It's a TV series, video game and trading card game. Pokemon were introduced by the video game company Nintendo after their invention by Satoshi Tajiri around 1995. The games involve fictional creatures who have various super-powers and abilities.

AnswerPokemon are fictional creatures in another universe that are captured (using a Pokeball of some sort) and raised by humans to battle and protect them. Each Pokemon has a different ability and type (Electric, ,Water,grass,fire, etc.) and there are over 600 species (Raichu, Jirachi, Charizard, Mew, etc.). Some people use Pokemon to battle while others care for them as pets. A person who uses Pokemon to battle is often refered to as a Pokemon trainer, as Pokemon are creatures which can also grow (in levels), evolve (change form to become stronger) and develop in skills (which transfers to their types of attack).

Many things have come from the creation of Pokemon - including a trading card game, an anime television series and many Video Games. These have all been very successful and have made Pokemon popular all over the world.

The original idea for the Pokemon game came from a young man (Satoshi Tajiri) who wanted to invent a game that involved trading insects - as was his hobby.

AnswerPokemon is a game that is made up. Pokemon stands for "pocket monsters"! So when you play Pokemon, you have your Pokemon in a Pokeball so you can put them in your pocket!

They have abilities like Water, Fire, Grass, Steel, Ice and so on. You can train, trade, and battle with them, or capture wild ones.

As of 2009, there were 493 Pokemon of various types. Bulbasaur (no.1) is the first Pokemon on the Pokedex index, and Arceus (no 493) is the last (not recognized until he appeared in a movie in February, 2009. The official site showed only the first 491.)

Since 2010, there have been 649 Pokemon in total.
