    Mega Altaria The best Mega Evolution

    My favourites would be Rowlet, Decidueye, Primarina, Ribombee, Lycanroc, Toxapex, Salazzle, Bounsweet, Tsareena, Comfey, Silvally, Mimikyu, Kommo-o, Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Cosmog, Pheromosa, Marshadow, Poipole and Naganadel. Some of them I like because they look quite cute with their Fairy typing, cool Dragon types, Tapus being OP, and for some others I just like them because I fell attached to them by using them in-game.

    Decidueye: an archer owl - what's not to love?
    Lycanroc (Midday) - very cool canine pokemon.
    Primarina - a singing seal-mermaid hybrid. Lots of fun
    Tsareena - we've had plenty of woman-plant hybrid pokemon, but this one can and will kick your teeth out.
    Vikavolt - an electric/bug beetle with hedgecutter blades for horns.

    Decidueye - it's a Grass/Ghost archer.
    Incineroar - good typing and his design grew on me.
    Mudsdale - I really like horses.
    Kommo-o - cool design and typing, shame it was available so late in the game.
    Golisopod - weak-looking bug turning into something ferocious was a nice surprise.
    Araquanid - it has an interesting design.

    Mudbray/Mudsdale - I was so happy to see a donkey pokemon, I adore donkeys. I love Mudbrays eyes, and it's bangs/forlock. Just everything about it! And then Mudsdale showed up, a draft horse pokemon! Be still my heart! I love drafties, and this guy is such a gorgeous and tough guy, but you just know it's a gentle giant.

    Rockruff/Midday Lycanroc - I love a puppy and wolf pokemon, and Lycanroc is just such a perfect looking wolfie. And Rockruff is just too cute!

    Oricorio - I love Pom Pom and Sensu, they're so cute and fun!

    Stufful - I love this lil one, with the tag on the bum, it's perfect, and makes the sweetest sound!

    Morlull/ Shiinoctic - These guys are also so very cute, I love the ethereal mushroom theme!

    Mimikyu - This is kind of a weird one, I don't like Pikachu so much but I love this guy, it's story is so sad and dark!

    Popplio line - I didn't think I'd like this starter at first, but now I love it! Brionne and Primarina are just so ultra girl and pretty, which you don't see very often in starters.

    Alolan Vulpix/Ninetales - Honestly these ones are my top Pokemon, I loved Vulpix/Ninetales in gen 1 and love them even more now in gen 8! So very lovely and ethereal.

    Rowlet/Dartrix/Decidueye - I think Rowlet is adorable because of its roundness and simple design. Plus its personality in the show made me adore it even more. Decidueye has a sleek design and concept behind it. An archer owl, who else could come up with that?

    Rockruff/Lycanroc - Rockruff being a dog is perfect since they're companions to humans. For years I've wanted a Pokemon based off a wolf and Lycanroc was the perfect answer to that. I think both day and midnight have great designs while dusk form is a weird combo.

    That's honestly hard to say, but I can try to limit it to favorite per category
    * Starter Pokemon: The Rowlet line. Its spookiness in the final form, the adorable Rowlet, the theme of being an archer. It all appeals to me
    * Pokemon that can evolve: Mudbray line. The Stamina ability was incredibly useful, its weight makes good use of the Heavy Slam move and it served as a powerhouse for me.
    * Pokemon that don't evolve: I honestly don't know what to pick. Single-form Pokemon in this generation are often justified in not needing to evolve. Mimikyu's awesome ability and practically meta gimmick, Minior's adorable design, rainbow theme and ability reminding me of the even cooler Aegislash, or Dhelmise the closest any Pokemon gets to three types. Can't choose which
    * Regional variant: The Alolan Muk line. It immediately appealed to me, and it makes the old design much more interesting. The type combination is very useful.
    * Ultra Beast: Guzzlord. I love how monstrous the thing is, it sells the Beast part of the Ultra Beast. And its overall cool in my opinion
    * Legendary/Mythical: Gotta have to pick Nebby the Cosmog. Unoriginal, but they make it work in the story and I like the idea of a Magikarp-esque legendary
     
  9. Erron Black

    Erron Black The Pretender

    Top 10 would be:
    1. Komala
    2. Bewear
    3. Lycanroc
    4. Naganadel
    5. Primarina
    6. Ribombee
    7. Decidueye
    8. Golisopod
    9. Araquanid
    10. Silvally
    Honorable mentions: Crabominable, Drampa, Palossand, Mimikyu, Toucannon, Marshadow, Tapu Lele, Lurantis, and Lunala

    Hard to pick just one, but my top three would be:

    [​IMG] Ribombee
    [​IMG] Primarina
    [​IMG] Palossand

    I used these three on my Sun team and grew to really like them. I like their typings (really like the Fairy type and the Ghost/Ground combo), their designs (Ribombee & Primarina are pretty, I like Palossand's sandcastle concept), and how they performed in battle during my Sun playthrough (their STAB moves in particular were very useful).

