Pokemons are popular cartoon creatures of all shapes and sizes. The trainers raise and command them to grow and level up. These pocket monsters are everywhere, such as in a tv show, video games and toys. If you are a Pokemon lover, check out these Top 12 Pokemon Characters In Real Life that we have listed down.
Lucario, the blue Pokemon who is so popular aside from Pikachu, got its spot as a playable character in Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. This bipedal best resembles the Egyptian wolf, which was also an inspiration for the ancient Egyptian god of funerals and the dead, Anubis.
2. HONEY BADGER
Typhlosion. This fan-favorite Volcano Pokemon, known to create explosive blasts of fire, represents the equally ferocious honey badger. These little fellas love honey but can also shoot a liquid so pungent that it could compete with skunks. These feisty animals also attack lions and leopards when threatened. So, beware of the honey badgers!
3. ASIL CHICKEN
Blaziken is the only fully-evolving starter Pokémon who appeared in anime before its debut generation. Blaziken’s signature move is the iconic Blaze Kick, and best represents Asil chicken. They are the most aggressive breed and commonly used for cockfighting.
Next is Luxray, the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 523. It can also spot prey behind solid objects using its gold-gleaming eyes. Its powers and shy nature best represent the real-life lynx, a solitary wild cat with its own superpower. Although it does not have gleaming vision, it can detect a mouse from a distance of 76 meters.
5. CHINESE DRAGON
Rayquaza, a Legendary Pokemon and internal master amongst the weather trio. It best represents the Chinese dragon, believed to control the weather and thus determine the country’s crop yield every year. Rayquaza is heavily associated with power and success. Also used as a symbol to represent imperial power in China.
6. WELSH DRAGON
Charizard is the unforgettable Fire/Flying Pokemon voted as the most popular Generation I Pokémon. It is the only one aside from Mewtwo with two Mega Evolved forms. This Pokemon best represents the Welsh dragon, a Celtic Mythology figure known for its fierce yet benevolent character. Now a symbol of Wales’s national flag.
7. SPLENDID LEAF FROGS
Greninja—the ninja frog known for its swift movements and ability to throw water stars that cut through metal. This water/dark Pokemon most resembles the Splendid Leaf Frogs. These Central American amphibians are recognizable for their bluish-green coloring and golden stripes. Just like Greninja, they are nocturnal and thrive in moist habitats.
8. BARN OWL
Speaking of nocturnal, we have Rowlet next. This chunky fella hides underneath some sharp feathers thrown at opponents during battle. A dual-type grass/flying Pokemon that best resembles the barn owl, which are also known for their round faces and nocturnal lifestyle. Their feathers in contrast are extremely soft to help them hunt silently at night.
Tyranitar is one of the nine pseudo-legendary Pokémon and the only Pokémon in general to have a dual-type Rock/Dark combination. This character mostly resembles the prehistoric sea monster Godzilla, known to emerge from the depths of the Japanese sea due to nuclear radiation. Both Tyranitar and Godzilla are known for their immense power and they are also known for taking their time in terms of speed.
In contrast to a low speed stat, our next Pokemon Jolteon has the highest base Speed stat of all Evolutions. This Lightning Pokemon best represents the cheetah, the fastest land animal in the world. Both share a similar coat color and the phrase “lightning speed”.
11. DEVIL FROG
Bulbasaur is one of the three classic starter Pokemon that later transforms into the formidable Venusaur—and a fan favorite for a reason. It evolves relatively faster than other Pokemon and is extremely easy to care for. Bulbasaur is based on the Devil frog, a prehistoric frog that lived 70 million years ago and believed to have weighed a whopping 4.5 kg!
12. GREAT HAMMERHEAD SHARK
Next is a pseudo-legendary Pokemon known for flying at the speed of sound, Garchomp. If that was not impressive enough, Garchomp also has the highest base HP stat amongst the nine pseudo-legendary Pokémon. Despite its type as a dragon/ground Pokemon, Garchomp’s tail, head shape, and color suggest it best resembles the great hammerhead shark.
