The Science of Pokémon: An Argument for Inorganic Pokemon

Fantasy monster or apex predator? One of the biggest arguments I see relating to inorganic pokémon is the general consensus that pokémon that look like inorganic objects are not feasible. However, I wish to present a rather scientific argument as to why these pokémon whose adaptations are inspired by man-made objects make perfect sense. Since the beginning of the franchise, evolution has been an important mechanic.  As I explained in a previous blog , pokémon evolution isn't actually true evolution. Instead, it is a metamorphosis, with juvenile organisms eventually maturing into adults. Not every animal goes through metamorphosis, which explains why some pokémon never "evolve" in the game. That doesn't mean that natural selection, the driving force behind real world evolution, doesn't occur. Natural selection occurs when an organism is born with a random characteristic that makes it better suited to the environment, which leads to them being able to breed

Obviously this has fueled speculation as to whether this is a pokemon will see in a game this generation, or if it a leaked pokemon from the next generation. My
