A Study in Pokemon TaxonomyThe science and practice of organizing and classifying Pokémon into a coherent ordering that does not directly contradict the already well-established taxonomy of all other life forms is a daunting task that has troubled Pokémon biologists for some time due to several main factors: the general differences between Pokémon and other life forms at the cellular level; contrary to that, the similarities in body structure of many Pokémon and similar animals; the dilemma of whether to count Pokémon as more closely related by Elemental type or by body structure; and the lack of any sort of clear pattern of common decent amongst Pokémon, contrary to most other categories of life.A Study in Pokemon Taxonomy in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The first and foremost point that must be addressed in Pokémon Biology is their inherent cellular energy signature. This is the reason why Pokémon's cell structure can be easily destabilized and compressed into energy for storing inside a Poké ball. It

Charizard are large, draconic Fire-type Pokémon, and the fully evolved form of Charmander, a species recognized as official Pokémon League Starters. As such, Charizard are relatively rare in the wild, and their habitats are under strict protection and regulation by the League.

Felismythos originis anceps
Mewtwo is a transgenic Pokémon widely considered to be one of the most powerful Pokémon in the world. Its body is tall and overbearing with a distinctly humanoid anatomy. The head is the only part that is catlike, with pointed ears and the typical feline jaw structure. Connecting the rear of the head to the upper back is a tubular bundle of nerves, which serve to amplify Mewtwo's already powerful brain. The upper body and arms are lean and sinewy, with the chest covered by a solid plate of bone. By contrast, the lower half of the body is rounded and well-built, with extremely large thigh muscles. Like Mew, Mewtwo's fur is very short and fine, but the coloring is a pale violet. The tail is long, thick, and hairless.
One rather unusual aspect of Mewtwo is that blood samples confirm it to be chromosomally male, however, it was engineered to

Lugia is an immense mythic beast mentioned in a number of ancient writings from several different cultures. It is generally referred to as the "Guardian of the Waters" or the "Beast of the Sea", both names being derived from its ability to control ocean waves and storms. Its forelimbs are wings, and despite its draconic appearance, Lugia is officially classified as a bird. Its long serpentine neck supports a sleek avian head with twin violet crests rising above each eye. The feathers at its wingtips are the most prominent, the rest being folded together much like the sleek, waterproof down that covers the rest of its body. Its thigh muscles are particularly well developed, and its hind legs are three-toed and almost mammalian in appearance. Completing the draconic form is a long reptilian tail tipped with violet spikes. Its coloring has been reported as silve
