I remember a lot of pokemon more in the ruy and saphire games... but i do have pokemon red, the origional tital in 1996, so i am ashamed that i cant remember them ( :
+2
Level 67
Jun 14, 2019
If you read this please dont take offense, I dont mean it like that. I simply find language interesting. English probably isnt your native language, interesting to see how you used origional and tital, because that is sort closer to the pronunciation than the way it is supposed to be spelled. :)

Level 29
Aug 22, 2011
Considering I've played pokemon obsessively at various points in both my childhood and adult life I can't believe I only got 38! Although I would have got more if I could have spelled them. Obviously wasn't obsessed enough!

Thank you, zomgpancakes, I agree. Snorlax was adorable. Totally useless in a fight, but adorable. Wow. I feel like a twelve year old all over again. Who wants to trade!? :D

Level 35
Jul 12, 2013
I got 109 and I never got to watch or play pokemon when I was little. I still haven't. My friends lived on pokemon when they were little, so I know most stuff from them. I'd laugh if I got 151 and there were still die hard fans who couldn't get them all. I think that's now my goal.

Update: My previous high score was 109 and I have never watched or played pokemon at all. My current highscore is 133 (88%) and I know what the majority of those 133 look like. I'm quite proud of myself, tbh. Just got to get the last 12% to be the very best like no one ever was ;)

30/151. That is actual kinda unbelievable due to the fact I haven't played or watched Pokemon since 5 years ago.
+1
Level 36
May 8, 2014
Can you please accept close spellings of some of the more complicated ones, like Exeggcute? (had to look back up for the spelling even typing it now!) Also possibly take Polywag/whirl/wrath?
+1
Level 35
Jun 12, 2014
I missed one because I couldn't type fast enough and I used a book.

Got 140! I just couldn't spell some of the tougher names like Kangaskhan and Aerodactyl. I just went through the Pokerap in my head and that's how I got almost all of them! One of these days I will correctly get all of them within the time limit! Excellent quiz by the way!

And finally, after months of effort, 7:29 remaining; or in other words, 151 Pokemon in 151 seconds.
+6
Level 46
Mar 29, 2017
@Beasley2K 151 seconds = 2 minutes, 31 seconds. If each name is a word, that's 151/2.5 minutes which is ~60 words per minute, which is not only how fast I type on a slow day, but well within the realm of human possibility. If you've memorized the answers then it's just a matter of typing speed. So, yes, very possible, even without cheating. ;) I may have only gotten 109 on my last attempt, but that doesn't mean I couldn't do what JeremyX did with a bit of dedication. So go you, JeremyX! Way to persevere!

Level 33
Jan 29, 2018
Well if it's 1 Pokemon per second, then did you type Muk in the same time frame as Aerodactyl?

Why did I enjoy this? I never participated in anything when it first came out and my phone is apparently just barely too old to do Pokemon Go. But I enjoy walking with my roommates and absorbing their enthusiasm. Lauren assured me she could name them all! She fell a little short: our score "beat or equaled 50.9% of all quiz takers" - barely half! It was especially fun coming up with a name she hadn't (dewgong, geodude).

OK I got pikachu................................................................................................. ow squirtle........ yep nothing else ok, quit

If it was which name belongs to which picture maybe I could ve guessed some ( an idea for a quiz someone? a beginnersversion. Like you have extreme hard harry potter with characters that only have been mentioned once and you have the ones that like only asks the 3 main characters and the professor..) 7

Reading them I think recognized 3, bulbasaur, psyduck and charmander. a few more look slightly familiar, but if they were like hidden in list with made up names and you had to say which were truely pokemon or not, I wouldnt be sure. (charizard ivysaur, geodude, ow and hypno)
