What pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution

etc etc
rants welcome about thing you hate, criticism, pokemon you hate the designs of
also jokes, comic etc

1. Team building. I go through each Pokemon game just waiting to find the next Pokemon I want to catch. I bond with my six members through the whole game, and there is no better feeling to me than seeing my six little underdogs conquer the Elite 4 at the end.

2. The only starter Pokemon I like enough to actually use in my team is Totodile, so I guess it would be him. But generally I have a rule not to use starter Pokemon.

3. Ice. I love Ice types. They started out pretty rocky, but they've given me some of my favorite Pokemon from Sneasel to Frosloss to Beartic

4. Brick Break. It's a good solid move that has saved my ass more times than I can count. I think pretty much every single game since the move was introduced someone on my team has used it.

5. Protagonist - Call me a sucker, but Red
Gym Leader - Tough call, but I really liked Byron.
Rival - Silver, no doubt. I didn't like him much as an actual "rival" (I think Blue was best there) but I liked him the most as a character.
Team Enemies - Team Rocket, no doubt. I liked them because they didn't strike me as these cartoonish terrorists. They knew that the true secret to ruling wasn't in summoning god like creatures to do your bidding. It was all about the Money. Money and Pokemon can rule the world just fine.
Elite Member - Lorelei. 'cause...ok, she was just really sexy.

6. Um...Hmm...I don't pay much attention to legendary Pokemon to be honest. I've always really liked Celebi.

7. The vast majority of baby Pokemon. Except for the very rare occasions where the Baby is capable of learning or accomplishing something that the adult form can't, I really just don't understand the purpose of a baby Pokemon.

8. I think it would be nice if they made some sort of male evolution for Combee. Something akin to Heracross. That's just off the top of my head though. I'm sure if I put more thought into it I'd have a better answer.

Extra - I would also like to name my favorite Pokemon from each generation

1. Haunter
2. Sudowoodo
3. Tropius
4. Froslass
5. Scrafty

And I'm very excited to see all the new stuff that Black and White 2 is gonna bring to the table. They're kinda making it sound like Gen 5 is gonna have even MORE new Pokemon on top of all the ones that B/W introduced. New starters, perhaps, and even more beyond that. Needless to say, I'm excited.

Finally I'll just drop of these funny flash videos.

I admit I'm bothered by the fans who refuse to admit that the new Gens are any good, but I'm also just as bothered by the fans who try to put down Gen 1 just for being old.

I remember when English names were being announced and people were like "Ah, that name is so boring and unoriginal" someone would always just go "Seel. 'nuff said." and I'm like "No...no, it's NOT enough said."

Like in my opinion, Geodude is one of the most clever awesome names I've ever seen for a rock monster, and Gen 5 hasn't exactly broken away from tradition. We have a Pokemon called Boldore.

"Ekans is just Snake spelled backwards. How lazy is that?"
Yeah...thank god they grew out of that and came up with great new names like Rotom.

In my eyes, every game has had its fair share of great designs, not so great designs, clever names, simple names, etc. etc.

I mean honestly, Gen 5 is my second favorite now. I thought they did a great job.

My least favorite Gen is Gen 4 because I thought they put too much emphasis into new evolutions, but even Gen 4 has some of my favorites in it (Gastrodon, Froslass, and Leafeon is my favorite Eeveelution)

TL;DR version: Hooray for Pokemon.

1
I love the adventure of seeing new places and experiencing new things. The journey across an entire continent in pokemon feels massive, showing you so many sights and places. I also like building the baddest team possible with whatever 'mons are available. I've had to make some hard decisions in Gen 5, because there are a lot of fantastic new pokemon that I absolutely love.

Gen 5 was a fantastic Generation for pokemon, leagues ahead of Gen 4 IMO. It's the best Generation since Gen 2.

2
Ugh... Hard one.
Kanto: Charmander
Johto: Cindaquil
Hoenn: Torchic
Sinnoh: Turtwig
Unova: Oshawott (Samurai otter! FTW!)
3
Either Psychic or Dragon
4
Let's not get started here.
5
Who's your fav characters
Either Red, Gold, or Black
I don't really have a favorite gym leader, none of them really stick with me.
Silver. Easy.
Either Team rocket or team galactic.
Lance

6
Mewtwo! Back in his day being legendary meant something!

7
Gyrados. Why in the hell would you ever evolve a perfectly good magikarp once he knows flail? He sweeps teams and breaks souls.

