Or better yet, make a parallel line that starts as a dreidel version of baltoy, then evolves into a fire type menorah. Though then again, after the lawsuit about kadabra, I have a feeling Pokémon would rather steer clear of Jewish stuff.
Now that I think of it, is there actually a shrew pokémon? If I can safely say sandshrew isn't one in any way besides the word "shrew" a dubber stuck on the end of its name? I could see one being vermin of a region. It'd be a speed demon.
And for new water types, why not a sand dollar? Also, maybe a conch, with or without a few vocal moves. Maybe that evolves from an abalone? A sea mouse could go either way of being cute or zany. Hell, why not a geoduck? Yeah, I think I'm in overboard mode here. Let's get even crazier and suggest piglet squid.
I definitely agree on a bombardier beetle, that would be a kick-*** pokémon. I designed a fake of one once, but I'm sure Sugimori could make up one times better. There also isn't a silverfish yet. I saw a sexton beetle this summer, and now I think it would make a pretty neat pokémon. Just look at this thing. I could see it making a cool ghost type, but it would probably have to be a bug/ground type, and maybe be able to pull off a lot of ghost moves. Or even get its own signature move, bury alive. Or something macabre like that. Also, I'd love an acrocerid pokémon. Just look at this little guy. That could make such a cute 'mon I bet even Misty could fall for that cutie.
And for some more birds, I've already suggested crazy enough, why not a superb bird of paradise? It's a living damn emoticon, what can top that? And there was a dove pokémon recently made, but I still think a bleeding heart pigeon would be a neat thing to be pokéfied. Even if that might be a bit dark. It sounds like something which could be amusing if creatively handled, no? The thing looks like a murder victim.
All fear the vampiric ghost skeletal uber mr. mime caterpie!

A flamingo and a sword fish/marlin are the only things that pop into my head atm.
An orangutangus! It could be normal or fighting type (like most of the primate-based Pokemons were typed).

A cockroach, preferably one based on a Madagascar hissing cockroach.
The best evolutionary designs are brought about by a balance between change and consistency.

How about a black widow spider?
It could be a dark/bug type and as far as I know no pokemon has that combination yet.
