whats your favorite pokemon type and why?

My favorite pokemon type is Electric..i think electric pokemon can be very troublesome at various times. They also have very good speed and agility and some of them are really cool. Take the pikachu tree for example.

Uh oh. Looks like we are going to be rivals because my favourite type are water pokémon. I think they have the most useful attribute that cannot only be damaging but helpful when needed to. Plus, I love swimming and water.

I like the dragon type the most. The Dratini-Dragonair-Dragonite is my favorite line of Pokemon. I've been in love with that line since I caught my first Dratini in the Safari Zone. I think Lance is one of the cooler characters as well. XD

Fire arn't that strong there weakness are Water and thats the most popular Pokemon type in the game =P. But the guy/girl you were versing could of been using crap moves.

Thats anothe reason why Water are my favourite they can be really strong at the right time :D.
And I always pick them for a starter in any game when I first play it.

Please keep all pokemon-related polls in one of the pokemon forums. OVP isn't meant for polls like that.

-moves-

And to answer the question, if I had to pick a favorite type I'd choose Electric. There are several types I like, but I've noticed that I tend to like using Electric a bit more than the others.

I like Water and Psychic attacks. Before the movesets where people always use Rain Dance + Hydro Pump, I always used Surf on every water Pokémon I had for the power and accuracy. Psychic was devastating too, since I had Mewtwo clearing opponents easily.

While it is possible for an impressive fire pokemon to defeat and impressive water pokemon, the odds are still tipped in favour of the water pokemon whcih means the slight advantdge could make the water pokemon a better contendor.

The only way to prove if you really are the strongest is through battle with the best water pokemon trainer. My money's on water...

dragon pokemon can learn pretty much every single type of move. electric,fire,dragon,water, etc.
so it doesn't matter what type of pokemon you use a dragon type can counter any type of pokemon if it knows the attacks to do so

Uh...geez, that's hard to say ^.^;

See, when it comes to favourite pokemon, types or whatever I tend to go by heart rather than by power ;

So, I'd have to say that my favourite type of all times is definately DARK ; Not to sound shallow or anything but they just all look so darn cool ;

Oh, almost forgot:
/Le sigh, le drool, le swoon/

I love doing that ;

Anyhoo, second place is for fire ; I do love my Charlie best and most /crushuggles him/

I literally lost all feeling in my legs at the very thought of Gary finding out about my horrible blunder. Well, to be perfectly honest, running at a maniacal pace for over an hour could have had something to do with the fact that I could no longer feel my feet. Seriously, to my knowledge you had to be either Forest Gump or experiencing some kind of a cathartic state of trance which is considered a sign from god by some jungle-dwelling pagan tribes to run like that.

I made a mental note to use the fact that fear for my pokemon had the same effect on me a cocktail of hallucinogen mushrooms would have on most people to my defense.

I personally like Water types the most. Not only do they have some incredibly sweepers, but they also have sponges, walls and (P)hazers, not to mention that they have many interesting type combinations, such as Water/Flying, Water/Ground, Water/Psychic and of course my favourite type combination Water/Poison.

Sharing the second place as my favourite types are Electric, Bug and Poison for reasons I I'm too tired to explain right now.

Fire isn't really as strong as you say it is. Not only are they weak to Ground and Rock type attacks (And almost every physical sweeper has a Ground or a Rock type attack.), but they often lack the defense to take down more than one or two Pokémon. You are in no position to call yourself an expert if you think Fire Pokémon can beat anything.

I'll gladly prove you wrong if you want to. Just download Netbattle and make a mono type (A team where all Pokémon are of a certain type.) Fire team and battle my mono type Electric team with it. No one has a type advantage there, so it should be a fair fight. Pm me if you're interested in a battle.

i still think that dragon type pokemon are the best because they have good combos in types like dragon flying, dragon psychic, dragon water, dragon ground, and i think charizard is a dragon fire.

Dude...Waterfall, Dive, and Sheer Cold are all pitiful moves which only total N00Bs use. Plus, Wailord royally sucks as water types go (I believe the only worse finally forms are Corsola and Luvdisc <<). So yeah. Besides, anyone who uses a water type against fire and resorts to Sheer Cold doesn't have a clue about what he/she is doing. If you took a break from pounding your N00B buddies and actually faced a competent Netbattler out there (Where level advantages are negated, mind you) you'd learn how much it amuses anyone with even a basic grasp of strategy when you call Fire types the best. With skilled battlers, I'd say Water trumps the most. That type only has two weaknesses which are Grass and Electric, Swampert and Lanturn nullify the Electric weakness abd a good amount of them have godly sp.defenses. I'd really love to see you take down my NB Suicune with a friggen' fire type. (Heck, I even a teamfull of them probably couldn't pull that off) If you do accept Shorties' challenge, let me know when you two fight. I could use a good laugh. Also, learn to use the full stop. Really, proper punctuation would make you sound a bit more intelligent. If you really HAVE to use the triple dot all the time, then at least keep it triple all around instead of jumping into quintuple and whatnot. <<

Ahem, on the actual topic; Grass is my favourite. There's a nice variety of type combos there along with several nice movepools. Plus, I just love messing up my opponents with status inflictors like Jumpluff. (Leech Seed and Jumpluff rock, if you disagree with me you're wrong. =P) And of course, that type has two of my very favourite pokémon in it. Yay for Cradily and Victreebel. ^0^ As a runner up I'd say ghost and bug. Ghosts are sorely underrepressented (Only six different species unless you count Ghastly, Haunter, Duskull, and Shuppet and two of them pretty useless too) and I like most of them. Especially Duskull...Duskull needs a hug, people! >O Ahem, the type has nice resistances and immunities too (Love blocking out Fighting and Normal moves). As for bug...so many people call them weak which is a faulty and demeaning stereotype. (Heracross and Forretress should be enough to prove that) The only ones who ever seem to get recognition from the non-competitives are Scyther and Scizor because they're supposedly "Cool" even though there are many more good bugs out there. << Also, I like Shuckle and Weedle and Caterpie, not because they're strong but in terms of appearance. =D

A good fire type can beat a Water type. -.- One Hidden Power [GRASS] from a good Fire type and it's bye-bye Swampert. Pwning Pokémon with an advantage against you, taking it by surprise is the best strategy there is.
