Luvdisc The 721 Pokemon Naming Challenge

Back in the day there was a very popular 'Name The 151 Pokemon' Challenge, so when I stumbled upon this I was too excited to come here and share it with you all!

I knew I wouldn't be able to get 721 (mostly due to Generation V and VI and my awful memory) but I got a rather pitiful 216. I completely blanked on lots of middle evolutions of evolution lines I thought I was confident with, like the middle Ice Cream Pokemon and the all middle starter evolutions after Generation 3. Not to mention I forgot so many Pokemon I love in the heat of the moment under the pressure (I'm sorry Luvdisc! I'm sorry Zebstrika!).

Made me also realise how many Pokemon I literally had just forgotten existed, like Chatot! And also I totally realised it's got to the point where in the later generations I can't remember which Pokemon belong in which generation. Lots of Pokemon in Generation 4 and 5 I had to double take on and think 'wait, really?'. Also Generation 4 is huge and then 5 and 6 added so few Pokemon comparatively.

Have a go, post your score! Let the fun begin xd;

I gave it about ten minutes and got to 221, left because of wanting to do other things.

My overall starting strategy is: Starters>Legends>Pseudos>Fossils>Megas>Regional rodent>Regional bird>Pokken roster

Then I just put in what pops to mind.

Got 326. Not too bad for 5 AM.

It seems I only missed 8 in Gen 1, and did worse and worse as the gens went on.

482/721 with 7 minutes left, had to stop because of family arriving. I'll have a proper go later.

EDIT: In the full time on try 2, I got 559. I will do this repeatedly until I can get all 721. I'll see if I can do it. I seem to forget large chunks of gens 1, 3 and surprisingly, 4.

Did it, got 529, so pretty good I guess. Having not played Gen 6 I missed a lot there, other than that the spread was pretty even. Missed some pretty obvious ones like the Porygon line, Psyduck line, and Blissey/Happiny even though I remembered Chansey.

I WAS SO FRIGGIN' CLOSE! >_< 708 out of 721! Only missed Shellder, Cloyster, Shuckle, Meditite, Medicham, Electrike, Manectric, Baltoy, Claydol, Cherubi, Cherrim, and oddly enough, Mismagius and Honchkrow, despite getting their pre-evolutions no problem.

I got 429. My goal was to remember more than half, so mission accomplished, but I'm disappointed in myself for missing some of the ones I did. After looking at what I missed I feel like I should have been in IT's range, maybe a bit lower. Here's the breakdown:

Gen 1: 121/151, ~80%
Really kicking myself for missing anything, but especially the Nido lines. Realistically, this is the only gen where I feel like I could have gotten everything.

Gen 2: 52/100, 52%
Disappointingly low. And as a UPN member I should be ashamed for missing Jumpluff and Wobbuffett lines

Gen 3: 87/135, ~64%
Ruby was my first game so I thought this would be my best. Guess I'm a genwunner after all.

Gen 4: 71/107, ~66%
Wait I did better in Gen 4 too? Definitely not expecting that. I guess I did start competitive battling in Gen 4 so that might have something to do with it.

Gen 5: 70/156, ~45%
I feel like I definitely still should have gotten a majority of Pokemon here so I'm a bit disappointed. Especially because I missed a bunch of favorites: Krookodile, Chandelure, Haxorus. This is also the first gen where I missed any of the legendaries.

Gen 6: 28/72, ~39%
Yikes. I should probably replay Y to refresh my memory.

I had 336 at the 20-minute mark. (No photo.) But I took the full 40 minutes, and I got 528. I was on a roll and could've gotten many more but no excuses!


