    Marill - ok so it has nothing THAT special about it but as a kid it was one of the coolest, I think because of the anime lol
    Sudowoodo - It had its own special event thingie... what else gets that treatment other than legendaries? :) ...and Gyarados...
    Politoed - I... loved frogs back in the day!
    Skiploom - Hoppip is irrelevant, Skiploom is the best yo
    Yanma - idk to me it seemed like the absolute rarest Johto Pokemon lol
    Slowking - it was badass in a movie, that's... a pretty good selling point!
    Unown - mainly because of the INCREDIBLE Entei movie
    Teddiursa/Phanpy - Happy nostalgic memories??

    Larvitar, Blissey, Miltank, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Ho-Oh, Lugia...

    ok yeah I love 99% of Johto.

    BUT! Least favourite? Aipom. It's so gross. It's just a monkey. Or monkey-type thing. I just don't like monkeys lol. Most other Pokemon are A-OK by me but Aipom is just not my type!
    You're like me :) I've seen people liking monkey pokemon a lot and stuff, but I just don't really like them.

    Ok, as for the actual topic, I really like Togetic, it's cute and it's evolution is just awesome, I like it a lot. From the starters, I probably like Chikorita the most, but Totodile and Cyndaqil are cool too! Same goes for their evolutions. Next up is Celebi. It's cute and a mythical, I am a fan of those.

      Xatu has always been one of my favorite pokemon in general; it's backstory about being able to see the past and future at the same was always cool to me.

      Unown is a novetly pokemon with literally no use. Are there people out there who actually enjoy collecting them? {XD}

        Suicune and Lugia always had genuine Legendary mystique and elegance that, for me, were lacking in pretty much every other gen.

        I also love Azumarill, but honestly only since it gained the Fairy type... Which probably makes me shallow. :P

        Aaaand Sudowoodo is the worst. Just don't get the appeal.

        I have to say my favorites would be Tyranitar, Steelix and Porygon. As for least favorite...Unown...just seems useless to me.

          I guess my favourite award should to go tyranitar. My friend had one and i liked it so much i cought a lvl 5 larvitar in the morning and lvlld it to 100 in the same day.

          For the worst: togepi/togetic, maril/azumaril, unown, slowking, hoppip, skiploom,, jumpluff and politoed. slowking & politoed are an unneccessairy extra evo to an existing pokemon. there was really no point to slowking, and politoed while not looking so bad, should have been a seperate pokemon alltogether.the others are just lazy by design. we already had some pokemon that are circles with limbs, no need to add more.

            Unown and Ledian are least favorites for me due to being the weakest and unfortunately most useless Johto Pokemon. Early bug types were made to be bad back then but even Ariados, Butterfree and Beedrill are more useful throughout the game.

            Don't understand Gamefreaks thought process when creating Unown and Ledian. If Ledian and Unown were created in a later gen, they'd probably have better stats, ability, typing and movepool and a chance at actually being decent.

            My most favorite from Johto easily are Espeon and Umbreon
            I love the Vee's too much

            least favorite has to be Togepi, it was soo annoying in the anime (really hated it) and really hate it's design
            I ♥ Fire Foxes and Cats!! - art drawn by do-it-yourself (claims no credit)
            instead of 'Catch 'em All' for me would be "gotta Pet 'Em All"

              Favourite? From Gen II? Dunsparce. Yeah, hate all you want. I picked it up in Dark Cave in my first playthrough of Gold, it was the first entirely new Pokemon I met in that generation, and I loved that little guy and carried it with me as far as it would go. I love its confusingly-shaped body and its cute little face and, yes, even its moveset is charming. Natu is cool too.

              Least favourite is Forrettress. I know it's strong and popular and all, but it never made sense to me. How does it move?

                Azumarill and Chikorita/Meganium are some of my favorites.

                Chikorita: first starter ever, first pokemon ever. Because Heartgold was my first playthrough, I remember having it at some ridiculous level and trying to destroy Red with it. I beat him 1st time, but Meganium had help.

                Azumarill: While not a part of any of my Johto playthroughs, I have used Azumarill in more recent entries, gained a "permanent nickname" status as I just find it amazing to use.

                Ok, time to round off my tour of 'favourite Gen _ pokémon' threads.

