    As the thread title says, post up to six of your favorite Pokemon and other people rate them and try to figure out what your favorites say about you.

    Also, if you want, Hard Mode: No Starters/Legendaries/Mythicals. But only if you want.

    Here are my favorites:

    Kabutops, Aerodactyl, Umbreon, Skarmory, Mawile, Banette.

    I'll play.

    You definitely like fierce and scary-looking Pokemon. All of them are "sharp." Not sure what that says about you other than you seem to prefer Pokemon that look cool and can be considered weird, like Kabutops and Mawile. I can say it doesn't look like you've played more recent games since everything here is gen three and down.

    Ratings: Kabutops is a good choice, very fun Pokemon; Aerodactyl is more popular, I'm a bit neutral on it; Umbreon is cute with a nice shiny form; Skarmory is a good competitive Pokemon if you keep it away from special attacks; I've never actually used a Mawile; Banette is a solid ghost-type, I'm vaguely fond of it.

    My favorites: Mamoswine, Masquerain, Volcarona, Dragalge, Meganium, and Sylveon. If no starters, swap Meganium for Flygon.

    Kabutops. It's a prehistoric ninja death crustacean. Design wise it's a solid 8/10. Game wise? It's trash tier with shitty defenses and an absolutely horrid x4 grass weakness and that brings it down to a 6/10.

    Aerodactyl: One of my favourite 'mons. An absolute speedster with high attack to boot. 7/10 design bumped up to an overall 8/10.

    Umbreon: Many people's favourite Eeveelution because it was the flagship Pokémon for Dark types. It has a sweet design and it's really useful in game as well as competitive because of it's sheer bulk. This thing is a tank and a top tier stall 'mon. 10/10

    Skarmory: Skarmory is like marmite. You love it or you hate it. It's got a pretty nice design but it's fairly useless overall. It has access to swords dance, spikes etc... but it's no world beater. It's a solid Pokémon for a playthrough. 6/10

    Mawile: Personally, I've always hated Mawile. I don't like its' design and while its' mega version is... Alright, base version is pretty shitty. 3/10

    Banette: All ghost types are at least a little cook and Banette is a haunted doll that steals souls from children. Underwhelming in game but as with Mawile gets a decent mega. 6/10

    Zee Boys, basically, Tytar and Typhlosion were from my Heartgold Team, Flygon and Gallade from my Black 2 Team, Serperior and Shiftry were from my Black Team.

    They are, the boyz.

    My best friend and I were sharing our teams with each other yesterday, actually, so I already had a list ready. Not sure how you're all generating the images, though, sorry.

    I've always had Dragonite, Sylveon, and Absol as my favorites. Dragonite is ultimate love.

    Serperior, Furret, and Rhyperior complete the favorite team.


    My friend and I may or may not have been speculating about Pokemon fiction regarding our teams. God, the moment Pokemon comes up between us we go full nerd.

    I feel like the reviewing aspect of this thread has been scrapped so people can drop their favourite team and peace out.

    Don't much care about viability and synergy, or that half of these are Legendary... even though a lot of them (all but Articuno) were top-tier at some point or another. Not sure what that says about me.

    Articuno, Lugia, Kyogre, Chandelure, Breloom, Slowbro

    I have a few more favorites, but those are what came to mind first.

    Maybe a little. Ugh, asking us for effort.

    Paradise's Team - Clearly a vegetarian with how many grass types you've got in there. Gonna need Tyranitar to do its job and sweep the fire-type gyms and elites. Powerful team that's hurt a bit by type-advantages.

    I am here to look cool pokeymans. I am not familiar with current state of pokemons to make a good review though. "I like Scizor too" also and "I prefered Gardevoir over Gallade" is not a meaningful review to post.

    fair, @kelkorkesis, your team is like super weak to dark types, also a bit of electric lawl.

    @Vira you are going to get slapped around by fire types, but Mamoswine seems to be able to counter most of them. You only have two counters to Fire that I can see. 8/10, you are a far better team designer than I so I imagine there is something I'm missing.

