View Full Version : Anime Appeal

July 16th, 2012, 6:54 PM
Is there a pokemon you initially did not like or didn't overly care for and then when it made its anime debut and you got to see it from a different perspective.

For me it was Scraggy and Scrafty line. I thought upon the initial release of them through the game that they looked incredibly silly and their design was was just unappealing to say the least. Then when I saw Ash with Scraggy I started to like it through Ash Scraggy personality. So I don't know if its the anime artwork or the personality but I felt they both had a part to play in my new appeal for this pokemon.

So which pokemon or pokemon(s) was it for you and why did you start to like them if you have a reason for it?

When Oshawott was first revealed, I didn't care much about it until I watched the first episode of BW and it acted so cute!

After watching Oshawott's cuteness act, I decided that when I got Black I would choose him as my starter and that has since come true.

Now, I love Oshawott to oblivion! If it weren't for the anime, I would have not been the Oshawott Fangirl I am now.

I thought I was the only one.
It happens quite often with me, but the most memorable one was probably with Gliscor. First time I see theat Pokemon, I was grossed out. It looked so disturbing and annoying to me and I vowed I shall never lay a hand on him. When Ash got his gligar, the liking started. When it finally evolved, my entire view was shifted. Now, Gliscor looks cool in my eyes, I also love his skills in battle. He certainly is a great Pokemon now....

I guess Mijumaru is a candidate =D
Satoshi's one is pretty interesting creature... but he did not appeal to me that much so I would choose him as starter.

Oshawott (like everyone else), I thought it was just going to be such a 'derp-like' Pokemon. The anime has proven that it can be such an incredibly cute Pokemon.

Krokorok is a Pokemon I also thought would be uninteresting but now it's like one of my favorites. n_n I guess seeing that it can be kinda vulnerable is cute.
