Name up to 5 Pokemon from each generation that have the coolest designs ever!!

In my opinion, gen 3 and 4 have the coolest Pokemon ever, with gen 3 being at the very top.

Anyway, my own opinion is :

Gen 1 - Starmie(and Staryu) , Vileplume, Vaporeon, Jynx, Seaking (many more like Lapras, Gyarados, Hitmonlee, Machamp and Scyther)

Gen 2 - Girafarig, Foretress, Mantine, Scizor, Steelix (also Corsola, Octillery, Crobat, ,Misdreavus)

Gen 3 - Beautifly, Loudred(and Exploud), Milotic, Lunatone and Solrock, Crawdant, Gorebyss, Ninjask, Torkoal, Spoink, Masquerain, Sharpedo, Aggron, Chimecho, Slaking! Damn! I know I only said 5 but gen 3 is full of cool Pokemon!!!

Gen 4 - Hippowdon, Infernape, Roserade, Carnivine, Drapion, Kricketune, Yanmega, Tangrowth, Electivire, Toxicroak, Cherim, Gastro.... So many once again!!

Gen 5 - Carracosta, Galvantula, Amoongus, Jellicent, Heatmor, Scolipede, Palpitoad, Volcarona, Unfezant... Many more.

Yeah, what about you?

This isn't really discussion-based, so I'll move it over to Pokémon Voting Polls. :]

Some regions I could've easily had 10, others had me struggling to come up with more than 3, but here are my top 5 from each region, order by Dex number:

Kanto: Charizard, Ninetales, Gengar, Starmie, Gyarados
Johto: Crobat, Umbreon, Slowking, Heracross, Tyranitar
Hoenn: Sableye, Aggron, Zangoose, Absol, Rayquaza
Sinnoh: Honchkrow, Lucario, Weavile, Porygon-Z, Giratina
Unova: Excadrill, Sigilyph, Chandelure, Haxorus, Hydreigon

Found it interesting that 13/15 of my first three gens of Pokemon were already said in this thread, but only 4/10 for Sinnoh/Unova up to this point.

Hold your breath.
Make a wish.   Count to three.

Hmm tough choice.

Gen I - It's either Articuno or Vaporeon
Gen II - Corosola, Celebi
Gen III - Linoone, Zangoose, Milotic
Gen IV - Gallade, Azelf
Gen V - Bisharp, Conkeldurr

I calculated two factors : Style and Originality.
