Omanyte I love him so much but I can’t tell people it’s my favorite without them thinking it’s because of twitch plays but it’s always been my favorite I’ve loved him since I was a little boy watching the anime


Brilliant_Studio_875

Its a solid pokemon even without the whole helix thingy


intrepid-greninja

I mean it's a rock type so yeah it is a solid pokemon sorry


Brilliant_Studio_875

r/dadjokes XDDD


L3ondrak3

Yeah it’s a pretty strong Pokémon but not all that much it’s stats are basically best for 3rd and 4th gyms


SpeedyakaLeah

Praise Helix


spiderking55

The same thing can be said about kabotops and kabuto


Sr_Wurmple

Kabuto (just makin' sure)


Wizard_101_Official

Same but with Dragonite and the anime. It's always been my favorite pokemon


Cosmic_Honeyhawk

ALL HAIL LORD HELIX


Basculegions

Garbador and trubbish People hate them but I love them


Unova_Pkmn_Enjoyer

My name


TotalyNotTony

Absolutely based. It just sucks that quite a few of the early game pokemon are kinda not good, like the elemental monkeys


Grouden

THE SIMISIDEMAN TRIO


Thisuserisnotinvalid

I forgot they existed tbh


Unova_Pkmn_Enjoyer

Screw that crap, I’m taking a Watchhog with the most annoying moveset possible to the Elite 4 or dying trying


Arbitrary-posts

Take 6 of them


Direct_Celebration74

Same, I love them so much


reemickz

I hated them at first, but I've tried using at least Trubbish so far and it's not half bad.


PrestigiousSong7610

Same, its my fav cat pokemon


Basculegions

W a t


PrestigiousSong7610

What?


Basculegions

It's not a cat


PrestigiousSong7610

Its a cat


Feisty-Persimmon5324

No it is not


Szymi13

it is


KvasirMeadman

Its a tied-up garbage bag, those are not cat ears, have any of you even taken out the garbage.


Szymi13

oh wait people are being serious abt this? I thought someone started a joke about trubbish being a cat and i played along


LizaLolbit

They’re closer to bunny ears imo


Additional-Maize1960

If these Pokémon were introduced in Gen1 they would be icons.


Impressive-Spell-643

Trubbish is adorable


ResidentHedgehog

Trubbish is at the top of the cute but shouldn't be cute list. I love that thing.


FishyNate

Based picks


Night-Existing

Same


awesometim0

It's New York, there's gonna be a pokemon thats just trash. Idk why people think EVERY design has to be creative, there are plenty of bad designs in other generations and it's fine. Unova has a lot of great pokemon


Szymi13

This is based. I absolutely love unova and its probably on the podium of my favourite generations of pokemon. the story is one of, if not, the best built story in pokemon. and I love how many pokemon were introduced in the gen. Its is amazing overall


Brilliant_Studio_875

Its nice u love them (cant say the same, if they would be intruduced in a better generation I would prob have liked them)


progamr64

What the fuck is a better generation than gen 5?


Direct_Celebration74

Oh I just like the Pokémon, I haven’t played gen 5


TotalyNotTony

Explain to me how there is a generation better then gen 5.


Temporary-Square

The sewaddle line


eTHANos_Anime

Sewaddle is goated


Temporary-Square

Yes


Fabulous-Fox-Man

Sewaddle and levanny are some of my favourite Pokémon


Impressive-Spell-643

Awesome line, swaddle is adorable swadloon is cosy and leavany is amazing


Brilliant_Studio_875

I love it, ITS SO CUTE❤️‍🔥👄❤️‍🔥


Cosmic_Honeyhawk

Dude they Carried me in my W2 bug type, mono run


Temporary-Square

I’m saying most people think that the sewaddle line is usually thought to be the weakest bug types of the unova region but no


ILikeTrains02

Gardevoir is my favorite Pokémon due to her power and typing, but of course, other people like her for a different reason.


memepriest101

I agree. I got one in my SP wonderlocke and it genuinely saved my ass during the league


ThatGuyYT_

Now you gotta save it's ass for later


I_got_an_Error-404

oh


Impressive-Spell-643

Same and it always makes me cringe


Emerald_Sans

gardevoir, while not my favorite, is very up there. helped so much in nearly every playthrough where i had one.


Charming-Temporary68

Dewgong, it’s so disliked by the community and Nintendo themselves but I think it looks so cute and it has so much hidden potential


unoriginal_person3

It is very cute. It's really funny to me though, it's line is very memorable just because of what they did, those people really made a pokemon based on a seal, and called it Seel. fucking incredible i love them so much.


imactuallykools

Same. Based.


