A friend and I even had an activity every recess in fifth and sixth grade: we acted out our own Pokémon adventure, with some cartoon characters as trainers. We thought, “what Pokémon would SpongeBob have? What about the Powerpuff Girls?” Our imaginations explored all possibilities every day at those recesses.
Now after growing up, I still like to occasionally draw my own Pokémon, yet since this blog is called “Trevor’s View on HOLLYWOOD,” I want to combine my love for Pokémon with my love for movies. Then maybe later I will consider sharing my own original Pokémon creations.
So what if some of your favorite movie characters coexisted with Pokémon? Here are 12 movie characters as Pokémon trainers:
Abomasnow: It defends the kingdom from invaders and gives Elsa’s other snowman creation, Marshmallow, somebody to play with.
Froslass: She found a Snorunt in the wilderness and thought it was cute. Now she had used a Dusk Stone on it instead of letting it evolve into Glalie, a Pokémon which scares Olaf.
Glaceon: Received from Anna in a trade, Elsa evolved her Eevee into Glaceon so it can complement her ice powers.
Jynx: Elsa needs a good match to her singing ability. Or more like, she needs a flat tune that thinks it can sing well to help her feel better.
Ninetales (Alolan): It is as beautiful as Elsa while giving her extra control over some snow.
Vanilluxe: She loves the snow, she loves ice cream, ‘nuff said.
Delcatty, Furfrou, and Stoutland: Because she grew up in a castle, some of her only friends, would include the well-groomed, well domesticated Pokémon living there.
Lapras: The two sisters eventually traded Pokémon, Anna giving Elsa her Eevee for Lapras. This gives Anna the chance to go on luxury fjord excursions.
Sawsbuck: Anna loves nature across the four seasons, so she frequently takes Sawsbuck out as her 365 outdoor companion.
Togekiss: She loves caring for those cuddly companions, therefore, she kept Togekiss close to her side ever since it was an egg.
Crobat: It completely parallels Batman’s character: frightening, dangerous, ruthless, powerful, cunning, and agile.
Malamar: It possess the uncanny ability to hypnotize its victims, an effective tool for Batman’s interrogations.
Marowak (Alolan): Cubone’s tragic backstory matches Batman’s early loss of a mother, so when it came time for the masked orphan to evolve, he demanded it grew into the fire/ghost Alolan style, to fit his public image.
Mightyena: Having a vicious dark-colored hound patrolling Gotham keeps criminals on edge while paralyzing them in fear.
Pangoro: A brutal fighter who blends into the night, much like the Dark Knight himself.
Swoobat: Although a rather unscary bat, as to reason why Batman uses it more while he is Bruce Wayne, particularly when he needs to score a date.
Aegislash: Wonder Woman always needs a companion who can honor true authority, and Aegislash offers both the offense and defense to her battle strategy.
Aurorus: Many prehistoric Pokémon thrive back at Wonder Woman’s home, and Aurorus gives off the powerful grace she seeks after.
Golurk: It protects against mortals, a strong value of the Amazonians.
Kangaskhan (Mega Evolved): While Wonder Woman may value the natural state of a warrior, she wanted Kangaskhan to let her baby fight as well, giving an exception to mega evolution.
Nidoqueen: A female who goes all out in battle, just like the amazon warriors.
Skarmory: These armored beasts utilize the sky battles of Wonder Woman and the other amazon women.
Captain Jack Sparrow
Dhelmise: It doubles as the anchor to his ship and his alert system for near approaching cursed armies.
Ditto: Its ability to transform can aid in robberies, and when fighting, it can copy another’s techniques and bounce them right back.
Kecleon: It can blend into its surroundings, providing clever ways to steal other peoples’ loot.
Milotic: Just how did he obtain such an impossible to obtain Pokémon? Simple: he’s Captain Jack Sparrow.
Wobbuffet: Jack always thinks three steps ahead of everyone else. Thus, his Wobbuffet works in playing off the fighter’s expectations.
Zoroark: Having a Pokémon on his team who can trick you into questioning its identity generates the fun Jack likes to have against his rivals.
Absol (Mega): It creates bad luck for whomever crosses its path, so you better believe Deadpool plans to exploit his super kitty.
