    Default Random things in Pokémon that remind you of other things and vice versa

    Sorry if there's another thread like this, I couldn't find one. Anyways, post stuff that remind you of Pokémon and vice versa.

    So, stuff that remind me of Pokémon:

    Umbrella Beach by Owl City

    "Sands (burmy sandy cloak) and gears (klink), oh how the daisies (sunflora, I know it's a sunflower and not a daisy but still...) bloom when chandeliers (chandelure) light up the engine room"

    Kirby (Jigglypuff)
    Horseshoe crabs (kabuto)

    Pokémon that remind me of other things:

    Noctowl (Owl City)
    Hoothoot (Owl City)
    Porygon (rubix cube)
    Sawsbuck (Harry Potter, don't question it)
    Shuppet (socks)
    Roserade (old ladies)

    There are probably more but that's all I can think of right now.

    This thread probably wasn't clear enough which is (probably) why no one's replying lol so you're supposed to just put stuff that remind you of Pokémon and vice versa. Like my examples above. Or you all understood it and it's just that no one likes this thread, oh well. The mods should just delete it, then.

    Im not sure why no-one else answered this either

    Musharna reminds me of an embryo

    Cofagrigus reminds me of a cellphone

    Ferrothorn reminds me of a UFO mothership and its baby UFOs

    Klink, Klang, and Klinklang remind me of the inside of a mechanical clock

    Cryogonal reminds me of a Christmas decoration

    And Reshiram and Zekrom remind me of the Blue-eyes White Dragon and Red-eyes Black Dragon from Yugioh

    Edit:

    Farfetch'd reminds me of a Roasted Pig with an apple

    Koffing reminds me of Ameno-Sagiri from Persona 4, he seems very similar to Koffing, becuase of his shape and the openings on his body, but he emits fog instead of poisonous gas

    And Hippowdon reminds me of a Bird Bath

    When someone mentions vitamins such as calcium, I'm thinking +10 Sp.Atk evs. Or when someone mentions words that sound like Pokemon such as combustion, I'm thinking about Combusken.

    Memes:
    *Cofagrigus = "Trollface".
    *Ditto and Wooper = "Poker face".

    Pokémon based off other Nintendo characters:
    *Treecko = Yoshi
    *Turtwig = Koopa Troopa
    *Piplup/Prinplup/Empoleon = King Dedede
    *Jigglypuff = Kirby
    *Heatran = Bowser (both can throw fires)
    *Throh = Dr. Mario with original Mario cap (he's look more like Dr Mario than regular Mario because of white robes)

    Third-party characters (of course including Katoki-designed mechs):
    *Roserade = Agent G (The House of the Dead series) or Richard Miller (Time Crisis)
    *Genesect = Zaku or Adele (Gundam series)
    *Roselia = Viper II/Cypher/Myzr series (Cyber Troopers Virtual-On series)
    *Sudowoodo = Mokujin (Tekken series)
    *Mudkip or Carnivine = Pac-Man (from Pac-Man franchise)
    *Victini = The Magician (The House of the Dead series)
    *Meloetta = Jasper Guns (The House of the Dead: Overkill)

    Can't remember them all, but here's some:

    Jigglypuff: Peaches. Something about its shape and colour.
    Horsea line: Toothpaste. The tail looks like a rolled up tube of toothpaste to me.
    Bidoof: Meatloaf. XD

    I have a lot of Pokémon-related nostalgia bombs. For instance, Christmas 1999, I got Pokémon Blue and my dad got Santana's Supernatural album. I'd play my game in the car while he played that album, and the two became forever interlinked in my mind. Any song off that album is enough to remind me of my blissful hours spent exploring the Kanto region for the first time. :)

    Actually, a lot of music from the very late '90s and early '00s tends to evoke that response, because Pokémon was such a driving force in my life at that time. I can't help but be reminded of it whenever I think of that time period.
    This is my DeviantArt. Pretty neat, huh?

    I saw an image of a Springhare a few days ago and I thought for a second it was a good photoshop or model of a realistic Pikachu". Looks far more like a Pikachu than actual Pikas do.
