I saw this gorgeous pic and decided to give all the Big Hero 6 members a Pokemon team (well, I replaced Baymax with Tadashi, but w/e). SO, here goes! Big Hero 6 Pokemon crossover aww yee
Tadashi: Meganium, Chansey, Altaria, Herdier, Audino, Kangaskhan
Tadashi would have a combination of gentle, nurturing Pokemon, and ones that are pretty loyal. He wouldn’t really like battling that much, he’d be much more interested in Pokemon research, so his style would concentrate on higher defense/special defense and slowly draining opponents’ HP through annoying status moves. I gave him Chansey and Audino because they’re soft, gentle healers (like Baymax, duh). Meganium because it’s based on that fanart, and also I think of Meganium as a really gentle and sweet Pokemon. Herdier is really loyal and protective, as is Kangaskhan, plus they’re literally “the parent Pokemon.” And idk, I just liked the thought of him having an Altaria.
Hiro: Charizard, Metagross, Magnezone, Sableye, Lucario, Cubone
Hiro is a typical fanboy; he loves anything that looks awesome and kicks ass. He’s the youngest League Champion ever, going for all-out speedy offense (he specializes in one-hit-KOs). He uses his status as Champion to get himself into and out of a lot of trouble, much to Tadashi’s dismay, who believes Hiro should use his abilities to help people. Since Hiro is into robotics, I wanted to give him some kind of man-made, robitc type Pokemon, hence Metagross and Magnezone. Charizard is just what I consider to be one of the most badass Pokemon, plus he flies (a reference to Hiro flying around on Baymax). I gave him Lucario because of the martial arts thing, and Cubone because of the whole dead-mother thing (only in this case it’s dead brother, but w/e).
GoGo: Ninjask, Jolteon, Greninja, Weavile, Crobat, Gogoat
GoGo’s got the fastest team around. She’s all about a quick battle that consists of hard-hitting punches, moves designed to slow opponents down, and evasion. She holds the world record in the Speed Pokeathlon and trains for it by constantly cruising around Cycling Road; stay out of her way, unless you want a beating. GoGo’s team is pretty obvious, they’re the Pokemon with the highest base speed (non-legendary and non-mega-evolutions). Plus Gogoat because I COULDN’T RESIST.
Honey Lemon: Glameow, Sylveon, Reuniclus, Empoleon, Milotic, Vileplume
Don’t let Honey’s adorable team fool you; they’re tough! While she mostly loves dressing her Pokemon up for the contest circuit (she’s untouchable in the cute contest), she also is a top researcher for both Silph Co. and Devon Co, mostly studying various chemical reactions Pokemon poisons have. When she does battle, her strategy mostly consists of messing you up with status condition moves and distracting Pokemon with Cute Charm. I gave Honey a lot of cute/“girly” Pokemon to match her love of fashion and bubbly personality, so Glameow, Sylveon and Milotic made the most sense. With her chemistry background, I wanted her to have Pokemon that could cause various status damage/just struck me as sciencey, so I gave her Reuniclus and Vileplume. (And Empoleon cuz I needed someone to have a Gen 4 starter OTL)
Fred: Magmar, Hawlucha, Tyranitar, Sceptile, Wheezing, Bidoof
Fred annoys all the local Officer Jennys by trying to be a vigilante superhero. His heart’s in the right place, and he often does help stop some crime (although he usually just causes more damage than necessary in order to catch the perp). His strategy involves spewing fire and gas and packing punches. Fred’s team ties into his Fredzilla mode and love of comics. Magmar and Wheezing fit this pretty directly, I think, and Tyranitar is kind of like Godzilla, so that works well, too. Sceptile is lizard-like, and Bidoof is pretty goofy, like Fred.
Wasabi: Gallade, Aggron, Excadrill, Emboar, Aegislash, Sandshrew
Wasabi is the cleanest, neatest Pokemon breeder the world has ever seen. He likes a quiet simple life for him and his team, and tries to avoid battling whenever possible. He surrounds himself with tough-looking Pokemon, but they are just as kind-hearted and gentle as Wasabi. Most of Wasabi’s team is based on his hero outfit; Gallade, Excadrill, and Aegislash all have blades/swords. Aggron’s PokeDex entry talks about how it rebuilds its territory if it gets messed up, which reminded me of Wasabi’s OCD neatness. Wasabi is also kind of a scaredy-cat, so I thought that Sandshrew, which curls up into a ball when threatened, was also a good fit.
