Pokemon remains popular 20 years after it was first introduced. There is a new game, Pokemon Go that will be released in 2016 that will allow players to capture, battle, train and trade virtual Pokemon who appear throughout the real world. Although supported through in-app purchases, the game will be free to play. Here are some of the Pokemons that have been inspired by real life animals.
