Evolution and Eevee: new section
Should we add a list of the biggest cities in Pokémon world? [[User:Ariano|Ariano]] 17:10, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
:I personally don't think it's very notable, in the games articles it is already stated. And since this is overarching and not just the games, manga, anime, everything. So I don't think it would be a good idea. --[[User:Spriteit|Spriteit]] 23:48, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
== A change between games ==
Is it just the Japanese-to-English translations, or something else, that makes the "Pokemon World" of Generations I and II-V so different? In Generation I, a lot of real-world places were mentioned (example being the mention of China in a Pokedex entry, and South America in Pokemon Mansion journals). Mew was credited as being the ancestor of Pokemon, there were few legendaries, and there were many mentions of Pokemon as originating from extra-terrestrial sources. To me, it all seemed like a scientific sort of world. But in Generation II and onward, it turned increasingly into a world dominated, as well as created, by little 'gods' (you can hardly throw a stick now without hitting a legendary, and the number increases with each generation). I disliked this change, and I wonder what brought it about (it's odd considering the game was created by a man's love for bug-collecting).
My point is, perhaps this odd change could be given a sort of technical mention? Unless this article is more focused on 'playing the game' (as Sherlockians call it), pretending that the game is 'real' in a sense and must be consistent throughout, paving over inconsistencies with excuses and theories... I'm no "later-gen" basher, because so far I really like Black and White. I just think it's a notable shift in the series. It may even be something to turn some 'nostalgia' players off.

: It could be. I don't know what other users think about this but to me there are three canons that are different from others and may not be the same: games make up their own world, anime and mangas have their own, different worlds as they all are made by different companies and people and differ so much. Actually one could say that Pokemon world(s) is( or are) a paraller universe(s) to our own or other Pokemon worlds, as there are Andies and so on. The regions like Johto and Sinnoh could be the Kansai region and Hokkaido in a different universe(s). Plus it should be noted that as being the first, Gen I was different in many ways. Usually people don't know what direction they are taking the games or other things which is what I believe was the case with Game Freak. They backfilled their consepts in Gen II and onwards.

== pokemon as food ==
Perhaps worthy of mention, I recall there having been both ham and sausage in the anime, most likely made of Pokemon, since there's not many animals running around--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 12:00, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
:Actually, at least in the Original series, there WERE animals. Besides, the Pokedex names for various Pokémon had to imply animals existed to some degree, and based on the implications of various Pokémon games, killing Pokémon is looked down upon.

== Alternate versions ==
I'd like to note the existance of alternate versions of it, shown by the mentions of each other as alternate worlds in Black/Black 2 and White/White 2, what Zinnia says in the Delta episode and what Archie/Maxie says about them reawakening Kyogre/Groudon in another world, but I can't work out where it goes. Can anyone help? [[User:PartHunter|PartHunter]] ([[User talk:PartHunter|talk]]) 11:18, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
:I agree that adding a section about the multiverse would be good. As obvious as this may seem, I would suggest placing this section at the end of the article after Physics and Technology, because that is what it is most closely related to. You could also place it as a subcategory, since multiverse theory is technically physics and the ORAS link cable was a large, new piece of technology.

== Evolution and Eevee ==
In the Evolution section, it states that Burmy is the closest thing Pokemon has to actual evolution. I'm assuming the reference used is Burmy's HGSS Pokédex entry: ''"It covers itself with a cloak to shelter from the cold. When it's hot, its cloak is thinner."'' While I do understand this reasoning, what about [[Eevee]]? Here's its Gold entry: ''"It has the ability to alter the composition of its body to suit its surrounding environment."'' In my opinion, this is a better example of real-life evolution because Eevee changes its entire biology while Burmy only changes its cloak, which actually is not even part of its body at all.
