This is an old page - it still exists for archival purposes, but it hasn't been on the menu since 2005, possibly earlier. That means I wrote it as a young teenager and found it embarrassing or redundant enough to disown it even when I was fifteen. Thus, it is probably outdated, poorly or childishly written and presented, and otherwise of questionable quality, and I do not necessarily endorse any views and opinions expressed here today. If you've stumbled upon it, treat it accordingly.

What is Pokémon?

The term 'Pokémon' can mean two things. It can mean the franchise as a whole, or it can mean the monsters it is named after.

Pokémon, the franchise, was immensely popular among children in 1998-2000 or so.
