View Full Version : Opinions on Pokemon: Changed by me, MA, every week!^_^ POTW!

March 17th, 2004, 8:37 PM
OK! Here's the topic I was talking about, instead of the Opinions on: Salamence topic. Now, here's a place where there's a new Pokemon we talk about every week, chosen by ME and ME only, because I'm in charge of this topic, and things could get outta hand if I let other people do it. So, anyway, here's the opinions for......

VAPOREON!!! Lucky Vaporeons! :cheeky:

I like Vaporeon, especially since they have good stats. I like their figure, and their color. Also because they evolve from Eevee. All in all, I'd rate Vaporeon out of a rubric of 10, 7/10.

I like Vaporeon a little. Since it's an Eevee evolution, it helps. I don't like how it looks a whole lot, but it's ok. It can learn some good moves too. My friend traded me a lv. 100 Vaporeon on Silver and it had very weak stats. I think that was because it was raised on tons of Rare Candy. :P

My rating: 7/10

March 18th, 2004, 7:39 PM
Actually, Vaporeon is my least favourite Eeveelution. I don't really like its looks. But its invisibility-in-water thing is pretty cool.

March 28th, 2004, 1:47 PM
OK, time for a new Pokemon! It is randomly..... BLISSEY! (Yes, I picked out of a big container, with every Pokemon raffled inside.)

I don't really like Blissey. I just don't. She's too weak.

March 28th, 2004, 2:40 PM
I dont like vaporeon... 3/10

Too slow, weak, idiot... 4/10

March 28th, 2004, 3:04 PM
WEll actually Blissey and Chansey have a whole lot of HP, but they do stink.

March 28th, 2004, 3:46 PM
I like Blissey... I don't know much about battling techniques and stuff, but it's cute and sweet, so that gives me enough of a reason to like it. ^_^;

March 28th, 2004, 6:01 PM
I love Blissey. It's a very cute Pokmon, but I do like Chansey better.

March 28th, 2004, 7:59 PM
Yeah, Blissey's cute, but how is being cute gonna help it in a battle? The thing is an idiot.

bleh, Don't like here. There are better normal type pokemon out there. (btw, I like vaporion, cause she was my very first eevee evo. She was my Ice Queen)

I'm sort of neutral about Blissey...I've had one on my game, but it hasn't done anything for or against me ever. I must say that I like Chansey better, though, mainly because in a battle between oldskool and non-oldskool, the former always wins. Blissey always felt superfluous to the game in general...but I suppose it's a pretty good pokemon...as I said I'm sort of neutral on it. I don't know what criteria we're all judging these on so...uhh...it is pretty cute, that's a plus...or something [shrugs]

April 3rd, 2004, 6:33 PM
Time to change! Randomly......GIRAFARIG!!!!

I like Girafarig. They're a pretty cool Pokemon, with good stats. I rate them 9/10.

April 3rd, 2004, 6:53 PM
Bah!! i hate girafarig i went to a zoo in michigan and you could feed giraffes (sp)

my hand got bit and i almost took a ride on it!! woooah hehe

EDIT:oh yeah rating...for its stats only 8/10

April 4th, 2004, 5:12 AM
o_O Girafarig scares me... never trust a two-faced freak XD

Ice Master
April 4th, 2004, 12:14 PM
It isn't one of my choices but it would be a good pokemon. IF YOU ARE NUTS. I never liked this pokemon.

April 9th, 2004, 7:51 PM
Vaporeon: it has a neat design and can learn some interesting combos now (acid armour, baton pass, wish). Yet being one of many pure water types makes it fade into the crowd, plus I'm sick of eeveelution's popularity. 6/10

Blissey: ... GOD I HATE IT. Unfairly high HP AND special defense, and and... I just hate it. Chansey should never had evolved. 2/10

Girafarig: Its stats are so-so, but it can baton pass some nice moves and its attack roster is nice. Despite the freaky tail, I find the giraffe part to be rather adorable. This Pokemon has potential for humor fics/rp's; imagine the tail talking and pulling on the head's ear when he disagrees, or whispering subliminal messages. 8/10

April 9th, 2004, 8:03 PM
Interesting thread idea, I wonder why I never found it earlier :\.

About Girafarig, when I first saw it which I think was in the card game I thought its tail could talk or even help in a battle, lol. I don't know, its stats are alright.. nothing impressive but I do run into them in the wild often enough. 7/10

April 10th, 2004, 6:33 AM
I think Girafarig is ok,he looks kinda cool, i caught a sparkly version on silver so it looked even neater. vaporeon was my first eevee evolution too! ^_^

Vaporeon: hate it with a vengnce. I don't like any of the eevee evoloutions except for Umbreon and Espeon.

Blissey: an odd pokemon that only has use for getting out there and getting hit. it is cute though

Girafarig: this is one I like. Like Espeon, it is a psychic that has the potental to beat Mewtwo. why? it learnes Crunch in the late lvls. go my dark using Psychic pokemon! too bad it doesn't evolve

Chairman Kaga
April 10th, 2004, 8:47 AM
I never bothered to train a Girafarig in the game, probably because I doubted he'd ever learn anything more devastating than Psychic...I supposed he'd just learn some generic Normal and Psychic attacks and that'd be all... He also creeps me out with his little tail creature, especially in stadium 2 because it actually moves and does things...

