With 156 new Pokémon introduced in Unova, there are bound to be many that we all favor more than others. Whether it be because of their designs, abilities, stats, or backgrounds, there's always something we find favorable about these new Pokémon when they first came around. What are some of your favorite and least favorite Pokémon in Generation V? Were you always fond of them when you first saw them, or did it take time to adjust?

Feel free to mention other opinions you may have about the Pokémon you like or dislike in Unova.

Yeah, since we've found out all Gen V Pokémon & names, I've actually grew fond of quite alot of them, I mean there is 156 so there is quite a few to like and dislike, although, can't think of any I dislike off the top of my head.
For example, the six in my signature are some of my new favourites!

Favourites... almost everything (including Denchura/Bachuru <3)

Oh and adding onto the discussion of the last thread - I still really don't find any positives to Volcarona. ;__;

I do like most of the new pokemon, more than anything there are some I'm indifferent towards rather than strongly dislike.

Palpitoad and Cobalion still irk me a little, but not as much as when I first saw them. I guess palpitoad jiggling animation is sort of cute...

I guess the fact that it's a Bug/Fire type, and it's got such a high stat total for a non-legendary, and well.. it's a popular Pokémon.

My favorite 5th Gen Pokemon would have to be Braviary, Excadrill, Haxorus, Zororak, Serperior, Emboar, Samurott, Zebstrika, Gigalith, Krookodile, Sawsbuck, Escavalier, Eelektross, Hydreigon, Zekrom, Kyurem, and Genesect. All of these seem really well-made, if not slightly overdone.

The ones I hate? Pretty much all the others. Garbodor is the worst, though.

I have gotten used to them. At first I didnt want to ridicule them so soon. Most of them became my favorites right away..
Actuall these two here:

The only ones I don't like are Kyurem, because of its retarded wings and asymmetrical shape of the body overall, and Unfezant, because it's just weak and has a boring desing.

My favorite designs are Snivy/Servine/Serperior, Blitzle/Zebstrika, Basculin, Sandile/Krokorok/Krookodile, Archen/Archeops, Litwick/Lampent/Chandelure, and Zekrom. I dislike the designs of Munna/Musharna, Timburr/Gurdurr/Conkeldurr, Throh, Sawk, Darumaka/Darmanitan, Scraggy/Scrafty, and Trubbish/Garbodor.

I gotta say, I LOVE Trubbish and Garbador (not sure if I spelled Garbador right).
At first, I was REALLY disappointed in those designs, but then I noticed "Hey! Those are based on garbage bags!" and I fell in love with them.
Especially Trubbish. It's so adorable in its own way!

It was love at first sight for me and Erufuun.
I'm so dismayed by the English name that I now refuse to use it. :c
Erufuun is much more fitting than Whimsicott...
Heh. c: Back on topic, I really have grown to love these new Pokemon.
...Except for that one dragon that looks like it belongs in Digimon. HATEHATEHATEHATE it.

Like Nica said, I tend to find the good in just about every Pokemon in this generation. It didn't take me that long to get accustomed to these Pokemon; they're actually not that bad.

Yes, even Volcanroa.

February 5th, 2011, 02:04 PM
My dislikes? Well, I hate about 70% of the new pokemon when 80% of the pokemon designs are actual crap.

On the other hand though, I do really like Bedrock Crab and Seed Bby.

My favorite B/W Pokemon:
-Excadrill (how can you not like a Pokemon that looks like Neo-Spacian Grand Mole?)
-Zoroark (for its ability to fool opponents with Illusion)
-Reshiram and Zekrom (for being the mascot Pokemon)
-Samurott/Daikenki (the most epic of the fully evolved Unova starters)
-Hydreigon/Sazandora (3-headed dragon of doom)
-Volcarona/Ulgamoth (flaming moths win)
-Bisharp/Kirikizan (looks like a Power Ranger)
-Archeo(p)s (good stats, cool design)

Least favorites:
-Trubbish/Yabukuron and Garbodor/Dasutodasu (they creeped me out when I first saw them)
-Cryogonal/Furiijio (creepy snowflake, bizarre movepool)

I think everybody takes an immediate dislike to the new Pokemon whenever a new generation comes out, then we eventually come around. I know I hated the third and fourth gens when they first arrived, now I love them all. I haven't looked at a lot of the fifth gen Pokemon yet, because I want the first time I see them to be when I'm playing the games, but I'm sure I'll feel the same way about them too.

Not forgetting Sewaddle! Oh, and Vanillite too.
Foongus, too!! And Golett.
I don't really like any of the legendaries...

My favourites are probably Garbodor and Chandelure.
Garbodor I wasn'ttoo fond of at first, but now it's one of my favourites, and I instantly fell in love with Chandelure when I first saw it.
The only one I really don't like is Cryogonal. It's a block of ice shaped like a snowflake with some orbs in it. That's it :\

Moved this to the opinions thread, since you already started what starter you wanted.

Anyway, I disagree. :( It's adorable; much cuter than a lot of B/W Pokemon.

UGLY? I could understand if you said unappealing, but UGLY? D:
Tepig is definitely the cutest of the 3 starters, followed closely by Oshawott. But personally, I don't find Snivy cute at all. Does that make me weird? :s

Yeaaah I've never really liked Snivy. :x

I blame the fans. I like its design but overall? Honestly, Tepig/Oshawott look a lot better than it.

