Oh snap, here comes Gen 2! Talking about any region other than Kanto or Alola is refreshing in its own right thanks to all the Sun and Moon stuff I've seen already.

Rating scale:

[B][COLOR=#00B0F0]Excellent[/COLOR][/B] (9-10 stars - [img]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/01a16886f58cc4a645157c2de0822440e698bbaf_r.png[/img] is a 10/10 rating)
[B][COLOR=#25C935]Good [/COLOR][/B](7-8 stars)
[B][COLOR=#cc9900]Servicable [/COLOR][/B](5-6 stars)
[B][COLOR=#E36C0A]Not A Fan[/COLOR][/B] (3-4 stars)
[B][COLOR=#FF0000]Hate[/COLOR][/B] (1-2 stars - don't worry about this one. I actually don't hate that many Pokemon.)

My journey through Johto was through Crystal, so I don't know how Gold or Silver differ... but still, it was one hell of an experience.

The music is simply amazing and they gave the mechanics the proper fleshing out they deserved. There's genders and held items, they split Special into two stats and introduced the Steel and Dark types... along with everyone's favorite pastime (with one million quotation marks), shiny Pokemon. Not only that, it has easily one of the most extensive postgames in the series due to letting you explore the whole of Kanto!

Sure, all you do is fight the Gym Leaders and go to fight Red at the end, but the fact both regions connected to each other was an amazing prospect in of itself. Heartgold and Soulsilver are also one of the best remakes of a game I've seen in a long time - they're up there with Metroid Zero Mission. (Pokemon following you is the best.)

The Pokemon of Gen 2 seem to be geared more towards mythology, given how there's a lot of magical creatures (Misdreavus, Xatu, Unown, etc.) and emphasis placed on the effect they've had to humans in history (Ho-oh and Lugia's backstories, for one).

It's really cool stuff and I'm glad to share it with you guys.

[I][B]Thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]This whole line of Pokemon are cuties. Chikorita in particular is my favorite, but that's all I can say about them.[*]I mean, I like their designs - they're dinosaur plants that serve as a softer and less threatening version of the Venusaur line without the poison typing. However... I never see them aside from using them to complete the National Dex and, regarding their stats and moveset, they're not that good at fighting.[*]Oh well, what can you do?[/LIST][I][B]Overall rating[/B][/I]: [B][COLOR=#cc9900]******[/COLOR][/B]

Their vicious disposition combined with their stance and fire-boa-thing gives off this whole "cross me and I break your legs" vibe. I love it.[*]Unfortunately, while they're strong in their own right, there's simply a large amount of [s]harder, better, faster, stronger[/s] Fire types that outclass Typhlosion.

Not only are they visually intimidating (despite not having Intimidate...), they hide around and move slowly until it's the best moment to strike. It's pretty badass,[*]It's also surprisingly viable thanks to a combination of Dragon Dance and Sheer Force, although outmatched by the likes of Gyarados with their fancy Mega Evolution.[/LIST][I][B]Overall rating[/B][/I]: [COLOR=#25c935][B]*******[/B][/COLOR]

[I][B]Additional thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]Crobat is the first of the friendship-based evolutions. I think it's really sweet how it evolves based on how much it likes you.[*]They make the Zubat line worthwhile to catch because not only do they have a novel design with the four wings and that unmistakable face, they're also pretty useful too.[*]They have a crazy 130 speed, a neat combination of types and a movepool that makes them interesting to play with, but they're not the strongest and get walled out pretty easily by someone who's actually trying. Still, though, they redeem an otherwise annoying line of Pokemon.[/LIST][I][B]Individual score[/B][/I]: [COLOR=#25c935][B]********[/B][/COLOR]

[I][B]Thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]Chinchou is easily one of the more interesting first-stage evolutions out there. They're an adorable little anglerfish with weird, distinctive pupil designs and a fascinating type combination that would have remained exclusive to the Lanturn family if it weren't for Rotom-Wash years later.[*]That said, I share the same complaints with Lanturn as I did with Noctowl - they took out the things that made Chinchou unique and made it more generically cute. It's weird because they could have easily made Chinchou into a horrifying demon-from-the-deep... because have you [I][B]seen[/B][/I] real life anglerfish?[*]Appearance complaints aside, Lanturn is actually pretty good despite their middling offenses/defenses. Volt Absorb lets them suck in any electric attack and their giant 125 health lets them survive a lot of things.[*]Then again, all you'd need to do is throw a Grass type or Water/Ground type at them and they literally cannot do anything to stop them.[/LIST][I][B]Overall rating[/B][/I]: [B][COLOR=#cc9900]******[/COLOR][/B]

Already covered in Gen 1 with the rest of the Raichu, Clefable and Wigglytuff families.

