Launched in Pokémon: Black and White, Pure Harmonia Gropius, generally known as N, is one thing of an enigma. Having the “heart of a Pokémon” and with the ability to converse with them due to it has all the time made this character stand aside from the remainder. He was even raised by Pokémon at first, solely to be discovered and groomed to turn out to be the chief of a world that separated Pokémon from their perceived human abusers by his surrogate father, Ghetsis. Nevertheless, many consider that N was by no means a human in any respect, however somewhat is a Pokémon in disguise.
Within the Pokémon world, there are lots of totally different Pokémon that possess equally assorted talents. Some can levitate, some can create hail or sandstorms from nothing, however others have much more peculiar talents. One such skill is “Illusion,” held completely by the 2 Pokémon Zorua and Zoroark, who coincidentally sufficient are Pokémon largely related to N. N certainly had Zorua up to now, which many consider he launched and advanced right into a Zoroark that watches over him, however as a result of gamers are supposedly provided that very Zorua as a present in Black 2 and White 2, that is unattainable.
The speculation states that the human N, as gamers and anime watchers know him, by no means truly existed. As an alternative, N was the Pokémon Zoroark the whole time. Whereas this may increasingly appear just a little loopy at first, there are lots of cases the place Pokémon have pretended to be people, particularly Zoruas and Zoroarks. On a number of events within the video games, the participant meets “people” that transform Zoruas or Zoroarks. In a single occasion with the latter, a person even tells the participant about Zoroarks earlier than giving them a TM — proper after they step away and switch right into a Zoroark earlier than operating off. This proves that Zoroarks can converse human language, and even explains how N is able to talking to Pokémon.
There may be even a second within the video games the place the participant goes out to discover a Zoroark that howls their identify of their sister’s dream. As soon as the participant arrives on the location from the dream, they really do come throughout a Zoroark that runs contained in the ruins of N’s Fortress. Curiously although, as soon as inside, the one individual there may be N, with none signal of the Zoroark. Whereas some may simply assume that the Zoroark returned to N’s Pokéball, that will be unattainable as a consequence of the truth that he had launched all his Pokémon other than both Reshiram or Zekrom (relying on what model of the sport is being performed). With that being mentioned, it appears the one potential conclusion is that N and the Zoroark are one and the identical.
As unusual as it would sound, this could possibly be potential although N is meant to be a coach. Mewtwo famously tried to turn out to be a Pokémon coach within the very first movie of the sequence. He stored his Pokémon in Pokéballs and even had them battle different trainers in an official-style match. Whereas Mewtwo finally gave up on this fantasy, it does present that it is potential.
The most important wrench on this idea is that it could be unattainable for nobody to seek out out. Nevertheless, simply because it is unattainable does not essentially imply it could actually change something. Ghetsis would undoubtedly know of Zoroark’s phantasm, and there is even a variety of proof to say that he did. He constantly claimed that N had the “heart of a Pokémon” and continuously claimed he wasn’t an actual human. Whereas gamers most likely assumed that these have been both metaphorical statements or insults respectively, it could possibly be argued that they have been fairly literal statements. Furthermore, contemplating Ghetsis was confirmed to be a grasp manipulator and a phony who did not actually consider what he preached, it is easy to think about him as simply one other human utilizing and manipulating a Pokémon for his personal profit.
All in all, N’s standing as a human is sort of the thriller. Given all of the proof in addition to Zoroark’s significance all through the video games of that technology, it is fairly simple to think about this idea being true. Even on a bodily stage, they share similarities, most notably their lengthy hair and slender frames. In some methods, N being a Pokémon in disguise would truly make extra sense than it could if he wasn’t. One factor’s for certain — if N is a Pokémon, everybody needs to be glad that he by no means kisses Ash. That was weird, Latias. That was real weird.