Plus Tepig's final evo can learn ~scald~ via TMs soooo :3

Magg--Stunfisk isn't strange. It represents the creature it's... trying to represent. Blame the actual creature? :(

Tbh, the only thing is I wish it would be completely flat - but otherwise there isn't that much too bad about it.

theowlmanlives
February 9th, 2011, 06:23 PM
if it was completely flat it wouldn't look strange. Though I don't like some of the designs of the pokemon its nice to see the game designers are trying to be more original.
Also I thought they stopped their monkey business with aipom and chimchar but it seems they've made an elemental monkey trio

Excadrill, I absolutely love Excadrill. I imagine it will be the equivalent to my Rhydon from Generation I games, although it seems like the common opinion of Excadrill is positive. Along with Excadrill, Zoroark is one of my favorites of Generation V. Archeops and Zebstrika (appearance-wise for Zebstrika, not so fond of the stats outside of speed) are another two of my favorites.

I didn't like Chandelure at first, but it has grown to be one of my favorites (especially with Shadow Tag, talk about a beast.) And lastly Tirtouga and Carracosta, I love both of them. I would have loved to see a middle-evolution in its evolution chain and see it as the water starter instead of the Oshawott evolution chain. In fact, none of the starters are that great this time around if you ask me.

Again with this? How can people not see that Stunfisk is a flounder? I mean, really, look at this:
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101120193021/pokemon/images/b/b0/Maggyo.png
http://www.floridiannature.com/gulf-flounder.jpg

I can't be the only one who knows what a flounder is.

Anyways, I have quite a few favorites with this generation (bolded = possible team members): Victini, Oshawott - Dewott - Samurott, Drilbur - Excadrill, Scolipede, Sandile - Krookodile, Sigilyph, Archen - Archeops, Karrablast - Escaliver, Joltic - Galvantula, Tynamos - Eelektross, Litwick - Chandelure, Stunfisk, Mienfoo - Mienshao, Deino - Hydreigon

Yeah, that's a long list. As for dislikes, there are only a few: Tympole and its evos (ugly wart things, plus Tympole's CREEPY HUMAN-FACE-LIKE-THING), Timburr-Conkeldurr (just plain ugly, look at that face and tell me that it's cool looking; it's name matches what I'd expect it to be saying. DURRRRRRR), almost anything with the ability Sturdy after its change (no OHKOs is unfair, I mean seriously), and Druddigon (needs to go back to Digimon, where it belongs).

You're not alone here. Stunfisk/Maggyo is based on a flounder with characteristics of electric rays or a stargazer. It should've been Water/Ground instead of Electric/Ground; if it's found on water, why is it weak to Water attacks?

It's probably a Ground/Electric type because of what it's based on. Like I said, Stunfisk is based off of flounders, but, as mentioned by PlatinumDude, it's also based off of stargazers. That's the Electric type part. (Excerpt from Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stargazer) - "Stargazers...can also cause electric shocks") As for the Ground type, flounders AND stargazers spend most of their time on the sea floor, covering themselves up in the ground and waiting for their prey to approach. Expanding upon that, Stunfisk also known as the Trap Pokémon: that being a reference to how many are injured by stepping on a stingray on a beach. It all adds up quite nicely, albeit a little obscure.

Though if they could have, they probably would've made it Electric/Ground/Water type. They just didn't want to break that "two types max" rule, most likely. It would've made everything so much more confusing.

Heatran... it either was that Pokemon or another Unova Pokemon it looked like, I think someone mentioned earlier. Or maybe it was you. Idk. XD Gigalith is better than the middle stage evo though :(

...yeah Emboar would've only looked better that way (it's what most of the fans were assuming). Samurott and Serperior look un-natural and don't really match Snivy/Oshawott, whereas Emboar actually looks somewhat natural, without the extra "add-ons", like what Samurott has with the jewels on its body.

I think the garbage and the ice cream pokemon look awful and fail to see the appeal in their design seeing as they're neither cute nor particularly fierce looking.

I adore Sazandora though, such a flawless design and type combo!

There's a few hit and miss designs this gen, but on the whole they're a good looking bunch.

I don't recall much discussion on Lillipup in the older thread, or maybe I'm just forgetful. Either way, I think Lillipup is pretty adorable. When I first saw it, I thought the fur or whatever is exactly on its face was nice, but... I dunno, now after looking at Stoutland and Herdier, I actually prefer their designs to Lillipup, because they look more realistic. Not saying Lillipup isn't cute though, but maybe to see it without the facial fur, maybe? :D;

(Then again, it probably would look weird without it)

Snivy - I just love it's personality. It's super cute too!
Liepard - Finally, an easily obtainable cat that isn't normal type! :3
Sewaddle, Cottony, Petilil, Cinccino - ADORABLE! <3
Deerling - I'm excited about the way its look changes with the seasons.
Chandelure - Has a really interesting design, and I like its unique type combo.
Mienshao - Looks so graceful. I'm tired of the fighting types that look like people. XD
Hydreigon - Love the name origins behind this one and the others in its family.

On the other hand, I really can't stand the ice cream Pokemon. Try hard to look cute. No, really.

