==In the spin-off games==
===Play It! series===
In [[Pokémon Play It!]] and [[Pokémon Play It! Version 2]], it is possible to play the {{pkmn|Trading Card Game}} rather than train Pokémon. However, at some point {{OBP|Julie|Play It!}} sees a {{p|Beedrill}} flying off-camera and its [[cry]] is heard, which is an indication that actual Pokémon exist in this universe. This happens in<ref>From the lesson "What's a Pokémon?", quizfound in both games[[Pokémon Play It!]] and [[Pokémon Play It! Version 2]].</ref>
==In the anime==
The guidebook ''[[Pocket Monsters: The Animation]]'' gave a bit more detail on the Pokémon. Specifically, they were rumored to have been created by God on {{wp|Book of Genesis|the seventh day of creation}} as "doodles", and since they were created on holiday, they were commanded to neither rule over nor be ruled by humanity. It also inferred that they had some relation to merpeople and dragon myths, and that their species was discovered by a French nobleman named Count Tajirin (a subtle reference to franchise creator [[Satoshi Tajiri]]) during the 18th century.
