Five not Four
Before the release of Generations II, III, IV, and V, new Pokémon have been used to promote the new games through the anime. {{p|Ho-Oh}}, {{p|Togepi}}, {{p|Marill}}, {{p|Kecleon}}, {{p|Blaziken}}, {{p|Munchlax}}, {{p|Lucario}}, {{p|Manaphy}}, {{p|Zoroark}} and {{p|Zorua}} are a few of the Pokémon that debuted before their generation.
The first fourfive generations have introduced some stock characters. Two [[player character]] options (one male, one female) live in a small town with their [[mom|mother]]. A previously unknown Pokémon professor, named for a type of tree, will set the player's journey in motion. Eight [[Gym Leader]]s stand in the player's way to the [[Elite Four]], as does the player's [[rival]](s).
Many other characters will exist in various manners: [[non-player character]]s to aid the player, [[Pokémon Trainer]]s to defeat on the road, a [[villainous team]], and perhaps familiar faces.
