Seems like those'd be the perfect moves for it, thematically, hehe~
    Gorebyss is still an amazing pokemon with a lot going for it. It would definitely have been pretty interesting for it to have draining attacks, but I'm alright without them. Honestly even if it had access to those moves, I probably still wouldn't use them, since I feel like the current move pool I use for my Gorebyss covers everything I would ever want it to do (Surf, Ice beam, Shell Smash, Baton Pass).

    Glad you were inspired to look up Gorebyss after reading my story. Gorebyss is just a pokemon I adore and I always feel like it needs more love and respect! Thanks for the response!

      To be honest, it's less that I think draining moves would be exceptionally useful for Gorebyss in gameplay, and more that I just think that they'd be thematically-appropriate and a nice way to weave its style of predation into gameplay. It wasn't really any sort of criticism or anything, hehe~

      And, of course! There are loads of cool Pokémon that don't get a whole lot of attention despite being really neat, and I'm always pleased to learn more about them~

        Slowbro is always up front in my team. I've loved Slowpoke since gen 2 when i got one from the well. I like to think that i'm like a slowpoke, just a laid back guy chilling out. Slowbro just so happens to be the only mega in my team of favorites, and i bring him in so he can beat people down. I would love to have a slowpoke peaking out of my backpack, or a Slowbro at my side.

          Incineroar Arcanine has been my partner all the way back to Gold/Silver. I use that lovable woofer every chance I get, even going so far as to transfer an Egg of one over in the start of Black/White. For one reason or another, he's always been called Victor. There have been adaptions, such as Victor Jr., or a female Arcanine called Victory, but the general name stays the same.

          Best friends forever <3

          I think I would say Yanmega. It's not my favourite Pokémon overall but it is my favourite competitive Pokémon and I have been known to use it a lot on teams for tiers much higher than its own, usually with a lot of success. I almost always include her on my teams and don't see that stopping any time soon! Other big ones for this would be Cloyster and Drifblim.

            Lucario. First loved it in its movie (you know which one boiii) and have never stopped loving it. All round a great Pokemon pick that is strong in battle and has some really cool stuff going on for it.

            It would probably be Golduck. I always use one when given the opportunity to.

              Arcanine and T-tar have been used by me consistently over the last 20-18 years,I don't think I'd play a new gen game in online play without them TBH.

              I have pretty much every pokemon card made for them also lol.

                Kangaskhan.

                I'm a Normal-type Pokémon trainer. I really like Slaking, Ursaring, Raticate, Tauros and much more Normal-type Pokémon, but... Kangaskhan is my favorite one. Just gotta love her. haha

                  Oh, I honestly thought it's Pachirisu for you! Iirc, you a Pachirisu theme before :p

                  To answer the topic, my signature Pokémon changes every generation. In Gen I it was tie between the Abra line and the Squirtle line. In Gen II it was Espeon. In Gen III it was the Mudkip line with honorable mentions to the Lotad and the Torchic line. In Gen IV it was more like a signature team, rather than focusing on one Pokémon. In Gen 7 it was Solgaleo, majestic and fluffy. :D

                    Hard for me to say. With my online life, I'd probably pick Pikachu. I've used themes of Pikachu for far longer than other Pokemon. Another answer might be Nidoking, but I'd lean towards Pikachu.

                    For offline life, my answer is definitely Meowth. It's always been my favorite Pokemon. I have a collection of Meowth items. Best of all, I have a "real life" Meowth in the form of my Siamese cat, who is my favorite pet.

                    Definitely Charizard, it's been my favorite pretty much my whole life.

                      I don't know why, but I'm always fixated on finding a Riolu/Lucario and naming him Aaron.

                        Quagsire is one of my favorite Pokémon, so I think that going everywhere with one would be incredibly funny and some hilarious moments would ensue. Just as long as a Grass-type Pokémon doesn't appear, of course.

                          Pikachu was my signature Pokemon when I was much younger. I used to use him, unevolved, on ALL of my Pokemon game teams. I was pika obsessed.

                          I have no idea who my signature Pokemon would be now. I use all different ones on my games now, and haven't used the same pokemon on more than one team in years. I haven't really used Pikachu in a long time, too, and when I do, I tend to evolve it into Raichu now (like on my y file).

                          Having Lucario as a new signature could be cool, though, if I find opportunities to use him on more games. He is Korrina's signature Pokemon, and I like/admire/crush on Korrina a lot as of now. :)
