No! Everyone knows it should be a matrix of mathematicians!

Well, another thing: what should we call a collective of Pokemon?

A "crowd" of Pokemon?

you know, i never thought of a matrix of mathematicians - thats a really good one :)

and boy am i impressed by peoples creativity. "a feeling of raltz" - i really liked that one. heres a couple more.

a chunk of aggrons
a lurch of spinda
a sum of plusles

something else ive noticed is that when you type them in you have to decide whether to include an "s" at the end - eg "a splash of magikarp" or "a splash of magikarps". sometimes it seems obvious (like i think it should be magikarp, not magikarps), but not always.

keep 'em coming!!

yeah, im not usually creative. but people on these forums are always coming up with crazy questions about pokemon - the best one i can remember is "what pokemon would you like to eat?" :lol: :lol: :lol:

anyway, i'm way off topic - sorry!!! it certainly is random, but i think there are some pretty creative people out there. lets just wait for an asylum of psypoke members to get thinking :)


do you mean like... 'Pythagoreans'?