He's useful for training other pokemon you catch near the Lake of Rage though.

April 10th, 2004, 11:23 AM
I guess it's time to change now, isn't it?
Another random pick..... out of the jar..... its

My opinion on Tyrogue is that he is an interesting Poke. He only learns tackle, which is wierd, and evolves three different ways statwise! I have to rate him 7.5/10 on my roster. I think Tyrogue is kinda cute.

Chairman Kaga
April 10th, 2004, 11:41 AM
I like Tyrogue simply because I can breed him with moves that certain Hitmons wouldn't seem like they could learn, then choose which Hitmon to evolve him into. It's fun to have a Hitmonchan with Hi Jump Kick or a Hitmonlee with Dynamicpunch...hehe.

April 10th, 2004, 11:48 AM
I wish to comment on Girafarig:

Best. Psychic. Pokemon. Ever.

Cool looks, fairly balanced stats, and strong level-up/TM skills (Psychic and Crunch. Yipee). One of the only Psychic Pokemon other than Mew/Mewtwo that I actually enjoyed training.

Rating: 10/10

April 10th, 2004, 8:25 PM
Tyrogue. Being a fighting type and blood kin to Hitmonchan, he's one of my favorites. Stats are bad and he's not very versatile of course. In fire/leaf, he can learn EQ via tm, so that makes him cool. I rate him 9/10, minus one point because he's just not as cool as his sexy big brother, Hitmonchan.

A little comment on Girafarig moves... the best offensive moves it can learn are psychic, crunch, earthquake, and thunderbolt...

Whoops,a little late on changing Pokemon. This week goes to....

I think Crobat is scary, kinda.... he first time I laid eyes on it on Stadium2, I screamed and hid behind the TV. I didn't want to look at it whenever it came out, but gradually, I got used to it. Now I'm not scared. And I like the way it's stats are really good. I don't have one, though. :sleeping: I rate it 8/10 for me.

April 21st, 2004, 3:18 AM
I was annoyed with Stadium 2 I heard you could teach a pokmon one of its own moves and then found out I couldn't but anyway...

I hate crobat, in fact I hate the whole zubat series. They are weak and it takes too long to get a pokmon to love you to waste the time on a dumb golbat.

3/10-Its only redeeming thing is its high speed

April 21st, 2004, 4:40 PM
Actually, you can reteach moves on Battle Tower, Elite Four. Once you defeat them, you get to reteach them one of it's own moves. But only ONE Pokemon. ONE. I'm reteaching Emma my Umbreon right now. She needs to learn Confuse Ray.

April 21st, 2004, 8:51 PM
Crobat: obtaining one is the suxxors. It does have lovely speed. What's interesting about Crobat is his morph from annoyer to attacker in RS. Now that he can learn shadowball and sludge bomb, an Adamant Crobat is one you have to watch out for!
7/10; -1 pt for happiness evolution, -1 for its unappealing/boring design, -1 because I'm professor mean-bad.

April 27th, 2004, 12:48 AM
OK, whoopsies. Time to change!

Duhdalala! It's SNEASEL. :snea:

I like Sneasel. Even though it's not the strongest in the world, it can still kick a**. The type combination is interesting as well. Personally, my Sneasel isn't very strong. :sleeping: Rating: I guess 8.5/10.

April 27th, 2004, 7:00 PM
Sneasel... looks the best animated. Other than that, I find its design kind of ugly and the bad type combination clashes with its stats. Being ice/dark, it has a ton of weaknesses, and why is it ice anyway? Like I said, I only like Sneasel when it's animated in the show, other than that, it's meh.

April 27th, 2004, 7:14 PM

How can we diss one of the fewer non-poison type hazer in the game? With water absorb, this Pokemon brings doom to Kingdra. Haze is one of the best moves in the Pokemon game (really let's stop that ninjask before it baton passes, shall we?) High sp.attack with surf and ice beam... what else do you need? Quite high natural hp too so it can sponge a few attacks once in awhile. Withdraw and send it out again when a water attack is coming. Vapoureon in terms of appearance is the best out of all eeveelutions to me, plus all water types get a +1 in my book of course ;p


10^x * -1 = my rating of this evil egg

You dare to call this thing weak, and the whole battling community of Pokemon will prove you wrong. it's by far the most annoying thing on this planet excluding the even more ubarly-defensive Deoxy-L. I really want to know how will you survive if your physical attackers just got killed, and you're left to face a blissey with Alakazam, Kingdra and Porygon2... Have fun. No one likes serene grace with ice beam (do we need 20% freeze?), or a simple switch healing toxic...


It was only valuable in GSC to be the only amnesia-passer besides Smeragle... but now why bother when we have Gorebyss. Terrible stats in comparison to its other psychic friends like Gardevoir and Alakazam. Whatever Girafarig do in any department except for baton passing, either one of Gardevoir or Alakazam does better. Maybe in GSC it's better being capable to using both quake, bolt and psychic all at once, but certainly not in RS where you have to choose either physical or special.

Plus... Did I mention this thing is not ugly but very scary? That tail~~


Really i'm not a Tyrogue fan... not much use in battling, and it doesn't really look that cute either...


So except slightly higher attack power and speed, what else does this thing have? Do we really need to be weak to brick break and rock slide and HP Bug all at once? Ice type is just simply crippling this poor Pokemon... It's the only ice type that I dislike along with Delibird.
