How many Pokemon can you name in 20 seconds?

I’d crack under the pressure

At one point I could name every Generation 1 Pokemon in order. I’m a little rusty, but I can still mostly do it — unless someone gave me a time limit.

That’s just what Nintendo did with Game Freak producer Junichi Masuda, when he’s asked to name as many creatures as he can in 20 seconds. He does admirably with 30, but he cracks near the end before spitting out “Mew!” With 801 in all at this point it’s more of a test of how fast you can speak than it is memorization, but Masuda is fun to watch regardless.
