Reddit users spoke about the inclusion of various Pokemon that would fit with the theme. One user stated that a singing Jigglypuff would be the perfect addition. She could use her melodious voice to put everyone to sleep and leave crayon marks all over them. Other curious contenders that the community would love to see included are Cindaquil, Growlithe, Arcanine, Vulpix, Ninetales, Charmander, and many more.

There is no shortage of amazing Pokemon that would greatly enhance the playing experience. These wondrous pocket monsters could become amazing pets that players can roam the island with. If the collaboration seems too much of a stretch, then perhaps a Pokemon-centered DLC island or dedicated area could be added into the game.

Nintendo has complete liberty in steering this idea in whichever way it deems fit. Pokemon is a classic anime that has achieved continued global success for nearly 4 decades. The hype around each character and the massive roster of gaming titles are testaments to its success. And if a Pokemon collaboration happened, fans would be over the moon.
