While this is a thread from 2011, I really want to post this so bear with me.

Before I begin, I would like to post these images as reference.






Common Arguments for the theory being true
-Cubone wears the skull of his mother. The only "mother" in the game is Kangaskhan, plus the skull looks like Kangaskan's head.
-Team Rocket killed Cubone's mother and you must battle the ghost in Kanto (this is proven true, sort of)
-Baby K and Cubone look very similar. Cubone could be larger state of Baby K
-The glitch pokemon M' evolves into Kangaskhan.
-It's Pokemon, strange things happen.

Now, let's start with the first two. They counteract each other... one would HAVE to be false. Why? Well, Cubone's "mother" is confirmed to be a Marowak, as if caught in Lavender Town, the Ghost is revealed to be a Marowak. So, the first one is proven wrong. The second doesn't make sense, as once again, Marowak. However, the first isn't true for another reason. The skull isn't the same as Kangaskhan's. Look, there is a noticable downward groove to make the snout on the skull. Kangaskhan's head is round and tough looking like a Cranidos's, so the skull wouldn't match. Plus, if that's not enough, the skull has a weird large tooth-like protrusion, one Kangskhan doesn't have. The third one is incorrect as well. While Cubone COULD be larger state of Baby K, it wouldn't add up. Toes and claws. Baby K has three claws on each hand and two toes on each foot. Cubone has one toe on each foot and a tiny tiny singular claw as a thumb. While the glitch of M' does evolve into Kangaskhan and it could be Baby K, there is no solid proof that it was Cubone. In fact, if it WAS Cubone, than it probably would've shown some sign of it being him. It was more likely to be Baby K in the first place. Just because "It's Pokemon," doesn't mean there isn't some realism to the game. Most pokemon are based off of animals and real world behaviors and looks. For instance, Miltank is a cow. Cows are strictly female and so is Miltank. Wearing a skull up and doesn't change what you'll grow up into. Death could in a normal human being... but that's emotionally, a whole other topic in psychology we'll avoid. Kangaskhan is based off of most mammals being VERY protective over their young, such as the one it's mostly based off of, the kangaroo. One last piece of info I would like to mention that most people who support this theory overlook. Kangaskhan and Cubone are different types. Baby K wouldn't be a ground type if it's mother was a normal type. Plus, if Cubone were a baby Kangaskhan it would evolve into Kangaskhan. And I won't start with

This theory COULD be true and they decided to scrap it early on, but since there is no silent proof, we'll have to call this false for now. I don't mean to crush your hopes, but it bothers me when I say "Oh, this doesn't seem right," and please, if you DO support this theory, don't hate on me. It's nice to have a theory, but all out putting all your cards on the table to say it's true... just isn't smart. Read this with your opinion on neither side... or try to look at it from the other side's perspective.

My brother always said Cubone is a disoriented Charmander; I don't know why. What I've wondered is "How could every Cubone have its mother's skull from the moment it hatches when its mother is not only obviously still alive but also usable in battle when you breed one?"
"At last, the promise has been made..." and then some. :ssb4cloud:
