I just realized another one: how do nightmares hurt you?
Maybe like confusion? The Pokemon struggles and hurts it self. Along those lines, you can wonder how Curse hurts you.

Pretty much...everything, really.
Yes, I know that's just how it is but the OP asked for it.

That, as people have said, you can capture Arceus who at the moment is basically God.

That the fate of an entire region always falls on the shoulders of a 10 year old. (Though I think the player is older in Black and White)

A lot of the Pokédex entries are kinda...eyebrow-raising.

POKEMON IN A NUTSHELL

A Japanese man's inner demons (which are creatures with the powers of the elements, some of whom are considered gods) are caught in technology borrowed from Ultraman and kept like bugs.

Makes perfect sense!

The energy given off changes the molecular composition of the Pokemon. This is especially evident for Eevee, as it's molecular structure is very weak and prone to change. The Pokemon must have different molecules than humans if they can be hit by the energy and not be mutated in a bad way.

So how do you explain Umbreon and Espeon?
