The Philosophical Sheep asks:

Are pokemon all made of some kind of energy? Is that the unifying factor? That would explain a lot.

Well, matter is a kind of energy, so in that sense, yeah, they are.  The problem I have with “energy” is that it’s a good way of sounding like you’ve explained something when you actually haven’t – sort of like how calling a substance a “chemical” is always technically correct, but so broad that it’s meaningless.