8
Mmm... Can't say I know for sure.

1) Probably the gameplay, it's cool that you can get a team of what appears to be elementally tuned/superhuman animals and simply progressing through it.

2) Cyndaquil in Johto.

3) Psychic

4) Dragonbreath, it's reasonably strong (probably not as strong as other powerful yet accuracte moves like thunderbolt) and has a nice Paralysis rate.

5) favorite characters
Red, he's plain, but there just isn't anything to hate, Gold would've been close tied between Hilda and May. (not that those 3 are bad)

Fantina...all that purple, those random bits of french and even that hair and dress! :O

Silver, he was an awesome rival, Blue/Gary wasn't really that intimidating, maybe he was a slightly aggressive, doesn't help that the rivals of the 2 later gens was either friendly or unmemorable.

Team Rocket, mostly because their goals were more feasible and realistic, even after being beaten down by a 10 Year old Kid, they didn't stay down, for the past 3 years they have secretly been conducting experiments with radiowaves, and they still have ownership of 2 casinos.

Cynthia (Champs count?) she just feels more fleshed out compared to past E4 members, she has mystique, fuels the backstory and shes probably one of the major strong women of the series. <3

6) Cresslia

7) Possibly the Kricketot line, not that its useless, just that out of all pokemon within their respective generations, Kricketot simply isn't that memorable, sure it evolves at level 10, but it doesn't compare to other pokemon in the area such as Shinx, Starly or even possibly Budew.

8) Probably Jynx, think about it, sure it has slightly more in common with Mr. Mime than it does with Marmar/Electabuzz, but it gained a prevo with those 2, but it never gained an evolution, im unaware of its battle ability, mostly want it to have an evolution for consistency's state.

Plucky:

Silver, he was an awesome rival, Blue/Gary wasn't really that intimidating, maybe he was a slightly aggressive, doesn't help that the rivals of the 2 later gens was either friendly or unmemorable.

Does N count as a rival? If so, then it's actually a tossup between him and Silver for me, personally.

N is seen as the true rival of b/w.

CODE-D:

N is seen as the true rival of b/w.

Awesome, I'm glad to have that confirmed. I absolutely refused to believe that Cheren and Bianca were your two rivals in that game. They were both pathetically easy every time they showed their faces.

1. The journey I guess.

2. Oshawott and Isshu/Unova

3. Psychic

4. The move Psychic

5. Solana or Kate if the Ranger Series counts. White/Hilda if not.
Blaine.
N. Loved him as a character. I really hope he comes back in Black and white 2.
Team Plasma. The hypocrisy of some of their actions made me laugh.
Cynthia or Lance.

6. Mewtwo because of his story in the anime, or Shaymin Land Form.

7. Hmm... I'll get back to you on that.

8. Anything that doesn't already have an Pre/Evolution.

Oh! I came up with my answer to #8.

MOAR EEVEELUTIONS!!! We still need Ground, Steel, Ghost, Rock, Flying...

1. I like capturing and training various Pokemon. I also enjoy developing different teams to battle against other trainers and the Elite Four.

2. I normally choose the Fire starter, but if I could choose, it would be Charmander and start in Johto (my favorite region).

3. I like using a balanced team of different types. My favorite type to use is Fire Pokemon.

4. It's a tie between Flamethrower (because it's a Fire move) and Metronome, because it is completely random and I usually end up getting the move that I needed.

5. Protagonist = Male protagonist from Pokemon Silver/Soul Silver
Gym Leader = Flannery from Lavaridge Town
Rival = Gary/Blue
Team enemies = Team Magma and Team Aqua
Elite member = Lance

6. Lugia, but I would also say Mew.

7. I don't believe that any one Pokemon is useless, especially if you can develop an effective team. For a while, though, I believed that Smeargle was useless because it only had Sketch as a move and it would just continue to Struggle for the rest of the match.

8. Rapidash. I have no idea why they haven't given Rapidash a new evolution. Can anyone say "Fire Pegasus" Pokemon?

1. The journey beats the destination (pokemon league)
2. Jhoto and Cyndaquil
3. I love electric types, badass pokemon and only one weakness albeit an annoying one,
Raichu is also my favorite pokemon
4. Fav move is good ole thunderbolt (but Thunder combined with rain dance is even better)
5. Fav protagonist is Red (named him Tizzy)
Gym leader: Lt Surge and Blaine tie
Rival: Silver
Team: Rocket
Elite member: Grimsley
6. Fav legendary is Groudon
7. Magikarp (but we love him anyway)
8. Can't think of any.

