Biology


Part of its internal anatomy, as seen in its conceptual art
Poliwhirl is a blue, bipedal Pokémon with a spherical body, It has bulbous eyes that protrude from the top of its head, A black and white swirl covers its belly, which are actually its organs showing through its thin skin, It appears to have white gloves on its hands and rounded, digit-less feet,
While Poliwhirl is capable of moving on land, it prefers to stay in freshwater ponds and lakes, When out of water, it sweats to keep its skin moist, It is always covered in an oily fluid that allows it to slip away from enemies, All of its skin feels this way except where its swirl is, which is very smooth, The swirl on its belly undulates slowly, and st*ring at it induces drowsiness,

Trivia


Poliwhirl in the original Tokyo Pokémon Center logo
The logo for the Pokémon Center in Tokyo featured Poliwhirl until it was replaced by Piplup in July 2007,
Poliwhirl was also featured prominently on the center of the November 22nd, 1999 issue of Time Magazine,
Poliwhirl's sprites and artwork are inconsistent with respect to its gloves, Sometimes they are depicted as mittens, while other times they have separate fingers,
All spritework from FireRed and LeafGreen onwards feature Poliwhirl with mitten-like hands, Because of this, Poliwhirl is one of the few Pokémon to have its Emerald sprite differ from the Ruby and Sapphire one,
Poliwhirl shares its category with Poliwag, Poliwrath, and Tympole, They are all known as the Tadpole Pokémon,
Origin
Poliwhirl is based on a glass frog, The spiral pattern on its belly is supposed to represent how the organs of these frogs and other tadpoles can sometimes be seen through their transparent skin, Its evolution is based on a tadpole's metamorphosis,
Name origin
Poliwhirl may be a combination of polliwog and whirl (referring to the spiral on its stomach),
Nyorozo is derived from ニョロニョロ nyoronyoro (the sound of slithering),

Name[edit]
The name Pokémon is the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā),[17] The term Pokémon, in addition to referring to the Pokémon franchise itself, also collectively refers to the 802 fictional species that have made appearances in Pokémon media as of the release of the seventh generation titles Pokémon Sun and Moon, "Pokémon" is identical in both the singular and plural, as is each individual species name; it is grammatically correct to say "one Pokémon" and "many Pokémon", as well as "one Pikachu" and "many Pikachu",[18]
Concept[edit]
File:The Story of Satoshi Tajiri,webm
An animated history of how Satoshi Tajiri came to conceive Pokémon
Tajiri first thought of Pokémon, albeit with a different concept and name, around 1989 or 1990, when the Game Boy was first released, The concept of the Pokémon universe, in both the video games and the general fictional world of Pokémon, stems from the hobby of insect collecting, a popular pastime which Pokémon executive director Satoshi Tajiri enjoyed as a child,[19] Players are designated as Pokémon Trainers and have three general goals: to complete the regional Pokédex by collecting all of the available Pokémon species found in the fictional region where a game takes place, to complete the national Pokédex by transferring Pokémon from other regions, and to train a team of powerful Pokémon from those they have caught to compete against teams owned by other Trainers so they may eventually win the Pokémon League and become the regional Champion, These themes of collecting, training, and battling are present in almost every version of the Pokémon franchise, including the video games, the anime and manga series, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game,
In most incarnations of the Pokémon universe, a Trainer who encounters a wild Pokémon is able to capture that Pokémon by throwing a specially designed, mass-producible spherical tool called a Poké Ball at it, If the Pokémon is unable to escape the confines of the Poké Ball, it is officially considered to be under the ownership of that Trainer, Afterwards, it will obey whatever commands it receives from its new Trainer, unless the Trainer demonstrates such a lack of experience that the Pokémon would rather act on its own accord, Trainers can send out any of their Pokémon to wage non-lethal battles against other Pokémon; if the opposing Pokémon is wild, the Trainer can capture that Pokémon with a Poké Ball, increasing his or her collection of creatures, Pokémon already owned by other Trainers cannot be captured, except under special circumstances in certain side games, If a Pokémon fully defeats an opponent in battle so that the opponent is knocked out ("faints"), the winning Pokémon gains experience points and may level up, When leveling up, the Pokémon's statistics ("stats") of battling aptitude increase, such as Attack and Speed, At certain levels, the Pokémon may also learn new moves, which are techniques used in battle, In addition, many species of Pokémon can undergo a form of metamorphosis and transform into a similar but stronger species of Pokémon, a process called evolution,
