    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    Last time I checked Grookey wasn’t blasted off every episode or starved like TR for its reactions. A Pokémon and it’s trainer are both involved in how a Pokémon is received. That just shows Grookey is in bad hands which worsens the issue.

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    Caused distress to a bunch of Falinks and Ash got blamed for it.

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    It’s honestly brilliant how quickly they managed to outdo themselves for the same title after Drizzile > Inteleon.

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    I mean, it’s more likely to stick in people's head if it’s used to kick start a bunch of episode plots. Grookey's misbehaviour is more prominently remembered than it being a shoulder warmer because that’s the only time it’s doing something. The audience will remember a character's negative...

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    I usually don’t being competitive logic into the anime, but it was pretty surreal seeing a Raboot (an inexperienced Raboot at that) take down a milotic when I’m pretty sure I’ve had grass types succumbing when pitted against it on Showdown.

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    The show really doesn’t consider him such though. He’s allowed to be toe to toe with foes whenever the plot requires. I still remember how convoluted Raboot vs Milotic was.

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    At least Togepi had sweet moments. The Houndoom episode was nice. Togepi was used in more creative scenarios to kickstart plots whereas with Groovey they resort to the same script: Grookey messes something up > anything but grookey faces consequences > episode plot

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    Not really. Rowlet got a decent story and at least tried to be competent. And it wasn’t actively malicious. Also Rowlet and Melmetal were actually cute together, unlike whatever puke-inducing "cuteness" they’re going for with Grookey. Grookey and Go reminds of those irresponsible small dog...

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    It’s just my opinion but applying the concept of "They got it because of Karma" to fictional characters is plain weird. No one is sitting here keeping score from across different series.

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    1. Well no one on these forums is doing the demonising, so I don’t know why you expect people here to explain that logic because… no one is demonising a child here in the first place. 2. TRio =/= Team Rocket the criminal organisation. It’s pretty clear the former isn’t the "poaching mafia" kind...

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    I mean, it literally is not a Mary Sue. The fact that Greninja can never win with the fandom can be demonstrated in this plus the controversial opinions thread. It might be the only Pokémon I've seen called BOTH a "Mary Sue" and "It’s bad and weak since it lost all its battles against...

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    I can’t even compare them, honestly. At least Greninja didn’t actively cause misery amongst people and Pokémon and force everyone to take blame for itself. Greninja is a victim of overpromotion whereas Grookey just likes being a little s*** that's enabled by its trainer, so I can’t see how a...

    Do you think Goh's Grookey is the worst starter a main character has ever had in the anime?

    If a CotD owned the Grookey, they’d probably have Ash and Go arrive on the scene, scold the trainer and have Go capture the Dragloak because the CotD was so horrible to it in comparison. But because apparently the main character is doing it it’s fine. Honestly the biggest problem for Go’s...
