    While not on the same level as Gen 7, I found most of Gen 8’s roster to be worth the wait. Only one I dislike is Greedent.

    Dubwool, Cinderace, Toxtricity, Corviknight, Dragapault, Grimmsnarl, Obstagoon, Intelleon, Rillaboom, & Centiskorch are my favorites. These are in no particular order though I’d say Cinderace or Grimmsnarl (and their respective lines) are my favorite Gen 8 Pokémon.

    Sarunori (Grookey) is my favorite Gen VIII Pokemon at the moment, and I'm saving some money so that I can buy some of its merchandise. I also really like Wanpachi (Yamper) now even though I was neutral about it when it was first revealed. I'm still not used to all the new Gen VIII Pokemon, so I might add a few more of my favorites later on.

    This generation had some cool designs! There are loads of cool Pokemon to use, to the extent that I'm struggling to decide what ones to try out next in Shield, but this is my top 10 narrowed down I think. Galar did Psychic, Bug and Electric types proud, don't think any of the new Pokemon with those types look bad at all! I don't think any Pokemon has a design I really dislike, except maybe Eiscue and Stonjourner.

    Kingudora My favourite

    My overall favorite from this gen is Centiskorch. It is stellar in almost every regard, from design to stats to movepool.

    Other favorites from Galar are: Corviknight, Flapple, Sandaconda, Grapploct, Hatterene, Obstagoon, Cursola, Sirfetch'd, Runerigus and Dracozolt.

    I also love the designs of the whole Dreepy family, they are such lovely goofballs!

    Appletun, Sirfetch'd, Pincurchin (sp?), and Hatterene. I also have to give a shout out to Cinderace. I loved Raboot's design and was not planning on evolving mine, but I eventually caved for the sake of being competitive and Cinderace really grew on me. Not top three as far as starters go, but definitely up there. He seems like he'd be fun to actually be on an adventure with.

    8. Rillaboom (Unexpected but I love it's theme and design!)
    7. Cramorant (This dopey bird is hilarious and first time I saw it with a Pikachu was literally a ROFL moment!)

    I think the Dreepy family is like the Goomy family of Gen 8. They're little cute goofy dragons. :D
