Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

Out of all the pokemon in the fifth gen I have to say that the Joltik line is my utmost favourite. It's designs are really appealing and the bug/electric typing is a big plus. I always imagine people getting shocked by tiny Joltik and I find it really funny.

For me it would be a tie between Cofagrigus and Reuniclus. I love the concepts behind them, an Egyptian sarcophagus and a multiplying cell pokemon...what's not to love? They're also great battlers. They served me very well in white.

I love so many 5th gen pokemon though so I have some honourable mentions:

Scolipede, Conkeldurr, Darmanitan, Oshawott/Samurott, Sigilyph, Swanna, Golurk, Galvantula, Volcarona, Accelgor.

There's no beating Cofagrigus and Reuniclus for me though.

Chandelure & Braviary are tied for my two favorite Unova Pokemon. Incredible designs, stats, moves, etc. Chandelure with one of the coolest type combinations there is.

Litwick. Its evolution line as well but Litwick is my favorite out of the three and favorite overall.

Honorable mentions go to the following: Joltik, Snivy, Petilil/Lillgant, and Whimsicott

Foongus! It's so cute the way it rocks back and forth and constantly smiles; I would adore to meet one in real life. The deadly spores are a turn off and the evolution into the gross Amoonguss is unfortunate but I adore Foongus on its own.

Cofagrigus is awesome! :D I loooove a pokémon with great defenses :3 And the fact that It's ghost type just adds to the coolness of this pokémon! Kinda scared for it if pokémon actually existed in real world :D

Excadrill, Samurott and Hydreigon are among my favorite Gen V Pokemon. Excadrill was an absolute monster in sandstorm, before being banned to Ubers, Samurott learns good moves and has good stats and Hydreigon's movepool is incredibly massive. That, and their designs are really good.

I'm a huge fan of Sigilyph. Gotta love the design, and I use it competitively from time to time. It was also a huge help during my white 2 nuzlocke, providing some bulk to my rather unimpressive party.

Hmm. I wonder who likes Zorua. . . and Zoroark. . . No, no, it definitely couldn't be me. . .

But I also love Deino, Zweilous, and Hydreigon, not only because they're super cute but because their names include German numbers, and I'm learning German. So when I realized that about their names it was just more to love. one two three~

That's a tough one. Oh, wait. No, it's not. I just remembered. Krookodile. I have a Krookodile, and her name is Rasputin. Yes, I know, koff~

You know how bad Krookodile is? She's so bad that all the bikers got her as a patch on their leathers, that's how bad. I like the claws, I love the sand, I love the colors. Krookodile is the baddest of them all, koffi~

ps: krokodil on the other hand is a horrible disfiguring drug that resides mainly in Russia.

I really like Chandelure and Jellicent, these two ghost types are so cute and I like their typings. I love that Jellicent has water absorb, and Chandelure has Flash fire. Defensively, Jellicent is great, and Chandelure has amazing special attack stats.

I really, really like Oshawott. I'm not sure if Oshawott's my favorite gen 5 Pokemon of all time (that's really difficult to say!) but I think it's adorable, and gets way too much hate. Dewott and Samurott are okay, but I just love Oshawott in its first form! So cute!!

I also like Petilil, Whimsicott, Purrloin/Liepard, Swoobat, and a lot of others I can't think of right now.

Jellicent for me! I just love everything about this Pokemon from it's design to is wonderful defensive niche. I first used Jellicent in-game and then later on my competitive teams and I have been nothing but impressed each and every time.

This is a hard one for me. If I had to just pick one, I'd say Scrafty. Having a duel dark/fighting was really awesome.
But some other favorites of mine are Serperior, Kroodadile, Carracosta, Haxorus, Volcarona, and ferrothorn

Volcarona (Very good design and powerful as well, with a unique typing) and Braviary (Great looking bird pokemon that's actually good in battle) are my favourites, but I only really like a handful more. Sorry guys, but I feel that this generation's pokemon fell flat.

Hmm...this is kind of a tough choice. I like Haxorus, as it's one of my favorite Dragon-type Pokémon. A favorite Fire-type Pokémon I like is Darmanitan.

Personally, I loved many of the Pokemon the Black and White introduced. Snivy and Oshawott's families really impressed me. Oshawott's being my absolute favorite.

Stoutland and Haxorrus were definitely some favorites too.

I completely forgot about Volcarona, koff~

I feel bad about it because I use it quite often. It's a fun typing to play with, the little fire bug, koffi~

It's kind of tough considering Gen V is my first Gen to play. But I'll have to go with the Oshawott line, more specifically Samurott since it can sure pull off a Swords Dance set as well as having sentimental value to me. Plus he's the first Pokemon that made it to Level 100 in my team, and that was just recently.

Worthy mentions are Chandelure and Conkeldurr. Chandelure has Flash Fire to go well with its great Special Attack, while Conkeldurr's Speed seems to be the only thing holding it back. It really is a good Pokemon to have

As far as legendaries go, it's a tie between Cobalion and Zekrom. My Zekrom wrecks anything thanks to its Adamant nature (that was lucky!) and Cobalion just stands out to me the most out of the four Swords of Justice.

Good generation overall.

Well, since Unova introduced more genuinely good pokemon than pretty much any other generation, it's hard to pick just one. Krookodile, Scrafty, Mienshao, Chandelure, Reuniclus, Hydreigon, Volcarona, Bouffalant, Excadrill, Galvantula, Escavalier, Jellicent, Golurk, Lilligant, Darmanitan... all great pokemon - good designs, good stats and good movepools.

But one personal favorite? I guess it would have to be Leavanny. It just has an air of nobility that really appeals to me. It looks like (and was obviously patterned after) a swordfighting cavalier (well... that and a praying mantis, which I also like). Bug/Grass is a useful offensive dual typing, and since I know how and when to switch, its weaknesses don't bother me, and it's got good speed and terrific attack. Mostly though, I just like it, and have from the first time I used one in-game.

Scolipede is awesome! Also Leavanny, Scraggy, Dwebble, Joltik/Galvantula.

I never like electric pokemon untill Joltik/Galvantula - My favorite elec of all!

Most Special Sweepers don't look like normal animals. Special Sweepers are often bizarre shaped alien monsters. Gen 5 Gave us Zoroark, a special sweeper that looks like a normal animal AND has a fun ability. And Volcarona is an AWESOME moth that fits the bill nicely.

ALSO - Trubbish and Garbador. They are actually good pokemon!

I consider most of Gen 5 to be my 'favorite' pokemon. The only pokemon I would blacklist would be Sawk and Throw, cottonee (whimsicott is fine). and Timbur's Line, they are just so lumpy - I wish there was a pink one with a floral design! Only those four stand out as bad right now. The others I love a lot.

Kyurem is my favorite Pokémon of Generation V. Its fantastic concept, overall uniqueness and great, intriguing designs make it a definite all-time favorite of mine. No matter which Forme I'm using it in, I'm always having loads of fun using it.

Some of my other favorites are Reshiram, Zekrom, the Kami, Hydreigon, Samurott and Volcarona. Really, there's so much I like about Gen V.

I like playing all sorts of ROM hacks, my favorites being Pokémon Altair/Sirius, Vega and Procyon/Deneb. If you don't know these hacks or have only heard of them, then I recommend playing Altair/Sirius or Vega! They're truly great games that can keep you occupied for a long time!
