Pokémon in our Biomes pt. 5: Tropical Rainforests (1 of 2)

I’ve recently 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.

Thank you all SO much for the feedback and love! I am so happy you’re enjoying these posts so far, because I love making them. PLEASE reblog if you like it, and make sure you check out my other PIOB posts at my blog!

EDIT: I just made a quick addition to the Pokémon listed here. It seems that I didn’t focus nearly as much on the Pokémon actually LIVING in the jungle, so I just made a little edit to fix that. Enjoy the read!

I am especially excited for this one. Suggested by cari28ch3-me, this post will be on Pokémon found in tropical rainforests. Growing up I had a ton of animal and plant encyclopedias, hence my love for the wilderness and ecology. The tropical rainforest plants and animals were always my favourite because of the immense diversity, morphology, and beauty a lot of the species in this biome have. A lot of moisture, humidity, and rainfall, an amazing abundance of plant life needs to grow as high as possible to catch the sun before it is filtered to the shadowy ground below, allowing for a huge environment among the trees that different species can utilize as habitats. I can promise you, I will not have all the Pokémon you can think of in this post. I will more than likely be making a second tropical rainforest post, just to compensate the ones forgotten in this post because frankly, if I had ALL of them in this post, it would be ridiculously long.

Unfortunately, the beautiful environment found in tropical rainforests across the world are being depleted due to deforestation. We all know this, it’s not anything new. If you should feel compelled to donate to the conservation effort, you can do so here: http://www.rainforest-alliance.org/

Let’s get started!
