Pokémon in our Biomes: Halloween Special 🎃
decided to make a series of posts with hypothetical thinking and analyzing of
what Pokémon species could potentially be found in the world’s biomes. Not at
all relative to the games, I will be focusing primarily of the elements,
design, and relativity to real life flora and fauna of Pokémon to depict where
different species would roam on our big blue marble.”
One common struggle that I seem to be having while working on these biome posts is that a lot of Pokémon who have more spiritual or telekinetic abilities are a little bit harder to place as they don’t physically have abilities the species may have evolved to their respective environments. For example, many grass Pokémon often have adapted elastic, retractable, prehensile vines. It can be argued that they evolved this from a form of root system and utilize it as a form of mobility and appendage. However, species of Pokémon that are usually Psychic, Dark, Ghost, or Fairy type are a little bit trickier to place in biomes because they may not have obvious physical features they can utilize in their environments.
Seeing as Halloween is here, I thought I’d be a good idea to focus a Pokémon in Our Biomes Post on the unexplainable: Pokémon who don’t necessarily have physical traits that are adapted to aid in their fitness. I thought it might make sense to focus on a common theme for spiritual Pokémon which is that they all more or less require some kind of spiritual energy, and this is a common theme in places like haunted houses, graveyards, abandoned hospitals or theme parks, old woods, sewers, and places that are constantly hiding from the care and security of daylight.
You may have heard a couple of these Pokémon as having particularly weird or creepy Pokédex entries. Hopefully we can shed some light onto what it all means.
Get ready for a Gastly Pokémon in our Biomes Post, where we will talk about any Pokémon that is scary, spooky, spectral, apparitional, unholy, divine, and unearthly.
