A video showing Pokemon that exist in real life is getting millions of views on YouTube.
On YouTube, Fact Verse posted a video entitled “10 Pokemon That Actually Exist In Real Life”; featuring Pokemon Drowzee, Pikachu, Magikarp, Emolga, Poliwag, Caterpie, Venusaur, Victreebel, Luvdisc, and Bulbasaur.
Drowzee is a mysterious looking Pokemon which was inspired by Baku.
“The name Baku has two meanings in Japanese. The first is a Malaysian taper which is a vegetarian pig. The other meaning is a mythical Japanese creature that enters a person’s dreams and nightmares,” the voice-over on the video said; further describing the other characters.
The inspiration of Pikachu comes from a mouse-like creature called Pika mouse.
“They’re found in the remote mountain regions in Asia. There are actually 23 species of this mouse…. This animal is actually very rare. There are only about 1000 pika mice in the world. They make a very high-pitched sound just like a Pikachu does.”
The Magikarp is a water Pokemon which is inspired by the yellow Rockfish.
“Magikarp is inspired by the yellow Rockfish the two actually look identical to one another. The only difference between the two is that the yellow rockfish can do much more damage than the Magikarp.”
Emolga, one of the most adorable Pokemons, is inspired by a flying squirrel.
“He gets his inspiration from the flying squirrel. Both the flying squirrel and Emolga can glide. Thanks to the membranes between their arms and legs,” it was noted.
Poliwag is inspired by a tadpole.
“This is a perfect example of Pokemon that actually exist in real life. Poliwag is a water type tadpole. It’s inspired by a translucent pollywog ith proposed cuts in ahead that resemble the swirly lines of the translucent pollywog. Poliwag is much cuter than the real-life translucent pollywog. The two are very similar and they both have a similar personality.”
