whats your favorite pokemon type and why?

My favorite pokemon type is Electric..i think electric pokemon can be very troublesome at various times. They also have very good speed and agility and some of them are really cool. Take the pikachu tree for example.

Uh oh. Looks like we are going to be rivals because my favourite type are water pokémon. I think they have the most useful attribute that cannot only be damaging but helpful when needed to. Plus, I love swimming and water.

I like the dragon type the most. The Dratini-Dragonair-Dragonite is my favorite line of Pokemon. I've been in love with that line since I caught my first Dratini in the Safari Zone. I think Lance is one of the cooler characters as well. XD

Fire arn't that strong there weakness are Water and thats the most popular Pokemon type in the game =P. But the guy/girl you were versing could of been using crap moves.

Thats anothe reason why Water are my favourite they can be really strong at the right time :D.
And I always pick them for a starter in any game when I first play it.

Please keep all pokemon-related polls in one of the pokemon forums. OVP isn't meant for polls like that.

-moves-

And to answer the question, if I had to pick a favorite type I'd choose Electric. There are several types I like, but I've noticed that I tend to like using Electric a bit more than the others.

my favorite type of pokemon is obvious.......Dragon,my combo of lv.85 latios and latias:latias: :os: is the best around! i use dragonbreath and dragon claw, and sometimes recover.

Hehe...really hard question. Hmm...I like so many T.T. Fire and psychic. I like dark and ghost too...but they aint that great. Only 1 or 2 pokemon from their types are really strong.

I like Water and Psychic attacks. Before the movesets where people always use Rain Dance + Hydro Pump, I always used Surf on every water Pokémon I had for the power and accuracy. Psychic was devastating too, since I had Mewtwo clearing opponents easily.

nah.....surf,sheer cold,water fall,and dive aren't weak moves,buddy.....that just goes to sho how much you don't know about the power of flames.....like I said...in te hands of an EXPERT,.....fire is the strongest....boy,I'd wish there were some way I could prove it to ya...

While it is possible for an impressive fire pokemon to defeat and impressive water pokemon, the odds are still tipped in favour of the water pokemon whcih means the slight advantdge could make the water pokemon a better contendor.

The only way to prove if you really are the strongest is through battle with the best water pokemon trainer. My money's on water...

dragon pokemon can learn pretty much every single type of move. electric,fire,dragon,water, etc.
so it doesn't matter what type of pokemon you use a dragon type can counter any type of pokemon if it knows the attacks to do so

my favorite type is water

I guess my favorite type would have to be a tie of psychic, dragon, water

Mine Is Dragon By Far, Like latios said they can learn almost any move and they are very strong

my second favorite type would most definitly be water, because they have moves like no other.
my favorite water pokemon are mudkip,squirtle,and totidile.:t158: :t258: :t007:

Uh...geez, that's hard to say ^.^;

See, when it comes to favourite pokemon, types or whatever I tend to go by heart rather than by power ^^;

So, I'd have to say that my favourite type of all times is definately DARK ^^; Not to sound shallow or anything but they just all look so darn cool ^^;

Oh, almost forgot:
/Le sigh, le drool, le swoon/

I love doing that ^^;

Anyhoo, second place is for fire ^^; I do love my Charlie best and most /crushuggles him/

I personally like Water types the most. Not only do they have some incredibly sweepers, but they also have sponges, walls and (P)hazers, not to mention that they have many interesting type combinations, such as Water/Flying, Water/Ground, Water/Psychic and of course my favourite type combination Water/Poison.

Sharing the second place as my favourite types are Electric, Bug and Poison for reasons I I'm too tired to explain right now.
nah.....surf,sheer cold,water fall,and dive aren't weak moves,buddy.....that just goes to sho how much you don't know about the power of flames.....like I said...in te hands of an EXPERT,.....fire is the strongest....boy,I'd wish there were some way I could prove it to ya...
Fire isn't really as strong as you say it is. Not only are they weak to Ground and Rock type attacks (And almost every physical sweeper has a Ground or a Rock type attack.), but they often lack the defense to take down more than one or two Pokémon. You are in no position to call yourself an expert if you think Fire Pokémon can beat anything.

