is the procedure of aligning one's
Aura frequency with a
Pokémon's Aura frequency. Before
Devices were created, Linking was the only way to effectively
Enlighten and tame
a wild Pokémon. It was a technique that, at first, was only accessible to those
with Cho'moken -
something that earned Cho'moken wielders a mixture of awe and scorn from people
unable to use the ability. Later, the formation of
Kakureiro granted yet more people the chance to train with Pokémon.
Linking was only possible with
who displayed an interest in training with a human. Trying to link with a Pokémon
against its will was not only impossible, but also dangerous.
Capture Devices would later artificially recreate
the Linking technique. Pokémon
Ranger Capture Stylers synthetically mimic the Linking technique in order to
allow a Pokémon
Ranger to temporarily grant a wild Pokemon Enlightenment.
