If you had to take just one Pokemon with you to survive the zombie apocalypse, which one would it be? Would you want a Pokemon that fights for you, scavenge for supplies or just keep you company (since you've got a shotty) ?

Very good question, especially since NEW WALKING DEAD TONIGHT HELL FRIGGIN YES.

Umbreon. Its rings glow at night, which makes it perfect for darker forests and places, and it can also be alert when it comes to walkers nearby. Umbreon can also be great in attacking walkers and scavenging for necessary items. It makes the perfect companion during this time.

Gourgeist. It's pretty zombieish itself, so maybe I can avoid getting attacked. And with Pickup, I can scavenge for supplies.

But my second choice would be any flying type. Pretty sure zombies can't get off the ground.

Zombies... They are poison-type, right? 8D So a steel type would be ultimate. Also, if it could fly, I could ride it and get away quickly. So, Skarmory it is!

It might be better to have a pokémon with good special attacks though. Flamethrower to be able to burn zombies that happen to get close. Charizard or Talonflame would therefore be great.

I would take a Growlithe with me, they're my favorite pokemon! They can keep me warm at night, AND they're dogs so they have a great sense of smell, they'd be able to detect zombies from far away. Also a fire type, so they can light the way in the dark and burn through any zombies!

Slipping through the cracks of a dark eternity;
With nothing but my hate and the paralyzing agony
To tell me who I am, who I was; Uncertainty
Enveloping my mind till I can't break free; And
Maybe it's a dream, maybe nothing else is real
But it wouldn't mean a thing if I told you how I feel
So I'm tired of all this pain, of the misery inside
And I wish that I could live feeling nothing but the night.

I'd probably take Scizor. Scizor may not be very fast, but it could strike devastating Bullet Punch attacks. It's got major Attack stat, and with the help of its Technician ability, it gets a boost to all its low-powered attacks like Pursuit, Quick Attack, and, of course, Bullet Punch. As long as it's got some energy left in its body, zombies wouldn't stand a chance—they wouldn't be able to get anywhere near me. If I was allowed to have two Pokémon, then the second one would be Vulpix. I'd always cuddle with it; due to its warm body, I would never feel cold. (:

I'd take a Tropius. I can eat its fruit when we haven't come across canned goods for days - also I'd imagine its a herbivore so there shouldn't be any problem finding food for it in the apocalypse. Its hidden ability Harvest could mean that I could be completely sufficient on it for food. Also, we can fly away in a pinch. I might want to keep a Poochyena as well if I happen to come across one. Dogs are loyal and it can Howl in case of an attack. I just hope that Run Away works in real life the same way it works in the games.

HAHAHA! I am Michonne so I don't need a Pokemon to help me survive the Zombie Apocalypse ;D but if I HAD to take one it would definitely be Aegislash. It could switch into Shield Form to protect me from an attack and then switch into Blade Form to slash the zombie in half.

I'd expect picking a legendary Pokemon would be cheating, so I'd like to say that I'd pick a Steelix to help me survive a zombie apocalypse. I made my choice before reading some of the other replies, but I seem to be of the same opinion that a Steel type would be one of the best choices, as it'd likely be immune to any zombie attacks itself. As for Steelix, it's one of the largest (and presumably strongest) Pokemon there is, so I'd feel much safer hiding behind that than say, a Scizor or Skarmory. Plus, with Steelix's main habitat being in caves and underground, I probably wouldn't have to worry too much about being found, though it might be difficult to gather supplies.

If it was the zombie apocalypse, I would obviously take Abra to teleport me the **** away!
Or maybe a healer of some sort to cure the zombies of the sickness.
Honestly I don't think zombie apocalypse would ever happen in the Pokemon world because Pokemon would kill the zombies with non contac moves (so not to contract disease,) and knowing the healing abilities of many Pokemon combined with the technology, the zombie disease would probably be curable.

My first instinct was probably Serperior. I mean it would be great for stealth missions and scavenging for food. It knows a variety of attacks including special attacks, so that it could fend off the zombies without touching them. It's also pretty fast, so it could swoop me out of danger. Face it, I would have chosen Serperior no matter what.

I'd have to pick Samurott. I doubt Zombies could swim and with Razor Shell and X-Scissors he could chop zombies up easiliy. and if i was in the prison and zombies threatened to knock down the fence I would use Hydro Pump

I'm thinking maybe Dodrio. It has three heads and one is always awake so that's a good way to make sure I'm watched over. I can ride it and it's fast so I can run away when I need to.

Greninja would be amazing. His Speed is extreme; not sure about his Attack, but ftw Extrasensory! :P But yeah, I would choose him because of his immense speed, and his fast attacks. It would also be able to swim on water, which would be especially useful in a zombie apocalypse. :> ~

An interesting question: which Pokemon attacks would be effective or not against zombies? Which types would be weak against zombie attacks?

I was thinking that psychic moves might be weak against zombies since they don't have a coherent brain to mind control.

I like your logic XD

I'd go Pidgeot, because zombies can't fly
Or maybe Aegislash then I could wield it and we can be some badass zombie slayers

I'll take steelix, the zombie would crash after biting steelix.
More importantly, I'm safe.

I was going to say Growlithe or Arcanine right off the bat, but... the only thing worse than zombies are flaming zombies. I think fire types in general are probably a bad idea, because of not only flaming zombies but also, fire means light, and light means being found. I might take Tropius, because it can fly and also is a constant supply of food.
Or my Tyrantrum. You know. For obvious reasons.

What about Fire/Flying? If our light attracts hordes or the zombies catch fire, we'll just take off before they catch up.

Unless this is some Siren: Blood Curse situation, in which flying zombies exist. They're still pretty slow, though.

But yeah, I would take my Charizard. Heat source/fire, and able to get out of a tight spot quickly.

Skarmory. It's made of metal, it can fly, and it has wings like razor blades.

Or Metagross. It's as smart as a supercomputer, made of steel, and a complete boss.