I'll gladly prove you wrong if you want to. Just download Netbattle and make a mono type (A team where all Pokémon are of a certain type.) Fire team and battle my mono type Electric team with it. No one has a type advantage there, so it should be a fair fight. Pm me if you're interested in a battle.

i still think that dragon type pokemon are the best because they have good combos in types like dragon flying, dragon psychic, dragon water, dragon ground, and i think charizard is a dragon fire.

Dude...Waterfall, Dive, and Sheer Cold are all pitiful moves which only total N00Bs use. Plus, Wailord royally sucks as water types go (I believe the only worse finally forms are Corsola and Luvdisc <<). So yeah. Besides, anyone who uses a water type against fire and resorts to Sheer Cold doesn't have a clue about what he/she is doing. If you took a break from pounding your N00B buddies and actually faced a competent Netbattler out there (Where level advantages are negated, mind you) you'd learn how much it amuses anyone with even a basic grasp of strategy when you call Fire types the best. With skilled battlers, I'd say Water trumps the most. That type only has two weaknesses which are Grass and Electric, Swampert and Lanturn nullify the Electric weakness abd a good amount of them have godly sp.defenses. I'd really love to see you take down my NB Suicune with a friggen' fire type. (Heck, I even a teamfull of them probably couldn't pull that off) If you do accept Shorties' challenge, let me know when you two fight. I could use a good laugh. Also, learn to use the full stop. Really, proper punctuation would make you sound a bit more intelligent. If you really HAVE to use the triple dot all the time, then at least keep it triple all around instead of jumping into quintuple and whatnot. <<

Ahem, on the actual topic; Grass is my favourite. There's a nice variety of type combos there along with several nice movepools. Plus, I just love messing up my opponents with status inflictors like Jumpluff. (Leech Seed and Jumpluff rock, if you disagree with me you're wrong. =P) And of course, that type has two of my very favourite pokémon in it. Yay for Cradily and Victreebel. ^0^ As a runner up I'd say ghost and bug. Ghosts are sorely underrepressented (Only six different species unless you count Ghastly, Haunter, Duskull, and Shuppet and two of them pretty useless too) and I like most of them. Especially Duskull...Duskull needs a hug, people! >O Ahem, the type has nice resistances and immunities too (Love blocking out Fighting and Normal moves). As for bug...so many people call them weak which is a faulty and demeaning stereotype. (Heracross and Forretress should be enough to prove that) The only ones who ever seem to get recognition from the non-competitives are Scyther and Scizor because they're supposedly "Cool" even though there are many more good bugs out there. << Also, I like Shuckle and Weedle and Caterpie, not because they're strong but in terms of appearance. =D

yeah everyone knows that no fire type can beat a water type, its just common sense. even if we werent talking about pokemon, fire still couldn't beat water.......unless it was like 200 degrees fehrinheit.

A good fire type can beat a Water type. -.- One Hidden Power [GRASS] from a good Fire type and it's bye-bye Swampert. Pwning Pokémon with an advantage against you, taking it by surprise is the best strategy there is.

And you just proved that you don't know anything about Pokémon games. Hidden Power's type and power all depend on the DVs of the Pokémon. It can be any type depending on the DVs. I suggest you just keep quiet if you don't know what you're talking about.

Alter Ego
August 4th, 2006, 03:07 AM
there's one thing wrong with you statement....hidden power is a NORMAL type attack.

Only officially. The type and power actually vary according to the pokémon's DVs. Because DVs are decided at random, it's pretty useless ingame, but in Netbattle (Where you can decide them yourself) you see Hidden Power on all sorts of pokémon because it is, as Shorties pointed out, an easy way to widen your type coverage and beat opponents who technically have a type advantage. Most electric types would be completely worthless without it. xP

EDITNESS: Nyah, looks like I missed Shorties' post there. It's true what he says, though, especially the part about not arguing about things you don't understand.

Hm my favourite pokemon type? Probably Rock and Ghost.

Ghost can't be effected by normal attacks and can eat dreams plus confuse and put pokemon to sleep.

Rock can; not be affected by thunder types and can learn fire and some ice moves. ( I think )

What's so odd about playing Pokémon online? -_- And if you haven't noticed, this thread is about your favourite Pokémon type, which means whether you're a pyromaniac or not has nothing to do with it. =_= Besides, you were bragging about how you pwned a sucky Wailord and a horrible Kyogre with Blaziken, and I don't think you mentioned anything about fire in real life. Oh, and once again: This thread is about your favourite Pokémon type, not whether you like real fire or not. <.<
