View Full Version : "Ugh this is hard. Go! Machoke!"

April 2nd, 2011, 8:17 PM
Bad title is bad. :P

If you've seen in the games, there are NPCs in them who get Pokemon to help them with daily activities, such as Machoke to help with construction, or Spearow to help deliver a letter to someone, but what if that was in somewhat of a real-life situation. So you may be doing your daily job, and you have a team of Pokemon which can help aide you in said job, so some questions for you.

What job would you use Pokemon for?

What Pokemon would you use for said job (max 6)?

I've been thinking of many scenarios for this, and I'll just go with something simple, like a house robbery (lol). First, I'd bring someone sneaky, yet strong like a Machop so it can lift anything heavy and stuff. Second, would be a Loudred, which could help make a diversion so I wouldn't get caught. I'd have a Smeargle which could cover up any traces of myself I could leave behind, and then something like a Skarmory, so I could fly away quickly.

That's terrible I know, but what about you?

House robbery? I'd go with bank robbery! /lolbrick'd

Anyways, if I would go for a bank robbery I'd use a Breloom and let it use Spore to make everyone asleep. Then, I'm going to use Tentacruel to smudge ink into the camera lens, so they can't see me when I enter. After finally entering, I'll have my Cofagrigus use Psychic to open all the locked doors. Finally, I'll use a Wailord to hide all of the money (lol). And for a quick getaway, I can use Alakazam to teleport me away to safety. xD

For jobs like manning the cash register, I'm going to use Alakazam. For a massage job, Cofagrigus/Machamp can use their 4 hands to massage people. :D

What is with you two and stealing. lol

For cleaning my room I'd use a Swablu and Mincinno because according to the Pokedex, they are both clean freaks, Igglybuff because it is small and could use Psychic to put everything where it should be, Machop to lift heavy things so that Swablu and Mincinno could clean under them, Tangela because it can use its vines to sweep, mop, dust and clean and Gardevoir because it can use Psychic like Igglybuff and it looks like it would do a vary good job making my bed. I'd either have a very clean room when they're done or a pile of rubble where my room used to be.

Medium seems like an obvious example: you only need something like an Alakazam who seems to be very useful for everything! - or a Hypno or pretty much any Psychic Pokemon. Although a medium would probably become a much more common profession as a result of the existence of the Pokemon world. Turf disputes could become common, possibly!

I'd need an Abra for teleportation purposes. The rest I can do for myself. Maybe a Gallade as a bodyguard - that awesome Fighting/Psychic combo type makes the ultimate warrior.

April 3rd, 2011, 8:42 AM
When going places, I use my Alakazam to teleport. When relaxing at the beach, I use my Wailord to swim around while I'm on top. XD I've always wanted to ride one. When doing homework, again Alakazam. When cleaning things, I use Minccino, as said before, a clean freak. :D

April 3rd, 2011, 11:05 AM
Hmm... I'd have a Swellow to deliver messages for me and maybe a Houndoom to guard the house :)

I would have Braviary or Dragonite deliver messages for me. My bodyguard would be either a Dragonite or Hydreigon. (and flight =p)

For heavy lifting, I would have a Machamp help me.
For homework help, I would have Metagross and its 4 brains help me.
And for school, I would have a Ditto copy me and sit in my classroom for me XD

That's what I wanted to do when I was a little kid.

I might get a Glaceon to keep my house cool but eventually he would get too uncomfortable out here in Arizona. I would get a pokemon that could ride around on like an Arcanine or something so that I could avoid using the stupid bus and public transportation.

If we're coming up with house breaking scenarios using pokemon then I would use Haunter to scare everyone out, then a Glaceon to freeze the entire house, and a Happiny to carry it with all the valuables inside all the way back to my house.

Lol, I like the idea behind this thread. Though I don't think it would be a good idea to use Pokemon to steal. You'd essentially be Team Rocket.

The only bad thing about this, is if it were real, a lot, and I mean a lot of people would be out of work. Why pay someone to do something when you can get your Pokemon to do it for free?

