    What are "Signature Pokemon"? They are the Ace Pokemon, the strongest of the strong, the most well-known team member, the representation of their trainers. Usually there's only one signature Pokemon but in rare cases like Volkner's team, there can be more than one. Anyways the list is the Favorite Signature Pokemon of the Sinnoh region. Also keep in mind, signature Pokemon are based on only the games. No Pokemon Adventures manga, no Pokemon anime, just the games.

    The list below is my personal categorization of what I think are the signature Pokemon of each trainers. Feel free to disagree or point out anything you feel missing. The Sinnoh Frontier Brains were excluded due to lack anything that resembled a Signature Pokemon.

    Roserade, it is very elegant yet hits hard and has a good movepool.
    Weavile, since it is one of very few Ice-types that is a glass cannon. I love its design, too.
    Floatzel, I like mustelid Pokemon in general, and it is very quick for a Water-type.
    I also like Lucario, Mismaguis, Garchomp and Luxray. I decided to not include Arcanine, since its moveset when you team up with Marley is horrendous (she is in a cave environment, yet Arcanine has no attacks that hit Rock-types decently hard).

    This is going to be a hard one. Also I think Bertha’s ace was Rhyperior, Lucian’s was Gallade, & Flint’s Magmortar in Platnium.

    This is tough. I like Saturn’s Toxicroak, basically all the Gym Leaders but Volkner’s my all time favorite with both of his aces, and Flint’s Magmortar. Cynthia’s Garchomp is a given lol

    Was kind of debating myself whether to include the Platinum changes because they already had aces previously. Weird seeing an Elite Four member have another Ace. Now I've decided, wynaut?

    Gen's (Riley's) Lucario is my pick. I know that it didn't do much other than serve as Gen's ace, yet along with Gen himself, it was a nice callback to the 8th Pokemon movie.

    I have a love-hate relationship with it since it was definitely one of Gen IV's more memorable signature Pokemon, yet for bad reasons. Even to this day whenever I restart the Shinou games and play all over again, I dread facing Shirona (Cynthia) since I always fear that my Pokemon won't be able to defeat her Gablias (Garchomp).

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    Whenever I read these kind of posts, I always think: but Ice Beam exists?!? Even Ice Fang on Floatzel does a lot of damage to it.

    Unless you're doing a challenge-run, there's literally nothing witholding you from getting a Water-type and giving it Ice Beam.

    Currently I'm doing a Fighting-type run. Normally this wouldn't be too bad. But considering that Infernape, Toxicroak and Lucario are all weak to Earthquake, I'm kinda left with Gallade to do most of the damage (and burning it) and finishing it off with Lucario's Dragon Pulse. But that still leaves so much of the rest of her team as a problem.. Between Spiritomb, Togekiss and Milotic, there's a lot to fear..
