Just trying to get a few different views on each generations top pokemon. You can list them with a reason. I just really want to see if a lot of lists are similar.
Mine:
Gen 1: Starmie- Super fast and very versitile.
Blastoise- My first pokemon.
Gen 2: Heracross- Very strong and a reliable in game pokemon.
Raikou- The overlooked legendary dog but the fastest.
Gen 3: Breloom- Does Breloom really need an explanation?
Castform- Can be a really reliable in game pokemon that has great coverage and a decent Sp. Atk.
Gen 4: Yanmega- I was already a fan of yanma and to evole him even better!
Heatran- Last gen 4 pokemon I found and I guess I saved the best for last!
Gen 5: Jellicent- My username says it all!
Scolipede- Finally the early three stage bugs are actually put to good use.

I remember seeing a thread where you pick one from every gen instead of two, but I'm not sure if it's still active or if it actually even exists lol so I'll answer this one.

Kanto: TOUGH BEANS Nidoking/Nidoqueen (I'm counting them as one OH WELL) and... Aerodactyl? Hard to not pick Eevee and his evos... but the Nidos look like they could beat anything to a pulp that annoyed them and Aero is the best fossil ever IMO.

Johto: Again, TOUGH BEANS. Uh... uhm... Tyranitar and Entei, I guess? Tyranitar I've loved since I first saw it, it's a dinosaur! Self-explanatory. Entei is a Guardian Lion and looks the best of the 3 wildcats IMO

Hoenn: INCREDIBLY TOUGH BEANS considering it's my favorite gen... Delcatty and Absol maybe? You probably all know my fervent adoration for Delcatty by now lol. Absol was tied for my favorite until Del surpassed it, but it still rocks. It's like a skinny lion/wolf/mythological thing with a scythe sticking out of its head.

Sinnoh: Eh. Luxyray and Lopunny. Although overdone, an electric lion is cool. Also Shinx is based off of Kimba which is RAD. Lopunny is just cute and cool at the same time.

Unova: Hard choice... uh... Sawsbuck and Mandibuzz. Sawsbuck is a deer, I love love love deer. Plus its Winter Forme kicks rump. Mandibuzz is ugly in a devastatingly awesome kind of way.

EDITED to fit within rules, gave reasons

Kanto: Blastoise, pure awesomeness and Dragonite, a cute strong dragon type, absolutely awesome.
Johto: Chikorita Line My favourite starters! Tyranitar So cool, and strong!
Hoenn: Blaziken Such a cool pokemon, helped me through a lot. Rayq uaza My favourite legendary.
Sinnoh: Luxray Coolas! Just Awesome! Palkia Another Awesome legendary.
Unova Haxorus One of my favourite dragon types. Jellicent Such a great tank, helped me a lot :)

Just my 2 cents.

Agreed on Nidoqueen Snowdrop, she's a beast :D

Gen 1: Ninetales (I have incredible bias towards it lol) and Venomoth (I feel it's an underrated bug, it has strong moves and you can use it in a technical way as well).

Gen 2: Umbreon and Houndoom (just going from experience on how useful they were)

Gen 3: Swellow and Manectric hands down, they're my favourites of their respective types for good reason haha :)

Gen 4: Honchkrow (such a beast) and Mothim (what can I say, I dig moth pokémon lol)

Gen 5: I've only just started my game so I can't fairly comment on this one yet :)


This was so hard lol, I left out starters and legendaries to try and narrow it down lol :)

Gen 1: Charmander because it's cute and Dragonite because it's cute and STRONG.
Gen 2: Pichu, because it's cute, and Blissey, because it's pretty and has lots of HP.
Gen 3: GROVYLE AND SCEPTILE THERE IS NO NEED OF AN EXPLANATION OF WHY
Gen 4: Turtwig, because ever since I saw the picture of Sadtwig...and Snivy, because it keeps its cool lol
Gen 5: Oshawott (duh) and Axew, because they're cute :3

(Pachirisu, because it's just my type of energetic little squirrel!)

I'm moving this to Pokemon Voting Polls, but keep in mind you cannot just list them. That's against the rules. Give reasons.