I like the whole line. Now that I look, he does have some really weird facial hair going on there. xD But he's so little and squishable he can pull it off. Stoutland's a little freaky looking. Probably because he sort of explodes with fur, haha.

Well yeah Stoutland has a lot of fur, but looking at that and Lillipup, which is more realistic? Clearly Stoutland! ...I think. As for Herdier, everything about its body and fur covering seems to line up perfectly imo.

(Well maybe not Stoutland as I don't see that ma--wait there is a type of dog that is really furry like Stoutland...I just forgot what it is XD;)

Purrloin, Unfezant, Bliztle, Swoobat, Audino, Sewaddle, Scolipede, Whimsicoot, Liligant, Sandile, Dwebble, Minnicno/Ciccino, Emolga, Galvantula, Litwick, Axew and... DEERLING! <3

...yeah Emboar would've only looked better that way (it's what most of the fans were assuming). Samurott and Serperior look un-natural and don't really match Snivy/Oshawott, whereas Emboar actually looks somewhat natural, without the extra "add-ons", like what Samurott has with the jewels on its body.

serperior looks better that way...and it can also be kinda related to servine....but common....the emboar and serperior in that pic look a lot better then the official ones....not the duwot one though...looks like.....i don't know.....

OH wow I love that pic of Emboar, it looks way betetr than the actual Emboar XD It looks way fiercer, faster and generally cooler than what we have now. Not that I don't like Emboar or anything.
yeah i thought people would like him.......he's gr8.....

I think the garbage and the ice cream pokemon look awful and fail to see the appeal in their design seeing as they're neither cute nor particularly fierce looking.

I adore Sazandora though, such a flawless design and type combo!

There's a few hit and miss designs this gen, but on the whole they're a good looking bunch.

yeah they suck man.........

Well to be quite honest, it is an ice-type legendary, and I would assume those are ice wings. To be honest, I don't find it to be that bad really, it sorta looks cool. What I don't understand is the possible concept or meaning behind it's inclusion, and how it relates to Reshiram and Zekrom. D: But I don't know if that could really be discussed here...

I don't know about anyone else, but I feel that the pokemon designs are starting to revert back to their roots, which is a good thing. One of the few differences is the better quality they are available in, but just their overall design and layout of each creature in general seem as though they were pulled from the past. It makes sense if you think about it, how the time is supposed to be around the same as the first games.

^ This. Basing on the typing difference as well, Kyurem is hardly like Cranidos. However I see where you may be getting the resemblance from, the color scheme is slightly similar as well as positioning. But moreover, it most likely wasn't thought of from Cranidos, and moreover of the above. :o

As I said, it's only similar in design. Kyurem as a creature, well, story wise and Pokemon wise, other than the design is similar to nothing else. Except Zekrom/Reshiram. :x I was just noticing that a few current Pokemon have poses similar to past-gen Pokemon, and wondering whether they got inspiration for poses / designs actually from them - nothing to do with the actual Pokemon.

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/495.png Easy pick. Smugleaf Snivy is a great Pokemon all round and has one the most Pokemon-like designs.

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/501.png Everything I've said about Snivy applies to Oshawott.

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/548.pngSimplicity is the reason why I like some of the Generation V Pokemon. This is just so basic, that's why it's so great!

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/559.png The concept is just brilliant. A lizard with PANTS? I'm sold. Shame that it sprite sucks.

Tornadus, Thunderus, Landorus. I mean, come on. They all seem to have the same base sprite, just a recolor and change of tail and other minor details. All of the other trios had stuff in common - Mesprit, Azelf, and Uxie had 2 tails and similar body shape, but they were in different poses. Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres were all birds with similar shapes as well. But this BW trio... they're all in the exact same pose. Exact same... couldn't they have thought of something different?

Kyurem doesn't really bother me. I think it's kind of cool, actually. Ducklett, Rufflet {two "let"'s?}, and Vullaby make me laugh. They all are tiny with fluffy heads. {Except for Vullaby, whose fat, but still makes me laugh)

Now, Gothita, Gothoria, Gothitelle, and Meloetta. They look like people, not Pokemon... looking at them makes me think: "Gamefreak's run out of ideas so they've had to resort to making humanlike Pokemon?"

I think everybody takes an immediate dislike to the new Pokemon whenever a new generation comes out, then we eventually come around.

Just because the negativity seems to be dominating at times doesn't mean that "immediate disliking" was/is true for all Generation V Pokemon (or any new generation of Pokemon). I actually took an immediate liking to Zoroark, Reshiram, Zekrom, Tepig, Wotter, and Snivy when I first saw them. It's just personal opinion upon first glance, though opinions can change over time... It's entirely possible (though somewhat unlikely) for people to take an immediate liking or disliking to all the new Pokemon upon their revelation.

Furthermore, the passage of time does not necessarily mean people will become accustomed/used to the designs and/or names of the most recent Pokemon. I'm still at odds with the color schemes of Crimgan and Sazandora, primarily because I've gotten sick of it being overused for past generations.



Really? D: But they're both bent over and have short arms and the same angle kinda opposite... the poses! D: I just think their designs are similar, making them ~similar~ in design. I wish Crimgan stole someone else's design. Not saying it has something to do with the trio, though. XD Cause obv Kyurem fits within this trio.

