Almost every child or adult that grew up within the last 25 years knows of Pokemon. It is perhaps the largest byproduct to come out of the Japanese entertainment/anime industry. Be it the game or the anime, pokemon are everywhere.
Pokémon, also known as Pocket Monsters[b] in Japan, is a Japanese media franchise managed by The Pokémon Company, a company founded by Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures with shares divided between the companies. The franchise copyright and Japanese trademark are shared by all three companies, but Nintendo is the sole owner of the trademark in other countries. The franchise was created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995 and is centered on fictional creatures called "Pokémon," which humans, known as Pokémon Trainers, catch and train to battle each other for sport. The English slogan for the franchise is "Gotta Catch 'Em All."
Works within the franchise are set in the Pokémon universe. Based on the game, Pokemon was also made into an anime television series, and today, ti even have movies made on it. The anime follows the quest of the main character, Ash Ketchum (known as Satoshi in Japan), a Pokémon Master in training, as he and a small group of friends travel around the world of Pokémon along with their Pokémon partners.
Various children's books, collectively known as Pokémon Junior, are also based on the anime. A new seven-part anime series called Pokémon: Twilight Wings began airing on YouTube in 2020. The series was animated by Studio Colorido. Besides Pokemon, K-Pop is the most relevant industry in entertainment currently.
How would it be if our favorite K-Pop idols were to become pokemon for a day? Who do you think your idol would transform into? Here's a list of K-Pop idols and the pokemon we think they would be.
1. TWICE NAYEON - SQUIRTLE
Squirtle is an adorable water type pokemon and the similarities to TWICE's Nayeon are simply hard to miss.
2. BTS V - EEVEE
V has long been compared to Eevve, with fans often coming up on fansigns and gifting him plushies of Eevee. This foxy little adorable ball of sunshine is the perfect match for BTS vitamin V.
3. BTS JIN - CHARMANDER
This fire type pokemon with its unique personality where he does what he wants and when he wants is eerily similar to Jin's. It is well known that Jin does whatever he wants to, whether it comes to V-Live or his hair. Safe to say Jin is definitely Charmander.
4. DAY6 DOWOON - WOBBUFFET
Wobbuffet is a psychic-type pokemon and the pokemon twin of Dowwon's personality in real life. It also helps that both their smiles can light up the world.
5. SEVENTEEN WOOZI - SKITTY
The comparisons between Woozi and Skitty are simply innumerable. It is simple impossible to avoid the similarities between the two and as such, Woozi would definitely be the ever so magical Skitty.
6. BLACKPINK JISOO - CHIKORITA
This grass type pokemon is just as pretty as Jisoo and also just as sweet. However, it can also be badass when it needs to be, also like Jisoo.
7. BAEKHYUN - CLEFAIRY
Needless to say that this cute fairy type pokemon would undoubtedly be Bakhyun's spirit animal..or spirit pokemon if we may say so. Friendship is an important element required for Clefairy to evolve and so with Baekhyun as well. We all know his social skills make him become friends with whoever he pleases.
