Welcome to the Official Pokémon Thread!


Here you can discuss about the series in general, whether it be the latest game announcement to the anime/manga/TCG to your own headcanons or theories. Just sit back, relax and have a good time discussing topics with your fellow fans.


 


And if you feel like it, you can fill out these fun forms that can be found in the spoiler below.


 


General Questions:


 


When did you become a fan?:


What do you like most about the series?:


Who is your favourite Pokémon?:


Who is your favourite human character?:


What is your favourite game?:


Do you like anything outside the games? (i.e., anime, manga, TCG, etc.):


 


Make your own Pokémon gym!:


 


1. Which region you'd you be in? You can make up a region if you wish.


2. Which gym?


3. What would your gym look like?


4. What would you look like?


5. What Items would you carry? (the minimum item amount is two)


6. What’s your gym type?


7. What is your gym about? (what does it represent?)


8. Any traps, gizmos, gadgets, doohicky’s, riddles or giant walls of bug slime that the challenging trainer would have to work around?


9. What’s your team and respective levels? (include second challenge) (list movesets if you want)


10. How many subsequent trainers would be present?


11. What badge and TM would you give out?


12. What would your lines be? (greeting, halfway beaten, last pokemon, defeat, re-challenge)


13. For no particular reason, when would the trainer have to call you to challenge you a second time?


 


Create a team!:


 


So, not only does everyone have their own preference about what Pokemon they use, but some even have multiple teams! But not all of those teams are for battling. So I’d like to ask, what kind of teams do you have? 


(But let’s have a little fun with the first one. Most of us have a team in mind if Pokemon was a reality. Here's an example to give you an idea!)


 


Team 1:


(insert picture of team or just list them)

Reason for team:


 


Team 2:

Team 3:

Team 4:


(insert picture of team or just list them)

Reason for team:


 


Add more teams if you want!


 


Trainer class:


And, just for shits and giggles, what kind of trainer are you? Or rather, what trainer class do you feel is closest to either your real life self or your training style?


(Add more than one is one trainer class isn’t enough! -http://bulbapedia.bu...Pokémon_Trainer


 


(insert picture of trainer class, your own trainer or just list them.)


 


Reason for trainer class(es)?:

Favorite is Chikorita. And I'll just put in what I said in a previous blog.

 

 

 

Yeah, you all saw this one coming. Now, I never really explain why I love Chikorita. It's been a Pokemon I've actually loved since I was young. When watching the anime as a child, this would be that one Pokemon Ash had that was the most memorable to me. It's crush on Ash was just hilarious to me. I also love it's partially reptilian design being a fan of reptiles. Sadly, it gets an underrated spot seeing as it's a starter in a game that has a lot of gyms strong against grass types. Regardless, let the green leaf Pokemon shine!

Gliscor is my favourite, because of its typing, ability and appearance. It looks so cool, and it can annoy people xD

Scolipede is best Pokemon. I mean who could hate good ol' bug horse?

In all seriousness though Scolipede would be an epic in real life. I would love to have my own 8 foot tall demon bug.

My favorite is aerodactyl. It was my most powerful Pokemon back in gen 3 and it won me many tough battles. I particularly remember making a 6-0 comeback victory with my aero as my last Pokemon in competitive play.

 

I also have a huge soft spot for joltik and galvantula. They're the only spiders I'd ever want to hug.

I have two favorite Pokémon: Absol and Arcanine.

Absol is the boring one since I mostly love him so much due to looks. He's a Pokémon I always use when I catch it, it's a dark type which is always cool and he has a canine/feline look. It's mysterious looking and has a mega-evolution! Absol has one of the highest Attack stat of non-legendary Pokémon and it always appears where a disaster is about to or going to happen (yes, in the games too).

While Arcanine, on the other hand, is mostly due to nostalgia. Arcanine is a gigantic dog Pokémon which is a plus since I adore wolves and dogs, is a fire type, my favorite type, and just looks amazing! By the way, Arcanine was going to be a legendary alongside Articuno and Zapdos.

My favorite pokemon is... wait for it... Typhlosion!  I may be slightly biased because it is my only strong shiny and one of the only pokemon I put in the effort to EV train.

You know what I don't get? The competitive side of Pokemon. Don't get me wrong if you want to play competitive all power to you, it's just I've never understood it. My friend churns out his perfect IV Pokemon like a machine and uses combos that are so weirdly complex in battle I can't even explain them.It's just boring to me, I just meander through the games catching what I want and maybe finishing the game. I've only finished ( as in defeated the elite four) in 2 out of the 6 games I've played. I actually find the battling part of pokemon to be my least favorite. I waste more time in Pokemon-amie than I do training. I sometimes have caught myself saying I wonder what that Pokemon will look like when I feed it or pet it. Where was  goig again? Oh yeah competitive, I don't understand tiering and ubers and tournament rules, why put game mechanics in just to ban them later?

