My favorite Normal-type Pokemon? There are so many... but if I had to choose one, it got to be Braviary, because I love how it looks, and it looks strong too!

Hey everyone! I'm back and ready to quote everyone!! :cer_boogie:

Quote originally posted by Khawill:
Name: Khalil (Khawill)
Pokemon: Maka the Stoutland, Linoone, Swellow, Delicatty, and Slaking (The last three I beat the elite four with in sapphire.)
Reason: Normals are extremely versatile and have one of the most powerful moves in the game, Return. A move that gets better the longer you play with them. Additionally they can learn a move from each type!
I always capture the first few Pokemon and use them as my main team. Since I'm a heavy grinder it doesn't matter who I play much and I enjoy the versility of normal types.
Favorite move: Return and Frustration (Frustration is always put on traded Pokemon.)
Welcome to the club! I do agree its awesome normal types have the dynamic abillity to use basicallt all the other elemental types.
However as it states in the club rules you are limited to only tree partner pokemon. I put Stoutland, Linoone, and Swellow next to your name on the member list. If you desire a change, tell me and I'll get on it ASAP.


Quote originally posted by AlexOzzyCake:
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Name them! I can think of 3 and two are terrifying, so I'm really curious to see which Pokémon you're digging on! If I agree I'll give you a cookie. BUT ONLY IF. I just don't really see Normal types as being that tough or scary I guess, it'd be interesting to see which ones you see this way.
Basically alll the tough looking ones, bulky ones, or power houses. Such as , Stoutland, Granbull, Boufalant, Exoloud, Slaking, Tauros, and Braviary.

Quote originally posted by Hikari10:
I love Miltank cos of how funny I found the memes that spawned from Whitney's Miltank.
o3o what memes would that be?


Quote originally posted by Eeveelution Co-ordinator:
Hurray! I would like to name my Watchog Lux, as it means 'light' in Latin.
Done! :>

Quote originally posted by Wind Heart:
I'll vote for Eevee as featured Pokemon in this club as well!
So much eevee

Quote originally posted by AlexOzzyCake:
These are the bits I don't understand - why do either of these things make it such an amazing Pokémon? These traits certainly make it unique, but does that make it better than other Pokémon? It's definitely an interesting Pokémon but I really don't get why it's universally adored so much more than other Pokémon. I seem to be alone in this thinking though haha.
I've kinda wondered why the eevee super fanbase is so ginormous too at times.


Quote originally posted by Eeveelution Co-ordinator:
My favourite Normal Type would have to be Bidoof surprisingly, as it was one of my strongest Pokemon on my Diamond (Sure, it became ugly and gained more weaknesses when it evolved, but who cares).
...I actually find Biberal to be really cute. Like a big teddy-beaver. I really started liking Biberal when I saw it in a pokemon adventures manga I was reading.

Answering Topic:
Well to answer the topic and Olli's question at the same time; I love Ursaring so much cuz hes so unbearably awesome! Ok more seriously, bears are my favorite animal. And Ursaring has it all; Hes tall, a powerhouse, decent bulk, and two great abillities. Paul's Ursaring in the anime shows just how strong Ursaring could be.
Fun Fact: Nothing short of heavily defensive rock, steel types, or a ghost type can avoid being 1 or 2HKO's by Swords Dance, Guts boosted facade from Ursaring. However ursaring has Close Combat and Crunch to deal with the afformentioned types.

If Teddiursa was a starter in a spin-off i'd be overjoyed.
Spoiler:
Plus I get to use alot of bear puns


In Conclusion!! :

I like using Ursaring in battles as well! At the moment, in the Fortune Cup for Pokemon Showdown, my main Poke is Ursaring with Facade, Close Combat, Crunch and Swords Dance, holds a Flame Orb and has the ability Guts!

I get too scared using Ursaring in battle, the whole 'Inflict with status = power!' thing scares me since I'm always certain it'll die ;; Plus I never understood the whole Burn/Guts thing - does Burn's reduced attack still come in to cancel out Guts' boost and make the whole thing neutral or does Burn's reduction go completely? That is one cool thing about Normal types though, it's one of the only types to get some of the more interesting moves like Facade. I can't think of many other types with moves that niche.

@AlexOzzyCake. Well yea your right. Ursaring on a timer since it needs status. But anwering your question, burn negates the attack drop and boosts attack. However I prefer quick feet and toxic orb, which give Ursaring much needed speed.