Also the designs have kind of gone downhill (Candlewick and Ice-cream pokemon...really) but nothing too major.

1: Collecting Pokemon, Evolving Pokemon, and nostalgia.
2: Chimchar
3: Ghost and/or Psychic
4: Sky Uppercut
5: Not sure
6: Kyogre and Deoxys (Defense Mode)
7: Magikarp
8: Luxray, Lucario, and Alakazam

1) Starting out with nothing but a token monster and 500 Pokes, and ending up with a team of 6 world-destroyers one-shotting everything
2) Honestly? Probably an Eevee in Kanto, or perhaps Sinnoh
3) I'm partial to Dark Types, with Fire Types as a secondary preference
4) Eh, I never found myself partial to any particular move..
5)
a) Protagonist: If the Manga counts, Silver, as Manga Silver was badass. Otherwise, I dunno, Red
b) Gym Leader: Never really had a favorite...
c) Rival: Blue from RBY. He was a challenge, literally to the end, as opposed to other rivals whom you beat for the last time before even meeting the E4
d) Team Enemies: Team Rocket from RBY. They didn't have ludicrous goals, they were just making a profit through any means they wanted to.
e) Elite Member: See Gym Leader..
6) Latias, if only just for the Pokemon: Heroes movie..
7) Is there any doubt it's Magikarp?
8) I'm still holding out for an Absol Evo..

1. The best thing about pokemon would be the gameplay. Kids can leap right into it without trouble while more seasoned players can focus on the small details to make their ultimate team

2. The starter I would choose would be Chimchar and the region I would prefer to start in would be Hoenn

3. I feel more partial towards the fighting or fire type, because they have some of my favourite pokemon (such as Arcanine and Typhlosion for fire and Scrafty and Lucario for fighting)

4. Favourite move...I guess I don't have one

5. Protagonist: I like Red the most, mainly due to the nostalgia factor. Without it, I don't particularly have one
Gym Leader: Brawly. He always provides a challenge for me and does it through sheer power as opposed to hax (looking at you Whitney)
Rival: Blue. The rivalry seems more defined to me seeing as he has been Red's rival "since they were babies" according to Oak
Team: Galactic. They had the largest scale operation, superiors that actually fought (well most, unlike the Sages in Team Plasma) and they would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids and their dumb professor!
Elite Four Member: I don't have one

6. Why Arcanine of course! It's a legendary pokemon. Wait...you mean it's not? Alright, Arecus for the pure reason that it is a god of pokemon

7. Sunkern. It has the lowest base stats of any pokemon. Even Magikarp has better stats and that is saying a lot!

8. Too many to mention here

SargentToughie:

Plucky:

Silver, he was an awesome rival, Blue/Gary wasn't really that intimidating, maybe he was a slightly aggressive, doesn't help that the rivals of the 2 later gens was either friendly or unmemorable.

Does N count as a rival? If so, then it's actually a tossup between him and Silver for me, personally.

Id probably count him as a Rival, though then again, BW essentially has 2 Rivals, Cheren is more on the helpful side of the spectrum though, he's some guy who jumps you near some corners in the attempt to be champion who would most likely get bored due to having the power instead of the enjoyment of the journey, he essentially gets his information from textbooks.

With that said, he probably has more personality than the rival of R/S and Pseudo-Rival from DP.

1
For me, it's the journey. You start off as a measly kid with one pokemon that grows into a giant party. You are the ultimate 10 year old beating up fully grown men/women champions, catching legendary pokemon that are practically GODS etc..
2
My favourite starter is Treecko. He's pretty badass from the start. My favourite region is Johto.
3
My favourite type would be ground. Maybe rock?
4
My favourite move is Ice Beam. Nice and strong, but also accurate. The ice type pokemon is terrible though, just teach Ice Beam to a water type. God forbid you have a pure ice type...
5
Fave character: Joey... and his ratatta
Protagonist: Gold. Not the one from HeartGold either. Proof he is the best:
image
Gym Leader: Brawly. Brawly is IMO THE toughest gym I have ever fought. I know second gyms have a habit of kicking your ass (except in gold/silver), but brawly is the worst. I mean, REALLY tough.
Rival: Blue (gary).
Team enemies: Rocket. I'm not really bothered otherwise though.
Elite member: Lance. Him and his three dragonites. Imagine how much time it must take to get THREE dragonites.

