Can You Name Each of these Pokémon?


The Japanese have created some of the most popular and culture-shifting art in history. Few could argue that Pokémon tops that list of achievements in terms of mass appeal. When Pokémon first hit the western market, it exploded — almost overnight. It's no wonder the Poké-mania continues today, with Detective Pikachu breaking box office records. Are you one of the world's biggest Pokémon fans? Most fans could guess the main creatures, and maybe a few of the more obscure ones, too. But, we're betting there's no way you could possibly get 100% of these questions correct. This isn't just any old ordinary quiz... In the questions that follow, we're going to start off with all the easy ones and then make these characters more and more obscure as the quiz continues. By the time you get to the end — if you can even get that far — you will know for sure if you truly are the fountain of Poké-knowledge you believe. When you're done, share our Pokémon quiz with your friends to discover the ultimate Pokémon Master!

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Who Invented Pokémon and Why?

The entire concept of the Pokémon universe was created by the visionary Satoshi Tajiri, who originally considered the same premise with a few significant changes. As a child, Tajiri liked to collect insects. He would create professional entomologist-style traps, such as bottle traps, malaise traps, and flight interception. He was so obsessed with insects that his friends began calling him "Dr. Bug". As he grew up, his dreams of becoming a professional entomologist faded, and his love of arcade games flourished. By the time Tajiri created Gamefreak (the founding company of Pokémon), he had already decided to combine his two greatest passions — entomology and computer games — into the Pokémon Universe we know and love today.