                Typhlosion, easy. Its my favourite pokémon of all 821 (or whatever the number is nowadays) and it has been my favourite ever since I played Gold. Its design to me is sort of effortlessly cool, whereas some pokémon look like they're trying too hard like Greninja & Decidueye (even though I love Decidueye). Typhlosion has the effect on me that Charizard has on a lot of other people.

                Other cool Gen II 'mons - Ho-oh, Suicune, Lugia, Scizor, Azumarill, Skarmory, Steelix, Meganium, Crobat, Wobbuffet, Totodile, Murkrow, Kingdra, Noctowl, Espeon, Corsola, Slowking, Quagsire, Marill, Bayleef, Raikou, Entei, Tyranitar and Quilava.

                Oh, almost forgot this topic had a least favourite element. I don't dislike many Gen II pokémon, even ones I dismissed when younger as 'forgettable' have grown on me. It's probably a toss-up between Sunflora's derpy face or Stantler's generic blandless combined with an ugly face.

                  I like Houndoom and Houndour, they are my favorite Pokemon. Suicune is my other favorite Pokemon in the 2nd generation. Also Raikou, Entei, Espeon, Umbreon, Skarmory, and Ampharos. Generation two had some very good designs.

                    My favorite gen 2 Pokemon would have to be Feraligatr, probably because I beat the entire game with it, plus it was the first Pokemon that I ever pulled to level 100. (Plus it looks badass.)
                    My least favorite would have to Bellossom. Just found it kinda pointless tbh

                      I have a lot of favourite Gen 2 Pokemon, but my number one is and always will be Quilava.

                      If I had to choose a least favourite, it would probably be Miltank, mainly because of Whitney's.

                        My favorite(s) would have to be Lugia, Typloshion, and Sneasel!
                        My least favorite(s) would have to be all of the 'baby' Pokemon introduced in that gen and ...Stantler...

                          I really like most of the Johto Pokemon, except a few that I try to like but can't sometimes. Like Ledian and Unown, already reasoned why I don't like these guys, and then there's the baby Pokemon.

                          I think they're cute definitely since they are baby Pokemon, and they were there to show off the new breeding mechanic of Gen 2. But other than that they really seem useless in anything else, and for some evolutionary lines like Clefairy didn't need a pre evo I think as they were already iconic, small and cute like Eevee. For others like Magmar and Electabuzz, I guess it made more sense for a smaller baby like creature to pop out of the egg, but then there's still Pokemon like Kangaskhan who hatch out of the egg with its own baby and Pokemon like Tauros or Pinsir who hatch as Pokemon comparable to fully evolved 1st or 2nd stage Pokemon. I also feel like baby Pokemon were an attempt to make a bunch of cute Pokemon to promote like Pikachu or Eevee.

                          Baby Pokemon are unnecessary although some are necessary like Togepi, I'm mostly talking cross gen Baby pokemon. I think for the most part and their Pokedex slots could have been easily fulfilled with a new evolutionary line or cross gen evolution like Kingdra or Crobat.

                          Least favorites aside, I really like Ampharos, Typhlosion, Feraligatr and Houndoom, common answers but they are cool Pokemon.

                            Pokemon is my favorite game series. Hope in future the game should come with more interesting series.

                              My least favorite would probably be Aipom. XD Or maybe Ledian. I also don't especially like baby pokemon, although I would make an exception if they had bothered to actually make a Kangaskan baby mon! Like srsly.
                              Wooper is one of my favorites, it was really useful in stadium vs. any team with electric and ground types on it, and sometimes did OK vs poison/grass. Weird pokemon like Sunflora have grown on me via hacking to make them more viable (Sunflora just cries out for a partial fire typing to me), although I'm not sure if that really counts since it's not quite the same mon any more.

                                I'll start with my least favorites.

                                Quagsire. Just... Quagsire.
                                Seriously, I love Water/Ground as a typing. I love almost every Water/Ground pokemon, but this thing can just go to the darkest depths of hell and take its zero IQ grin along.
                                Ledian just makes me sad. Sure it's one of the starter Bug/Flying types but does it have to be worse than Butterfree in seriously every aspect ever?

                                And now, favorites.
                                - Scizor. I love this thing since it was revealed. And it just got better and better with every gen.
                                - Elekid. I wasn't the biggest fan of the baby pokemon being introduced I'll admit that. But Elekid to me always felt like the best of the bunch. And I like how it looks.
