What would the original 151 Pokemon taste like?

Slowbro (#80)

...even other Pokemon can't resist biting it. Like, seriously - Slowbros and Slowpokes are most likely some of the most delicious Pokemon.

Magnemite (#81)

Eating a Magnemite would be like chewing on tin foil when you have fillings. Also it's not recommended for anyone with a pacemaker.

Magneton (#82)

It's... just three Magemites bolted together, right? How is that even considered to be a different Pokemon?

Farfetch'd (#83)

Tamarind Glazed Farfetch'd Tacos

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup tamarind concentrate
  • 1/4 cup fresh Weedle juice
  • 8 cloves roasted Oddish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 Farfetch'd breast halves, about 8 ounces each, trimmed of excess fat
  • 2 leeks (likely included with Farfetch'd)
  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed, for serving

Directions

Combine the honey, tamarind concentrate, Weedle juice, and Oddish in a saucepan, bring to simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor, season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl and let cool.

Preheat a charcoal grill for medium-low and medium direct heat, and indirect grilling. Have ready a squeeze bottle filled with water to handle flare-ups.

Score the Farfetch'd breasts with a sharp knife to make a diagonal cross-hatch pattern and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the Farfetch'd on the grill, skin-side down, and cook, uncovered, until the skin is nicely browned, about 15 minutes. If the flare-ups are too great, or the Farfetch'd browns too quickly, move the Farfetch'd occasionally over the indirect heat, and then back to direct heat.

Once almost all of the fat has rendered and the skin is a deep golden brown, flip the Farfetch'd over, move over medium heat, brush generously with the tamarind glaze and continue grilling until an instant-read thermometer reaches 140 degrees F for medium-rare, about 5 minutes. Remove the Farfetch'd to a cutting board, brush with more of the glaze and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing on the diagonal into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

Spread some glaze on the corn tortillas. Top with some Farfetch'd slices and leeks (the Farfetch'd should have been holding one when you caught him) and serve.

Doduo (#84)

Even though Doduo meat tastes like beef, the Doduo does not have fat marbling in the meat like beef. Doduo have fat, but it collects outside the muscles and is easily removed during processing. Therefore, the cuts of meat are very lean with very low fat content. Ideal for weight watchers who love red meat!

Dodrio (#85)

Since Dodrio is essentially a three-headed Doduo, it has a similar taste, the the movement of the third head makes the beef taste somewhat tougher, what with its constant flopping around and moving.

Seel (#86)

Like a seal, obviously. They got... sorta unoriginal with the naming here, didn't they?

Dewgong (#87)

Like a typical manatee, which has a unique light pink-brown meat.

Grimer (#88)

The water left at the bottom of the trash bag.

Muk (#89)

A vomit burp.
