About Pokémon

Pokémon are self-aware and surprisingly intelligent – much more so than ordinary animals. In fact, their intellect is estimated to be near or equal to that of humans. Although they can only communicate through animal-like cries, pokémon seem to pick up on human language with ease, understanding speech despite their inability to speak themselves. Their emotional capacity is also far beyond that of regular animals, and it is believed that they experience all the same feelings that humans do.

Nevertheless, pokémon living in the wild can be dangerous. They are often suspicious of humans and may act on instinct if they feel threatened. The seemingly magical – and often destructive – powers of pokémon caused early humans to fear them. But over time, it became clear that the best way to combat an enemy monster was with a monster of one’s own. Humans began to forge bonds with the creatures, and the age-old practice of pokémon training was born.

Before the invention of the pokéball, monsters were captured using apricorns. It was discovered that when the peculiar fruit’s insides were hollowed out, it could be used to capture and contain a monster. Modern pokéballs came into use in the late nineteenth century, which is when the creatures first became known as pocket monsters or “pokémon.” By the turn of the twentieth century, pokéballs were being mass produced.


The Eden Region

The Eden region is located in the Pacific Ocean, approximately halfway between Hawaii and Japan. The northern half of the island boasts a temperate climate, while the southern half lies in a semi-tropical zone. The northern reaches are known for the mist-laden Amaranth Forest, as well as the rugged highlands known as the Asphodel Meadows. The lush Plumeria Jungle dominates much of the south, where the climate is warmer. Forming a borderline between these vastly different areas, the heavily-wooded Ginkgo Mountains take up most of central Eden.

On most sides of the island there is no coastline; instead, the terrain cuts off abruptly in steep sea-cliffs or tapers into dense mangrove forests. The main points of access are the bay at Potpourri Harbor and the secluded inlet of Hibiscus Beach. A bustling port city, Potpourri Harbor is considered the gateway to Eden. It is one of the region’s largest cities, with only Ironwood City and Garland City surpassing it in size and population. These three main hubs are also home to airports.


The Pokégear

Recent years have seen huge strides in computer technology, and it’s only natural that some of these advancements would relate to pokémon training. Perhaps the most obvious example is the Pokégear. This electronic device has been around since the advent of cellular phones, but much like cell phones, its capabilities have grown by leaps and bounds over the past couple of decades. The modern Pokégear is a sleek-looking touch-screen device available in handheld or wristwatch form. While its primary functions are gauging pokémon power, logging training data, and serving as a Pokédex, it has countless other uses. It can be used to access the internet, navigate by GPS, hold voice and video calls, and much more.

Along with the Pokégear’s default programs, trainers can also download various add-ons. There are apps for training tips, trading posts, breeding prospects, rare pokémon sightings… And, of course, battling. The most popular battle-related app is “VS Seeker,” which matches trainers with opponents in their area. Trainers can narrow their options based on skill level or allow the app to select an opponent at random. Once a match is made, the two parties meet up at a predetermined public area and battle.
