Do you remember AI-generated Pokemon?Now you can catch your own

A few weeks ago, when 2021 coughed and splattered to the last day, we wrote about a Buzzfeed data scientist named MaxWoolf who created the AI ​​algorithm that invented Pokemon. The results ranged from “Oh, look at it … a mountain of limbs and eyes” to “Dear Lord, does anyone have a flamethrower?”

But we know what you really want, and so is Buzzfeed, Wolf’s employer: you want a unique and unique bot-generating Pokemon that no one else has.

Woolf and Buzzfeed writer Dave Stopera have worked together to create a Buzzfeed quiz to do just that. Choose some important facts about your Pokemon — its type, where you found it, and how you describe it (of course, “Kafkaesque” is one of the options) — And the bot will generate your own new best companion. Yay!

Here are some of our works:

In Nuzzlos Run, you can only catch Pokemon that look like Frankenstein's monster made by Reject Build-A-Bear.
