Greetings

In this thread we will discuss what pokemon nintendo has choosen to "personify" something of resemblance or meaning. Me using this word as lightly as possible because i am unsure of the word i am looking for, we shall open the discussion up with what certain pokemon resemble and the possible meaning behind others. Then we shall discuss possible future pokemon and what to expect from them


opening up with the simple pokemon palkia
(discuss what it may stand for or resemble and pick a poke)

Palkia is supposed to personify the being and essence of space itself!

Pachirisu symbolizes joy and love as well as always being positive!

I choose you Weedle!

Weedle symbolizes innocence, with a bite if you get it mad!

I choose Magikarp.

Weedle symbolizes the fact that looks can be deceiving. It's small, but it can poison you!

Go, Suicune!

Magikarp most likely resembles weakness, while it evolving shows that weakness can become great strength over time, I think...

As for Suicune, I'm at a loss. Probably something to do with purity and the being of water.

Shaymin symbolizes the Siren. Cute on the outside but inside it is powerful and dangerous.

I choose Wingull..

Wingull is, quite obviously, a seagull, but I'm not sure about any other meaning to it. I'll give one, though: The reason they made it is to make players more annoyed with another Pokémon similar to Magikarp and Tentacool. >.<

...Absol.

Lawl DON'T EVER INSULT TENTACOOL IN FRONT OF ME! =3
Absol is like the darkness. He is your worst fear when you don't know it but once you do can be a great companion. Like the HunchBack of Notre Dame..

Lucario..

Magikarp shows that no matter how weak, small we are, everyone has potential inside them waiting to come free, you just need to learn to use it!

Rapidash.

Rapidash represents the intensity and beauty of fire. It moves so quickly that heat actually radiates from it's body.

I choose Ho-oh to discuss next.

(couldn't have said that better myself, Kuggles! *gives a Goron Amber Candy*)

Ho-Oh represents a rainbow of Love and Peace.

hm...

Bulbasaur.

I think Ho-Oh Symbolizes the sun... (Don't hurt me) It shows heat and fire in a radiant, beautiful form which is only matched by that of the sun..
Bulbasaur represents a seed. As you give it water and care, it will grow into a flower. It is just the beginning of a Circle of Life..
Onix.

Just a plant/animal hybrid; a bit of a stereotype, if you ask me.

...Blaziken.

(The reason I held off on Blaziken for my first post is because I figured that most already know what it's based on. Ah, whatever.)

EDIT: Damn, beaten. >.<
