    I don't know if any of the seal Pokemon resemble leopard seals, so technically no.

    I love bats which obviously have been made into Zubat, Golbat, etc.

    Yes, there are cat and fox-like pokémon. I love Ninetales and Fennekin. I like Skitty and Purrloin too, but I don't like their evolutions or the other cats. So they could make a better cat, I guess.
    I'd also love a wolf pokémon.

    I'm a big fan of mustelids, especially otters, and as a result, many of my favorite Pokemon are mustelid-based. Floatzel and Dewott are both otters, and Mienshao is an ermine/stoat. I also like Linoone, which is a badger. I'm not really a fan of Furret though, I think it doesn't look anything like the animal it's based on, just a random fluffy thing, but that's just my opinion. I'm hoping really hard for a mustelid Pokemon in Gen 6, namely a winter stoat or a fire weasel.

    I have the same opinion as you, I never even saw Kangaskhan as even resembling a kangaroo, the only resemblance it has to one is the pouch, and even then, there are several mammals that have pouches, but it indeed resembles a dinosaur more than anything else, namely the kind that would attack Tokyo on a frequent basis.

    As for me, yep. OTTERS. F YEA.

    Too bad they ruined Dewott with its evolution. (Sorry, Winterdaze, but I am a Samurott hater...)

    Breloom also happily fills my kangaroo love (and I agree, Kangaskhan is pretty reptilian), and Cyndaquil my hedgehog love (I guess Shaymin too, but I really dont like Shaymin very much).

    Something I'd love to see is a Water/Grass type otter that's all marsh-inspired.
    I would like a marsh-inspired Otter as well, because otters are my favorite animal, and while Samurott isn't nessicary an otter Pokemon, I still like it, albeit not as much as Dewott.

    Also, Chespin is arguably a hedgehog as well, and I'm fine with Shaymin, even though I prefer the sky forme over the land one.

    Hedgehogs are another of my favourite animals, although I disagree about Cyndaquil - his elongated snout suggests that the primary inspiration for his design was an echidna, or spiny anteater.

    To date, land forme Shaymin is probably the most accurate-looking representation we have of a hedgehog, though Chespin ranks a bit higher on my favourites list. He's a much more stylised representation of the species than is Shaymin, but the chestnut connection makes it plausible and is, in my view, pretty inspired (given the obvious resemblence that chestnut shells bear to curled up hedgehogs).

    Pretty much everything that Robo-Floatzel mentioned here is true for me as well. My favorite #1 favorite animal, weasels, are already made into a Pokemon - Mienfoo & Mienshao!! and also love sea-otters so Buizel and Dewott are very high on my favorites. A fire-type mustelid would be an awesome addition to any team.

    I also love cats, there are plenty of them as well - Meowth, Persian, Skitty, Delcatty, Shinx, Luxio, Luxray, Glameow, Purugly, Purrloin, Liepard, and the now introduced Litleo. I really want now is water-type cat Pokemon.

    Also with Zangoose being a mixture of the two above, to me, sort of resembles half-cat and half-marten!!

    With my 3rd favorite animals, I believe also has been made into Pokemon, members of the Civet family (civets, genets, mangoose, binturongs, and meerkats). Watchog being the main one, half-meerkat.

    My favorite animals are penguins, owls and giraffes, so yeah they have (Piplup line, Hoothoot line and Giraffarig) and I love Empoleon, think Giraffarig is okay and like Noctowl though I could really do with another Owl evolution, especially a Barn owl, Snowy Owl or Stryx Owl of some kind. That would be awesome. Noctowl's Normal/Flying typing just didn't cut it for me. I require Dark/Flying, Psychic/Flying or Ice/Flying!!

    I like gorillas, but I have yet to see an actual gorilla Pokemon. Slaking doesn't count as it's technically supposed to be a sloth, and Darmanitan doesn't either.

    Nah, I'd say Slaking is definitely a gorilla Pokemon. It has little if any resemblance to sloths, extant or extinct, other than its laziness. I'd like to see another Gorilla Pokemon too though, since Slaking doesn't really capture any of their interesting qualities.

    Okay, let me rephrase then.

    I will admit that it is indeed very gorilla-like, and about as close as we'll currently get. But I would still rather have a 'true gorilla' Pokemon whose inspiration isn't also based on sloths, which aren't even primates.

    My least favorite animal are chihuahuas just because my mom raised them and I grew up with dozens of them in the house at one time. The eevees remind me ofthem.
    I love to battle, so please let me know if you want to battle - WIFI showdown or Pokemon online. I play mostly OU and Little cup, flat singles, triples, and rotations.

    Minccino actually made Chinchillas one of my favorite animals when I looked up what they were based on. Same with Shellos and Sea Slugs.

    Other than that, I was one of the people waiting for a penguin Pokemon before gen4, and Piplup's family was okay, if not falling just short of the obvious Ice association.

    I think Malamar is more of a squid than a cuttlefish, but it's still awesome.