    @Andrela you have like 2 main types Rock, and Steel, so water and fire are going to rek you, watch out for that. Banette and Umberon are okay, your rock types will handle most bugs, but fighting is going to reck your shit. 7/10 Team, watch out for Water, Fire, and Fighting.

    @TheWiseTomato Gyrados is a monster but he is weak as fuck to electric, maybe some ground types? 1/10 Monotyping is a bit weak to begin with, but having a mono-pokemon team, hm.

    Mudkip: fun if you like memes and only one crippling weakness down the line. Decent design, but it's the middle of the road Gen 3 starter for me. 7.8/10. 7/10.
    Aegislash: Solid, would have been a crying shame if not included in Sword/Shield. Great design. More interesting if you view it in a non-turnbased (aka more anime) setting too. 9/10.
    Shedinja: Intriguing concept gives it a lot of points, but anything that dies to a literal gust of wind isn't likely to end up on my list of favourites. Other Ghost-types do the spooky-scary soul stealing bit better as well. 8/10 design, 3/10 rest, make it 5.5/10 average.
    Alakazam: The OG Glass Cannon. I like Psychic-types, and Alakazam is a perfectly fine example of one. Gains a point bonus if you have vanilluxe in your team, but even baseline, it's a solid 8/10.
    Milotic: I'm sorry, but this just suffers from a case of sins of the pre-evolution. It's a good design, lovely counterpart to Gyarados, and a beast to fight on multiple occasions. Getting your hands on one for regular play either means you're bored as hell or you've been gulping down the Felix Felicis. 6/10.
    Rayquaza: As far as Legendaries go, this one doesn't really do it for me. I like Jirachi and Deoxys better in Gen 3, I don't like the streamers on its appearance in Mega form, and while it's undeniably a powerhouse, all Legendaries are. 6.5/10.

    I'm not even going to pretend my choice of pokemon has ever evolved what I think looks cool. Meta? What's that? My strategy is to defeat the foe in as few moves as possible.

    Tyranitar is a close runner up, but as above, I'm not one to build a team around type advantages. Unless I want to roll with Shedinja, because fuck yo' fun.

    Here's my attempt at evaluating your personalities/tastes based on your choice in Pokemon. I feel vaguely like a fortuneteller, here.

    There's a place in your heart for the cute and sentimental, but ultimately you like the coolness factor.

    You like your mons with a gimmick: either they're an accomplishment to acquire, or have that extra something special to them that makes you love them.

    You have fond memories of powering through caves and deserts with the strongest 'mons. You like your team to feel strong and intimidating.

    You were never hugged as a child, so now you only like Pokemon with arms and legs. Maybe they'll hug you one day?


    Ok! Now do me:

    Guess which one's my absolute favourite for extra bonus points.

    Since I have no idea where those pics came from and I can't be fucked to photoshop something like it together, I'll use text. When I play Pokemon, my team is pretty much always:

    1) Massively overleveled starter that solos every encounter ever
    2) HM bots stuck at whatever level I caught them at, except sometimes the magikarp I leveled into a gyrados to surf me

    It works out fairly well in my experience.

    If I had to pick a favorite of the starters, it'd probably be Infernape. The fire monkey just speaks to me.

    He's the best around, and nothing's ever gonna take him down.

    fair enough,

    also the cave thing is totally true, fuck caves, they are worse than underwater levels. literally no one ever asks for more caves. The universal worst part of any pokemon game, is the caves

    @Vira

    Mamoswine - Good ice type, I like ancient-like Pokemon (hence Kabutops and Aerodactyl) so you're getting a 10/10 from me here.

    Masquerain - I think Surskit is way cuter than his evolution, cause he looks like he blushes all the time. So that's a 5/10.

    Volcarona - That's one scary looking bug, makes me nervous. No rating, would be unfair.

    Dragalge - Isn't that just a differently-colored Kingdra? Looks like Kingdra's would-be Alolan version. 9/10 cause it looks badass.

    Meganium - Treecko line is the best grass-starter line. But, Meganium is a dinosaur we're OK so 8/10.

    Sylveon - Flesh ribbons. 7/10
