Watch: Do Pokémon Sun and Moon prove a 20-year-old Pokéfan theory once and for all?

Make no bones about it.

Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, don't they. Well, everyone except for maybe Buzz Aldrin.

There are plenty of game theories knocking around the net, but one of the first and probably one of the most well known has to be about the relationship between the Pokémon, Cubone and Kangaskhan. I go into a bit more detail in the video below, but to cut a long story short, some people believe that a Cubone is an orphaned Kangaskhan baby that has been forced to wear it's dead mothers skull for protection. Cheery!

Like most theories, this creepy connection has been impossible to completely prove or disprove. But, with the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, we might finally be a lot closer to the truth.

Curious to find out more? Then check out the video below where I lay down some new evidence that seems to support the theory.

So, proof positive or just a lucky coincidence? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks for watching!
