    Favorite Pokemon Thread

    In celebration of generation 8's imminence, I decided to make this thread to discuss our favorite Pokemon. Sounds like a fun way to pass the time and understand the different ways people absorb Pokemon designs. I'll start with my top 20 (fully evolved) Pokemon.

    Spoiler: 
    20. Gengar - The OG Ghost-type. Still has an awesome design that effortlessly blends creepy and whimsical into one of the most iconic Pokemon of all time.

    19. Absol - Both a really cool, edgy design, and one of my favorite Pokemon backstories - basically a Cassandra Truth-based Pokemon, who tries to warn people about disasters but is distrusted because it's seen as causing the disasters.

    18. Flygon - When I first saw this design, I thought it was a Bug/Fighting type. Very eccentric design that combines a lot of elements in a natural and organic way, creating one of the quirkiest Pokemon generation 3 had to offer.

    17. Greninja - A bit of a normie opinion, what with the anime and Smash Bros. shilling, but I still love this design. The tongue scarf is such a bizarre detail you'd never see in any other game, and the sleek, nocturnal design makes Greninja one of the most creative starters.

    16. Octillery - Just the idea of a cannon octopus is so stupid awesome I love it. Combine that with one of the deepest movepools in the game (it learns Fire Blast?????) and a hilariously low-key design to make a really underrated Pokemon.

    15. Mewtwo - Even without the context of the anime or any of the spinoff games, Mewtwo's design commands such a presence that you just KNOW it's powerful. It manages to be one of the most menacing Pokemon while being blatantly based on a cat.

    14. Scizor - Yeah, like Octillery, this guy is mostly up here because the concept of a CYBORG PRAYING MANTIS is something you don't see every day. Really slick and badass design.

    13. Genesect - Up there with Mewtwo in terms of threatening legendary designs. I think I have something of a thing for cyborg bugs given this guy and Scizor are back to back. Genesect gets the edge because the lore around him being a prehistoric apex predator brought back to life is too cool to ignore.

    12. Dustox - Weird choice I know, but it has one of the most vibrant, creative designs of any early-game bug. This 'mon in particular just looks so funny to me every time I see it, I can't help but love it.

    11. Mimikyu - Just barely missing out on the top 10, by far the best Pikaclone. It's hilarious to see Pokemon take such a rare meta-shot at its own over-reliance on Pikachu and similar designs, and then Mimikyu itself is so sympathetic and lovable. And what an excellent design for an undead Pikachu.

    10. Slowbro - This guy is so funny. I don't know what it is about this design, but Slowbro is just so lovably dumb. The Slowpoke jokes got old a decade ago, but Slowbro still gets a big thumbs up from me. It's so huggable.

    9. Kecleon - One of the very few Pokemon to combine a real-world animal and its skills with an actual, applicable battle tactic. Kecleon adapting its own type on the fly just makes it so cool and unique, even if Rotom kind of did a similar thing a generation later.

    8. Victini - My favorite legendary, Victini manages to be a cute mythical that doesn't sacrifice its cool factor while still being adorable. "Nuclear bunny with a passive ability to lead its team to victory" is one of the most interesting legendary backstories, IMO anyhow.

    7. Lucario - Yeah I know he's overhyped. Still dope as hell. One of the most consistently promoted Pokemon, and admittedly I'm biased because seeing this guy in Smash Bros is what convinced me to play Pokemon in the first place.

    6. Oricorio - Pokemon with multiple forms are often either too safe or too gimmicky, but all four versions of Oricorio bring so much to the table. Super cute, an awesome dance-themed concept, and proper utilization of the region it comes from by being found on the four islands.


    5. Smeargle - Aside from using its tail as a paintbrush, I'm not sure what draws me to Smeargle exactly. He feels very much like one of the generic throwaway gimmicky Normal types, but being able to learn 99% of the moves in the game gives him a really fresh, standout gimmick.

    4. Hawlucha - LUCHADOR HAWK FIGHTING/FLYING TYPE this one needs no further explanation, it's a luchador hawk.

    3. Decidueye - All three stages in this line just exude personality, up to the silent, deadly assassin vibe of this guy. Makes him feel like a really unique starter amidst mostly traditional designs.

    2. Charizard - The classic ol' reliable starter. Not any kind of creative design, but damn he's just so iconic. One of the best, most important Pokemon in the anime as well, and that matters to me more than most.