Rapidash: Unicorns. Socks. Crocs. You do the math.
Scrafty: A sneaky thief and a swift spy which allows Deadpool to keep an eye on his enemies.
Seviper: Sometimes Deadpool likes to pit it against its ultimate rival, Zangoose … with bad guys in between the hustle. He’ll probably even post it on YouTube.
Toxicroak: He could really use a fighter who can poison jab people he dislikes.
Zangoose: It has sharp claws. They cut. They bleed. They kill. Chimichangas.
Alakazam (Mega), Gardevoir (Mega), Gothitelle, and Xatu: These future-seeing Pokémon are put to super good use when Doctor Strange needs to see forthcoming danger.
Dusknoir: Doctor Strange gets much use from its communication across dimensions, as it knows the whereabouts of enemies such as Dormammu.
Medicham (Mega): Strange relies a lot on meditation to strengthen his productivity, so Medicham, particularly a heavily advanced one, gives the motivation he needs to rediscover himself.
Electrode and Magnezone: These Pokémon can both charge his technology and test his inventions.
Klinklang: It generates quick, efficient energy, as well as adds a brilliant visual aid in Stark’s college lectures about machinery.
Machamp: Having a muscular, four-armed assistant benefits a lot when Stark needs the extra hands in the lab. It also offers some great suit upgrade training.
Metagross (Mega): It represents everything his work stands for: the very best of what technology can do.
Porygon-Z: Yes, he created his own Porygon, and upgraded it—twice.
Beheeyem: At points when Kylo needs to reserve his energy, his Beheeyem comes in to cause much deeper internal pain in mentally torturing victims.
Bisharp: Much like how Kylo dictates his pawns in the Knights of Ren, he portrays the First Order’s governmental style with Bisharp’ authoritative style with the Pawniards.
Gengar: Kylo Ren hopes to someday use the force to overtake another by sneaking into their shadow, but for now, Gengar will do.
Houndoom: In the First Order’s attacks from base to base, Houndoom can easily cause massive fiery destruction.
Lucario (Mega): Due to Kylo Ren’s hopeless obsession of using the dark side to master the force, training a Lucario, and mega evolving it, motivates him to match his grandfather.
Mimikyu: It just wants to be loved, but must first put on the mask of an already respected figure. In the same way, Kylo Ren struck a bond.
Diggersby and Excadrill: Plenty valuable objects worth trading lie underground, and these two Pokémon can dig down under with ease.
Linoone: It can easily fit into most any tight fit to scavenge after various items, whether for profit or for personal reasons.
Persian: Rey cannot decide the worth of anything she finds without Persian’s secret ability.
Probopass: Since many things she scavenges consist of metal, Rey needs a living compass like Probopass to point her towards the most profitable materials.
Steelix (Mega): It can dig deep into Jakku, more so than Diggersby or Excadrill, and its intimidating appearance ensures no one comes to rob from Rey.
Bellossom: Moana does these dancing rituals, ones she believes become much more magical and awe-striking to watch when doing it alongside her little luau partner.
Blaziken (Mega): Moana feels she deserves better than Hei Hei, so having a giant fire-breathing chicken by her side makes her feel a bit more secure.
Comfey: Moana loves to wear leis. Therefore, Moana likes to walk around the island with her Comfey resting around her shoulders.
Exeggutor (Alolan): A common sighting in her tribe, as well as a great way to access coconuts.
Mantine: Also quite common where she lives, and it reminds her of her grandmother.
Pelipper: A popular companion in her tribe, and a great aid in daily chores as it can carry water easily from end of the island to the other.
Altaria: Newt loves all that is delicate and powerful, and watching Altaria take flight perhaps delights Newt more than anything else.
Blissey: Its eggs bring irresistible happiness when eaten by Newt’s beasts. Having a large, compassionate nurse by his side certainly puts Newt more at ease, especially when caught in a medical situation.
Dragonite, Drampa, and Goodra: These large, huggable lugs are exactly what Newt can easily connect with, and ones he can introduce to those who misunderstand the concept of fantastic beasts.
Wigglytuff: As a Jigglypuff, its soothing songs calmed Newt’s beasts down enough to maintain control. It can still sing after evolution, but now asserts itself much more while singing.
