I'm really feeling it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Open Forum, which is hosted by Kotaku's reader-run blog, TAY.

Then, when you're done, feel free to peruse the articles on TAY and TAYClassic. Is this your first time on TAY or the Open Forum? Then check out this handy TAYTorial!

Hello TAY! The last time we did this, we discussed our spirit animals. Remember that some of you?


Today, I'm going to ask you all to tell me your spirit Pokémon. Not which actual ghost Pokémon you most identify with (though that's acceptable an answer if you do). But you know, Pokémon in general.

Kinda like how Novi is a Beartic, Shar is a Teddiursa and Botcher is a Pancham? That sort of spirit animal! Not that I am answering for bears of anything because maybe those bears have dreams of being llamas.

Or how Pikathulu's spirit Pokémon is not actually a pika... thulu but a poliwhirl?

And how I am not a poliwag

I feel like I would be a Pumpkaboo.


I have no idea what they are like but they remind me of my favourite time of year which is Autumn, with all the good stuff - Halloween, Pumpkin pies, apple picking, lots of wonderful crisp air, and the leaves turning beautiful colours of red, orange and yellow. Did I mention I hate summer? I'm pretty sure I have at some point.

Anyway, have at it and tell us why! And if we've already covered this which seems likely and vaguely familiar, humour me some! Or tell me which Pokémon you definitely would not be. Or go to this scientific reddit quiz from last year that I just discovered and tell us your results. Completely scientific. Fo' sho.


As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got time for spirits! It is the Open Forum, after all. Don't forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.
