While there are no strict rules that make a game a core series game, and previously assumed rules are continuously broken, the games generally have a similar plot and {{cat|Game mechanics|mechanics}}.
The {{player}} begins the game in a small town or city of a given [[region]], having no {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} of their own. Through a course of events, the player will receive a [[starter Pokémon]] from the region's [[Pokémon Professor]]; the starter Pokémon is always a choice of three, a {{t|Grass}}, {{t|Fire}}, or {{t|Water}} type, and the character who will become the player's [[rival]] will typically choose (or already have) the Pokémon whose [[type]] is [[super effective]] against that of the player's choice, although some exceptions to this pattern exist.
