Now, I understand the concept of experience points and levels and blah blah blah as far as the games are concerned... And I can even understand them as far as "real life" (as loosely as the term can be used) goes. But could you really be able to calculate and/or tell how close your Pokémon is to leveling up in real life? Something tells me you couldn't... In that sense, I think the anime was smarter for not worrying about levels and such.

And while I'm at it, I think it's stupid that the Pokémon can only know four moves. Again, I sorta understand it for the games, 'cause they don't want you to be ridiculously overpowered, but honestly, I don't think it'd be the end of the world if a Pokémon had a buttload of moves... As long as your opponents did too. Would it be better? *shrugs* I dunno. It'd certainly be different, that's for sure...

...I think I got a little sidetracked. LAUGH AT THE FUNNY COMIC EL OH EL

I have have an idea...
I found some document styled as a scientific paper on the subject of pokemon evolution, and here are a couple of paragraphs:

---
Before we touch upon the subject of metamorphosis, first we should refresh our memories of certain basic details who's relevancy will be made apparent in due time. As written in the academic report filed by Professor Samuel Oak of the Kanto Research Association of Pokemon Genealogy, the `level' of a Pokemon is measured by the average number of mitochondria by the trillion located within the Pokemon. Therefore, a Pokemon who's `level' is `two' has roughly two-trillion mitochondria in its body. Likewise, a Pokemon who's `level' is `one-hundred' has approximately one-hundred trillion mitochondria in its body. Once the mark of one-hundred trillion has been reached, the Pokemon ceases to rapidly produce mitochondria; instead, it merely produces at the same rate that it loses mitochondria either through natural means or battle.

The body of a Pokemon employs these mitochondria in fantastic ways, such as breathing fire or summoning rain. However, only through contest and conflict with other Pokemon can a Pokemon increase the amount of mitochondria in its body. Because of this, only Pokemon used by trainers have reached this level as wild Pokemon are normally docile and live in natural harmony with their surroundings. Even so, each and every Pokemon develops its mitochondria at a particular pace, even though this pace varies with each Pokemon.
