The strategy in the gameplay comes from two factors. First of all, there's an ambitiously large ElementalRockPaperScissors setup. 15 (later 17, and now 18[[note]]excluding the ???-type, which was removed in ''Black'' and ''White'' and the shadow type, which only exists in certain spinoff titles [[/note]]) different elements are in play, and some species of Pokémon belong to ''two'' elements instead of just one, which can neutralize or compound the elements' respective resistances or weak points. Pokémon aren't strictly limited to moves of their elemental type either[[note]]though they do receive an attack bonus for it[[/note]], but can learn almost any move the particular creature might ''reasonably'' be capable of executing (like [[MakingASplash Water]] Pokémon using [[AnIcePerson Ice]]-type moves, or [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragon]] Pokémon using [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type moves), and sometimes ones they aren't (a [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Lapras plesiosaur-like creature]] learning to eat dreams and shoot lightning? [[RuleOfCool Okay!]]).

These {{Role Playing Game}}s, developed by Creator/GameFreak and published by Creator/{{Nintendo}}, spawned a [[CashCowFranchise multi-billion dollar franchise]] rivaling the ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' series (which of course is also published by Nintendo), and indirectly caused the proliferation of Western broadcasts of {{anime}}, along with ''Franchise/DragonBall'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. ''Pokémon'' went on to become the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_highest-grossing_media_franchises highest-grossing]] entertainment media franchise of all time, surpassing not only ''Mario'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', but even ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' and ''Franchise/StarWars''.

''Franchise/StarWars''.[[note]]Although there is a minor caveat; as the linked Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} article notes, 35% of the revenue was generated in the franchise's home country of Japan, so if you exclude that country, then it's the second-highest grossing franchise behind ''Star Wars'', although this is based on ''Star Wars''[='=]s Japanese sales (which we don't know the exact percentage of when compared to its overall revenue) still being incorporated into its revenue.[[/note]]

The second factor is the strict move limit: each of your Pokémon can only know 4 moves at once, out of a large movepool that they can learn from. This was hampered in the first generation by balance issues leading to some elements and species becoming obvious {{Game Breaker}}s, but later generations have made many strides in balancing them out, most notably with the addition of new types: [[CombatPragmatist Dark]], [[ExtraOreDinary Steel]] and [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Fairy]]. Other restrictions placed on the player are the number of Pokémon one can have on a given team, which is no more then six at a time. Other mechanics introduced in later generations, such as items that Pokémon can hold and abilities they can possess are also limited but serve to increase depth in strategy.