This is really hard, because I like many Pokemon from each generation.
1:
Ninetales. My first "favorite."
Raichu. I always liked it better than Pikachu, and I never understood why people wouldn't evolve their Pikachus.
2:
Azumarill. It wasn't really of any use until Generation 3, but I always liked it's design.
Noctowl. I'm pretty sure it's our only owl based Pokemon, and I love owls. I hope someday Noctowl will get an evolution.
3:
Absol. Absol was one of the only Pokemon I really like from this generation. I like it's design and it helped me a lot in the Hoenn E4.
Altaria. What a unique little dragon. I actually didn't really realize Altaria was a dragon until Generation 4. Anyhow, it's moderately powerful and it has a nice design.
4:
Skuntank. I really like skunks. At first I wasn't too big on it's design, but it grew on my after seeing it in D/P. Now it's one of my favorites.
Lopunny. There were tons of cuties in D/P, in my opinion. But Lopunny isn't only cute- it has quite an interesting movepool and can learn many TMs. I found that to be very great in-game.
5:
Cinccino. I think this little guy is a hidden gem, and it's overlooked a bit. It has an ability that makes it's signature move worthwhile. And it has satisfactory stats, with a good Attack. It's pretty cute, too.
Sawsbuck. Gen 5 had many nice grass types, in my opinion. However, Sawsbuck is very unique and it has an interesting move, Horn Leech. With the right moveset, Sawsbuck does great competitively and in-game. I almost always use it on my White teams, now.

EDIT: I'm changing my Gen 4 opinion on Lopunny. Glaceon is better. It is my favorite eeveelution and favorite ice type. It doesn't have a great movepool, but with it's ability and Sp. Attack, it's very usable and almost better than some of the other top-notch ice types. It also has a satisfactory design.

Just trying to get a few different views on each generations top pokemon. You can list them with a reason or just name them. I just really want to see if a lot of lists are similar.
Mine:
Gen 1: Starmie- Super fast and very versitile.
Blastoise- My first pokemon.
Gen 2: Heracross- Very strong and a reliable in game pokemon.
Raikou- The overlooked legendary dog but the fastest.
Gen 3: Breloom- Does Breloom really need an explanation?
Castform- Can be a really reliable in game pokemon that has great coverage and a decent Sp. Atk.
Gen 4: Yanmega- I was already a fan of yanma and to evole him even better!
Heatran- Last gen 4 pokemon I found and I guess I saved the best for last!
Gen 5: Jellicent- My username says it all!
Scolipede- Finally the early three stage bugs are actually put to good use.
I've never really looked much into Breloom. Could you explain to me why you like it? I think it looks okay, but doesn't it have average stats and many weaknesses?

Gen 1:
Mew- One of my first favorite pokemon. Even though its concept is kinda disturbing.
Beedrill- I just like it...
Gen 2:
Chinchou- Very adorable (as well as its evolution) Nice type combo and ability.
Hitmontop- Lots of priority moves + Technician = Big trouble arrived. (Nice design btw)
Gen 3:
Beautifly: Both cute and creepy (Read its pokedex entries)
Altaria: Just... beautiful and kinda good type combo.
Gen 4:
Roserade: Nothing more elegant than a rose that poisons...
Magnezone: It is very useful in-game as I quickly learned in B2W2.
Gen 5:
Victini: My new favorite legendary. Adorable and weird typing, but still good.
Golurk: A flying statue. That has Iron Fist as one of its abilities.

Gen 1 - http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/006.gif and http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/149.gif Charizard is probably one of strongest starters that ever lived and I'm sure many other people will aggree with me. Dragonite is very strong dragon pokemon that could beat anyone unless faced against ice type.
Gen 2 - http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/157.gif and http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/248.gif Typlosion is starter I always chose in 2nd generation games and it can be quite strong. Tyranitar as any rock type monster is very strong, but it's Dark part makes it even more strong.
Gen 3 - http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/306.gif and http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/373.gif Aggron is defensive tank against almost any pokemon and it is quite hard to beat due all the resistances. Salamence is basically same case as Dragonite.
Gen 4 - http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/445.gif and http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/475.gif Garchomp is probably most powerful pokemon I ever owned. It beats almost anything. Gallade is master of attack and if it hits then usually it's K.O.
Gen 5 - http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/571.gif and http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/612.gif Zoruark is the funnest pokemon of all, it can transform into anything just like ditto and yet it doesn't look like a chewing gum. Haxorus yet another strong dragon pokemon which beats everyone in it's path.

Gen I: Blastoise and Jolteon. Blastoise has those huge cannons on its back and Jolteon is fast and strong.

Gen II: Feraligatr and Tyranitar. I used Feraligatr in HG and liked it; Tyranitar has good stats and an equally good move pool.

