While watching the entertaining cartoon animated series or while reading about the franchise, you may have wondered about what is the plural of Pokémon? Haven’t you ever noticed if the Pokémon trainers shout Pokémon or Pokémon(s) when they are calling their little buddies out in the playfield? Can the origin of the word Pokémon have any connection with its plural form?
Pokémon is a short abbreviation for the words Pocket Monsters in Japan. The quirky term was originated by gigantic tech companies Game Freak, Creatures, and Nintendo while creating the Japanese media franchise, The Pokémon Company. The franchise was founded in 1996 and revolves around the tiny fictional creatures known as Pokémon in the Pokémon universe. The vast universe is full of a wide variety of Pokémon (approx. 901 species) who are looked after by Pokémon trainers and trained to fight against evil.
Is Pokémon The Plural Of Pokémon? Is Pokémon Pokémons?
When talking about the shiny little creatures, most people get confused about using the plural form of the word Pokémon. Pokémon is a noun and by definition is uncountable. It means that the plural form of the term is the same as the singular form, Pokémon. Another theory behind its plural form being the same is that the word is already an abbreviation of a plural term.