First off, WTF, people?! Like 5+ images of Kyuremu on the same page?! Of all Pokemon, that is the one I'm trying to avoid spoilers of the most! T_T

Anyway, yeah...when I "glimpsed" Kyuremu, Rampardos instantly came to mind. I have a feeling when I permit myself to look at the full artwork and sprites, Kyuremu will end up looking much, much cooler, with me getting slightly irritated every time I see Rampardos from then on.


On another note, this piece of artwork has ramped up Daikenki's coolness significantly for me:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/thumb/0/0a/Unova_starters_evolution_artwork.png/536px-Unova_starters_evolution_artwork.png

A freaking quadrupedal samurai otter that can fight with a bipedal stance as well! And it sheathes its twin swords in its elbow guards. The only thing I still have a problem with in Daikenki's design is the helmet shell. It just look like a three-year-old collected a random shell on the beach, slapped it on Daikenki's head, and added irregular spike placement because Spikes of Doom (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SpikesOfDoom) = Rule of Cool (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RuleOfCool), or something.

I really wish Serperior was bipedal! It is one of the coolest Pokemon this gen but the fact that it lost it's legs bothers me. Samurott gained a lot of point from me after I saw the artwork of it on its hind legs. It reminds me of Swampert (My fave starter from Gen 3) in a weird hard to explain way. Whismsicott is the most adorable thing. As well as the green blob with only arms from White.

Am I the only one who thinks that Pidove (and its whole family) is ugly? I mean look at em! They look like someone beat up and downgraded Starly. Cubchoo is a disappointment to me. All these years waiting for a polar bear pokemon and this is what we get? I think the big icicle hanging from its nose is what deters me. The legendaries are meh. Minus Reshiram none of them look especially cool. Tympole is ugly but its final evo looks pretty cool.

I don't necessarily have a problem with any pokemon specifically in B/W; I've gotten used to the gears except for their possible cheesy name, as well as Cofagrigus(this name doesn't make things easier on me as well, but eh, thats not the point).

If there's one pokemon's design that really bother's me the most though, it's Kyurem's design. Despite how big of a fan I am of Ice Pokemon(well usually, anyway), this one really doesn't strike out much to me, and it just bothers me more and more I look at it.

I don't know how I feel about Beartic or Cubchoo. Both are kind of awesome, but what's hanging out of Cubchoo's nose, and Beartic's fur just kind of throws me off from actually liking them, especially since there are better ice types that I can use when I get to play the games.

Cubchoo... CUB + AH-CHOO...?

Beartic... BEAR + ARCTIC...?

If those are the origins, I'm surprised I got them just now (I believe I came across Beartic once before, and immediately thought "BEAR+TICK" and was like "WTF?"

Oh, how I await the day that I start posting in Official English Name Discussion again...

Anyway, if you're referring to the new polar bear Pokemon, I haven't seen Cubchoo... Beartic...looks OK, but is awkwardly designed, in a sense. Like when you look at it, it doesn't look as powerful as Ursaring does. Weird that it has ice boogers as well... :(

Beartic just reminds me of my old teddy bear. =O Like really...it looks JUST like it. :3 Its design is pretty cool; kind of weird for an ice type, but, at least its different. <3

And I have to say...Golurk is a very interesting ghost type the more I look at it. @-@; It kind of reminds me of Registeel, Regice and Magmortar mixed together. I dunno.

Well we have a fire ant eater so it would make sense for the Ant to have been something weak to fire like Steel/Bug...though they could have made the Ant eater (forget it's name) Water and the ant Fire...

Durant looks cool to me, because it's an iron ant. It's even bigger than a real life ant, but it's still small in Pokemon terms.

Cubchoo is adorable (but I hate the snot hanging from its nose), but Beartic looks epic. Only thing that lets Beartic down is its poor Speed and limited movepool.

And yeah, I don't like Cubchoo's boogers and Beatric's ice beard thing.

I would agree with you there, but I just want to point out that Sceptile has some pretty abysmal defenses. Serperior definitely beats it in that area. Offenses, maybe, it depends. I would say Serperior is a mix of average offense and defense with a good speed to balance everything out.

As far as designs though. Serperior > Sceptile.

Well in general I think pigs are gross, just like monkeys that's why I didn't really like Chimchar and that's probably why I don't like Tepig and Emboar.

Snakes are amazing animals to me, so in looks Serperior defeats Sceptile 10 fold. I also think Grovyle looks 10 fold better than Sceptile though I'm not exactly sure of the reason.

Y'know something like this comes up every time a new Gen is introduced. Not saying you're wrong, mind you, I respect your opinion but some Pokemon are made just to be there, you know? Imagine being the designer, or even worse the person who has to decide the stats and the location. Plus, they don't have a lot of time, believe me I think they wish they could improve some designs or movesets but what's done is done.

To be honest, if I was a Gamefreak employee I'd feel like there's always something missing to Pokemon, like every Gen starting from 1 was..rushed.

I agree completely.

And on top of that, they want Pokemon to appeal to everyone, not just some people so there is just a lot of different types, animals and colors!

Everyone single Pokemon is liked by at least some people out there.