Gen III: Swampert and Salamence. Same reasons as Feraligatr and Tyranitar.

Gen IV: Gallade and Lucario. Both have good stats and movepools.

Gen V: Excadrill and Samurott. Sand Rush Excadrill is fast and strong, while Samurott is just plain cool in general, probably because it keeps its swords in its forelegs.

Breloom does have average stats except its attack stat. Its attack can max out at 394 combine this with its new technician ability with mach punch and bullet seed it can reek havoc on any team. That said it takes devotion to train because it takes 1,640,000 exp. to reach lv. 100.

Gen 1: Vaporeon - My favorite pokemon and very useful in my opinion
Venusaur - My favorite starter

Gen 2: Noctowl - It's an owl.
Furret - Can learn lots of TMs

Floatzel - Great attack

Gen 5: Samurott - Favorite starter of this region and its a Samurai

Generation 1 -
Growlithe - Don't know why I love it so much but I do.

Umbreon - It is just pure awesomeness
Lanturn - Water and Electric, What is not to like?

Generation 3 -
Slaking - I was surprised at the power it had because it was weak as a Slakoth
Walrein - Like with Growlithe I just really like it for no reason.

Generation 4 -
Luxray - the design of it is really good, and it can be quite strong.
Munchlax - I have always liked Snorlax so this was quite nice too have.

Generation 5 -
Gigalith - Roggenrola was the first Pokemon I 'Caught' in Pokemon white.
Braviary - Much like with Machamp it Pretty much won the league for me.

I'm going to write down evolution lines (if applicable), because in most cases I don't prefer one evolution over the other.

Gen I
Butterfree line - Butterfree became my most used Pokemon in HeartGold, after neglecting it for so many years. It was also one of my most sought after Pokemon cards as a kid, and my cousin got me a Japanese Butterfree card well before the Jungle set even came out in North America (still have it in my binder to this day).
Pidgeot line - A Pidgeot has always been a member of my Pokemon teams for as long as I can remember. I see this as a case of being 'Old Reliable' rather than neccessarily being one of my favorites.

Gen II
Heracross - Once I found a shiny Heracross, it became one of my go-to Pokemon in HeartGold (still the second most used Pokemon on my team)
Unown - For battling, I don't think there's any denying that Unown are downright terrible. But for some reason, I've always found all of them very interesting, and to this day I'm still not so sure why I like them.

Gen III
Aggron line - Aron was the first Steel type that I can actually remember using, and it came up big for me many a time while playing on Sapphire. Now any time I go back and replay the game, I have to have an Aggron on my team.
Rayquaza - Probably my favorite legendary. I really like the design of it (especially it's shiny sprite), and it's one of the few legendary Pokemon I can actually remember using in my party.

Gen IV
Empoleon line - The Water/Steel typing of Empoleon has to be one of my favorites I've ever used. I don't normally use starter Pokemon all that often, but this was one of those exceptions.
Froslass line - While it's pre-evolution came from Gen III, Froslass was my favorite Gen IV Pokemon, again with another unique typing of Ice/Ghost. It is now one of my powerhouses on HeartGold.

Gen V
Sigilyph - I knew that right off the bat I wanted a Sigilyph in my first playthrough of White, and has it ever helped me out. Even though I haven't beaten the game yet, it is the strongest of all my Pokemon, and has gotten me out of a number of tough situations.
Simisear line - I never expected to use my Simisear as much as I have, but it is another Pokemon that has gotten me out of a bunch of tough battles. While I'm sure that these two might change after I finish with the game, they have been my favorites so far.

This is going to be tuff since there is few pokemon I don't like. But I will try and decide between two.

Gen I

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/009.gif - Blastoise always appealed to be for several reasons. I like the design with the water cannons, I like turtles especially back then when Teenage Mutation Ninja Turtles was on and I was a huge fan. Then couple that with it being the mascot of one of the games and that Gary had a Blastoise I liked it and still do a lot.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/094.gif I've loved Gengar from the opening scene of the game and anime vs. Nidorino. It has always appealed to be, even with the simple design it just looks "cool" to me. Not to mention it has an excellent movepool and stats, so I always found it very useful in my playthroughs.