Many-Wrongdoer1353

Pikachu because its never shown in the anime


SoMeR4nd0mDud3

ye its overshadowed by every other Pokemon in existence especially Clefairy, star of the show


Pumpkin_Cat14

_hmm_


Impressive-Spell-643

Most underappreciated mon


cryolemur

Sobble and inteleon I think there great pokemon and honestly my favorite


SeasonAlternative810

Very much yes to this. The line always had an underlying spy theme to them in their dex entries, like turning invisible for Sobble or water traps for Drizzile. And Inteleon, well I'm just gonna list what comes to my head. -Water finger guns -Knife tail -Glider -The eye thing he does during Snipe Shit animation -Gmax U.S. trained sniper with 300 confirmed kills


The_Auramaster

Lucario. So many people will either give the (mostly) SFW answer of "ugh, Lucario is so overrated" or the NSFW answer of "oh you just wanna fuck him, huh?" You can't like anthropomorphic Pokémon nowadays and It's honestly annoying.


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

The people who give the NSFW answers just wanna fuck Pokémon more and are probably projecting it onto you. The people who give the SFW answer or probably overthinking the fact that he got a goddamn good movie.


The_Auramaster

I just think Lucario is cool simply due to his (Subjectively) Badass Design, and his ability to sense aura and emotion. But yeah, if we're gonna mix in the movie then that also gives him telepathy making him even cooler. As for the NSFW side, people can be into what they want, just don't push it on others. I don't wanna hear anymore copypastas about eeveelutions or hear arguments about which anthro pokemon is the hottest. Keep that to yourself. I mean you wouldn't go to a stranger IRL and start talking about your sex life (At least I hope nobody does that.)


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

I feel the EXACT same way! Keep the NSFW stuff to yourself, if we want to know your kinks we’ll ask(I won’t it’s just weird to ask)! Also would love to be an aura guardian, that way nobody can jump scare me (a lot of my cousins are into horror).


The_Auramaster

I mean Horror isn't that bad once you get used to it. That said I grew up with Scary movies, horror games, and Creepypastas as some of the stuff I was into (I think I get it from my mom because she likes horror too) So maybe I'm just used to it to the point it's just meh to me. I just have the thought proccess of "Well it's not real, so why should I care? It's entertaining and that's what matters." However I freak out at even fictional spiders, but I have arachnophobia to blame for that. That said if your cousins are sneaking up on you IRL, I'd just use a spray bottle like they're cats or something. Don't wanna get wet? Don't be a dick lol.


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

I’m an arachnophobe as well! My biggest issue with horror is not how it looks or the sound affects(those are awesome and a good soundtrack can suck you in to pretty much anything). When I was younger me and one of my cousins were locked in the bathroom by an older cousin and a second older cousin jumped out of the bathroom closet dressed as ghost face and they were so silent that the two of us did not notice them in there. My issue with horror is that I can’t trust others to not jump scare me at every opportunity (they always do). Even if I know nobody is there the association of all the jump scares has made horror a hard thing to watch. The only exception is YouTube let’s plays as I can focus on the players reaction and get more of a laugh.


The_Auramaster

Well if you guys are all grown up now, then if they pull this again just hit them and proceed to say "Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't know it was you!" Then they'll stop because they know if they scare you you'll punch them lol. (jokes aside, they'd kinda deserve it.) But if you wanna get into some scary stuff, there's a really old movie I like called Gremlins. I don't exactly know if it's a horror movie or just has monsters, but for an adult it's not that scary. Plus you can tell it's just puppets. Kinda funny how one of my favorite movies though is just one I saw on a movie shelf when I was little and was like "Oh, fluffy animal! I wanna watch it!" and then said fluffy animal got wet, causing it to make evil twins that then turn into green monsters. Yeah, sounds crazy, but is actually a good watch (Especially for something from the 80s).


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

I’ve seen Gremlins! I’ve never found it scary just weird(I was so confused throughout most of it) I’m also into the 80s movie the lost boys which is about vampires. The make up is good but I’m one of those vampire fan girls so I’m good with that. Thing is I saw those before the ghost face incident, so I have 80s horror under “good and fun memories(which is also where I have other 80s movies like stand by me, the sandlot, the goonies, and labyrinth)” and not “thanx for ruining this for me Jane and Tomis(not there real names)” thing is I can listen to the sounds of the jump scares from FNAF but play the video without the sound and it gets me every time.


Impressive-Spell-643

Yep exactly


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

👏👏


Impressive-Spell-643

Yes 1000% agree and it's so annoying


cfq10

Imagine telling people your favorite pokemon and all you get in response is shit like “how horny are you?” Like bro that just says more about you so shut up

Swellow is dope


memepriest101

I agree. I have one in my alpha sapphire shiny only run and it’s helping me out loads


Broad_Appearance6896

This reminds me of a YouTuber I watch. Unironically, as a kid their favorite Pokémon was Gardevoir, their favorite animal crossing villager is ankha, and their favorite final fantasy VII character is Tifa.


