When Pokémon was first introduced all those years ago, there were just 151 of the titular monsters. While this may have seemed like a lot back then, it is nothing compared to the almost 900 creatures the game boasts today.
Thankfully, on your travels through any Pokémon game, from Kanto to Galar, you have a handy Pokédex to help you keep track of every pocket monster you encounter. This little device details type, size, ability, and of course, a little summary telling you about the nature of the Pokémon in general.
Lots of these are fun little facts like how much Snorlax has to eat each day, or how Zangoose and Seviper are natural enemies. Some however, take a trip down a dark road. Much darker than is reasonable for what is supposedly a kids' adventure game.
With Pokémon out there that stalk humans as prey, literally accidentally kill their trainers with affection, and abduct children for fun, what kind of parents would let their ten year old child out into the world with nothing but a level five Bulbasaur?!
