Creatures, also called tuxemon or monsters, are the beings that the protagonist catches and battles.
- A single example of a creature is called an individual or a character. For example, "Beachcomber Harry's level 5 Memnomnom" is an individual creature.
- A variety or species is all creatures of that category. For example, "Memnomnom" is a variety of tuxemon.
- A family of creatures is a variety and all its morphs. For example, Memnomnom, Miaownolith, Criniotherme and Pyraminx are all varieties in the "Memnomnom family".
The origin of tuxemon
Animals, Food and Tuxemon
The question of whether real-world animals exist, and the related question of whether tuxemon are eaten as food by people, has been considered on the forums. Tentative agreement was that real-world animals do not exist, and that tuxemon are eaten at least by other tuxemon, and probably by people as well.
Scoop, one of the villainous corporations in the main story, runs a factory farm, but it is not clear if this is just for milk and eggs, or for meat as well.
In a different story, the protagonist could find a shadow world where the tuxemon are people and the people are tuxemon. Some have already been sprited.
