    Never saw the appeal of Dragonite. I might just dislike the fact that Dragonair, a pretty cool looking blue serpent, out of nowhere turns into this goofy, rotund, tan dragon. I can understand Gyarados, because it has a backstory to it, but Dragonite eludes me.

    I suppose I can't complain about silly looking Pokemon though, my favorite steel type is Gigiggear.

    @SasakiThePikachu and Raiga, I think there is misunderstandment between u two.i understood what both of u where saying the whole time. SasakiThePikachu is trying to bring humor here, and Raiga is trying to stop/prevent stupid/immature posts. but i think the fight between u 2 is just about over now. this thread is about the APPEAL of pokemon, not the origin/meaning of the pokemon. Or even about the use in battle. the origin/meaning/battle use has nothing to do with the APPEAL of the pokemon, as in the look/style of a pokemon. I'm not taking sides. I'm not mad at any1, I'm just posting what I am noticing and trying to help.

    Edit-P.S now back to the topic of the thread!
     
  4. Anyone know any "No Experience" codes for Pokemon Yellow?

    I'm about to start an LP of Pokemon Yellow, with a code on that prevents any of my Pokemon from gaining experience. Can someone please help me?

    I could say it for a lot of the newer evolutions in Generation 4 such as Electabuzz, Magmortar, Probopass and Magnezone... I mean, I know it made a lot of our older pokemon stronger, but I just don't understand how they are appealing... well, appearance-wise. Call me a Gen 1 junkie but most of the time, I just prefer the simpler designs of pokemon like growlithe and meowth rather some of those super-detailed evolutions. x3

    Sometimes there isn't enough design in the old Pokemon; Electrode? A sphere with a face? Dugtrio evolving from something that looks exactly the same just now there are three of them? By the way, I think you mean Electivire, not Electabuzz.
    I agree about Magmortar and Probopass. Ugly, and they didn't make Magmortar's "gun" look decent like they did with Blastoise.

    Well, I was already under the inclination our thing was already done with. However no, I'm not here to "stop immature posts" or anything like that. They made a post, and I disagreed with it in an over the top manner, and they took offense, simple as that.

    Anyways, since people I discuss with in this thread always mention me not posting my opinion in the thread, here's mine.

    And it's not a pokemon, because my opinion is simply that, I really have no problem understanding the appeal of any pokemon(up to 4th gen, I haven't seen 5th yet).

    To start off with, I don't see much point in mentioning unknown pokemon. It gets on my nerves when someone mentions something like granbull, because yeah thats fantastic, but who on earth acted like granbull was a very appealing pokemon.

    And on the opposite end of the spectrum, the really popular pokemon like the kanto starters, pikachu, mew, mewtwo, dragonite, garchomp, and arceus, I've never had any problem in not understanding. So thats my opinion for those who care.

    Thing is though, none of the evos are really any more detailed than their previous ones. Magmortar/electivire have about equal amount of details compared to their pre-evos, and many like gallade and magnazone are the same. If you ask me personally, I'd say there's no doubt in my mind 90% of those evos were made during their pre-evo's respective region, and just showed up in fourth gen.

    Well, i think that the most ugliest are all time powerful like Gyrados, and the cute ones stink like Wigglyfat.

    Alright....but what does that have to do with not understanding the appeal of it? It seems to me you're just listing off their qualities.
     
  10. Smeargle, everyone seems to use it, I understand it can basically learn any move but I just never understood the appeal in the competitive scene.

I would be the best, with my best Pokemon Shadowsyth by my side, only i would train him from the day he hatched from his egg and being one of the rare shinnies he is, he would be the most powerful Pokemon of his type and species. Along with him i would train up all my Pokemon to be the strongest

    ;149;Dragonite- my favorite dragon
    ;405;Luxray- he is just awsome looking and now with night slash

    Lepardas- Shadowsyth's mate ;)

    Lugia and Charizard were two of my most favourite pokemon ever. I still love them. Particularly because those two were one of the earliest pokemon i knew along with Pikachu and Togepi.

    But Lugia and Charizard are incredibly overrated. Is it because they're nostalgic and people like them for the same reason i do? Cos i never figured out why they were so immensely popular.

    Klink and it's evos - This has got to one of the worst designs for a character in video game history.

    Wait a minute! There's a thread for this topic in Poke Polls already, and it's a sticky. It's the "If You Could Be..." thread or something similar.

    Well, charizard is pretty easy, it was simply the easiest, and most typical for that matter, to obtain pokemon that was badass. Multiply that with ash's story with charmander influencing kids to use him, and him having the rarest card(price-wise) in all of the tcg, and you have yourself the biggest player in pokemon next to pikachu.

    Lugia had pretty much the last popular pokemon movie in theatres, and was simply a cool looking legendary that was the focus of one of the two metal games. Frankly, I think its crazy to put lugia, or anything after first generation up there in popularity with charizard, but I assume those would be the main reason it was as popular as it was.
