What would be one thing you would research if you were a pokemon professor? It could be anything pokemon-related: Evolution, Eggs, Possible new species of pokemon, etc.

For me, I would probably research evolution. I mean, in my opinion, evolution is probably the most intriguing subject in pokemon. How does pokemon evolve, and why do they evolve and transform their physical appearance to a particular type of pokemon? Like for example, Remoraid undergoes a pretty big transformation, when it evolves to an octillery.

I would also ask questions like, why CAN'T some pokemon evolve, and why do only certain pokemon evolve with stones...and more stuff like that.

I think I would research how Pokemon live and interact with each other, rather like Professor Birch (who is my idol and kind of hot XD). It interests me how every aspect of life works together and fits into the ecosystem in some way~

Prof.Birch researches habitats. Prof. Oak is the one who researches how Pokemon live and interact with each other and with people.

Anyways, I would research Legendary Pokemon. Just the mysteries of the Pokemon, their power, etc. It all just interests me. Right now I'm trying to figure out what exactly makes Moltres, Articuno and Zapdos, legendary.

Sorry, your information is incorrect.
He is known to be more outgoing than the other Pokémon Professors, and oftentimes his research takes him outdoors. His field of study is primarily how Pokémon behave in the wild.

He most definitely researches Pokemon interaction. Oak concentrates on human-Pokemon relations.

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Professor_Birch

Professor Birch (Japanese: オダマキ博士 Dr. Odamaki) is the resident Pokémon Professor (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Professor) of Littleroot Town (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Littleroot_Town) and the Hoenn (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hoenn) region. He specializes in Pokémon (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_%28species%29) habitats (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Habitat) and distribution.

Although in Background Information, it says right what I quoted. :|

I wouldn't mind studying habitats, though- it kind of goes hand-in-hand with what I am interested in.

I would study stuyff like Natures, E.Vs, Ivs, etc. It seems so interesting and not explained much in the anime or games.

I'm a small details kind of person, so for me it would probably be rarities and breeding.

What makes 2 Pokémon optimal for breeding? Why do some Pokémon in the same egg group hate breeding with each other? Where are certain Pokémon found? Why is this Pokémon more rare than that Pokémon? Which Pokémon get lured out by specific music and why do they only come out for that tune?

I've always loved myths about pokemon so that is probably what I would study. Myths like Ho-Oh's Burned Tower or about myths about the legendary pokemons.

I would study Pokemon habitats and Pokemon relationships in the wild. I would be the adventurous Professor who travels the world in order to study and research Pokemon habitats and relationships. Oh, and I would like to complete the Pokedex along the way. Of course it would be a Pokedex of my own creation, designed to satisfy my curiosity.

I would study types. Why Pokemon are certain types, the reason certain types are weak to others (Not like electric shocks water, but like the actual biological reason why a water typed Pokemon is weaker to electric attacks than a fire type.) the reason for types. what causes types, ect.

I'll try to research more about the Unown.

Genetics has always sounded like a really good field of science to get into studying in the real world: why not transfer it over to Pokemon? One could see whether Pokemon genes made them more or less receptive to certain types of medicine/berries etc. and could provide scientific data for things like Base Stats in the games. It's interesting that the games have the EV/IV/Base Stats system as a rudimentary form of genetics, but if Pokemon did exist in real life, I doubt the situation would be quite so mechanical, hence the need for a field of science dedicated to it!

I would probably have a job that spans multiple fields. Ones that come to mind would be traveling from area to area studying pokemon and people of the land in depth the history of pokemon and their involvement in events with that region. The evolution of pokemon through out time, like when Zekrom and Reshiram were one entity and are not two, and I would try and decipher what is behind this and if it is possible for this to happen with other pokemon not only to split but to merge like Beldum does to Metang and Metang to Metagross(according the the dex). This would go hand in hand with studying the legends/myths of pokemon lure that happened in the region. I would also try and catalog all pokemon I come around, what their habits are, where they live, their attacks, abilities, its relation with other pokemon in its community.

I like all the Professors...

So if I was also a Professor, I'd study types, evolution and species of Pokemon in general.

Probably the history surrounding individual pokémon, stuff like that :)

If I were a professor, I would research all the Pokemon. I would observe their behaviors and how certain ones react to another one. It would actually be kind of fun to do that.

Timbjerr
April 2nd, 2011, 06:38 PM
Similar to Prof. Birch, I'd be a field researcher observing pokemon behavior and habitats. Overall, I'd much rather be out doing observation than in a lab running tests. XD

I would be a Pokemon Professor that could actually battle Pokemon and research competitive battling, and thats the only thing I'm concerned with at the moment.

...

Okay, that sort of makes me heartless, right? I mean, I'm not really that cold....what first came to mind was possibly studying Pokemon evolution, and then I would love to partner up and make allies with some legendary Pokemon and whatnot...after all, I would hate being trapped in my lab all day. xD; I'd be more of a nature professor than anything else, get some fresh air and whatnot.

Well, there's a couple things that spark interest to research.

1.) The reason why some humans have abilities comparable to powerful Pokémon like Alakazam (Sabrina) while others are comparable to Spinda at best, and cases where humans manage to completely transform into Pokémon, such as the said cases of Kadabra and Drifloon.

2.) Why Pokémon that seem to be biologically capable of breeding, such as Crogunk and Politoed, would rather breed with Mr. Mimes and Shellos rather then each other in captivity, and why Nidoking and Nidoqueen completely refuse to breed altogether.

1.) The reason why some humans have abilities comparable to powerful Pokémon like Alakazam (Sabrina)Maybe some people like Sabrina and her father were born with the gift of being mentalist.

cases where humans manage to completely transform into Pokémon, such as the said cases of Kadabra and Drifloon.
IMHO, I think the Pokedex data on that is total BS.


