Best/Worst and Favorite/Least Favorite Pokemon FROM EACH TYPE!

Discussion in 'Poképolls' started by SapphireL, Jan 21, 2009.

    Geekachu _____________

    Here it goes:


    Bug --- Volcarona. Probably obvious, but he's one of the most well designed Pokes
    Dark --- So many to choose, (Vullaby, Darkrai), but I'll go with Zoroark. It's just- cool
    Dragon --- I'm really leaning towards Gen V, but Haxorus reeks coolness
    Electric --- Raikou, again, it's just cool and well designed
    Fighting --- Scrafty. I love how they mixed a lizard shedding its skin and a gangster
    Fire --- Heatmor, strangely. I liked it's fire tongue, and the fact it can learn Bug Bite I find hilarious
    Flying --- Staraptor, again cool, and an awesome name to match
    Ghost --- Giratina is a great, unexpected Pokemon. Both of his formes are awesome
    Grass --- Lots to choose (Snivy, Sawsbuck) But my favourite is probably Roserade
    Ground --- Excadrill. The way it turns into a drill in the anime is really clever
    Ice --- Lapras. It's just really mysterious... and enticing...
    Normal --- So many I love (Minccino, Stoutland, Snorlax) but my favourite is Togepi, because it's so adorable. Sprites and sugi artwork don't do its anime counterpart justice
    Poison --- Drapion for its awesomeness. Pauls is brilliant in Ash's final battle with him.
    Psychic --- My favourite type, but I'll have to go with Reuniclus. It's on my White Team, I love it
    Rock --- There's not many Rock Types that I like, but I'll have to go with Roggenrola. I laughed when I saw its name, and it looks like a Bom-omb
    Steel --- Bronzong. It's really peculiar but is surprising relevant and well designed to a tale in Japanese Folklore
    Water --- The largest type, the largest choice. I love ones like Psyduck, Staryu, Piplup, but my favourite is probably Oshawott. It's really adorable, and despite the rage against Samurott, I think it's the best way it could have evolved without looking boring and samey


    Bug --- Weedle, it's so silly how it eventually evolves into a bee. I love how prior to platinum, it couldn't inflict damage on steel types.
    Dark --- Liepard. From my experience in white, it gets really annoying
    Dragon --- Going to have to say none. I don't dislike any of them.
    Electric --- Zapdos, I just don't like it. Probably because it reminds me of big bird from Sesame Street
    Fighting --- Probably have to say Cobalion. It's design is just really mismatched and generally weird
    Fire --- Magby. It's eclipsed by the cool entity of Elekid
    Flying - Golbat. They're really annoying, and so far have killed two of my loved Pokemon in my Diamond Nuzlocke -.-
    Ghost --- Not really one I hate, but I'll go with Dusclops since in game, Battle Tower, Elite Four Phoebe, it can be REEEEAAAALLLY annoying
    Grass --- Again, not really anyone that sticks out, but I'll go with Lileep. It's just... I don't know what it... I'm confused
    Ground --- Stunfisk. It's just got no purpose whatsoever.
    Ice --- Jynx. Whenever I see it I just think... why?
    Normal --- Purugly. It's all in the name.
    Poison --- Swalot. Because.
    Psychic --- Despite Reuniclus being my favourite, you can't deny that the curl on Solosis' head is a sperm cell
    Rock --- Probopass. There was no need for it. I like a quirky design, but the iron moustache is stupid
    Steel --- Klinklang. I know there's only so much they could've done with Klink, but evolving doesn't count when you just pick up another gear
    Water --- Simipour's dreadlocks look stupid. And it also became annoying on the Battle Subway once, you never like loosing your Pokemon and then having your foe mocking you *just smile and wave Simipour*

    I'll do Favorites AND Best/Worst.

