View Full Version : If you were a Pokemon Trainer...

June 18th, 2012, 1:52 PM
What 6 Pokemon would you have with you in your Pokemon journey? Without being silly and no legendary ones, and why? Also, who would be your most favourable (like Pikachu with Ash)?

My 6 would be:


These would be my 6 because I like to have a variety and a nice amount of uniqueness. Also, I love some of these Pokemon and I would enjoy being with them. In my mind Pokemon have personalities e.g Lucario being brave, Glalie being chill, Ludicolo being a bit of a joker etc.

As for my most loved Pokemon - Glalie. I am a big fan of Glalie and I see him (mine would be a boy) as a Pokemon with a fighting spirit along with a cute side, and I have always been a fan of Ice-types. Also, his size is always quite beneficial because you wouldn't have a Dragonite casually flying next to you as you walk from town to town and you wouldn't fancy a Dragon sitting on your shoulder. Another plus side is that he would cool me down when it's hot and when it's cold he can make me...even colder.

Why no legendaries though? :P

Well alright, I can see why the big ones would be messed up. But say you could include a single of the lesser ones, in other words, at most 600 TBS (which is the strength of Tyranitar etc aynway), not event-only, and not important in a plot(Mesprit..). Those that are barely legendary ie Articuno, Regirock, Heatran, Tornadus...

of course these are still some of the rarest ever, so you'd have to really devote yourself to find just one, meaning you wouldn't have more than one on the team.

Anyways, thats the rules Ill play with :P

This is really tough for someone like me though. Because there is basically no pokemon I dislike and Ive paid enough attention to each one at some time for me to like them all in at least some way. Like, I'd really really wanna fit Galvantula somewhere but Id have to ditch Ampharos which I just cannot do D:
Same for Torterra, Scolipede and so on... if there was room for a legendary, it'd be either Raikou or Heatran.


I think these are my biggest favs. I wold want so many other ones in there, but they don't beat the one thats holding their spot...
I got a pretty awesome and nice diverse combination of types there :D
If the team should have a good coverage, Id replace Gardevoir with Gallade, but Gardevoir is so lonely now when everyone uses him over it...
But for a team of simply favs, its as good as it gets :B

Notice how I didnt pick a legendary anyway XD... its just what Id have included if I made the thread.

June 18th, 2012, 2:34 PM
Going to kick this over to Pokemon Voting Polls since that's where it belongs. :)

June 18th, 2012, 6:37 PM
My team would consist of Gallade, Lucario, Porygon-Z, Archeops, Excadrill and Empoleon. It may be chock-full of common weaknesses, but those 6 are 6 of my personal favorites.

June 18th, 2012, 7:05 PM
Oh goodness. I'd be lying if I said I'd never thought about this before.

Imma have to go with:
Metagross (Hands down my favourite Pokemon. Why it's not everyone's is beyond me >.>)
Gardevoir (Seems like Gardy would be handy if I ever felt down. Plus I just like 'em.)
Eevee (I love potential. Eevee is fluffy potential -w- )
Aggron (The steel type is the best type ^_^ If you can't tell, I'm a Hoenn sucker too.)
Togekiss (It's fluffy. It can fly. It spreads happiness. <3 Togekiss)
Swampert (It swims. It used to be Mudkip. It's got cool fin...things. I like him. I named my first "Kipper" -w- Heavy Nigel Thornberry influence there. But that was eons ago when R/S was released.)

EDIT: No worries PlatinumDude. In the Anime/Manga we see a LOT of mono-typing. *coughEVERYGYMcough* >.> My selections aren't exactly bullet-proof either. If Swampert were to go down, I'd be screwed by a fire-type, and I can't set up Stealth Rock with this team. The only real similarity between this team and my competitive one is the use of Metagross. If Pokemon were real (give it time) I'd be that mono-typer. Steel, baby, steel. Steven Stone has nothing on me...except fame, fortune, awesome rock collection, travel experience, wisdom, and a snazzy outfit.