AbsoluteRandomPerson

Alpharad?


Broad_Appearance6896

Yep


epiccoolquester830

Hmmmm is it the internet funny man?


Broad_Appearance6896

If you are referring to Alpharad, yes


TotalyNotTony

Don't forget he's good friends with JadenAnimations and likes Vaporion too.


DeletedUsername23

"So who's your favourite story time animator ?"


Slightly_Default

I don't blame him. Gardevoir is an amazing Pokémon and Tifa is a great party member. Bob is still better than Ankha though.


Broad_Appearance6896

My favorite villager is relatively unknown, their name is flurry


Slightly_Default

The white hamster? She's cute!

TheMind34

FazzDaBest

Bulbasaur, as it’s seen as a joke


Toust279

I think Bulbasaur is the best kanto mon


Bromar_m_100

Definetly, it's the most consistently good choice between the starters, and has good offenses for attacking or good support and status moves for a more defensive playstyle


Temporary-Square

Shiny fraxture over shiny haxorous


Fantastic-Being-7253

Hisuian zorark. I think it’s better than the original.


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

I don’t think it’s NEAR the amount of under rated or hated enough to be here


Fantastic-Being-7253

I said more so because I think it’s better than the original.


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

Don’t get me wrong I do think that it’s better than the original but I also think it’s to popular to be placed here(I think it’s to good to be mentioned anywhere on this posts comments)


Fantastic-Being-7253

Oh oki. Makes sense. Have you seen it’s shiny? Looks dope.


Doctor_Blastoise

I really like Pansage and Simisage


boto5

Simi gang rise. I love those guys

Meowstic. Mikey called it ‘creepy’ in his swsh pokedex video


Impressive-Spell-643

Meowstic is so awesome such a cool design (for both forms) and wrecked in my Y playthrough

It’s so cute and I just wanna hug it forever


Slayer_Rekt

Bisharp I like it, looks cool, a sword hands, and a helmet


Cosmic_Honeyhawk

I always think like he's evil Gallade, I like both so much


DecayedWolf1987

I could go with Lopunny, Gardevoir, and Vaporeon because they’re some of my favorites, but they seem a bit too obvious. So I’m gonna talk about Simisage. The elemental monkeys are a neat concept: give the player a Pokémon strong against what their starter is weak to. The three wise monkeys are a cool inspiration, but it’s executed poorly. Simipour is ugly, and Simisear should not exist, but I think Simisage is really nice. The official art displays “speak no evil” by having it use hand signs as if it were communicating. Its face is pure cocky confidence, and I love its leafy pompadour. Simisage is a well-designed Pokémon, but it’s sad that people never see past the other two.


Toust279

Simisage is a good design but people will see the bad in something more than the good


epiccoolquester830

Longest comment yet thanks for the essay I have to read


DecayedWolf1987

It’s just me gushing about Simisage’s design, nothing too crazy


Ove5clock

Cinderace, some…’opinions’ of it and lopunny are the same. Most people hate Cinderace tho due to it looking human. I personally think Cinderace is the best gen 8 starter in all forms.


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

Agreed Intelion is to spindly (seriously it makes me think the wind will make it snap) and gorillaboom makes me think of steroids (too big for its own good)!


Impressive-Spell-643

Because for Pokemon fans every humanoid Pokemon is a "furry bait" no matter how nonsensical it is


EeIectro

Mine is absol, but not for the edginess that it has. To me it just looks like its fur is soft to pet and cuddle in


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

I can see it


Impressive-Spell-643

Agree it absolutely is (accidental pun )


Terraria_Ranger

Same, but with Volcarona. Mof floof


dadumbhooman

ossoawat


UsaruMadd

Charizard, i think he's cool, but people say it's overrated overused and that he shouldn't be so popular, is still like him tho


unoriginal_person3

I'm in the same boat with people who say it's overrated but i wouldn't say that it shouldn't be so popular. I still like it, though it is my least favorite of the kanto starters (Pikachu and Eevee are included here) but it is a good design, simplistic by the standards of modern pokemon imo, but it's just enough complexity to be interesting, but not so much to just be a jumbled mess of "visual noise".


M1R4G37

Welcome back to this episode of “The Internet Ruins Everything!!!” (I like lopunny too)

joe713aintcool

Hype Gen 5 Starter


OverlordCantPlay

Treecko, literally everyone mentions “but mudkip” I love every gen 3 starter, but Treecko was the one I picked 2013 ruby and sapphire, and Nostalgia holds it captive.