In the main series, each game's single-player mode requires the Trainer to raise a team of Pokémon to defeat many non-player character (NPC) Trainers and their Pokémon, Each game lays out a somewhat linear path through a specific region of the Pokémon world for the Trainer to journey through, completing events and battling opponents along the way (including foiling the plans of an 'evil' team of Pokémon Trainers who serve as antagonists to the player), Each game (excluding Sun and Moon) features eight especially powerful Trainers, referred to as Gym Leaders, that the Trainer must defeat in order to progress, As a reward, the Trainer receives a Gym Badge, and once all eight badges are collected, that Trainer is eligible to challenge the region's Pokémon League, where four immensely talented trainers (referred to collectively as the "Elite Four") challenge the Trainer to four Pokémon battles in succession, If the trainer can overcome this gauntlet, he or she must then challenge the Regional Champion, the master Trainer who had previously defeated the Elite Four, Any Trainer who wins this last battle becomes the new champion,
In Sun and Moon, however, the Gym Leaders are not present, and are instead replaced with "Trial Captains", a NPC who gives the Trainer a challenge to complete so as to earn a special item, Once the player completes all of these on an island, the Trainer must take on the Island Kahuna, the strongest Trainer on the island, Once the player beats all the Kahunas, they must travel to the recently built Pokémon League, where they must re-defeat two of the Kahunas and two strong Trainers, who now form the Elite Four, and then defend their newly received title against challengers,
Video games[edit]
Main article: Pokémon (video game series)
Generations[edit]
The original Pokémon games were role-playing games (RPGs) with an element of strategy, and were created by Satoshi Tajiri for the Game Boy, These RPGs, and their sequels, remakes, and English language translations, are still considered the "main" Pokémon games, and the games which most fans of the series are referring to when they use the term "Pokémon games", All of the licensed Pokémon properties overseen by The Pokémon Company International are divided roughly by generation, These generations are roughly chronological divisions by release; every several years, when an official sequel in the main RPG series is released that features new Pokémon, characters, and gameplay concepts, that sequel is considered the st*rt of a new generation of the franchise, The main games and their spin-offs, the anime, manga, and trading card game are all updated with the new Pokémon properties each time a new generation begins, The franchise began the seventh generation on November 18, 2016,

Generation 1[edit]
The Pokémon franchise st*rted off in its first generation with its initial release of Pocket Monsters Aka and Midori ("Red" and "Green", respectively) for the Game Boy in Japan on February 27, 1996, When these games proved extremely popular, an enhanced Ao ("Blue") version was released sometime after, and the Ao version was reprogrammed as Pokémon Red and Blue for international release, The games launched in the United States on September 30, 1998, The original Aka and Midori versions were never released outside Japan,[21] Afterwards, a further enhanced version titled Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition was released to partially take advantage of the color palette of the Game Boy Color, as well as to feature more elements from the popular Pokémon anime, This first generation of games introduced the original 151 species of Pokémon, in National Pokédex order, encompassing all Pokémon from Bulbasaur to Mew, It also introduced the basic game concepts of capturing, training, battling, and trading Pokémon with both computer and human players, These versions of the games take place within the fictional Kanto region, inspired by the real world Kantō region of Japan, though the name "Kanto" was not used until the second generation,
Generation 2[edit]
