His final point was a word of caution with respect to the culture that surrounds Pokemon. “It’s specifically based around over-exploitation with the tagline ‘gotta catch them all.’ The rarer they get, the more valuable they get.

We might have focused on climate change in this study but, for many Pokemon (and many species around the world), overexploitation should also be a concern.”
