The term psychokinesis (from the Greek ψυχή, "psyche" meaning mind soul heart or breath; and κίνησις, "kinesis" Through age and experience many of these species undergo a metamorphosis and transform into a similar but stronger specie in a process referred to as Pokémon evolution.
This is a selected listing of twenty of the Pokémon species, arranged as they are in the main game series' National Pokédex.
|Number: 081||Type: Electric/Steel||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Magneton|
Magnemite (コイル Koiru?, Coil in original Japanese language versions) is almost more of a machine than a creature, as it is a solid ball of metal with a pair of horseshoe magnets on either side, as well as a single, lidless eye. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities It has a pair of screws protruding from below the eye, and a large screw forming a sort of "cap" on top of its head.
It floats through the air, through a sort of electromagnetic antigravity field generated by the two magnets on either side of its body. Anti-gravity is the idea of creating a place or object that is free from the force of Gravity. When defending itself in the wild or fighting in a Pokémon battle at the orders of a Pokémon trainer, it can also generate powerful electric shocks. In the Pokémon franchise a is a person who captures wild Pokémon with Poké Balls raises them and trains them to battle other trainers' Pokémon Magnemite consumes electricity, so they're attracted to power lines and electronic gadgets. Magnemite tend to crowd around generators and power plants, and an individual Magnemite might be attracted to someone with a pocket radio or a Pokégear.
Despite their mechanical appearance, lack of gender, and alien tendencies, Magnemite are living things; they are not built, they feel the need to eat, and they have something similar to a mating urge. A trio of Magnemite may come together to create their evolved form, Magneton.
|Number: 082||Type: Electric/Steel||Evolves from: Magnemite||Evolves into: Magnezone|
Magneton (レアコイル Reakoiru?, Rarecoil in original Japanese language versions) is composed of 3 Magnemite linked together by a strong magnetic force. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities  It levitates on an electromagnetic anti-gravity field like its pre-evolution, Magnemite. Its electromagnetic powers are so strong that it has been known to cause total blackouts in cities in which it gathers.