6
Mewtwo. Mewtwo is IMO the best legendary in existence.

7
Luvdisc.

8
Luvdisc.

NUMBER 1!

I love the whole 'Build your own team' thing. The experimentation with what pokemon works with different teams is pretty much the driving force of why I continue to play the games - I often breed pokemon to get baby versions just to trade into a new game. The fact that the pokemon are different every time (My first Chandelure is still my favorite, with 400+ Special Attack) helps with the experimenting, as it means using the same pokemon twice doesn't mean it'll work the same.
I really liked the design of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, but Heal Balls have the best design for me (in terms of animation when sending pokemon out).

NUMBER 2!

My Starter would be Snivy, and I would (obviously) start in the Unova region. Granted there are a fair few kick-ass pokemon out in the other regions, but... Chandelure, Braviary and Krokorok. I mean... come on - you can't repel awesomeness of that magnitude.

NUMBER 3!

Fighting types. Fighting can hit most things for decent damage, has a very wide spread of physical attacks and has very few weaknesses. Fighting type pokemon also have a fairly wide movepool, allowing them to handle a multitude of situations with ease.

NUMBER 4!

Favorite move: Aura Sphere. Seriously - 90 attack power with infinite accuracy. What's more amazing then that? Close runner up would have to be Thunderbolt, as it's just as versatile an attack, and can be taught to a much wider range of pokemon.

NUMBER 5!

Favorite Protagonist:
The Main character of Pokemon: Colluseum. Mainly 'cause he was neither a) a 10 year old and b) a paragon good guy. He used to be a member of the Orre region's Team Snagem (Team Rocket with bald people) but decided to screw them over. Yes, he gets roped into the whole 'saving the land from the bad-guys' thing, but at least he (I imagine) hooks up with the girl at the end.

Gym Leader: Roland(?) from Ruby/Sapphire. He uses normal types, so he comes at you with 2 Slakings. If your not packing a strong fighting type, he's one of the hardest fights in the game, as the Slakings basically 1-hit kill everything that isn't a Lairon.

Rival: Gary. Because it's GARY MOTHERFUCKING OAK.

Team Enemies: Either Cypher or Plasma. Cypher rarely use Zubat/Rattatas, relying on powerful teams of varying types, and Plasma for... their kick-ass battle music? I dunno, it sounds better then the rest of the fight songs (against lowly mooks).

Elite Member: Cynthia. She has a wide range of pokemon types, all of them are extremely powerful and she appears to be the only Battle where the enemy uses any form of strategy. She's the hardest fight in game, in both Platinum and Black/White.

NUMBER 6!

Palkia. Nice design, Water/Dragon type and had some pretty sweet moves - definitely a favorite on my end.

NUMBER 7!

Luvdisc. Completely and Utterly useless. If you ever have a pokemon faint to Luvdisc, you must release that pokemon instantly. That is a shame that will never wash away.

NUMBER 8!

Jynx. Electabuzz, Magmar, Rhydon and Tangela got an evolution, but Jynx doesn't? What the hell?

I wanted to hear some talk about pokemon so heres the questions
1. Favorite Things: The myth and catching the Pokemon. Oh and the battles.
2. Fav Aesthetic: Pokemon themselves ofc.
3. Ideal Starter Region and Pokemon: Squirtle and Johto
4. Fav Type: Psychic/ghost, also Normal, abused though they were.
5. Fav Move: Substitiute
6. Fav Char(s):Gary Motherfucking Oak.
7. Fav Legendary: Zapdos
8. Most Usless Pokemon: Magicarp. Duh.
9. Pokemon that should get better/differnent Evolution(s): Furret. That was one of my favorites.
10. Fav overall Pokemon: Zangoose or Furret.

