The Flopping Dead.
The Chinese myth where a fish who jumper over a mountain turns into a dragon
“Magikarp is based on the Asian carp, which are easily frightened by disturbances in water and can jump 8–10 feet (2.5–3 m) in the air.
Magikarp’s evolution into Gyarados is based on a legend about how carp that leapt over the Dragon Gate would become dragons. Several waterfalls and cataracts in China are believed to be the location of the Dragon Gate. This legend is an allegory of the drive and efforts needed to overcome obstacles. This may have inspired an element in Pokémon Snap where, after certain steps are taken, a Magikarp will splash its way into a waterfall where it evolves.”
Ha so they assume 400 candies = a dragon gate?
I guess. Good way to implement that in Pokemon go though
What about feebas.
A monkey that wants to fight and dance
“Considering its pig-like nose, long tail, and overall personality, Mankey has much in common with baboons.”
And punch a hole in its candies by evolution.
“As its name suggests, Feebas is probably based on a bass, possibly the largemouth bass. It also resembles the marine hatchetfish. Its ugly appearance makes it appear to be also based from the concept of ugliness, appearing to don a wash of ugly makeup. It also seems to be based on the classic fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling, where a small and feeble “ugly duckling”, treated as an outcast by other animals, blossoms into a beautiful swan.”
Nice! The ugly fish hahaha.
“Misdreavus’ nocturnal habits of wailing to frighten people and its similarity in appearance to a disembodied head are shared by various mythological creatures. One of these is the nukekubi, which shares the similarities of nocturnal habits, flying about as a decapitated head, and wailing to increase its victims’ fright. Another possible origin is the banshee, a female spirit from Gaelic folklore who was known for its unearthly wailing and screaming. It is also possible that it was based on a Lang Suir, a type of vampire in Malaysian mythology known to appear as a flying decapitated head of a woman.”
I think it is based on a wig, if you look at it from above in Pokemon go
I can’t imagine someone coming to school wearing that, @Brobraam😁
He looks like a yellow rattie
He looks more like a orange mouse