Farfetch'd (カモネギ Kamonegi?) is a duck-like Pokémon with brown plumage, and carries a negi (resembling a leek, and referred to as such in English) at all times in order to defend itself. The leek, Allium ampeloprasum var porrum (L also sometimes known as Allium porrum, is a vegetable which belongs along with the Onion and This item is referred to as the "Stick" in the video games, and increases Farfetch'd's critical hit ratio.
The story behind Farfetch'd is that of the legend of a duck, who fetches a green onion for a person, only to bring it back to be cooked with the leek himself. The Japanese name is a further play on this; "Kamonegi" is a portmanteau of 鴨 kamo (wild duck, but can also mean a gullible person) and 葱 negi. In fact, this occurs in the Pokémon world as well.
When Farfetch'd looks for a new onion stick, it goes off to a spot where such a stick grows, and it will fight off and discourage any Pokémon that approaches the spot until the stick is ripe for picking. It has been demonstrated that some of these sticks are considered better than others, for other Farfetch'd fight with it over certain sticks in the area. With the stick in its finger-like wing quills, Farfetch'd uses the stick as its primary weapon against opponents by swinging it as if it were a sword, cutting through all sorts of things. The stick is even used for building its nest, suggesting that its nest is made mostly of these vegetables.
|Number: 084||Type: Normal/Flying||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Dodrio|
Doduo (ドードー Dōdō?) resembles an ostrich or a roadrunner, with sharper beaks and an extra head. The Ostrich ( Struthio camelus) is a large Flightless bird native to Africa (and formerly the Middle East) The roadrunners are two species of Bird in the genus Geococcyx of the Cuckoo family Cuculidae native to North and It may also be based on the kiwi. KIWI (1029 FM, "Radio Lobo" is a commercial Radio station located in McFarland California, broadcasting to the Bakersfield California Its name is a portmanteau of the words dodo, the extinct flightless bird, and duo, in reference to its two heads. Doduo's tracks are huge and very distinctive. It inhabits and races across grass-covered plains at 60 mph. It is well-adapted to dry and arid climates. Doduo's second head is said to have been formed by a sudden mutation thousands of years ago. Both heads normally contain identical brains, although rare cases have been observed where a Doduo has two distinctly different brains.
Interestingly, Doduo can be caught in the wild in all of the Pokémon video games. Doduo can also be found in Pokémon Snap. is a video game developed by HAL Laboratory with Pax Softnica and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.
In the Pokémon anime episode "Bad to the Bone," Jessie of Team Rocket battles a Doduo with her Arbok. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, The battle is interrupted when the Doduo's heads begin to fight with each other.
|Number: 085||Type: Normal/Flying||Evolves from: Doduo||Evolves into: None|
Dodrio (ドードリオ Dōdorio?) is a flightless bird Pokémon with long, powerful legs. Dodrio resembles an ostrich, and its movement is reminiscent of the roadrunner. The Ostrich ( Struthio camelus) is a large Flightless bird native to Africa (and formerly the Middle East) The roadrunners are two species of Bird in the genus Geococcyx of the Cuckoo family Cuculidae native to North and Its name is a portmanteau of the words dodo, the extinct flightless bird, and trio, in reference to its three heads. The dodo ( Raphus cucullatus) was a Flightless bird endemic to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.
As the evolved form of the two-headed Doduo, Dodrio has three heads, the third head which is said to be formed by one of Doduo's heads splitting during evolution. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, Each one of the heads constantly expresses a different emotion: joy, sadness, and anger. Having three heads allows Dodrio to collect more information from its surroundings, develop complex plans, and remain alert at all times by keeping watch in three different directions. On the other hand, a Dodrio's three heads are commonly known to squabble amongst themselves, probably due to each one having a different attitude. Though Dodrio struggles to fly, it has three sets of hearts and lungs to match its heads, granting it extraordinary stamina while running at high speed. Like its pre-evolution Doduo, it inhabits dry, grassy plains.
In the video games, Dodrio are often used by Bird Keepers and Triathletes practicing in running. In Pokémon Ranger, a Dodrio is the partner of the Fall City Ranger Leader Joel. This article is about the video game for the movie see Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. Dodrio also features in the Pokémon Stadium games as Dodrio Mode, which speeds up the games' GameBoy emulator, and in FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald in the mini-game Dodrio Berry-Picking. Pokemon Stadium, or in Japan is an RPG -styled Strategy game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the
In the Pokémon anime, Dodrio first appeared on the morning of the first episode, crowing in place of a rooster. A rooster (also called a cock or chanticleer) is a male Chicken ( Gallus gallus) the female being called a Hen. Dario used one in the episode "The Flame Pokémon-athon," and Violet City Gym Leader Falkner battled Ash's Pikachu with one. Below is a list of Gym Leaders from the Johto region in the Fictional Pokémon series of video games, anime, and manga. Gary Oak also evolved his Doduo into a Dodrio.
|Number: 086||Type: Water||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Dewgong|
Seel (パウワウ Pauwau?, Pawou in original Japanese language versions) are well suited to life in the most frigid reaches of the planet. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities They are nocturnal; in the daytime they are seen asleep on the seabed in shallow water. "Ocean Floor" redirects here For the 2001 song by Audio Adrenaline, see Lift (Audio Adrenaline album. When hunting, Seel stay in the ocean because they cannot walk on land. Instead, they swim in a rather graceful fashion literally underneath sheets of ice floating on the water’s surface in their environment in search of their prey. Even though the air is a frigid 14 degrees Fahrenheit and the water itself is a somewhat less chilling 40 degrees, their fur hides are thick enough to insulate Seel from either degree of cold and their nostrils automatically close by themselves to ensure their ability to remain underwater. Fahrenheit is a temperature scale named after Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736 a German Physicist who proposed it in 1724 When they need to take in air, they will use their hard horns to punch holes through the ice sheet above and pop their heads out.