The ice cream pokemon still gets me, and so does Klink. It kind of proves that Game Freak was really searching the bottom of the barrel for ideas on new pokemon, even their evolution patterns stink. It basically stole the trend of Diglett and Magnemite:

Gears > More Gears > Gears with Spikes

Ice Cream > Bigger Ice Cream > Two Ice Creams

It kind of makes me wonder whether their sole existence is to be a joke or not.

I actually think this was the intention; having Pokemon that have some similarity between past ones would happen in this reigon.
But, I was also apprehensive over the Klink-line at first but, I'm come to grow to it as it just seems like a good set of Pokemon, the same with the Vanilite-line.

(Oh and both first-evolutions in these lines are adorable!)

I personally don't like kyurem's design. It looks so small and weak compared to Reshiram and Zekrom. I personally think they shouldn't have put Kyurem into the energy trio. In fact, the other two trios should have been discarded and a trio of pokemon similar to kyurem should have been made instead in place of them..

Yeah but apparently Kyuremu is all damaged and beaten up, with broken wings. That is why it is predicted it will have a bigger and better form in the Third Game. So maybe it was made a little smaller for that reason? I personally don't mind the size of him.

Among my favortes are Serperior, Oshawott (and evos), Roggenrolla, Scolipede, Sandile (and evos), Darmanitan, Scraggy, Zorua, Zoroark, Reuniclus, Joltik (so cute), Eeelektross, the Musketeer Trio, Litwick, Accelcord, Fraxure, Pawniard, Rufflet, Braviary , Sazandora, Volcarona, and the mascots (much better than Dialga and Palkia's designs , in my opinion).

Im not really a huge fan of the genie trio, and there are quite a few designs that are just plain unoriginal, such as Emboar (looks like Magmortar a bit) Pidove, Carragosta, Vanilluxe, Sawsbuck, Buffalon, Kling and evos.

I hope they aren't adding 2 eyes to a house and call that a Pokemon in Gen 6.

Those elemental monkeys drive me mad too, basically those 6 Pokemon are more or less the same thing, and they call it 6 pokemon

To be honest, if I was a Gamefreak employee I'd feel like there's always something missing to Pokemon, like every Gen starting from 1 was..rushed.

Personally, I feel that Generation V's introduction was rushed, and Generation IV's conclusion was rushed. There would've been no problem in delaying BW for a year. The anime could have had one more season involving the other Sinnoh Frontier Brains and more aimless adventures with Characters of the Day. Nintendo could have released that darn Azure Flute that apparently no one got. The anime could have also eased in a few Unova Pokemon. Yeah, Unova Pokemon are rare in other regions, but you'd expect a few Trainers to have visited there, toured, and returned home before Ash's journey there. Zoroark and Zorua weren't really showcased properly because it's just about a month before the actual games are released. A whole year before Generation V's introduction would have been decent, with maybe one to three Unova Pokemon appeared in the Lily of the Valley tournament as opposed to Takuto spamming legendaries.

As for designs being rushed...can't do much about that now. However, the game developers don't really have an excuse for maintaining more movesets and locations, as those could easily be fixed for Pokemon Gray Version via relocation; level-up move adjustments, move tutors, egg moves, etc. Maybe if Nintendo catered to the patient fans who care about quality as opposed to the subset of fans who want everything yesterday, we wouldn't have had Generation 5 causing "RUINED FOREVER!!!" so much before the generation even begins...

It kind of makes me wonder whether their sole existence is to be a joke or not.

Well, a lot of Pokemon have exhibit that feature...

Two-headed Bird > Three-headed Bird (Dodrio line)
Rock Nose > Bigger Rock Nose With Mini-Noses (Probopass line)
Eggs/Seeds > Eggs/Seeds on a Tree (Exeggcutor line)
One Poison Mine > Two Poison Mines (Weezing line)
One Iron Ball > Two "Iron Balls" > Four "Iron Balls" (Metagross line)

It's been done for quite a while, so the Ice Cream Pokemon only seem to be perpetuating it and emulating a part of Kanto's Pokemon evolutionary families...

Well, to start off, i LOVE zekrom, he's so cool, and so powerful! i love his designs!

I ALSO love zoroark, LONG before he was revealed i have always loved black and red together, and look what colours zoroark are! i love his design, and his ability, however he doesnt have the best movepool IN THE GAMES.

I also love Hazorus (ononokusu in japan) is BEAST, i love the blades on the sides of his mouth, he literally is one of the best looking, and MOST ORIGINAL pokemon designs from the fifth generation, i have been waiting for someone looking like him to come around into pokemon, by the way, His shiny form is WAY better for the same colour reasons as zoroark.

Braviary (wargle in japan) is ok, i didnt like how they modeled him after the american flag, when there are tons more people out there playing their games, BRING IN A CANADIAN POKEMON!!!! AND NOT A BEAVER! OR A HOCKEY STICK, OR A JAR OF MAPLE SYRUP! But still braviary is the BEST looking BIRD pokemon of the 5th gen.

Serperior (Jalorda in japan), out of the starters FINAL evolutions, i'd say he looks the best, then oshawott's (mijimaru in japan) third evo looks the next best, and i HATE Tepig's (pokabu in japan) 2nd AND 3rd Evolution, ITS SO FAT, AND WE DONT NEEC ANOTHER FIRE FIGHTING 3RD EVOLUTION, WEVE HAD THAT SINCE GEN. 3!!!!!!!

