There's this age old question of, "What REALLY happens inside of a Pokeball?" And what's kinda of fun is seeing all fan-made illustrations of theories on how Pokeballs work.
As far as we know, when a Pokemon is captured inside a Pokeball, they appear to transform into this sort of data-like energy, allowing even the largest of monsters to fit inside these tennis ball sized capsules and be easily transported at a trainer's will. But, from the Pokemon's point of view, what would this "digital subspace" inside a Pokeball even LOOK like? How would it FEEL being transformed into a different state of matter and encased in a digital confinement? Do they even need to eat? A NPC in Pokemon Sun & Moon basically states you can leave a Pokemon in their capsule for months, even YEARS on end and they'll be perfectly fine, never even aged since entering.
Despite what you may think on the ethics of Pokemon capturing, Masuda at lease said they're comfortable to be in, though that does make me ask: In te Pokemon world, would it better for them to live in a bubble than the outside world?