1: I enjoy finding all the new pokemon as I go along so I never look for them on the internet beforehand.
2: Out of the actual starters I would pick Squirtle and probably go to Hoenn. If I could have any starter I might go for a nice ghastly or a munchlax.
3: Poison types are awesome but sadly not very common.
4: My favorite move is possibly pain split because it can be very useful as a weapon and for healing.
5: Favorites:
Protagonist would be Brock
Rival would be Gary
Team Magama/Aqua were awesome
Elite four member would be the one who uses bugs.
6: Mew is my favorite because it is pretty much a playful god. Arceus is nowhere near as godly as mew.
7: Bidoof. Even Bibarrel sucks. Its just horrible.
8: Luvdisc needs and evolution. IT is a great counter to kyogre already, imagine if it had even more power.

1. What do you like best about pokemon?/catching/the journey/story/gyms/battles/myth?
What I like most about these game is that you start off with the lesser/ beginning Pokemons and eventually you become stronger, sort of like a progress up of thing.

2. Who would be your starter and what region would you start in
Cyndaquil and Jhoto

3. Whats your type preference
Psychic

4. Whats your fav move
Hynosis

5. Whos your fav characters-
protagonist- Jimmy (Gold/ Etan from Gold/ Heartgold)
gym leader- Misty
rival- Gray
team enemies- Rocket
elite member- Drake

6. Whos your favorite legendary
Mew

7. Whos the most useless pokemon you believe to be
Unown (It only know one move and no where near useful enough to be in your team for long.)

8. What pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution
Lapra! I had been waiting for a day to see a pre or the next evolution to Lapra!

1 - Favourite thing about the game
Generally, I enjoy the Gym and Elite Four challenge that makes up the backbone of the game. However, in playing Black and White I actually found myself really relishing catching every Pokemon in the game. I also really enjoying the story in those games as well, especially as the writers crafted a fully formed story to go along with the game this time round.
2 - Chosen starter and region
As much as I like Torchic, Charmander and Squirtle, I think I'd go for Turtwig. Grass and Ground is an awesome combination to have, and I'd probably start in Johto.
3 - Preferred Type
Generally Fire, although Dragon, Fighting, Dark and Steel are always going to be loved by me as well.
4 - Favourite Move
Earthquake. Ridiculously strong, highly accurate and the idea of causing an earthquake on request is both frightening and awesome.
5 -Favourite Characters:
Protagonist: Red. The original, he has no silly looking design flaws and stands on top of a fucking mountain waiting for you like a total badass.
Gym Leader: The Next Big Wave, Brawly!
Rival: Silver or Blue.
Team Enemies: Either Plasma or Rocket post-Giovanni. Plasma had an interesting ideal behind them and post-Giovanni Rocket were just generally quite awesome.
Elite Member: Bruno or Alder.

6 - Favourite Legendary
Lugia

7 - Most useless Pokemon
Luvdisc

8 - What Pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution
No preference.

Shanicus:
NUMBER 1!

NUMBER 7!

Luvdisc. Completely and Utterly useless. If you ever have a pokemon faint to Luvdisc, you must release that pokemon instantly. That is a shame that will never wash away.

I direct you to this video, sir.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQFLwQD8Bl0

]1 - Favourite thing about the game
Definitely the deep strategic gameplay. But I LOVE the concept as well, super powered animals who fight for you in a mutual relationship in a semi futuristic world.
2 - Chosen starter and region
Piplup, my favorite pokemon is Empoleon so that's how I'd go. and I'd probably start in Johto, Sinnoh or Unova.
3 - Preferred Type
Usually Water, Dark and Steel are always going to be loved by me.
4 - Favourite Move
Surf, always reliable, also Dark void.
5 -Favourite Characters:
protagonisteither 4 or 5th gens. I like having Sleeves.
Gym Leader: Morty from Johto
Rival: Silver
Team Enemies: Either Plasma, Rocket, or Galactic
Elite Member: Cynthia and Lance were awesome

6 - Favourite Legendary
Lugia, Dialga or Darkrai

7 - Most useless Pokemon
Luvdisc, or Fartfetch'd

8 - What Pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution
Delibird needs one

1. I've gotta go with teambuilding. It may be cheap, but I always enjoy going through the guide before starting a game and plotting out a nice, well-rounded team to take on the main story. I'll typically go through the whole game with the same team.

2. I'd start in Johto with a Chinchou. I know they're kind of useless, but there's just something about the adorable little bastards I can't resist.

