==In the anime==
In the anime, Pokémon are shown to be creatures with distinctively more anthropomorphic qualities than normal animals, with several even [[talking Pokémon|able to speak]]. Some Pokémon have the ability to speak the dubbing language instead of their own names, such as {{MTR}} of {{TRT}}. They also seem to be able to mostly understand [[human]] language, while most humans can't understand Pokémon speak, although there are a few who claim they can. Most species speak only one word: their own name, e.g. Pikachu saying "Pika! Pikachu!" and so forth.
 
The anime takes a clear stance of right and wrong on the use of Pokémon: Trainers such as {{Ash}} are shown to treat their Pokémon with respect, as partners and friends, while evil organizations like [[Team Rocket]] are shown to use Pokémon as mere tools, keeping them in cages, making them fight to exhaustion—a stark contrast to Ash and his {{AP|Pikachu}}, who he treats as his best friend and keeps on his shoulder, rather than in a [[Poké Ball]], because of its own preference.
