Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    So, a lot of controversy around Gen 5 and it's pokemon. Personally, I loved the way they looked. But I want to hear what PC has to say. So, what was your favorite pokemon(s) of Gen 5? Also, what are your least favourites? Feel free to respond to other posts & discuss/promote your favourites. As for the generation as a whole, if you feel they don't look like Pokemon, use the seperate thread for that.

    (Sorry if this has been posted before or is a common question.)

    People can make fun of it all they want, but I'm in love with this thing's design. I only wish it had a better movepool. D:

    Spoiler:


    Yes, it's seriously my favorite GenV pokémon. XD

      Samurott was definitely my favourite fifth generation Pokémon. Everything from its awesome design to its semi-bug type was just awesome. That being said, I will admit that Darmanitan falls dangerously close behind. Those things are amazing physical attackers and learn seriously beneficial moves early on.

      Imo, a lot of the gen 5's look like garbage (In fact, one of them actually IS garbage.) but amazingly I do have some favorites from gen 5.

      Stoutland, Serperior, and Zebrastrika (Spelled wrong I know).

      I'm just kinda afraid to see what they come up with in the 6th generation.

      Hmm good question, I really love Vanilluxe and as much as you may dislike it's design, for me it's cute!

      Well it seems likes/dislikes is close enough to death that a couple days don't really matter - the thread needed a refresh anyways. So as a result, I'm just going to edit in a few discussion questions into the first post so we can get some discussion happening again. :3

      Either way, my favourite was Herdier partially because of the design/partially because of how it sounds as well as partially because it was a dog, lol. Everything about it is awesome tbh.

      As for others, some of the ones I didn't like were Crimgan, Garbodor, etc, but purely because of design. A lot of the ones I disliked before I kind of liked more because of battling, lol, like Tornadus. :x

      But yeah, overall, Crimgan/Druddigon should probably be deleted. :)

        WHAT?! I think Druddigon looks totally kick ass! lol Just my opinion though. And Garbador is just a reboot of Muk and I never really liked Muk. The gothitelle and it's evolutions look so ridiculous to me. I don't like them at all. I like the monkey trio excep the water form. Simsear has to be my new favorite pokemon. It and Timburr. And it's evolved forms.

        Personally I like Golurk (which you might be able to guess by my name )
        Its a giant robot. THAT FLIES. Plus it's got a movepool that helps it do what it needs to

        Other favorites of mine include.... hm. I kinda like all of the 5th gen. They really grew on me. But i guess I'd go with the jelly bear Reuniclus, Elgyem, Rufflet, Joltik, Serperior, uh... and Darmanitan, especially zen form. I thought that was a cool feature.

        Least favorites would be Gothita (it's lips are two disconnected ovals!?) and actually the musketeer trio. Something about them seemed creepy, like a human deer hybrid gone wrong...

        @Forever Whatchu talkin' bout? Druddigin/Garbodor are awesome, even though I kinda hated them at first... but now they're cool haha

          People need to stop being haterz when it comes to 5th generation pokemon.

          The variety of styles makes it great for everyone. IF you like elegant, tough, weird, cute, ugly, regal, sinister, or any combination of these styles, there is a Pokemon for you in this generation.

          I also like the new and unique typing of pokemon, with the exception of the poor representation of poison types, and even maybe the fire types.


          I am picky about my Pokemons' appearances, but these are the ones that appeal to me, and therefore, I can use during the game:


          Spoiler:



          I should also note that this generation contains the most Pokemon that I find to be appealing enough to be on my team. This is by far the best generation of Pokemon!!!

            I have to say, this generation of pokemon make me madder then any other. Most of them are cross bread with two skill sets but my fav is.............
            Darmanitan.
            He is a straight beast.

              I don't love Garbodor that much, although Trubbish is meh..
              Garbodor looks hideous.

                I really enjoyed three different pokemon the best. Darmanitan, Haxorus and Braviary.
                Darmanitan was a monster and Haxorus is probably my favorite dragon design. I usually never like flying but Braviary just looked awesome and he was overall a great asset to my team. He is my favorite flying including legendary birds.

                  Ughh.. Generation Five. Brought two Pokemon I really hate. :\

                  Spoiler:
                  and


                  I really do not know why, but these Pokemon strikes me as ugly. really. no offence.

                  I have a few mons I like though. Samurott is really a beast, plus Serperior is just elegant. Galvantula is badass, and so is Cohagrigus.

                    Cobalion was a cool pokemon! Not necessarily the best, but I liked it.
                    Least favorite, probably Simisage, Simipour and Simisear,
                    they were just...frightening.

                    I remember back on the day when it was released in japan and all of the pokemon were being released through out the day I was in aw. Then we they were all ripped by the evening my initial ones I instantly connected too were Bisharp, Haxorus, Carracosta, Krookodile line, Volcarona, and Golurk from if memory serves correctly. Then looking at it in retrospect I am thinking I like at least 75% of the designs. Good stuff as a whole, although there are hits and misses as well like the Kami Trio, Trubbish & Garbodar, Alomomola, Klink line, Cyrogonal. Then there is some I just disliked like Scraggy and Scrafty but now I love them especially since (Scraggy) atm is apart of Ash team.

                      Conkeldurr is the best to me for its good bulk and movesets, I have one and it sweeps like no tomorrow
                      Only one pokemon I cannot stand, Whimsicott, it is good but focused to much on irritating your opponents

                        Looking only at concepts, my favs are Oshawott/Dewott/Samurott. I think concept of Samurai otter/sea lion using razor shells/swords is awesome. I also like Zoroark and Cohagrigus.

                        I don't understand what everyone's beef with Volcarona is. It is the most badass moth I have ever seen and if you Quiver Dance that thing it will take down a freight train on steroids. Oh and it puts Venomoth from Gen I to shame.

                        While a lot of the Gen V Pokemon looked absolutely pathetic, and like the developers just all got really drunk and splashed some paint around on a board and called it a Pokemon, there were one or two I didn't mind....

                        Volcarona
                        Hydreigon (was waiting for a three-headed dragon for sososo long)
                        Kyurem
                        Samurott
                        Excadrill
                        Haxorus (there is a reason it has hax in it's name)

                        I wasn't aware everyone had a beef with it, judging by the people that voted in this topic http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=275633 and the comments they made as to how great it is and how much they liked it.

                          Volcarona is a great lead but its 4 times weakness to rock and the popularity of stealth rock are the only thing holding it back. Start with a rapid spin and it is a great Gen V pokémon

                            @Hikari - Reuniclusis seriously one of the coolest pokemon in B/W IMO.

                              My favorite 5th gen pokemon is definitely Archeops and Dweeble/Crustle! I think the designs were amazing especially for Archeops. I love all the colors on him! And for Dweeble and Crustle, I think their designs are very cute and fun! Dweeble is just so adorable that I wish I still had my hermit crabs so I can change all of their to Dweeble, LOL

                                I am one of the V gen hater. Yes, I'm very disappointed by almost every designs. Really. I love the games BW, but the Pokémon repelled me a lot.
                                Now, I'm used to them so I don't hate them as much as in the beginning x)
                                Anyway, each to his own taste !
                                Well, maybe I don't generally like the V gen Pokémon, but there's one or two of them I can stand, like Braviary or Deerling. And I think Garbodor's funny
