Declaration of Pokmon
When, in the course of Pokmon events, it becomes necessary for Pokmon and trainers
alike to assemble bonds of friendship that will connect them throughout their journey, and
to assume, among the powers of the Earth, the together yet separate and equal station to
which the Laws of Nature and of Pokmons God, Arceus, entitle them (Locke), a decent
respect to the opinions of Pokmon and mankind requires that they should declare the
causes which impel them to unite.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Pokmon and men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
life, friendship, unity and mutual understanding between trainer and Pokmon (Hobbs);
that, to secure these rights, Pokmon Centers and Gyms are instituted among the Kanto,
Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos regions (Montesquieu), deriving its just powers
from the consent of the governed (Rousseau) and knowledge gathered by the Pokmon
professors in each given region. That whenever any Team of people becomes dominate
over Pokmon, it is the Right of the People and Pokmon to alter or abolish it, and have
them arrested by Officer Jenny (Rousseau). Both people and Pokmon have equal power
that is divided between the two as to not make any unfair decisions affecting both parties
(Montesquieu). Loyalty, indeed, will dictate that friendships long established should not
be changed for light and transient causes (Hobbs). The history of the present Pokmon
trainers and Pokmon is a history of disbanding villainous teams that steal Pokmon for
profit and try to become the supreme rulers of the world, all by using the strength of their
friendship to overpower evil (Locke).
To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
Pokmon and trainers:

Have harmoniously lived together.


Have trained together to compete in Pokmon leagues and Gyms.
Have looked after each others health and visited Pokmon Centers regularly.

Have decided their journeys together.


Have mutual respect for each other.
Have willing fought side by side.
Have become each others families.
Have always been together.
Belong together.

We, therefore, the Champions of the Pokmon regions, in General Congress assembled,
appealing to the Judgment of Arceus of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do,
in the name and by the authority of the good people and Pokmon, solemnly publish and
declare, that people and Pokmon are to live together in harmony as not only friends, but
family. As equal beings, they shall have the freedom to train together and become
stronger as one.
And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine
Providence, all people and Pokmon should mutually pledge to other their lives,
friendship, and respect.
