• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Pokemon of Famous People from History


La Melancolie Noir
H. P. Lovecraft gets a Malamar.

Funny how you say that, because in X I have a Malamar named Cthulhu. I can see him having an Arbok or Seviper too, and other Pokemon representing the other Great Old Ones.

Groucho Marx gets a Probopass. Just look at their faces...

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr get Heracross, Pinsir, Ledian, and Karrablast, in no particular order.

Galileo gets Ledian, Starmie, Solrock, Lunatone, and maybe Sigilyph.

Buddha gets a Medicham.

Hitler would have a Malamar to hypnotize and brainwash the Germans. Winston Churchill would have a Galade as a Bodyguard, Ghandi would have a Meditite, Mussolini would have a Honchkrow, President Roosevelt would have a Lucario as a guard so he could tell who was with the Nazis and who wasn't, and Franco would have a Fascist Bisharp as an enforcer.

Hmm... I guess Robert J. Oppenheimer would have a science-y Pokemon like Reuniclus. I'm not sure which would fit nuclear fission or nuclear things in general. I think I would go with Reuniclus because nuclear fission is essentially about splitting atoms if I remember it correctly.


Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (Aliens Guy) Missingno./M/Badegg/Any Glitch Pokemon

Aren't pokemon fictional? How can famous people have them? Has someone somehow invented pokemon but only the rich can afford them?


The Poké-theorist.
This is probably the most fun thread I've ever seen.

Okay okay, let me think of some.

The Jesus thing is fair play with Heracross. I could definitely see him having a Timburr too because, yeah, the carpenter thing again. Part of me wants to try and think of some whitty Arceus connection but I can't be bothered to think of anything clever right now.

Paul McCartney - Dedenne. The resemblance is uncanny. Look at pictures of Paul in the early days and you can see his little hamster cheeks :D.
John Lennon - Musharna. "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one"
George Harrison - Banette. He was sent to court a bunch of times for ripping off other artists' songs. Banette would fit his sneaky nature.
Ringo Starr - Nosepass. Ringo has a mahoosive nose, so they'd get along.

They'd all have Nincada or better yet, Kricketune because of the Beatles thing. Bad pun I know.

I'll try and think of more.


I have a boyfriend now; I am his princess❤️
Oh, okay, i think i get what this thread is about better lol what pokemon famous people would have...

Personally, I see George Bush with that thing that evolves from Bunnelby. :p Diggersby, i think its called?...I dunno why but THOSE TWO SEEM PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER TO ME hahahaha XD

I see Zeus with Thunderous as well :p

And Aphrodite/Venus works well with Ninetales lol

Not sure if this was done already, but Theodore Roosevelt would definitely have a Teddiursa/Ursaring.
Mr. Rogers would have a happy, fluffy Wigglytuff that cheers people up all the time.
Bill Nye would have a Mewtwo.
Mike Rowe would have a Diggersby.

Can't think of anything else at the moment...


<- Best PKMN Ever
RuPaul and Lopunny.

'Nuff Said, hunty!

As long as the Lopunny is male.

Erwin Rommel (the Desert Fox) seemed to like barbed wire defenses, especially at El Alamein. Ferrothorn would be fitting for him.
Harry Houdini would either have Greninja or Kecleon and be the Protean master.

Hernan Cortes would have an Escavelier.
Christopher Colombus would have Thunderus
Emilio Zapata would have Hawlucha.


Cool Trainer
Daniel Bernoulli would have latias, latios, gastly, and whimsicott.
