.
      The raids you're pulling from were capable of being tackled way before any of this is critically examined. As far as anyone cares, it's just a case of the magazine being "sort of" right.
