This morning I had a funny idea for a Daemons Army.
You've got a model converted to look like a Pokemon trainer.
And he throws Pokeballs onto the battlefield, hence the Deep Striking units.

The list!

Bloodletter = Cubone.
Plaguebearer = Slowpoke.
Daemonette = Ekans?
Horror = Ghastly.
The Changeling = Haunter.
Nurgling = Oddish.

Lord of Change = Charizard.
Great Unclean One = Snorlax.
Keeper of Secrets = Scyther?
Bloodthirster = Gyarados.

Flamer = Koffing / Weezing.
Beast of Nurgle = Lickitung :D
Blood Crusher = Rhyhorn with a Cubone rider.
Fiend of Slaanesh = Ninetails?

Flesh Hound = Doduo / Growlithe.
Karanak = Dotrio / Arcanine.
Seeker = Arbok?
Screamer = Fearow? A flying javelin. Maybe with Voltorbs strapped to it.
Fury = Pidgey.

Soul Grinder = Blastoise is the only thing that really fits, armoured, and guns.
Daemon Princes = Various things, this would be tricky.

Good god Winterous, how bored were you :laugh:

A funny idea yes, but I'm not sure how GW would take it XD

Grish
I wasn't bored at all, it just randomly popped into my head o_O
I think that a Charizard as the Lord of Change was what started the whole thing, and I have no idea why that was there.

Meh! Most of them are first Gen, as i stopped playing the games ages ago, those are the ones i remember most.
I do play Sapphire every now and then though.
Some good ones on Sapphire/Ruby, Absol being my favourite.
I'll see if i can change them to 1st/2nd Gen.

Lord of Change = Charizard.
Horrors = Squirtle (water gun and a shell for toughness)
Flamers = Something that flies and is fire-y.
Great Unclean One = Snorlax! :D

etc.
If you do not start to make these I will de-rep you at every available opportunity until I see 40k Pokemon!!!:p

Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
I'm slow enough with my Tyranids D:

But yeah, there are very few gen. 3+ Pokemon that aren't sub-par.
Mexicanpineappleduck is an example of a good Pokemon (actually called Ludicolo).

And Tropius, the flying Brontosaurus with neckbananas.

Nah nah, you have to keep to first (and maybe second) series Pokemon, they just went downhill from there, steeply downhill.
I take offence to that since im still watching and playing them, just started the new japanese series which aried a few weeks ago, currently on eppy three, i thought it would be terrible yet i think its better than most of the other anime airing this season. :p So lets do it to your criteria then:

Flamers - Slugma/Marcargo
Fiends -
Horrors - Ditto
Bloodcruchers - Arcainine
Beast of Nurgle - Weezing
Daemonettes - Smoochum
Plaguebearers - Muk
Nurglings - Grimer
Seekers - ???
Flesh Hounds - Houndoom
Screamers - Jigglypuff :p
Furies - Sperow (Because furies are weak and annoying)
Soul Grinder - Lickatung (not happy with that but will do for now) (think Metagross is perfect for it if im honest)
Daemon Prince - Tzeentch - Alakazam
Daemon Prince - Nurgle - Nidoking
Daemon Prince - Khorne - Ursaring
Daemon Prince - Slaanesh - Jynx
Daemon Prince - Undivided(Normal) - Dragonite

Thats what i could do quickly couldnt think of everytrhing

I don't mean the show, I mean the Pokemon themselves, they just got so unoriginal, and stupid.

Take the starting Pokemon in series 5, I think.
A monkey which is on fire.
A tortoise with a plant on its back (that seems familiar, I wonder where we've seen that before...).
And a penguin.

Oh, and the Ratata-thing is a beaver.


PS: Flying Rhino.
I dont think its that bad, sure some ideas were kinda duplicates, but yet most were fairly original, right up to Sinnoh. Regarding the Ishu region i cant comment since the game isnt out in english yet and the Japanese anime only has 3 episodes so far. But i think the pokemon are still interesting, but with every season you are always going to have duplicates. Like the standard flying pokemon in the Ishu region looks to be a total cone of Pidgey but i dont really care since they are still coming up with fairly orinal things, like the grass starter is a Grass Snake which other than Arbok, Ekans (maybe 2 more i just cant rememeber right now) there havnt been many snakes. So long as they show some originality with the pokemon i dont care to much

And i apologise for this post on pokemon :p

Although if we remove you criteria of the first 2 gens and go for all we could probably get that list of yours filled :D

This reminds me of my 8 year old daughters idea. She wants to play 40k, but I just do not have the money to start another army for her. (She wants a demons army as she likes a lot of the Tzeentch models.) She came up with the idea of using her "littlest pet shop" and "my little ponies" toys to represent demons. I figured they might work just fine for an 8 year old little girl that wants to goof around with her dad and brother. Now, we just need to make up a "my little demons" codex...

Well if they're about the same size, then that'll work!
Hell, I used a ceramic thing as a Trygon the other day, it was about the right height and almost circluar at the bottom; it's like a creepy gay monkey-gnome-thing :laugh:

This is win of the highest order. Seriously, this needs to happen and she needs to play some hardcore army and just mop the floor.
