Mosquito
Cockroach
Sea Urchin
Crown of Thorns
Bottlenose dolphin
Flamingo
Squid (How is this not in? Tentacruel doesn't count because it's a jellyfish)
Stingray
Torpedo Ray (Stunfisk comes close but is more of a flounder/Stargazer thing)


Mosquito = Masquerain

Can't think of a Cockroach, but it would actually be a really goon one.

No Sea urchin

Crown of thorns is less of an Animal and more of an object, but it could work

No dolphin Pokemon, which is another weird missing spot

A Flamingo would work if you made it Fire/Flying, but it would be easy for it to become really generic

This is an Octopus, but again, a Squid is one of those weird missing spots

Mantyke and Mantine and Manta-rays, which I do realize isn't quite the same thing, but I don't think most people appreciate the differences to justify the distinction in this case.

Darmanitan doesn't count f*** you.

No. And on top of that, no. And furthermore, wrong. And in conclusion, no.

Masquerain is a moth. Its name does not have "mosquito" as a root word, but "masquerade".

It's pretty inevitable that Kyogre gets mentioned in one of these topics. It's pretty rare for it to be so obviously justified.

Humans. You should catch a person as a Pokemon.

It's such a terrible representation of a dolphin/orca though.

It looks more like a giant fish than Shamu.

mantine is a stingray. kinda. i guess you want an electric/water type of stingray though.

It looks like an orca to me. False eye spots, horizontal tail (fish typically have vertical tails), water spout (you normally can't see it, but consider its trademark move...)

Oh, it's heavily stylized, of course, but all Pokemon are stylized at least a little.

No, Zephiroth was right in that Mantine is a manta, not a stingray. Though they look a little similar, they're actually not that closely related.

I want a bottle-nose dolphin and a giant panda. And maybe a koala.
