Pokémon (also known as Pocket Monsters) are creatures of the Pokémon World. They are used for several different reasons, from being caught and trained by Pokémon Trainers, to being used as pets and companions. They come in several type varieties, such as Grass, Electric, Water, Fire, and Normal.
Pokémon learn various moves, dependent on their type, which are used for battles. A Pokémon has HP (Hit or Health Points) and PP (Power Points). HP is the stamina of a Pokémon. Without health, the Pokémon can no longer fight, and faints. PP is similar to HP, but is used for attacks. If the PP of a move runs out, the Pokémon can't use that move again until healed or given a special item. If the PP of ALL of the attacks run out, the Pokémon can only use the move Struggle. To heal a Pokémon's HP and PP, its trainer must heal it at a Pokémon Center, or give it certain items, such as Ether, which restores 10 PP of a move, and Elixir, which restores 10 PP of all moves.
There are officially 721 known species of Pokémon, as of Generation 6. Out of all the known 721 Pokémon species, there are around 54 Legendary Pokémon. There are also 46 Pokémon capable of Mega Evolving (including four legendary Pokémon), with 48 Mega Evolutions in total.
Levels are a measurement of how strong a Pokémon currently is. Levels are featured predominantly in the Pokémon games. They are determined by how much experience that Pokémon has. A Pokémon's level will range from 1 to 100. When a Pokémon gains a level, its stats increase by a small amount. It may also learn a new move or evolve. Opponent's levels may be viewed in-battle, and players may see their own Pokémon's levels in-battle, in the PC or by using the menu.
A Pokémon's level will also affect its happiness, raising it slightly when the Pokémon levels up. This means that a Cleffa trained in battle will eventually evolve into a Clefairy, with its happiness going up slightly each level. Using Rare Candies will also raise happiness, though for a long time people thought it did not, due to a Pokémon's happiness also being raised by the large amount of walking.
In the Pokémon games, the level cap is level 100. When a Pokémon has reached level 100, it cannot gain any more experience or level up. Due to this, level 100 Pokémon cannot evolve in any way which requires levelling up.
Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon is a fan-created term referring to several Pokémon not officially titled "Legendary Pokémon" but share some similar qualities with them. The unofficial qualifications for a Pokémon to be known as a "Pseudo-Legendary" are:
The Pokémon must be the final of three evolutions.
Legendary Pokémon is a term referring to rare and powerful Pokémon, often referred to within legends passed down through history (hence the title).
Mythical Pokémon is a title referring to Legendary Pokémon so rare that their existence is doubted by some. In official cases, the term refers mostly to Pokémon available exclusively through events, with a sole exception.
All Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are listed below:
PokéGods are Pokémon that hold so much power they are classified as "gods" within the Pokémon universe. The "PokéGod" title refers exclusively to fan-created Pokémon, though several official Pokémon could also have this title applied to them.
Pokemon are a race of partially feral creatures who flock KirbiMiroir's World. Such creatures must be fought and defeated in battle in order to transform them to their rawest state, which can then be used to summon the Pokemon in battle. Those who can call upon Pokemon in battle are called 'Summoners'.
A Summoner cannot be dubbed for such a title unless they complete their pilgrimage, which consists of slaying a wild Behemoth, praying to the Goddess of Lightning and then completing the task she gives you. If one was to either have failed their pilgrimage or not complete it by Age 11, they will be completely stripped of their life, as will any Pokemon they have met along the way.
When summoned in battle, a Pokemon can use one of up to three special attacks or "moves". Once they have made 1-3 moves, they will exit battle and must be summoned again.
