You're never stuck with the data you get from the server.
The Pokeapi doesn't have an id property on Pokemon but we can transform our response to include exactly what we need.

With a little destructuring assignment and object spread we can augment our API with helpful properties

export function fetchPokemonCollection() {
  return fetch(`https://pokeapi.co/api/v2/pokemon`)
    .then(res => res.json())
    .then(res => ({..res, results: res.results.map(pokemon => ({ 
      ...pokemon, 
      id: pokemon.url.split("/")[6]
      }))
    }))
    .then(sleep(1000));
}

I think it's typo in ({..res}) it should have 3 dots { ... res }

Thanks for that @Mihail! That typo is fixed now.
