Do you think an afterlife exists in the Pokeverse, given the dex entries of Pokemon like Drifloon and Drifblim?

I think I’m just going to refer you to this:

But in short: I don’t know, and I don’t really think we’re supposed to know.  It is, in-universe, a mystery.

  1. It seems to be confirmed at least in the anime, as there are numerous instances of honest-to-goodness ghosts of dead people, and even an episode where a Dusknoir is trying to take the lost soul of a little girl back to the spirit world, as is even stated in its pokedex entries.

    1. Plus like… Ash “died” in season 1 and became a ghost for one episode. I think that implies early on that, in the anime world at least, there is at least SOME sort of afterlife.

      1. I think I said this, in the thing I linked to? Like, not those specific examples, but… yeah; there is “something” which does not appear to deliberately reference any specific real-world tradition, and its nature and rules (if indeed it has any) are unclear, I suspect deliberately.

        1. I kind of realized that you posted about that after commenting. I also noticed you even gave the specific Dusknoir episode example.