    Favorite/Least Favorite:
    Bug- Butterfree I suppose / FREAKING WHIRLIPEDE. So annoying to fight.
    Dark- Krookodile is a boss. / Purrloins get realllly annoying.
    Dragon- Haxorus or Hydreigon. / Druddigon, I dont dislike it, but it's on the bottom of the cool list.
    Electric- Eelektross or Luxray / Plusle and Minun! Whats the point? Also, Stunfisk.
    Fighting- (I'm using Blaziken for Fire) SO Machamp! Boss. / Keldeo is a disgrace to Fighting types.
    Fire- Blaziken! Not even that good, I just love using it for some reason. / Magmortar, so unneccesary IMO.
    Flying- Braviary and Staraptor are beasts. / Emolga. Stop showing off that you think you're better than all the other Electric rodents :p
    Ghost- Chandelure! Love the typing, design, and stats! / Dusknoir. You probably see how much I dislike most 4th gen evos of older Pokemon.
    Grass- Hardly ever use Grass but Victreebel stands out to me. / Budew. Seemed like Roselia was already weak enough...
    Ground- Used Krookodile for Dark, so Dugtrio! There are a lot of great ground Pokemon! / And then there's (You guessed it) Rhyperior. I enjoyed Rhydon. Why go further?
    Ice- Sneasel and Weavile. One of the few 4th Gen evos I enjoyed. / Buh Snover.
    Normal- So many! Furret, Ursaring, Stoutland! / Buh so many. Bidoof. Cleffa.
    Poison- NIDOKING. / I'm sorry, but Trubbish. And Stunky.
    Psychic- Espeon and Gardevoir. / Never liked any of the Psychic/Flying (Except Lugia)
    Rock- Oh man, Tyranitar, Archeops, Gigalith. / Ironically, Boldore. SO ANNOYING. I much prefer Gravelers appearing every 2 steps.
    Steel- Easily Aggron. / BRONZOR GO AWAY. Please.
    Water- Quagsire! Sooo cool. Also Samurott. / Luvdisc, Surskit.

    Best/Worst: (Not counting legendaries)
    Bug- Heracross or Scizor, probably / Oh gosh... Weedle, Caterpie, Metapod, Kakuna, Wurmple and its evos, Kricketot, all equally bad in my opinion.
    Dark- Tyranitar, Hydreigon / I'd say Poochyena or Purrloin
    Dragon- Hydreigon / I think... Bagon.
    Electric- Eelektross is pretty dang good. / Tynamo may be riduculously weak, but Plusle and Minun don't even evolve.
    Fighting- Gotta say either Machamp or Lucario. / Tyrogue, for sure.
    Fire- Arcanine. Or Volcarona. / Litwick and Numel are pretty weak until it evolves.
    Flying- Braviary maybe. / Pidgey, Hoothott, Taillow, Starly, Pidove, Zubat.
    Ghost- Chandelure! / Frillish or Shuppet
    Grass- Exeggutor can be pretty good / Budew can not.
    Ground- Krookodile, maybe Rhyperior / Phanpy, no doubt.
    Ice- Walrein, pretty beastly. / Freakin' Smoochum.
    Normal- Slaking, defs. / Rattata, Sentret, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Zigzagoon, Bidoof, Patrat, Azurill, Happiny.
    Poison- Nidoking and Nidoqueen. / Zubat, Metapod, Kakuna, Budew, Oddish.
    Psychic- Alakazam and Metagross. / Munna! And Natu. And Abra.
    Rock- Tyranitar, Golem. / Roggenrola, Geodude, Nosepass, Bonsly.
    Steel- Aggron, Metagross, Ferrothorn / Magnemite. Not even bad, but the worst.
    Water- Gyarados, Walrein. They destroy all. / Magikarp and Feebas, obviously.

    First, simple explanation to most of my list is: no sympathy for pokes I'm sick of seeing already, no matter how good they perform, unless they're one of the few that I actually like too. I've also refrained from naming a dual-type poke twice, even if a few of them deserve it. No ubers mentioned either, just because.

    Type - Best / Worst

    Bug - Armaldo / Forretress
    Dark - Absol / Spiritomb
    Dragon - Altaria / Dragonite
    Electric - Zapdos / Electrode
    Fighting - Medicham / Infernape
