The last Pokemon game I played was Sapphire on the GBA. I recently decided to get back into it, starting with the game after Sapphire GBA, Pokemon Diamond. Coincidentally, I rewatched a lot of Always Sunny while playing and decided to pick some Pokemon from the 151 pokedex of Diamond that corresponded with the characters.

Mac-Geodude, Mac thinks he's tough, Geodude thinks the same. Also Geodude never works legs, just like Mac.
Dennis-Roserade, Dennis and Roserade seem very conceited about their looks, with no real basis.
Sweet Dee-Pelipper, obviously a large bird with a big mouth.
Frank-Abomasnow, short, those eyebrows are similar to Frank's, and Frank generally has an icy demeanor toward everything.
Charlie-Psyduck, most things confuse Charlie, most things confuse Psyduck.

 Always Sunny has quite a few supporting characters that appear throughout the show that add a little something extra, so I had to choose Pokemon for them as well.

Artemis-Honchkrow, both puffed up, think they look sexy and I'm fairly certain Artemis would wear a hat just like that if she hasn't already.
Rickety Cricket-Gastly, Cricket should most definitely be dead with all the things the gang and life have thrown his way, but he isn't. Bonus, since Cricket used to be a priest, but in episodes after becoming homeless, makes fun of religion, so perhaps he's being punished to roam the mortal world.
Ryan McPoyle-Croagunk, both appear to have their mouths constantly open and their statures are fairly similar. Croagunk can be found in the Great Marsh and the McPoyles probably originated in a swamp.
Liam McPoyle-Toxicroak, all of the same reasons for Ryan, except Liam is the McPoyle who is more in charge. Toxicroak's pointed head is also similar to Liam's hair.
Margaret McPoyle-Bidoof, both are more like set pieces than actual living things.
Waitress-Bronzor, this one was hard, the Waitress has no real personality traits other than her problems with alcohol. The Gang barely notices her and is annoyed by her, Charlie loves her/stalks her, and then she is subsequently annoyed by him. I chose Bronzor because if you tilt him horizontally, he becomes the perfect tray and trays are necessary for waitresses.

Not entirely shameless self promotion.


Ralph Macchio, one of the greatest thespians to ever live, is discussed.

Imagine you are one of the many incarnations of Spider-Man. Imagine it is the day after you have finished your costume and webshooters. You go up to the roof of a skyscraper in New York, put your costume on, thinking you are going to look over the New York landscape and contemplate all the good you plan on doing, but as soon as you look out...you realize you are afraid of heights. Damn.

I love Spider-Man and all his various forms, but it always gets me how he immediately gets into the web-slinging and skyscraper acrobatics with no hesitation. Cmon.
