If there’s one thing Pokemon is known for, it’s incredibly elaborate, sometimes frightening moves that, at worst, cause an opponent to pass out. In the real world, most of these moves are not exactly plausible. Photon Geyser or Perish Song aren’t exactly what humans can do.
But some Pokemon moves can be performed with the help of some everyday objects in the real world. As long as you’re careful. Please be careful. Just in case, this list will not contain anything too dangerous. So what can you do and what do you need to perform some of your favorite Pokemon moves?
10/10 Bubble Beam
The more powerful version of its predecessor, Bubble, Bubble Beam sees the Pokemon launch spherical bubbles at its opponent. When hit, they explode and deal special attack damage to your opponent.
While you can make bubbles with nothing but soapy water and your lungs, something like a bubble beam needs a little more power. Enter the balloon gun. Using an electric motor, it can shoot hundreds of bubbles at once. Just make sure you have plenty of soapy water available.
In Pokemon, camouflage is a useful move that allows the Pokemon performing it to change its spelling based on the terrain around it. Water type if you are surfing or diving, fire type if you are surrounded by a volcano. If there is a species, there is also a terrain to match.
But there are many ways to adapt in the real world. One of the best ways is to use a Ghillie costume. While it won’t change your typing, there are many different biomes you can hide using one of these. Snow, forest, savanna, the options are only limited by your imagination.
Used to keep a party going; When a Pokemon encores, its opponent must use the same move several more times without a break. However, there are some moves where encore just doesn’t work, like mirror move or tackle.
In the real world, you might want a performance to continue by encore with just your voice and hands. What about objects? Clappers, noise makers, megaphones, you name it. Everything to make your voice heard above the crowd and encourage the show to go on.
Goodbye and good night; Sleep, little baby. Sing is a move that puts opposing Pokemon to sleep and lets you land free hits before they wake up. Not to mention, it’s one of the cutest moves in all of Pokemon.
A lullaby book can certainly help you put someone to sleep using your voice, but that’s only half the fun. The real fun comes from waking someone up. Microphones and some speakers will really amplify your voice and make the karaoke night more fun. Maybe even the megaphone you used for the encore would work here.
6/10 Leaf Storm
Kicking a storm of razor-sharp leaves and throwing them at your opponent is not only a damaging move, but also lowers the opponent’s special attack. It is powerful and can activate opponent Pokemon in a short time.
In the real world, although not that dangerous, a storm of leaves can certainly be kicked and thrown at someone. There are many different ways, but the leaf blower is by far the best. The only downside? First you have to wait for the leaves to fall to the ground.
5/10 water gun
Most water-type Pokemon learn the Water Gun as one of their first special attack moves. A quick burst of water that’s usually only good against Pokemon that are weak against water like rock or fire types.
In the real world, you probably won’t knock anyone out by splashing some water on them, but they will definitely be shocked. Like its name, in the real world, a water gun will be your best bet for squirting water on someone who least suspects it. The best part? You can guarantee they won’t be immune.
Fly into the sky, then come down and jump over your opponent. Sometimes it can even paralyze them. In the real world it is enough to jump up; No need to land on someone.
There are several ways to accomplish such an air movement in the real world. For starters, a trampoline will blow you away. However, if you don’t have the space, consider fulfilling your Spoink fantasies and getting a poop.
3/10 Average Look
Looking tough in Pokemon will give you quite an advantage in a battle. The evil gaze hinders your opponent’s determination, preventing them from escaping. You can use this to prevent a wild Pokemon from escaping or to prevent an opponent from replacing their current Pokemon.
In the real world, you can definitely create a brutal and attractive look that will attract the attention of those around you. How? Doing makeup. Get yourself a strong color palette and head to the city. If you want something a little worse, you can take a look at monster makeup.
When a Pokemon is low on health, they may choose to sleep for a few turns, using rest to heal themselves again. This is especially useful for Pokemon like Snorlax that have a huge health pool.
In the real world, all you need to rest is a comfortable place to lie down. Like a bed, a sofa or a floor. You can take the rest in your sleep, as long as it’s comfortable enough to take the full eight hours. When you wake up you will feel fresh and ready for the day.
All of the best ground-type Pokemon know how to dig. Dig allows your Pokemon to go underground for a spin, escaping anything that may be thrown in their path in the process. It then leaps off the ground on the next turn, dealing damage as long as the enemy Pokemon is not flying or has the ability to levitate.
All you need to dig in the real world is a shovel. Sure, your hands will allow you to dig well, but it’s messy and pretty slow. However, if you want to dig fast, heavy machinery like a backhoe will get the job done in no time.
