I just think Haunter is way cooler than Gengar.

Nice work, it was a great looking piece and fun to read even if I didn't know enough to participate.

I didn't see Snorlax, that's the only other one I know well. Way back when my wee nephew was into this thing, he gave me a small stuffed Snorlax for Christmas, because, like me, it was fat and liked to sleep.   ;D (yeah baby, that's my kind of hero)

I was about to say I think there should be more love for Spoink and Tepig, then I realized those are both Pig Pokemon. I never realized it, but I seem to like the combo of Pig and Pokemon. (Porkemon?)

That is pretty odd.


My list:
Mewtwo (The guy is just awesome. Awesome appearance, awesome backstory, awesome power, and yes, AWESOME MOVIE)
Alakazam
Parasect (The truth behind it is just so deliciously cruel)
Donphan (I was in love with this guy from the moment he rolled up and started tearing around in the first movie)
Kabutops
Cofagrigus (Easily the coolest pokemon from gen 5. LOVE this guy)
Scyther
Steelix
Shedinja (An incredibly clever concept for a pokemon)
Golduck
Haunter
Noctowl
Rayquaza
Tentacruel
Hypno
Sableye (Ridiculously good types)
Mew
Gengar
Mawhile (I didn't used to like it, but learning about the legend behind it made it suddenly one of my favorites)
Gyarados
Hitmonlee
Murkrow
Aradactyl
Dodrio
Cubone

1. Scyther
2. Farfetch'd
3. Lucario
4. Steelix
5. Empoleon
6. Parasect
7. Blastoise
8. Donphan
9. Haunter
10. Chansey
11. Kabutops
12. Rayquaza
13. Shedinja
14. Abra
15. Muk
16.Tentacruel
17. Gengar
18. Sudowoodo
19. Bastiodon
20. Sableye
21. Growlithe
22. Mewtwo
23. Dragonaire
24. Torterra
25. Bonsly


Yeah, Snorlax is pretty awesome, but he got bumped from my list. It's too bad Torterra didn't make it (wasn't even close), because I had an awesome pic for him:



Now no one will ever see it...


Also, I was disappointed by the lack of cool pictures of some of the pokémon at the top. Farfetch'd I can see, but there should have been more for Kabutops and Scyther (eh, Quirk?  :angry:). It was my intention to have more and larger pictures as the list went on so it was epic by the end, which mostly worked, but...yeah.

Anyway, I enjoyed doing this and I'm glad you guys enjoyed reading it.

Yeah, I began work on an epic Scyther painting a couple years ago and never finished. I have great shame.

Well here's mine, just in case anybody cares. I've never played a single Pokemon game in my life. Interesting write ups though...

Paras. For nostalgia's sake. My cousin, who was 12 at the time, gave me a bunch of Pokemon trading cards as a Christmas gift (he had a whole book of them and could rercite stats and abilites from memory). He starts college this year. This was the only one I could find.
Raichu. One of his cards I saw, and remember because I happen to know "Rai" means lightning in Japanese.
Mew-Two. You know, from that movie.
Jiggly-Puff. Thanks to Super Smash Bros Melee (which I only ever played at that same cousin's house)
Wooper. That write up of On the Origin of the Species was quite interesting.
Metapod. Simply because of the whole penis/harden thing.
Pikachu. For obvious reasons.
Mawile
Castform
Charizzard
Squirtle

Meowth

Mmm, now that's a good set to end on. The best Ghost Pokemon and the original, true legendary powerhouse.

Haunter actually come very close to being my number 1. I just think there's something really wicked about his general apperance and style, something that I just can't get enough of. I'll let this picture I commissioned a while back sum him up:



1. Bulbasaur
2. Haunter
3. Venusaur
4. Pidgeot

5. Dragonite
6. Mew
7. Squirtle
8. Butterfree

9. Magneton
10. Blastoise
11. Exeggcute
12. Kabutops
13. Ditto

14. Lapras
15. Magikarp
16. Meganium
17. Mewtwo
18. Articuno
19. Steelix

20. Lugia
21. Noctowl
22. Xatu
23. Piplup
24. Luxio
25. Mudkip

Rather surprised at the lack of Dragonite and Lapras, those should have been core members of upper-tier teams by the end of your playthroughs. And Magneton is more a personal choice, since I started to really rely on that guy after a while (keep him away from water and ground and he will serve you well). And at least Piplup's later evolutionary forms made it.

I actually can't think of any dragons I really used, ever. I suppose Altaria, but I think that's it. It's a shame, because I REALLY like Dragonair. Not Dragonite so much, but Dragonair was the original beauty queen Pokemon.