Dewgong (ジュゴン Jugon?) is one of 493 fictional species from the Pokémon franchise. If you came here to express your personal opinion about Pokémon please go somewhere else Its name is derived from the real animal which has a similar, but much larger, body: the dugong. The dugong ( Dugong dugon) is a large Marine Mammal which together with the Manatees is one of four living species of the order Sirenia In the beta versions of Red/Blue, Dewgong's name was originally going to be Manaty, a reference to the manatee. Manatees ( family Trichechidae, Genus Trichechus) are large fully aquatic Marine mammals sometimes known as sea The Pokémon first appears in the arsenal of a trainer named "Allison" outside of Saffron City, who cites her similar body fat percentage as a reason for her choosing to utilize the Water/Ice type Pokémon. An animal's total body fat percentage is the total weight of the animal's fat divided by the animal's weight and reflects both essential fat and storage fat 
|Number: 088||Type: Poison||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Muk|
Grimer (ベトベター Betobetā?, Betbeter in original Japanese language versions) is composed primarily of putrid, hardened sludge and grime. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities It smells incredibly foul, and can influence the abandonment of entire cities due to its polluting nature--even weeds don't grow where a Grimer has appeared. Grimer thrives in filthy areas, such as factories, garbage dumps, sewers and polluted water systems. It survives and matures by sucking up polluted sludge that is pumped out of factories, adding toxic waste to its already toxic girth. It enters sewers and other areas with great ease due to its rubbery and semi-viscous body; for example, it can enter barred-off areas by slipping between the narrow bars. Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a Fluid which is being deformed by either Shear stress or Extensional stress. If you stick your hand in Grimer, it will be very hard to get it out.

Muk (ベトベトン Betobeton?, Betbeton in original Japanese language versions) is a living manifestation of sludge and waste. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities Muk thrives in toxic waste and garbage. It inhabits any polluted area; including abandoned factories, garbage dumps and sewers. It is said that its smell is comparable to that of reeking kitchen garbage, especially during hot summers. Muk itself is also a source of pollution. As Muk slides across the ground, it leaves behind a trail of highly poisonous sludge. Muk and Grimer are known for traveling into water and polluting it and killing plants with their sludge. Muk could be considered antagonistic of Suicune, a Pokémon with the ability to purify dirty or polluted water. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, It can also be considered antagonistic of Celebi, which can bring dead plants back to life.
In the anime, Ash and friends encounter a horde of Grimer, which is lead by a Muk. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, After a group of Magnemits and Magnetons save them, Ash captures the Muk. When Ash first caught Muk, its smell was able to escape the Poké Ball, much to everyone's displeasure. For this reason, Muk was given to Professor Oak. A running gag in the series involves Muk and his overly affectionate personality. He constantly expressing gratitude towards Professor Oak by hugging him, and in the process smothering him with its gooey body, he also started to do this with Professor Birch.

Shellder (シェルダー Sherudā?) is a cheeky Pokémon; it constantly pokes its tongue out at anybody, whether friend or foe. It will also spit on foes. This tends to antagonize enemies into a rage. Its shell is very strong, apparently harder than a diamond, though only made of a single, smooth layer. In Mineralogy, diamond is the allotrope of carbon where the carbon atoms are arranged in Shellder becomes vulnerable when the enemy can attack its insides. When not protecting itself in battle, it will attack by squirting water at the foe. As a last resort, it will clamp the foe with its powerful shell. However, this leaves Shellder vulnerable to an attack, hence, it is rarely used. As a total last resort, Shellder may use Selfdestruct or Explosion to knock itself and the enemy out. Shellder travels by rapidly opening and closing its shell, propelling it in the opposite direction of its shell through the water. Shellder are incapable of travel on land, unless in a Poké Ball.
Shellder is integral to the evolution of Slowpoke as is the body part of Slowpoke to which Shellder bites on: its tail. Once Shellder bites the Slowpoke's tail, the two will evolve into a single Pokémon, Slowbro. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series If Shellder instead attaches itself to Slowpoke's head, it will create Slowking, a notably smarter Pokémon than the other two. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, This evolution can be reversed if Shellder falls off Slowbro's tail or Slowking's head. The evolution benefits both Pokémon: Slowpoke can now walk on its hind legs and Shellder can both eat the scraps of the Slowpoke, and finally move on land. The newly attached Shellder looks very different from its previous purple form.

