    Default PokéTalk

    Okay, I've been searching up and down for a thread like this for several days actually, and I've yet to find one--so if there is one, redirect me towards it and close this thread.

    The idea of this thread is to come up with Pokémon terms you would use to substitute for language--like a form of slang, replacing cuss words and metaphors etc with Pokémon terms.

    Here are a few I've come up with:
    "She's so Purugly, her face is more scrambled than Missingno."
    "You're such an Ice-Vespiquen."
    "She's hot man, hotter than the Desert Resort!"
    "You Ditto! What, did you lose your way from The Daycare?!"

    So, translated these would probably be taken as:
    "She's so ugly, her nose is crooked and her eyes are too close together."
    "You're such an Ice-Queen."
    "She's hot man, like hotter than the desert!"
    "You whore! What, did you lose your way from the nearest whorehouse?!"

    What kind of slang and language would we use if we lived in the Pokémon world? Obviously we wouldn't use the B-word because dogs don't exist, so what would be used in its place? Would we say 'Hard as a Geodude' rather than 'Hard as a rock'? Be creative!

    Does Audino and Wynaut's names count as PokéTalk? Their names are puns for some English phrases.

    Thanks for reading.

    Why couldn't the Ponyta sing?

    Because he was a little Horsea!

    I claimed Chandelure, Levitate,Horn Drill and Dusk Stone!

    Which is entirely true right now.
