In between "Pokémon" journeys, Jeremy enjoys working as a pharmaceutical chemist and campus manager.

Generation 1 Pokemon

Generation 1 Pokemon

Gotta Catch 'Em All!

The magical world of Pokémon features creatures with incredible powers. Nostalgic fans like myself probably best remember the original 151 monsters (known as Generation 1) the best. We collected cards, played video games, and argued about the ideal starter to choose. Now it's time to determine the Pokémon that actually represents you best! Which one will you be?

You'll be glad to know Electabuzz and its ridiculous battle cry aren't included.

This table shows the meaning of each possible result:

Pikachu

You are the sociable Pikachu, an electric type. Your good nature, optimism, and adorable look have made you one of the most popular Pokemon. You are very social, but occasionally feel grumpy or lonely. Your speed and electrical attacks offer a shock to unsuspecting foes. You evolve from a pipsqueak.

Haunter

You are the lonesome Haunter, a Ghost type. Wait, a Ghost type? So.. you're dead? Yeesh, that's creepy. Anyway, you're likely full of conflicting emotions. Why are you here? What's keeping you from departing to the beyond? Many Haunter are known to sap the life from others until they die. Will you be one of them? Or will you use your paranormal powers for good-natured pranks and tricks? Force of evil, or spreader of joy, only you know what impact your afterlife will have on the world..

Charmander

You are the hopeful Charmander, a Fire type. You enjoy time with friends, but deep down you know your destiny lies along a different path. You desire to maximize your potential, develop into an unstoppable force, and challenge any worthy opponent. Though you know you must one day leave your loved ones, you are incredibly loyal to them. Since you were born with a flame on your tail, it must have been a real struggle to be pregnant with you.

Hitmonlee

You are the diligent Hitmonlee, a Fighting type. You train hard, and you are mentally secure. Your kicks are incredibly powerful, and you can double the length of your legs to catch foes off guard. You are comfortable around others, confident in your abilities, and your name is based on a guy who played ping pong with nunchucks - and won.

Wartortle

You are the wise Wartortle, a Water type. Your tendency to hunt belies your intellect and clever mind. You are popular among the elderly because you are a symbol of longevity; you can live up to 10,000 years of age. Your shell's dents indicate the fights, pain, and sorrow you've seen, but you are strong enough not to give into despair.

Mewtwo

You are the savage Mewtwo, a Psychic type. You are virtually undefeatable, and loathe mankind for their crimes against you. Genetic experiments created you, and you feel detached and isolated from others. But.. could there be good in you? Maybe, in time, you can learn to be more than your horrific origins.

Thanks Missy! I'm sure I'll enjoy reading your hub.

I thought this hub was very nice. I enjoyed taking the quiz. I can tell you are really knowledgeable when it comes to Pokemon. I, myself, just wrote a new hub on the subject of Pokemon. I had a fun time, my 8 year old son collaborated with me on some final touches. Pokemon are very cute and interesting characters, and I can see why they have gathered and maintained a great following. :)
