    In any case, for me, including Galarian forms, they are as follows, from a character design and lore standpoint:

    10. Hattrem
    9. Eiscue
    8. Cufant
    7. Pincurchin
    6. Snom
    5. Perrserker
    4. Dracovish
    3. Falinks
    2. Darmanitan (Zen Mode)
    1. Cursola

    Honorable Mention: Sobble, Wooloo, Greedent, Sinistea, Appletun

    My top 5 Gigantamax forms, from a character design and lore standpoint:

    5. Gengar
    4. Duraludon
    3. Orbeetle
    2. Alcremie
    1. Centiskorch

  2. Zoruagible

    Zoruagible Lover of underrated characters

    Obstagoon, Yamper, Intelleon, Rillaboom, Flapple, Appletun, Ponyta(Not a fan of Rapidash), Zamazenta, Dragapult, Sirfetch, Centiscorch, Orbeetle, Corviknight, Perrserker, Frosmoth, Toxtricity, Sirfetch, Eternatus.... I love pretty much all the Galarian Pokemon, something I can't say normally for a post-Unova generation!

    Only Pokemon I really didn't like was the abominations against nature, the fossil Pokemon. Cool concept but Car Liss is a bigger monster than Ghetsis!

    Just off the top of my head right now: Alcremie, Dragapult, Appletun, Centiskorch, Cursola, Clobbopus, Orbeetle and Polteageist. I probably misspelled a few but idgaf it's hard to remember so many new names. :p

    Obstagoon, Toxtricity, Mr Rime, and that Graploct guy. They all cool. Falinks is cool, too, and Flapple and Dreepy. Good designs all around.

    This gen has some of my all time favorites! I wasn't interested in anything released before G.Ponyta
    Once I started playing, Centiskorch, Copperajah and Frosmoth immediately became faves.
    Besides Volcarona, I've never been a fan of bug types. But lately they're becoming one of favorite types because of the diversity.
    Quick shout out for araquanid for being my gen 7 fave

    07. Cramorant
    06. Sobble
    05. Grimmsnarl
    04. Grapploct
    03. Appletun

  8. Weavy

    Weavy They call me the one who loves cats.

    In no particular order, my top 10 (Counting all members of a evolution line and no Galar Forms).

    Inteleon (I wasn't a fan at first, but the more I saw, the more I loved it and it quickly shot up to one of my favourites. The G-Max only helped further).
    Flapple/Appletun (It's really hard picking one of the two so they get joint position).
    Drednaw (I'm not too big on Chewtle though).
    Dragapult (Getting sick of Dragon Pseudo legends, but this guy is one of the better ones. I love the concept).

    Honourable mentions: Grimmsnarl, Dubwool, Zacian

    Top 5 Gigantamax (In order, including DLC)

    5. Cinderace (Wasn't a big fan of this one at first, but it grew on me)
    4. Lapras
    3. Alcremie
    2. Duraludon (This one is an improvement over the base form, and I don't say that often)
    1. Inteleon (This one is so funny it's hard NOT to put it in the top spot, at least in my opinion)

    My opinions might change over time, but for the time being, these are a list of my favourites. I'd say Gen 8 has a pretty solid roster overall; there aren't that many I dislike.

    In terms of gameplay I'd say my favourites are Coalossal, Corviknight and Sandaconda. I used all three in my first proper playthrough of Sword and they're all fantastic. I also like the designs and concepts of Copperajah, Frosmoth and Grimmsnarl, but I haven't used any of them yet.

    Cinderace (one of very few fully evolved Fire starters I actually like), Morpeko, Eiscue, Zamazenta, Alcremie and Dragapult are my favourites.

    My favourites of this gen include (In no particular order) :

    - Sobble line (From timid crybaby to badass spy, what's not to like about it?)
    - Grimmsnarl (A creepy but powerful Pokémon who has helped me a lot in Sword)
    - Copperajah (I have a soft spot for elephants and I'm glad that we got another elephant like Pokémon)
    - Toxtricity
    - Dreepy line (Because of it being based on the extinct amphibean Diplocaulus)

    I wasn't that fond of it at first, but now I think it's pretty cool. I like its type combination, and although its design still doesn't look typically Pokemon-ish to me personally, I at least give Game Freak credit for coming up with a rather sinister-looking ogre/oni Pokemon.

    I'm not too fond of many of the gen8 designs but inteleon, toxicirty, and centiskoch these do stand out to me. There are some designs that I really don't like but thankfully they are the minority.

    Unpopular opinion: I think Clobbopus is cuter than Snom & Wooloo.

    I first discovered my Clobbopus in a max raid battle and I immediately fell in love with it due to how cute & tough it acted. It reminds me of a little kid with giant boxing gloves trying to pick fights with everyone. I even gave mine an Eviolite and made sure not to teach it Taunt since I like its design more than Grapploct

    Grimmsnarl looks so awesome and I had no idea that something as silly looking as Impidimp would become something so cool. Hatterene is another one of my favorites.
