6 Pokemon Teams Inspired by Popular Anime Series

Jake Young

1. Attack on Titan

undefined

Cubone: Eren Jaeger, a young man traumatized by the death of his mother, but determined to continue fighting for humanity’s freedom. He seems most comfortable surrounded by oversized bones.

Greninja (shiny): Mikasa Ackerman, the badass with a red scarf and elite ninja skills. The Internet’s favorite character.

Smoochum: Armin Arlert, the tiny weak thing with a mop of blonde hair (NAILED IT).

Regigigas: Gigantic, unknowable… and hilariously slow, just like the Colossal Titan.

Bastiodon: If there are two things that best represent this series it’s “large walls” and “unsettling grinning faces”.

Doublade: The preferred weapon of the Scouting Legion are twin swords. I tried to find a pokemon that looked like a giant boxcutter, but we’ll probably have to wait until gen 8 before they get that desperate for ideas.

2. Free!

undefined

Vaporeon- Milotec- Dragonair- Swanna: 4 Breathtakingly Beautiful Aquatic Creatures.

Machoke: Totally rocks a Speedo. Perfectly hairless body.

Lickitung: Most of the audience of this show.

3. Kill La Kill

undefined

Staraptor: Ryuko Matoi, the hot-blooded protagonist out to avenge her father’s murder. Besides their similar coloration and distinctive red streak, Staraptor and Ryuko are both looked down upon by elitists.

Cobalion: Satsuki Kiryuin rules the Honnoji Academy with her unflappable resolve, high class sophistication, and nigh-invincible eyebrow game. It only fits that she be represented by this cooly refined member of the legendary “Swords of Justice”.

Scizor: The key to everything lies in the secrets of the red Scissor Blade.

Mega-Aggron: Ira Gamagori is the sworn shield of Satsuki, has a thing for being covered in spikes, and is built for taking a LOT of punishment.

Scrafty: This pokemon has an existentially serious issue with holding onto its clothing, much like everybody in this series.

Ludiculo: The plot.

4. Sailor Moon

undefined

Clefable: One of the first pokemon ever created, Clefable literally transforms using the power of the moon… stone.

Sylveon: This fairy-type is capable of producing endless amounts of pretty ribbons and bows that appear out of nowhere, just like in Sailor Moon‘s transformation sequences.

Mega-Gardevoir: Achieves highest power level by putting on a white dress.

Roserade: You know who else uses roses as a weapon and covers their face? Tuxedo Mask.

Meowth: Essential to the Sailor Moon lore is her guardian cat named Luna, who can speak perfect english and has a gold icon in the middle of her head. Meowth, that’s right indeed.

Solrock: Shit, why is that there? I meant to put in Lunatone! How do I undo this? Oh fuck… fuck fuck fuck fuck SHIT.

5. The Films of Studio Ghibli

undefined

Snorlax: Big, fuzzy, and looks incredibly comfortable to sleep on? It can be Snorlax or Totoro.

Emboar: A badass pig with a smoking problem aka Porco Rosso.

Golurk: An ancient piece of technology you feel kind of sad for? I’m pretty sure it’s Golurk, or the robots from Castle in the Sky 

Venipede: Not since Nausicaa have I been so intimidated by giant bugs like this.

Xerneas: Ok come on, that’s literally the giant nature god from the end of Princess Mononoke. We’re onto you, Nintendo.

Phantump: This one is a little less specific, but you have to acknowledge the thematic overlap with innocent-yet-spooky nature spirits and (if you believe the pokedex from Pokemon X/Y) children that die tragically.

6. Dragonball Z

undefined

Mega-Ampharos: FLOWING LOCKS OF ELECTRICALLY CHARGED HAIRRRRRR!

Mega-Mewtwo Y: FRIEZA’S FINAL FORMMMMMM!

Mega-Lucario: SOMETHING TWELVE-YEAR-OLDS THINK IS COOLLLLLLL!

Mega-Manetric: EVEN MORE SPIKY BLONDE HAIRRRRR!!!!

Mega-Rayquaza: A CHARACTER THAT’S SO POWERFUL IT MAKES THE WHOLE ENTERPRISE SEEM LAUGHABLY RIDICULOUSSSSS!

Sunkern: Yamcha.

Bonus. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

undefined

Yamask: Almost all the events in this series can be traced back to the uncovering of a mysterious Stone Mask.

Blaziken: A giant fire-breathing chicken? MAGICIAN’S RED!

Escavalier: Pointy armored knight? SILVER CHARIOT!

Jynx: An unfortunate caricature of a woman and/or minority.

Hitmonchan: ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA!!!!!!!

Hitmonlee: MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA!!!!!!!!!

This Inkblot Test Will Assess Your Personality

You are… Dark

The things that you saw in the test cards were mostly dark things, which means you are a highly-intelligent and introspective person. You are known to be the perfectionist at work/school or among friends and always set really high standards for yourself and others, which sometimes might appear to others as being cold-hearted. You know you’re not like that, so what about lowering your standards a little bit and stop critiquing yourself that much? Others would be lucky to be as smart and deep as you are. When in doubt, try to focus on the positive side of things, even if this will be hard or seem superficial: trust us, practice makes perfect!
