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!

  • I have one idea on why Darkrai did this. As you said, Defence. Legendary Pokemon have a huge bounty on their heads, especially with crooks like Ghetsis running amok. Self defence is the only explanation. Mistaken Defence. There, easy. Theory closed

  • This is sad in my opinion. Just how much hear parents tried so much to help her, but it did nothing.

  • I can’t remember if this happened or if someone else theorized it, but the Hypno and Drowzee who tried to help-the girl’s nightmare was so bad it killed them.

  • Maybe Darkrai is trying not to be captured if it thinks someone is a trainer?

  • I hv an idea so in a game idk what one you are asked to lay on a bed by someone then most likely dreaming you appear to be dropped off in an area by boat you go through the forest and see dark shadow boi when you talk to it it seems to be glitchy almost like it’s trying to startle you then you go into a battle you send out your first Pokémon but it glitches and it runs off there’s some dialog most likely by the man with you he talks about shadow bois strength then it gets dark you hear the pokecenter theme song and are awake in the room but the man is gone I think it has something to do with both kids maybe something they did or someone did to them caused dark shadow boi to basically give them a weird kind of sleep paralysis or an odd coma oh also when you exit someone talks to you saying you were asleep for a while and no one has been in the house for 50 years when you try to re enter the door is tightly shut

  • I think the girl went into darkrais territory and when it appeared she tried to attack using her abra that was when it sent her into the dark dream.

    Elliott DyeElliott Dye3 päeva tagasi
  • maybe the girl almost hurt one of darkrai's friends so darkrai tried to protect it

  • The symptoms that these children are experiencing sounds like the game version of sleep paralysis. Which sucks because it feels so real despite it only being a dream.

  • Maybe the "forget about the Lunar wing, stay here with me" was actually the parents on the verge of divorce because the father was dedicated to finding it to hopefully save his little girl, but the mom is actually the selfish step mom who was getting angry that he was never home.

  • The boy said that Darkrai was *watching over him* maybe darkrai saw some awful fate in the future and the only way to protect the children, was to give them the nightmares?

  • I feel like the dialogue “forget about the lunar wing, stay here with me” could’ve been her talking to her father, but I think it could also have been her nightmare trying to convince her to stay in the bad dream forever by using a familiar voice (her fathers) who she trusts

  • To help you on the last Darkrai bit Mat, Darkrai didn't actually do it on purpose. Darkrai did it on accident. It might just be that Darkrai is unable to control it's power and just accidentally put the poor girl in a never ending nightmare. And this is further hinted in Diamond and Pearl cuz you can find Darkrai a certain way. But once you find it, Darkrai is just in a dark and deserted part of a forest. Darkrai might've been trying to seclude itself from the world to avoid giving anybody any fatal nightmares.

  • I think I know why. Maybe she was battling darkrai with her abra but darkrai uses the move but the girl, to protect her abra, deflects the attack on herself. As this move is mainly meant for pokemon, she can't wake up with any ordinary move.

  • Maybe the girl tried to battle with Darkrai but because she didn’t knew that he is a legendary. Maybe that’s why he attacked the girl ( also she may had a very strong pokemon that’s why the Darkrai had to defend itself) pls notice me.!!!
