I have been thinking about this question for a while now. Since many Pokemon are based around animals, which animals are Pokemon based on? I ask for the family of the animals, such as dogs, cats, mice and so on. The complete definition is in this link.

I would like a complete list if possible.

    should be a lot, there's only 700 pokemon so far, and god knows how many animal on earth. That said, check this out, 15 Animals that haven't been made into Pokémon – Darjeeling Aug 28 '16 at 7:23
  • note for future readers, my comment above was made before the edit, and the original question asked about what animal that doesn't have a Pokemon version of it, hence, my comment. But since the OP decide to change the question, my comment becomes obsolete, however, I decide to keep it because it has an interesting article about some animals that haven't been made into Pokémon. – Darjeeling Aug 29 '16 at 5:23
  • @Dragon since there's 721 pokemon until XY, and also most of them are based on animal, I think I can write down all the list, but it's need more time to write them all XD – JTR Aug 29 '16 at 6:33
  • Is it okay if I'm not write all of the full evolution of one Pokemon? Just like my edited on Sam's answer? – JTR Aug 29 '16 at 6:36
  • @JTR As long as it is relevant, I guess it's not a problem – Ikaros Aug 29 '16 at 6:54

    Can you also mention which Pokemon is based on this animal? As it is, it's just a big list of animals so it's hard to relate it back to Pokemon. – Torisuda Aug 28 '16 at 23:22
  • thanks a lot for the answer, but is this the full list of animals that covers all the pokemon or just most of them? is it possible to get the full list? tell me if it's too much work to make a full list, then i'll give this as the right answer – Dragon Aug 29 '16 at 6:03
  • this is not the full list, these were just a bunch I could think of – Sam Hendriks Aug 29 '16 at 7:26
  • i'll keep adding more from time to time though – Sam Hendriks Aug 29 '16 at 7:42

That's my full list, I hope I'm not missed one of them.

Almost all Pokemon based on animal, that we're familiar with, or even animal that we doesn't know before.

Many of them are combined from two species at once, like Eevee's evolution that have some characteristic of Canidae and Felidae, so I put it on one of the family.

  • mudkip is a mudskipper while whooper is based on a axolotl – Sam Hendriks Aug 30 '16 at 20:05
  • @SamHendriks yeah I know, just like I said, Mudkip and Whooper are based on more than one animal. Mudkip based on mudskipper but also have some trait with salamander and axolotl because it's gills, and Whooper also true based on axolotl but also salamander moreover, Quagsire, Whooper's evolution is based on giant salamander – JTR Aug 31 '16 at 0:14
