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.

Which Classic Pokemon Are You?

You are the sociable Pikachu, an Electric-type. Your good nature, optimism, and adorable look have made you one of the most popular Pokémon. 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.



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 Haunters 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...



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.



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.



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 in to despair.



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.

And try not to feel too bad. You know Mew, your rare and adorable genetic host? At least you're not as deformed as its original sprite design.

      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. :)