Name: Umbr30n
Partner Pokémon: Porygon-Z, Arceus and Togekiss.
Reason For Joining: I've always been interested in Normal Types, and I am usually curious about what Normal Types would come next. Normal Types have quite a number of good Pokémon who have great move-pools.
Favourite Move: Giga Impact
Current Topic: What's your favourite Normal Pokemon? For me it's Porygon-Z. I don't know why, I just like it much more compared to others. It has an interesting Pokédex entry, and from its history, a Porygon2 that had gone too far in development. Also, Adaptability is VERY useful to hit hard with moves like Hyper Beam.

What's your favourite Normal Pokemon?

It would probably have to be Cinccino, it's cute but it's pretty strong in battle with the combination of multi-strike moves and some handy abilities in the form of Skill Link and Technician. Skill Link makes all of its multi-strike moves always hit 5 times, which can be deadly in the correct situation. Technician is not shabby either thanks to giving its 60 base power or less attacks a 30% boost in power, effectively making Tail Slap hit really hard. It's also a pretty big threat in competitive battling when trained effectively.

Oh yeah, I prefer Hyper Beam 'cause you can make it OP with only a few Nasty Plots (You can of course make Tri Attack more powerful but Hyper Beam is the powerhouse here). And Zap Cannon is very useful too.

As for Togekiss, it is a decent Pokémon. It has a low Move-Set, but the moves that it learns are all awesome. They're pretty much all you need already for going on a Pokémon League challenge alone. I, when I train, usually avoid teaching it Physical Moves (Except for ExtremeSpeed), mainly because it's not very good at them. ALSO, being a Tank is a huge plus to this. Being able to take hits from Pokémon such as Garchomp (Strong and fast, and comes from the same generation) is quite rare. To do this, the defender can't just be any tank. It should be a good tank. Other than that, if your Togekiss has Super Luck then it's a whole lot better.

About Arceus, (I have no reason for this) I seriously don't know. Although most Normal-Types were cool, I just didn't think of anything else to pick.

Favourite Normal type? Uhh... Is it bad that I joined this club with no idea which my favourite is? ;; I love Togekiss for the reasons that I posted in the SU, but I'm not sure I'd call it my favourite... Perhaps Teddiursa? That's incredibly cute and was my first ever shiny, so it'd rank pretty highly... Or I am a huge fan of Buneary too, I've loved that Pokémon ever since seeing Dawn's, it's such a cutie and has a really cool personality! But favourite? Hmm... This is why I've put off answering the topic ahhh, I have no idea I'm sorry! I think I'll have to go with both Buneary and Togekiss because they both mean a lot to me and they're both (moreso buneary) cute as heck! I think Togekiss is a lot more useful, but both Buneary and Lopunny have some 'unique' strategies to use with their quite strange move set/ability combinations (okay basically they can just hurl flame/toxic orbs at things without getting effected themselves and then act as a cute meat shield to get a free switch in - not the best thing ever but kind of cool!), so I guess it's a tie. :D

@AlexOzzyCake I know what ya mean. My entire list of favorite pokemon often times fluctuate randomly depending on how i'm feeling. Sometimes I just cant decide! Like how if it wernt for Ursaring being so awesome, my favorite normal type would switch every time I think about it.

But in reference to Togekiss, I absolutely love using it in battle. It rivals Jirachi in hax levels. Thunder wave + air slash + serene grace(double flinch chance) = flinch, flinch, flinch opponent KO

Partner Pokemon: Evy the Eevee ,Lax the Snorlax and Bear the Ursaring.
Reason for Joining: I love normal types, really. They only have 1 weaknesses, and they're very useful, my Togepi on Heart Gold was the only one who could learn fly, and it was thanks to my Ursaring that I could defeat Clair, Misty and Blaine. Eevee was my most used PKMN and I love Snorlax because it has great stats except for its speed.
Favorite Normal Type Move: Hyper beam.

My favourites are Pidgey and Ursaring, hence why they're my partners :/ Already explained why they're my favourites, so I guess I can just go with one of my other favourites.

Back in the day when I used to really obsess over Pokemon, back when FR/LG were still relatively new, I decided to go through a second playthrough of my Leaf Green. I had nothing planned out when it came to which Pokemon to use and such, so I just went along with what I found and wanted to use. I chose my Bulbasaur and went on my journey, (and oddly enough I didn't catch a Pidgey). I relied on my Bulbasaur all the way up to Mt. Moon, where it finally changed. I don't know why I wanted to catch it, since it was a Pokemon that never appealed to me, but for the first time I could remember, I encountered a Clefairy in there. I decided to catch it and try it out, and I wasn't really surprised. I realised I had a Moon Stone though, and evolved it into Clefable soon after (mind you, despite being a huge fan, I wasn't very good when it came to actually organizing teams and such), and it turned out amazing. I got to know it really well, as I went through nearly the whole game, through all the gyms and a few of the E4 members, with only my 'saur and Clefable. Even though I haven't used one since, I really loved it through that playthrough, with all the times it saved me, which is why it will remain at the top of my list.

