Most of my favorite 4th gen Pokemon were actually just evolutions of those from a previous generation (Mismagius, Weavile, Togekiss, Porygon-Z and Froslass), but I did enjoy Rotom, Drifblim, Lucario and Empoleon as well.

Actually the more I think about it, I realized that I've used 8 out of 9 of those Pokemon in either the fifth or sixth gen games, which surprises me a bit. The only one I haven't used beyond Platinum is Empoleon, and that's because I'm not a fan of moving my starter Pokemon from their original game unless I'm restarting.

      Walking down the path I know. Banning Pokémon just because you don't know how to beat them is just plain wrong. It's like banning alcohol because it makes ugly people pretty.

        Infernape. For its badass design and the fact that it's based off the legend of Son Goku which inspired my favorite Shounen/Anime/Manga ever, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z!

          Rotom. It's just...unique. It possesses household appliances, and turns them all crazy xD (proof in the anime, if I remember).

          I also liked Torterra, Garchomp and Gastrodon. All pretty awesome Ground-types, with the last one being cute, too. The first 2 are phenomenal physical attackers, while Gastro is bulky and can absorb water moves.

            My favorite 4th generation Pokémon is Shaymin.

            I love how Shaymin changes he's form into ground or flying.
            Shaymin is cute and he look like an deer when in flying form and he looks like a headhog when it is in he's ground form.

                Scizor, I never used him before and then I decided on my first playthrough of HG I would use a 3-mon team of Espeon, Umbreon, and Scizor... I had no idea about technician before using it and I must say Bullet Punch alone destroyed whatever I needed it too.

                I loved most of the cross-generation evolutions that Generation IV introduced, particularly Mismagius, Froslass, Roserade, Honchkrow & Yanmega.

                  I could make a full list, but it would probably end up being almost the entire generation. As others have said, I also liked many of the new evolutions to old pokémon introduced, such as Magnezone and Porygon-Z. My most favorite from this generation is Toxicroak, followed by Garchomp. But again, I liked many MANY from this gen.

                    DRIFLOOON <33456678 Drifloon, for being adorable. Also adorable are Cherubi and combee. Hnngngngn.
                    Lopunny and Mismagius have sweet designs too.
                    Dialga and Giratina are favourite legendaries of mine, with Mesprit being my favourite out of the lake trio.
                    Glaceon is also my favourite eevelution, being my favourite type and all, and since it was introduced in this Gen it seems relevant.
                    I love Empoleon too, being the last evo of my starter and all.
                    I also love the rest of the gen, scrolling down a list of them lol.

                            Perhaps Togekiss. Out of all the pokemon who received a sinnoh evolution, Togetic was the most deserving of one. It wasn't just its strenght being underwhelming; it's small size--and even its name ("Togechick") implies that it was never fully grown up.

                            Togekiss got Aura Sphere, which really gave it amazing coverage. Togetic's entries mention how it appears before kindhearted people, as if it could sense their auras, so it even makes sense. Its design is based off of a dove, a bird representing peace, which didn't have any pokemon based off of it at the same. Everything about Togekiss just tied-in with each other soooooo well.

                                Staraptor, an early Normal/Flying type that's actually good. I suppose Swellow isn't bad by any means, but a decent Fighting move to hit Rock and Steels with puts Staraptor way ahead of the others.

                                Gastrodon, mainly because of how good it is for online battles. Good type combo, Good HP and defensive stats, immunity to Water/Electric and Toxic/Recover makes it really hard to bring down.

                                  Weavile is my favourite gen 4 Pokemon. He's the fastest Dark-type in the game, has access to good moves like Swords Dance, Night Slash and Ice Punch and tbh it's one of the coolest-looking Pokemon of all time. If it wasn't for my Weavile, it would have been extremely hard for me to get rid of Cynthia's stupid garchomp (I'm not capping it because it was uber at the time I beat her). Then I found out Weavile was excellent competitively as well(and underrated), with access to Pursuit, Low Kick and Ice Shard to give it a niche as a trapper and dragon slayer all in one (that was back in Gen 5). Gen 6 gave Weavile Icicle Crash and Knock Off, which finally means Weavile is no longer as predictable as it was, as well as giving it stronger STAB moves.

                                    My favorites are the Luxray and Magmortar.

                                    I like Magmortar because he looks like this big tank who just douses everything in lava.
                                    Luxray because its an electric cat, an opposite to one of my favorite Pokemon, Manetric.

                                    Weavile or Monferno, I think. Weavile is the evo of one of my favorite pokemon, looks cool and has an interesting dual typing. Monferno is probably the fire/fighter starter I like most, together with Infernape (and Blaziken), because of it's cute monkey looks and also fire types usually interest me in general.

                                    Mothim, Cherrim, Pachirisu, Ambipom, Honchkrow, Glaceon, Leafeon, and Shaymin. Just can't say no to these cuties. :)

                                    Cherrim is especially cute but I so wish it didn't require sunny weather for it to open up the flower. Weavile is cool too but I'm more for cute than anything! I have a soft spot for the smaller Pokemon so these really stick out with the occasional cool 'mon that catches my eye (Honchrow, Ambipom).
