:''This article is about Pokémon, also known as Pocket Monsters, as a species. For other uses of the words, see [[Pokémon (disambiguation)]]''.
'''Pokémon''' (Japanese: '''ポケットモンスター''' ''Pocket Monsters''; '''ポケモン''' ''Pokémon'' for short) are {{numpkmn}} known species of creatures that inhabit the [[Pokémon world]], however, it is implied that there are more [[Future generations of Pokémon|waiting to be discovered]]. Inherent to them are several fantastic powers not demonstrated by most real animals, such as the manipulation of {{t|electric}}ity or {{t|fire}}. Pokémon are shown to exist instead of animals in their world, although animals are also seldom seen in older media. While most Pokémon resemble animals and may behave like them, there are many that do not resemble animals at all; taking on other forms such as plants, inanimate objects, machines, human-like forms or other more enigmatic and exotic appearances. Pokémon inhabit an extremely diverse range of habitats, ranging from the driest deserts to the lushest jungles, the deepest oceans to the highest mountains and everything else in-between, even [[Extraterrestrial Pokémon|space]] and other [[dimensions]]. Pokémon take up various ways of living in those places. However, all can be befriended and made into potential allies.