    1. Feraligatr - Yeah this is just cuz he's my original starter Pokemon. That said I still love this line so much. So many nostalgic memories of my big croc boys <3 Perfect combo of cool and adorable that every Pokemon should strive for.

    Well, here's what I got.

    Is Quagsire really my favorite question? Well, I guess the real question is if there's anything I like more than Quagsire. Well, I guess my top 3 is pretty interchangeable.

    Here's my top 20 fully evolved (according to the Pokemon Picker):
    20. Deoxys - My mom always liked Deoxys because she's a nurse and she loved that there was a DNA Pokemon. I guess that rubbed off on me.

    19. Lapras - There's something so calming about Lapras. I don't even know what animal it's supposed to be but I love its colors.

    18. Donphan - Another one where I think my mom had something to do with it, elephants are her favorite animal. I don't really remember ever using a Donphan in any of my runs but I always liked it.

    17. Avalugg - I don't really see too much love for this one online. I don't know if he's supposed to be a turtle, but turtles are my favorite animals so there are a lot of turtles on this list, and I always thought of this thing as a turtle.

    16. Blaziken - I always picked Treecko whenever I ran through a Gen 3 game, but I always wanted to get around to doing one with Torchic because Blaziken is awesome. Gives me Captain Falcon vibes.

    15. Salazzle - I absolutely love the design of this thing. I like lizards and this is a cool-ass lizard.

    14. Decidueye - I liked Chesnaught but it was kinda goofy-looking to me, and always was overshadowed by Greninja. Decidueye reignited by belief that grass-type starters have the potential to have awesome final designs.

    13. Mew - He was always cute as FUCK in the movies. Definitely the cutest one on this list (since fully evolved tends to be more badass than cute).

    12. Typhlosion - One of the only gens (if not the only gen) where I can definitively say that the Grass type isn't my favorite. Typhlosion has a badass name and a fairly simple but awesome design.

    11. Glalie - This one is my dad's fingerprint on this list. My dad plays hockey and I always thought a "hockey mask" pokemon was such an oddly specific thing to make a Pokemon out of but he looks PISSED and ready to fuck you up

    10. Venusaur - Bulbasaur was the first Pokemon I ever used, and is definitely my favorite first-stage starter. Of course, aforementioned Bulbasaur did end up evolving into Venusaur, so there's definitely nostalgia attached to this one.

    9. Torkoal - Another turtle. He's kinda doofy but he's cute and I love the smoke coming out of his shell. Ash also had a memorable Torkoal, which helps.

    8. Serperior - Snivy is one of my favorite first-stage starters. He looks like he knows he's better than you, which is why I think it's cool that he evolves into something that looks like a monarch of some kind.

    7. Salamence -My favorite looking dragon. Maybe just because he's the blue one, but I think the blue and red together look very visually appealing and cool.

    6. Metagross - My favorite pseudo-legendary. I like his colors, but I also love how different he is from the other pseudo-legendaries. He's not a dragon, he's just a genius supercomputer with crazy psychic power. Awesome concept for a pseudo-legendary for me.

    5. Blastoise - Whenever there's a debate over the best starter pokemon, I usually defend Bulbasaur, but there's always a part of me that wants to defend Squirtle because A. turtle, and B. as much as I like Venusaur, Blastoise is cooler.

    4. Carracosta - Also don't see a lot of love for this one. I love his blue and black coloring, I love his fossil-looking shell and I love his snapping-turtle mouth shape.

    3. Heracross - I really don't know why I've always been so drawn to Heracross. I like his color of course, but I think his constant smile just puts me in a happy place. I also love how he doesn't really look like a fighting type at all but he is. One of those "looks-can-be-deceiving" type designs that I really like.

    2. Sceptile - Pokemon LeafGreen was my first Pokemon game, but Pokemon Sapphire was my older brother's. He picked Treecko, so I got pretty attached to Sceptile. He was also one of Ash's strongest Pokemon which definitely boosted his "coolness" in my mind. His leaf blades were always super dope to me. I know it's unlikely at this point, but I'll always support him for Smash.

    1. Torterra - He's a grass type, he's a turtle, and he's got a badass looking design. Those are most of my boxes. If only he was blue

    I've always felt like Lapras was supposed to be a Loch Ness Monster Pokemon. Also never really thought about Glalie being a hockey mask Pokemon, that's actually super interesting.