Another Pokemon thread AWWWFUCKYEAHBUD

 

Favorite Pokemon? That's easy! Well...maybe I should say there's a tie for my favorite:

 

post-11300-0-14321500-1426622924_thumb.jpg

 

This is going to be a sort-of repost from my other posts around these forums, but it essentially goes like this:

 

  • I love the Eon Duo's designs. You can see their personalities in every piece of artwork depicting them: Latias, the more playful, happy-go-lucky Eon dragoness, and Latios, the more serious, no-nonsense "I will mess you up if you mess with my friends" Eon dragon. They can tuck in their arms to fly faster than jets, and can actually speak to their Trainers. How awesome is that?
  • They're very strong in battle. Latias has pulled through for me uncountable times through thick and thin. She can take down Mega-Rayquaza all by herself! Latios could do the exact same, too, even more safely if I put a Choice Scarf on him. Their base stats even fit their personalities - Latias is more defensive, while Latios is more offensive.
  • The bond these two share is unlike any other Pokemon, and I love any media that depicts that well. Brother and sister or in a relationship (remember, kids, the Eon Pokemon aren't unique, therefore it is possible), it always sets me *squee'ing*. Hell, they're the same color in their Mega forms because purple is what you get when you mix red and blue.

Buuut if I must decide on just one...

Oh yeah competitive, I don't understand tiering and ubers and tournament rules, why put game mechanics in just to ban them later?

 

 

The only thing the official Pokemon rules ban are version mascot Legendaries and any Pokemon that ever held Mythical status. Held items? Only the Soul Dew is banned, because otherwise, the Eon Duo would be nigh unstoppable, especially Latios. Tournament rules are in place to promote variety and creativity, not restrictions and rules.

 

Think of tiering as giving every Pokemon a chance to shine and removing Pokemon that reduce the amount of choices you can make within a certain tier. Want to use your Milotic? She'll get trashed in OU, but in UU, she's pretty damn good. Tired of trying to build a team that can deal with Greninja at all times? It's a good thing he was banned to Ubers, then.

 

Another example: Scolipede is actually very good! Since he can know Baton Pass and his Hidden Ability is Speed Boost, you can Pass speed increases to a Pokemon that desperately needs it; say, Gyarados, or Chandelure?

 

It's really fun to create a team, tailor it to what you want it to deal with, and then see if it works. If it does, great! If it doesn't, you can always go back and make changes or improvements. Even if you have an awesome team, you can always improve with how you execute your moves or who you pick when you see the opposing team. It's very challenging, and I love that a game like this can bring that challenge.

 

But you've always got to remember, as Grimsley of the Unova Elite Four once said:

 

"If somebody wins, the person who fought against that person will lose. That's battle. A good contender just seeks the next victory without bragging after winning, and without getting upset after losing."

My favorite Pokemon? MY FAVORITE POKEMON?! U wanna know my favorite Pokemon?!

Magikarp.gif

Magikarp! There I said it!

 

 

But all joking aside, Totodile is my favorite Pokemon of course. Not only is it part of the water type master race, it's also got the "I don't give a f***" kind of personality I like.

My favorite Pokémon is Rotom. I also like Jirachi, Aegislash, Porygon-Z, Litwick and Magnezone. (I generally prefer steel-type Pokémons).

I played Pokémon Green a bit, and Pokémon Pearl, Heartgold and White a lot.

If you guys couldn't tell before, my favorite is Tyranitar Floatzel. Just look at it.

It looks like such a jerk and I love it. It's also fast and is excellent at physical offense or sweeping.

My old main 6 (were have I heard that praise before?) that I always battled with were Charizard, Pidgeot, Raichu, Gyarados, Articuno and Mewtwo.

 

Of them, Raichu was probably my favorite. It evolved from the first Pikachu I got when I started playing Yellow. My cousin started playing long before I did so her pokemon were at much higher levels. Despite that, when matched head to head, my Raichu almost always managed to beat her stronger Zapdos in battle. Thunder was his best move.

Yesss Pokemon thread~! :wub: I've been in love with the franchise for...14 years now? Wow O.o I might move onto other things in the meantime, but I always come back to Pokemon c:

 

And I'm gonna be that guy and say my favourite is still Pikachu (and Raichu) :P they're just so cute and I guess I just have so much nostalgia and good memories from when I first got into Pokemon, and I got a huge Pikachu plushie for my 10th birthday who is still my favourite :kindness: I always have Pikachu/Raichu in my team on games when it's possible, it just feels wrong not to - and when people hate on Pikachu (which happens a lot), it just makes me protectively love it more :P and I still really love the friendship between Ash and Pikachu in the anime, even though I don't keep up with the newer seasons.

 

my other favourites (no particular order) are Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Whiscash, Drifloon, Barboach, Altaria, Vaporeon, all the Eeveelutions, Chansey, Clefable, Sandile, Munna....and a bunch more I'm probably forgetting :please:

 

They're mostly my favourites cause I find them cute or have good memories associated with them, but there are pretty much no Pokemon I really dislike (with the exception of Mime Jr., cause I hate clowns >.>) - even ones I didn't like that much at first have grown on me when I've gone through the game with them, which I think is one of the awesome things about Pokemon - I really loved when XY gave us Pokemon Amie so you could interact with your Pokemon more :pinkie:

 

My favourite generation is Kanto/gen 1, but I love them all, and favourite games...Red/Blue/Yellow for nostalgia, and probably X and Y for the gameplay, customisation and new features c:
