Let's say GameFreak was going to opt for 155 Pokemon, to make the total amount Unova introduces to a nicer amount (or whatever reason you can think of!) This means one Pokemon has to be deleted from Unova's history - forever! You, as head of GF, get to make the decision (altho I'm sure that isn't what'd really happen, nevertheless...) Which Pokemon do you choose to remove from the UnovaDex? You must give reasoning, and it can't be just because you find it ugly, or something. Does it not fit in well? Does it appear too much? Was its design lacking in comparison? Was the idea behind it boring? etc.

Now make your decision :) Just don't answer the questions as a list!!
I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥

Hmm... a Unova pokemon...
Oh, yes! I would certainly delete at least three of them.
Like the Kami trio (landorus,thunderus,tornadus).
I mean, look at them!
They're like one retyped sprite!

I think they fixed that in B2W2 with their other forms, but I agree that they seemed really rushed. It's hard to pick just one Pokemon, because most of them are part of an evolution line, and to remove them would make those lines feel wrong, however I'd probably have to say Durant, mainly because I have never, ever even considered using it, and I would have to say that it's one of the most forgettable Pokemon in Unova.

I'd say Cryogonal. Pretty useless IMO, it just seems kind of awkward for it to be there. And barely anyone uses it, so IDK why it's there.

I would probably delete Heatmor cos it's easily forgettable and not to mention it looks weird. Also, it's pretty useless compared to other Fire-types due to being available so late in the game when I have a full team.

I never even considered using one my team cos they are just too forgettable. I only caught it for the Pokedex and left mine to rot in the PC.

Stunfisk. Its just a sad sad distant cousin of Chinchou

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.

That thing is just terrible. No good stats, besides speed, and it is just so annoying. It's not even cute like the other rodent electric types. It's just...there.

I would delete one of these if not all. Durant, Heatmor, Audino, Maractus, or Alomomola. I Just don't like them very much not because of the looks or anything, but because they are really annoying. Mainly Alomomola and Audino. The other three I come to forget about.

How can their rivalry be similar to zangoose and seviper's? One is an actual rivalry, where both hunt each other(Z and S), but the other is just a predator/food relationship. No durants are going to logically hunt down a heatmor.

Anyways, most people are using the "its forgettable" logic, but I don't really think that applies to a region that's existed for one generation, and is SUPPOSED to have rare/common pokemon.

So simply based off looks, I'd say Basculin. While I understand there is a need for a common/simple fish, common does not mean boring design. I honestly can't believe this monstrosity was approved for the game. It looks ugly/boring, and isn't that feasible for even an in-game team.

Trubbish & Garbodor: I mean, they are just bunches of trash... what in this world?
Woobat & Swoobat: It's not that I have something against bats, but we already have Zubat (oh! it sounds almost like Swoobat ¬¬), Golbat, and Crobat, Gligar and Gliscor (bat-like because they are flying scorpions)... I mean, so many bats that I would need to call Ozzy Osbourne to get rid of them.

Guys I said delete "a" Unova Pokemon, not three, or four... so anyone with more than one Unova Pokemon has to choose just one & justify that. So say you remove just Garbodor at one post, or just Trubbish, why is that the one you choose? etc. Seriously, I said 155 for a reason in the first post. :(

For the record, I choose Basculin. It's the least exciting Pokemon to find in the water and I'd rather have a sea of Frillish and Alomomola than have Basculin running around creating no excitement whatsoever. That's why I made this thread even!

To be honest, I'm going to have to go with Golurk. It's so slow, and always seems to die after one or two super effective hits, which every pokemon in Unova seems to have a super effective attack against it. Along with that, it comes too late in the game to be of any use, and it's head is way too small for it's body, so it's just a huge derp. Also, it can fly for no reason. So it makes me mad. Oh, and I'm stuck with it in my username due to me liking robots back when I joined.

So joking aside, in all actuality I'd have to say I'd want to get rid of Cobalion. I hate the musketeer trio, except for Keldeo, because they look like a human/animal creepy hybrid...thing. Plus, I'm not a fan of legends, and while their backstory is interesting, Cobalion is just the worst of them. It's typing isn't fun to use in game (for me at least) and it's a dissatisfying legend. So I'd choose to get rid of it (and either gamefreak can replace it or just have Keldeo be the other musketeer instead of Cobalion, I don't know, just get rid of it)

Escavalier. Its typing seems overused/boring, as well as its stats (very slow, bulky and strong). The design is fairly bad, and since it requires a certain trade to evolve many people don't even get to see/use it.

I would get rid of durant because it's weak, odd and make it's appearence only in late game so that nobody needs it.
Also, gen V is the one with the most cool bug pokemons, and durant just is not. {imo}

idk what Durant you're using, but mine was a beast.

Anyway, Zebstrika can go away...I wouldn't cry over it. I would not miss the "SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" sound it makes. I would not miss how disappointing it is. I would definitely not miss the Tumblr photos. We can keep Blitzle though. :)

Nah, I'm kidding. You can't get rid of this guy. Can you?

ACTUALLY, I want to get rid of Basculin because it appears a lot more often than Audinos, Magikarps, Zubats, Tentacools and Geodudes. It needs to go.

I would delete Emolga. Despite that it has good Electric/Flying typing and its cute looks, it is terribly annoying and has lackluster stats. Certainly not a choice for my team and will not be missed if it were to go. *shakes head*

If had to delete one single Pokemon from existence out of Unova, it would be Alomomola. Some of my reasons would be:

- It's not a part of an evolutionary line, so nothing would get messed up (even though pairing it up with Luvdisc would have made sense).
- Other than HP, Alomomola's stats aren't really impressive, and just middle of the pack really
- It's pure Water-type, which is hardly unique
- It has a pretty generic moveset compared to similar Pokemon

It really seems like it's just in the games as a filler, because there weren't enough fish-like Pokemon in Unova. Even then, nothing really stands out as unique or special with it, so I'd have no problem if it didn't exist.

This question is so easy for me. KLINK!!!!!

It's incredibly out of place and ugly. I'm also hoping that since I can only pick one, that I'll consequently take out the whole klink line.