Victini is an ok pokemon, not nearly my favourite, but i love the originality of it, IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A POKEMON!!

And since i said zekrom, i have to give my HONEST opinion about reshiram, i dont like him as much as zekrom, its not him really, i just dont like the way he looks, other people can, but im sticking with zekrom - the MASTER of the rascist!

Carracosta (Abagoura in japan) i got used to carracosta's japanese name, so ill call him that from now on, i love his design even if he does look a little too much like a turtle... good movepool

I really like that there's more new pokemon, a good portion of which I like. I was particularly excited wheb I saw Chandelure since I thought a ghost/fire chandelier was an awesome idea and drew it up about a year ago, and when they actually made it I about peed my pants in excitement.

What I dislike is that I like alot of the prevo pokemon, but the evolutions suck juicy badonkadonk. The names also suck, and it's going to be the first pokemon game where I nickname. Not because I want to nickname because it's cool, but to hide the shame of such terrible monickers. And my biggest complaint is where 3rd and 4th gen took inspiration from 1st gen, 5th just copied it blatantly. Looking down the list I count 28 evo lines that rip 1st gen ones. That's 58 pokemon, not counting more in-depth comparisons. You have the new hitmontwins, and even a new machamp à la "I'm holding a branch-now I'm holding a much heavier steel gurder-now I'm holding twice as much with these 2 concrete pillars." Gamefreak is gettin' real fancy with the ideas, am I right?

After seeing this thread I thought I'd have a proper look through the new pokemon and see if I could find a favourite.

Before I look I'm pretty sure I can say that I'll dislike anything that's too similar to any previous gen pokemon, but I guess I'll see from looking through them :)

First of all I'm not really too fond of the starters, but I started playing when pokemon first came out so nothing will ever beat Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur :)

Purrloin just looks like a Glameow rip off and is it just me or does Garvantula look exactly like Ariados? lol

That being said I do like the look of the dark dragon Hydreigen and Volcarana the Bug Fire type, I'm looking forward to using more bugs this time round as it seems there's a lot of choice when it comes to the bugs this time round.

I'm sure I'm not the first to say this too but the legendary sprites don't seem as special anymore due to the amount of legendaries around these days. I do however quite like the look of Kyurem.

I agree. It's very cute at first and then when it evolves... it is just... fail.

What I find odd is that it looks like an actual pokeball on its head. I find that unrealistic. Would that even be possible? O.o I mean for it to miraculously have a perfect drawing of a pokeball on it, unlike Voltorb who just resembles a pokeball.

Maybe the pokeball design was originally based on Foongus? That's a sort of outside the box way of thinking about it.

OK, it's true a LOT of Gen 5 Pokemon look like Gen 1 rip-offs, but....maybe that's the point. For one thing this is supposed to be a whole new "fresh start" region, so they need annoying bat Pokemon like Zubat, cute little rodents like Pachirisu and Pikachu, etc. Also, even though this is comparing a game to real life, there are tons of species that look very similar, but they're different. If Pokemon are supposed to be the "animals" of the Poke-world, then shouldn't that rule apply, to some extent?

Despite all that, there's no excuse for the spriters to literally copy+paste different Pokemon or evolutions and add stuff and say it's a new Pokemon. (Gear and the Kamis)

They could have make Gear more unique like Magnemite and Bronzor's evolution(s)...but not hey just added parts to it...I liked the first evo of Gear but the second didn't changed that much from the first evolution...

I remember reading somewhere that the thing that Game Freak or whatever tried to apply to this generation was simply a "fresh start", like you said. They could take old ideas for Pokemon or perhaps things that have been done before (aka bat pokemon, "useless" generic fish pokemon, pokemon-based-off-of-a-rock, fighting-duo pokemon, etc etc etc) and design them differently this time around. They still have to meet specifics and stuff like this many Flying-types and this many Water-types, but aside from that, they ditched everything they had before and basically tried to give new life to old ideas. I think that's one of my favorite parts of B/W - they're revitalizing the series by giving everyone and every aspect of the game a "fresh start".

This might have already been said, and if so, i agree.
The grass and water starters for this gen are beast, as always. Now, the only fire starter i've ever really liked is charizard (FTW). But this genereation, it is ugly, uncreative, and poorly designed. no offense to those of you who are going to pick it, but there is nothing about it that makes it stand out. it is humanoid with flames coming out of it and has claws. all things that are the claims to fame of other (awesome) pokemans. i kind of expected better of gamefreak.

I dunno, honestly I'd have to agree with you. I don't want to complain too much, because I'm just happy to have another pokemon game. But Emboar looked like a joke to me. I thought it was someone's idea of a weird barbecue pig wearing a mucha lucha wrestling belt.

That said, I do adore vanilli! It's so freaking cute. And I'm starting to like the samurai otter. At first I thought it was weird that it evolved to start walking on all fours, but now it's growing on me.

Its glaringly obvious some pokemon are based of others( Golem/Gigalith-Machamp/Conkeldurr), and the thing is that the copies dont seem as good as the originals...and does Tepig learing a Water tyoe move really make it that great....Game Freak could have done better with the new pokemon but overall the game will still be epic

I used to dislike Gothitelle heavily because to me, it seemed like a psuedo-Gardevoir, but sorta worse. Nowadays, I don't care for it as much, but it's still a bit awkward for me. It's not something that I would personally see on my team or anything.

