credit goes to Porygandrew on serebii.

Bulbasaur/Ivysaur/Venusaur: Toads with dinosaur-like characteristics. Note: they have sprawled legs, which are not what dinosaurs had. Toads do not hop all the time, they sometimes crawl.
Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard: Charmander is a salamander, which in folklore is associated with fire, Charmeleon is a hadrosaur/salamander mix, and Charizard is your typical western dragon
Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise: Squirtle and Wartortle look tons like the Seychelle terrapin (and Squirtle's Japanese name is the same as the zenigame), while Blastoise is a tortoise/tank mix (note the large canons on its back :P)
Caterpie/Metapod/Butterfree: Caterpie is a spicebush swallowtail butterfly caterpillar (1 2) with its osmeterium (the pink forked thing) permanently extended, while Metapod is a Pieris Rapae pupa (link) and Butterfree may be a black-veined white butterfly
Weedle/Kakuna/Beedrill: Stages of bees, and wasps. Bee larva (this, the originally linked picture, is a bee moth larva, hence the "AphoSoc" at the end of the url is short for Aphomia sociella), bee pupa, and a wasp
Pidgey/Pidgeotto/Pidgeot: Pidgey looks far more like a cedar waxwing or a female northern cardinal than any pigeon I've ever seen, while Pidgeotto and Pidgeot are more like hawks or falcons
Rattata/Raticate: Rat and nutria ( 1 2)
Spearow/Fearow: Some sort of hawk and crane/condor
Ekans/Arbok: Generic snake and cobra - both represent a venomous snake as well as a constrictor.
Pikachu/Raichu: Mountain viscacha and kangaroo rat?
Sandshrew/Sandslash: Pangolin and porcupine/giant armadillo
Nidoran-F/Nidorina/Nidoqueen: Rabbits and, with 'Rina, rhino (which you can especially see in Nidorina's joints)
Nidoran-M/Nidorino/Nidoking: Rabbits and, with 'Rino, rhino (which you can especially see in Nidorino's joints)
Clefairy/Clefable: Fairies
Vulpix/Ninetales: Red fox/kitsune and kyuubi kitsune (nine-tailed kitsune)
Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff: Balloons with cat/rabbit ears
Zubat/Golbat: Generic bats
Oddish/Gloom/Vileplume: Radish, rafflesia
Paras/Parasect: Cicada nymph and hermit crab (1 2) Kingler's Kindom does an in-depth profile of a paracitic fungus, a cicada nymph, and the red, spotted mushroom on its back.
Venonat/Venomoth: Moth flies?
Diglett/Dugtrio: Bop-a-moles XD
Meowth/Persian: Maneki neko/seal point ragdoll cat, persian cat, and cougar
Psyduck/Golduck: Platypus and kappa
Mankey/Primeape: Pygmy marmoset
Growlithe/Arcanine: Shishi
Poliwag/Poliwhirl/Poliwrath: Tadpoles
Abra/Kadabra/Alakazam: ? (Abra looks slightly like a possom to me, and stromdusk suggests coyote). Abra is based on Edgar Cayce, the "Sleeping Prophet"; Kadabra is based on Uri Geller, the Israeli spoonbender; Alakazam's Japanese name is based on Houdini, but it the creature appears to be merely an exaggeration of Kadabra.
Machop/Machoke/Machamp: American wrestlers/Dilophosaurs - could also share the same origin as Goro (see Ledian, Metang, and Salamence)
Bellsprout/Weepinbell/Victreebel: Pitcher plants
Tentacool/Tentacruel: Jellyfish
Geodude/Graveler/Golem: Rocks and boulders and stones oh my!
Ponyta/Rapidash: Generic horse and unicorn... ON FIRE!
Slowpoke/Slowbro: Perhaps pygmy hippos!
Magnemite/Magneton: Magnets
Farfetch'd: Duck with leeks dish; also maybe samurai
Doduo/Dodrio: Kiwis/rheas
Seel/Dewgong: Harp seal and dugong/manatee/monk seal
Grimer/Muk: Sludge
Shellder/Cloyster: Scallop and oyster
Gastly/Haunter/Gengar: Hitodama/Sogen-bi; partially formed ghost; doppelgänger
Onix: Wyrm? (HT thinks earth dragon)
Drowzee/Hypno: Tapir baku and hypnotist
Krabby/Kingler: Generic crab and fiddler crab
Voltorb/Electrode: Pokéball mimics or ball lightning
Exeggcute/Exeggutor: Eggs and coconut tree
Cubone/Marowak: One idea is that they're prarie dogs wearing those cow skulls you find in the desert. Others say they're too reptilian, and think they might be based on a Pachycephalosaurus skull. The Pachycephalosaurus was a dinosaur whose skull was very thick at the top.
Hitmonlee: kickboxer Sawamura Tadashi, looks like a blemyae also
Hitmonchan: boxer Ebihara Hiroyuki
Lickitung: ? (absol attacker suggested that there may be some albino fat-tailed gecko [1 2])
Koffing/Weezing: Air pollution/sea mines
Rhyhorn/Rhydon: Rhinos
Chansey: Good mother/nurses and luck
Tangela: Mess of vinelike seaweed
Kangaskhan: Kangaroo or Procoptodon

Staryu, Starmie: Starfish and sunstar
Mr. Mime: Mime
Scyther: Mantis.
Jynx: Yuki-Onna/? (There was an argument on the old thread on whether or not she was based on ganguro or Yamanba. It starts here, goes on to page 9, skips a few pages, then there's a rebuttal here on page 13.)

Magmar: Fire breather?
Pinsir: Male stag beetle
Tauros: Bison
Magikarp/Gyarados: Chinese legend of a carp turning into a sea serpent/dragon

Vaporeon/Jolteon/Flareon: Foxes? with cat/dog characteristics: mermaid, electric dog-thing, and fire... foxy?-thing, respectively.

Kabutops: Trilobite skeleton/mantis
Aerodactyl: Long-tailed pterosaur

Wooper/Quagsire: Axolotl and giant salamander

Magby: Perhaps another mythical salamander
Miltank: Cow
Blissey: Good mother/nurses and luck
Raikou: Smilodon, Asian legends about tigers bringing clouds or rain
Entei: Fuu dog/Shishi
Suicune: The connection with the North and its dog-like shape lead some to believe that it is based on a wolf; the facts that the other two are based on cats and that it has a comparatively short and wide muzzle lead some to believe that it is based on the cheetah; the facts that it is known to purify water and that it has this large thing sticking out of its head lead some to believe that it is also partially based on the unicorn. Heck, it's probably a mix.
Komedic Konservationist has suggested the civet (Civet standing and Suicune in a somewhat similar pose)

Sceptile: Green basilisk /Leaf-tailed gecko (Pokémon of the Day Chick thinks that Sceptile's tail looks like part of a juniper bush. I do, too. X) ) Also, Porygandrew thinks that the yellow "seeds" on its back has to do with cupping. Perhaps someone can find a plant that looks like Sceppy's tail and has large yellow seeds?

Torkoal: Red-foot tortoise /coal - Also the Kotasu
Spoink/Grumpig: Pigs (maybe somebody saw this website ! XD), perhaps the biblical "neither cast ye your pearls before swine" (Matthew 7:6) was snuck in there as well
Spinda: A drunk, tiny, pinkish and tan panda?/teddy bear brought to life? Could have gotten its red color from the Red Panda or it could be part of getting a red face from drinking a lot, a concept (being drunk) that's part of Drunken Boxing. Why a panda? Who knows...
