  Miscellaneous Info

  Welcome to my first attempt to make a Trainer’s Guide for the Pokemon game series. I hope someone finds a use for this information. It took me a long time to compile all the necessary info for this text, but I believe it was worth it. You may use any of the information on this page on other sites, but please email me first so I may tell you who should get credit for what. I will give a Credits section at the end of this document to help you know, but if one section is not listed, please email me. The people who researched all of this info took out a lot of their personal time to find all of this information out, and they deserve to be accredited for their work. If in doubt of what to do and you can’t contact me, just give credit to this page, and the credits here will point the way to the correct person.


Note: These are not the sites that I copied, for I tried not to copy. These are the sites that gave me inspiration when making this guide, or otherwise educated me to all things Pokemon. Sometimes the explanations on the sites found on are so informative, they can’t be explained any better than they are. I may have borrowed a few lines here or there, and I apologize if this offends anyone.
