PokeAPI is a website that provides an Application Programming Interface (API) connecting to Pokemon-related objects built from lines of data related to Pokemon. It is a RESTful API, which follows a looser set of constraints than the traditional type. Specifically designed to cover the Pokemon video game franchise, PokeAPI provides information on all things Pokemon—moves, types, egg groups, abilities, and more.
AWS Kinesis is a fully managed service by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows real-time processing of streaming data at a massive scale. It simplifies the ingestion, storage, processing, and analysis of streaming data from various sources such as IoT devices, application logs, clickstreams, and more. Kinesis offers multiple components, including Kinesis Data Streams for real-time data streaming, Kinesis Data Firehose for easy data loading into data stores, and Kinesis Data Analytics for real-time analytics. With high throughput and low latency, AWS Kinesis enables businesses to gain valuable insights, detect anomalies, perform real-time monitoring, and build responsive applications based on the continuous flow of streaming data.

With Airbyte, creating data pipelines take minutes, and the data integration possibilities are endless. Airbyte supports the largest catalog of API tools, databases, and files, among other sources. Airbyte's connectors are open-source, so you can add any custom objects to the connector, or even build a new connector from scratch without any local dev environment or any data engineer within 10 minutes with the no-code connector builder.
