What is your Favorite Pokemon?

#1 Posted by Halos_god (207 posts) -

What is your favorite Pokemon? Mine is exeggcute. The thought of a group of six telepathic eggs was always appealing to me.

I don't know why but I've always liked Pidgeotto for some reason.

Always had something for Rhydon.

Am I doing it right?

#9 Posted by Codeacious (957 posts) -


That's right, I picked a Gen V. Come at me. I like the Gen I/II dudes a lot more overall, but Zoroark is just awesome for his disguise ability.

Speaking of Pokemon, 151 different artists make their own interpretation of the 151 originals: http://pokemonbattleroyale.tumblr.com/

Gengar has always been my favorite. It just looks awesome plus it's a ghost type, my favorite Pokemon type.

Cubone. He wears his mother's skull. You know he's for real.

Charmander is a close second.

Vote numero dos for Dragonite.

#16 Posted by MooseyMcMan (12051 posts) -

Blastoise. It's a goddamned giant turtle with cannons.

#17 Posted by Dagbiker (7022 posts) -

Ditto, because it can be any pokemon you want it to be. I would have it be a girl.

#18 Posted by Halos_god (207 posts) -


The new pokemon are retarded

When I was 9, I really wished I had my own Arcanine but my parents got me a Labrador Retriever instead, pfff

Now 19, I gotta admit that good ol' Max is a better pet than a fiery lion-dog.

#20 Posted by vorpalparasite (343 posts) -

Cubone, and then perhaps Farfetch.

#21 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

Mr. Mime is the only correct answer.

#22 Posted by Halos_god (207 posts) -

@Dagbiker: I like him to.

Dang... I wasn't thinking about him. I also like Regigigas.

Charizard, always and forever. One of my favorite things ever, let alone favorite Pokemon.

Charmander or Charizard. You can't beat him. Well, unless you use water, electricity, or god forbid, rock attacks.
I think Absol is a cool "new" pokemon.

#28 Posted by Mike_Sandbag (47 posts) -

I've got to go with Gengar. I love the whole Gastly line, as well as most Ghost-type Pokemon in general. Though Gen III really dropped the ball on their ghosts... Banette and Dusclops? Meh. In Gen V I'm a fan of Chandelure and the Litwick line. But really, there are a lot of amazing Pokemon so it's hard to pick a favorite. I'll always have a soft spot for Venusaur, my first starter. Ironically he was also the first holgographic Pokemon card I ever got. My 11-year-old self was convinced it was destiny. :)

I have always been partial to Farfetch'd although Cubone wins bonus points for wearing his dead mother's skull as a hat.

#30 Posted by samcroft90 (102 posts) -

Poliwhirl, no idea why

#31 Posted by jlev880 (212 posts) -

If its the original 151 I would definitely go squirtle, but if its all pokemon it has to be tododile.

#32 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4748 posts) -

I like Gengar and Koffing are the two that sprung to mind. I could not tell you why Koffing but something about it is endearing to me.

#33 Posted by Spoonman671 (5165 posts) -

I heard there was this pig who's sort of on fire.  Also, he's a wrestler.

It has to be Porygon the vaguely racist tron duck.

#36 Posted by Getz (3482 posts) -


#37 Posted by Robot_Sneakers (418 posts) -

It would probably be Arcanine, though jigglypuff is a close second.

#38 Posted by Slay3r1583 (684 posts) -

Jolteon has always been my number one favorite. Empoleon is a very close number two.

#39 Posted by WizardShazam (142 posts) -

Many may compete for my second favorite but Scyther has been number one since the days of Red/Blue.

Pikachu. I really liked the show, at least that first season.

#42 Posted by JonathanAshleyMoore (299 posts) -

Bulbasaur... the adventures we had...

#43 Posted by DrHawking (218 posts) -

Aerodactyl because dinosaurs!

#44 Posted by Shindiggah (346 posts) -

I've always liked Noctowl, Xatu and Feraligatr.

Cubone and Tropius are pretty cool too I guess.

#45 Posted by tsiro (222 posts) -

I've always been rather partial to Wartortle. Squirtle was too little and Blastoise too big and chunky. Wartortle was a lean, mean, water-shootin' machine.

Still have a level 100 Wartortle (got to 100 in Pokemon Blue) somewhere. Dunno which of my Pokemon games I traded him to last.

I've always had a thing for Snorlax...he always reminded me of Totoro!

#48 Posted by rockyhorrorgerri (402 posts) -

Grumpig and Dragonite.

#50 Posted by Red (6146 posts) -

Tough one. I'd probably go for the Charmander line, simply because man is that an awesome pokemon. For a long time it was Umbreon, but then I got one in game and it kinda sucked.
