In the show
1. In "Ditto's Mysterious Mansion," Jesse yells at Ditto with Godzilla's roar. 2. In one episode of the Pokémon anime, a giant Caterpie attacks a city similar to Tokyo. The Caterpie evolves into Metapod, and eventually evolves into Butterfree. This entire sequence was very similar to Mothra's very first movie appearance.
1. Nidoking and Rhydon both strongly resemble Baragon. 2. Butterfree and Venomoth set a precedent for butterfly and moth-like Pokémon to have psychic abilities and powder attacks with debilitating status effects, recalling Mothra. 3. One piece of concept art for Capsule Monsters, which evolved into Pokémon Red and Blue, shows a fire-breathing reptile named Godzillante, combining Godzilla and Biollante's names. 4. The initial Capsule Monsters pitch to Nintendo included Pokémon named Omega who...
In the movies
1. In the movie "Pokémon Heroes", an Aerodactyl is summoned to destroy the city and its citizens. This again is similar to giant monster films.
1. The Pokémon Tyranitar is similar to Godzilla in many ways, including a passing resemblance through its design. Tyranitar is a very powerful and in the movies/show it can be seen as an unstoppable force. Also, Tyranitar's Japanese name is Bangiras (バンギラス, Bangirasu), which is an obvious reference to Anguirus's Japanese name Angirasu (アンギラス).
1. The Steel- and Rock-type Aggron may be based on the Pulgasari, a monster that eats iron in Korean legend, in addition to potentially being based on Triceratops, Ceratopsids, and other dinosaurs.
In the movies
1. The legendary Pokémon Giratina's roar is actually Mothra's chirps, screeches and cries. 2. The legendary Pokémon Palkia's roar is a mix of the roars of the Boga from the Star Wars franchise, King Ghidorah's roar and Godzilla's roar. 3. In the eleventh movie, the villain's ship (when using its beam) produces the same sound as Megaguirus's roar.
1. Palkia's roar from the movies is also used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl whenever he appears in the Spear Pillar stage, and in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii Uwhenever he appears from a Pokéball. 2. The Pokémon Yanmega is a dragonfly that evolves from Yanma by learning AncientPower and is directly based off the Meganeura species of ancient dragonflies, just like Megaguirus and the Meganula.
1. The Pokémon Hydreigon is similar to King Ghidorah in appearance as they are both winged, flying three-headed dragons with no real "arms." However, Hydreigon has been confirmed in a Nintendo Dream interview with Ken Sugimori, head Pokémon designer, to be based off Yamata no Orochiinstead of King Ghidorah. The explanation given was that Hydreigon has 3 heads instead of 8 because 3 heads was simpler than 8 heads.
In the games
1. In Pokémon Black 2 & White 2, there is a feature called the "Pokéstar Studios", in which you can make short movies. The feature has a giant Steel-type mechanical Tyranitar that can be used in the movies, that goes by the name of "Mecha Tyranitar" and shortened to "MT" in-battle. This character is similar to the Heisei Mechagodzilla and the late Heisei Godzilla, because of its appearance and role in the film. Mecha Tyranitar is at level 73, has the ability "Analytic" and has the moves "Iron...
In the show
1. In the first episode of the Generation V anime adaption, the Pokémon Zekrom has the same roar as Megaguirus, while it has Baragon's GMK roar in the 14th Pokemon movie. The Pokémon Reshiram has Megaguirus' roar mixed with one of Keizer Ghidorah's roars in the movie as well. 2. In Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice, Kyurem has the roars of Zilla and Monster X. 3. A giant robot that goes by the name "Mecha Tyranitar" appears in the anime episode "An Epic Defense Force!". In th...
1. Tyranitar gained a mega evolution in this Generation, and rather fittingly resembles Super Godzilla or SpaceGodzilla (who was inspired by Super Godzilla anyways), complete with an exaggerated version of Super Godzilla's 'crown' and large dorsal finserupting out of its back.
In the show
1. In the movie Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, Yveltal has Megaguirus' roars. 2. In Mega Evolution Special III, both Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre have Godzilla's roar, mixed with Mothra and King Ghidorah's roars. 1. Mega Tyranitar
