Any fan of Pokemon with at least a tiny bit of empathy must have spent some time wondering what life inside a Pokeball is like for Pokemon. Are these poor, subservient creatures folded down like origami and jammed into a tiny ball like a baby cow in a cage waiting to be turned into veal or is the inside of a Pokeball different than what we assume?
According to one of Pokemon Moon’s developers, Junichi Masuda, it is not nearly as bad as we assume. Via Kotaku:
“I think it’s safe to say that it’s very comfortable inside inside of a Pokeball, it’s a very comfortable environment,” Masuda laughed. “Maybe the equivalent of a high-end suite room in a fancy hotel.”
So there is the saddest reality of all. Pokemon live better than most of us.
