I have no idea and don't pay attention to Pokemon. Only got 11 because of word clues. My son probably could get them all.

It came up by the 'random quiz' link, and I thought I'd try.

Because we are on a quiz site perhaps? And people take quizzes there. Or do you only choose the ones where you know you will get 100%? Rather boring boring to just do quizzes "days of the week " " spell 1-10 in english" and "colours of the rainbow"

So you only take quizzes on subjects you fully know? All I know about Pokemon is "Pikachu", thanks to my nephew. I don't even know what/who Pikachu is.

And I just got 16 of these. Some animal guesses, some deduction by looking at the name. (did "Ekans" actually fool anybody?) I doubt I'll learn anything from this, but I did get 2 points. I'll take that.

100% no problem. (It helps that I've almost caught 'em all!) Although I feel that "lamb" and maybe even "ewe" should be acceptable answers for Mareep.

I've never played Pokémon but got 17/22 just by squinting at the names and guessing.

Last time I checked Squirtle doesn't have flippers or webbed feet, therefore he is more like a tortoise. There's a difference, people -_-

Squortoise doesn't have the same ring to it :-)

The name resembles the word turtle, but the actual Pokemon most closely resembles a tortoise ;)

Ahh...but wouldn't tortoises use ground type attacks and not water type attacks? Boom! Poke-lawyered!

098 if he wanted tortoise he would have entered torterra or torkoal or something that definitely isn't a turtle

Oh yes, because magnets (Magnemite/Magneton) and a pile of eggs (Exeggcute) were so creative...

you're so right. 3 headed dragons, flying genies and aliens? I miss the good ol' days of spheres, piles of sludge and literal animals with nothing added to them at all.

For you, it may be lucky. For me, it's an educated guess.

I've always thought that vulpix looked more like a pony, or a foal even, but now that I've looked it up a fox makes more sense.

I disagree with Persian. I think it looks more like a panther/mountain lion/leopard than a cat. I'd call Meowth more like a cat

A panther, mountain lion or leopard would still be a cat.

My brother is a total pokenerd so just by living in the same house as him makes it impossible not to know every pokemon by heart. Seriously, he knew everything about gen7 before it even came out on tv

Got 12, the only one I actually know was squirtle (and I think besides that picachu is the only one I know by name and look) so the rest by analysing the names, missed some that seem obvious in hindsight, others I would ve never come up with.

Actually, Sudowoodo is not a tree, It's based on a Petrified wood. That's why it's only a rock type but not grass.

Please accept "bonsai" for Soodowoodo. It's the kind of tree Soodowoodo resembles.
