Pokemon Five-Man-Band

Discussion in 'Poképolls' started by Smugleaf&Mudkip, Nov 6, 2011.

    Smugleaf&Mudkip Heart Tamer

    The Five-Man-Band is a trope associated with a group of five characters who compliment each other. Here are their roles:

    •The Hero — Group's leader
    •The Lancer — second-in-command, contrasts with hero
    •The Smart Guy — Physically weak, mentally strong. Clever and usually witty.
    •The Big Guy — Jock. Strong, but may be dumb or unwilling to speak
    •The Chick — peacekeeper or amazonian-style woman

    The question is, if the group was made of Pokemon, who would fill each role?

    There'll be lots of different combinations, so list as many as you want!

    The Lancer — ;302; Sableye
    The Smart Guy — ;292; Shedinja
    The Big Guy — ;477; Dusknoir
    The Chick — ;478; Froslass

    And now for the Earthbound method:

    Ness - ;355; Duskull
    Paula - :562: Yamask
    Jeff - ;479; Rotom
    Poo - ;442; Spiritomb

    The Hero: Molly the Meganium (boisterous and friendly)
    The Lancer: Embrie the Reuniclus (goofy but still strong)
    The Big Guy: Don the Scrafty (loves fighting, 'tough guy')
    The Smart Guy: Jojo the Togekiss (calm, only sane one)
    The Chick: Halley the Jirachi (very cheerful and kind)

    And finally...

    The Sixth Ranger: Persephone the Hydreigon (very tough, but very quirky)

    That would be my ultimate team, anyway. =D

  17. Abraace

    Abraace Sabrina's apprentice

    Depends on what we're referring to. For my personal comic plans, I stuck with the five man band theme which would have gone something like this for the main guy's team;

    Hero: Abra
    Lancer: Nuzleaf
    Smart Guy: Wobbuffet
    Big Guy: Machop
    Chick: Smoochum

    These are very much arguable though;

    Water Starters:
    Hero: Samurott
    Lancer: Blastoise
    Smart Guy: Empoleon
    Big Guy: Feraligatr
    Chick: Swampert

    Grass starters:
    Hero: Sceptile
    Lancer: Venusaur
    Smart Guy: Serperior
    Big Guy: Torterra
    Chick: Meganium

    •The Big Guy — ;409; Rampardos(Thick Skull=Poor brain power. Very strong)
    •The Chick — :549: Lilligant(Flower's aroma has a relaxing scent to it. Always female. )

    TVTropes related thread? Fine by me. I got plenty of these really.

    Grass Starters:
    Hero- Serperior, based off of royalty, so this just seems to fit him.
    Lancer- Venusaur, only one I couldn't fit elsewhere.
    Smart Guy- Sceptile, highest special attack.
    Big Guy- Torterra, he's the biggest and heaviest.
    Chick- Meganium, no doubt.

    Water Starters:

    Hero: Samurott, he's a freaking shogun of the sea.
    Lancer: Blastoise, he's just plain awesoem, and as everyone knows, teh lancer is the coolest person on the team.
    Smart Guy: Empoleon,
    Big Guy: Croconaw, he just looks big and ferocious.
    Chick: Swampert, doesn't fit anywhere else. These don't always fit.

    Fire Starters:

    Hero: Blaziken, definitely the most heroic.
    Lancer: Charizard, do I have to say why?
    Smart Guy: Typhlosion, I guees he could be here.
    Big Guy: Emboar, he looks bulky.
    Chick: Infernape, blame Random Doom by BehindTG on deviant Art for this. Although, calling Veruka a chick would probably get someone hurt.