The second generation of Pokémon began in 1999 with the release of Pokémon Gold and Silver for Game Boy Color, Like the previous generation, an enhanced version titled Pokémon Crystal was later released, The second generation introduced 100 new species of Pokémon, st*rting with Chikorita and ending with Celebi, The Pokédex totaled 251 Pokémon to collect, train, and battle, set in Johto, inspired by Japan's Kansai region, The Pokémon mini is a handheld game console released in November 2001 in North America, December 2001 in Japan, and 2002 in Europe,
Generation 3[edit]
Pokémon entered its third generation with the 2002 release of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire for Game Boy Advance and continued with the Game Boy Advance remakes of Pokémon Red and Blue, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, and an enhanced version of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire titled Pokémon Emerald, The third generation introduced 135 new Pokémon, st*rting with Treecko and ending with Deoxys, for a total of 386 species, Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald are set in Hoenn, inspired by Japan's Kyushu region, However, this generation also garnered some criticism for leaving out several gameplay features, including the day-and-night system introduced in the previous generation, It was also the first installment that encouraged the player to collect merely a selected assortment of the total number of Pokémon rather than every existing species, By contrast, 202 out of 386 species are catchable in the Ruby and Sapphire versions,
Generation 4[edit]
In 2006, Japan began the fourth generation of the franchise with the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for Nintendo DS, The fourth generation introduced another 107 new species of Pokémon, st*rting with Turtwig and ending with Arceus, bringing the total of Pokémon species to 493,[22] The Nintendo DS "touch screen" allows new features to the game such as cooking poffins with the stylus and using the "Pokétch", New gameplay concepts include a restructured move-classification system, online multiplayer trading and battling via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, the return and expansion of the second generation's day-and-night system, the expansion of the third generation's Pokémon Contests into "Super Contests", and the new region of Sinnoh, This region was inspired by Japan's Hokkaido region and part of Russia's Sakhalin, and has an underground component for multiplayer gameplay in addition to the main overworld, Pokémon Platinum, the enhanced version of Diamond and Pearl—much like Pokémon Yellow, Crystal, and Emerald—was released in September 2008 in Japan, March 2009 in North America, and May 2009 in Australia and Europe, Spin-off titles in the fourth generation include the Pokémon Stadium follow-up Pokémon Battle Revolution for Wii, which has Wi-Fi connectivity as well,[23] Nintendo announced in May 2009 that enhanced remakes of Pokémon Gold and Silver, entitled Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, would be released for the Nintendo DS system, HeartGold and SoulSilver are set in the Johto region and were released in September 2009 in Japan[24] and March 2010 in North America,[25]
Generation 5[edit]
The fifth generation of Pokémon began on September 18, 2010, with the release of Pokémon Black and White in Japan for Nintendo DS,[26] The games were originally announced by the Pokémon Company on January 29, 2010, with a tentative release later that year,[27][28] The final release date of September 18 was announced on June 27, 2010,[29] This version is set in the Unova region (イッシュ地方 Isshu-chihō, Isshu region), inspired by New York City, and utilizes the Nintendo DS's 3-D rendering capabilities to a greater extent than Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, as shown in game footage of the player walking through the Castelia City (ヒウンシティ Hiun Shiti) metropolis, A total of 156 new Pokémon were introduced, st*rting with Victini and ending with Genesect, bringing the franchise's total to 649, This is currently the only time that the number of Pokémon introduced surpasses the number introduced in the first generation,[30] It also deployed new game mechanics such as the C Gear (Cギア C Gia) wireless interactivity features[31] and the ability to upload game data to the Internet and to the player's own computer,[32] Pokémon Black and White was released in Europe on March 4, 2011, in North America on March 6, 2011, and in Australia on March 10, 2011, On June 23, 2012, Nintendo released Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 in Japan for Nintendo DS, with early October releases in North America and Europe, Black 2 and White 2 are sequels to Black and White, with several events in the second games referencing events in the first; they also allow players to link their previous Black or White with their Black 2 or White 2, introducing several events based on how they played their previous game,
