Because some people tend to get lucky and crit every move, that's a way to make sure that doesn't happen

Nah, they're harmless sugar pills; it's the placebo effect at work, making the Pokémon stronger because they think it will make them stronger.

Spiritomb is formed from those very people; after you've ... "talked" ... to them, their souls depart to join the many other unfortunates you've run into, congregating in the Hallowed Tower to await their chance to get their revenge on you for ending their earthly lives once their numbers are great enough.

Depends on wind speed, really. If the wind speed is high the Sudowoodo have a tendency to fly out of the Timburr's grasp.

The Pokémon world is post-apocolyptic. People live where they can, even if their cities are practically inaccessible due to the monsters in the surrounding areas, because it's the only way the human race can continue to survive.

Why is it that when kids in the Pokémon world turn ten years old they are considered legally adults?
