What's your signature pokemon? Pic related this mother fucker has been a complete bro for me.
Saves me ass all the fuckin' time.
Swampert's been my bro since Sapphire.
You can fucking bet my Secret Base gym is going to be Ground Type with Mega Swampert at the helm
Volcarona. I can't not have it on my team. same goes for Kecleon.
Every. Single. Game.
I use her so much, I could fill half a box with them from various playthroughs or competitive builds, each nicknamed after something or someone I love dearly.
Have two Shiny ones too.
I love her so much because of the day I discovered her;
>Be 10 or something
>Love Eevee and Vapoureon
>Get Eevee from Bill
>Take it to the salon every day
>Train it while looking everywhere for a Water Stone
>Obviously, can't find Water Stone
>After taking it to the Salon one last time, I head to box it
>Have lunch with my Pokémon
(This was a cute thing I did when I ate lunch. I'd give my Pokémon Berries and Lemonade and stuff so they could eat with me)
>Give Eevee a Rare Candy before I box it
>EEVEE is Evolving!
>"Shit...aky Mushrooms, it's evolving!"
>qt pink psychic cat
>Carries me through the rest of the game
Used it on every team since except Sapphire because FUCK the Hoenn Regional Dex. That feeling of discovery was so good. I love it.
Not to mention, it's actually competitively viable. I used it even before Magic Bounce, but with it? Unf~, best Pokémon ever!
Good old electivire because hey nothing says kick your ass like a good old spark plug
Always been on my team, even before the mega evolution.
I'm generally pretty flexible, but definitely my favorite.
this guy right here. I've put him on just about every competitive team I've made.
His mega form is also criminally underrated. I use it on a baton pass team and with +2 speed/+2 attack boost under sandstorm he 6-0's teams with sand force boosted earthquakes and stone edges coming off his ungodly base 170 attack stat.
Love this guy right here
is that you sean?
also, pic related. my initial favorite was greninja, but then this guy walked into my game.
it always saved my ass in some way, shape, or form i don't know how but it do
Since Gen III been using this guy, pretty much the core of my in game teams. Only Psychic type I really liked, and the addition of Fairy type makes it more bulky and adaptable, plus dat Mega. And yes, I usually use a male, because why not?
God-tier tastes, my niggers.
mummify all things.
Also, 145 base def with wisp+pain split.
>making pokemon traps
>never had sex
>never even held hands with a gril
whatever you say m8
ah yeah cause its totally not creepy to hold something towards your weirdo fetish fantasy
I never said anything about a fetish fantasy, I said I liked a Pokemon because its useful and one of the best Psychic types in the game, and now with the Fairy typing its even better. You're reading too much into a game, mate.
The status orbs are some of my favorite items because they actually give
hera chance to be pretty good in more than just story battles, especially in late game. Facade and Brave Bird all day.
It does a great job countering mega mama and mega ugly fairy with Haze.
I'm torn between loving Delcatty and having her be my signature Pokemon, or Ariados being my signature one.
The latter is because I got him back during the good old days of Gold and Silver, I caught him in the very beginning as my first catch in a new world.
I kept him in my team for the whole game, and he became an invaluable part of my team.
The former is because I had a cat who raised from being a kitten, I loved her very much and when I wanted to find a Pokemon representation of her, Delcatty just fit for her.
I figure both are good for me, but Delcatty is always going to be that special Pokemon in my heart alongside of Ariados for different reasons.
For everything but competitive, always Zangoose.
Otherwise Cinccino in singles, Scrafty in doubles.
I sat down and had a long think about it a few years back and realized. This is my guy.
She's turned matches around all the damn time.
Best poke-sis a guy can ask for
Furfrou and Cincinno are my normal type MVPs.
Furfrou mainly gets me by on people forgetting how bulky he is, while they figure it out it throws status down and generally disrupts the battle.
Banded Cinccino puts in work, occasionally tail slapping genies for OHKOs. Kills Charizards who think they are faster all day.
