If pokemon were real?
Hey, my first thread! Anyway, how do you guys think life would be like if all the pokemon from the regions were real? Give your opinions and maybe post a story about what it might be like.

Maybe I'd conquer the world using Arceus and smite down those who oppose me!

Patrick March 3rd, 2013 7:38 AM

Not too long? You trying to kill me? ;_;

For a short answer, let's assume Pokemon were introduced into our world since the beginning of time (as introducing them now would be a disaster, and I've already written about that).

Life... would be about the same as it is now. Except with Pokemon. Wow, well that was sort of underwhelming. :\

Hello Mangofive!

I think i would be great! I have actually made a pokemon in real life short film :) This is my first post and i have to post 15 to share the video to you guys. I will post it then :)

It would be so bad lol. There'd be too much "Team Rocket" people trying to steal and whatnot. But... It'd be cool because I can own a Pikachu. ^_^

D Dog master of war March 3rd, 2013 4:35 PM

would meet a Deoxys <3....and love all my Pokemon

Colethebull March 3rd, 2013 4:59 PM

Life would pretty much be the same as in the games. In a small way, animals in our world are similar to pokemon in the games and TV show. People and pokemon would get along, although some would fight and abuse them. I dont think we would battle pokemon, because there would be some sort of PETA organisation (or PETP) putting a stop to it. We don't battle animals today. That's just my opinion though.

TheRabid March 3rd, 2013 5:05 PM

We humans eat cows, Miltank is a cow, we would eat Pokemon.

Spaniard.King March 3rd, 2013 5:53 PM

i'd obviously be the pokemon champoin and demolish all those weaker, just because am beast. just kidding. probably just own a gible and we'd battle and what not. i can't even imagine how a pokemon would look if it was real like actually real in front of you not in drawing, cartoon mode. hmmmm makes me wonder.

Mangofive March 4th, 2013 9:55 AM

Sorry dbp, I am going to change that. You can write as much as you want (that goes for everybody now) so enjoy!
And to WogCA,

I mean without the team rocket, cause they would be causing a whole bunch of problems :3

If Pokemon were real... as long as we stayed in town near higher populations we would be fine. It would be incredibly dangerous to try and train a pokemon. Have you ever tried to train a dog? It's hard to teach it to sit. And you want to teach a Poochyena to Tackle something?

Life isn't like a cartoon. If Pikachu decides to Thundershock you... you're gonna be lying on the ground, randomly shaking.

If Charmander lights you on fire with an Ember... you best put it out or you are going to be a Kentucky Fried Human.

If Bulbasaur gets mad and attacks you with Razor Leaf... you're going to need a lot of bandaids.

If Squirtle hoses you down with a Water Gun that has more power than a fire hydrant.... you will not be getting up anytime soon and on top of that you will smell like turtle vomit, cause where else does the water come from?

I've thought long and hard about what it would be like if Pokemon were real. It would be dangerous. Oh! Another analogy...

People run around screaming and swatting at Bees like they're going to die or something. If you swat at a Beedrill... *plays funeral theme*

CarcharOdin March 4th, 2013 10:22 PM

My two cats would probably be Purrloins and they'd do the exact same thing they do now...

Sit around all day and do nothing.

Isseubnida March 5th, 2013 12:13 PM

I shudder at the thought of real-life Jynx...


Buggles March 5th, 2013 6:09 PM

If I could have my own bug-type insectarium, I think I'd be in heaven. Scizor would go EVERYWHERE with me.

Venitardus March 5th, 2013 6:20 PM

Life would be different for how i see it. I mean, it might be the same as the games and anime series kind of. Of course, if pokemon survived as long as we did, then life would be normal then. It would be sweet, but frightening though if pokemon lived in our real world.

Omastar March 23rd, 2013 4:55 PM

If Pokemon were real, I would probably live in Lavender Town with my darling Cubone. I've adored Cubone as a little kid, and cannot see myself with any other pokemon out of all of them :)

LittleCubone March 23rd, 2013 5:05 PM

Awwww, you can't live without me? Hehe. If Pokemon were real... we'd be talking Pokemon in the real work. As for the united states... I think you could find Cubones in the deserts of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona

Ephemeral Euphoria March 23rd, 2013 5:16 PM

I'd take to the skies on a giant ass flying type like Ho-Oh or Rayquaza, I can't even begin to imagine how much adrenaline would be going through me at the time.

droomph March 23rd, 2013 5:24 PM

I would like to have a Grovyle, but for the most part I don't think life would be any different. Animals can kill you now, you just don't aggravate them.

