Athletes as Pokemon

Bryce Harper: Charmeleon

If Bryce could safely play baseball with a burning flame emerging from his hair, don't you think he would've already?

Yoenis Cespedes: Blastoise

The biggest difference here is Blastoise has two cannons while Cespedes only has one -- but, hey, we've never actually seen him throw with his left arm. So who knows?

Usain Bolt: Jolteon

Bolteon? Bolteon.

Brock Lesnar: Rhydon

Pokemon probably aren't able to get tattoos, but that's the only thing that could make this one more accurate.

Conor McGregor: Machamp

His opponents have probably envisioned him having four arms before, one would think.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Damian Lillard: Magmar

The "Spitfire" species seems fitting for the best rapper in the NBA.

Draymond Green: Geodude

FLEX.

J.J Watt: Golem

If J.J. went a few months without clipping his nails, there would be literally no distinction between the two.

Venus Williams: Vulpix

Fiery, beloved -- and only outclassed by one sibling in her field.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Serena Williams: Ninetails

The epitome of fire and domination.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Marshawn Lynch: Rhyhorn

Rhyshawn.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Mike Woodson: Diglett

No, he's not an active athlete. But c'mon.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Ndamukong Suh: Gengar

The smug looks on both faces says it all.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Michael Phelps: Seadra

Who would win in a race? 

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Ronda Rousey: Hitmonchan

So strong. So intimidating. But vulnerable in one key area...

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Holly Holm: Hitmonlee

That. Kick.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Steph Curry: Pikachu

Everyone's lovable hero that could do no wrong... right?

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Klay Thompson: Raichu

In theory, he should be better than Pikachu. He's bigger, more athletic -- but still not quite as desirable.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Robin Lopez: Tangela

Sometimes you wonder how he can even see.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

LeBron James: Articuno

If this past NBA Finals didn't prove that he has ice in his veins, then nothing will.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Jose Altuve: Charmander

The bite-sized catalyst that anybody would want to start their team with.

(AP/The Pokémon Company)

Pablo Sandoval: Snorlax

Perhaps Panda is just assuming the Snorlax position until spring training.

(AP/The Pokémon Company)

Russell Westbrook: Electrode

This outfit definitely fits the most electrifying player in the NBA.

(AP/The Pokémon Company)

Phil Kessel: Dragonite

The talented, if slightly pudgy, star that you'd take on your squad in a heartbeat.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Johnny Manziel: Magikarp

He should, one day, amount to something great. But for the extended future -- and maybe forever -- he's merely a Magikarp.

(Getty/The Pokémon Company)

Crying Jordan: Gloom
