Tarot nicknames

Tarot cards are used by tarot cards readers to look into your past, present or future to help you gain insight in life. A traditional tarot deck contains 78 cards, split into two groups and some of the main cards work perfectly with Pokémon in terms of nicknames.


My methodology for picking tarot themed nicknames is as follows:

  • I will list some games from the franchise and note down characters from each
  • I will then assign Pokémon I think would match well with those characters
  • It might be that some characters lend themselves well to more than one Pokémon, particular if they’re based on regular animals such as fish or horses
  • This is a work in progress
