Monsters that live alongside humans and animals in the fictional world within the Pokémon franchise. Humans can capture these "pocket monsters" in high-tech devices that convert their matter into energy and store it. They are based on Japanese yokai, monsters that live disguised among humans, which is why many Pokémon look like inanimate objects. Satoshi Taijiri, first created the concept which was inspired by his childhood hobby of bug-catching.
Fan: "When you really think about it, Pokémon (species) are awesome. They're like a portable army of monsters."

Critic: "You're a dumbass."

Fan: "If playing a game that let's me carry Godzilla in my pocket makes me a dumbass then I'm one stupid motherfucker."

1. A joke religion created by hardcore fans of the Pokémon franchise. Some fans claim to "follow" this religion to identify themselves with other "believers".

2. The moniker used by less fanatic players of the Pokémon franchise to refer to the in-game mythology, sparse as it is, that references the "Original One" aka Arceus.
1. "Hey Mike, are you a follower of Arceusism?"

"Definently, Arceus forever!"

"Amen to that,"

2. In the Canalave library in the Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum versions, there is a book on the third floor that tells of how the Original One emerges from an egg and creates the beings of time and space as well as the beings that gave life knowledge, emotion, and willpower. He then goes to eternal sleep.

In Platinum there is an event Arceus that allows the player to hear more of this legend as he/she discovers Plates, which Arceus uses to change type with its ability.
