pokemon makes no sence
in oder for evoloution to occur, some thing's are required
1. Variation must already exist with in a population via recombination, mutation and gene flow
2.There must be excess offspring being produced
3.There must be a selective presure
4.One type of variation must be favourble over another i.e colour, this varient is then "selected"
5.Selected Varient must breed thus out-breeding the compition (other varient)
6.Selected varient becomes more dominant in the population (i.e 99% selected varient, 1% other)
thus the species has evolved
does that happen in pokemon whenever somone evolves...NO!
(grrr bio exam in 5 days)
also..... [insert comment about zombie pokemon being atractive]

there are no zombie pokemon
Oct 25 2006, 11:35 AM
haha, lay off the zombies slurpee
and the biol
AND the drugs!

Gene Flow is not a source of variation
and i disagree with point 2
Oct 25 2006, 12:34 PM
gene flow introduces variation into a population though.
and by "excess offspring" in point two, that realy just means must be producing offspring,
Why do demons and ghouls hang out together?
Because demons are a ghouls best friend!

I agree with the concept of point 2 but not the wording (note I don't study biol). My understanding is that by "excess offspring being produced" it just means that there must be enough babies being made that due to probability some of them are different, just because if you do something enough times eventually get a different result or so says the chaos theorem (nasty thing, but that's to be saved for another ISFAT). I would word it "enough offspring produced for variation to be feasible" or something like that.

And i dont see how gene flow introduces variation into a population still. Explain?
Oct 26 2006, 07:01 AM
Because gene flow involves two populations of the same species but relitively isolated (isolation not to great so that they can never interbreed) from each other.
so although they are the same species they contain a differnt concentration of variation and possible differnt variation due to mutations and selection presures. so when one from population 1 breeds with some one from population 2 new variation is introduced.
for example, in grave yard A (GYA) there are 50 zombies, and all these zombies usally only breed with zombies from there own grave yard, and all the zombies in GYA crave only human brains, and down the block there is another grave yard, grave yard B, (GYB), and all the zombies here dont mind eating any part of humans, Now every now and then a zombie from GYB will walk over to GYA and breed with those zombies, thus introducing the gene that allowes zombies to crave any part of humans into the GYA population. thus introducing a new varient into the population via gene flow =D
And excess offspring is kinda required cause that produces offspring, and if its a species that only makes like one child a year per female there may not be enough diversity to adapt to the selection presure its facing

I think its easier to think of it in terms of
Variation, Selection, Survival, Reproduction, Inheritance, Generations.
Variation must exist in the population, there must be a selecting pressure that selects a certain trait, these organisms then survive and reproduce, passing down the trait to their offspring and then this occurs over many generations, allowing for the change in allele frequencies.
Edit - btw slurpee, on ure exam, spell evoloution - evolution

....ahhh what the fuck?
...u people should get your noses out of the textbooks!!!
Oct 26 2006, 08:44 AM
haha, nice one kiki
just for the record- at the moment, this is my favourite thread on isfat =)
ps. its demons are a girls best friend =)
Oct 27 2006, 09:14 AM
what about a ghoulsih girl??
another thing i never understood about pokemon, why can they only say there name?
i mean if they posses the stuctures required to pronounce sounds why can they only say there name, and they can reason aswell which just makes there inabilty to talk more unrealistic
and when talking to another pokemon although they keep saying the same word over and over they seem to be able to have a conversiation!!!!
DOESNT THAT SCARE ANY ONE ELSE!

whats with pokemon never dying?
Oct 27 2006, 11:58 AM
charmander and (its evolutions?) can

prehaps fainting is dying but what they dont show you in the game is at the poke centers where they are "healed" they are atcally sacrovicing virgin maidens to the gods in order to proform the resurrection's of your pokomon!!!!
nah we covered that base in the torchic thread, that base being cytosine of coarse.
that was such a sad episiod when charmander's flame was going out =(
but later when charazard was dying, i wasnt sad, that basterd would never listen to ash
