I found this on twitter. Apparently OMG facts thing there are remains of sky scrapers on route 4. And they think that Kyurem is a terrorist. The meteor didn't hit route 4, it hit where the giant chasm is. Get your facts right, OMG facts.
These people should play the games or at least check some websites before posting this shit.
Also, it's not ruins. It's a construction site to build.
Its close enough.... but the point is, even after meteors, the place doesnt turn into a desert? and btw, maybe castelia city would cover the desert.
This was already jossed on TV Tropes...
They're also ignoring the fact that Kyurem landed a long time ago, long before 9/11.
@Debauch: That last part has no bearing on whether it was a reference to Ground Zero or not.
Honestly, I doubt it is, but it certainly could be. Seemed more of a reference to constant construction in large cities to me.

*facepalm* Some people never play what they review.
It's not the first time.

Now, I seriously doubt it's the case with B/W, but if it is, it is simply a reference to a skyline changed not an attack. Though it inevitably has that connection.
@YeOldeJacob: Sure, but my comment was directed at the theory that WTC was once there, and was supposedly later destroyed by Kyurem. It's unlikely that any modern skyscrapers were there prior to the game's events, so it looks like any "change" is a result of recent expansion, not deconstruction. I don't think any theories on previous superstructures have much value, aside from the ruins of the Relic Castle in the Desert Resort.
