Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

In Pokémon Black and White, you're given the chance to obtain either Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour, depending on the starter you chose. These Pokémon are super-effective against whatever leader you wind up facing in the first gym, whether it be Cilan, Cress, or Chili. So, anyway, what are your opinion on these monkeys? Did you use them in any of your battles? How long have you kept them on your team?

I really didnt care much for the monkeys. I thought their design was meh and they usually ended up being used for Cut only...
I just think BW had many Pokemon that were waaay cooler to have than those.

I recall in my first playthrough of White, I ended up using Pansear's evolved form, Simisear as a member of my Legendary Weapons team. It was either my third or fourth highest leveled member of the team. I recall I chose not to evolve Pansear into Simisear until it was level 43. After using one of the Elemental Monkeys on one of my teams, I figured not to do so again.

    I chose Oshawott so I ended up with Pansear, sadly the little fiery monkey starts off weaker than the other two, and while I do like these monkeys he still ended up getting boxed.

      My Pansear got permaboxed once the fight with Cilan was over. I never planned on using it.

      As for the monkeys in general, I'm meh on them. Panpour is probably the best, but it's still not something I'd really like to use on my team permanently.

      I used my Panpour for a while, but then got rid of it for a Pansage somewhere. I really like the elemental monkeys, they're cute and not bad.

        Got Pansage, not too thrilled as mentioned above, he was my HM slave. I didn't even evolve him, poor poor Pansage

        I love Pansear and Simisear tbh. Simisear's lil' White, furry bolero like thing is just so cute and fabulous. <3
        Plus I actually love the monkeys' movepools. They're very fun to play around with. c:
        If I ever get one, they stay in my party until the end of the game, so they usually show up in my Hall of Fame. They've always had the ability to really become a front-runner for the E4 for me, too. .3.

        I like Pansage, mainly because of Cilan and then its design -- I like it when I first saw the leaked images! :D :D

        I used Pansage until I reach Pinwheel Forest, I replaced him with a Petilil. T^T

        When I first played through White, I used my Pansage for the whole game along with four others of mine.

        But in most other regular playthroughs, I never really cared for them after a while in the presence of stuff like Darumaka, Frillish and such. Although in my Wedlocke, my Simisear lasted to right after the sixth badge before dying.

          In my first play through I had Simipour on my team all the way until I beat the Pokemon league, but it didn't get used a huge amount.

            I found them to be useful for the first gym or two, but afterwords, their usefulness was pretty much outclassed by other pokemon. I had a Panpour in my first run through that I boxed almost instantly after getting through Pinwheel Forest, simply because there were better pokemon to fill its spot on my team that did its job better.

            They're decent enough to get you through early game, but they quickly stop being your best option.

            The elemental monkeys have nice designs however, and if you really wanted to keep one on a team, they can continue to be passable. However they're never get to be much more than just that; passable.

            During my first playthrough, I tried training my Pansear at first but it was rather weak and proved to grow too slowly, plus it did not live up to my expectations as a permanent member of my team. After a while, I grew tired with it and boxed it. There are other better fire-types out there such as Darmanitan and Chandelure anyway. As for the gym battle, I used my Lillipup to completely destroy Cilan's team, endofstory.

            I chose Snivy on my White, so I got Panpour. I don't like any of the elemental monkeys; I don't like monkeys in general, and the Unova elemental monkeys just aren't terribly good...but for some reason I used Panpour/Simipour all the way to the Elite 4. Maybe I'm crazy or something.

            In Black, I wound up getting Pansear. I've used it only to defeat the first gym, and kept on it on my team for a while only for HM reasons. As soon as I got a hold of Biberal, I got rid of it. xD;; It's not a bad Pokémon or anything, but I'm just not too fond of its design. Its stats aren't that great, either, and it also cannot learn as much HMs. In White, I obtained Pansage, which had received a similar treatment.

            I chose Oshawott in White so my monkey was Pansear.. which did help me quite a bit in defeating the gym leader, I'll admit. But I don't like them too much outside that so I ended up boxing the little guy after the first gym.

            Sorry, Pansear! :(

              I generally use whatever monkey I get for at least a while. They've got decent (though certainly not great) stats and pretty good movesets, so it's not like they're bad or anything. Sooner or later though, I end up replacing the monkey with something else that'll do the same thing better.

                I'm not a big monkey person in Pokemon, so after a couple gym leaders, it was time to be boxed.

                  I'm not a big fan of monkeys in general (whether Pokémon or not), and I didn't like the design of these in particular. That said, I used my Panpour/Simipour longer than I normally would have because I was ridiculously proud of the nickname I gave her: Artemistia. Artemia is the genus that brine shrimp belong to. Brine shrimp = sea monkeys. And "mist" is self-explanatory.

                  I don't remember when exactly I quit using it, but I think I made it my HM slave for a while after that.

                    I chose snivy my first round in Black, so I got Panpour. I thought he was a cutie, but I never actually used him, haha. I instead just beat up the gym with my itty bitty lillipup. vuv
                    I'm not a fan of taking a lot of time out to raise just one pokemon, so since my main two [Snivy and Lillipup] were over-leveled to levels 14 and 15, I just boxed it and carried on.
                    I have to say though, I think Pansear is a total cutie. Its evolved form is probably my favourite, because I think Chili's a cutie and I dig the funny little posture Simisear has. xD

                    To be honest, don't like any of the 3 elemental monkeys, nor their evolved forms.

                    My white and my black games both times I choosed Oshawott - both times got Pansear, but I boxed it right away - never brought it out again.
