I always nickname my pokemon after humans that they look like, so i thought why not make a game out of it? The rules are simple, Ill say the name of a pokemon and then the next poster says which famous human that pokemon reminds them of and why and that poster names another pokemon. Simple right?

Example

Aipom

George Bush, because I think he resembles a monkey and for satirical reasons

Mr.Mime


The first pokemon up is none other than Mr.Mime!

I think Mr. Mime reminds me of Drew Carey... -_-; I'm not entirely sure why....

Here's an easy one, since this one was actually based off of a real-life person (and the creators of Pokemon nearly got sued over it, lol).

Alakazam

Hrm... I don't know who Joe Boxer is, but I never did keep up with pop culture too well, lol.

Actually, the Pokemon Kadabra was called "Un-Geller" in Japanese (that's one Romanization of the phonetics... I'm sure it's represented slightly differently on other sites). It was meant as a pun on the name of self-proclaimed psychic and (alleged) spoon-bender Uri Geller. Geller threatened to sue Nintendo, as Kadabra was meant to be a "good" version of him, whereas Alakazam was a "bad" version of him. He claimed that both of them turned him into an occult evil character (lol) and that Nintendo ought to pay him royalties for using his likeness. They both bear a striking resemblance to him, especially when he's performing, as he holds two spoons over his head. He was going to sue Nintendo for the outrageous amount of 60 million British Pounds! Of course, the judge threw his case out.

I'm not sure why, but I couldn't help thinking of that guy that plays Will from the Will and Grace show (I really don't like that show, btw >_<)

How about Cubone?
