I know this has been done before, but I was thinking of making topics and polls of my own on which starter is your favorite based on each form. Now remember, each of you will obviously have opinions on this and I will have mine as well.

So this topic is which of the Sinnoh Starters do you like based on their middle stage only? Mine is Monferno.


The Meme Supreme

The Sinnoh middle stages are pretty decent in my eyes, but nostalgia will play a part in anything relating to this region for me so bear that in mind. Monferno is my favourite because of the anime - Ash's Chimchar evolving into Monferno and beating up Paul's Electabuzz was a great battle despite it losing, and I just like how slender and nimble it looks! Plus I have fond memories of my Chimchar evolving in Pearl before Roark and learning Mach Punch, like that was just so cool! Prinplup and Grotle also look really cool - Prinplup is a close second because I do like how proud it seems and the colours are so good? Grotle is last because it's not that exciting, but I do still like it.

I love Grotle and it was one of my first Pokemon ready for Pokemon GO PvP back when that became a thing. It saved me so many times in Great League against water types like Azumarill and Swampert and those two were on almost every team back then. I also really like the design.


Moukazaru (Monferno) is quite appealing to me out of the three options. I think I prefer it over its base stage and final stage as a matter of fact.

Gonna have to vote for Monferno. Like others said none of the 3 middle stages are that great looking but at least Monferno has a coolness factor lol. :]


As the journey continues
I love all 3 but Monferno is definitely my favorite mainly due to the anime but also memories of using my own when first playing Diamond


I think it's a huge tie between Moferono but I've used Piplup in most of my run throughs so Prinplup has kinda grown on me

I like Monferno best and honestly think it looks pretty good. Prinplup's decent but poor Grotle doesn't look too great in this stage, unfortunately.