Mawile carries the team when all else fails. ;_;
When this little motherfucker 3-0ed a kid who picked all the legendary birds in pokemon stadium 1, he earned a permanent place in my heart.
This nigger. Quintessential on sticky web teams. Also an incredible phaser with Gastro Acid and Power Split, and if you're p splitting on things that want to set up, stone edge for some decent damage. Also beatiful defenses.
Started using this thing a long while back when it was NU, then a few months later it skyrocketed to UU (BL2, technically)
Pikachu is probably top but I haven't used him lately. Zoroark for trolling and Lucario for Jakal.
Groudon when allowed. He mai niggeru
Always. Even though he sucks, he's still my number one guy.
Discovered it this gen, fucking kills Battle Spot. Just raised a mixed one with Fake Out and Taunt.
Sceptile then Mawile and now Sceptile once again.
It's a lot of fun using it on teams and just making teams revolving around it in general.
For Pokemon X, it's Greninja and Sylveon.
My bro throughout the generations would have to be pic related, though.
I liked him before sticky web. KO'd Ghetsis' Undeleveled Hydreigon with this guy
been on every team since my first one in gen 5.
my number one has to be there!
porygon2 would be my second choice.
It used to be Haunter until Gen 4 when wifi let me evolve it with the GTS glitch, and now I have 8 on my Y version
Fucking love Flying types, and this is probably my main man.
tfw sweeping 1000 elo scrubs with shuckle for keks
Believe me, I love this little puff of cloud so much I went great lengths to find ways to make Altaria usable for online matches, but to no avail.
The Mega reveal was a true blessing to one of my all time favorite.
Ever since he was first introduces in DPPT I've loved this guy.
I know I'm gonna get bashed for this, but this guy has been a god to my teams since Diamond
My bro since I 1st got a shiny one in Sapphire
I'm really happy he got a mega evolution
I have damp rock on mine. his set is
tho honestly all you end up using is scald because it hits like a fucking truck and burns almost every time for me. you could get away with just leading him with choice specs
Charizard. I prefer his original form but I slapped Charizardite X into it just in case. Been my favorite pokemon since I got red as a kid.
i kinda wish this was there shiny
i prefer normal Zard aswell but i prefer Y to the orange and blue colours
but X is just as good
I love this guy so much
Same, Volcarona is on every team I make. I don't even give a shit that it's no longer OU, it's still a monster.
I've had one on all my teams since 2000.
I remember Will's Xatu being the first NPC to attack me with Psychic in Gen II, and the animation/sound being absolutely ridiculous. The guide I had at the time mentioned Psychic being an extremely good move, so that's likely why we "met".
Might be a common one, but I don't care. Lucario's been my favorite for a long time, and it only got better when he got such a great Mega.
Used to be one of my most recurring pokemon on my teams, and in my group of friends, I'm generally pretty associated with him when discussing Pokemon.
quiver dance into petal dance sweeps
also qt af
Extremely underrated. With pure power he is almost as powerful as Mawile
>was one of the few people lucky enough to catch a shiny mewtwo in Pokemon Gold
>reckt up shit together at Toys R Us TCG events back in the day
>won me a copy of Pokemon Stadium 2
>gen III announced
>couldn't take him along with me
>so depressed I skipped gen III entirely
>gen IV announced
>decided to get back into HeartGold
>arrive at cerulean cave
>encounter with Mewtwo
>Mewtwo is shiny again
>My bro found me again two gens later
>Brought him along into X
>True bros ever since
This nigga right here.
I always trade a Phantump to passerbys after battling them too.
Obviously good players don't do it, but it's always really funny when people are totally unprepared to deal with Rain now that we're out of Gen V and lose their entire team to him.
Kabutops is total bro status. I've actually had decent success with a bulky Assault Vest build this gen and using Weak Armor.
This guy got me good in gen5 and it's been bro status ever since
Hah, I made a Combat Amphibians team in the last game.
