Over the years, there have been a lot of arguments among the Pokemon fans about what happens when someone captures a Pokemon into a Pokeball. Many people have come up with a lot of theories but no one is absolutely certain what’s going on.

There has been a lot of confusion on what happens to the Pokemon when it goes inside a Pokeball. Does it diminishes in size? What is actually inside a Pokeball? Mechanical gears, chemicals, is it like a womb?

To uncover some of the unknown truths about Pokeballs, our friend at Kotaku, Patricia Hernandez spoke to Junichi Masuda, producer of Pokémon Sun and Moon.

“I think it’s safe to say that it’s very comfortable inside inside of a Pokeball, it’s a very comfortable environment,” Masuda said in a laughing tone.

He added, “Maybe the equivalent of a high-end suite room in a fancy hotel.”

So, you don’t need to worry about the monsters anymore. They are well taken care of and probably live in an even more luxurious flat than you.
