About This Quiz

What began as a concept for a game back in 1989 is now one of the biggest game/cartoon/movie and toy franchises in the world. The creator, Satoshi Tajiri, says the idea for the franchise was inspired by his childhood hobby of insect collecting, and when Pokemon first came to be, it was meant only for the recently released GameBoy. Popularity, of course, propelled these creatures to places that Tajiri never thought it would go.

Currently, there are over 800 species and the number is steadily growing. Of course, there are favorites like Pikachu and Squirtle, that are easily identified because they appear in so many episodes, but what about the lesser-known Pokemon? Would you be able to name Ghastly, Parasect and Magneton if you saw a picture of them?

This quiz may be easy for experts, but you have to be careful because we've added some evolved forms that you may have never seen before. Our clues are there to help you, by telling you the kind of Pokemon it is. That, of course, will make guessing the creature's name a lot easier, even if you have no idea who it is. So are you ready to get started on one of the best Pokemon quizzes on the internet? Let's see if you and Ash Ketchum could go toe to toe!
