Top 10 Animals That Should Have a Pokemon Based After Them

There are so many animals that should have a Pokémon based after them, but they don't. Tell me what they are.

The Top Ten

Red Panda The red panda (Ailurus fulgens), or also known as the red bear-cat or the red cat-bear, is a mammal native to the Eastern Himalayas and Southwestern China. Despite having the word "panda" in its name, it's not a panda. It's closely related to raccoons

Red pandas could be a grass/fairy type

fire type starter!

I'm currently creating my own Pokemon region and the fire type starter is one YAY! - moonwolf

I like Red Pandas! - turtwig

Blue Jay The Blue Jay (Latin name 'Cyanocitta Cristata') is a passerine bird in the Corvidae family . It's also known as a 'Jaybird' and it's name comes from it's noisy nature . It is native to North America and is in most of eastern and central US although some go to to other countries . Breeding populations more.

Funny how the top three are now Pokemon, I voted blue jay. It is one of my favorite birds, so it sounds like an awesome Pokemon. - Pikatwo

There should be Pokémon based after specific birds


Welcome to the Pokemon world, Oranguru. - Pikatwo


Welcome to the Pokemon world, Komala. - Pikatwo

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.

I’m even though psyduck literally has duck in its name, I’m still convinced that it is a platypus


Golden Frog
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.

An Ocelot Pokemon would be very cute - Neonco31


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

Bruh what. Forget rillaboom, Slaking is based partly on a gorilla that's why its speed is so high

Welcome to the Pokémon world, Rillaboom!

They just added a Gorilla in sun and moon

Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

Wonder what moves this Pokemon would use. Special ability: Mosquito Bite? - Kiteretsunu

A Spongebob Pokemon? - Cubea

Plus Weedle is named after a worm :/

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.

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

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

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

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.
