The name Pokemon is the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters. The term Pokemon, in addition to referring to the Pokemon franchise itself, also collectively refers to the 802 known fictional species that have made appearances in Pokemon media as of the release of the seventh generation titles Pokemon Sun and Moon. "Pokemon" is identical in both the singular and plural, as is each individual species name; it is grammatically correct to say "one Pokemon" and "many Pokemon", as well as "one Pikachu" and "many Pikachu".
The original Pokemon games were role-playing games (RPGs) with an element of strategy, and were created by Satoshi Tajiri for the Game Boy. These RPGs, and their sequels, remakes, and English language translations, are still considered the "main" Pokemon games, and the games which most fans of the series are referring to when they use the term "Pokemon games". All of the licensed Pokemon properties overseen by The Pokemon Company International are divided roughly by generation. These generations are roughly chronological divisions by release; every several years, when an official sequel in the main RPG series is released that features new Pokemon, characters, and gameplay concepts, that sequel is considered the start of a new generation of the franchise. The main games and their spin-offs, the anime, manga, and trading card game are all updated with the new Pokemon properties each time a new generation begins. The franchise began the seventh generation on November 18, 2016.
The main staple of the Pokemon video game series revolves around the catching and battling of Pokemon. Starting with a starter Pokemon, the player can catch wild Pokemon by weakening them and catching them with Pok? Balls. Conversely, they can choose to defeat them in battle in order to gain experience for their Pokemon, raising their levels and teaching them new moves. Most Pokemon have 'evolution families', a term which refers to the Pokemon to evolve into or be evolved into more powerful forms by raising their levels or using certain items. Throughout the game, players will have to battle other trainers in order to progress, with the main goal to defeat various Gym Leaders/Trials and earn the right to become the regional champion. Subsequent games in the series have introduced various side games and side quests, including the Battle Frontiers that display unique battle types and the Pokemon Contests where visual appearance is put on display.
