You can catch them in the wild, in the grass; but sometimes you get them as gifts or at special events.
You can obtain Pokemon by receiving a free Pokemon at the start of your journey (known as a "starter" Pokemon), by capturing them with Pokeballs, trading, evolving other Pokemon, or hatching them from eggs.
