Pokémon That Are Based On Real People
There are some Pokémonin the Pokémon franchise that are based on real people, rather than animals, machines, or myths. Pokémon Red and Green were partly inspired by Satoshi Tajiri’s love of collecting bugs as a child, which is why so many Pokémon are based on things from the natural world.
A common complaint about the Pokémon franchise is that its designs have become less original over the years. People often point to Pokémon like Vanilluxe, Comfey, and Klefki in support of this opinion. People often ignore the fact that Pokémon Red and Blue had their fair share of boring Pokémon designs, like Voltorb, Grimer, and Geodude. Not all Pokémon need to stand out from the crowd, as all of the games need their share of ‘dex filler, so there’s no reason to hate on new Pokémon for not having outrageous designs.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)
Sir Elton John
“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
