Rant: Real Pokemon

Going to see if I can start ranting about random stuff, and I feel as though this is a great place to start. So…here we go….
Honestly speaking, what would you do if you saw a Pokemon in real life. Some of them would look cute and adorable, but those are the ones that can’t do anything. The the ones that people would be interested in are those that could potentially kill you with absolutely no effort. I mean come on even a Bonsly can break a “what I would imagine to be” human-sized boulder without even trying. We’re talking about a “baby’ Pokemon that can trick you with its fake tears, headbutt you, smack you down, and bury you under a barrage of rocks….at level 1.
True, we might learn to live along side Pokemon and fight with them and have actual “Pokemon” adventures, but at the end of the day, there’s still something we don’t have…and that’s a Poke-ball. Apparently, it took quite plausibly hundreds of years to make this thing, and something in the back of my mind tells me that humanity can’t do it overnight. It would be insane because we’d just have to worry about Charizards being flame breathing flying lizard things and angry Geodudes with “Explosion” for a LONG time before we could actually do much about it. And really, do you think an entire planet’s worth of creatures is going to take kindly to just mysteriously appearing in a random place? Imagine getting plopped in the Antarctic. You wouldn’t take too kindly to a penguin treating your face as an egg, would you? 
So yeah…real Pokemon would be awful…unless it’s a Magikarp that can’t evolve….then we’re fine…but so help me if it learns Tackle and gets to level 100. Or, it could be a Dialga…because Dialga is awesome…and as tame as a kitten. But that’s the first of plausibly a decent number of rants. Overall real Pokemon…are a terrible idea (2/719+)% of the time.

This is a blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus), that float around about a thousand metres deep off the coast of Australia. It just hovers and eats whatever gets too close. It’s currently facing extinction due to deep-sea fishing, or bottom-trawling.