I would personaly be happy with a fire type Pokemon like Cyndaquil, it could keep me warm in the winter, and I wouldn't have to worry about keeping matches and or a lighter on my Pokemon journey. An Electric type (probably Pickachu) would be handy to recharge my devices like laptop and cell phone. A water type (Buizel or Dewott, or both) would be handy in the sumer, or to put out a camp fire after the fire type started it and to keep you cool in the summer heat.

tl;dr Cyndaquil for body heat in the winter, Pikachu to charge stuff, and Buizel to cool me off in the summer.

I would use Pokemon for various things, being on my own most of the time. I would have a Mr. Mime help me with chores (yeah, like Ash's mom. xD), and Growlithe & Espeon would help me with security (as in, keeping watch for crooks or unusual activity around my apartment). I would have my Fearow be my main transportation, so I won't have to waste gas in my car, so I would get to school faster instead of going in traffic. For my garden, Meganium & Oshawott would help me water it and heal it. So, there, those are the six Pokemon that would help me with my stuff. That's not much, right? :P

What job would you use Pokemon for?: Transport

What Pokemon would you use for said job (max 6)?: Scolipede (for land travel), Salamence (for flight), Lapras (for water travel)

Playing god

What Pokemon would you use for said job (max 6)?
I'll assume I can't just say "Arceus", and autowin, so
-Zapdos, for electrocuting people I don't like
-Mewtwo, for flying/telekinesis/teleportation shenanigans
-Dialga for quick time travel
-Palkia for quick travel
-Groudon for brute force

April 4th, 2011, 6:45 PM
Hmm...I guess I'd use them for superhero duties and stuff. Trying to help others in the world, I guess.


-Blaziken for defense
-Rayquaza or Charizard or Dragonite for transportation and aerial offensives
-Giratina to intimidate those who oppress justice and innocent people, combating such oppressors if needed
-Mewtwo for telekinetic duties
-Zekrom for electrical matters
-Kyogre for aquatic issues, providing fresh water to those who thirst

Fearow as my ever-loyal and dutiful guard-bird. Would also do the clear majority of the battle challenges from other trainers, obviously, for sport outside of its regular, active duties.

Alakazam for doing my taxes and helping me maintain a solid budget to live on. Also, repair work on a variety of miscellaneous things.

Haunter for indulging my twisted sense of humour. Playful, though, not sadistic or dangerous. Also, can be sent out to get help or be the one to free me as it could phase through to release a lever, open a door, or whatever I needed to escape from a perilous situation.

Chansey as my personal assistant/attendant. Paperwork, medical needs for me and my other pokemon, shopping, cooking, etc.

Parasect for foraging supplies to aid Chansey in her medical duties, cooking, and whatnot.

Tauros for generic transportation, heavy workloads, etc.

I would have a Lugia for flying purposes and using in an Avatar remake, don't get too jealous.

Well, if I were to orchestrate a massive Bernie Madoff-like fraud...

Alakazam to mess with people's mind to convince them to give me their money and to erase their memories if they get suspicious.

Meowth/Persian with Pay Day for a little extra cash on the side. And so I can appear as the stereotypical evil dude who sits in a big chair petting their cat.

Skarmory for a fast escape if the feds do investigate my scheme.

April 7th, 2011, 1:16 PM
Simple! Loudred would be my alarm clock and Machoke would be around to give me a good Wake-Up Slap should that fail. I'll never be late for school again. :) And if ever I was running late for whatever reason, I'd have Deoxys-S to take me to school really quickly. Life made simple.

April 7th, 2011, 2:25 PM
A Charizard! It could take you everywhere and just having fun!

April 7th, 2011, 2:42 PM
Uh... for me...

No alarm clock, since mine does fine... however, maybe an Arcanine to transport me to school... and a Machoke to carry my stuff? Also, maybe an Alakazam to help me with my homework, and a Gardevoir to help me with my music practice. (Do Gardevoirs know how to play the piano? :O)

Iunno about anything else.

April 7th, 2011, 2:49 PM
What job would you use Pokemon for? Karate

What Pokemon would you use for said job (max 6)? Machoke

I would definately rob a beauty parlor. I would have a Pokémon like Jynx or Wigglytuff or the like and have them do an inside job and steal everything. I would also protect myself from rapists with a small but fierce Pokémon like Tyrogue.