Gen II

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/181.gif - I have never really been one to gush over cute stuff but for me Ampharos is a combination between cute & fierce. I always found it appealed especially during the early portions of the game when I could make good use of it and then maintain its use which I plan to do in BW2. I have also liked its color pattern with the predominate yellow then the black stripes and the red gems.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/248.gif - Tyranitar always struck me from the beginning as pure badass. Then when I found out it was based off Godzilla & Tyrannosaurs I could see why. I always thought it had one of the most interesting, unique, and complex for the time designs for the time. As well it is one of the most powerful pokemon I ever used so it has great stats as well as a movepool too be. And Sandstream is also beneficial for the most part as well.

Gen III

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/257.gif - Blaziken is probably one of my most favorite out of all with Ty and Gengar being right up there. I have been an absolute fan of Blaziken ever since I first saw Harrison use it in the Silver Conference even before the third generation occurred. I was like "Wow that thing kicked Charizards ass" which was kind of awesome cause all the Charizard is the best fanboys were getting annoying after two Sagas. On top of everything Blaziken is apparently so good that it is Uber with Speedboost so the first starter to be Uber pretty darn cool.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/373.gif - Pretty tricky too pick a second fav after Blaziken since Third Gen is probably my fav if not my fav so I love so many of the Hoenn pokemon. But I will pick Salamence since it is my favorite Dragon type thus far. When I first saw it it seemed different type of Dragon then the rest which appealed to me. Then its diverse stats and move pool which can go from Physical to Special also interests me a lot, so I found the usability very well.

Gen IV

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/475.gif - I love Gallade typing, I always thought Medicham was a poormans version to Gallade. I love the slender and sleek design too it not to mention I liked the Psychical movepool it provided as opposed to its female counterpart.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/466.gif - I am putting Electivire only because it was apart of Gary, Paul, and Volkner teams. Like with Gen III I am a fan of Gen IV Sinnoh pokes. Magmotar also owned by Paul was very closed behind and a counterpart to Electivire so I like both of them pretty equally. Then Empoleon was a super awesome pokemon on top of being a starter. I love its typing, movepool the tms attached to it, overall it was just a great pokemon from start to finish. I always thought its Emperor Penguin design was amazing as well.

Gen V

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/612.gif - Much like Salamence Haxorus as well as the other Gen V dragons struck me as different but unique. Ever since I saw then pre-release scans I loved Haxorus. It is a great pokemon and the star of my runs in BW, so obviously for me it is quite useable.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/625.gif - I fell in love with the design upon the first time seeing in when the sprites were ripped the day of the game release. Bisharp instantly caught my eye and I liked it then and still like it now.

Hard to pick

First gen: Lapras definitely- one of my favorite water types and it has the design of the loch ness monster. Which I'm always a sucker for the dinosaur look ^^
Tough for me to pick between Cubone evo line and Sandshrew evo line- I love moles and I kind of do wish they gave Sandslash more moves, but I absolutly adore it's design, I know it's more of a mouse, but I always think of it as a mole xP. But Cubone is much more reliable and still has a great design.

Second gen-
Ho Oh- it's quite possibly close to one of my favorite legendaries. While playing my HeartGold game, it just feels that it fits the setting so well. The concept of a Pheonix felt like it was tackled perfectly. It was also one of the first Pokemon Ash ever saw in such a memorable scene. ;_;
For the sake of not adding another legendary, I'd say Slowking- Anyone who saw the second movie knows it's undeniably awesome xD

Third gen-
Sceptile- I had to include this one. Brought out Leaf blade to us grass types fans. Makes the ultimate frustration reliever to a certain psychic type duo we all probably all hate to fight. The design of it is simply incredible. And though I haven't watched Ash's adventures in Hoenn, I've always been interested in his Sceptile.
Probably Absol- Very cool mythological cat with a sickle on it's head, nuff said. B)

Fourth gen-
Leafeon- my favorite Eeveelution, has move-pool that overall works well with it's stats. And it has to be the most adorable thing I've ever seen :3
Shaymin- I love the concept of different Pokemon forms and I thought that Shaymin tackled it the best next to Giratina. The concept of it being a bouquet of flowers was really cool to me and it's sky form is just awesome.

Fifth gen-
Snivy evo line- It's a freaking snake, that's all that needs to be said. I also like having the idea of good speed and an amount of utilities it can use. It also to me introduced Snake Pokemon to the move Coil which is now available for the other two snake Pokemon which is awesome
Excadrill- YES! You finally got the mole right Gamefreak! 8DDDDDDD This thing is just freaking awesome! It's design, the role in the anime, it's moves, it's stats, just everything about it!