June 18th, 2012, 11:03 PM
I know that if I were really a Pokemon trainer, I would battle moreso with my favorites rather than worrying too much about weakness/resistance (although I'd stll try to keep a somewhat balanced team).

If I were to choose right now, my team would be:
Butterfree, Ninetales, Aggron, Empoleon, Froslass and Eevee (which I would eventually evolve into either an Umbreon or Espeon).

The Legend of Zorra
June 19th, 2012, 11:20 AM
I'd have to say my own team would be Honchkrow, Flareon, Golem, Serperior, maybe Lapras, and a Miltank would be helpful because we'd never be thirsty 8D

Honestly though, this is a tough decision. There are so many favorites.

Elite Overlord LeSabre™
June 21st, 2012, 1:16 PM
The same team that my self created trainer character Lisa has (and the same ones I have on Platinum for wi-fi battles):


This is a very type diverse group of Pokemon who mix it up between special and physical attacks. They're all final form Pokemon, and they're among the more attractive ones, IMO (yes, even Weezing).

Of course, I would only journey under the condition that I have a seventh partner... one with (at least) four wheels and an engine. This seventh, motorized partner (preferably manufactured by the Buick division of General Motors) would also be the one that I would be the most attached to.

No car (or truck, or van, or luxury motorcoach), no journey. That's my policy.

June 21st, 2012, 3:04 PM
Hrm, never really thought about it like that

However of the top of my head;

Munchlax (being my much loved favourite)
Treecko > Grovyle
Torchic > Combusken
Slakoth > Vigoroth > Slaking
Onyx > Steelix

I'd stop evolving them at their evolutionary stages listed above. I also don't care about how battle worthy they are. They'd what I'd have so ner.

Can i just say, I enjoyed posting here :D I actually looked up and spent 15 minutes laying around deciding. Good job.

This list is subject to change

Lt. Col. Fantastic
June 21st, 2012, 3:13 PM
I'd have...

A Gengar. Simply the best pokemon ever, if you know how to troll right.

Ninetails. Ninetails is one of my favorite fire pokemon. She just looks awesome. Also because momtails.

Gardevoir. A good psychic type, and I like her design.

Luxray. Possibly the coolest D/P pokemon, and my favorite 4th genner.

Eevee/Umbreon. Another one of my favorites. This would be my fav.

Lastly, I'd have a Salamence. It's always good to have a powerhouse and flyer on the team.

June 27th, 2012, 7:31 PM
I would have...


and my special partner would be Jolteon.

June 27th, 2012, 9:36 PM
I'd love to leave small innuendos so as to make you guess, but I'll just tell you all straight out. (Haha!) My six would be:


My "notable" Pokémon would by Snorlax, well... for obvious reasons! (LET'S HAVE A BOUNCING PARTY!!!) Nah, not really. Snorlax would be my favorite because he's lax and care-free.
I have an atypical attachment to the classic Pokémon, especially those native to the Hoenn region. (As you can probably see from the Pokémon I've chosen.) Hoenn is my favorite region out of all of them, by far. I don't really have a fondness for the Pokémon native to the region in the incumbent games. (Isshu/Unova)

June 27th, 2012, 10:19 PM
Chandelure, Braviary, Electivire, Tyranitar, Kingdra & Scizor.


Some hard choices, I love waaaaaay too many Pokemon. And I tried really hard not to repeat types. My Partner would be Braviary.

With a team this powerful I could be the League Champion

July 10th, 2012, 9:10 AM
I agree with everyone saying this is hard to narrow down cause it really is lol :)

Ninetales - (would be my top partner, it's just so elegant)
Vaporeon - (everything about it intrigues me, like the way it melts into water)
Venomoth - (it's pretty yet deadly which is an awesome combo haha)
Swellow - (my all time favourite bird and I'd use it to Fly)
Manectric - (my favourite electric pokémon)
Hitmonlee - (I do Taekwondo so it could train in all the kicks with me haha)

July 10th, 2012, 5:23 PM
My team would probably have to be:
Swampert, Blaziken, Roserade, Luxray, Togekiss
And my main Pokemon would have to be Gardevoir

July 10th, 2012, 6:34 PM
My team would consist of Cyndaquil, Delcatty, Gallade, Staraptor, Zoroark and...

