I love Pokémon and have been watching the anime/cartoon ever since I was a little child! Pokémon is still popular!


Before We Start, Here are the Rules!

This article is for the diehard Pokémon fans. On some levels, we all wish that the pocket monsters exist in the real world because we can become trainers, coordinators or performers.

Before we start the list, here are some rules. Legendary and mythical Pokémon are off limits because they are extremely rare and hard to catch. Pseudo-legendary Pokémon are not off limits because you can catch them or their pre-evolved forms in the wild. Only six Pokémon will be picked because you can only have 6 in your party at one time. However, some backup options are available.


A psychic Pokémon is a must have in your party. But, which one is the best? The short answer is Gardevoir and here are the reasons:

  • Knows the move teleport - this move can easily transport you from place to place. No transportation fees! You will save tons of money. Also, get you out of dangerous situations immediately!
  • Knows the move life dew - this move restores the HP of user and allies. Gardevoir can heal itself and other Pokémon on your team. This is very convenient for you to not have to run back and forth to the Pokémon center.
  • Gardevoir is a psychic and fairy combo Pokémon. It can learn good attacking moves like psychic, moonblast and aura sphere. Psychic and moonblast are stab moves that can deal massive damage to other Pokémon that are weak to psychic and fairy moves.
  • Best of all, Gardevoir is known to be extremely loyal to its trainer. When the bond between Gardevoir and trainer deepens, it's power is increased. It will even protect its trainer with its life.

Corviknight or Dragonite

Even though Gardevoir can teleport you to get around, it's still good to have a flying type Pokémon that can give you the delight of flight. Corviknight is one of the best flying type Pokémon in the Galar region. Unlike most flying types, Corviknight is a large bird which is important for stable flight when carrying people around. It is known for its intelligence and success in the Pokémon taxi business in Galar. So, it really excels at transporting people around.

As an alternative, consider Dragonite for the flying Pokémon spot. This dragon and flying type Pokémon is also a decent size (slightly smaller than Corviknight) that can carry most people around town.


Alolan Marowak

You will need a fire Pokémon on your team. Alolan Marowak is a fire and ghost type Pokémon that can do many things for you in the real life!

  • With fire moves, it can light up dark caves for you.
  • With fire moves, it can help you make a little fireplace for your beach bonfire parties.
  • With fire moves, it can help you stay warm when you are exploring a cold and icy environment such as the mountains.
  • With its ghost typing, it can save you in dangerous situations when other ghosts or ghost type Pokémon try to harm you. Remember the Ghoul Daze episode!

Wailord or Gyarados

Pick Wailord as your water Pokémon when you want to travel across water in comfort and style. This huge water type Pokémon has plenty of space on its back for you, your family and friends to comfortably travel. However, you need deep pockets to have this Pokémon on your team. Wailord eats a school of Wishiwashi at a time! It's not surprising that such a huge Pokémon eats that much to maintain its energy level!

A more realistic water type Pokémon to have on your team is definitely Gyarados. This water and flying type Pokémon is evolved from the small and extremely weak Magikarp. Anyone can catch a Magikarp and evolve it into a mighty Gyarados with the proper love and training. Even a shiny Magikarp can be caught because Magikarps are so abundant in the wild. This powerful water and flying Pokémon can comfortably carry you around large bodies of water, fight off other water Pokémon that try to attack you, and give you fresh water when needed. Just have it use its hydro pump attack and drink the fresh water from this attack! You will never have to worry about running out of water.


Boltund or Rotom or Dedenne

This spot belongs to an electric type Pokémon for obvious reasons. You need electricity and these Pokémon can generate it for you without any fees. But you can just pay for electricity, right? What if the electricity is out because your electricity provider wants to do routine maintenance or save energy? An electric Pokémon will provide you with what you need. Instead of picking the ever so popular Pikachu, let's explore some other good options.

Boltund - It is an electric type dog. Do I need to say more? Also known as man's best friend, this electric dog can provide you with electricity along with its love. This is like hitting two birds with one stone. If you are an avid dog lover, this electric dog is the best option for you.

Rotom - This electric and ghost type Pokémon is not only good for providing electricity but also keeping you entertained all the time. Sometimes, it will give you too much entertainment because it's very mischievous and pulls pranks that will make you mad. On the other hand, this little Pokémon can possess different appliances and change its type. Think about the utility! By having this Pokémon, it can use different types of moves (fire, water, flying, ice, and grass) all the time. This is very useful for real life.

Dedenne - Go with this electric mouse if you want a cute Pokémon. With electric and fairy typing, this electric mouse is obviously modeled after the infamous Pikachu. It is even smaller and cuter than Pikachu. Although its attacks are not very strong, it can still use stab electric and fairy moves. By learning the move rest, it can recover its own HP. Less trips to the Pokémon Center!


Duraludon or Steelix

The last spot is given to a steel type Pokémon. The steel type is an awesome defensive type that resists 10 different types and immune to poison moves. It will be able to withstand a Pokémon battle with many different types of Pokémon in the real world. Remember the pesky poison condition? Steel types are immune to all poison moves.

Duraludon - Are you familiar with this strong steel and dragon type Pokémon? This is the main Pokémon for Raihan, the second strongest trainer in the Galar region. He loses only to Champion Leon. With strong attacks and swift movements, Duraludon is going to be a very good bodyguard for you. You don't have to worry about people trying to harm you ever!

Steelix - Are you a big fan of Brock? Then, you will want to have Brock's signature Pokémon, Steelix. This powerful steel Pokémon can mega evolve and get even bigger! You will also want to pick Steelix if you are a big fan of rock and ground type attack moves as Steelix is evolved from Onix.


Finally, Is It Possible for Pokémon To Be Real?

Sorry to break it to everyone, but Pokémon will never be real. Think about all the overpowered legendary and mythical Pokémon! They will destroy our world very easily. Even the everyday Pokémon have overpowered moves that can bring destruction to our world. Humans are probably not going to be able to exist peacefully with Pokémon due to our innate aggressive nature. Do you agree? Comment below.