OneLegTom

I picked Mudkip as my first starter in Ruby, but I picked Treeko for Sapphire. I like them both. Treeko has more viability in gen 3 because like 1/2 the mons are water type


OverlordCantPlay

Plus mudkip has a 4x when evolved


OneLegTom

Offset by an immunity to another common type that’s usually OP in Hoenn


OverlordCantPlay

I don’t know why, but I was going to argue about who’s better Treecko or Mudkip, when I realised it’s pointless, and something I don’t actually care about.


Impressive-Spell-643

All gen 3 starters are amazing, including treeko


Impressive-Spell-643

I wish I could live the day where I say Vaporeon is my favorite Kanto Pokemon without people thinking about the....you know....the thing. The thing about Vaporeon? Yeah that.

Cursola, and maybe Shiny Cursola Turns out Cursola is the NUMBER 1 LEAST KNOWN Pokémon(I’m assuming it’s the same for the shiny if not let me know)! It is less known than LITERALLY ANY FISH POKÉMON(that is in 20th place)! Here is a link https://www.thegamer.com/least-known-pokemon/

Emboar and Chesnaught

Alolan Dugtrio. I will elaborate if asked.

Please do I want your reasoning!👏👏


TrixterTheFemboy

I fell in love with Dugtrio and Diglett in Indigo League, I've liked them ever since, and Alolan Dugtrio is them but also Steel Type and it's the perfect combination of cute and dumb/funny-looking in my opinion.


Lost_Khajiit_BadMoon

Glad we feel the same


PrestigiousSong7610

My favorite pokemon, Scizor. I really really like it, and my friends sort of make fun of me for liking Scizor a lot, saying that its just a red bug

Incineroar for me... I always wanted a tiger pokemon, and contrary to the opinion of most fans, I love its design. I wish it were good it singles too ( I don't play doubles and that's where it really shines so I never get to use it ) but yeah, overall, great pokemon. Easily my no. 1 favorite

I like catching male bunearys and lopunnys and naming them Femboy. I have a half box full of femboys in legends arceus /srs


Yendks

Charizard. I get that Game Freak has gone too far with its recent pandering of it, but that's the company's fault, not the Pokémon's.


GamePlayer800

Lopunny is literally one of the Pokémon I have the most attachment to. Diamond was my first real introduction to Pokémon and I still remember all the terrible decisions a 8 year old could make while playing that game. I gave both my Torterra and Giratina HM moves and basically never leveled up anything that wasn't my starter or a legendary. However, I did have a few outliers when it came to non-legendary team members. I had caught both a Buneary and Zubat that would both evolve through friendship throughout the adventure. I am currently checking my old cartridge now, and apparently I had the following as my winning team of the league on July 28, 2010. Torterra: Level 83 at the time, now 97 Dialga: Level 52 at the time Haunter: Level 35, from the evil Mindy Clefairy: Level 22, don't even remember why I had it on the team Crobat: Level 25 at the time Lopunny: Level 17 at the time, now 32 (Leveled up the night I wrote this) Anyway, my top three favorite Pokémon from this game specifically would have to be the ones I had the most history with, them being Torterra, Lopunny, and Uxie. Torterra carried all the weight on my team. I remember using Lopunny for a lot of contests that I thoroughly enjoyed. And Uxie was the one of three lake guardians I actually caught. I didn't know to save before a legendary battle back then, yes I was that dumb, and in the process lost both Azelf and Mesprit. They were the only legendary fails I had in Diamond but I wouldn't get my chance to catch them again until I played Platinum. Anyway, the reason I got Uxie was because apparently while fighting it initially, I got so enraged I rage quit and a year or so later after I had learned the arts of capturing legendries via saving before the fight, realized it came back after my rage quit reset. Regardless, I like Torterra and Uxie, but Lopunny will always be one of my all time favorites due to it being a major part of my first playthrough in this series. And now, I unfortunately have to deal with all the comments if I say that as a young adult... Thanks internet. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.


webslinger071802

Incineroar. I know there are others out there that love it as well, but I more often than not see people saying that it looks awful. I think it’s amazing, and I genuinely love the entire evolutionary line

Primarina Best Water Starter, best Alola starter, and best Pokémon of all time. I HATE it when people say this thing is an ugly abomination. The true ugly abominations are the people who think that. Primarina is a wonderful majestic blessing and no one will tell me otherwise

How can you look at cramorant and think it is better then frostmoth or centiscorch? Cramorant is dumb.


RosyGh0st

Purugly


OneLegTom

The only opinion on Lopunny is that it’s a straight fit bait mon. Which it is. But it was one of my mains ORAS because it’s mega was competitively viable.
