As any Pokémon fan will tell you, we all have our favourites. There’s one little Pocket Monster that will always hold a special place in our hearts, and deep down in that heart, we wish on some level there was a way they could join us in the real world. There may not be any emotional attachment, just a feeling that it’d be awesome if they were real. Imagine flying to work on a Latias! Or starting up a window cleaning business with Mr. Mime! You could even start up a restaurant if you had a healthy supply of Tepig, Miltank and Chansey– you could almost get a full English breakfast out of them!
On the other hand though, there are a few Pokémon that not even the most hardy Trainer/Reality Shaper would want to wish upon the real world. Those ones whose creepy Pokedex entries seem like they’d be the perfect basis for a horror movie, despite the fact their game sprites still somehow manage to look vaguely cute. That’s what I’ll be looking at in this week’s Top Ten: the REAL monsters in your pocket.
