Random Pokemon Face-off

poix_the_yak

I stay noided
This works like any other face-off, except it's in groups of five and each 'mon starts with 10 points. Each time you post, add a point to one and subtract a point from another. Post as often as you want as long as you don't double post. The pokemon are chosen randomly by a generator and are in loose categories. Feel free to have side-conversations as long as you are still voting in the same post. Once all but one has been eliminated, that one should have 50 points; if it doesn't, we did something wrong but that doesn't matter at this point. If you're ninja'd, PLEASE FIX YOUR POST.

You can use THIS generator, if anyone is wondering. Sometimes it's necessary to use THIS as well.

Rules update: After round two, try to wait until not one but two people vote between posts. Not manditory, but it might make for a more diverse selection of opinions.
Another update: If the game is really near a close, brainstorm some ideas for new categories!
AND NO RECRUITING PEOPLE TO HELP YOU!! It's ok to remind someone who's already a regular, but new members must come on the own!

Am I seriously the only person on the planet who likes Emboar? But really, I love all these guys. It'll be tough for me to decide who to cut.

It can be fun to experiment with, yes. I do like it, I just prefer the others. (Flygon, Pory-Z and Emboar are awesome and Reuniclus is adorable.)

I refused to use it because it's ugly, ripped off the previoustwo generations of fire types (including blaziken which you should be offended by), and Pignite's cry sounds like a farting noise. (not that that has much to do with emboar, but i do hate pignite more anyway) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1fV-6chXQk

I just realized something, not only does Emboar rip off Blaziken as a fighting/fire type, but it also rips of Blaziken as a fire/fighting type based off of a farm animal that makes delicious breakfast foods.
