I did horrible at this since I don't know my Pokemon (or elements apparently); however, I nominated it because I love the idea.

I only got 2 out of 20 the first time I took it. Six months later I took it a second tmie and got 19 out of 20. Apparently taking an inordinate amount of JetPunk quizzes has made me smarter.

Pretty impressive that you scored that badly, considering you have a 50% chance on each question if you just guess

Absolutely love the idea of this. I know my Pokemon so it wasn't too hard but some of them really do sound like elements! Great idea for a quiz

I do not think I know or remember any of those Pokémons, but I know whole periodic table, so it was nice process of elimination :P Nice idea for the quiz.

The idea of this is great. I know my elements moreso than my Pokemon, so this was fairly easy but a little more challenging on the Pokemon end. Excellent quiz!

Very very cool. Thought process:

"Do I recognise it?"

Yes = Element

No = Pokemon

When I started, I thought my knowledge of Pokemon would be more helpful on this quiz. Somewhat surprisingly, it actually turned out to be my knowledge of the Periodic Table.

Don't know Pokemon, but I do know all the elements, so... by process of elimination. But this was a fun quiz and I can see that quite a few Pokemon do in fact sound like elements.

It's only been an element since recently. Some people may have outdated science knowledge due to learning from an outdated source.

20/20 I only know the names of like two Pokemons (Pikachu and Squirtle), but at least I'm decent with the periodic table!

I wonder if it's bad that I only got 100 percent due to my knowledge of Pokémon rather than science xD

You should add "both" as an option for every question, even if it applies to none, just to mess with people!

20/20 pretty quickly; not familiar with most pokemon, but I majored in a chemistry oriented field, so at least I knew how to recognize the elements

Cool quiz, I expected it to be extremely easy but then looking at some of them I realized why this concept made sense because a lot of Pokemon names do sound like elements lol, I got 19/20 just missed Gadolinium which didn't really sound like a Pokemon and I didn't recognize it too well from the elements

Knew zero of those Pokemon characters...scored 100%. I'm satisfied with memorizing the Periodic table over those.

I'm a Pokemon nerd so this quiz was very easy but like I never realized how much some Pokemon sound like elements and vice versa. If I didn't know anything about either I definitely would've thought Aggron and Lumineon were elements.

It seems the twain don't mix, like people would either be science geeks or Pokemon geeks and either way score 100%.