Generation 6[edit]
Officially announced on January 8, 2013, and released simultaneously worldwide on October 12, 2013, Pokémon X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS are part of the sixth generation of games,[33] Introducing the France-inspired Kalos region, these are the first Pokémon games rendered in 3D, and the first released worldwide together,[34] A total of 72 new Pokémon were introduced, st*rting with Chespin and ending with Volcanion, bringing the franchise's total to 721, The fewest new Pokémon in a single generation so far; however, the new Mega Evolution feature was added to the games to balance out the lack of new characters, Another addition was the Fairy typing, the first new type since Dark and Steel in the second generation, On May 7, 2014, Nintendo announced remakes of the third generation games Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire titled Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire which were released in Japan, North America, Australia, and South Korea on November 21, 2014, and in Europe on November 28, 2014,
Generation 7[edit]
Officially announced on February 26, 2016, Pokémon Sun and Moon for the Nintendo 3DS are part of the seventh generation of games, and the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the franchise, introducing the Hawaii-inspired Alola region, Both games were released worldwide on November 18, 2016, in nine languages; Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, and, for the first time, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified),[35] A total of 81 new Pokémon were introduced, bringing the total to 802, Though no new mega evolutions were added, a new type of form was added for specific Pokémon, changing their types and move sets, A new type of move was added as well, called the Z-move, Usable by any Pokémon, Z-moves are extremely powerful and as such can only be used once per battle,
Game mechanics[edit]
Main article: Gameplay of Pokémon
The main staple of the Pokémon video game series revolves around the catching and battling of Pokémon, st*rting with a st*rter Pokémon, the player can catch wild Pokémon by weakening them and catching them with Poké Balls, Conversely, they can choose to defeat them in battle in order to gain experience for their Pokémon, raising their levels and teaching them new moves, Most Pokémon have 'evolution families', a term which refers to the Pokémon to evolve into or be evolved into more powerful forms by raising their levels or using certain items, Throughout the game, players will have to battle other trainers in order to progress, with the main goal to defeat various Gym Leaders/Trials and earn the right to become the regional champion, Subsequent games in the series have introduced various side games and side quests, including the Battle Frontiers that display unique battle types and the Pokémon Contests where visual appearance is put on display,
st*rter Pokémon[edit]
One of the consistent aspects of the Pokémon games—spanning from Pokémon Red and Blue on the Game Boy to the Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Sun and Moon—is the choice of one of three different Pokémon at the st*rt of the player's adventures; these three are often labeled "st*rter Pokémon", Players can choose a Grass-type, a Fire-type, or a Water-type,[36] For example, in Pokémon Red and Blue (and their respective remakes, Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen), the player has the choice of st*rting with Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle, The exception to this rule is Pokémon Yellow (a remake of the original games that loosely follows the story of the Pokémon anime), where players are given a Pikachu, an Electric-type mouse Pokémon, famous for being the mascot of the Pokémon media franchise; in this game, however, the three st*rter Pokémon from Red and Blue can be obtained by meeting certain requirements in game, such as Pikachu having full happiness,[37] Another consistent aspect is that the player's rival will always choose as his or her st*rter Pokémon the one that has a type advantage over the player's Pokémon, For instance, if the player picks a Grass-type Pokémon, the rival will always pick the Fire-type st*rter, An exception to this is again Pokémon Yellow, in which the rival picks an Eevee, but whether this Eevee evolves into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon is decided by when the player wins and loses to the rival through the journey, Pokémon Sun and Moon are also an exception where the rival will pick the st*rter weak toward the players, with the remaining st*rter used elsewhere, The GameCube games Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness also contain an exception; whereas in most games the player's initial Pokémon st*rts at Level 5, in these two games the player's initial Pokémon st*rts at Levels 10 and 25, respectively, In Colosseum the player's st*rter Pokémon are Espeon and Umbreon, while in Gale of Darkness the player's st*rter is Eevee,
