Pokéapi API - How To

The free-to-use Pokémon RESTful API (Pokéapi) is linked to an extensive database of Pokémon-related information- a true virtual Pokédex. Simple GET HTTP requests can be sent to the API to access 54,363 objects sourced from Pokémon video games covering Pokémon characters, abilities, moves, attack, life and defensive statistics, and more. This is a read-only API, and no authentication is required for it's use. So far to date the API has serviced over 13,000,000 requests. The Pokéapi is independently supported by Paul Hallett, a Python & Go API developer and avid GitHub contributor. In addition, 5 language specific libraries have been made to interface with the API for Python, .NET, Racket, Java & Ruby.