And from what I'm seeing, it's stats aren't that bad. My main concern is probably it's speed, but I guess that could be remedied by Trick Room maybe?

I REFUSE to call any of them by their English names, though. (LOL, Some legendaries exempt, though.) Sawk? Throh? Seriously, has Nin(cada)Ten(tacool)Do(duo) lost its creativity? Honestly?

I notice some generation 5 pokemon have more similarities to gen 1 pokemon, that's why B/W quite refreshing for me. What i call ridiculous is to keep making pokemon that based of inanimate object. If they want to keep making inanimate object Pokemon, would they at least choose more appropriate object? It quite disturb me having an ice cream floating around.

I think the main things "creeping people out" are those light blue ellipses (the "sclera") that enclose the dark blue ellipses (the "irises") in Vanillite's/Vanipeti's design. I admit, the eyes do look kind of creepy at times. Without the navy blue part being outlined, I think this line would be much cuter simply because of that subtraction. The current design is a cute-quirky one, though. :)

Ok I agree wit some people when they say that the pokedex os lacking on some pokemon, and yes it seems they became lazy. but think of it from this point of view. there, what already like 549 pokemon out, at this point its hard to create a pokemon while still remaining true to the "pokemon concept". But below are a few pokemon that stand out to me and I have some comments about!!!

Bouffalant

Ok come on now, this is just a splice of touros. How lazy did they get with this one. Now I have no doubt in my mind hes badass, but seriously...
http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/3025/bouffalant.png


Carracosta

Ok he's just cool. I do however think of the story tortoise and the hare when I see him. But all in all I totally want him!
http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/5895/carracosta.png


Chandelure

Ok how could you not love this pokemon? He's awesome looking I'd hang him from the cealing in my house! Especially in his shiny form.
http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/8195/chandelure.png


Conkeldurr

Ok He's way cooler looking that machamp, you should agree or he'd hit you with them cinderblocks he carries around... I am too afraid to ask him why...
http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/4518/conkeldurr.png



Cubchoo

Now isn't he adoreable? Or he would be if he didn't have that giant boogey hanging from his nose, PLEASE!!! would someone get him a tissue?
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/3923/cubchoo.png


Golurk

Now in my opinion his name makes no sense.. But how could you not love him, he looks like a a rock'em sock'em robot! Those of us who know what that is you know we just couldn't put them down..
http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/1046/golurk.png

Krookodile

Now I just love this pokemon, but his second form looks better my opinion.. but he reminds me of killer croc! maybe they shoulda added bat man, oh wait they did by giving primape wings.
http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/7762/krookodile.png


Pawniard

Who wouldnt love a pokemon with PAWN in its name especially one who looks like him... lol I love him
http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/1908/pawniard.png

Sawsbuck

Now this pokemon is the meaning of awesome! a pokemon who changes with the seasons.. I WANT IT!
http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/8123/sawsbuckspring.png

Vanillite

Awe come on now, what did they run outta ideas on this one went to get ice cream and came up with this.. He looks like a good snack, how much
damage can a ice cream cone do when Sunny Day is used!
http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/5319/vanillite.png

Tornadus

He's awesome, and so are the other 2! I cant even say anything else but genie from alladdan better watch out or he might lose his job..
http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/3570/tornadus.png

I think Gen V actually has the best standalone design of any game.

Like, yeah, I grew up with Gen I. But looking back, some of those designs are trash. More trash then Trubbish... whom I actually like. I think it takes a certain creativity to actually make a decent Pokemon out of a trash bag/ice cream.

The only thing I'm truly disappointed in are the three genie/djinn legendaries. They're such a waste of space to me.

My B/W favorites are Sandile, Krookodile and Liepard. They both are very strong and beautiful! I've never used Dark-types, but because of these Pokemon, I will :D
I love the idea of the Pancake trio (this is my own name of the Pan- elementary monkeys :D) and their cool look.
I also really like Snivy, Sewaddle and Reuniclus! So cute~
And I find Tympole and its evolution chain... VERY bizarre, but cute, too.

What I don't like are Oshawott's and Tepig's 3rd evolutions, Samurott and Emboar. Samurott is just an ugly version of Dialga with a horn on its forehead and mustache. Emboar looks just horrible.
Also, I hate the new Fighting-types. They all look like they are about to kill someone... Sawk and Throh's angry poker faces. Timburr's evil grin. >_> Go look at it.
And yeah, Gothitelle! What is this... thing? I didn't really expect Nintendo to make a goth Pokemon. It looks terrible. Gardevoir's ugly cousin, pah.

It's not like I rate Pokemon only by how they look. This thread is just about discussing Gen V Pokemon designs, not power xP

Ugh... now that I've just seen garbodor, I want to be a little bit sick. Just to get rid of this puky feeling in my stomach.

Now imagine it hugging you.

I actually start to like Garbador's pre evolution, he looks quite cute tbh. I want one and I won't evolve it. Garbador just has some mouth issues.... I think it is that mouth that turns me from liking it.

I like most of them- but the ones I dislike are:

-The elemental monkeys

-The fluffy lovebats

-Throh/Sawk: that's some pretty lazy character design for pokemon. Almost as bad as Voltorb/Electrode. But at least those guys had personality.

