Pokemon...

You'd better sit down.

Pokemon... can be based on more than one thing.

So can we PLEASE stop arguing whether a Pokemon is one thing or another?

Other than the three cats, I've never heard that argument. I think most Pokemon are pretty clear in what they represent.

First off I want to make sure everyone is clear: Bulbasaur is both a plant bulb and a dinosaur.

I'd put a quip here, but I'm not hilarious enough.

Remoraid is both a Remora and a gun who evolves into a octopus that is also a cannon.

Which is why some people get confused as to why a fish turns into an octopus. They don't see the weapon influence in the design.

I hear it all the damn time. Not just on this board.

Just the other day I saw some people arguing over whether Joltik is a spider or a tick. And I've heard of arguments about whether Eevee is a fox, cat or rabbit.

I'm saying Pokemon aren't these one thing. They're ALL of them.

A very good example.

Well.... I know Zangoose is a "Cat Ferret" type Pokemon. That itself is two things in one! The awesomest two things in one I might add.
