30 Day Challenge #1: Favorite Pokémon

Posted April 8th, 2014 at 1:46 PM by Swagroar

So let’s kick this 30 Day Challenge off, beginning with my favorite Pokémon of all time.


If I haven’t already established, my favorite Pokémon would have to be Lapras.

What makes Lapras my favorite Pokémon of all time, you may ask? For one, it’s very well designed. I always found it to look regal and gorgeous. In addition, its stats are all-around well balanced and it has a lot of attacks to utilize for a Water/Ice type, including STAB Ice Beam, which is always great, and stuff like Psychic and Thunderbolt! It may have lost a bit of Special Attack in Generation II, but it’s still a Pokémon I have always loved, and forever will. I’ve used it in so many of my playthroughs of Gen I and II and their remakes. Battling Lorelei’s in the Elite Four can be for a fun time, too. (But the sad thing is, I’ve never used one in any BW2 playthrough, given how rare it is and how late you get it.) And I used it in my main playthrough of X, and I was quite surprised when I found out I get one completely for free.

I also really like the idea of a “transport” Pokémon that ferries across water. And I liked in the days of the Orange League anime when Ash had his, along with the one in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers games.

So, Lapras is my favorite Pokémon because it’s nostalgic, its design is elegant, it has plenty of toys to utilize, and all in all, it’s just a Pokémon I never get bored of using. It will always be #1 for me, no matter what else comes along.

As for the other regions/generations:

Johto/II: Houndoom. Like Lapras, it’s been one I’ve found cool since its introduction and I always have fun using it. Getting a Mega Evolution in XY was a nice buff, too. It, along with Scolipede, which I’ll get to in a bit, are among my three favorite Pokémon ever. The dog from the spawns of heck!

Hoenn/III: Aggron. A gigantic metal dinosaur that crashes the scale and is made of armor? Yes please.

Sinnoh/IV: Mamoswine. This Pokémon really stands out to me for being based off an extinct creature, the wooly mammoth, and also having a dynamic Attack stat with two awesome STABs to utilize it with.

Unova/V: Scolipede. Some of you probably know me for this one, but Scolipede has been a favorite of mine for quite a while. I always thought a gigantic megapede looked cool, and it certainly helps that it’s not only fast, but learns moves like EARTHQUAKE, ROCK SLIDE and SUPERPOWER! Where else do you get that in a Bug-type?! Getting Speed Boost in Generation VI only made it even more rad. So yeah, Scolipede is the s***. It and Houndoom are two of my favorites only behind Lapras.

Kalos/VI: Pangoro. I’ll discuss it more when I get to entry #28.

So yeah, there’s my first entry on my 30 Day Challenge! Hope you all like it.
