Ah, the cute lake guardians of Sinnoh - aka Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf.

We have the yellow defender Uxie, the pink all-rounder Mesprit and the blue attacker Azelf, who reside in Lake Acuity, Lake Verity and Lake Valor respectively.

But what this thread is about is - Who's your fave member of the trio?

Vote in the poll and give reasons!

I'd have to say mine would have to be Uxie because I first saw her in Mystery Dungeon and I thought she was cool! As for the otheres they don't have any effect on me and I honestly can't stand Mesprit is looks ugly.

I'd have to say Azelf. It hits hard and fast, and it has a good movepool.

Gotta say Mesprit because it is commonly considered to be feminine and despite being a male, I quite like feminine Pokemon. Also Mesprit is so cute!
I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

I've opted for Uxie, on the basis that it represents the quality of intelligence. I myself can relate to it, as I'm more of a logical thinker and wouldn't make decicions based of my emotions or determination to achieve. I'll usually plan out a decision, and evaluate the benefits, risks and consequences associated before carrying out a deed. Appearance-wise however, Azelf and Mesprit (Azelf for me moreso) take the cake.

I went with Mesprit, purely for aesthetics. Although in general, I'm not a fan of the Lake Trio.

I used to like mesprit, but my favorite now is Uxie because I have one on my strongest team and she has proven quite helpful.

Azelf is by far the best. It has a great movepool and good special attack. Uxie is a good defender, but Mesprit is just like a bad Cresselia.

Azelf has better attacking stats and in general looks pretty cool. Uxie is pretty good defence wise and is the cutest of the three. I personally hate
Mesprits design and stats etc.. Like Jellicentfan said it's like Cresselia's weaker younger sibling.

In the end I had to go with Azelf for its better move pool and for what it represents.

Mesprit! It's adorable and has awesome stats for someone like me that loves using interesting move sets/strategies. I'd say Azelf is certainly most useful in battle out of the 3, but Mesprit is way more fun to use and it looks cutest by far x]

This was a difficult decision between Uxie and Azelf, they're both Pokemon I adore. I ended up picking the wise Azelf for a few reasons.For Uxie,it's sleeping expression is something that always made me smile, just how adorable it is xD! It's moveset and stats are decent as well. Other than that, I think it's design is just the best out of the three Lake Guardians.

Azelf, being the willpower Pokemon I just personally love. I'm a person who uses willpower often and would most likely resemble this beautiful Pokemon. Its design is also stunning, I personally think. All of Azelf basicially is different shades of blue, a wonderful colour I like.

Mespirit, isn't a Pokemon I like. The design is rather ugly, in my opinion and the choice of colours wasn't really my thing. It also frustrated me when I was attempting to catch it for my Pokedex in Platinum so I kind of loathe it now.

So yeah this was a pretty difficult decision, but I decided on the intelligent Azelf.

Its a split beween Azelf and Uxie, love Uxie's colours and its sleeping look. But I also love Azelf's colour scheme and its high Special Attack, really hate Mespirt because it was a pain in the ass to catch it. So I guess I will go with Azelf since its the only one that I used to defeat the Elite Four in my first run out of the 3.

Azelf. That thing is a monstrosity to catch, but it also makes a nice beast on your team. A ridiculous Special Attack + Nasty Plot makes that thing unstoppable if you give it the right moves. Like Psychic + Thunderbolt + Shadow Ball or Flamethrower + Nasty Plot has a wide coverage range.

Mesprit is okay, and has an appealing design, but is a pain to catch since it's a roamer. I've never really liked Uxie, design-wise or prowess-wise. So, Azelf easily, especially by comparison lol

Azelf. It's fast and a good attacker. Though Mespirt, while being the slowest of the three , gave me the most trouble trying to catch it.

I kind of like them all the same, I think they're good Pokemon but Azelf was the one I got first plus, becuse of Mystery Dungeon, I've been using it more and it's been growing on me.
