What are Pokémon? Pokémon come I all shapes and sizes. Each Pokémon has one or two types of moves (such as Grass, Fire or Water) which it uses in battle. Pokémon also develop their own personalities, likes and dislikes – just like humans do. Pokémon and humans have learned to live and work together in harmony to create a better life for all.
Pokémon grow and evolve in different ways. When Pokémon travel with a Pokémon trainer, they gain experience from battling other Pokémon and other trainers. Pokémon can also gain experience by staying at the Pokémon daycare, but nothing beats first-hand battle experience. All Pokémon have one or two innate element types. Pokémon types reflect the strengths and weaknesses as well as the environments they originated from. For example Fire-type Pokémon are often found near hot environments, excel in fire-type moves and are weak against Water-type moves. If you know what type of Pokémon your opponent is using, it is usually a good strategy to use the opposing type. Gym leaders and trainers always use one or two Pokémon types. Like most creatures, Pokémon live in environments suited to their needs. A skilled Pokémon trainer will search everywhere for Pokémon and learn where to find different types. Some Pokémon are more elusive than others. You will need key items such as a fishing pole to catch some Pokémon.
Starting out in the game you find yourself transformed into a Pokémon! After taking a Pokémon personality test the form of your Pokémon will be revealed. Washed ashore on the beach a fellow Pokémon is beside you asking for your help in finding lost treasure. You can form rescue teams to discover the mystery around your transformation as you hunt for lost treasure along the way.
