    An old favorite pokemon of Black/White I don't see anyone using for online battles is the Scraggy species.

    I kind of like Zuruzukin (Scrafty) for its weirdness, but I never understood why it was half Fighting-type, unless it was a vague reference to its hooligan theme?

    I had a similar experience with Ferrothorn. I didn't really care for it at first, but I decided to try it on White 2 and it ended up being a great addition to my team. Ferrothorn's typing, Ability, high defenses, and movepool (loved how it had access to things like Leech Seed and Stealth Rock) were very useful.

    Since I've replaying Pokemon Black I've became quite fond of my Audino who is good support as well as Sawbuck who has basically become my sweeper.

    Not even just among the fifth generation Pokémon, but Sewaddle's evolution line is among my favorite Pokémon ever. Very closely tied with Lotad's as my all-time favorite. Something about it as Sewaddle is so adorable, and the fact that Swadloon is just bigger and angrier looking makes me laugh. I love that it requires friendship to evolve because it fits with Leavanny's design and behavior so well. It's a little creepy that it becomes a standing bug-looking thing, but I can do with creepy.

    Yes!!! The only thing I dislike about Leavanny is that it's super weak to fire being both grass- and bug-type, but the same goes for Ferrothorn and I love that Pokémon a ton as well.
  8. Mienfoo because Korrina has one, I also really like the mascots Zekrom and Reshiram, they look really cool!

    Okay so Unova easily has my favourite selection of Pokémon to choose from, and I could talk about all of my favourites for hours. I want to keep this short and sweet so have my favourite of the bunch.

    Reshiram is the physical embodiment of the truth, and immediately this is appealing to me as a mathematician. It’s not a box legendary based on some physical or universal concept. Instead, it is based on a human one, and this really works in Reshiram’s favour as it makes it a bit unique, and Zekrom does a similar thing. What I love about Reshiram is that it really sells “truth” to you. White as snow, fire type perhaps being symbolic of fire being the gift of knowledge Prometheus gave to man, and its elegant, bird-like design. It’s very effective.

    The dynamic it has with Zekrom is also awesome, and fighting N box legend on box legend is the most epic battle in the entire series.

    Reshiram was my favorite of the two mascot dragons in the beginning, but my opinion changed once we saw the Kyurem fusion version of Reshiram. I simply preferred Zekrom after seeing that.

    PokeMon2.0 Cramorant is too cute for words!

    I like the Samurott and Emboar lines, the Unfezant, Swanna, Braviary and Mandibuzz lines, Lillipup and it’s evolutions, and the Pans/Simis. I chose Pansear since I have Oshawott as my starter. Can’t wait for Simisear!

    One thing that I loved about BW was how it introduced so many new Pokemon without including older ones. It felt like a brand new adventure since you had to learn about their moves and typing.

    Looking back on all the Pokemon introduced in Generation 5 I'd say my favorites are:
    • Oshawott/Dewott/Samurott
    • Drilbur/Excadrill
    • Sandile/Krokorok/Krookodile
    • Zorua/Zoroark
    • Tirtouga/Carracosta
    • Deerling/Sawsbuck
    • Emolga
    • Joltik/Galvantula
    • Rufflet/Braviary
    • Zekrom

    shoz999 Sonic's the name! Speed's my game!

    Ooh. That is a very very tough question. There are so MANY good Pokemon in Gen V, both design and lore-wise and competitively. In fact I'd say Gen V is the best quality and quantity generation.

    I'd have to choose Golurk, the ghost in the machine Pokemon that flies like a rocket. Competitively, he's actually pretty good on the right team.

    Your talking about his evolution Scrafty? I've seen him used online quite a lot. In fact before Incineroar took his spot, Scrafty was the annoying intimidate flincher.

    I like Swanna, but not its pre-evolved form. And even as much as I appreciate Swanna for its elegant design, I find its typing to be really bad due to its quadruple weakness to Electric attacks.

    Eryzol LEGEND

    Serperior (coolest starter)
    Kyurem (amazing location and battle)
    Hydreigon (my favourite design from that generation)
    Krokodile (Outrage is the best move for gen 4 and 5 and a cool looking pokemon)
    Volcarona (amazing location and an extremely strong pokemon)
