Shakespeare or Pokemon?

Can you pick the Pokemon names out of this list of Shakespeare characters?

I thought this quiz would be a lot easier than it was. I assumed the difference between Shakespeare names and Pokemon monsters would be obvious enough.  I was wrong - I got 4/10.  Then I looked at the comments on the quiz itself and people are all, "10/10, big deal." But I realized that it's because they're memorizing the Pokemon characters, just like we'd do for the Shakespeare characters. Admittedly I've got little knowledge of the lesser plays like Pericles and Cymbeline, which is where many of the questions come from, just so you know.

I thought it would be easier to just invent my own, so I mashed up both lists :)
