Pokémon category

61 bytes removed, 01:07, 10 October 2019
* Several Pokémon have had their categories altered between generations. This is primarily due to character limitations in earlier Pokémon games. {{p|Squirtle}}, as an example, was originally the "<sc>TinyTurtle</sc> Pokémon". It was later listed as the "<sc>Tiny Turtle</sc> Pokémon".
* The categories present in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} are cut off in early English releases of the games, most specifically those made up of more than one word with a space in between. This causes Pokémon like Pidgey to be listed as "Tiny Pokémon" rather than "Tiny Bird Pokémon". [[Pokédex data structure in Generation III|Internal game data]] lists the category the same as it appears in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} and other games, indicating a glitch in the Pokédex where a blank space is confused for the terminating byte for the name. This was addressed in later releases of the game.
* {{p|Hoopa}} is the only Pokémon with multiple categories.
* The previous term, "species", should not be confused with a [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon species]], since several different Pokémon can be identified by the same category in the Pokédex, no matter how distantly related. This term should also not be confused with the real world definition of {{wp|species}}.
* Eight species of Pokémon are known as the Dragon Pokémon, making it the category with the most Pokémon species.
