Can You Guess All 151 Pokémon?

10th May 2020 PERMALINK • 1 min read

On little YouTube adventure I had this afternoon, I came across a video of someone trying to guess all of the 151 original Pokémon. To be honest, the idea of watching someone do this themselves sounded absolutely boring. But I wanted to try and do it myself. It’s my favourite generation of Pokémon, so I thought I’d know it quite well, although I haven’t played it in quite some time (Even though I really should get back to playing Pokemon Sword).

Well, after the first twenty minutes, I’d guessed around 100 of them. I thought that was impressive, until it took about ten more minutes to guess the next twenty Pokémon. But by that point my mind went completely blank. So my progress so far is 120 Pokémon in 30 minutes, although I haven’t closed the tab, so I may try and complete it later.

If you want to try it yourself, you can find the quiz on Sporcle, which I think has a really good format for online quizzes. It’s just a single text field where you constantly type guesses, and if you get one correct, the text is cleared, and the relevant field is populated. It’s pretty fun.


While I was on Sporcle, I found a few more quizzes to try. So here they are, along with my score:

Four Emoji Quizzes

Now practically everyone is in lockdown, everyone seems to be having fun sending around various quizzes. My family have been sharing various emoji quizzes between ourselves, so I decided to make a few myself.

I’ve got quite a bit of spare time, so I actually made the effort to design a proper layout, and look reasonably good.

Each quiz has just 10 emoji phrases, and you’ve got to guess what they represent. The four different topics I chose were:

  • Movies
  • TV Shows
  • UK Landmarks
  • English Football Teams (Based on nicknames)

I’ve got an image for each quiz, and also a version including the answers. I’ll include each of the below, but for the answers you’ll have to click on the relevant answers link.
