Pokemon battles are a TEST of strength and wits
Both sides fight eachother until one is tired out / declares the other stronger.
Killing pokemon in battle is looked down upon.
Its pretty much like how irl animals “fight for dominance” kind of thing to see whos the stronger one?
With trainers its the same way except pkmn and trainer are one and it needs a ton of concentration and focus, which is why you shouldnt be ten years old running around with an oddish fighting a scyther. You wont know what to do.
Pokemon battles arent like dog fighting smh