    Ribombee: I love how they merged Fairy and Bug into a cute little bumblebee-ish Pokémon. Lovely color scheme, cool scarf and overall a brilliant design. Stat wise I love her high Speed and she actually has quite some interesting roles such as Support, Set-Up Sweeper or just a plain old Specs Sweeper. Wish she had a more interesting ability tho.

    Can I first just say I really enjoy what this generation brought to the table in terms of new Pokemon? It was hard to narrow down my favorites because there are so many solid designs.

    For new Pokemon in Alola, my favorites would have to be Dhelmise, Wishiwashi, Mimikyu, and Type: Null. All of them have really neat backstories that tie into their designs which I really enjoy. Other standouts include Rowlet, Decidueye, Tsareena, Turtonator, Salandit, Salazzle, and Passimian.

    I'm still not sure about Ultra Beasts; I felt like they could have been neat non-Pokemon bosses like Pokestar Studios and contributed more to the story in that way, but I'm definitely not complaining about having them on my team. Pheromosa, Celesteela and Nihilego are probably my favorites in that regard, with a special shout-out to Guzzlord mainly because of how delightfully creepy Ultra Ruin is. And Stakataka because I would use it for shelter.

    Regional variants definitely deserve a shout-out. Part of me wishes they did more of them, but part of me is a bit frustrated with some of the ones we got (Geodude, Diglett). When they were more successful, though, they turned out to be some of my favorites of the gen. Alolan Vulpix/Ninetales, Marowak, Grimer/Muk, and Meowth/Persian are examples of the concept done right to me (even though I thought Alola Persian could have looked so much cooler). Sandshrew/Sandslash/Rattata/Raticate get a shout-out for great designs even though their typing leaves much to be desired.
     
  13. Weavy

    Weavy Usually silent

    I can't decided on an absolute favourite right now, but it's a very close toss up between the Litten line and Celesteela.

    I am a cat lover; anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with cats. So when I found out the Fire starter was going to be a cat, I pretty much fell in love with it instantly. I just love how adorable Litten and Torracat are. Even Incineroar has a ton of personality that makes it cool.

    Celesteela on the other hand was one of those Pokémon that I wasn't too fond of at first, but the more I found out about it, the more I loved about it and it quickly became one of my favourites. I adore the connection it has to Japanese folklore; many of its aspects are spot on such as the bamboo and woman-like appearance. It's by far my favourite Ultra Beast for sure.
     
  14. Archangel Azazel

    Archangel Azazel Fallen Angel

    Got quite a few favorites and I used most on my team in Moon.

    They were:
    Rowlet, Decidueye: Design wise of course. Rowlet was too cute to pass up and Decidueye just looks like cool Pokemon. Doesn't help that I almost always pick the grass starters.
    Cutiefly line: Too cute. So tiny yet so strong.
    Wimpod line: I like how shy looking it is, yet when it evolves it looks like it can take on anything.
    Grubbin line: I actually liked Charjabug more than its pre evo and last evo. A cute little electric bus.
    Lycanroc: I love it's design.
    Fomantis line: I love both their desings. Fomatis was too adorable to pass up. and Lurantis just gave a personality of power yet keeping its cool.

    The rest I like because of their design. It's always the design! Like Lunala, Silvally, Primarina, Stufful, Litten, Tsareena, Marshadow, and Cosmog.

    KyogreThunder Call of Fate

    Vikavolt-it looks cool and has a great Special Attack, shame it is so slow.
    Primarina-it is just very pretty and hits hard.
    Decidueye-love its concept.
    Salazzle-she is quite fast and has an unique typing and looks sly.
    Midday Lycanroc-sleek and quick, Accelerock is a cool signature attack, too.
    Silvally-awesome design, backstory and movepool. The memories should definitely boost the power of attacks of their respective types, similiarly to Plates, though.
    Other Generation VII critters I like are: Oricorio (Sensu Style), Kommo-o, Mudsdale, Wishiwashi, Tsareena, Mimikyu, Zeraora, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Nihilego.

    My name's Sylvain. They introduced Silvally. Felt connected on a personnal level to this new 'mon. Look, concept, and story are totally badass as well, so it went straight up in my top-ever-favourite list.
    Don't care if people are raving about eviolite Null, I will bring a Silvally on any team from now on :)

    Honorable mention to Mudsdale, a.k.a. the Heavy Slam destroyer pony.

    For me it's Silvady (Silvally). I didn't like its pre-evolved form at all, yet Silvady without the mask it once had looks fierce and majestic even. I also quite like Nyabby (Litten).

    Yarghows Ethereal Stone

    I have a few favourites and those are: Decidueye, Vikavolt, Toxapex, Tsareena, Passimian and Komala. As for Alolan versions, the one I like the most is Sandshrew/Sandslash.

    Decidueye: great colour scheme and fantastic battle-animation.
    Vikavolt: extremely unique-looking Bug Type with a pretty nice Special Attack.
    Toxapex: a perfect combination of menace and beauty.
    Tsareena: charming Grass Type with an elegant colour scheme.
    Passimian: ornamental and unique Fighting Type.
    Komala: really cute and with a remarkable ability.
    Alolan Sandshrew/Sandslash: already a big fan of the regular ones, I remained fascinated to see them in a glacial version.
