There are more than 1,000 Pok\u00e9mon out there, and as time goes on, that number will only increase with future generations and games added to the mix. Despite that growing number, there are still several animal species that have yet to be turned into Pok\u00e9mon. We've gathered 10 of them here in alphabetical order. Here are some animals we think absolutely deserve to be represented as Pok\u00e9mon. Related: The 15 biggest Pok\u00e9mon of all time Animals that should be turned into Pok\u00e9mon Blue Glaucus Image via Wikipedia Let's start with an animal that already looks like a Pok\u00e9mon. This little sea slug almost resembles a mythical dragon, but it can fit in the palm of your hand. It has a stinger, too, so it's easy to imagine it as a Water\/Poison type, perhaps as an oceanic cousin to Slugma. Golden Retriever Image via Wikipedia Picking a single dog breed to include on this list is tricky.\u00a0Pok\u00e9mon has many dogs, but there's a lack of huskies, pugs, and other popular breeds. Golden retrievers win out thanks to starring roles in the likes of\u00a0Air Bud\u00a0and\u00a0Up. Pok\u00e9mon would be hard-pressed to find a more loyal good boy. It doesn't matter how many dog Pok\u00e9mon are added; we always will want more. Hummingbird Image via Wikipedia Like with dogs, there are tons of bird Pok\u00e9mon already, but none relatively as small as a hummingbird. Doesn't this photo look like it could easily include a flower Pok\u00e9mon like Flab\u00e9b\u00e9 or Floette? There's a great opportunity to create a pollination-based evolution with a hummingbird 'mon. Narwhal Image via Earth.Org Narwhals seem like a great choice for a new Ice and Water Pok\u00e9mon to be added to the roster. The horn could be made of an icicle, but you could also add in a Fairy moves with its similarity to unicorns. We also think it could potentially make an interesting evolution for Dewgong. Platypus Image via Wikipedia Before you ask, no \u2014 Psyduck is just a duck. Despite the resemblance, Pok\u00e9mon is yet to include nature's strangest mammal. Given its venomous anatomy, a Water\/Poison type is the obvious way to go, but however it ends up looking, we are just ready to add a platypus to our party. Swordfish Image via Wikipedia Pok\u00e9mon is severely lacking in Water\/Fighting types. Poliwrath, Keldeo, and Rapid Strike Style Urshifu are the only ones, and none of them are fish. That's a huge missed opportunity. We've seen new Scarlet and Violet Pok\u00e9mon Cetitan fanart that imagines a pre-evolution resembling a swordfish, so perhaps we'll see this idea executed in the new generation. Tanuki Image via Deluth News Tribune We have seen Mario dress up as a tanuki plenty of times, so maybe that's why we haven't seen a Pok\u00e9mon based on this Japanese raccoon dog yet. There are myths of them changing their form and being mischievous, so a Ghost and Dark-type Pok\u00e9mon seems like an easy sell here. We wouldn't be against going with something different, though. Tardigrade Image via Wikipedia If you don't already know about tardigrades, here's the elevator pitch: they can survive in subzero temperatures, inside volcanic vents, and even in outer space. They're resistant to being irradiated, getting dehydrated, and starving, making them some of the most durable microscopic creatures. That's a premise for a new legendary Pok\u00e9mon if we've ever heard one. Tasmanian Devil Image via Wikipedia Tasmanian devils are marsupials, the same family tree that Kangaskhan, the kangaroo-ish Pok\u00e9mon ostensibly belongs to. They're the size of small dogs, so if we're ever going to get a real rival to Raticate, this could be the way to go. Plus, now that\u00a0Taz has been nerfed in MultiVersus, this is Pok\u00e9mon's chance to get a leg up with the species. Velociraptor Image via Wikipedia Despite\u00a0all the dinosaurs and fossil Pok\u00e9mon\u00a0out there, we've yet to see one based on this fierce predator. Pok\u00e9mon could knock out two birds with one stone here, giving us a new creature that comes back to life from a "Feather Fossil." Using Scratch would be super effective with those talons.
