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

Scyther was dope!

Skarmory was pretty cool too, and a friend of mine had a shiny one (green wings) which I may or may not have now... I don't know why but I always quite liked Tropius too.

@Turambar: Not sure what you're on about with the cultural traits thing, however the first Marowak sprites in Pokemon don't seem to have the fused bone skull of its latter incarnations. Not sure if I'm seeing it wrong or if they changed it, and in that case maybe it was done to take attention away from the fact that the creature's skull would later be used as a helmet by its children. Then again I'm not sure if fusing said skull to its face was the best alternative. Man, Pokemon is kinda messed up.


One thing I thought was interesting was that some people have apparently theorized that a Cubone is a baby Kangaskhan that has lost its mother, and that Kangaskhan was originally going to be the final evolution of Cubone (There was also a theory that the Kangaskhan Marowak code was moved instead of being deleted and that this was the origin of MissingNo). I kind of like this idea because the whole thing comes full circle with the Kangskhan and the baby.

As things are now, how does EVERY Cubone having the skull of its mother make any sense? Best not to think about it.

MissingNo evolves into Kangaskhan sometimes right? I fucking love the existance of MissingNo, such an amazing glitch, and its crazy how much detail people have found out about it.

Such a hard question, I really can't decide but I have a limited it to a few.

  • Caterpie (No idea why!)
  • Butterfree.
  • Starmie.
  • Snorlax.
  • Vulpix.

Gyrados I think that's how to spell it, it has been many a full moon since I have played that game or even seen anything Pokemon related.

@Flawed_System: Good question...

#127 Posted by cjcox (116 posts) -

From each Gen: Dragonite, Heracross, Metagross, Drapion, Haxorus

Overall Metagross.

#128 Posted by CatsAkimbo (703 posts) -

Eevee! Adorable, looks like a fennec, and has the potential to turn into several different things.

#129 Posted by habster3 (3618 posts) -

Hmm... probably Arcanine. Electabuzz and Cubone are pretty cool too, though

#130 Posted by 1337W422102 (1183 posts) -

Fuck yeah, Seaking.

#131 Posted by Fattony12000 (7976 posts) -

Number 94, the hard hittin' Ghost/Poison type Pokemon of your very darkest nightmares...


#132 Posted by TehFlan (1954 posts) -

Snorlax forever.

#133 Posted by Legendary (157 posts) -


#134 Posted by Vigil (232 posts) -

Id have to say Zapdos, there was something magical about catching it in game, then getting the card in a pack.

#135 Posted by Pox22 (354 posts) -

Kadabra. Psychic was overpowered in Red/Blue, since all the Ghost pokemon had the Poison subtype. I loved Kadabra (not counting Alakazam, because I never had anyone to trade with) though because he had such an amazing move set without any TM's. Psybeam, Psychic, Barrier, Recover. So good.

Arceus, everyone was totally jealous of my Arceus EX.

#137 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1271 posts) -

Ampharos. I like it's battle cray, and it's pretty useful in HG/SS.

#138 Posted by Example1013 (4855 posts) -

Tyranitar. Why? Because fuck you, come at me, I have a goddamn Tyranitar.

I just picked up Pokemon Red yester day. Already got blastiose

#141 Posted by MocBucket62 (1446 posts) -

I've always really liked Arcanine, it was my favorite as a kid because it's a part dog part tiger that breathes fire! It would be either Arcanine or Blastoise, because how badass is a turtle with guns as shoulders!

#143 Posted by spacetrogg (63 posts) -

My favorite has to be Poliwrath- though my love for it has been tainted with tragedy. When Pokemon cards were at their peak I got my hands on a weird pink cat thingy which kinda sucked so one of the older kids took me aside, agreed with me that the card I had was lame and offered me a pitty trade of a Poliwrath. I jumped at the chance, only for the guy to gleefully announce that the card I had just traded away was a Mew and he ran off to tell the rest of the playground about his conquest.

To this day I have not allowed myself to train a Poliwrath in any of the games, water stones go unused in my bag and the Elite Four all mock my puny Poliwhirl...

#144 Posted by AiurFlux (936 posts) -

My favourite Rapidash...
It... cute... lovely... smart... plus amazing... you think so? Oh yes... it stunning... kindly... love it! Hug it when sleeping... warm... and cuddly... spectacular... ravishing... Oops! Look at the time! I kept you too long!

#145 Posted by Video_Game_King (36566 posts) -

Sukuna-Hikona's pretty cool.

#146 Posted by oraknabo (1590 posts) -


#147 Posted by Fistoh (133 posts) -

I really like Dusknoir, I think it looks so cool, not to mention the fact that I love the Ghost type. I actually like a lot of the Gen V pokemon too, especially Hydreigon, I just like the deisgn of it, and it's definitely the coolest of the generation.

#148 Posted by Clinkz (1116 posts) -

Persian, bitches. That's right, you see my Persian you know I'm going to look classy as hell stomping your ass.

#149 Posted by captain_max707 (538 posts) -

Porygon, because the name is hilarious.

#150 Posted by Ulain (329 posts) -

My favorite is Missingno. I mean, how can you not love the adorable glitch champ?

But seriously, I think I will always have a place for Cubone. When pokemon came out, I hated the damn things since I mostly saw stupid ones. Then my friend showed me the guide book with the index in the back, and I saw what a badass a child-like dinosaur would have to be to wear his mom's skull.

I'm not sure what the fascination is with Gen V recycle-mon; the only cool one I saw was Sandile and his evolutions. Most of them just look like they got rejected from previous versions of the game, and GameFreak finally said "screw it, let em in".
