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."
