The path to enlightenment begins with Pokemon.

Cute concept, and a nice change of pace. Not everything has to be hard-hitting game journalism or deep explorations of the social impact of gaming. And wow... Pokemon really has kind of drifted out of the social consciousness for awhile, hasn't it?

Maybe we could also arrange these into a sort of horoscope. It has that ring to it...

Andy Hughes:
Ghost types are dead.

I don't know why, but that line really killed me... no pun intended.

Seriously, I was laughing for a good fifteen seconds.

Rock/Bug and I do find grass types the hardest to deal with, antagonism is fun apathy is ... bleh.

So that makes me... shuckle?

"It stores berries in it's shell. The berries eventually ferment to become delicious juices"
That's a moonshine operation I've ever heard of one. In real life Al-Capone is a shuckle

but maybe not me so much, so that means:
Dwebble!
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Dwebble

"After finding a suitable rock, Dwebble digs a hole in the rock's bottom, to use as a protective shell. Dwebble can make rock easier to carve by producing a liquid from its mouth. "

Eh not much better :(

Very entertaining and funny article, some of it really court me of guard and had me laughing pretty hard. It's easily in my top 3 Pokemon personality tests... don't ask.

Anyway I'd say I'm Bug/Grass. 4x weakness to Fire and Flying fits me pretty well, I don't get along with those types of people.

I had a good laugh at that too, that, and the Legendary one.

OT: In the beginning I was expecting some psychanalytic article, but a light-hearted one is just as good. I laughed pretty damn hard at some of those and I was thoroughly entertained, and I wouldn't mind see more of these.

Please, please make a quiz with badges out of this! You just know everybody wants that, it's true.

Seconded. ^^

Very funny article, always love reading stuff like this, plus Pokemon is awesome so win/win.

Also, I'm apparently an water/electric type, either a Chinchou or a Rotum. (With some Steel on the side. Oh what the heck, just make me an Empoleon!) :P

Hmmm, difficult to pin down steel is definitely my second type but first type is a toss up between rock and grass...

Ferroseed sounds accurate, I do live in what my family and friends call a cave, and I have a large collection of objects than can be refereed to as steel spikes that I have been known to throw quite accurately.

I guess I'm grass/poison. Bulbasaur. Or I"m a ghost who knows :P

I figure I'm Water/Rock, so that means my possibilities for pokemon are... Tirtouga, Carracosta, Corsola, or Relicanth. Huh.

Looks like I'm Psychic and Rock, so a Lunatone am I.

Killed me, too. I seriously had to laugh for a bit before going back to finish editing.

I am very much Psychic/Rock, hence Lunatone fits me perfectly. Especially considering my connection with the Moon.

The Gentleman:

Curses, you read my mind!

Also, this should definitely be turned into a quiz.

I guess I would be Rock/Steel or Rock/Psychic.

Oh well, that was an entertaining little read.

Steel/Ground type so im steelix!

I seem to be a mix of steel and electric...

Really? I felt like the guy didn't try hard enough to give us something there.

Somewhere around ground, bug, or rock. Maybe a little psychic.

Bow to this magnificient Electric Dragon .That makes me a Zekrom ,guess i can add Legendary than :P !

My other one was Electric Ground ,extremely powerfull but Stunfisk ... come on !

I'm a water/ice type, meaning I'm a Dewgong, Cloyster or Lapras. (Or the Spheal evolutionary group but screw them)

As a psychology major, I am deeply upset by this article.

So... I guess I'm a rock/grass type?
How did that happen?

Oh, and legendary. I'm that.

Are there any steel/grass Pokemon? >.>

Edit: Apparantly yes. Ferroseed and Ferrothorn.

so that makes me what... rock/(ground/water-ish)

great article; not exactly what i expected, which made it even more fun ^^

I think you're the best person to ask. Am I fire, psychic or dragon? Or some awesome combination of those? :-p

I agree that this would be great in a quiz with badges. This article was fun to read. The description for ghost-types is just hilarious.

It seems I'm a ground/rock type, which would be a Rhyperior.

Almost all these personalities suck, I'd hate to be stuck in a room with a grass/ice/fighting/poison/bug or dark type. That being said they really need to make this a quiz, it would be a great source of entertainment :P I would say I'm a water type and a little of ghost

Water/rock.
Awesome!

Not my favourite Pokemon, but both are in the top 50 easily.
Nice feature, makes a good change from all the usual drama/current affairs relevance.

Water/Rock/Steel, like this guy:

Captain Pirate:
Water/rock.
Awesome!

Lets make a club!

And I vote we see this again as a quiz

I Think I'm an Evee. Depending on what's happening around me, I react differently. When I'm sick, though, I turn into a Snorlax.

Electric here, very accurate :P

BrotherRool:

So that makes me... shuckle?

That's a moonshine operation I've ever heard of one. In real life Al-Capone is a shuckle

FUCK YEAR!
SHUCKLE MASTER RACE!

Water/ground

Ironically (or perhaps appropriately?) The type combination of one of my favorite Pokemon, Swampert.

Also everyone who reads this article is steel, essentially.

I lived with a poison type for a while. EXACTLY how the article explains it.
