This game needs pokemon based off english/greek/roman/norse/egyptian/etc. mythology

There isn't a single english dragon, or gorgon, or hydra, or cerberus, or plenty of other great mythological creatures yet. why make another fish when you could make something totsally new.

Game also needs Knights(steel/fighting) and some sort of musical instrument type of pokemon.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

That is Yu-Gi-Oh's thing. Pokemon doesn't want to tread there.

It's MTG's thing, but Yu-Gi-Oh decided tread there, why the **** can't Pokemon.

@Tuner
You could make the case that they have used a basic feature of Cerberus. Traditionally Cerberus has three heads, and there is a Pokemon with three heads.

BTW:
How did you come up with your name?
I think it is cool.

Charizard is based of european myth dragons. Not that but if you do some research you find that a lot of Pokemons are based on mythogical beings, even if only slightly. For example, Pidgeotto and Pidgeot 'eye mark' dos resembles the ones found in Ra pictures (the old egyptian god). Arcanine is based on some Korean myth. Houndoom is also inspired in the Cerberus myth.

Spend some time reading in Bulbapedia and you get to know Pokemon a lot.

It is, as some admiral once said, a trap.