...the Pokemon that I would favor would be Beedrill. I love Beedrill. I don't care if he's crap in game, its BEEDRILL.


July 10th, 2012, 6:43 PM
Now everybody knows that certain Pokemon may suck in game but it's a different game when it comes to (real life) "Pokemon will never be real I'm just trying to make a point."
Plasmette is correct, Beedrill may suck in game but if trained right it could be a beast. Now my pokemon would be.
Umbreon, Flygon, Swampert, Raichu, Shiftry, and Typhlosion.

Katie the Friendly Ghost
July 10th, 2012, 9:43 PM
Being a fan of Ghost-types, I'd probably use at least a couple Ghost Pokemon.

Shiny Steelix

Obviously the Steelix would be my favorite/ace, being shiny and all.

Know-Nothing Bozo the Non-Wonder Dog
July 31st, 2012, 11:44 AM
My team would probably consist of Honchkrow, Arbok, Venomoth, Seviper, Vileplume, and Skuntank.
http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/d/da/Spr_5b_430.png http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/0/00/Spr_5b_024.png http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/3/33/Spr_5b_049.png http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/6/62/Spr_4d_336.png http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/1/1e/Spr_4d_045_m.png http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/b/ba/Spr_5b_435.png

Not really a balanced team at all, but hey, I go with the ones I like.

And of course Honchkrow would be my most favored Pokemon. He'd be my paly partner. xD

Pokemon Trainer UV
July 31st, 2012, 12:26 PM
Meh, I'd stay in school and live near home.

I'd have
A Charmeleon as my partner Pokemon, most likely named Reddin.

A Tranpinch (Since I'll probably find one since I live in the desert) named Snippy.

Mr. Fish my Magikarp, since I'd be lazy.

And a Gible, since it's also typically a Pokemon that hangs around deserts or desert like areas.

As for my Pokemon if I go out on a journey? Well, I don't know...
You can say that you want something, but if Pokemon were real, you'd have to follow the real world rules, and in the real world, you never know what might happen, but I'd definitely be with Reddin.

However, this is the team that I'd most likely have by the end of my journey:

Reddin won't be a Charmeleon forever.

I'd definitely keep the Gible.

Tons of cattle around my area, I'm bound to eventually run into a Tauros that escaped and has gone feral.

It'll take dedication, but I'd work hard to get a Gyarados!

Hmm.. I keep getting the feeling that I'd find a Shinx somewhere..

(Or Nidoqueen)
I also keep getting the feeling that I'd find a Nidoran somewhere around as well.

As for the Trapinch, I'd probably keep it home.
This is based on enviroment around my area. I live in the desert, but not too far off there are mountains with plenty of caves for Gibles, forests for Shinx and Nidoran, and ranches for possible feral Tauros.

August 3rd, 2012, 12:29 PM
i would want


August 3rd, 2012, 2:39 PM
But any team of mine would've included Articuno and Suicune since they're so beautiful. XD;

Fine, if we're going to be serious, I'd have to go with Glaceon, Vaporeon, Gengar, Feraligatr, Glalie and Dragonair.

not good for competitive battling but I love all these to death.

^No Guard and DynamicPunch? WIN. And Bullet Punch and Ice Punch? EPIC.

^Not the best Pokemon in the world, but my favorite. :3

^Scrappy for ghost coverage, Body Slam, Milk Drink, Heal Bell and Counter? You wanna frick around with this thing?

^No explanation necessary.

^Fast. Night Slash, Aerial Ace, Brick Break and Ice Punch. :D

^Own Tempo, Quiver Dance+Leaf Storm = your worst nightmare.

