Below are some "rebus" that lead to names of different Pokémons. However, here is the catch: The rebuses do not all explicitly lead to the name of Pokémons. The rebuses may be describing the Pokémon's physical looks, a signature ability/move, name, or type. It's YOUR job to figure it out! Think out side the box. Please explain thoroughly!!!! enter image description here

Hint, hint!

Remember, some rebuses may be describing a SIGNATURE MOVE/ABILITY.

Partial Answer for C:

A reverse Google image of the 1st picture tells me it is the Judgment Dragon from Yu-Gi-Oh.
Judgment is the signature move of Arceus .
Moreover, Arceus is the master of the three Lake guardians.

Team Effort:

Answer for A (from Robotnik)

(A.) Aegislash - has a stance change ability (which is evident from the diagram)

Answer for B (from Mic Croizer)

(B.) Lucario - since Lucario is a fighting/steel type and is blue, plus has a commonly associated move called Aura Sphere

Answer for C (from Florian Bourse)

(C.) Arceus - since the dragon is called the Judgement dragon from Yu-gi-oh and Arceus's signature move is Judgement, plus Arceus is the trio master of the lake guardians.

Answer for D (from Quantum Twinkle)

(D.) Lunatone - Because it's in the shape of the moon, and looks like a rock.

Answer for E (from Tarius (me)):

(E.) Leafeon - which splits into a leaf and eon (representing a large number)

Partial answer:

A

Maybe Charjabug, because this is the only Pokemon with the battery ability(hitting something can be battery).

B

Lucario (From Mic Crozier)

C

Maybe a Pokemon that knows Draco Meteor because it is a dragon with a lake(crater/meteor lake) So maybe

D

Lunatone. Because it is in the shape of a moon and it is rock looking and rock type?

E

Leafeon (From Tarius)

A

Aegislash - Stance Change ability (Arrows show swapping between a defensive and offensive stance)

C (Incorrect but left for posterity)

Lugia - Dinosaur/Dragon/Bird-like, known as the 'Guardian of the Seas'. In fact, the line in between the pictures makes it look like it's "Lugia OVER the Seas'

The other ones have been solved by other people, see Tarius' answer for the final results.

D:

(D.) Lunatone (Quantumtwinkie found this answer)

Partial answer:

A.

sawk, who is a humanoid martial artist

B.

A steel + fighting + blue pokemon. Lucario, where the sphere is https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Lucarionite

C.

Probably a water/ice dragon type pokemon. I want to say gyrados, but your other choices lead me to newer pokemon I am not used to.

D.

Lunatone (From Quantumtwinkie's answer)

E.

Leafeon (Tarius’ Answer)

Edit: Another guess

A

Aegislash
The image shows a person with different stances, with specifically arrows going to 1->2->3. This makes me think the ability is Stance change, the signature ability of Aegislash.

As a bonus, the stance 1 & 3 is similar and look like a ready-to-attack stance, while 2 looks more defensive. Fits with how aegislashes switch between an offensive and defensive form with stance change.

C

Giratina
First image is a dragon, and the second is a calm lake with a perfect reflection in it. A vertically inverted version of reality, so to speak.

Giratina is a legendary dragon type who reigns over the distortion/reverse world, an inverted dimension which is closely connected to reflections and mirrors and pools of water.

Old answer:
For C, though it's a bit of a stretch -

Hydreigon, the only dragon type found in the Clear Lake dungeon in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon?

$\begingroup$

Looks like only C needs answering:

My guess is Articuno. The "dragon" looks like articuno (despite articuno not being a dragon type at all). But my real reason is because the second picture displays a reflection. The only pokemon that resembles a dragon and learns Reflect is Articuno. No dragon pokemon learn reflect other than through TM usage.

A guess for A:

Long Reach ability - Decidueye, since the staff gives a longer reach.

More guesses:

Schooling ability - Wishiwashi, since he is training

Less plausible guess:

Stamina ability - Mudscale, he is training for a long time

$\endgroup$

Partial Answer

C:

Dragonite A Dragon/Flying type. Closely tied with water and the sea (See Pokedex entries). Previous evolutions are blue-ish and can be caught in the water.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Im sorry, incorrect $\endgroup$ – North Mar 7 '18 at 4:41

$\begingroup$

A:

Farfetch'd. There's and item called Stick that only he can make use of. This is ignoring that hint you gave about abilities. With regards to your hint, the only ability I could think of was Sticky Hold (Get it? 'cause he's holding a stick) which isn't unique to a single pokemon.

C:

Rayquaza. Shows a dragon over some place. I assume this refers to Dragon Ascent which is Rayquaza's signature move.

C (second answer):

Giratina. The image below might be referring to the reflection on the water which leads me to think Reverse World i.e. Giratina.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I was thinking this for C, but also since that area looks something like Sootopolis, and given the events of Pokemon Emerald, I'd say this is evidence in it's favor. $\endgroup$ – AlexanderJ93 Mar 7 '18 at 3:38
  • $\begingroup$ Im sorry but incorrect $\endgroup$ – North Mar 7 '18 at 4:41
  • $\begingroup$ @North Edited in a second attempt at C. $\endgroup$ – user1004 Mar 7 '18 at 5:25

$\begingroup$

A:

My guess is Hitmontop. Because of the turn or spin in the fighting stance I would think of a fighting type pokemon, maybe a rapid spin user and most of all the constant spinning motion of Hitmontop.

C:

My first guess was Palkia just because it is a Water/Dragon Type. But then I thought it could be Suicune. Maybe it was the look of the creature in the picture, which made me think of one of the Legendary Beasts of Gen II. The water of the lake lead to a water type and in the original anime Ash met Suicune in the mist on a rock (hence mountains) of a lake, which also would fit for the shown pictures.

For C:

Kyurem? The first image represents a dragon and the second image denotes ice type...
