Top Ten Animals that Need to Have Pokémon Based Off of Them

Dolphins will not be on this list, because there will obviously be one in Alola. Anywho, some animals don't have Pokémon based off of them. So, maybe Game Freak will see this list.

The Top Ten

1 Platypus Platypus The platypus, also known as the duck-billed platypus, is a semiaquatic egg-laying mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania.

If they make an Australia region for Gen 8, they better have a platypus as the water starter. I was thinking first it would start out as Water type, then the next two would be Water/Poison. Cute, slowly evolving into awesome.


Yes, there is Psyduck, but he's obviously a duck. It has duck in the name! Maybe a poison/water type. - TrueBlueHeroes

2 Ocelot Ocelot The ocelot, also known as the dwarf leopard, is a wild cat distributed extensively within South America including the islands of Trinidad and Margarita, Central America, and Mexico. It has been reported as far north as Texas.


Maybe a dark type. - TrueBlueHeroes

An Ocelot Pokemon would be very cute - Neonco31

3 Gorilla Gorilla Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa.

They just added a Gorilla in sun and moon

Not a Harambe Pokémon like those people are trying to get in Alola. But there's those new monkey ones, so does that count? Dunno. Most likely a grass or ground type. - TrueBlueHeroes

4 Badger Badger Badgers are short-legged omnivores in the family Mustelidae, which also includes the otters, polecats, weasels and wolverines.

Typhlosion is a honey badger

Linoone is sorta like a badger, but more like a raccoon. Speaking of tanookis... (yes we are talking about tanookis now.) Maybe a grass/dark type. - TrueBlueHeroes

5 Narwhal

Obviously a water type. Maybe a water/ice, even. - TrueBlueHeroes

6 Tanooki Tanooki

I love how the image for this is Tanooki Mario

Possibly flying or psychic type. - TrueBlueHeroes

7 Peacock Peacock The peafowl include two Asiatic bird species (the blue or Indian peafowl originally of India and Sri Lanka and the green peafowl of Myanmar, Indochina, and Java) and one African species (the Congo peafowl native only to the Congo Basin) of bird in the genera Pavo and Afropavo of the Phasianidae family, more.

Psychic/flying, most likely. - TrueBlueHeroes

8 Flamingo Flamingo Flamingos or flamingoes are a type of wading bird in the genus Phoenicopterus, the only genus in the family Phoenicopteridae.

There will probably be one in Sun and Moon, but maybe not. Possibly another water/flying. - TrueBlueHeroes

Shame to see it didn't make it to the Sun and Moon roster. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Mabye a Water-Flying or a Water-Steel even.ha a steel Flamingo!

9 Hummingbird Hummingbird Hummingbirds are birds from the Americas that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring 7.5–13 cm. they are the cutest birds in the world

Flying type. Obviously. - TrueBlueHeroes

Speed stats would be optimally high if we were to ever get a hummingbird Pokémon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 Lemur Lemur Lemurs are a clade of strepsirrhine primates endemic to the island of Madagascar. The word "lemur" derives from the word lemures (ghosts or spirits) from Roman mythology and was first used to describe a slender loris due to its nocturnal habits and slow pace, but was later applied to the primates on more.

Thinking more along the lines of A Dark type, gives it a mysterious nature.

Maybe a grass type. Heck, I'm not really sure. Any ideas, anyone? - TrueBlueHeroes

If it ever comes to show, I'm nicknaming it Julien. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Mabye a Dark-Grass or even a awesome Psychic-Fighting combo?

The Contenders

11 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

Ultra Sun and Moon might just be another chance to get a dolphin Pokémon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Cheetah Cheetah The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

Come, an electric/normal Pokemon

13 Venezuelan Poodle Moth Venezuelan Poodle Moth The Venezuelan poodle moth is a possible new species of moth discovered in 2009 by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in the Gran Sabana region of Venezuela.

We did get a Pokemon based on the bee fly. A poodle moth Pokemon would be very adorable, indeed. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I would LOVE one! A dark/flying type, maybe? - TwilightKitsune

14 Dalmatian Dalmatian The Dalmatian is a breed of large dog, noted for its unique black or liver spotted coat and mainly used as a carriage dog in its early days.

There are a lot of dogs but no Dalmatians?

15 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

There's a lot of human like pokemon,they even have there own egg group.

16 Giraffe Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.

There is already Girafarig but I agree that another one would be really cool

17 Anteater Anteater Anteater is a common name for the four extant mammal species of the suborder Vermilingua commonly known for eating ants and termites.

We already have Heatmor as the designated anteater Pokémon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

18 Mule
19 Spix's Macaw
20 Panther Panther The cougar, also commonly known as the mountain lion, puma, panther, or catamount, is a large felid of the subfamily Felinae native to the Americas.
21 Elephant Shrew Elephant Shrew
