>>24615349 Sure! It's supposed to look like one of those early phylogenetic trees with lots of pictures of pokemon and the person who made it decided to go quantity over quality. It's fun to try to sort pokemon out in this way but some aren't really based on any animal (like Froslass) so it's tough to find places for them. For example, they listed the Lileep line as Cnidaria (probably thinking they're based off of sea anenomes) even though they resemble crinoids more (which are echinoderms) and there's nothing that suggests that their little feelers are shock-y like the ones sea anenomes have.
But if I'm being honest, I admire their dedication and they probably got more right than most pokemon fans would.
>>24615305 >>24615398 This one is actually pretty damn good on a biological level. As you said some of the few problems like Cradily aren't because of lack of taxonomical knowledge but rather misinterpreting Cradily's origin. Although I have no idea how he sees Golem as a lizard and not a turtle. The rest of the odd ones, like making plant pokémon closer related to stones than other eukaryotes , or placing ghosts between vertebrates and other animals aren't really biological errors either.
>>24615733 This always pisses me off, butterfree was not and is not supposed to be from venonat. The caterpie line is based off of the swallowtail butterfly's life stages, as the caterpillar looks exactly like caterpie, horns and all, the metapod looks exactly like the chrysalis, and the butterfree looks exactly like the butterfly. It's even worse than the over 9000 myth, since the original airing was "over 8000".
>>24615842 >design artists created niggers and abos that's why they look the same
You're dumb as bricks. The reason is that suigomoroi intended butterfree to be the 2nd evolution form of venonat, but it was later changed to be the final evolution of caterpie to coincide with the anime.

>>24616390 >this one is a whole lot better, even if there's still a lot of shit like dewgong being a perissodactyl It's better in terms of placing inorganic pokémon like those based on stone or ice and such, and legendaries. But regular pokémon with real-life organic counterparts are way worse placed.
>>24615427 >otters are pinnipeds >Purrloin and Liepards aren't felines >Patrat and Watchog are meerkats and not groundhogs >Zigzagoon and Linoone as raccoons and not raccoon dogs >what the fuck is up with the elephant placement >pangolins not even close to ferans >Chimcar, Monferno and Inferape aren't even listed as actual apes >Crocodilians not even listed with other archosaurs >Dratini line not salamanders, but snakes >Placing Bulbasaur line with Squamates >Genesect as a trilobite >Heatran placed with mechanical pokémon >Chemecho being metal based >Koffing and Weezing being close to fungi
Probably some more but my knowledge regarding plants and arthopods is limited.
>>24616728 Whops, my mistake, sorry. Although the other post has some pretty weird claims too, like munna not being a tapir. There is also no real problem with Gardevoir being a spirit while Mr. Mime is a hominid given the egg groups.
>>24616765 I agree that Swirlix is stupid as fuck. But I don't really see it as that illogical that perhaps Klink, Magnemite and Koffing are man.made, since Voltorb and Grimer are. Although unintentionally.
>>24616780 Klink and Koffing would make sense as freak accidents, as Klink suddenly showed up only one hundred years ago in canon, and Koffing looks like an explosive.
Magnemite may be natural though, since they're shown participating in the Kalos war alongside AZ's Floette. The technology back then seemed less polished visually than the sleek Magnemite line (Golurk, Ultimate Weapon, etc.), so I feel like they might just be a weird metal creature like Klefki.
>>24616371 I can see why Lickitung would be under amphibian since it looks like a tree frog. Even though tree frogs are considered amphibians, they are pretty different in how they don't have tadpole stages, and they prefer to stay on land in dry areas to eat.
>>24615930 >tfw those Missingno. are all removed Pokémon.
There were originally 190 Pokémon, but 40 were removed in development, leaving empty slots which redirected to the MissingNo. error message when called. Mew was later inserted into the first empty space, which is why it's so early in the table despite having expkictly been stated to have been added late.
Despite all the holes these charts can have. It still makes you think. There are Pokemon that are created from nothing, Pokemon who are made into being from other Pokemon, Pokemon that come from outer space, and Pokemon that are created on earth. What exactly makes a Pokemon a Pokemon canon-wise?
