According to the professors, pokemon aren't just for battling -- they can be pets. If Pokemon were real, what pokemon as a pet would you like to have? Would you prefer pokemon as pets, or for battling purposes?

Just nothing too...out of a question like a rayquaza or Groudon or something. =( Think about the house pets we have -- like cats, dogs, goldfish, etc.

I would like Chikorita or Joltik as my pet after I'm retired as a trainer. Eevee is also nice for a pet.

Would a Shinx count? I would love to have a Shinx as a pet. Also I'd like to have an Eeveelution as a pet such as Umbreon or Vaporeon.

I'd like a Houndour/Houndoom or a Zangoose as a pet. I think they'd make for good guards.

Eevee is a great Pokemon to be my pet. And if the time comes, I'd evolve it into Umbre/Vapo/Jolteon.

A Delcatty would be quite nice. None of the other feline Pokemon, with the exception of maybe Persian, are really elegant and sleek enough for my liking. Might need quite a big catflap, though. Herdier's probably the most similar Pokemon to my current dog in terms of height and build, so one of those would probably be all right too. Hopefully they won't fight much, though...

I'd keep a Magikarp in a fish bowl, most likely. If I were any good at training Pokemon (if they were real), I'd probably take a Tyrannitar for walks in the park to scare and kill people I don't like.

Noob out.

I think....

Meowth/Persian-It's a widdle kitty!/big kitty that can rip your face off.
Heh, who needs a guard dog?

Arcanine-One of the few dog Pokemon that is kickass. Also, guard dog! Also, since it's a Fire-type, you won't need much heat at night thanks to its fire!

Skitty/Delcatty-Same reason as Meowth/Persian.

Eevee-D'aww, a little fox-thing.

Jolteon-My favorite Pokemon, self-explanatory.
HACKS I SUPPORT:
Pokemon Brown
Pokemon Prism
Pokemon Rijon Adventures

Looking at my favorite Pokemon, the most appropriate one that I would love to have as a pet would be Espeon. I would be named Red (just like in all my games that have an Espeon in them) and it would be lovely. I'm sure it would love to live in a place like Florida, where it can sunbathe all it wants.

I would definitely have a Drifloon and Wooper as pets. I don't think I'd be a Pokemon trainer though.

I'd definitely choose a Growlithe or Arcanine. Or have a pair of Nidorans.

I'd have a mammal and a reptile. for a mammal, I'd have a growlithe, and for the reptile, I'd have either a squirtle or a charmander. they all make really cute pokemon that perhaps wouldn't be too destructive. :D

I'd definitely prefer pets over battling. :[ I'm not a confrontational person at heart and I really wouldn't like watching my Pokémon get hurt, even in a harmless battle.

I'd love a few Joltik (SO CUTE), a Pichu (though I probably couldn't keep one because it'd chew on all the wires in my house... and I have a lot of charger cables! ><) and, well, a Cherrim, obviously. :[

I would have an Eevee, Vulpix and Purrloin. xDD;;
I would prefer them as pets. If they were real, I wouldn't be able to stand seeing them get hurt, really.

Definitely a Persian. I've always been partial to cats and Persian is the most elegant-looking Pokemon ever (Milotic be damned) so it's a perfect match for me
