    I know this is an overused concept, but I'm really interested. If you were gonna have a team IRL, name the 6.
    Mine would definitely start with Salamence, but idk where it'd go from there. What about you?

    And for clarification: This is not about stats, abilities, etc. Just like, I'd love to have a salamence because it's incredibly bad-ass and awesome looking. And it can fly.

    Is it implied that we're ignoring "competitive pokemon" and assuming a more "anime/manga - style" pokemon, where Pikachu can OHKO Rhydon/Onix with Thundershock? Because otherwise, people would just want their competitive teams :P

    Rotom would be great, as it can transform to every forme. Like, wanna wash something? Change it to Rotom-W. :3

    without going legendary, my would probably be:
    Ditto - obvious.
    maybe Castform - got to love having weather control. same will go for eq users (wahahaha.. yeah I got issues).
    probably Celebi - I can sure use some time travel capabilities, even without a rewrite option.
    maybe Unown - Transdimensional travel can be interesting too.
    Gardevoir - Teleport, Hypnosis, Future Sight, trick, Telepathy, so many possibilities (not even counting the... better not go there ^^).
    maybe Shedinja - obvious.
    maybe Porygon - - got to have so useful cyberspace potential.
    and definitely Smeargle - remember in the anime there is no 4 move limit ! could end up knowing all moves in existence (with the proper training).

    If Pokemon were real, you'd have Groudon, Vulpix and Ninetales causing Droughts, Kyogre and Politoed causing heavy rain to fall everywhere, Tyranitar, Hippopotas and Hippowdon causing terrible sandstorms and Snover and Abomasnow causing terrible blizzards.

    Meanwhile, everything would be causing Earthquakes to happen, multiple volcanic Eruptions would be happening, Hurricanes and Twisters would be everywhere, and you'd have Dragons going on an Outrage.

    Not to mention the large amount of Hyper Beams searing the sky, Draco Meteors obliterating the earth, Darkrai dragging you into the Dark Void, Dialga reshaping time with his Roar of Time, Palkia changing space with Spacial Rend, Aggron eating mountains - say goodbye to Everest, people being put under spells through Hypnosis and people dying after hearing a Pokemon's Perish Song.

    Add to that the widespread paralysis, poison, confusion, attraction, Intimidation, burns, sleep and freezings, people flinching to everything, Trick Room, Arceus casting Judgement upon us all (THERE IS A GOD!), Magikarp... err... splashing around..., Ghost types running around casting Curses and Nightmares, Zap Cannons being fired everywhere and critical hits making us all "faint"...

    No, Pokemon being real would suck.

    Ignoring all that, I'd like Mew.

    lol at Oak...

    But yeh we are not Ash who never really seemed to get burned to death by Charizard's Flamethrower but that same flame could cause anything else to burn...

    Sometimes when i walk down the street of my country i wuould imagine what type of pokemon would be in my region... Like fire types around the volcano, lots of water types in the oceans (I live in the Caribbean) a some Pansage and Simisage we got lots of monkeys :D

    Oddly I had this fantasy where i found a Larvitar egg then I started my journey and continued on and got a Pupitar and it evolved into Tyranitar while i was challenging the champion (during the match at a really critical moment) at the Regional league because of love and encouragement lol EPIC...

    Reality dictates that governments (which don't seem to exist in the anime unless the world is controlled by Officer Jenny) would wage epic wars with Pokemon yada yada and blah blah chaos etc :/

    How about this. Wild Pokemon would randomly attack people and kill them, because unlike people in the anime, we people are mortal. Everyone would be vegetarian, cos Blaziken is too cool, and Magikarp can be cool if it evolves. But I'd like Zoroark to take my place in school.

    Let's see, if Pokémon were real...

    Well, better say good-bye to Earth. Extreme rain, sun, sandstorms and hail would be afflicting the world, space travel would become nearly impossible with Rayquaza patrolling the Ozone layer, Earthquakes happening just about everywhere, people getting slaughtered by random Hyper Beams and Giga Impacts, governments getting broke from repairs, hospitals getting crazy rich from all those visits from people getting injured from stray attacks from the Pokémon battle next door... Yeah...

    Then again, let's look on the bright side. New, cheap (*cough*free*cough*) labor would be introduced, airplanes would become obsolete, travel time would increase quite a bit, and... A new source of entertainment, perhaps?

    I dunno, I find it doubtful Pokemon will or even want to bother destroying the world. :P
    For example, Earthquakes would probably impact only the immediate vicinity at a low scale, and there'd be Pokemon around to help make products that work against it anyways (String Shot support glue? Reflect support frames?).

    The world would collapse in 2012.

    And btw, if we were like people in the anime, we would prolly live forever.

    Yellowstone. One really bad earthquake there could theoretically cause a super-volcanic eruption that could end all life on the planet.

    Charizard (preferably Shiny), Haxorus, Salamence, Garchomp, Hydreigon, and Dragonite, simply because I find this to be an incredibly badass combination of six Pokémon.

    Look at the bright side, Articuno could minimize the effects of global warming.

    That's primarily because the anime is completely weird.
    The police force would likely have Pokemon too, and would be more organized and better trained than most criminals.

    But there will be so many Earthquakes being used that will destroy the world. Have you seen how many Pokémon learn the move?

    Well, it always seemed to me that the earthquakes Pokémon use somehow have quite a limited perimeter, both in the games and manga. Ah, and the anime too.

    Groudon's Earthquake and Marowak's Earthquake would be enough to tear the US in half. Like, literally in half.

    Clearly not, if the manga and anime are any indication.
    Although I don't trust the anime, I figure the manga is more accurate as to their power scales.

    Just realized: Not sure if pokemon were real, would that make the series a documentary or reality tv.
    But I think it would make the games look a lot like video games that simulates sports games.

    Than all the fossils would say things like:
    "when I was your age we didn't just stayed home and played pokemon games,
    we actually got out to the sun and got some exercise having actual real pokemon battles,
    which were much more complex and fun from your little screen's simulations".

    or "don't release the new Dunsparce grandma got you ! Do you now there are people who would wish to have one ?"
    to be replayed by "I agree this was horrible of me. Tell me where they are and I'll teleport it's pokeball right away."

    or "if you don't walk your damn Growlithe don't be surprised he's biting you ! If it was me I'd fire fang your ass by now"

    or "you just had to bring it with you and ruin a perfectly good picnic didn't you ? next time no Politoed ! couldn't you bring Ninetales today instead of to our last ski trip" ?"

    or "man that was a long day, I just wanna sit back and watch some tv" (cause some things will never change ^^).

    Oh yes, Jirachi. So someone punches you at school and you get Jirachi to flinch-hax them to death with Iron Head. I would love to have Jirachi as well - as a hit-man.

    Spikes...

    Still, we'd have giant Tentacruels ranting through our city every so often. Also the humans ABOOS magikarps for deciding tourney matches. ._.