Pokédex[edit]
The Pokédex is an electronic device featured in the Pokémon video game and anime series, In the games, whenever a Pokémon is first captured, its data will be added to a player's Pokédex, but in the anime or manga, the Pokédex is a comprehensive electronic reference encyclopedia, usually referred to in order to deliver exposition, "Pokédex" is also used to refer to a list of Pokémon, usually a list of Pokémon by number, In the video games, a Pokémon Trainer is issued a blank device at the st*rt of the journey, A trainer must then attempt to fill the Pokédex by encountering and at least briefly obtaining each of the different species of Pokémon, A player will receive the name and image of a Pokémon after encountering one that was not previously in the Pokédex, typically after battling said Pokémon either in the wild or in a trainer battle (with the exceptions of link battles and tournament battles, such as in the Battle Frontier), In Pokémon Red and Blue, some Pokémon's data is added to the Pokédex simply by viewing the Pokémon, such as in the zoo outside of the Safari Zone, Also, certain NPC characters may add to the Pokédex by explaining what a Pokémon looks like during conversation,
More detailed information is available after the player obtains a member of the species, either through capturing the Pokémon in the wild, evolving a previously captured Pokémon, hatching a Pokémon egg (from the second generation onwards), or through a trade with another trainer (either an NPC or another player), This information includes height, weight, species type, typing, and a short description of the Pokémon, Later versions of the Pokédex have more detailed information, like the size of a certain Pokémon compared to the player character, or Pokémon being sorted by their habitat (so far, the latter feature is only in the FireRed and LeafGreen versions), The most current forms of Pokédex are capable of containing information on all Pokémon currently known, The GameCube games, Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, have a Pokémon Digital Assistant (P★DA) which is similar to the Pokédex, but also tells what types are effective against a Pokémon and gives a description of its abilities,[38]
In other media[edit]

Anime series[edit]
Main article: Pokémon (anime)
The Pokémon anime series and films are a meta-series of adventures usually separate from the canon that most of the Pokémon video games follow (with the exception of Pokémon Yellow, a game based loosely on the anime storyline), The anime follows the quest of the main character, Ash Ketchum (known as Satoshi in Japan), a Pokémon Master in training, as he and a small group of friends travel around the world of Pokémon along with their Pokémon partners,[39]
The original series, titled Pocket Monsters, or simply Pokémon in Western countries (often referred to as Pokémon: Gotta Catch 'Em All to distinguish it from the later series), begins with Ash's first day as a Pokémon trainer, His first (and signature) Pokémon is a Pikachu, differing from the games, where only Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle could be chosen,[40] The series follows the storyline of the original games, Pokémon Red and Blue, in the region of Kanto, Accompanying Ash on his journeys are Brock, the Pewter City Gym Leader, and Misty, the youngest of the Gym Leader sisters from Cerulean City, Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands follows Ash's adventures in the Orange Islands, a place unique to the anime, and replaces Brock with Tracey Sketchit, an artist and "Pokémon watcher", The next series, based on the second generation of games, include Pokémon: Johto Journeys, Pokémon: Johto League Champions, and Pokémon: Master Quest, following the original trio of Ash, Brock, and Misty in the western Johto region,
The saga continues in Pokémon: Advanced, based on the third generation games, Ash and company travel to Hoenn, a southern region in the Pokémon World, Ash takes on the role of a teacher and mentor for a novice Pokémon trainer named May, Her brother Max accompanies them, and though he isn't a trainer, he knows large amounts of handy information, Brock (from the original series) soon catches up with Ash, but Misty has returned to Cerulean City to tend to her duties as a gym leader (Misty, along with other recurring characters, appears in the spin-off series Pokémon Chronicles), The Advanced series concludes with the Battle Frontier saga, based on the Emerald version and including aspects of FireRed and LeafGreen, It ended with Max leaving to pick his st*rter Pokémon and May going to the Grand Festival in Johto,
