21 Animals And Items That Need To Be Pokémon

Gotta catch’em all! Also, need to create’em all, Game Freak! BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘posted_date’, 1409944494); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_posted_time_3438326”).innerHTML = “posted on ” + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(1409944494); });

1. Capybara

The capybara is the largest known rodent in the world. It would fit perfectly as a region’s normal rodent type!

2. Flamingo

I was quite said when Spritzee didn’t evolve into a flamingo, or witch doctor inspired flamingo. Water/Flying, Water/Fairy or Fairy/Flying could work.

3. Coffee Beans

Coffee beans? Yeah! Think of how Exeggcute works with six random eggs, but with coffee beans. Likely Dark-type only.

4. Computer Mouse

This could be the next generations Electric-mouse! It could be Electric/Steel and look more like a real mouse than a computer mouse.

5. Cattail

Just imagine you’re wading through a swampy area and the cattails start attacking you! Definitely a Water/Grass type.

6. Andrew W.K. Party Trio

Andrew W.K. is the world’s best partier and would be incredible inspiration for a legendary Pokémon trio. The trio would each have W.K.’s signature long, sweaty hair, but represent the three different stages of partying: Pre-Party (Normal/Electric Type), Party (Electric), After-Party (Water/Electric (Water from the sweat!)).

I would love to see some fan-art for this!

7. Gargoyle

One could argue that Gligar/Gliscor are gargoyles, but I argue they aren’t because they are Ground/Flying, not Rock/Flying!

8. Koala

Koalas (which aren’t actually bears) would fit the cutesy mold of certain Pokémon, but could be a mean little bugger too. Grass type.

9. Video Camera

Since Pokémon are used alongside humans for certain needs, couldn’t you see a video camera Pokémon along side a journalist or a police officer (in the Pokémon Universe)? The tripod would be its legs, and it could be a Fairy/Dark type. Fairy for the whimsical nature of film-making and Dark type for film-noir!

10. Bookshelf

Think of the bookshelf moving like Cofagrigus. Normal/Ghost type.

11. Donkey

Pokémon needs more farm animals! Normal type.

12. Chili Pepper

No, not Anthony Kiedis or Flea, but rather a real chili pepper! Fire/Grass type.

13. Red Panda

Red pandas are too cute to not have in the Pokémon world. Fire type or Electric type!

14. Clown

Many people are scared of clowns, so why not make it into a horror-based Pokémon? No, Mr. Mime is not truly a clown (though it says so on Bulbapedia). Psychic/Dark

15. Jaguar Warrior

(Relevant to those that played Age of Empires.)

Jaguar and Aztec inspired bipedal fighting type Pokémon

16. Gluten

May as well ride the wave of the fad that is gluten, well gluten-free that is. I guess normal type?

17. Buzzfeed


View this image › / Via PBS


Electric/Fairy type because a) the buzz part and b) Buzzfeed is full of whimsy like fairy types are!

18. Bumblebee


View this image › / Via Clip Art

So we have Beedrill, Combee and Vespiquen, so why do we need a bumblebee? Because none of those are chubby and cute like bumblebees are! Combee males don’t evolve either so this could be their evolution! Bug/Flying.

19. Hummingbird


View this image › / Via Wikimotive

Hummingbirds are such a fascinating bird and I believe they deserve a place in the Pokémon Universe as well. I could see a hummingbird being a pre-evolution to Skarmory! Steel/Flying, or just Flying type!

20. Nuclear Power

Nuclear Power

This is more of an abstract design, but possibly a nuclear plant’s smokestack based Pokémon? Electric type and it could have a nuclear waste evolution that becomes Electric/Poison!

21. Camel Spider

I’ll spare those scared of spiders a picture, but camel spiders are desert based, petrifying looking spiders. They would be Rock/Poison type.
