As a fan of both Pokemon and Sailor Moon, I’ve always wondered what the Senshi would look like as trainers and which Pokemon they’d use. So here is my interpretation of what that would be! :D I’ll include a brief (or not so brief) explanation as to why I chose the Pokemon I did.
For Usagi, whose powers do not correspond to a particular Pokemon type, I chose Pokemon that are connected with the Moon, happiness, and friendship!
The Cleffa/Clefairy/Clefable line is heavily associated with the Moon; it’s even rumored that the species came to Earth from the Moon! Aside from this lunar connection, Clefable are very sweet, happy creatures and cute to boot!
Much like Usagi, Munchlax loves to eat! Also, unlike its evolution Snorlax, Munchlax is pretty hyperactive (as opposed to only eating and sleeping).
This one is pretty unoriginal, haha. I chose Lunatone simply because it’s shaped like a crescent moon (and is implied to be from outer space).
Blissey’s species name is the “Happiness Pokemon.” One of her Pokedex entries says “Blissey senses sadness with its fluffy coat of fur. If it does so, this Pokémon will rush over to the sad person, however far they may be, to share an egg of happiness that brings a smile to any face.” How more Usagi can you get? Much like Blissey, Usagi spreads happiness and love wherever she goes.
Umbreon is significant for two reasons… One, because of it’s relationship with the moon (being the “Moonlight Pokemon”). Two, because Umbreon represents Luna (being a black catlike creature and all).
Togetic shares its species name with Blissey. They are both known as the Happiness Pokemon. It is said that when a Togetic spots a pure-hearted and caring person, it goes to them and showers them with happiness. Not only does this fit in with Usagi’s personality, I also figured that she would be the perfect trainer for Togetic! Togetic grow stronger and happier when with a kindhearted person and Usagi most definitely applies.
