HP, also known as Health/hit points (we prefer to call them HP on here). HP is the very health of a Pokemon. It tells us a lot about Pokemon: whether they are about to faint or if theyíve energy to waste. It also helps us to decide when is the best time to use those nifty Poke balls to capture Pokemon. Without HP, how else will you know all this? Below Iím going to do a simple explanation on how it works around here.
All Pokemons HP works like a percentage.
A healthy Pokemon has 100% as a KOed Pokemon has 0%. If a Pokemon reaches 0% that doesnít mean itís dead. Yes, Pokemon do die in Pokemon Fable but thatís only if a trainer or its Pokemon savages it to death. When a Pokemon faints (when itís HP is 0%), you can
I repeat can
use a Poke ball on it. You have more of a success rate catching it when itís fainted than you would if it had 10% HP left. Why is this? Itís because itís KOíed, thatís why.
A short list of how to tell what your Pokemon is feeling by its HP.
