15 Awesome Animals That Really Should Be Pokemon

Seriously, why isn’t there a dolphin Pokemon???

With the release of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, the number of Pokemon totals over 700 different species. Some species have been remarkably similar to older Pokemon (how many butterfly and bat Pokemon do you think you can slip by us, Nintendo?) but here are some dynamic animals from the real world that have yet to be made into animated dueling monsters:

1. Bongo

I can see it now… “Bongrass, use Mean Look! Now, Tackle!”

2. Peacock

The possibilities are endless with this one. Fire/Flying? Psychic? Anything, really!

3. Dolphin

Honestly, how doesn’t this exist.

4. Iguana

Sure, there’s plenty of lizards. There’s even a chameleon Pokemon. But is there AN IGUANA????

5. Lemur

So adorable! Perfect for a Cute Contest!

6. Sea Anemone

I know, I know, we don’t need more Water Pokemon. Still, wouldn’t this be awesome?

7. Tiger

Seems like a staple to me. Some may argue that Raikou is a tiger or tiger-like, but I’m not buying it.

8. Platypus

No explanation needed.

9. Wombat

I know, call it “Woobat!” Wait, shit.

10. Hummingbird

Innocent, yet beguiling.

11. Glaucus Atlanticus

AKA “The Blue Dragon” is a rare type of Sea Slug. Would make a great legendary!

12. Raven

Because they are different from crows.

13. Narwhal

Like Dewgong, but more epic.

14. Komodo Dragon

What type would it be?!?

And finally, the most legendary and rare of all the Pokemon…

What Pokemon would you like to see in the next game?
