    Profesco gone gently

    Rather than cluttering up the forum with three dozen "What's your favorite ____?" threads, we've set up these Favorites Stickies to contain all possible topics in a compact, easy-to-use format!

    This is the FAVORITE MECHANICS thread!

    Topics include:

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?
    (Bug, Dark, Dragon, Electric, Fighting, Fire, Flying, Ghost, Grass, Ground, Ice, Normal, Poison, Psychic, Rock, Steel, Water)

    2. What's your favorite STAT?
    (HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Attack, Sp. Defense, Speed)

    3. What’s your favorite MOVE?
    (Absorb to Zen Headbutt! Which one do you like?)

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    (Every Pokemon has one. Maybe you're a fan of Pressure or Intimidate? Perhaps Cute Charm or Water Absorb?)

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?
    (From Pokeball to Master Ball, and every ball between!)

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    (Pecha, Kelpsy, Pamtre, Starf! Mmm! Tasty!)

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    (Including Key items! Maybe you like the Silph Slope? The Full Restore? The Bicycle?)

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?
    (Do you like letting your Pokemon sleep? Do you prefer to inflict Poison on your opponent?)

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    (Have you heard the piano play in Platinum version's Resort Villa?)

    10. What's your favorite example of GRAPHICS in a Pokemon game?
    (Are you partial to the inimitable Yellow version Pikachu, or do the 3d renderings of 4th gen Johto suit you better?)

    ... And more!
    (If you can think of a game mechanic not included in this list, post it here anyway! Don't make your own thread for it.)


    Your answers can be from any section of the Pokemon franchise, not just the video games. And don't worry - you don't have to answer every single question at once when you post. Just feel free to give a little explanation of your choices when you can. These threads are subject to updates.


    Thanks to SapphireL for original thread format.

  4. Profesco

    Profesco gone gently

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?
    Grass, because it's clean and refreshing, as well as unorthodox as far as the "elemental" types go.

    2. What's your favorite STAT?
    Hmm. Either HP or Speed. I always pay special attention to both.

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?
    Leech Seed. There isn't another attack like it in the whole game.

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    With the recent Gen V changes, I've become very impressed with all the new Immunity-granting Abilities, like Herbivore and the updated Lightningrod and Storm Drain. I don't know anymore! =s

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?
    Heh, Quick Ball. It's so very convenient! :p

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    Kelpsy Berry, because of its fun name and its blue rhomboid shape.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    Umm... The VS Seeker really does a lot for me.

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?
    I generally find Burn the most useful/effective.

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    Route 201! :D
     
  5. Saga

    Saga Beginning Trainer

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?

    Ground and Dark, can't really choose one over the other. Ice and Fire would be my "close seconds", and Ghost after that. All others types are either "just ok" or disliked altogether.

    2. What's your favorite STAT?

    Speed.

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?

    Spore (if only Parasect wssn't so damn slow...)

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?

    Wonder Guard.

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?

    Kurt's LEVEL BALL. Just wait until you have a Pokémon at level 100, and then start hunting for Pokédex fodder... it blows any Ultra Ball out of the water, and it's pretty much free and unlimited :D

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?

    Lum Berry... ideal for when you can't take out your opponent in one hit, and he takes that opportunity to screw your Pokémon with the little life it has left.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?

    REPEL... any version of it.

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?

    As a victim, probably Poison as it still allows you to fight, and it's easy to heal afterwards (assuming you carry a load of Pecha berries or Antidotes).

    As an inflictor, Freeze is my favorite, although it's uncommon and hard to force it upon, so Sleep is my close second.

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?

    Verdanturf theme song.
     
  6. NimhShambler

    NimhShambler Fighting Type Prof.

    1) Favorite Type: Fighting, followed by Ghost, Bug, and Poison. Never got much of a hold on the latter three, so I specialize in Fighting.

    2) Stat: Attack and Speed. Since I specialise in Fighting Pokemon, I like for them to be able to hit hard and fast. In the words of Gogron from TES IV: Oblivion: "You don't want your enemies running for help, now do you?"

    3) Favorite Attack: Sky Uppercut. Pair it with a Hitmonchan EV'd in Attack with the Iron Fist ability, and whoo buddy. I'm also fond of Brick Break, Hi Jump Kick, and Dark Pulse. I always teach my Medicham "Shadow Ball", too. Good against Ghosts and Psychics.

    4) Special Ability: Iron Fist, Pure Power (how my 'cham does her sweeping), and Effect Spore. You all have no idea how many times my Breloom has been saved by Effect Spore.

    5) Favorite Ball: Dusk Ball, since I normally play at night, Quick ball for those dex fillers, and aestetically: The Dive Ball. I love how it is graduated in colour from dark blue, to light blue to white.

    6) Favorite Berry: A tie between Lum and Sitris. I also like the one that restores 10 pp. I forget what it's called, but I farm them.

    7) Favorite Item: Muscle Band, EXP Share, Macho Brace, and Amulet Coin. I also love getting foodstuff healing items. I feel like I'm spoiling my pokes.

    8)Favorite Stat Ailment: Poison happens the most for me, though I also like Paralyze. It slows my opponent, and has a chance of keeping them from attacking. Though some don't see it as an actual stat ailment, Confusion can be sweet if inflicted on your enemy, and hell if inflicted on you. I'm about 50/50 on love/hate with it.

    9) Favorite Game Music: Lavender Town. I always liked how creepy it sounds on good 'ol Blue/Red, plus the whole LTS Urban Legend. I also like Hearthome's music, and the opening music from R/B (both the Gengar vs Nidoran/Jigglypuff and the title screen where pokemon shift around Red).

