I was wondering if anything such as a Poké Ball can exist. They are said to transform the physical creatures into energy. Could something like this ever be possible?
I was also wondering if matter can be shrunk or unshrunk. I understand that this has been the subject of many science fiction plot lines, such as Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, but is this plausible? Perhaps when the creatures are turned into energy, they are just shrinking to be small enough to fit inside a baseball / golf ball sized object.
If not, could such a device store information about a creature? If that is the case, would these creatures have memories, or would they have to be created on the fly? I assume if data can be collected properly we can form physical objects as long as we have enough detail. I imagine this working like a cellular 3D printer, where each cell can be constructed, though it may need to have even more detail, like a molecular 3D printer.
Are memories able to be mapped as information? How are they stored in the brains of animals? Do the Pokémon have memories?
