The fourth generation of Pokemon brought us an evolution in franchise lore, being that Game Freak introduced us to the Pokemon that held the rank of deity in this universe. Of course, it could also be seen as the initial Pokemon had their leading rolesince the type combinations of Torterra, Infernape and Empoleon caused all of them to be weak and at the same time strong among themselves, this being something that has not been repeated in the saga.
