  • you forgot to account for factors such as race habets. if the female stays in and the mael goes out, so the death ratio is 7 male for every female. than breading 7 male for every female is balanced. it is as simple as that, problem solved. the real answer to your question is that humans wiped out the wild population because of the disruption caused by capturing so many. starters are powerful pokemon. the reason why none of the other trainers have any, is because this happened some time ago. because of the rarity, only the professors are allowed to give them out from the breading reserves. the reason they give them out at all is for research. notice how the only people that have them also have a pokedex?

    Connor McorrieConnor Mcorrie3 gün önce
  • Basically: For every seven males there is one female, the females are the ones who make and carry the eggs, less females = less babies, and with females being rare already...at a certain point, there would be no females. If it were reversed and there were seven females for one male, then that would be fine because one male can fertalize all of the females and thus have more babies, more females and the males would be fine because there are more and more babies constantly being made with so many females! If any altering factor were to jump in front of train tracks that lead the breeding train, then the Bulbasaur's would go extinct faster then they could evolve to adapt.
