My favorite when I started playing was Pidgeotto. It looked awesome, plus had a head that has a good memory for me (involves visiting DC, reminds me of a sculpture), and it was strong, it evolved when it took out Brock's Onix, which in Yellow, is next to impossible to kill, since you can't catch anything that would leave a dent in it yet. So, it was my powerhouse.

I have quite a few faves from the old generations too.

Drowzee line: Oh god they were one of my faves from Generation 1 cos of their designs and the whole "Hypno steals children" joke. Also, I think Drowzee looks cute.

Snorlax: He was one of my 1st Gen faves cos he's so bulky and I love his awesome moveset and the hilarious memes of Snorlax "blocking the path". He's such an appealing Pokemon.

Miltank: I think she not only looks cute but she's also a beast.

Pikachu line: One of my fave Electric-type lines ever, and Pikachu is the mascot after all.

Aipom: The reason why she's on this list is solely cos I love monkeys.

Charizard was definitely my favorite from gen I. Great movepool and design. From gen II it's Scizor. He's a beast in the attack category and looks so sick

Gen I:
My original favorite Pokemon was Eevee. It was the first card I received, so when I think of gen I favorites, Eevee is always first. I also like it's evolutions a ton. Other Pokemon this gen I like are Venonat, Charmander, and Articuno.

Gen II:
My all time favorite Pokemon is Umbreon, and it's also from gen II. So fitting for this thread lol. I loved it ever since I saw it in Pokemon Stadium 2. I also like Espeon, Jumpluff, Quilava, Smeargle, and Aipom.

As for least favorites, I'm not a fan of Pikachu at all. I used to really, really hate it as a kid, but it's at least tolerable now. I have a plushie Pikachu that's the cutest Pikachu I've ever seen. But I generally just dislike Pikachu. Not as much as when I was 7 though lol. I don't really like some of the more bland or strange Pokemon gen I offers though. Not a huge fan of Lickitung. I really hate its evo, but that's a topic for another generation. As for gen II, I can't think of a single Pokemon I dislike.
you see these trees, man?

So, my top of all these are:

My all time favorite pokemon are Vaporeon and Suicune, so this thread is very fitting.
This thread is perfect also because I love the first generation pokemons, most of them are cool.

Generation 1:
Charizard: I simply love it, It was my first starter
Arbok: When I was little I used to watch the anime, I thought Jessie's Arbok was super cool, actually I cried when I watched the episode where she released it
Arcanine: I mean, just look at it! Isn't it majestic? Besides it's super fast and super powerful.
Rapidash: I really like fire type pokemon and when I first saw this one in the game, I simply wanted to get ponyta to evolve it and have it in my party... rapidash is so beautiful *-*
Gengar: I'm a metalhead, what did you expect? I've always loved ghost types, and I like gengar because of it's design and the "dead clefairy theory"
Magmar: Magmar is so cool and strong, some people find it ugly (don't know why) but I find it cool and somewhat adorable
Dratini: *dratini shows up* Awww look at that adorable little thing, I won't even attack it :3 *dratini used dragon rage* (your beloved magmar faints) Awww it killed magmar isn't it adorable?

Generation 2
Umbreon: Did my eevee evolve into that little devil? It looks like if it was a member of a black metal band... So evil but still cute.
Houndour&Houndoom: These two, I wanted to go to Kanto so bad to have these guys, again, they look like members of a black metal band *-*
Misdreavus: I said before I love ghost types, right? Well, misdreavus is one of my favorites along with Gengar of this type
Magby: Again, so cute but so powerful, just like in the case of dratini
Tyranitar: It's powerful, it looks like Corpsegrinder, and it scares the hell out of anybody

Hmmmm okay =/

Generation I favorites Gengar, Venusaur and Marowak
Generation I dislikes Abra (due to teleporting), Zubat (kept appearing when it is clearly not welcomed), Tentacool (same as Zubat), Mewtwo (ugly), Dragonite (didn't like the idea that it evolved from a Dragonair at level 55) and Mr. Mime

Generation II favorites Misdreavus, Donphan, Magcargo and Feraligatr
Generation II dislikes Unown, Celebi and Meganium (but I like Meganium now)

Gen 1; Porygon: Love this thing. I liked the idea from the first time I talked to that dude in the Mt. Moon Pokemon Center that there were Pokemon you had to get in ways other than catching them, & Porygon epitamized that with its price tag of 200,000. On top of that, its design is cool, & its Conversion attack is useful.

Chansey: It feels like a prestige to have one.

Farfetch'd: It's a bird that carries a leek. It's design is so interesting, & with Swords Dance & Slash it's not bad in battle either.

Alakazam: My best friend's favourite, back when he played the game. I didn't like it originally, but it sort of grew on me...

Gen 2; Porygon2: (see above)

Ampharos: In my mind, this guy's as boss as Alakazam & Dragonite. Thunderpuch ftw.

Jumpluff: ........ It's cute. And it's every attack is a status ailment move.

Smeargle: Sketch. SO much fun, being able to have a Pokemon with nearly any moveset in the game.

& Blissey, because it feels empowering to look down & see that 711 HP

Generation 1:

Pikachu - Goes without saying pretty much.

Tentacruel - Tentacruel is a lot stronger than most people give him credit for. I beat the entire Elite Four in Pokémon Blue with mostly Tentacruel.

Snorlax - Snorlax is so much like me, minus the fat... Eating and being lazy is what I do best!

Generation 2:

Totodile - Always was my favourite starter from Generation 2. It's just cute.

Skarmory - It's a bird. But made of steel.

Celebi - Celebi is probably my favourite legendary Pokémon. I like how something so cute can be so powerful.
