    Nepse, before I can add you, please carefully review the first post of this thread. There is something you forgot to do with your join post.

        Maybe you were talking about a carp leaping over a waterfall in order to become a dragon. I think that was the folklore where Magikarp => Gyarados was based upon.

        On topic:

        Pikachu and Meowth certainly retained their popularity, being the two mascots of the Pokemon Anime (Pikachu does it better since it has more exposure). Dragonite had not retained popularity. It has regained what was once lost (he was outmatched by garchomp and Salamence once)

        Competitively, i think Gengar still retains the top one for me who regained popularity. Despite many changes in the metagame, with Snorlax and Zapdos being sent to the depths of UU, Gengar still managed to possess such threat, with its many immunities.

        Also, with the new Wish mechanics, Vaporeon also holds another spot in the OU as a great support member, with access to Wish, Baton Pass, Substitute, Scald, and many more.

        And finally, Starmie, along with Gengar, had been in the OU since they first came out, making the two the most veteran of all Pokemon in the OU. His access to BoltBeam plus Recover is a force to be reckoned with. Also, he is a good Rapid Spinner, blowing away all entry hazards set up by the opponent. And also a good revenge killer with Hydro Pump.

        and welcome Nepse!

        You're definitely right about Starmie. It remains one of the most common revenge killers in the metagame. Also, Ninetales, what with gaining the DW ability Drought, its popularity has brought it from NU all the way up to OU. The same applies to Alakazam, having acquired the DW ability Magic Guard, makes it frequently appear in Sandstorm and Hail teams. DW abilities have revived the popularity of many Pokemon, including the aforementioned Dragonite.

          Sorry i've been so inactive. Haven't really had the internet for the past 2 weeks. This club has really kicked off since i've last been on it huh?

          Anywho on topic.

          If it wasn't for the DW abilities most of 151 have, i doubt many of them would be used in Competitive battling or even just gameplay of Black and White.

          Granted i haven't played White since July, been going for the more nostalgic non abilities games where you can attack a Pikachu without fear of getting paralyzed or using ground moves against Magneton. Those were the days where you just blarg anything in your way with no fear.

          Actually... the whole Ground moves against Magneton only applies if it uses Magnet Rise; surprisingly, it doesn't have Levitate. But, I do like the whole "use ground moves against Weezing" thing though.

              New topic: Which of the original 151 do you think has done best to maintain popularity in the current generation?
              First of all, Pikachu is obvious. But, Meowth also has done well to maintain popularity, due to the anime. Other than those from the anime though, Dragonite seems to be rather popular still, and it's found all over the Gen V metagame.
              u got that right!

              personally, i think magikarp has stayed popular because of its derpiness.
              of course, pikachu has stayed popular, and who could forget?: "meowth, thats right!"

              Dragonite is capable of circling the globe in just 16 hours. It is a kindhearted pokemon that leads lost and foundering ships in a storm to the safety of shore.

              Seeing from a child's view, I'd have to say pikachu, because it has been the mascot since the beginning of pokemon. (It's also the only non-unova pokemon to regularly feature in anime)

              EDIT: can I be in the competition now? (feat. my rather poorly drawn MS paint voltorb)

              I'll go ahead and add you to the participants list then! Just remember though, the contest rules say the theme is to include your signature, as well. You can still use the Mewtwo userbar, though; that will not be a factor in judging.

                Multi-Scaled Dragonite. Magic Guard Alakazam. Drought Ninetales. Yes, the generation five had been generous to the classics.

                But, still hands down to Pikachu.

                USERBARS!




                now I have completed the starters! Any more you want me to make?

                Pikachu has always been very iconic, and always will be. It's also the one Pokemon of Gen I that many would find the cutest. And, throw a Light Ball on Pikachu, and it can do relatively well in battle for its stats.

                I see that's a new userbar. *adds to OP, rewards points*
                EDIT: Oh, you edited in another userbar. Alright, I'll add that one too. miltankRancher, you have now once again surpassed me in points.

                  I remember the Surfing Pikachu. good times, LOL. Plus now, he has Volt Tackle, power and cuteness in one.

                  really? I have no classes anymore, even if it is just 10 am here. Userbar spree lol.

                  Here is another one, in tribute of my favorite lazy guy.

                  Surfing Pikachu, that is awesome! Totally... love... surfing Pikachu! Especially how he looks in Pokemon Snap.

                    Too bad it was just an event though. (had it traded from a friend who hacked it in)

                    that is enough userbar for the week I guess. LOL.

                        LOL. I m not good honestly. i just use a program to do it.

                        i prefer the non-shiny one. honestly, shiny gyarados look retarded.

                            It actually looks quite amazing, ikaroschase! ;]

                            Unto the topic. I think that Meowth had done really well to maintain it's popularity by being a member of the Team Rocket grunts! But since that some of Ash's original Pokemon makes cameo appearances in some of the series' episodes too, I think that most of 'em maintained their popularity generation by generation.

                              well, they are quite known of course in the anime. But since we are talking about general Pokemon here, i think cameo appearances does not count as well unlike usage by players in battling.

                              Wowee, this certainly is impressive! Good work!

                              As for the topic of which Pokemon generates most hype, for me it'll always be Sandshrew. He's one of the main reasons I still buy the games! I also love to see the new takes on Grimer/Muk as there always seems to be a new one, and they're usually great! Eevee also helps to generate hype based on whether or not it'll receive a new evolution or two, and I think classics such as Pikachu, Mewtwo, Charmander, Snorlax etc will always be amongst the fans favourites to see how they've changed.

                                The hype for me in the new games is Charizard, if theres no possible way to get it, the game won't appeal to me as much as it should. I'm quite stubborn and picky.

                                Those are amazing userbars, wish i was talented in art :/