3. Fire.

4. Flare Blitz, ever since I solo'd Opelucid Gym with a Darmanitan.

5. Favorite protagonist- Red. Although more the fan perception of Red than the canon version.
Favorite Gym Leader- Blaine
And no opinion on the rivals, etc.

6. Mewtwo. Clichéd, I know, but he's just so badass!

7. Hoppip. Unless there's some metagame application I'm missing, I don't think that line can handle any given task.

8. I'd like to see a calf-like pokémon that can evolve into either Tauros or Miltank based on gender, because that would confirm a theory I've had since I was six.

1 - Favourite thing about the game
Those little scripted moments after the elite 4, this is probably nostalgia speaking but ever since Cerulean Cave I loved the gaming moments after the proper game finished.

2 - Chosen starter and region
Definately Totodile, probably in Hoenn

3 - Preferred Type
Steel and fire are my favourites; fire has some of the best moves and steel is just hard as nails

4 - Favourite Move
Earthquake, its kind of overpowered but I also love it's animations

5 -Favourite Characters:
People will assume the worst if I say Misty. But I seem to remember Mr. Fuji was cool.
Gym Leader: Wattson from Gen 3, because Wattson, WATTson, its funny damnit!
Rival: Silver from Gen 2.
Team Enemies: Plasma, probably because they were the most fleshed out. Although a special place in my heart is always reserved for team rocket.
Elite Member: Steven, the champion from gen 3

6 - Favourite Legendary
The regis, I don't particularly like them as much as the way you unlock them in Gen 3, Diving FTW.

7 - Most useless Pokemon
The Unowns, at least Magikarp turns into something better

8 - What Pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution
Crawdaunt. I really like Corphish, but I really dislike Crawdaunt (though his name is cool) if they had another evolution of him that looked better it would be ace.

I do like Black and White but really, bags of rubbish and ice creams? Some of the worst pokemon in this gen by far

1 what do you like best about pokemon?/catching/the journey/story/gyms/battles/myth?
The gyms and battles mostly but I like the catching and training as well, the bonding with pokemon. There's a reason it takes a LOT to change my team in the main game.

2 Who would be your starter and what region would you start in
If it was a real life affair? Probably Charmander, Kanto. I like Kanto, I know it, assuming we get all the tech/pokemon from later gens. If not, Unova is nice.

3 Whats your type preference
It's between Ice, Psychic and Fire for me. I used to love psychic and fear it too (ah Gen I) but fire has always been my staple and preferred starter type (exempting Mudkip). Ice is really cool though, probably my favourite attack type.

4 Whats your fav move
Ice Beam, weirdly. Boring I know. I like Magnitude as well.

5 Whos your fav characters
protagonist
Red. Always Red. He becomes such a badass.
gym leader Blue/Green if he counts, if not then I'll take Sabrina hands down.
rival Blue/Green
team enemies Rocket.
elite member Lance, always Lance.

6 whos your favorite legendary
Either Mewtwo (obvious but he is a total badass) or Articuno, mostly for nostalgia. Kyurem is also pretty cool.

7 whos the most useless pokemon you believe to be
...not sure...hoppip? Or one of the weaker unevolvables, Farfetch'd, Stantler etc.

8 What pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution
Jynx. Combines two of my favourite types but is a meh pokemon in looks and power. Needs something (someone else pointed out electabuzz etc. Electivire is boss).
I wouldn't mind seeing the Gen I unevolved get their further ones, Farfetch'd would be cool, Pinsir, Tauros, LAPRAS definitely Lapras. Maybe Aerodactyl, not Ditto though I would like to see it become more powerful.

CODE-D:
I wanted to hear some talk about pokemon so heres the questions
1
what do you like best about pokemon?/catching/the journey/story/gyms/battles/myth?
whats your favorite aesthetic, pokeballs, types, the world, item, clothes, towns.

Favourite parts are trying to catch them all and breeding (for stats and for shiny hunting)

breeding has a surprising amount of depth to it!

2
Who would be your starter and what region would you start in

Torchic in Johto

yes, I know torchic wasn't in johto

3
Whats your type preference

I'm very partial to bug types; I can make a pretty kick ass party just with bugs
Scizor, Heracross, Forretress, Volcarona, Excavalier, Shuckle

maybe switch some of those out for crustle, scyther, acelgor.... you get the idea

4
Whats your fav move

Psyshock

it uses your special stat to do physical damage, so it's really good for catching people off guard. What's that? a Jellicent against my Alakazam? *psychock*!!