Sorry about the inactivity folks.

Anyway I wanna welcome CHoas Fork and Ultimate PKMN Trainer Red to the Club!

I'm glad everyone is realsing the awesome-osity of normal types!

And i'm not surprised that an increasing trend of favorites are sprouting from in game experiences, which is awesome! Sometimes theres so many cool normal types in one region that I have a delima making my team (ex. HG = Tauros and Lickilicky)

Lastly, I wanna remind all that has not voted on a featured pokemon for the club do do so, cuz I will start counting the votes in a couple days.

Wanting to join this cause I was wondering why there wasn't a Normal-type club in the first place.
Name: AWsquared
Partner Pokemon: Wigglytuff, Mincinno ,and Braviary
Reason for Joining: For being such am expansive and interesting type containing many animals
Favorite normal type: I would have to say Wigglytuff and Braviary. Wigglytuff because the Guildmaster in Pokemon Mystery is such a cool character. I like how he's so easy going and calm and yet can have a temper when pissed off. Reminds me of myself sometimes. And Braviary is also my favorite flying type. From the moment he was introduced I just it's the coolest flying type ever.

I think snorlax should be the featured poke of this club. It looks normalish and original. Most of its moves are normal too

I also changed my opinion on favourite normal type. It's Zangoose. Why? It looks like Kratos from the God of War series!!!

Welcome aboard AWsquared!

Well, anyway, now that we've all established what we most like about normal types, I'd like you all to post What you dislike most about normal types and which normal type do you like the least? A bold topic I know, but every types has its ups and downs, and I'd like to see what you guys think.

Edit: Just realizing I have posted 10 times (OP doesn't count for me), I shall grant myself the first simple vanilla star next to my name

Alright
I don't like normal types mainly because their design. They're too weak looking.
Time for a shocker. My least favorite normal type is Arceus. It's way too overrated. It says that it's the only poison type legendary. IT'S NOT. IT'S A FREAKING NORMAL TYPE. Also, I hate Smeargle too. Bulbapedia itself hypes over it too much. Every single move in gen 2 shows smeargle using it.

Partner Pokemon: Loopy the Lickilicky (the ultimate staller when it comes to Curse -> Rest -> Sleep Talk -> Dragon Tail -> Repeat!), Alex the Arceus (it makes Arceus sound all cute and little, but oh hell naw') and Teddy the Teddirusa (too cute, I can't breath).

Reason for Joining: I've been talking to a friend at the Pokemon Showdown! server and he said to make friends, I think you should join up with a club. So here I am, signing up!
Answer the current topic: Probably the fact that they are super effective against nothing which is a shame but they are so cute and every Pokemon most have the good points, and the bad points.

Favorite Normal Type Move: Sleep Talk, why? Because it is the holy move that helps Lickilicky survive! :D

Also a message to the Club founder, your signature is adorable!

Hey, welcome to the club!!

Its super cool that you decided to join cuz we'r all friends here. :cer_nod: And also, I see you like Lickylicy! I have a similar set, but mine goes like Protect, Heal Bell, Wish, and Dragon tail. Beast cleric/team supporter ftw!

As for you're answer to the topic, I very much so agree its kinda lame normal isnt super effective against any time. But hey, its normal. Whatya gunna do?

I guess another thing would be that most of the normal type lack certain stats or better sets of options that give them a hold of a good niche in higher tiers.

I personally dislike the fact that Normal types can't hit Ghost types with the Normal-type move.
The least liked normal Pokemon for me would be Slaking (because of Truant ability).

I personally don't mind that Normal moves aren't super effective against anything, I find that the usual huge diversity of Normal types is usually enough to compensate for it. Plus they hit hard against a lot of things and without too much resisting it and are quite often granted a STAB boost, so I don't think they have it that badly off. Obviously it'd be nice if they were super effective against something, but I quite like the uniqueness of the type as it stands.

I just realised that I can vote in the featured Pokèmon (Arceus, right?) and my opinion/vote on it is - it's awesome! In my current Ubers team it is an awesome gels and when I went to Smogon last night, as soon as I set up 2-4 Calm Minds, tree was so many people raging and leaving! ;3

Also, opinions on my new signature? :D

New Topic idea! : What is the strongest normal type in your opinion? :D
