Pokémon, known as Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスターPoketto Monsutā) is a species that inhabits the Pokémon World. Normally, Pokémon that live in the Pokémon World replace the animals which inhabit the world.
Pokémon come in a variety of shapes, some are identical to normal animals.
After Pokémon hatch from an egg, they become known as Baby Pokémon, which is the pre-evolution of Pokémon. By having proper training from their trainer, the Pokémon will receive experience points and level up. When a Pokémon reaches a certain level, will gain a different form, giving them a new appearance and new abilities their previous form did not possess. This transition is called evolution.
Relationship with Human BeingsEdit
In the world of Pokémon, human beings have a strong relationship with Pokémon like Pokémon Trainers, who capture and train the creatures in their spare time.
Types and AttributesEdit
There are multiple types of Pokémon, which determine the strengths and weaknesses of different Pokémon species. They lay the foundation of a complex yet mostly logical "rock-paper-scissors" or "balance of powers" system that applies to every Pokémon and their respective moves. Some advantages and disadvantages are based on common sense (e.g. Fire-type Pokémon being weak to Water-type attacks), while others are not as obvious (e.g. Fire-type attacks being strong against Steel-type Pokémon, possibly because fire melts metal when at high temperatures).
