Hmmm with Pokemon they need licensing, and that’s going to be expensive, especially with Niantic already holding some shares in Pokemon. Personally I would prefer to stick with just animals too, rather than a licensed franchise.
But here is what they could do:
Space Zoo: Kanto
Eevee (+ Eeveelutions)
Exeggutor (disguised themselves as standing trees)
B: not enough variants of the same Pokemon. If there’s going to be a Pikachu habitat, what are the other Pikachus going to be, apart from Pichu and Raichu?
C: millions of licensing issues. I think if they’re going to make new Pikachus, Nintendo, Game Freak and Niantic are going to buy the rights and include them as Pokemon, which would make it really confusing.
Like I said, I think there’s way too many complications to do with lincensing and the practicability of this.
But most of all, these aren’t animals. Even mythological animals are ok, but these are nothing but game fiction that aren’t embedded in culture or history, and don’t live in real life (Pokemon Go is not real life).
Hmm I don't think you can base a zone on monsters that have been based on real life animals and more importantly, objects too.
It shouldn't be necessary to add to the new zones page because that page is about legitimate zones that are to be put in the game. What I'm scared of is people voting for Pokemon because then I have to tell everyone that it simply isn't possible.
