    Default So you wanna be a master of obscure animals?!

    Yeah, I'm not sure if this goes here or not...

    Well, I don't think this counts as advertising, but I'm not sure.

    You guys know about On the Origin of Species? Well, I found an article that has a bunch of pokemon and what they actually are based off of. I figured you guys would be amazed and interested in this stuff, too, so here's the link: http://bogleech.com/pokemonzoo.html

    Again, I don't think this is advertising, since I'm just sharing interesting tidbits on pokemon, but if it is, let me know.

    Some of these have already been covered in our Origin of Species, but these have far more, albeit short, entries.

    Enjoy. :)

    Very interesting! And no, it's not advertising because you're not selling anything!

    That's awesome. I never would've guessed that Shuckle is possibly based on a real animal.

    I lol'd at Swampert's origin. He looks hideous.

    I thought shuckle was based on mold.
    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.

    That couldn't have ended well.

    "Amazingly, every massive blossom produces only one tiny seed, which sticks to the fur of small mammals in the vague hope of finding another Tetrastigma."

    What a sad, sad life that poor plant has D:
    Only one child that it would probably never ever meet! (yes, I know that this is the case with other plants, too, but still xD)

    And for the love of God, I would faint if a "real life" Kicketune appeared before me D:

    this is pretty good
    some of them i already knew, due to my love of biology, but i never would have picked huntail and gorebyss's inspirations even though i've seen images of them from when they washed up in the tsunami on phuket

    Nice find. I learned a bit more than I thought I would today.

    Very interesting. The animal that Phione/Fione was based off looks a LOT like the manaphy egg. Even the pokemon eggs are being based off things!

    Thanks to King of Jesus (Neodark) for the banner!

    They...really thought that Americans are in the dark about these animals/plants? The only one of those I didn't know about was the Kricketune one.

    I thought the same thing. Americans aren't stupid.

    I just didn't know about the Kricketune and Anorith/Armaldo. I knew all the others.

    True dat. I knew about Huntail and Vileplum and a few others, but to me, a lot of these were obscure.

    Also, good.

    When they make a pokemon based on a giant siphonophore, THEN I'll be impressed...
