How does the pokemon world even function?

I see pokedex entries about pokemon being able to eat entire mountains, flip trucks and sink ships etc. and theres 700 species and thousands of each of them.

You've overestimating how common certain Pokemon are.

Also people who have their own Pokemon can use them to ward off wild Pokemon anyway.

Not unless they roam around the world, train, and get all the gym badges. =D

Without a badge, your beloved pet will eventually start thinking you suck and stop listening to you. Yay, pokemon and humans are friends forever.

Badges are only necessary for Pokemon you get via trades. Pokemon you catch/hatch don't need them.

Pokemon are better than humans, and far less likely to abuse their power.

Bud, there are WAY more than thousands of each Pokemon.
I'm willing to bet at least 10,000 Gibles have hatched since the end of last month.

This is why gameplay and story tend to be separate. Otherwise the Pokedex would go from "This Pokemon is so rare that it was thought to be myth" to "most trainers have at least 10 of this Pokemon" or "This is one of the most common Pokemon due to trainers breeding them".

Pokemon are friendly and try not to destroy things because human beings done a great favor for them in the past.Pokemon pass on their steel law tradition to be servants for human beings forever even though they have the ability to think and make decisions.My explanation for the pokemon world.
