My Raikou was my favourite. Unfortunately I totally messed him up because I wasn't aware of EVs and IVs etc so I just trained him through the Elite Four and at other trainers which gave most exp LOL.

My ditto was fun to see level up aswell. I had put him into the daycare center to breed the heck out of him. I caught him at like lvl 50, and he has been lvled up to about 82-ish just because of the daycare center.

That ditto must have loved his life. xD

Dratini ofc, it was hard training him but when he evolves, you will realize it was worth the training!

b) Dragonite: I remember when i obtain a dratini i trained him even in the end of the journey just for have a dragonite in my team. i like this pokemon since apeared he appeared in the orange islands.

I enjoyed training my Staryu and then using a Water Stone, making it evolve into a Starmie.

It may be a pain in the butt cheek to train, but once it is fully evolved, it's da' boss!

What is this Pokémon's type?
Only she knows, and it'll stay that way for a long time.

Pikachu, very weak physically but his Special ATK makes flying-types look like chumps.

1. Charmander
2. Bulbasaur
3. Pikachu
4. Dratini
5. Squirtle

All 4 of the Kanto starters are a joy to train up and the pay off you get after training up a Dratini is incredible.

I definitely find Dratini to be the most rewarding pokémon to raise, and also the most tricky. Namely because it's so weak in comparison to everything else when you get it, and although it soon enough evolves into Dragonair, then its most powerful move is usually Slam, with acts as if it has about 20% accuracy for me :/
And when I eventually get it to the stage of Dragonite, it's so fun destroying the fighting-type trainers outside of the Spa on One Island to get it strong enough to take on the re-trained Elite Four :)

Charmander's also pretty rewarding to train. It has a really hard time against gyms (you practically need a Charmeleon before Metal Claw can take on Brock) to start with, but eventually you get a Fire/Flying behemoth with good speed and both attack stats being usable. So after being weak to gyms 1 and 2, neutral against 3 it finds itself super-effective against 4, neutral against 5,6,7, and immune to the main type of 8 :)

In FR I'd have to say Geodude. Finally getting that to Golem felt so epic.

For me it has to be Electabuzz. I find it to be a real stellar Pokémon, defeating anything that gets in it's path. Mine had a moveset of Thunderbolt, Earthquake, Psychic and Brick Break if I'm not mistaken and it absolutely destroyed the E4 on it's own. It seemed quite easy to level up as well!

Honestly Tauros. I know that its power had been diminished since the old games thanks to mechanical changes, but I just felt awesome whenever I pulled it out.

Dratini and The Nidorans were my favorites. They absolutely demolished everything with their attacks.

There's really a lot of Pokemon I liked training because the VS Seeker was amazing and it really helped train all my Pokemon. If I had to narrow it down to one I'd say Charizard was my favorite when it came to reaching level 100.

A tie between Spearow and Dugtrio. .Spearow started as an HM Slave turned into my lead flying type. My Dugtrio only because of the 0_o moment I had when he learned Aerial Ace.

I always like to catch a Mankey and train it from the start, I use him to beat Brock and from there on keep him in the party. I always teach him both Mega Kick & Punch from the move tutors, even though this isn't really the best idea I love using both of those moves. From there on, Primeape will kill anything Charizard can't. It probably helps that Primeape is one of my favourite pokémon.

Abra. It is hard to raise it, so I just put TMs on it and it turned really fun. I played with it all the way 'til it evolved into a powerful Pokémon, Kadabra. Lol it was my best Pokémon. It grows fast and it has overpowered Speed & SP. Atk. The only dissapointing thing is that it needs to trade to evolve into an Alakazam but still, it is a freakingawesome Pokémon even without evolving into an Alakazam : >

Favorite Pokémon? Hm. Mine would probably have to be Gastly. Once I get the Sliph Scope, it's Gastly hunting time! I would give Gastly the most attention after that point. I would wait until it evolves into Haunter, train it to around level 50, and then trade it so that it would become a Gengar. Then, it's all-out pwning and awesomeness.
