Who do you like following you around?

#1 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

Yes, I understand that having a certain Pokemon in the number 1 slot (aka, the slot that allows them to follow you around) plays into the strategy of battles and such, but forget all that shit for a second.  If it were simply an asthetic decision to be made, which of your prized Pokemon would you have following your trainer around?  
Personally, I like having my Raticate running behind me because I am amused at the thought of having a giant rabid-looking rat following me through respectable establishments.

Dratini is great to look at as it resembles a giant worm following you around.

Kangaskhan is my homie. girl knows how to strut it.

Something massive. Like Snorlax. 
 
Having Lugia tail you is sort of an interesting image as well.

The one that when you stand still at just the right angle, it looks like its blowing you.

Pikachu obviously. With a light ball and as many speed EV's as possible of course.

How does Wailord look? Some Pokemon walking around outside the confines of their prisons just seem ridiculous.

A fast, miniaturized Oynx or Snorlax is still hilarious to me.

It's awesome to have my Arbok walking behind me. A huge ass snake that looks like it's about to chow down on a 10 year-olds head is just too funny.

I'm boring, so I dig my starter following me around generally.  
 
If not Pikachu for old times' sake. God, yellow was the shit. 

#12 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1105 posts) -

Just got the game, so I only have one: Totodile. Talking to the little guy  makes me blush.

any of the pokemon that are said to be as big as mountains in the pokedex, but smaller then you when roaming freely outside

Lugia is pretty funny- he's about five times larger than any other pokemon- takes up like six squares.

#15 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

Togetic or Umbreon

.If I can have a fucking Gyarados following me around then I don't see why I should consider having any other pokémon following me around?

#17 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -
@Lies: For realsies? 
I assumed that the following Pokemon would just become the same size as the player (one square). 
 
Will have my Dewgong, Arcanine or Poliwrath following when I finally get the game on Friday. Cos' they're awesome.

the best is krabby! He walks sideways like a crab, so he looks at the screen if you walk to the right.

Yellow still is the shit, man. I was playing it the other day. D'ya remember the 8-bitty 'Pikachu!' from the show they had in there? It was all like "PIZZZCASKUE"

Yeah that game was also for strict hardcore poke-gangsters too, what with Brock being as impossible as he is. And yeah I love that crunchy 8-bit mess of a soundeffect. D'aww he was so cute haha.

@XII_Sniper: Yeah. You wanna beat Brock? Caterpie. HARDCORE.

Sweet Jesus, I remember that.

I had to go catch a Krabby just for this. That was pretty great. 
 
I usually have Furret or Weepinbell behind me. Furret because it's adorable and Weepinbell because it just cracks me up and is one of my favorites.

My Mareep evolved into an Ampharos and no longer looks like a sheep. D:

  hmm, having an ampharos  when challenging 1st gym (flying pkmn) would be pretty WIN
 
i want a krabby/kingler now. especially if i can make him say "cookie cookie"
#27 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1105 posts) -

I like my birds to follow me around. Especially Ho-oh. That thing is huge.

#28 Posted by LooityLoo (42 posts) -

Lugia still cracks me up following me around. What I like best, though, is that no one seems to question it. Oh cool, a bigass legendary pokemon. That's nice. My Rattata is so strong!

#29 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

I've actually found that Gyarados looks ridiculous, especially when you're faceing the screen with it behind you.
It looks like it's just waiting for the right moment to bite your head off.

My fortress name Brakston. He might be the lower level of the group but he has soul.

Pikachu.

Just about any Legendary... For when a trainer wants to battle, I can go, "You sure about that? I have a freaking Ho-oh/Lugia right behind me..."