In the Diamond and Pearl series, based on the fourth generation games, Ash, Brock, and a new companion, an aspiring Pokémon coordinator named Dawn, travel through the region of Sinnoh, At the end of the series, Ash and Brock return to Kanto where Brock begins to follow his newfound dream of becoming a Pokémon doctor himself,
Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes!, based on the fifth generation games, features Ash and Pikachu traveling through the region of Unova (Isshu in Japan) alongside two new companions, Iris and Cilan (Dent in Japan) who part ways with them after returning to Kanto,
Pocket Monsters: XY (ポケットモンスターXY Poketo Monsutā Ekkusu Wai), is the current airing series based on the sixth generation games, following Ash and Pikachu's journey through the region of Kalos, accompanied by Ash's childhood friend Serena and the siblings Clemont and Bonnie,[41][42][43]
In addition to the TV series, nineteen Pokémon films have been made, with the pair of films, Pokémon the Movie: Black—Victini and Reshiram and White—Victini and Zekrom considered together as one, A twentieth is also in production, Collectible bonuses, such as promotional trading cards, have been available with some of the films, Various children's books, collectively known as Pokémon Junior, are also based on the anime,[44]

Monopoly[edit]
A Monopoly board game was released in August 2014,[69]
Criticism and controversy[edit]
Morality and religious beliefs[edit]
Pokémon has been criticized by some Christians over perceived occult and violent themes and the concept of "Pokémon evolution", which they feel goes against the Biblical creation account in Genesis,[70] However, Sat2000, a satellite television station based in Vatican City, has countered that the Pokémon Trading Card Game and video games are "full of inventive imagination" and have no "harmful moral side effects",[71][72] In the United Kingdom, the "Christian Power Cards" game was introduced in 1999 by David Tate who stated, "Some people aren't happy with Pokémon and want an alternative, others just want Christian games," The game was similar to the Pokémon Trading Card Game but used Biblical figures,[73]
In 1999, Nintendo stopped manufacturing the Japanese version of the "Koga's Ninja Trick" trading card because it depicted a manji, a traditionally Buddhist symbol with no negative connotations, The Jewish civil rights group Anti-Defamation League complained because the symbol is the reverse of a swastika, which is considered offensive to Jewish people, The cards were intended for sale in Japan only, but the popularity of Pokémon led to importation into the United States with approval from Nintendo, The Anti-Defamation League understood that the issue symbol was not intended to offend and acknowledged the sensitivity that Nintendo showed by removing the product,[74]
In 1999, two nine-year-old boys from Merrick, New York sued Nintendo because they claimed the Pokémon Trading Card Game caused their problematic gambling,[75]
In 2001, Saudi Arabia banned Pokémon games and cards, alleging that the franchise promoted Zionism by displaying the st*r of David in the trading cards (a six-pointed st*r is featured in the card game) as well as other religious symbols such as crosses they associated with Christianity and triangles they associated with Freemasonry; the games also involved gambling, which is in violation of Muslim doctrine,[76][77]
Pokémon has also been accused of promoting materialism,[78]
Animal cruelty[edit]
In 2012, PETA publicly criticized the concept of Pokémon as supporting cruelty to animals, PETA compared the game's concept, of capturing animals and forcing them to fight, to cockfights, dog fighting rings and circuses, all events frequently criticized for cruelty to animals, PETA released a game spoofing Pokémon where the Pokémon battle their trainers to win their freedom,[79] PETA reaffirmed their objections in 2016 with the release of Pokémon Go, promoting the hashtag #GottaFreeThemAll,[80]
Health[edit]
Main article: Dennō Senshi Porygon
