Out of curiosity, if you were to consider all pokemon as living creatures (all types, even ghosts etc) then what pokemon would you find the hardest to equate to an animal or hybrid of animals? Based on the design not necessarily on the behaviors.
For instance pokemon like magnemite or voltorb - would probably be pretty hard to find an equivalent in our world but if I thought about it I would place them as being insects - like voltorb and electrode are pill bugs that can completely roll up into spheres.
Spiritomb, to me would be a frilled lizard.
The chansey line are chickens to me.
Obviously everyone will have varying opinions on what they see but it would be curious to know which ones people see as what animal and if there are any that would entirely confuse you.
Something like doublade or aegislash. Like? How would you turn something like that into a living creature?
Or plant based creatures like oddish.