  7. Grei

    Grei not the color

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?
    Grass is my favorite. It's not the strongest but it's so cool.
    Just below that, though, is Ground. The earth element is probably the coolest element.

    2. What's your favorite STAT?
    This is tough. I'd have to say Defense. I like a Pokemon with a high HP but a high Defense stat is probably the most appealing to me. Special Defense, too, but to a lesser extent.

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?
    Oh geez... I have too many. I'll list one from each element.

    Bug: Bug Buzz
    Dark: Night Slash (Dark Void and Dark Pulse are up there)
    Dragon: Twister
    Electric: Charge Beam
    Fighting: Close Combat
    Fire: Incinerate
    Flying: Brave Bird
    Ghost: Shadow Claw
    Grass: Seed Bomb (Leaf Storm is up there)
    Ground: Earth Power
    Ice: Aurora Beam
    Normal: Swords Dance
    Poison: Toxic
    Psychic: Psycho Cut
    Rock: Stone Edge
    Steel: Iron Tail
    Water: Shell Blade

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    Hmm... I have to say I really like Overconfidence. Encourage is pretty cool, as is Rock Head.

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?
    Another toughie. The Luxury Ball looks awesome, but so does the Repeat Ball, and the Net Ball's pretty sweet... but I'd go with the first one. Luxury Ball is awesome.

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    ... Sitrus Berry? I don't care for Berries much.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    I really like the VS Seeker's design. PokeNav and C-Gear are equally as cool.

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?
    Probably Burn. Poison's more common but Burn does what Poison does and lowers Attack.

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    This list could get extremely long, so I'll name my top five:

    Jubilife Theme
    New Moon Island/Old Chateau/Spring Path/Sendoff Spring theme
    Full Moon Island/Eterna Forest theme
    N's Farewell
    Battle Subway Battle Theme
     
  8. Neekerisanni123

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?
    Dragon, Bug, Dark, Electric, Ice and Psychic.

    2. What's your favorite STAT?
    Hmm... I guess it's Sp. Attack. :D

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?
    Sacred Fire, Aeroblast, Psychic, Thunder, Blizzard, Earthquake, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Waterfall, Leaf Blade, Crunch, X-Scissor, Fly, Bubble, Shadow Force, Night Shade, ExtremeSpeed, Ice Fang, Poison Jab (Reminds me of Albert Wesker from Resident Evil <3) and Close Combat (somehow, the animation's just hilarious.)

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    Clear Body, Shed Skin, Regeneration (the only gen. V ability I like), Pressure, Tinted Lens, Levitate, Download, Speed Boost and Hyper Cutter.

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?
    Luxury Ball. It's just so pretty! :D

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    Belue Berry looks kinda funky, but Enigma Berry is the best.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    I must admit that I just LOVE Soul Dew. So pretty <3 Life Orb's a close second.

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?
    Burn burn~ >: D

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    Hoo boy. Miror B.'s battle theme, almost all of the legendary battle themes (except Lugia's). almost all of Pokemon Colosseum's music, all of Pokemon Red's music, Gold/Silver/Crystal's Ecruteak & Cianwood City theme. <3 And that's just the beginning... ;)
     
  9. Endless

    Endless Sun God ☉

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?
    Either Ice or Water

    2. What's your favorite STAT?
    I think I have to say Sp Attack. It is so very usefull.

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?
    Sacred Fire

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    That's a hard one. I find Levitate really interesting.

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?
    Quick ball, easy captures all the way.

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    I am not really into berries. I will chose Pecha becausse it looks delicious and I actually use ingame.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    Dha BIKE!

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?
    Probably Paralysis. It is just great to have a slow enemy and he might even miss sometimes.

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    Must be the Wild Battle theme. No matter what generation, I always like them.
     
  10. TehGr81

    TehGr81 College graduate


    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?

    Poison.

    2. What's your favorite STAT?

    Attack and Speed.

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?
    Toxic because it slowly builds up to a devastating KO.

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    Intimidate. It always feels good to send out a Pokemon like Gyarados to lower the opponent's Attack stat. :)

    5. What’s your favorite POKEBALL?

    Poke Ball, because it's the original and most trainers (anime, manga, games) are seen using them.

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    I'm not a berry person.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    VS Seeker. I always love challenging trainers to rematches.

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?

    Poison. I like poisoning my opponents, but absolutely hate being poisoned by them especially because your Pokemon take damage after the battle.

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    The main theme of the whole series itself (Pokemon, I Choose You!), especially when it's implemented into the title theme for the movies.

  11. Eivui

    Eivui Uses of Psychics

    1. What’s your favorite TYPE?
    Psychic. I like the idea of mind-over-matter. Electric is probably a close second, because they are generally good pokemon. I also like Grass, as they always seem friendly.

    2. What's your favorite STAT?
    Probably Sp. Atk. and Sp. Def. I like mental power.

    3. What’s your favorite ATTACK?
    Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, and Psychic. Hard-hitting, reliable moves.

    4. What’s your favorite SPECIAL ABILITY?
    Probably Water Absorb. Helpful without a major drawback.

    Luxury Ball. I like to imagine it's like a paradise inside.

    6. What’s your favorite BERRY?
    Sitrus. I'm not a big fan of berries, but Sitrus are helpful.

    7. What's your favorite ITEM?
    VS. Seeker. Really helpful for a reliable way to get extra EXP.

    8. What's your favorite STATUS AILMENT?F
    or me is Poison, because it isn't as damaging.

    For my foes its Badly Poisoned, because you can just stall them to death (except for E4)

    9. What's your favorite piece of GAME MUSIC?
    Not a big music fan, but the Daybreak Ruins from Guardian Signs has good music, and so does the Pokemon Pinchers battle theme. I also like the bike music from HG and SS.
