The main purpose of the song was to [[List of Pokémon|list all the known Pokémon]] of a specific generation. It usually rhymes, as heard in the [[Kanto Pokérap|original Pokérap]] which had many Pokémon names that rhymed, but no rhymes were made in the [[Pokérap GS|next one]] as there was a limit on names that rhymed and Pokémon. The third [[Hoenn Pokérap|Pokérap]] had rhymes, but didn't rhyme any Pokémon, instead rhyming normal words together, or with the Pokémon's name.
Usually, the evolutionary families would be jumbled up, and sung in different lines or verse. In later raps, such as the Hoenn Pokérap, this rule was not followed; the {{p|Lotad}} evolution family was sung together.
There are currently three Pokérap songs, one for each of the first three generations. Pokéraps have yet to be announced for the [[Generation IV|fourth]] and [[Generation V|fifth generations]] of the Pokémon anime, but are widely anticipated by fans.