(click pictures for full size)

It's interesting to see different fans' biases of information and memory recall. Looking at my own test, for instance:
  • you can see a strong bias towards the original 151 (of which I only mind blanked on two)
  • you see that the generation with the greatest number of omissions is Gen V, which also happens to be the largest generation out of the most recent three
You'll have to take my word for it, but I know every single Pokémon's name in Gen V. (As I'm sure many of you do too.) So why then is Gen V so sparse in my list compared to other generations? It all boils down to memory recall modalities:
  • I remembered creatures I'm personally attached to
  • I remembered the creatures that have been around the longest (which is relative to your own time spent in the fandom, but for me starts at the very beginning with Gen 1)
  • I remembered the creatures that featured on gym leaders' and Elite Four members' teams in the video games and anime, and on Ash & Co.'s teams in the anime
A lot of the Pokémon I'm missing don't fall under any of these three categories. There are some that do, of course. Swanna (on Skyla's team), Palpitoad (on Ash's team), etc. But even then, they weren't the most prominent of Pokémon in the games or anime. At least not to me. (Obviously! )

Evolutions tend to be really easy. Once you remember anybody in the line, it's like a game of Battleship: you know there are hits nearby and it's just a matter of recalling their names. Single-stage Pokémon are a lot harder: either you remember them or you don't. (Both of my Gen 1 omissions were single stagers, for example, and I also see Qwilfish, Shuckle, and Torkoal on my list.)

It's interesting to see the cases where you don't remember an entire line. For instance, I remembered Mantine but couldn't for the life of me remember the baby's name -- even though I'm holding onto one right now in FB! I could remember Axew (anime) and Haxorus (Smogon hop, skip, and a jump from Axew), but because Fraxure neither featured prominently in the anime nor in the competitive scene his name was lost to me. I could remember Beheeyem (Smogon) but not Elgyem (the previous stage) for similar reasons.

This was a really fun forty minutes. I'm disappointed I couldn't ace the exam, which at first I thought I could do in ten minutes (never mind forty!), but I'm pretty satisfied with my score.

See, the ones I missed were odd. Because the 'mons I used' category, or what I remember of it, is disappointingly small, with like, thirty lines maximum across Red, FR, HG, 2 runs on OR, DPPt, W, W2 and 3 runs on Y. So I was missing the odds and ends like most of gens 2 and 3, and a surprisingly large chunk of early-game gen 4.

575/721, overall.

Kanto - 134/151 - 88% (Not too terrible.)
Johto - 70/100 - 70% (Never was big on Johto, but I can't forgive myself for forgetting Jumpluff's line.)
Hoenn - 130/135 - 96% (HOENN 4 LYFE.)
Sinnoh - 85/107 - 79% (Got most of the evolutions they added but missed several completely new mon)
Unova - 108/156 - 69% (My knowledge of Unova is shoddy at best.)
Kalos - 48/72 - 66% (I use/really like some of the ones I missed. I'm gonna pin that on pressure.)

Ok, third and best run so far, 623/721.

Breakdown
Kanto: 138/151. ...Wow. I wouldn't mind the surprisingly high score, but I should really have remembered the ones I forgot, I've had most of them in ASB at some point or another, and Cubone's a lynchpin.
Johto: 78/100. ...Mostly Bugs and Kanto lines. I apparently completely forgot the Chansey line existed.
Hoenn: 105/135. Never liked hoenn, unmemorable for me.
Sinnoh: 94/107. Well. Such a fail for me, forgetting the first region mons like this. Especially as I still have boxes full of Budew and Shellos, too.
Unova: 145/156. Wow. Can't say I remembered all of the ones I missed, but I recognized most of them other than the Tympole line. Which annoys me because Palpitoad was fucking everywhere in White.
Kalos: 65/72. So damn close... AND I forgot to put volcanion.

Same here, pretty much, as far as getting worse as gens went on. Helps that I know the entirety of the first two Pokeraps by heart... >_>

First run: 563/721- 78% C+

Kanto: 129/151- 85% B
Johto: 85/100- 85% B
Hoenn: 113/135- 84% B
Sinnoh: 74/107- 69% D+ (ouch!)
Unova: 130/156- 83% B

Tried again by generation (they have a function that divides the mon up by generation)

Kanto: 143/151 95% A
Johto: 100/100 100% A (6 seconds to spare)
Hoenn: 131/135 97% A
Sinnoh: 104/107 97% A
Unova: 146/156 94% A
Kalos: 65/72 90% A-

Did much better when they were split up by home region... interesting.
