What would the original 151 Pokemon taste like?

Caterpie (#10)

Chewy, like apple-flavored gum.

Metapod (#11)

Hard on the outside and chewy on the inside, like a blow pop.

Butterfree (#12)

Pixie stix, but the purple ones that taste awful.

Weedle (#13)

Nerds rope.

Kakuna (#14)

Hard on the outside and chewy on the inside, like that Nerds rope that's rolled up in a ball in your drawer for when you need nourishment.

Beedrill (#15)

Like a trip to the dentist.

Pidgey (#16)

A pigeon recently shot by a pellet gun. Fresh.

Pidgeotto (#17)

A pigeon recently hit by a car. Slightly less fresh.

Pidgeot (#18)

Like an old, rotting pigeon. Seriously, you guys, you don't want to eat a Pidgeot. They're nasty.

Rattata (#19)

Gourmet ratatouille.
