If you could make a Pokemon...

...what would you make? What would it look like? What could it do!? I'd probably just make Pikachu again.

Well, that's an extremely interesting question, given the myriad of possibilities one has to create a new Pokém-

... oh, nevermind then.

Koffing.

That's pretty much the formula Game Freak took.

Pikachu, Pichu, Plusle, Minun, Pachirisu (maybe a stretch), and Emolga.

Everyone forgets about Raichu...

A fighting-flying pokémon, i don't know if that's permitted in Pokémon rules, but hey, fuck it. It would look like a duck monk, or something like that. And fuck, am i the only one who took this seriously?
 

I would make his evolutions, but fuck it.

It would be a rock-type Pokemon that looks like Sandra Bullock in a dress made of granite.

I would call it...Sandra Bullrock.

Hmm. A ghost steel type, the first form would be an empty helmet with glowing eyes, the second would have gauntlets too, then for its third evolution you would have to level it up while it's holding either a sword, or a shield. If it's a sword the third form gets more offensive stats, and gets some armored legs connected to its invisible body, along with the sword. If you level up with the shield then you get more defensive stats, and the levitate ability, and the form has a breastplate and shield.

@The_Laughing_Man: I haven't played any Pokémon since Yellow. What's the worst Pokémon from the last generation?

Bugs are awesome, but centipedes and the lot are underrepresented. I think Scolipede is the only fully evolved one. I'd make a hard-hitting and fast, probably a purely bug type one. 4x weaknesses are a no-no.

Caterpie?
#12 Posted by Fallen189 (5050 posts) -

It'd be a koffing evolution that's steel. Steeling

@The_Laughing_Man: Man, and i thought that a Monk Duck would be dumb. What the actual fuck.

I'll take that as a compliment.

Awesome avatar, by the way. Uzumaki is freakin' weird. I love it.

Oh wait that's Garbodor.

Some sort of edible pokemon so if it loses a battle, you can just eat it.

The retreat cost totally ruins an otherwise constructed worthy card.

@Hailinel: It was a compliment! And yeah, Uzumaki is amazing, i'm going to see the movie this month, hopefully it's great.  The rest of Junji Ito's work is really good too! I love the story of the guy who spend years in his dreams, and the one about the honey that's so good, that all other types of food become horrible for you. And if you're into weird stuff, check out Shintaro Kago! His comics are pretty meta, and usually NSFW

Crack Rock. He throws bags of crack at people ,and pretends to be a rock to hide from the police.

Boobichu.

#23 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3683 posts) -

I would create the Dude, a pokemon whose TM is "white russians"

#24 Posted by mrpandaman (870 posts) -

A pre-evolution or evolution to Ditto that would still look like Ditto, but 3 times smaller or larger depending if it was pre-evolution or evolution.

#25 Posted by pyromagnestir (4333 posts) -

It would be an Uzi. I'd call it Uzimon. He would shoot bullets.

Dolphin (Water/Fire)
I know a water/fire combo might seem abit confusing, but my idea was for a dolphin with red rock lined scars (like the volcanic rifits on the ocean floor) on its sides where intese heat can eminate from.

Moves: tackle, heat wave, willowisp, overheat, water pulse, aqua jet, water sport, etc
 
Komodo dragon (Dragon/Poison)
This could be a wonderfull 3 stage dragon.

Moves: Bite, Crunch, Poison fang, slam, dragon rush, dragon claw, etc
 

Harpy (Flying/Fighting)  
Alot of cool possiblities with a flying/fighting pokemon, with the right ability this pokemon could be great.

Moves: peck, air slash, sky attack, close combat, double kick, low kick, etc
 

Stegosaurus (Ground/Steel)


This could be a very simple pokemon maybe a one of the new fossil pokemon (Hopefully with a unqiue T-rex pokemon). Nice sharp steel tail spikes and plates on its body its main attack/defense methods.

Moves: Iron tail, iron defense, roll out, magnitude, EQ, bite, slam, take down, etc

#27 Posted by NegativeCero (3024 posts) -

I would probably make an evolutionary form of Kangaskhan because it always bothered me that they would show it having a baby in the pouch who presumably just gets bigger.

#28 Posted by Hailinel (25201 posts) -

@MikeGosot: I was actually introduced to Uzumaki through the movie. I originally saw it back in college, and its level of bonkers is pretty high up there, too. I'll have to hunt down Ito's other works and give them a read. Thanks for the recommendations!

Probably something really dumb like a fridge...

Erm... how about an ice cream?
Wow it even looks fucking dumb - what about a giant stone nose blob with birds for ears and it somehow is growing hair? There is no chance this already exists.

Well shit.

#30 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -
@Hailinel: Good luck finding all of his works! Read Tomie too, the only supernatural element to that is a girl so beautiful that people always end up cutting her into pieces. She also looks like a girl i used to date, which made reading the manga even more weird!
#31 Posted by Spoonman671 (4744 posts) -

I'd probably make some kind of crazy fire-breathing pig that's also a wrestler.  Nintendo just isn't creative enough to come up with something like that themselves.

#32 Edited by pepperzz (160 posts) -

I would make an ice cream cone.

Oh wait...

Edit: Damnit someone beat me to it.

#33 Posted by xCompanionxCubex (156 posts) -

I made a flying horse pokemon when i was younger that was part ice part flying, it was white with stars on it as well (i was young and we used to create our own pokemon, he was also a legendary). If it's the case of making a pokemon real then it would be Espeon for me.

Mine would be a koffing evolution that's wood. Planking.

An electric/poison type Magikarp.

Or maybe a Steel type or a Dragon type Eeveelution.
