With the high number of pokemon now, there's a lot of pokemon that I've forgotten these days. =( Like for example, Crawdaunt...even though its a cool pokemon, I forget it even exists occasionally. D=

What are some pokemon you've forgotten or disregard about?

Anorith and Armaldo.

Nobody talks about them ... ever. So they're easy to forget. No one loves them, no one hates them. No one battles with them. I don't even know where you can catch them. LOL.

Poor Anorith and Armaldo.

Preeeetty much... all the baby Pokemon.
A buttload of the legendaries.
And most of the ones from Generation IV. xD

I <3 the Anorith line~ You get them from a Claw Fossil in the Mirage Tower in Emerald. ;)

It's difficult to remember Pokemon that are forgotten, because... they're forgotten. lol

I often forget about... /goes through lists
The Eggsecute line. And Baby Pokemon.

I admit that there are quite a few Pokemon that I reaaalllly hate...

But the one I seem to hate most of all, according to appearance is Garbodor. Who would design a Pokemon made from rubbish!

I don't really know. I guess Woobat/Swoobat would be close to disregard, but I don't really disregard any Pokemon. Since I've started competitive battling, I started considering every Pokemon. xD

I've almost filled the soul silver pokedex, so I haven't really forgotten any of them...

Some are more easy to not think of though sometimes, like Quilfish or Snubbull

To be honest, most of the Hoenn and half of the Sinnoh pokemon would be the ones I disregard. :T It's not out of me being a nostalgia-freak or anything, it's just it has pokemon that are easily forgettable to me. Not to mention I hardly played those two gens. I own the games, but I lost Sapphire, and Platinum is basically one huge pc to hold my legendaries.

Maybe if I played them more I'd appreciate the pokemon more, buuut yeah.

Most Pokemon I can't really remember offhand, even some of the Gen I ones - there was this Quiz on Sporcle that I attempted to name all 151 critters, and I only managed about 120... I forgot Paras, for heaven's sake! Bug types tend to get it worse, as I never use them, likewise Grass and a fair amount of Normal types are in a similar boat.

Although if we're talking specific Pokemon, normally it's the ones you're inundated with at the beginning, ironically, that seem to disappear from my mind. Your Zigzagoons, your Poochyenas, your Hoothoots. And Surskit. Especially Surskit, for some reason.

Well it's most likely the Hoenn Pokémon that will be the case, with the first two Generations, they will never be forgotton, the third however not many people enjoyed it and played it for that matter, and fourth has not long been and well fifth, is only new so the ones I forget are Pokémon like, Tranpich, Baltoy ect.

Masquerane (sp?)
I didn't even know it existed untill I was playing PMD2 and went to Serenity River or whatever, and I was like, "What the @#^% is a Masqurane?" and had to use Serebii to find out that it's Surskit's evolution.

Most of the time for me, it's the really random Pokémon that I generally don't have a reason to think about - Dunsparce, Snubbull, Spinda, Zangoose, Burmy, Combee, just to name a few. I'll know them when I see them but if you were to quiz me on their names, I sure as hell wouldn't remember them all. Obviously, one would remember the more common ones/the ones you see the most during the main storyline of the game more easily.

Oh, and sometimes I forget that Celebi and Jirachi exist, let alone the fact that they're legendaries. :x

It's mostly Pokemon that don't have any particularly interesting attributes, like Qwilfish, Spinda, Torkoal, Skurskit, Venomoth, Dusparce, Garbodor, Stunfisk, Unown and Sighyligh (or whatever its name is:\) If they're boring, I forget about them.

Not really. I really never use dunsparce, neither have I ever encountered it..

I have to look at a list, otherwise I wouldn't remember them enough to list them. XD;

-Ledian. When I look at it, I realize it's the evolution of Ledyba, but when I hear the name I'm just like "...what?"
-Pineco. I have no problem remembering Forretress, but you'd be hard pressed to get me to remember what it evolved from without a Pokedex.
-Lombre. I know Lotad, I know Ludicolo. But not Lombre.
-Vibrava. I have literally never heard of this Pokemon before, so I guess I can't technically disregard it, but that also made me realize that Flygon comes from Trapinch?!

Then it gets into fourth gen, which I don't know much about anyway since I never seriously played that gen.

I ignore Dunsparce on purpose. It's like the Pokemon version of Kuriboh, just less cute.

Most Pokemon after the Hoenn region :/. And even some of that too. Its just..THERES TOO MANY POKEMON for my brain to handle. I only ever remember the important ones past R/S/E because if I remember one, another one gets lost.. Plus the names dont really stick in your head anymore, Like Charmander, Chairzard, Venosaur, Blastoise, Pikachu, Pidgey...You get the idea. The names now barely relate to the pokemon itself. Take Haunter as a good example: Haunter. Its a Ghost type, it HAUNTS for freaks sake. Now, take Drifbloom as another example..Sure, its a balloon, and it drifts...So not too hard right? Now take Snivy as a bad example..What does Snivy have anything to do with the pokemon itself? *sigh* and so the names are just hard to keep inside my head. But if I saw the Pokemon, most of the time id be able to name it, or come close >_>.

It's a snide-looking Pokemon, that's long, thin, and grass, like a piece of ivy. That was a bad example. xD; A better example of what you mean might be Darmanitan, Cofagrigus, Emolga, etc.

