        I do. I mean, the creator of everything... that is actually a Pokemon that can be caught and used? The concept alone baffles me, but the execution really ticks me off. Also, I think it's ugly.

          Giratina - design that really suits a powerful legendary pokemon, and its shiny colors are pretty awesome too!

            I always had a soft spot in my heart for Gliscor. Weavile and Honchkrow are also cool; honestly, most of the evolutions introduced in this gen were well thought-out. Except Lickilicky. And Ambipom. We don't talk about them. Rotom is also a personal favorite of mine. The concept of a poltergeist who hides in various household objects is pretty cool and I like it's design. I only hope that Rotom Pokedex is available to train in S/M 2. Can't forget Staraptor either, he's by far the coolest early game bird.

            As for ones I hate; hoo boy. I hate a lot of this gen to be perfectly honest, many of the designs seem either bland or stupid. I'm just gonna spoiler this...

            Combee (Vespiquen is cool)
            Finneon/Lumineon (I often forget that these guys exist)
            Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf (If only for the fact that they are near-identical)
            Arceus (why does this exist ??????)

            Also, obligatory Lucario-is-overrated comment. I like the guy alright, but he never really left the impression on me that he did on a lot of other people.

            For me it's Shaymin. I only thought Shaymin was 'ok' at first, but its sky forme made it my favourite Gen IV pokémon. Shaymin was one of the first event pokémon I ever received by wi-fi trade and also one of the first I received via wi-fi mystery gift, so it gives me fond memories of the early days of internet connectivity in pokémon.

            Other cool Gen IV 'mons - Staraptor, Azelf, Floatzel, Lucario, Weavile, Giratina, Empoleon, Darkrai, Gallade, Dialga, Shellos, Cherrim, Frosslass, Gastrodon, Buizel and finally Luxray.

              I'm a big fan of the new evolutions that were added in gen 4, I really like Electivire, Magnezone, Rhyperior etc. but still my favourite Pokemon from the gen is Lucario. Always has been. It's difficult to say exactly why, but its always been a Pokemon I appreciated and instantly grew on me, maybe the anime had something to do with it. I guess its design and genuine strength instantly appealed to me, the typing was nice too.

              I actually love most of the new Pokemon here, some notable picks of mine including the Drifloon, Stunky, Riolu, Buneary, Shinx, Hippopotas and Buizel lines. I also all the starters and the new evolutions of older Pokemon such as Yanmega, Roserade, Ambipom, Tangrowth, Froslass and the two new Eeveelutions named Leafeon and Glaceon.

              Oh, and Honchkrow and Mismagius too. Munchlax and Pachirisu are also super-adorable.

                      Diamond was my first pokemon game and so my favourite has to be the first pokemon I caught. It has to be. The first pokemon I had was chimchar but the first I caught was starly. At the time anyone I battled or all my friends ignored it and thought it was terrible. Now its actually one of the best regarded flying types. Also my first level 100, got there legitimately.

                          I would definitely say that Gen 4 had a LOT of memorable mons come out of it. The Shinx line, Gible line, and Chimchar line are just a few of my favorites from Gen 4.

                            I think my favorite was the shinx line.

                                I'm so jelly; Piplup's line is among my favourites ever, and it does have decent shinies throughout the line.

                                Haha, I almost always do this. It's a tad overdone, but if the shoe fits..?

                                I have many favourites from this generation, which include:
                                The aforementioned Piplup line
                                GLACEON, one of my other favourite Pokémon ever
                                Leafeon, yet another Pokémon I'd rank highly overall
                                Lopunny, Team Charm's leader and always has been a solid member of any team I've used her on
                                Buizel, I just really like this one; so happy and energetic looking
                                Roserade, need I say more?
                                Rotom, quite like this tricky-looking guy
                                Honourable mentions go to:
                                Torterra, I have a soft spot for the first Sinnoh starter I used
                                Pachirisu, playing Reborn really made me appreciate the cute squirrel
                                Ambipom, I used to dislike this one a lot, but then Pokémon Desolation happened
                                Dialga, playing as one in an RP years ago helped cement my appreciation of it

                                Gen 4 Pokemon weren't my favourite, but if I had to choose, I would go with Abomasnow and Drapion. They are pretty much only Gen 4 Pokemon I ever used, outside Gen 4 games, in story and competitive runs.