Cloyster (パルシェン Parushen?, Parshen in original Japanese language versions) are bivalve Pokémon, guarded by an extremely strong, multi-layered shell. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities Bivalves are Molluscs belonging to the class Bivalvia. They have two-part shells and typically both valves are symmetrical along the hinge line This shells cannot be opened even by those with superior strength, and they cannot be damaged even by a bomb. Nobody has seen their dark innards, which are Cloyster's weak spot as they are very soft and vulnerable. They launch thick, powerful spikes at enemies in battle, as well as to capture prey. These spikes are even stronger than their shell. Cloyster can also crush prey by clamping their thick shell shut onto them. When being attacked, they simply shut their shells to avoid further damage. To travel through water, they swim by swallowing water and jetting it out opposite to the direction they want to move.

Gastly (ゴース Gōsu?, Ghos in original Japanese language versions) Spirit in the Beta versions of the English language versions of Pokémon Red and Blue is made of a very thin, gas-like substance, which grants it certain powers and weaknesses. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities A software release is the distribution whether public or private of an initial or new and upgraded version of a Computer software product English is a West Germanic language originating in England and is the First language for most people in the United Kingdom, the United States and, released in Japan as Pocket Monster Red and, are the first two installments of the Pokémon series of role-playing Video games Some say it is an other-dimensional lifeform, while others believe it is formed from toxic gas. It can sneak into any place if it so wishes thanks to the invasive properties of gas molecules. It can render itself nearly invisible and approach enemies undetected, and can envelop said enemies regardless of their size and induce sleepiness, slow poisoning through the skin, or even suffocation.
On the other hand, Gastly's negligible weight and gaseous nature make it very easy for it to be blown off or even scattered to nothingness under a strong wind (although it is presumed the molecules can regroup later). A Gastly will not appear in windy weather if it can help it, but when it finds itself threatened by a strong wind, it clusters in groups under the eaves of houses to protect itself.

Gengar (ゲンガー Gengā?) often has a rather sinister personality, especially when in the wild. It inhabits remote mountainous locations and urban environments alike, being a dangerous Pokémon to encounter in either case. Fortunately, Gengar is a nocturnal Pokémon, so its attacks are limited to the hours of darkness. As an Animal behavior, nocturnality describes sleeping during the Daytime and being active at Night - the opposite of the diurnal
Gengar tends to stalking its prospective prey, which includes human beings, and hide in their shadow. ---- Stalking is the obsessive following observing or contacting of another person or the obsessive attempt to engage in any of these activities A shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object It is said that in this way, it has the opportunity to absorb the "vital force"/life of its victims. Gengar acts like a heat sink while doing this, so that its malevolent presence can be given away by a feeling of cold and a shivering sensation. A heat sink (or heatsink) is an environment or object that absorbs and dissipates heat from another object using Thermal contact (either direct or radiant
Another favorite pastime of Gengar is to mimic the shadows of people. A common prank is to take the shape of one's shadow and run past him, giving him the impression that his shadow has come alive and overtaken him. Gengar especially loves to frighten people that way during the nights of a full moon. Full moon is a Lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. Gengar's eyes can glow in the dark.

At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series Within Onyx's member is a structure nigh identical to a magnet, which allows it to determine its heading, its depth underground, and other such information useful for a subterranean Pokémon to know. A limb (from the Old English lim) is a jointed or Prehensile (as Octopus tentacles or new world Monkey tails Appendage of the It acts quite like a compass. As Onyx ages, it burrows deeper underground, and its rocky member becomes progressively harder, rounder, and smoother. Around the age of 100, the pressures exerted on its stone member become so high that it is compressed into a much harder, diamond-like composition, although it is closer to metal in nature.
In the anime, an Onix is owned by Brock as part of the many Pokemon owned by the training gym that Brock's family runs. Brock had initially received the Onix from his father, who is a specialist in rock-type Pokemon. When Brock feels the need to travel with Ash Ketchum yet again, he entrusts the care of the Onix to one of his many younger brothers. Ash Ketchum, known as in Japan, is a Fictional character and the main Protagonist from the ''Pokémon'' anime. This takes place in Pokémon Chronicles. It eventually evolves into a Steelix.

Drowzee eats dreams; in order to eat, it must put its prey to sleep. A nightmare or night terror will give it indigestion, and it prefers the dreams of human children to those of adults or other pokémon. A nightmare is a Dream which causes a strong unpleasant emotional response from the sleeper typically fear or horror being in situations of extreme danger or the sensations A night terror, also known as pavor nocturnus, is a Parasomnia disorder characterized by extreme terror and a temporary inability to regain full consciousness If you came here to express your personal opinion about Pokémon please go somewhere else It's psychic, but it has limited abilities, compared to other Pokémon; it does not display telekinesis, for example.

