What are Pokémon ?

One very simple question and yet the answer is not so simple or easy. It directly involves the perspective that the question was initially asked. There are many aspects of Pokémon such as the in game creatures and the real world phenomenon. This real world aspect of Pokémon can be the subject for analysis from different points of view, such as a financial/marketing one or a gaming one and even a cultural one.

As a Pokémon trainer and former industry insider, I will try to share some thoughts on these captivating creatures, that multiple times managed to out place “sex” on the number one place of frequent search requests on major search engines.

In the Pokémon Origins project we will try to examine different aspects of Pokémon, in and out of the game universe. For this task we will use various tools or sciences such as biology, programming, marketing, folklore anthropology, gaming anthropology and much more that we’ll find on the way to discover the elusive Pokémon Origins.
