pokemon has had most of those elements since gen 1 hence its comparable to stuff like traditional turn-based RPGs like the Final Fantasy games, but rather than having story characters fight, its the Random Encounter Monsters that you use in place

but it still has a story with good/bad factions

stilll has random encounter systems

still has the primary function of turn-based RPG combat

and has an equivalent to a Party System and Leveling/EXP

so even since the original red/blue/yellow its had all the makings of a traditional turn-based RPG game but having all the primary features, you can even say it has its own form of things like classic RPG Treasure Chests in the Item-Balls that lie scattered around the game world