And my ~buddy~ would be Espeon. :3

August 3rd, 2012, 8:33 PM
Mine would likely look like this:

Metagross(Main): Seriously, who doesn't want to have a mechanical spider-like supercomputer as a companion?
Breloom: A boxing mushroom, of course. Not to mention that out of the Fire-Grass-Water triangle, I prefer the grass type.
Ninetales: Beautiful and elegant. And an excellent movepool along stats to boot.
Starmie: Like Ninetales, except that this time Starmie is part Psychic, which makes it even better (Except when you're going against a Bug/Ghost/Dark type)
Gengar: Once again, sticking to Gen. I. He's Gengar, what else do I need to say?
Rhyperior: Strong and bulky... except when you put him against Water-Types and Grass-Types.

August 4th, 2012, 10:46 AM
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/034.gif - Nidoking just looks awesome!
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/135.gif - Electric type is my favorite, and Jolteon is so cute & awesome at the same time!
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/094.gif - The troll of the team, and also one of my personal favorite - Gengar! We'd have trolling contests, making a lot of people mad xD
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/121.gif - I've always loved Staryu and Starmie, and I think they don't get enough love.
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/359.gif - Similar to Jolteon, this Pokemon is awesome and cute! Absol is the Pokemon that keeps trying to warn people of upcoming disasters. Unfortunately, it was mistaken as the Pokemon that causes the disaster. That's why it needs a lot of love!
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/571.gif - And finally, my favorite Pokemon, Zoroark. It looks awesome, it cares for the ones it loves, it's strong, and cuddly! What's not to love about a Zoroark?

So yeah, that's basically it. I love fluffy dog Pokemon xD

August 7th, 2012, 7:50 AM
I would totally have an all-Psychic team, because it's totally the best type there ever was.

Gardevoir - My main Pokemon. She's pretty. :3c
Gothitelle - Also pretty. I like pretty things. ;A;
Jynx - Not very pretty but obviously female. I like female pogeymanz, so.
Starmie - It gets access to the most awesome moves in the world.
Medicham - Gotta take a break from all these special attackers.
Xatu - I'm not walking through 10+ cities, thanks.

Danny Leo
August 7th, 2012, 10:07 AM
My team would definitely have to be...

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/134.gifhttp://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/248.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/065.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/257.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/149.gif

And my personal favorite of the bunch would have to be...


Because Shinyzard is the greatest thing since Coke Zero.

August 10th, 2012, 11:33 AM
1. Charizard - My starter who looks like a dragon and can fly me anywhere.
2. Gallade - Really cool pokemon with great power.
3. Kingdra - Every trainer needs water type in team. But I'm not good with water so I combined it with dragon.
4. Liligant - Grass type is required as well and Liligant is most beautiful one of them all.
5. Aggron - Defensive wall of the team. Very hard to beat unless faces some certain types.
6. Zoroark - Greatest pokemon in whole team. It just makes any illussion like real. What more could one want?!

August 10th, 2012, 12:22 PM
i would choose

August 10th, 2012, 11:09 PM
My choice:

• Persian - always been my favorite Pokemon, and it can learn electric attacks with TM's so it would be my "electrical cat"
• Delcatty - another of my favorite Pokemon, maybe I'd win some Pokemon contest, It would be my normal/dark type Pokemon (in attacks)
• To navigate around the water, I would need a water Pokemon, I'd would go with Buizel/Floatzel, they are also one of the many non-cat Pokemon I actually like

darn, didn't think it would be this difficult just picking 6 Pokemon,

• For a fire Pokemon I'd would love to have Arcanine (not much of a dog person, one of my favorite fire Pokemon ever)
• Meowth with an everstone (I love Meowth too, my second favorite Pokemon) I sure wouldn't want it to evolve
• I spent 1 hour trying to think of my 6th member, I might go with Linoone (another non-cat I like) for variation.

August 10th, 2012, 11:51 PM
METAGROSS TYRANITAR HYDRAGON CHARIZARD AGRRON SALAMANCE i have a team full of pseudo legendaries in black i never liked dragonite and never owned garchop metagross tyranitar and hydragon in triple battles is beast
