Humans in various age groups have been shown in all sources of Pokémon media, while infants have seldom been seen and very rarely appear in the {{pkmn|anime}}. The exact biological relationship between humans and Pokémon is unclear. According to [[Sinnoh Myths|legend]], Pokémon and people were originally the same species, diverging over time, reflecting the real-world common ancestry between humans and animals. Some humans possess abilities well beyond those thatof real-world humans, such as having {{tc|Psychic}} or [[Aura]] powers.
For comedic purposes, characters in the Pokémon world are often pictured with a greatly exaggerated ability to withstand physical trauma, such as being {{status|burned}} or falling great distances. The most common occurrence of humans being harmed without serious injury is the frequent electrical shocking of {{Ash}} and his nemesis, the [[Team Rocket trio]], who are blasted off over the horizon countless times in the early seasons of the {{pkmn|anime}} series. However, Pokémon can present a real threat to humans, which is why people need a [[Pokémon Trainer's license|license]] in order to [[Pokémon training|train]] Pokémon.