[I][B]Additional thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]Ah yes, the first baby Pokemon. They introduced that in this generation too. Baby Pokemon are a necessary concept, if awkward to actually get - they're obtained exclusively through breeding, although Gen 4 onward they were introduced as wild Pokemon.[*]Gen 3 introduced the concept of Incenses - essentially, they let the holder breed their specific baby Pokemon like Azurill from a Marill holding a Sea Incense and so on. I don't particularly understand why an aroma would produce different eggs, but the less I say about that, the better.[*]They're all precious, although admittedly I have a bias towards Pichu and Cleffa due to their evolutions. That, and they have designs that perfectly compliment what they grow into.[*]Igglybuff having red eyes is weird when you realize that Puff and Tuff have blue eyes.

[I][B]Thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]One of the most memorable Gen 2 Pokemon, if at least for Misty's crazy Togepi from the anime. Personally, my fondest memory with the Togepi line was the egg that Prof. Elm gave to you... that, and the fact that one of my characters is a Togekiss that I had to grind extensively to defictionalize.[*]Togepi is a Pokemon that's just hatched out of its shell - it's adorably round and sort of looks like the yolk of an egg.[*]Togetic is an improvement and reasonably strong for a middle evolution, although not to the same extent as Porygon2 because wowza don't even get me started on that one. It's a good progression.[*]Come Gen 4 where Togekiss swoops in and turns an otherwise decent Pokemon into both a menace and one of my favorites. (I have a lot, okay?)[*]The already good design is made impressive by turning them into a big fluffy bird that can rend our mortal souls to pieces.[*]Togekiss is lovable, but at the same time they're insanely dangerous with stuff like Nasty Plot, Baton Pass, Serene Grace Air Slash, Aura Sphere and so on. They're also just bulky enough to withstand a lot of punishment.[*]The choice to add the Fairy typing to them in Gen 6 is also notable because now they're fluffy fairy birds on top of everything else.[*]All in all, an excellent line of Pokemon.[/LIST][I][B]Overall rating[/B][/I]: [B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*********[/COLOR][/B]

The coolness is compounded by how they also resemble totems/prophets - they're one of the most creative Gen 2 Pokemon for sure.[*]Battle-wise, Magic Bounce is a wonderful ability that absolutely cripples status move users...

Now that they have Quiver Dance, that's an option too... but I'm not ballsy enough to do that.[*]Does it bother anyone that Bellossom isn't available in or even get mentioned in Alola?

[I][B]Thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]Before I say anything about the Azumarill family, let me just talk about a phenomenon called Pikablu. You see, back when the first Pokemon movie came around, Gen 2 was already out in Japan. Marill made an appearance in the movie and all the kids went apemuk trying to figure out what they were.[*]Maybe they were a water-type evolution of Pikachu that evolved with the Water Stone. Nobody in America knew. Then Gen 2 came out in the states and revealed it's an entirely different line of Pokemon. Womp, womp.[*]With that in mind, I love the Azumarill family. One questions how a mouse turns into a rabbit, but I still want to bear-hug them.[*]Their stats aren't very impressive... at a first glance. That's where everything else about them comes to the rescue. Huge Power is as blatant as it sounds, seeing as it straight up doubles your attack.[*]The Fairy typing they gained in Gen 6 also gives them a huge edge against Dark, Fighting and Dragon types along with a fancy new STAB move in Play Rough.[*]Their moveset is a huge thing here - Aqua Jet remedies their speed issue, they can Belly-Drum to maximize their already phenomenal attack, Play Rough because of the above and Knock Off for coverage. I guess Waterfall too if Aqua Jet isn't enough for you.[*]Sap Sipper is also a good choice given how nobody seems to expect it. That's a free attack boost and an immunity to a crippling weakness! Granted, I can see why nobody uses it due to the lack of reliability... and electric types being a thing.[*]Azumarill is an excellent Pokemon with humble origins... especially if it drove people crazy trying to figure out the mystery of Pikablu.[/LIST][I][B]Overall rating[/B][/I]: [B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]**[/COLOR][/B]

[I][B]Thoughts[/B][/I]:[LIST][*]Alright, you thought I liked Murkrow? Nah fam, my love for the Mismagius family cannot be understated.[*]Misdreavus is good by itself - they're a precious little ghost... that's possibly based off of the concept of the nukebuki - a monster in japanese mythology that's a disembodied woman's head that screams at people to scare the muk out of them. I love it.[*]Mismagius, though... holy muk, dude. You could not ask for a more perfect evolution design for a Pokemon. They take that witch motif and go to town with it - the end result is [I]absolutely stunning[/I]. Their stats only get a moderate increase in speed and special attack/defense, but they're just enough for me to give a crap about getting them.[*]With a bit more firepower (likely a mega), they'd be one of my outright top ten favorites.[/LIST][I][B]Overall rating[/B][/I]: [B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B][B][COLOR=#00B0F0]*[/COLOR][/B]

    Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your site in internet explorer, would test this? IE still is the market leader and a big portion of people will miss your excellent writing due to this problem. [url=https://www.testbank.shop/nursing-and-health-professions.html]nclex study guide[/url]