And keep in mind normal animals can still survive, because weapons from both sides are equally strong. There are animals just like Pokémon, you know? Pistol shrimps are strong comparatively, I would think there would be a bigger version of it.

So no disasters.

StinkomanFan March 23rd, 2013 5:33 PM

I've had exact dream about this.
First off, the amount of missing people cases would sky-rocket, between Jynx and other human-like pokemon being mistaken for people, to things like Gotholita and Hypno kidnapping.
Secondly, religious loons would use them to either argue or prove their respective religions, not to mention the church would have a conniption and probably execute the poor kid who DARED fight Arceus/The Legendary Gerbils/Groudon and Kryogre/etc.
Thirdly, wars. Lots and lots of wars. Nuclear capability will be a thing of the past when any psychic, ghost, or dark type can just disable EVERYTHING, and instead of Nuclear Capability it'll be Poke-pability.
Fourth, Scientific community in SHAMBLES. The laws and theories of physics, electricity, chemistry, evolution, EVERYTHING being questioned. Not to mention how the findings of Steven Hawking, Einstein, Thomas Edison, and many more will be ignored for the endless knowledge of psychic types (Kadabra ALONE could probably wipe the floor with Deep Blue in a chess match)
Fifthly, animals would, more than likely, become extinct for the more superior Pokemon. Sure, some may slowly evolve (Darwin's version, not Oak's) into types of Pokemon, but in the long run, they will cease to exist.
And finally, The Olympics will be done with Pokemon.

deathbymanga March 23rd, 2013 7:10 PM

I had this fantasy a lot, and the most common involves all the animals on earth turning into Pokemon. And since humans did exist in Pokemon, we humans remained the same.

Since I live on a farm, I took the liberty of figuring out what pokemon would end up there:

I had Sheep (Mareep, Flaafy), goats (Ampharos, I know it is the evolution, but if you see a goat trying to climb a gate door, you'll see the resemblance every time.), Pigs (I was going to say Spoink or Grumpig, but I have to say Swinub, mainly because of the other animal we have on our farm), Yaks (Piloswine, which means we would have to have the baby forms as well, which would be piglets, though I do believe that we must have at least one Grumpig, as he have two very adult Pigs on our farm as well.) Chickens (Torchic and Combusken), Ducks (Ducklett), Geese (Swanna, my call because we don't have a goose pokemon, and it makes sense as to why our geese raise our ducks like their own babies.) Two dogs (A growlith and a Mightyana (Different species)), and a swarm of Meowths and skitties and their evolved forms.

My story when I would do these things was that I would take a young Swinub with me after the world got turned into Pokemon, in hopes of finding out what other Pokemon live out there. I soon come across a Cubone and an elekid and learn about how there is a small community growing already of Trainers who want to be the best because they can now make a living off of Pokemon.

Of course, when I get there I make it a point that even if we adopted the economy of Pokemon, it wouldn't work. As we would need to rebuild our entire infrastructure around Pokemon, and the rest of the world wasn't ready for such change. not to mention the problems with the whole free health care for Pokemon thing. And the PETA would have a huge fit about the glorification of dog fighting.

And my memory stops there as I usually start daydreaming about the possibilities of a Luigi game

LittleCubone March 23rd, 2013 7:15 PM

Stinkoman. I love you. Pokemon in real life isn't a kid's fantasy. I'm glad you take the fact that Pokemon would break scientific laws. I don't see any human being superior to any Pokemon. It'd be really hard to train. Could you imagine pissing off your Ursaring or Sharpedo? And that's not mentioning dragon type.

Magykx March 23rd, 2013 7:23 PM

That would be awesome. I would love to have a Ninetales and Arcanine. Also, if the regions were real, I'd probably want to live in Sinnoh or Hoenn.

Elaitenstile March 23rd, 2013 8:54 PM

I would faint in joy. Maybe I'll become a Pokémon trainer, and my goal would be to catch Celebi!

Pichu2Pikachu2Raichu March 24th, 2013 1:03 PM

I would get a Pichu and show it off to girls. LOL

Pichu, my most favorite and by far the cutest Pokemon of all.
