If someone were to compile a list of the greatest mathematical equations ever, you'd see a lot of different equations. Some would say that all equations are beautiful and great. And there will be some top contenders like Euler's identity, \(e^{i\pi} +1=0\) and Einstein's extremely popular \(E=mc^2\). But today you'll see the greatest equation ever. They are actually a pair of parametric equations that look like this:

What is so special about these equations, you say? Well, when plotted, the equations look like this:

Whether you're a fan of Poke'mon or math [or both], you should enjoy this! This is easily the greatest thing I discovered while fiddling around with Woframalpha. Here are a couple of more equations plotted. I'm not adding the equations. That would take up a lot of space.

Mewtwo. Blaziken CharmanderIf you have a lot of time to spare, you can go through all of them here. There are over \(700\) of them.

And you don't have to be restricted to Poke'mon. For example, here's Batman:

If you want, you can post your favorite curves on the comments section below. Have fun!

Great! I have a question that how did you copy those parametric equations (but it's in latex) or is it just an image? – Bhargav Das · 2 years, 10 months ago

Fortunately, I didn't type out the whole equation because that would have taken me half an hour [give or take] at least. It's an image. If you hover your mouse cursor over the image, you can see the alt text, "When will this end?". This was a reference to how big the equations are. – Mursalin Habib · 2 years, 10 months ago

Is there someone that sits down trying out hundreds of combinations of equations to get the right one or do you doodle on a software and it spits out an equation? – John Muradeli · 1 year, 10 months ago
