Pokémon you like which you feel are very often forgotten.

    I think Ghetsis using one means Hydreigon is saved from total forgetfulness by the fandom, but he still hasn’t really appeared in anything major since Gen 5.

    I mostly blame Ash for not letting his Pikachu evolve into Raichu after his fight with Lt. Surge for this one. At least now in Gen 7, it gets a little more love with an Alolan form, and Hau using one.

    Entei and Suicune had two movies and many appearances in the anime (Suicune being the mascot of Crystal), whereas Raikou was pushed aside in a side-story that wasn’t seen everywhere. Raikou is easily the least-loved member of the legendary Johto beasts.

    I don’t really consider Mimikyu a Pika-clone since it’s just a black blob of darkness that dresses itself up as Pikachu, and it could theoretically dress up as any other Pokemon (as I’ve seen in some fan art).

    It's not a clone, not even a little.

    It really sucks that the hate is all those three are known for. I actually think Trubbish and Vanillite are really cute, and that their lines do have interesting concepts. The Klink line on the other hand, heavily roasted as the "laziest" Pokemon design to date, being just a "gear with faces that only adds more gears". Even the line's Japanese names clearly just say "Gear", that add to it with each evolution.

    The Porygon evolutionary family, for obvious reasons.

    They've tried to pretend them and Jynx don't exist

    Because GF and Nintendo be like “Porygon is the summoner of the seizures of death. Please avoid it when you can”.

    Porygon because of… what Pokemon Power said, and Jynx for allegedly being a racist stereotype (when it’s actually based on ganguro, a style in Japan of putting on fake tan and bright makeup).

    The Unown are very much underutilized in both the games and anime. I know that they are virtually useless outside of the first two Johto Gyms but GF really should give them some buffs and love. Let them at least learn Secret Power, Cosmic Power, And Stored Power. Those moves would fit the Power theme of Unown. And I’ve never seen anyone talk about the Gothita line that much despite being very similar to the Ralts family. Gothitelle has a very interesting design and lore around it. And quite honestly I’m really surprised that Olympia didn’t even own or use one in both the games and anime. Gothitelle supposedly has connections to the stars which are important to astrology and fortune telling which is clearly Olympia’s theme. It was such a missed opportunity and it isn’t like the Gothita line wasn’t in the Kalos Dex.

    The Gothita line actually did exist in the Kalos Dex. The only reason Gothitelle was known for lately was being a Shadow Tag abuser.

    I acknowledged it being in the Kalos Dex. I said it was not like it wasn’t in it.

    Granted, it was a large Dex, so it was easy to forget what's even there to begin with.

    Heatran is also a neglected Pokémon at least in the anime. It has a cool concept and typing yet it is rarely talked about. Plus the fact that it is the only Legendary to be able to either gender is very interesting. I keep wondering why that is since there’s no official explanation for it.

    Probably cause Heatran looks like it's made of baked beans.

    Jynx, because of the stereotype and sex appeal. With its busty figure/big boobs.

    I definitely get a sex appeal vibe from it.

    I used Maractus, Sawk, Zebstrika, Unfezant, Darmanitan, and Stoutland in my Black playthrough.

    So y'know most of them. And honestly most gen 5 pokemon in general .
