Pokémon, short for Pocket Monsters, are the special creatures that inhabit the Pokémon world. A great number of species exist, some resembling animals, and others being plant-like or even based on inanimate objects. Each of them has one or two types, and some are able to evolve. Pokémon are found in the wild, but also often live peacefully with humans. Pokémon Trainers catch and train Pokémon, often using them in activities like battles.
