    Default Pokemon Based on Animals

    There used to be a list of pokemon based on animals, but now I can't find it. Does it still exist and can anyone point me to it? It had like:

    Elephant
    Phanphy
    Donphan

    The trouble with a list like this is that it's mostly speculation... and I say this as someone who writes a column on Pokémon origins. Sure, Phanpy and Donphan are elephants. No real question there. But it gets awkward when you get to Pokémon like Bulbasaur, or Psyduck, or Nidoran. No consensus on what any of those are based on.

    I believe it was removed due to the edit wars. Besides, the article was entirely speculative.

    The original page can still be found here:http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User:ElectAbuzzzz/Pok%C3%A9mon_designed_after_animals_or_plants

    Not that anyone should seek to add to it nor expect it to move back to the mainspace for all those fun little reasons that Bikini and Force Fire mentionned.

    I know it was mass speculation and not definitive at all, but I found it useful. Mostly for puns and visual jokes. Thank you!

    Any further discussions regarding this article would be speculative, and as previously stated, we don't do speculation. So I am closing this topic.
