Recipes inspired by Pokémon

I've grown up playing Pokemon since Primary School and have stuck with it. My favourites include Luxray, Zweilous, Lairon, Decidueye, Cutiefly and Seismitoad. As they continue to make more Pokemon (currently at over 800), I like to learn about the abilities and evolutions of each. Forming inspiration from each of these Pokemon has helped me to create the following recipes.