Eating the dreams of its foes is another sinister ability of Hypno. However, stomach pains will ail Hypno if it eats a nightmare. A nightmare is a Dream which causes a strong unpleasant emotional response from the sleeper typically fear or horror being in situations of extreme danger or the sensations At dusk, some Hypno will appear near schools and less-traveled roads. This may be to scare children and travelers at night and hypnotize them. In fact, there was once an incident where Hypno hypnotized and kidnapped a child.
It is possible that Hypno never sleeps, as evident by its Insomnia ability. Instead of sleeping, it probably energizes itself with meditation and by eating the dreams of those it puts to sleep. Hypno's menacing and semi-parted eyelids look sleep deprived.

Krabby (クラブ Kurabu?, Crab in original Japanese language versions) is a crab with large pincers. is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities Krabby is an omnivore and a scavenger; it rarely hunts for itself. Omnivores (from Latin omne all everything vorare to devour are species that eat both Plants and Animals as their primary Scavenging, or necrophagy, is a Carnivorous Feeding behaviour in which a predator consumes Corpses or Carrion that were killed It can also act as a filter feeder by digesting the bacteria in sand, but this is rare. Filter feeders (also known as suspension feeders) are Animals that feed by straining suspended matter and food particles from water typically by passing the water It is territorial, and in beaches where there is little food, fights between Krabby are common. Krabby also uses camouflage; it can form mucus sacs about itself if threatened, making it seem larger or making it harder to spot against sea sand. Camouflage is a method of cryptic or concealing coloration that allows an otherwise visible Organism It is usually very small, but it makes up by its aggressiveness.
Krabby first appeared at a beach in episode 13, Mystery At The Lighthouse, when Ash Ketchum wanted to prove that he could catch a Pokémon alone. Ash Ketchum, known as in Japan, is a Fictional character and the main Protagonist from the ''Pokémon'' anime. After the capture (which involved Krabby attacking Ash's finger), it was automatically transferred to Professor Oak's lab, because Ash already had six Pokémon with him. To Ash's great surprise, Gary had also caught another Krabby, which was much larger than his. Ash used Krabby in his first battle at the Indigo Tournament. Krabby won against an Exeggutor and evolved into Kingler, despite the fact that Krabby had never battled before.

Kingler (キングラー Kingurā?) is a crab with a single humongous claw. The claw grew to this size to protect Kingler from possible predators. It has the crushing force of 10,000 psi, but it comes at a price. The claw is very heavy, forcing Kingler to spend much of its time in the water, where the claw's buoyancy makes it seem lighter. However, due to this immense size and weight, Kingler can use the claw as a club-like weapon, the result of which is its signature attack, Crabhammer. However, Kingler can transition from water to land with relative ease, and when above water, it communicates with others of its species by waving its claw. It has four legs, which it uses to scuttle around. Its claw is normally kept low to the ground in order for Kingler to keep its stamina up.
In the anime, Ash's Krabby evolved into Kingler during the 1st round of the Indigo League. Kingler was barely used during his adventures in Johto and Kanto, although it was also used in the Whirlpool Tournament. Ash was also going to use Kingler in the Johto League, but an accident caused by three Voltorbs, injured Kingler, and therefore it couldn't battle. Ash's Kingler still lives at Professor Oak's Lab.

Voltorb is a very brutal Pokémon, colored and shaped almost like a Poké Ball. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series, Its body (much like its evolved form, Electrode) is under charged electrical pressure. The strength of their explosions is dependent on how much electricity they store in their bodies. When jarred or angered, a Voltorb can and will explode, causing massive damage to their aggressor and themselves (as seen in the video games when they use the moves 'Self-Destruct' or 'Explosion', both of which causes fainting to the user). It is so unstable that even the slightest bump in the road will make it explode spontaneously. Voltorb and Electrode are genderless, and can only be bred with the Pokémon Ditto. At the core of the multi-billion dollar Pokémon Media franchise of various electronic games, ongoing anime, several manga series Voltorb was first discovered near a power plant. The exact origin and nature of a Voltorb is unknown.
