Posted on Aug 26, 2016
Pokémon are apparently real creatures and they live around us. And it's not because of Pokémon GO. Don't believe us? Take a look at these 13 pictures.
It is pretty obvious that Kakuna is Cocoon. Easy to guess, isn't it?
It wasn't really hard to figure - Caterpie is a caterpillar, more precisely - the Eastern Swallowtail Caterpillar.
This one is from the Ammonoidea family and it is a rock and a water type Pokémon.
4. Bee Drill
Bee Drill is actually the Asian Giant Hornet. It looks really scary and mean.
Victreebel is based on the Pitcher Plant, which is a carnivorous plant.
Vileplum looks cute, but it is actually Rafflesia arnoldii in real life - the plant that is nicknamed "corpse." So, It's not something you'd give to your girlfriend!
Charmander is based on the Giant Chinese Salamander. It makes sense.
This one is inspired by the Ospreys, known as the sea hawk.
Seaking is based on the Calico Ryukin Goldfish. It's a goldfish with a horn!
Metapod is also a caterpillar but in a cocoon.
Poliwag is inspired by the translucent tadpole. The resemblance is obvious.
