A few things you're going to need to become the ultimate Pokèmon trainer.

So you wanna be a Pokèmon trainer? Well tuck in and get reading, because everything below is going to tell you exactly what you need to become the ultimate Pokèmon trainer!

GEAR

- At the beginning of each adventure, a trainer is given a different pokèdex which details the Pokèmon of that region 

- Pokèballs are essential devices/capsules that are used to catch Pokèmon, throughout the Pokèmon world.

 - In conjunction, along with the Pokèdex, there are several different types of trainer tech that can be used such as; Poketch's, Wonder Laucnher's and Xtransceiver's.

EVOLUTION - YES OR NO?

At some point along your journey, you're going to have to figure out what you're going to do about evolving your Pokèmon. On one hand you have the advantage of your Pokèmon becoming stronger from evolution, but that alone can not determine whether or not evolution is going to be the best choice for you as trainer, because Pokèmon excel at different thing for each stage of their evolution. Which it means it might not make sense to evolve a Pokèmon the first chance you get. And just to add on top of that, some Pokèmon are more than happy to stay just as they are and don't want to evolve at all.

For example; "Ash and Pikachu now know Pikachu is happy to stay a Pikachu, but Ash was excited when he thought his Bulbasaur would evolve. As it turned out, Bulbasaur didn't want to evolve at all - so Ash not only apologised to Bulbasaur for being inconsiderate, he made a speech about how a Pokèmon should be able to freely choose when it wants to evolve." - Pokèmon Encyclopedia