On December 16, 1997, more than 635 Japanese children were admitted to hospitals with epileptic seizures,[81] It was determined the seizures were caused by watching an episode of Pokémon "Dennō Senshi Porygon", (most commonly translated "Electric Soldier Porygon", season 1, episode 38); as a result, this episode has not been aired since, In this particular episode, there were bright explosions with rapidly alternating blue and red color patterns,[82] It was determined in subsequent research that these strobing light effects cause some individuals to have epileptic seizures, even if the person had no previous history of epilepsy,[83] This incident is a common focus of Pokémon-related parodies in other media, and was lampooned by the Simpsons episode "Thirty Minutes over Tokyo"[84] and the South Park episode "Chinpokomon",[85] among others,
Monster in My Pocket[edit]
In March 2000, Morrison Entertainment Group, a small toy developer based at Manhattan Beach, California, sued Nintendo over claims that Pokémon infringed on its own Monster in My Pocket characters, A judge ruled there was no infringement, so Morrison appealed the ruling, On February 4, 2003, the U,S, Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed the decision by the District Court to dismiss the suit,[86]
Pokémon Go[edit]
See also: Pokémon Go § Criticism and incidents
Within its first two days of release, Pokémon Go raised safety concerns among players, Multiple people also suffered minor injuries from falling while playing the game due to being distracted,[87]
Multiple police departments in various countries have issued warnings, some tongue-in-cheek, regarding inattentive driving, trespassing, and being targeted by criminals due to being unaware of one's surroundings,[88][89] People have suffered various injuries from accidents related to the game,[90][91][92][93] and Bosnian players have been warned to stay out of minefields left over from the 1990s Bosnian War,[94] On July 20, 2016, it was reported that an 18-year-old boy in Chiquimula, Guatemala was shot and killed while playing the game in the late evening hours,[95] This was the first reported death in connection with the app, The boy's 17-year-old cousin, who was accompanying the victim, was shot in the foot, Police speculated that the shooters used the game's GPS capability to find the two,[96]
Cultural influence[edit]

All Nippon Airways Boeing 747-400 in Pokémon livery, dubbed a Pokémon Jet,
Pokémon, being a globally popular franchise, has left a significant mark on today's pop culture, The Pokémon characters themselves have become pop culture icons; examples include two different Pikachu balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Pokémon Jets operated by All Nippon Airways, thousands of merchandise items, and a traveling theme park that was in Nagoya, Japan in 2005 and in Taipei in 2006, Pokémon also appeared on the cover of the U,S, magazine Time in 1999, The Comedy Central show Drawn Together has a character named Ling-Ling who is a direct parody of Pikachu,[97] Several other shows such as ReBoot, The Simpsons, South Park, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Robot Chicken, All Grown Up!, and Johnny Test have made references and spoofs of Pokémon, among other series, Pokémon was also featured on VH1's I Love the '90s: Part Deux, A live action show called Pokémon Live! toured the United States in late 2000, It was based on the popular Pokémon anime, but had some continuity errors relating to it, Jim Butcher cites Pokémon as one of the inspirations for the Codex Alera series of novels,
In November 2001, Nintendo opened a store called the Pokémon Center in New York, in New York's Rockefeller Center,[98] modeled after the two other Pokémon Center stores in Tokyo and Osaka and named after a staple of the videogame series; Pokémon Centers are fictional buildings where Trainers take their injured Pokémon to be healed after combat,[99] The store sold Pokémon merchandise on a total of two floors, with items ranging from collectible shirts to stuffed Pokémon plushies,[100] The store also featured a Pokémon Distributing Machine in which players would place their game to receive an egg of a Pokémon that was being given out at that time, The store also had tables that were open for players of the Pokémon Trading Card Game to duel each other or an employee, The store was closed and replaced by the Nintendo World Store on May 14, 2005,[101] Three Pokémon Center kiosks were put in malls in Washington, with one in Tacoma and one in Seattle currently remaining,[102][unreliable source?] The Pokémon Center online store was relaunched on August 6, 2014,[103]

Meitetsu 2200 series train Giratina & Shaymin
