Lore Discovery: Mind=Blown

Rate this Entry
Two Unova civilizations
Relic Castle: Inhabited by the followers of the hero who befriended the dragon that would be the player's.
Destroyed in a sandstorm, now buried in the earth.
Abyssal Ruins: Inhabited by the followers of the hero who befriended the dragon that would be N's.
Destroyed by a flood, now underwater

Two Hoenn Legendaries:
Groudon: Known to be patron of land, causes sandstorms
Kyogre: Known to be patron of sea, causes rain

Groudon destroyed the Relic Castle, causing its dragon to slumber deep within its chambers.
Kyogre destroyed the Abyssal Ruins, causing its dragon flee to the Dragon Spiral Tower.

Not sure why, but it makes sense.

    Wow. This is a really cool discovery. The only problem, is that Groudon causes droughts not sandstorms. (I don't think so, at least.)

    Groudon causes droughts. Not sandstorms.

    Droughts dry up the land, then the wind blows up sandstorms.

    It perfectly fits. I'm sure some people are gonna be using this as evidence of RSEmakes even though Gen VI starts in 8 months...

    Nice catch though!

    Groudon doesn't cause sandstorms, the two civilizations are also separated by 500 years with the Abyssal ruins being 3000 years old and Relic Castle 2500. Volcarona was also worshiped in the Relic Castle, and according to its legend, it acted as a proxy for the sun when it was blocked by volcanic ash and saved people from freezing in a bitterly cold winter (perhaps caused by the blocked sun?)

    B: When volcanic ash darkened the atmosphere, it is said that Volcarona's fire provided a replacement for the sun.
    BW2: Thought to be an embodiment of the sun, it appeared during a bitterly cold winter and saved Pokémon from freezing.
    I really doubt it was Groudon. If anything, I'd say it *may* have been Kyurem that devastated the land killing all plant life, resulting in a desert forming when all the ice melted. Volcarona in turn was able to save some people with its heat, allowing them to evacuate from Kyurem's ice. Of course, most of the people from that civilization would have died with only a few passing on the story. It was probably better for them to abandon the civilization.