>Liking the inferior beetle
>Chesnaught a <spoiler>sis</spoiler> too
This thread is full of fucking awesome taste.
It's only underrated around here, I'd say. You see that thing fuck shit up a lot higher on the ladder. Solid 'mon is solid.
Seriously dude, that's fucking badass. Mewtwo's shiny isn't half bad, either. One of the few that the green works on.
When you transfer over Pokemon from RBY, they can change shiny, due to using the same system of determining shininess. That's likely what he meant.
It's okay. We all embellish our memories to make them sound more special, or forget some things. Especially if they were that long in the past. Or maybe you did indeed transfer a Mewtwo and it turned out shiny.
Either way, you must have been one happy child back then.
Never lets me down any game, 1 hit kills everything. Ever since Silver, been my bestest bro.
Most perfect moment I've had in Pokemon was when someone said 'lol its not gen 5' when I sent him in. He called me a faggot and disconnected after Kabutops took out four of his team.
Loved his design since I saw Gen V Pokemon being released, used him in White. Wrecked everything. Saved my ass when I needed it and took him to Y. Rinse and repeat. I love this guy.
Tell me about it.
It's not as fun anymore though. Back when XY first came out, no one knew how strong Mega Mawile actually was.
I remember when everyone would laugh when they saw Mawile on the team preview. First it was "lol you're using such a shit mon" and now it's "omg ban it"
5, 6, 7, 8, your taste is really great.
Of course OP would claim my bro. Why wouldn't OP claim my bro?
Ah well, kudos OP. 306/10 taste.
Ever since I found her as a poochyena in emerald, I've been working on getting her as many ribbons as I can.
420 bst, while #swaggy and all that, isn't something to boast about.
this based motherfucker. was so happy when it was confirmed as real after everyone was crying fake back when x/y first leaked. never looked back since
I really wish they'd give some serious buffs to these early-game gems. An appropriate Mega at the very least; but I wish so very very hard that Mightyena was good. But it's not. That makes me a sad Pancham.
This new bro. He wrecks teams even in OU, sometimes sweeps 4-5 pokemon.
I love this guy
>Fighting a Snorlax
>Snorlax hits with earthquake, I decide to take into gimmick overdrive and start spamming pain split
>Both finally get down to low health, Snorlax rests
>I see that coming from a mile away and start clapping
>Clap so hard, Snorlax continues to try to fall asleep
>Can't fall asleep after falling asleep
>Accidentally enter an ubers match
>Swalot vs an Arceus
>The Arceus user apparently doesn't know how Yawn works
>Swalot solos a fucking Arceus
I've got more but those are the two favorites of mine
I run 252 in speed and Sp. Atk. It's a really unexpected lead so I immediately substitute. A lot of the time people will set up leaving you one or two opportunities to set up Nasty Plot. At that point you can Chatter for a free confusion against walls or Boomburst to literally OHKO more pokemon then you would think. I run Leftovers, however a life orb set can work. Or a sash with a substitute varient.
are you me
This thing I swear.
Somehow carried my team in White, she's truly a marvel.
>>Have lunch with my Pokémon
Are you me? I'm even porting over a shiny Unaware Wooper I hatched myself to ORAS because NOT using a Wooper just feels wrong now.
I just happen to like Wooper slightly more than Quagsire, but both are really good
Ampharos is another signature mon, yet another one I can't go through a game without
Am I the only one who has different teams each game and gen?
As soon as I found out there was going to be an Archaeopteryx Pokemon I knew I was going to choose it and use it and love it.
Acrobatics + Flying Gem = the delicious tears of so many destroyed teams.
Porygon2 and Gengar
I love their designs, and Porygon2's massive Eviolite bulk is great.
Typhlosion. First pokemon I ever raised to level 100. Named him Vesivus.
Same here. I like using it as a choice specs attacker, since OHKOing breloom with hydro-pump is always fun.
