A lot of people start their gaming in Japanese journey with Pokemon so the Pokemon list is going to be a little different than my other lists. I’m going to try to be more comprehensive for this one so that beginners can learn a lot of useful words right way. I’m also going to divide it into sections so that you can focus on learning a ton of words or just what you need to get by. This is a work in progress and an attempt to put a lot of words in context when combined with a copy of Pokemon Let’s Go so let me know what you think.
