Tuxemon of course uses the Five Agents/Elements from Chinese culture, while Pokemon has 18 Types. However, a couple of fans have put together Chinese zodiacs which - by necessity - use the Five Agents instead of the 18 Types. I thought people might be interested in this interaction between a different monster-catching game and the Five Agents that we use.

I find it interesting that they made some of the same associations we did: Metal includes monsters with electric powers, Water includes monsters with ice powers, etc.
