    Tbh, the example of the Panda kinda bugged me. Since Pandas are fairly useless to the environment and have such a stupid digestive system that only let's them properly digest useless foods. I don't think keeping those animals alive is worth any work. Life is not worth anything just by being life. After all, life is just something we defined. I could very well call the next stone I see life as a part of nature. Also, since we are all made of stardust essentially, I could also strike an argument from there for "lifeless" things to be the same as us. My point is, actively keeping alive species that would die 100% without our work to keep them alive is a waste of time if the species is useless. I can understand why we would try and keep Bees alive, but Pandas? Why? I love animals, I don't hate Pandas. But disrupting evolution, our scientific rise and nature to keep them alive? Seems crazy to me. Just let them die out.

    Here’s a theory. Wild Starters and Captivity Starters may lay their eggs differently. Lets say Bulbasaur have a Queen, lets say a Venusaur, and the males are like her works, just like actual bees. Venusaur Queen is able to lay more lays, like the so call frogs their referees too, then a normal caught Bulbasaur or any of its evol forms. So in the wild there are many wild Bulbasaur but they may live only in one place, like one of those “out of bounds” areas that none of us can reach and, like in Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, they do sometimes appear for the catching. The same is said about Charmander and Squirtle in that game. Shoot I was able to catch wild Charizard’s like they Rattata. This can be said for the Gen 1 Red and Blue games but those starters just never leave their homes, EVER. Leaving us to accept aid from another game and trade to finish the Pokédex.

    I've got an idea : 1 like gave to that video= 1 pokedollar gave to proffessor tree to help him save the starters species and one game theorist's subscriber =2 female starter hatched. So there was more than 11,000,000 female baby starter pokemon and more than 136,000 pokedollars gave to proffessor tree when i whrote that comment. (Sorry for the orthograph mistakes).

    Watch this over a friend's house he showed me and I disagree 1 I know you went over this I just got to add it cuz it's part of it but there's more there's ditto also there's legendaries that can be used the same way as ditto for breeding also could Arceus just make more then there's when the legendary is captured something important like Gen 4 legendaries or gen 3 legendaries especially Rayquaza now there is a male and female Pokemon that can't breed Nidoran and nidorina but somehow in Pokemon the Movie Mewtwo returns there's baby Nidoqueen so should they be extinct because of a video game mechanic also I'm not saying that your information about there being more males or females for starters in the video game but you can restart 3-4 X soft reset and get 3 females in a row also just because it says it's not available unknown area doesn't it mean it's true yes starters are rare but in Pokemon Gold version you can face a trainer that has a Charmander or Charmeleon Lance has a Charizard in the first generation you can see a whole bunch of Bulbasaur's and then if you're going off the video game the gym leader has a Bulbasaur or Ivysaur don't feel like looking it up the reason why they're not catchable in game cuz they don't want you to have five Charizard's unless you breed them cuz if you could just catch them people would stock their team but back to the map saying area unknown when searching for Pokemon prime example every video game for Pokemon on which Pokemon that you can or cannot catch now in Pokemon Blue version you can catch a Poliwag now in Pokemon Red version when you check it says area unknown but if you go to Pallet Town and go down where the water is you can fish there and you can catch a Poliwag even though it says area unknown and I'm not speaking about glitches same thing with ditto they say depending on the game you can only catch a Ditto Mewtwo's cave or the mansion on Cinnabar Island but that's not the case you can catch one on the side from the fuchsia City don't remember the name of the route it's the one on the right hand side the left side would be the bike trail so the opposite side going to Lavender Town but if you want to debate different topics that be cool on your theory on some of the stuff I said in this post

    Lets pretend charmander and squirtle were out of the picture. Every person that buys the game would need a pokemon to get started and oak and some other folk saw the potential in bulbasaur so they decided to distribute them to every 10 yos. As mentioned in the anime, starter Pokémon are raised by Breeders to be distributed to new Trainers. So they are not going extinct they just are being handed out to trainers around the world

    Note: I didn't check GitHub, and as such did not promise not to criticize your code... so... Just a bit o' suggestions for your Python code! :) - Don't use a space in your filename. - Don't use CapWords for any non-class variable. (`MalePop`, etc.) - All indents should be 4 spaces wide, the "while" loop is 8 spaces. - The `x` in the "for" loops on line 24 and 29 could be replaced with an underscore as to indicate it's useless. - You need a space after the comma on line 25, 30, 36 and 42. - `FemalePop += -1` is much more pythonic written as `FemalePop -= 1` (line 27). - You need a space after the `
