Pokemon has 493 (as of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl) distinctive fictional species classified as the titular Pokemon. These creatures and entities reside throughout various locations of the fictional Pokemon universe and can be caught by humans designated as Pokemon Trainers often using devices called Poke Balls. These trainers use Pokemon for a variety of purposes, such as being pets and loyal companions and/or being pitted against other trained Pokemon in competitive Pokemon battles. Pokemon are potentially super-powered creatures that can employ a variety of talents such as generating fire or heat, martial arts, telekinesis, and so on. Through age and experience many of these species undergo a metamorphosis and transform into a similar but stronger species in a process referred to as Pokemon evolution. This is a selected listing of thirty-one of the Pokemon species, arranged as they are in the main game series' National Pokedex.
