Unanswered Questions from Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra

ATLA. So true.
 Update: I have answered and added to this list in this post.

I am in love with this show. Both of them.

It's difficult for me to believe that a year ago, I was not a fan of either of them. Growing up, I had only seen a handful of episodes of ATLA. That's it. It wasn't until Spring of 2013 that I started watching the show on Netflix, then watched Book One of TLOK over the summer. Book Two of TLOK was just completed, and since ATLA is no longer on Netflix, I got all three Books on DVD for Christmas.

I said all that just to say this: I've become a huge fan.

I've watched every single episode, but there are still so many questions that have not been answered from both series. So I decided to make a list.

If you know the answers or have any thoughts on any of these, please comment or message me and let me know! =)
Also, be prepared for spoilers if you haven't seen everything.

  7. The show tells us that during the time of Wan, there were at least a dozen lion turtles, but all but one of them have been hunted down by the time of Aang. This sole surviving lion turtle possesses the power of energy bending. So...what kinds of bending techniques did all the others have?
    Lion Turtle
  8. Also, how does one go about hunting down a lion turtle?
  9. How does what we learn in TLOK about lion turtles bestowing bending powers correlate with what we learn in ATLA about people learning bending through the moon/sky bison/badgermoles/dragons? Do the lion turtles give them the ability to bend, but the others show them how to use the ability?
