Pokemon And The Universe

Space and Pokemon

Pokemon are defined as "Native creatures of a cradle of life who are trainable for use by sapient life." At the beginning of the galactic age, as the public focus switched from planetary preservation of life on Earth to securing new homes for humans to spread to, conditions on the homeworld became dire. Most species on Earth died out, and the ones that survived adapted to the harsh conditions of sharing the planet with humankind. Eventually, equilibrium formed, and the current list of existing pokemon stabilized. Sharing the planet with humans gave almost every one of these creatures at least some kind of pack-based survival instinct which allows sapient creatures to capture, train, and take advantage of these creatures for combat, industry, and companionship. Like dogs and horses before them, pokemon are beloved by the people.

Earth, however, is not the only planet to have developed pokemon. All cradles of life have some form of powerful creature like pokemon, and training technology has become such that even normally belligerent species, such as the fierce dragons of planet Ragnarok, will be at least somewhat trainable if caught using pokeballs.

Pokeballs

Pokeballs were invented by Deoxyns just prior to their galactic age. They were introduced to humans and Xects'es at the beginning of their galactic ages. Before that, Humans were adept at simply breeding or befriending useful pokemon, and Xects'es captured pokemon by shows of force. With the introduction of pokeballs, things became much easier.

The Alakazam Problem

Pokemon that, at some point in its life-cycle, gain sapience, are protected species. When these species are "Owned" it is the legal right of the trainer to treat the pokemon humanely, as if the trainer was a teacher and the pokemon a student, rather than as an owner and a pet. Sapient pokemon are entitled to a comfortable living atmosphere, regular autonomy outside of training sessions or battles, must be fed regularly, and are not to be fed on the same low-quality food as your "lower" pokemon. It is also illegal to keep sapient pokemon inside of their pokeball for periods longer than 48 hours at a time without exercise unless the creature has an injury that requires it be kept in digital stasis. These guidelines are legally required for all stages of the pokemon's life cycle, and not just the stage at which the pokemon gains the ability to communicate directly with their trainers. Having a pokemon of this sort is likened more to adopting a child than gaining a pet or acquiring a tool. They are useful in battles and through their utility functions, but mistreatment not only hurts the pokemon, but may lead to rebellion among the trainer's pokemon and injury for the trainer. Violators are subject to fines and jail time if they are found to be mistreating sapient pokemon in this way.

Normal Pokemon families who grow sapience as they mature:
ABRA
RALTS
SOLOSIS
SLOWPOKE
BELDUM

Ragnarok

Pokemon from the planet Ragnarok are under restricted status. However, there is a little bit of wiggle room. Obviously huge, threatening, uncontrollable pokemon, such as Rayquaza, and the Latii, aren't going to be available. However, it IS possible to own, for example, a Dratini, as long as the basic competency tests have been passed. There are Three tiers of permit one can acquire in order to own a pokemon from Ragnarok legally. Even with a permit, it is illegal to let Ragnarok pokemon free in non-Ragnarok ecosystems, as they are powerful enough that they may become invasive species. Even with legal ways to obtain them, smuggling is common.

Tier 1: Low Concern
These are pokemon which are of low concern. Legally, they are still protected species and cannot be released. This is a common permit for private Ragnarok enthusiasts to have, and is a very common permit on Sleipnir. This permit allows you to own and breed:
NOIBAT
AERODACTYL
LAPRAS
AMAURA
ARCHEN
CRANIDOS
SHIELDON
DRUDDIGON
TYRUNT
DRAMPA
TURTONATOR

Tier 2: Moderate Concern
These are pokemon which are uncommonly powerful. Usually, this permit is held in several categories, such as Military, Research, or Exhibition. Military Permits allow use and breeding of the pokemon for combat purposes, Research is for the purpose of scientific research, and exhibition is what you need to open a Zoo.
AXEW
DRATINI
BAGON
GIBLE
DEINO
GOOMY
LARVITAR
JANGMO-O

Tier 3: Extreme Concern
These permits are only for the most extreme cases, and never for the purpose of combat. Only a very small subset of Researchers hold Tier 3 Permits. These pokemon are so dangerous that they could single-handedly wreck whatever ecosystem they find themselves in.
ALL LEGENDARY POKEMON FOUND ON RAGNAROK

REGIONAL VARIANTS

Several pokemon have variant formes based on region and other conditions based on either natural selection or intentional genetic modification. Below are the most commonly seen ones, but others likely exist. It's a big universe.

