Favourite Regional Variants

Discussion in 'Pokémon - Generation VII Discussion' started by KyogreThunder, Apr 19, 2018.

    Generation VII introduced the concept of regional variants, which are known as Alolan Forms in the Alola region. Did you like the idea? Which Alolan Forms appealed to you the most? Please remember not to spam and explain your choice(s) a bit.

    My favourites would be Alolan Vulpix and Ninetales because they're so cute and elegant. I also like the idea of an ice Vulpix and Ninetales as well also I like Alolan Ninetales's Fairy typing.

    Gotta go with Vulpix and Ninetales as well. Always loved them and their Alolan forms were both beautiful and fun to use.

    I like Vulpix and Ninetales for their coloration which suits them quite nicely, Marowak for how creative GF was with its design particularly with lighting the bone weapon on fire, Sandshrew and Sandslash for their unique type combo and coloration, And Raichu for how it uses its own tail to move around.

    I like Alolan Marowak the most: I feel it was the most creative one. I also like Alolan Golem (Used one on my team plus I like the design and typing), Ninetales (looks really nice) and Sandslash (unique type comibination).

    Regional variants are one of the few things I enjoyed about Generation 7. It gave Pokemon I've never used before a second chance.

    A. Raichu - I never really had an interest in the original design of Raichu. This regional variant was more appealing and the surfer design fit the Hawaiian theme.

    A. Marowak
    - Definitely the most interesting design out of them all. Being Fire/Ghost is quite the departure from its original typing.

    A. Sandshrew/Sandslash
    - Great design and type combination for both of them.

    Alolan Marowak, Sandshrew/Sandslash, Raichu, Golem, and Vulpix/Ninetales are among my favorites. Diglett/Dugtrio are beyond disappointing. Exeggutor is just derpy and I can't bring myself to like it. Meowth looks nice but dear god is Persian just... ugly. Rattata/Raticate are just meh overall. I like Grimer/Muk, but I feel like it was a missed opportunity for a Poison/Ground pile of quicksand.

    Was really hoping we'd get a Water Snake variation for Ekans/Arbok and a Manatee variation for Seel/Dewgong, but I'll take what we got.

    I think my favourites would have to be:

    [​IMG] Raichu
    [​IMG] Ninetales

    I like their type combinations, but what I like most about them is their designs - Raichu is adorable, Ninetales looks beautiful with the icy blue colouring.

    I would have to go with Ninetales. The Alola form makes Ninetales everything that it was meant to be. It makes a great addition to any in game team with the unique movepool it has. The ice/fairy typing is unique to just it. As far as competitive battling it has access to Snow Warning and Aurora Veil. Fastest weather setter. And as an added bonus the updated design is absolutely perfect.

    I was hoping for an aquatic Ekans and Arbok as well. I would have also loved to have seen a tropical Bellossom, Shuckle inside a coconut, Octillery turning a brighter orange with blue highlights and becoming part Poison to be similar to the blue ringed octopus, a Tropius with hibiscus flowers growing from the side of its head and much larger neck fruit, and a Chatot that looked similar to a macaw parrot. All missed opportunities if you ask me.

    Although I've never used them, my favorite variants are Alolan Vulpix line and Alolan Raichu, They are just so cute and cool design wise. I would love to get a shiny Alolan Raichu as he looks like chocolate.

    Ninetales, its design is just gorgeous and I like its typing and Snow Warning. Sandslash, Marowak and Raichu are good, too. I only really dislike Persian, Raticate and Dugtrio, though.

    I would probably say Alolan Raichu, I really like the Electric/Psychic type combo. I also like Alolan Dugtrio, Alolan Muk(it's got some cool colors.), Alolan Ninetales, Alolan Marowak, and Alolan Ninetales.

    I'd say that the only Alolan variant that I truly find appealing is Alolan Rokon (Vulpix). This is mostly due to me liking foxes, and Alolan Rokon reminds me of an Arctic fox.