Everything in 5th gen that I didn't actively train or catch a shiny version of.

All the baby Pokemon.

Those Pokemon that got really ugly evos in 4th gen (Tangrowth, Lickilicky, Ambipom, etc.)

Those guys like Dunsparce, Luvdisc, and Unown that are just... there.

I don't think the word Charmeleon has ever been used without being followed up by the word Charizard. See, once again there. Every time I think of Charmeleon, I think what a cool design, type of character, a general top class second stage for a Pokémon. Sometimes I think, if only Charizard wasn't it's final evo, then it'd get some much needed recognition for how cool it is.

Your opinions? Or any other second evo Pokémon who had their thunder stolen.

I know the reversed version of this: Sceptile. Many people think that Grovyle is much cooler than Sceptile, but I don't think so. Sceptile isn't that bad.

Arumus
April 20th, 2011, 06:54 PM
I always thought Grovyle and Sceptile to be incredibly similar in many ways, just the later more powerful.

Seeds Horizon

To be honest, I forget about Charmeleon. I mean, hes in the middle of two great Pokemon..Charmander and Charizard. Not that hes any less great, but you always remember the starter Charmander, and then its final Evo Charizard, so Charmeleon kinda gets pushed to the back. Of course, its a great Pokemon, and a bridge between a good Pokemon and an even better one. Im guessing people are like me, and sort of forget him at moments :/. I usually forget Grovyl/Sceptile/Treecko, since I only used them in one playthrough, and didnt really like them compared to Mudkip and Swampert..But I usually forget about the middle Evo of starters anyway >_<.

I usually overlook the second evolutions to most Pokemon, not just the starters. People always seem to remember the first evolution for what it can evolve into, and the final evolution for the power it possesses.

Come to think of it, I never gave the second evolutions much thought until I saw this topic.

I love Charmeleon I never forget it. I have placed an everstone on my Charmeleon and Used it through out the whole game i think its great.

You kidding? I love Charmeleon! He used to be my favorite Pokémon for a while way back when. I used to play the Petite Cup in Pokémon Stadium and use the rental Charmeleon to rip through every team. He was my best pal!

Wartortle is also a really cool second-stage Pokémon.

I think a lot of second-stage evolutions get overshadowed... Barring the "baby Pokemon issue", most Trainers seem to typically encounter Pokemon in their first stages. Not to mention that that particular stage is usually the "cutest", and so will likely be remembered for nostalgic reasons. If Trainers are intent of evolving Pokemon during training, the final stage will pretty much be the form that the Pokemon will spend the rest of its life in, and as a result the trainer grows accustomed to said final form.

Second stages simply serve as "bridges" for Pokemon evolution, and often times, they are just "resizes" of their previous or upcoming stages. Furthermore, IMO, many second-stage starter Pokemon past Generation 2 appear to be afterthoughts, just scaled down versions of the final evo with weird appendages or designs. I feel that Charmeleon is noteworthy, though, because Ash's Charizard first expressed disloyalty as a Charmeleon, and that was essentially the first instance of viewers encountering such a thing in the anime. Even still, Ash's Charizard was only a Charmeleon for ~3 episodes and grew quickly anyway, to this day being memorable as Ash's Charizard.

I guess the "intermediate" nature of the second-stage, not to mention the briefness of it and the lack of "nostalgia", "power", or "permanence" to it (along with some strange designs) seal the deal of second-stages getting overshadowed by other stages. I mean, it's weird to refer to a Combusken - you have only one more stage to go, and everyone knows it as Blaziken!

I like the second-ones of many pokémon lines. I used to keep a team of Wartortle, Charmeleon and Ivysaur on my Yellow game just because I thought they were so much cooler and not as intimidating as the final evos.

I agree they get overshadowed by their final evos or prevos most of the time, and that's sad, since many middle evos are pretty unique and interesting. Take Flaaffy or Nuzleaf for example. They aren't as weirdly clumsy as their evos or prevos, and look great! (yes, I think Nuzleaf look great)

April 21st, 2011, 07:03 AM
Well yeah, there is always exceptions to my newfound rule: The disappearance of memories of the second evolutions or TDOMOFTSE >_>. Like Pokemon who pop up often in battles with the other trainers, like In Gen V for the last gym, theres quite a few Fraxures, so im guessing later on not many people will forget about them, and then you have the awesome second evo Pokemon, but like that one guy said, now they are mini versions of their final evo :/. Like..Pignite. He just looks like a kid version of Emboar..>_<. Though I think in gen V its not so bad..Like from Servine to Serperior its a pretty big change, and I know I wont forget Servine anytime soon since thats the last time you see those cute little arms~ same with Dewott and Samurott...You got the otter ninja who then evolves into a water unicorn type thing...I think its just a matter of most people get a starter, and then all they think about is its last evo, so instead of thinking about its second evo they just focus on the last one as a goal, like tunnel vision I suppose *shrugs* all they see is Charizard, and they just sort of skip past Charmeleon, and so dont think about him much ^_^. Sorry if I confused you..Couldnt exactly put it into words >_<.

I don't really disregard any Pokémon. I suppose I forget about some Gen IV and Gen V legendaries. A lot of them seem pointless and aren't encountered under normal conditions. I suppose there is probably more but I can't think of them.