MEOWTH
Dark-type Meowth and Persian. Considered prized "Show-cats" on Earth, these variants of Meowth and Persian were bred to be haughty and rude, but also to be softer and more luxurious to pet and touch. Lazy, demanding, and temperamental based on normal Meowths, but still highly sought after, and a status symbol to own.

CUBONE
A variety of cubone and Marowak found most commonly on tropical islands, especially in the south pacific, as opposed to the Desert-dwelling Ground-type Cubones. They are virtually indistinguishable in their first forms, but upon evolution, they develop a fire and ghost typing, having adapted to the abundance of grass types in tropical conditions.

RATATTA
A variety of Ratatta commonly found in Europe. The common, or "Grey" Rattata is found nearly all around the world, but the "Black" Rattata has gained a reputation as a carrier for disease, and was an invasive species across much of the Earth. In the Galactic age, both Rattatas are common companions to humankind - whether Humankind wants them or not - and have made a name for themselves as invasive species on space colonies and planets, instead of just countries and continents.

PIKACHU
A relatively recent variety of Pikachu developed in the space colonies by Deoxyns. This Pikachu was modified to carry psychic-type DNA, and evolves into a friendly, empathetic Raichu with a surprising amount of speed and power. Commonly referred to as "Deoxyn Pikachu" and "Deoxyn Raichu" thanks to their genetic origin. Human purists tend to prefer the common Pikachu, of course.

SANDSHREW
Quite simply a Sandshrew variety that evolved in cold, harsh temperatures. Referred to as the Siberian Sandshrew.

VULPIX
The Arctic Vulpix was common further north, closer to the arctic while their fire-type cousins are more common closer to the equator. Both have mystical lore surrounding them.

DIGLETT
A variety of Diglett found in Chythrakki Volcanic basins, where they camouflage themselves among thin, hair-like strands of glass that form around volcanic rock. Slightly tougher than normal Diglett, but they still rely more on their speed and burrowing ability to escape from predators.

GEODUDE
A variety of Geodude found near the magnetic poles of the planet Chythrakk. Having adapted to hiding among magnetic rock, this Geodude has become magnetic itself, cloaking itself in metallic detritus to cloak itself from anything that wishes it harm. A common pokemon in Xects'es power plants, thanks to their easy-to-exploit magnetic and electrical abilities.

GRIMER
A rare variety of Grimer from deep in PFL jungles. While normal Muk and Grimer in Deoxyn settlements are somewhat easily dispatched bottom-feeders, thanks to their unfavorable typing to the psychic majority on the planet, "Dark Grimer" or "Fool's Grimer" are a major threat on Deoxyn worlds. It is highly aggressive in its need to expand and hunt. Unlike normal Grimer, who subsist only on a diet of garbage, Dark Grimers will occasionally hunt unwary psychic types. They have also been known to hunt Deoxyns foolish enough to wander into their territory. Overhunting has led to this variety being quite rare compared to its friendlier and more timid cousin.

EXEGGCUTE
Not so much a variety as it is an Exeggcute which got enough sunlight as it was growing up. Most space-bourne Exeggcutes evolve into Exeggutors which are commonly seen - short, stumpy, clumsy, and with a psychic typing. However, if an Exeggcute gets the amount of sun it would have gotten had it lived on the equator of a planet, where it would have lived on the Deoxyn homeworld, it will evolve into a taller variety, with a long tail, and a dragon typing. Deoxyns find the planetary variety majestic, while others tend to find the ridiculous.


Pokemon availability:

With a few exceptions, pokemon are found inhabiting planets and moons that were terraformed to emulate their natural environments. They are classified by their Cradle of Life.