2.) Why Pokémon that seem to be biologically capable of breeding, such as Crogunk and Politoed, would rather breed with Mr. Mimes and Shellos rather then each other in captivity, and why Nidoking and Nidoqueen only with dittoYou mean Egg Groups? That's what the whole breeding system is based on.

You mean Egg Groups? That's what the whole breeding system is based on.

Apparently, egg groups aren't entirely canonal. Mewtwo returns shows that Nidoqueen is capable of breeding with Rhyhorn, meaning it would technically be in either the monster or ground groups, which isn't reflected in the games, along with game inconsistencies such as Seviper breeding with Zangoose (though as Mystery Dungeon shows that some pairings can grow attached to one another to break down their rivalries to an extent, this is more of a biological issue then anything else) and other unlikely cases such as Wailord and Diglet, and Gallade and Muk (the later of which cannon breed with Garbor, a Pokémon with similar origin and characteristics).

If i were to be a pokemon professor, then i think i'll be making an artificial pokemon (like mewtwo and deoxys) but will separate its body parts into five different pokemons. With Dragon, Fire, Water, Grass, Electric types, respectively. If all were to combine, they will produce one pokemon that will have a ??? type and will be able to learn moves of the types mentioned.

I will make a two codes, one for combining and one for uncombine.

I think I would research Pokemon Communication, all pokemon can understand each other while they can only say their names how do they know what they are saying.... that kind of thing.

I would research how the regions were formed, and how Pokemon Differ from each.

Using the anime as your basis there? Hooey, them's dangerous waters to be treadin' round here, boy.

In other words, go off the games for your canon. The anime contradicts the games, not the other way around. As for Zangoose and Seviper, that's a little thing we like to call Foe Yay.


Hmmm... what would I study? Um... how about female Gym Leaders?

No?

OK then, perhaps Pokemon types would be the kind of field I'd go into. Why are some types superior to others in nonsensical ways, and why are some not super-effective when logically they would be? Why is Poison so weak? Why were Poison and Bug once super-effective against each other but no longer are? What's up with the Normal type? What happened to ???-type? Are there any other types out there?* That's what I'd be interested in.


*I actually read an interview where the creators said they don't plan to add any new types but always could if they feel it necessary. So don't count that possibility out just yet.

Meh, there's still a bunch of inconsistencies that the games mechanics bring about breeding, such as Kangaskan being born with a baby in its pouch, Nidoking/queen being unable to breed despite the Pokédex stating things about their young, why Magnemite cannot breed with their own kind, etc. that have yet to be explained by mere "Egg groups".

...

That being said, I rather focus on the apparent "rebirth" of human beings as Yanmask then why Huntail cannot breed with Elektross.

I would probably research new Pokemon, competitive Pokemon battling, and Pokemon evolutions. (and hopefully make something that lets Trubbish evolve into something less ugy:\)

The Nidoking/Nidoqueen breeding problem everyone is mentioning would be pretty interesting to research. Not to mention how in all that is Black and White is HSOWA even possible. I mean, wouldn't the Skitty get crushed by the Wailord during..mating? Would there even be adequate space?#_#

On other note, it is quite strange about how various humans are more powerful than certain Pokemon (I'd rather have Sabrina by my side than Luvdisc any day of the week millenia). :cer_love: I mean, her Psychic powers would afford her an outstanding Special Attack, where even Luvdisc wouldn't stand a chance! Inquiries into how humans "transform" into Pokemon would also be interesting, especially concerning all of the bizarre Mystery Dungeon accounts. >_>

Hmmm... what would I study? Um... how about female Gym Leaders?

No?

Yes. I would research exactly why nearly all Pokemon girls are so distractingly hot. Professor Juniper and Assistant Professor Fennel would accompany me. :3 Ugh, I sound like Jiraiya the Toad Sage now... >_> *runs*

What would be one thing you would research if you were a pokemon professor? It could be anything pokemon-related: Evolution, Eggs, Possible new species of pokemon, etc.

For me, I would probably research evolution. I mean, in my opinion, evolution is probably the most intriguing subject in pokemon.

I would also ask questions like, why CAN'T some pokemon evolve, and why do only certain pokemon evolve with stones...and more stuff like that.




As for what I'd actually research with a more scientific basis...probably the mechanism behind the Pokemon Center machines that heal Pokemon, or even the Pokemon Storage System and/or the Poke Ball model itself (energy conversion, habitat creation within a Poke Ball, etc.). A similar area of interest would be Berries, medicinal Herbs, and manmade healing items, such as Potions, Ethers, and Berries. Furthermore, the effect that Vitamins have on catalyzing the growth of Pokemon in terms of battling statistics would be a captivating subject as well. How do the various foods in the Pokemon world metabolize within the body of a Pokemon? :)

Additionally, I would also like to discover the link between genetics and Hidden Power, and comparatively Pokemon location and Secret Power. I feel that they would be intriguing topics to broach as well.

In conclusion, I'd be a Pokemon Professor who specializes in the medicinal aspects of the Pokemon scientific fields, while taking time to explore an array of other sciences as well.

This is hard :/ If I were to be a pokemon professor I would prefer to research multiple things. But pokemon gene research would be cool as well as how they interact in the environment. An egg professor also sounds cool and is the professor I would most likely be.

I'd like to investigate the interactions between trainers and Pokemon... the connections between the two, what causes Pokemon to obey or not obey commands, how Pokemon gauge the skill and capability of their trainers, and so on.

Or I could just research Shadow Pokemon in preparation to revive Cipher under my command.