-The trash. I much prefer Grimer/Muk's nondescript gelatinous blob as opposed to these heaps with hardcore "durrr" faces.

-The gothgirls. At least Gardevoir was pretty.

The ice cream cones. Seriously, they're friggin' ice cream cones.

-The Pokeshrooms. The only thing I like about them are their punny names.

-The gears. I just don't like 'em. Megnemites have cool magnets. And magnetism is science. And science is cool.

Oshawott is by far the ugliest PKMN I've saw in B/W. Its nose is what bothered me.

Oshatwott? You sure you mean Oshawott? It is like so freaking cute though!! I LOVE it's nose, and its shell, and soft fluffyness, and it's shiny is to die for...

I actually like Oshawott, even though I hated it at first. But I don't like its minisprite.

The Ice Cream pokemon, I mean, come on Game Freak, Ice Cream??!

I do like the evolutions of Sandile and Excadrill though, they look pretty cool :)

Yes, I'm serious, and I never joke. I just don't like its design. Its evolutions are better though.
I also hate the rubbish family, Woobat and its evolution, and the gears. (Lack of creativity)

Also, the ice cream PKMN just made me want to stomp them instead of using my PKMN to knock them out.
Many Generation V PKMN are cool and many Generation V PKMN are ugly. It sure is a weird Generation.

I hated the ice cream Pokemon when they were first released. Now though, they've really grown on me, especially Vanillite (it's rather adorable!) If you ask me, they're tons better than the atrocity that is Garbodor.

this is the third generation in a row where the fire starter evolves into something disgusting.
ok ok blaziken was alright but infernape and this... "thing" called emboar are horrible.
such a shame, tepig is awesome.
patrat is irritating. why cant we have a cool generic weak rodent pokemon like sentret.
and why are there so many pokemon from previous generations that we cant get without "poketransfer" or dreamworld? i long for a pokemon game where you can just straight up get all pokemon. i can understand pokemon specific to different versions of the same generation to encourage trading, but all pokemon should be available within a generation.

other than that i like it

I find that if it's not cute, it's ugly, for Generation V Pokemon.

There's no mid-way. It's either cute, or hideous.

The shinies also have some weird colourings.

I find there are more ugly Pokemon than cute, though :s It also appears in general, they're running out of ideas.

I hated it at first as well, but most Pokemon grew on me. About the Garbage, Gears, and ice cream, I like all of them, but maybe I can agree that GF took its creativity to an... odd level.

I think the only one that bugs me a bit is the icecream one or that other one that is shaped like a heart. Otherwise, the pokemon this generation are pretty good. Pretty nice having an entirely new set to collect. No pre-evolutions, evolutions, or alternative evolutions of the old one. Can only wonder what Gen 6 will bring to the table with these.

^ That heart-shaped Pokemon is called Alomomola. It reminded me of Luvdisc and most of us even thought Luvdisc would evolve into it. But we were wrong (darn you, GF).

One of the weirdest B/W Pokemon I have ever seen is Eelektrik, primarily because of its eyes and mouth.

As most of us know there are 156 new pokemon in B&W so I thought I might help out with getting people to know these pokemon a little better. Once a week (Maybe 2 or 3 times) I will Post a Review on a pokemon and just help you know what to do when you catch one, Ya Know?


Today we are starting with... #000 Victini! http://i764.photobucket.com/albums/xx281/trapt11d7/494_victini_front_norm.png

Well if you've already got the Liberty Pass this might be helpful...

It starts off at level 15 with Confusion, Incinerate, Quick Attack, and Endure (sadly you need to wait until later to reteach Searing Shot, which is an amazing attack). Mainly you'll be using Confusion because Incinerate in epicly weak.At level 17, it learns Headbutt, which is nice and strong at this point in the game. It learns Flame Charge at level 25, which raises Victini's Speed afterwards and should replace Incinerate. At level 33, it learns Reversal, but that's hard to pull off with Endure and vulnerable to random Quick Attacks. (Yeah I know, Stupid quick attack!)It picks up a fairly strong Flame Burst at level 41, Zen Headbutt at level 49, and then the Zap Cannon of Burn at level 57: Inferno. It learns moves all the way up to level 97, where it learns Overheat (hardly worth the hassle). Flare Blitz is alright at level 73, but that's still such a long way away you can't even look at it.

Victini has a pretty good movepool for TM's so you might as well us them until you gt some better attacks later... Here's a few: Retaliate, Grass Knot, Thief,and Rock Smash. Switch them around to your liking, but definitely keep its default Confusion. Later on in the game, some good offense moves are Fire Blast (definitely, although lack of PP hurts), Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, Brick Break, Charge Beam, and Focus Blast, while some good defensive or support moves to consider are Sunny Day (works great if you throw in SolarBeam!), Light Screen, Thunder Wave, and Substitute.

Victini has access to its better moves like Psychic, Flamethrower, and Psyshock after you've beaten the game.

Victini's stats and diverse movepool make it an incredible Pokemon throughout the game. Though it does level up rather slowly, it can fall behind in levels and still be more effective than probably any of your Pokemon, particularly early on in the game. It's arguably too good to use in-game, and some people have a stigma about using legendary Pokemon while playing through the game, so consider that before considering whether or not you want to let Victini pave your way to victory.
