Favorite Final Evolution Water Starter
what is you favorite final evolution water starter? please list the final evolved forms only, no pres... they are...


my favorite is Samurott

Nolafus August 26th, 2013 3:53 AM

My favorite has to be Empoleon. It has the unique typing and I really like penguins.

Altair August 26th, 2013 4:05 AM

Feraligatr has to be my favourite! I had fond memories when I used it in Gold Version, I was much younger back then...
I used it again in HeartGold Version, it really makes the battle with Lance much easier with it's Ice Fang attack.

KorpiklaaniVodka August 26th, 2013 5:02 AM


Water/Ground + 110 base attack does the trick for me. Well, in-game and in UU.

Savant August 26th, 2013 6:04 AM

I'm torn between Swampert and Empoleon.

I'll go with Swampert seeing as I've used him a lot more than Empoleon over the years. Although the difference in my heart is a mere nanometer.

Blue August 26th, 2013 6:07 AM

There's none I dislike, they're all equally awesome, although if I had to choose I'd probably sayyy Empoleon. It was between Swampert and Empoleon but I remember training my Empoleon to Level 100 and it being my third Level 100 Pokémon ever, both amazing Pokemon mind.

Talli August 26th, 2013 6:43 AM

my favorite has to be Swampert as it takes away the electric weakness being a ground/water type.

Castform August 26th, 2013 8:23 AM

As a huge fan of Hoenn like I have stated in the past, I am picking Swampert without hesitation. All 3 starters from Hoenn are at the top of my list. Swampert is simply amazing in battle with his great defensive typing and powerful attack stats. He is certainly a force to be messed with.

Pikachu August 26th, 2013 8:29 AM

In case you didn't see that first, I'll just link to this post here, justin.

On topic, I think all the final water starter evos are pretty cool. Except for Swampert, whom I think is so ugly haha. But it's pretty awesome to have in Ruby, so it's acceptable ;)

I have a hard time choosing. I like Empoleon for its typing and looks, I like Samurott for its looks too. But Blastoise and Empoleon are probably dueling for the 1st place in my head. I don't know who will win, probably one at some time and the other at another time. I'm not the one to never change my mind about stuff.

Sonatron August 26th, 2013 8:34 AM

Feraligatr and Swampert are both pretty cool, but I personally like Feraligatr better, mostly because I just like Totodile in general XD Swampert has a cooler design though

Poke Fox August 26th, 2013 12:38 PM

I had a tough time deciding between Swampert and Samurott - I like them equally, but since I like mustelids [otters are aquatic mustlids] a lot more, so all my glory goes to Samurott!

Katamari August 26th, 2013 12:57 PM

I would go with Empoleon because I used it in every playthrough of DPPt, though I do really like Swampert.

Something about steel penguins is just so classy, though.

Hikamaru August 26th, 2013 2:16 PM

Samurott is the real badass of this bunch, it's a samurai sea lion otter thing and again I chose it because of my heavy favoritism towards the Oshawott line.

KnockFan August 26th, 2013 2:34 PM

Easily Feraligatr. I mostly chose for nostalgic reasons. Feraligatr is the first Pokemon I remember evolving to the max as well as being my first possible level 100.

Magykx August 26th, 2013 2:38 PM

I chose Empoleon, for nostaligic reasons, though it is a tie for me between it and Feraligatr. I am always a sucker for Oshawott but Samurott just wasn't cutting it in comparison to the others.

Appeal wise, I would have to say Empoleon > Blastoise/Feraligatr > Samurott > Swampert

I've just never liked Swampert, haha. I always chose Torchic in the Hoenn games simply because Blaziken > you, but that's a whole other topic.

Snowdrop August 26th, 2013 2:41 PM

The Aquas tend to be my least favorites, but I still really like them all except Empoleon. It was a hard choice and I'm not really sure, but I picked Samurott. I like Blastoise and Swampert just about the same, though. Feraligatr is good, but I always thought it could use a more subdued color scheme. And Empoleon is just awful to me.

Lance August 26th, 2013 3:36 PM

Craaaaaap this is a toughie.

I'd have to go Feraligatr at #1, best Johto Starter in my opinion.

2. Blastoise
3. Empoleon
4. Samurott
5. Swampert. I've never liked it.

Dott August 26th, 2013 6:46 PM

Feraligatr is definately my favorite, for many reasons; they're cool looking, strong, and my feraligatr was the first Pokemon I ever owned, plus the first one I ever leveled to 100.

Empoleon comes in second, though, it just has a cool design. Swampert is my least favorite, its design kinda ruins it for me :S

Ayselipera August 27th, 2013 12:48 PM

I'm going to be boring and say Blastoise. I never cared for Feraligatr and I can't stand Swampert. Samurott is really cool looking, but I thought it was boring once I used one. The only other water starter I really like besides Blastoise is Empoleon. Which I find weird lol, but I hated Infernape so much and found Torterra to be soooooo boring after a while that I ended up using Empoleon all the time.

BubbleBeams August 27th, 2013 8:41 PM

Samurott > Swampert > Empoleon > Feraligatr > Blastoise

I really, really love Samurott's design which is why it gets my favorite vote. I also really loved using mine in my White version. Swampert is a very close second because I think that water/ground types are awesome. Empoleon is an easy pick after that because its steel typing was extremely useful to me in my Diamond run. Feraligatr and Blastoise are kind of tied for me. They just don't stand out to me I guess.. at least not in the way the others do.

Ash August 27th, 2013 10:11 PM

Feraligatr. <3 Cool looking, first starter I've ever had. First and only level 100 Pokemon I've ever had, and he still did a very good job on my team on Soul Silver. So yes, while a lot of it is due to nostalgia I just can't just not love this amazing creature.

After Feraligatr it would be the following:

- Blastoise
- Empoleon
- Swampert
- Samurott

Brendino August 28th, 2013 12:45 AM

As weird as it always seems for me to say, Piplup/Prinplup/Empoleon is probably my favorite starter family out of all five generations to so far. I absolutely love its secondary Steel typing, and I probably could've gone through Platinum with just Empoleon, and still done just as well.

As for the others, I would rank them Blastoise, Samurott, Swampert then Feraligatr.

kosuke August 28th, 2013 2:43 AM

Swampert! Basically because MUDKIPZ! haha.
and I really don't like the others except Feraligatr. :P
but Swampert > Feraligatr

XeroNos August 30th, 2013 2:50 AM

Swampart is easily my most favorite among them all. Because it learns moves like Surf, Muddy Water, Earthquake and Mud Bomb. Who needs another one?

warlockopain August 30th, 2013 3:10 AM