5
Whos your fav characters
protagonist
gym leader
rival
team enemies
elite member

protagonist: Gold, because of "meet girl, kill pet, steal money, get phone number"
gym leader: Giovani
rival: the one from gold/silver
team enemies: Magma had the coolest costumes

6
whos your favorite legendary

Mewtwo by a wide margin

7
whos the most useless pokemon you believe to be

Unknown!
I mean, they're just letters, and in my eyes they're just 48 sprites (24 shiny, 24-non shiny) of wasted data! at least magikarp has some personality!

Who else raged when they finished collecting all unknowns just to find out that they could now print them all off on the gameboy printer?!?! I WAS PLAYING ON GAMEBOY ADVANCE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!

8
What pokemon deserves an evolution or alternate evolution

Kangaskhan deserves a baby form!

CODE-D:
I wanted to hear some talk about pokemon so heres the questions
rants welcome about thing you hate, criticism, pokemon you hate the designs of
also jokes, comic etc

1.)Team building & Story. So far not one of the games has yet to dissapoint me in it's climax. Makes it feel more immersive aswell if you keep the same team throughout :P

2.)The world (And how little sense the towns make...)

3.) Ermmm, Probably Jhoto, and Chikorita!

4.) Grass/Electric

5.) protagonist - Probably Dawn
gym leader - Brock (Lulz Pw'ned everytime my bulbasaur)
rival - That bloke from Silver&Gold
team enemies - ?
elite member - Bugsy

6.)Latias

7.)Munchlax

8.) Hmmm...EEVEE, Because you know - It totally doesn't have any

1. Catching pokemon all the way
2. I'd take Turtwig and start in either the Gen 2 or gen 4 regions
3. Ice
4. Earthquake, for killing everything around you in one shot, and for making 2v2 battles more fun.
5. The psychic twins from R/S because they actually strike fear into my trainer heart
6. Articuno
7. Spinda. Why make 2 million variations of it if it's a crap pokemon
8. I'd like to see a new evolution for Dunsparce where he becomes some massive angel snake thing that shoots lasers and flies faster than light or something

Luvdisc. Completely and Utterly useless. If you ever have a pokemon faint to Luvdisc, you must release that pokemon instantly. That is a shame that will never wash away.

I direct you to this video, sir.

My god... how? How? HOW????

I mean, granted the opponent did nothing to counter the sweep (Altaria with Sky Attack? Seriously?) but... come on. That's just... the person he was fighting has to have snapped his DS in half after getting sweeped by a Luvdisc.

Pretty sure Pimpnite either finds friends to let him sweep them, or it takes A LOT of tries to actually pull them off; Have you seen how poorly some of his opponents play?!?!

I haven't seen much of his student's play style, but I'm hoping that was a set-up. That kind of strategy (with those pokemon) only really works against someone who doesn't really know what their doing (Charizard vs. Celebi = Charizard wins. Especially if the Celebi is just setting up a sweeper) or against someone who is letting the other person win.

I have a bad feeling that if I watch his student videos, I'm going to go mad criticizing their pokemon play style (it's a horrible side effect of playing Pokemon for 14 years).

1: I like the aesthetic of attacks in battles. A good attack should feel like the impact goes up your arm when it hits! Blizzard from Red/Blue/Yellow is a good example, every hit rocks the screen and feels like a satisfying hit when you use it! Not like this Black/White nonsense where Blizzard is just a snowstorm across the screen!

2: Best starter is Squirtle and best region is Kanto.

Because Blastoise owns Blane's gym (and everyone he comes up against) like nobody's business! Seriously, grass types? Ice Beam or Blizzard, anything else; Surf or Hyper Beam

3: I have a preference for Flying and Psychic types.

4: Tri Attack is a fun and random attack but Hyper Beam is always a winner with me.

Red.


Gym Leader:
Lt Surge is an interesting character. Maybe a Pokèmon game based on the war he was in?
Rival:
Gary. Gary is a boss and a douche at the same time.
Team Enemies:
Team Rocket at least had a legitimate goal, unlike these pretenders Team Plasma
Elite Memeber:
Dragons are cool, so Lance I guess.

6:
Articuno or Mew

Metapod/Kakuna that only knows Harden

Can't think of one.