Joseph Jay Tobin theorizes that the success of the franchise was mainly due to the long list of names that could be learned by children and repeated in their peer groups, The rich fictional universe provided a lot of opportunities for discussion and demonstration of knowledge in front of their peers, In the French version Nintendo took care to translate the name of the creatures so that they reflected the French culture and language, In all cases the names of the creatures were linked to its characteristics, which converged with the children's belief that names have symbolic power, Children could pick their favourite Pokémon and affirm their individuality while at the same time affirming their conformance to the values of the group, and they could distinguish themselves from other kids by asserting what they liked and what they didn't like from every chapter, Pokémon gained popularity because it provided a sense of identity to a wide variety of children, and lost it quickly when many of those children found that the identity groups were too big and searched for identities that would distinguish them into smaller groups,[104]

Shinkansen E3 Series train in Pokémon livery
Pokémon's history has been marked at times by rivalry with the Digimon media franchise that debuted at a similar time, Described as "the other 'mon'" by IGN's Juan Castro, Digimon has not enjoyed Pokémon's level of international popularity or success, but has maintained a dedicated fanbase,[105] IGN's Lucas M, Thomas stated that Pokémon is Digimon's "constant competition and comparison", attributing the former's relative success to the simplicity of its evolution mechanic as opposed to Digivolution,[106] The two have been noted for conceptual and stylistic similarities by sources such as GameZone,[107] A debate among fans exists over which of the two franchises came first,[108] In actuality, the first Pokémon media, Pokémon Red and Green, were released initially on February 27, 1996;[109] whereas the Digimon virtual pet was released on June 26, 1997,
Fan community[edit]
While Pokémon's target demographic is young boys, early purchasers of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were in their 20's,[110] Many fans are adults who originally played the games as children and later returned to the series,
Bulbapedia, a wiki-based encyclopedia[111] associated with longtime fan site Bulbagarden,[112][113] is the "Internet's most detailed Pokémon database project",[114] Bulbapedia finally received a mobile makeover with the release of BulbaGo, the app for Bulbapedia, The app's developer, Jonathan Zarra, was the same that created the location based chat app GoChat for Pokémon Go, The Bulbapedia App was so successful that within 3 days of its release, it was acquired by Bulbapedia and turned into its official app,
A significant community around the Pokémon video games' metagame has existed for a long time, analyzing the best ways to use each Pokémon to their full potential in competitive battles, The most prolific competitive community is Smogon University, which has created a widely accepted tier-based battle system,[115]
In early 2014, an anonymous video streamer on Twitch launched Twitch Plays Pokémon, an experiment trying to crowdsource playing subsequent Pokémon games st*rting with Pokémon Red,[116][117]
A challenge called the Nuzlocke Challenge was created in order for older players of the series to enjoy Pokémon again, but with a twist, When a Pokémon faints it is considered "dead" and must be released or stored in the PC permanently,[118] If the player blacks out/whites out the game is considered over and the player must rest*rt,[119] The original idea only consisted of 2 to 3 rules that the community has since built upon, There are many fan made Pokémon games made that contains a game mode similar to the Nuzlocke Challenge, such as Pokémon Uranium,[120]
An online Pokémon game was created called Pokémon Showdown, in which players create a team and battle against other players around the world,[121]

Piplup rejecting food
Piplup is a light-blue penguin-like Pokémon, which is covered in thick down to insulate against the cold, It has a dark blue head with a primarily white face and a short, yellow beak, The dark blue feathers on its head extend down its back and around its neck, which causes it to appear to be wearing a cape, There are two white ovals on its chest and a small, light-blue marking resembles a crown above its beak, It has flipper-like arms and yellow feet with three toes each,
Piplup has a strong sense of self-pride, Because of its pride, it has a hard time accepting food from humans and bonding with its caretakers, It will even puff out its chest after it falls down, which it often does due to its poor walking abilities, However, it is a skilled swimmer that can dive for over ten minutes in order to hunt, It has also been shown to fly short distances in the anime, It lives along the seashore in colder climates,
