Why is this a concept?

I didn't know there was a concept of Ecans, I thought Ekans was a type of Pokemon, which would make it a character sort of like goomba is a character...

Most Pokemon are considered concepts i believe, until they make a 'race' category or something similar to that.

Actually, I just talked to the other mods. They're concepts.

Characters like Ash's Pikachu are characters, but the whole Pikachu race is a concept.

Guys, please, Pokemon aren't concepts, they're characters."
So Pokemon are all individuals, and not members of a specific race? If so, then you're correct. If they are just members of various races, then they should be labeled concepts until the race tab is developed.
