Basically, overall, when it comes to 3-stage lines, which part of the line do you most often prefer?

Base Forms:


Middle Forms:


Final Forms:


(these are just random examples, btw).

Anyway, Middle Forms for me. I tend to like quirky Pokemon, and the Middle Forms are often the quirkiest. Grotle, Graveler, Gamagaru, and Gabite are examples of this.

I usually like the final form, they are usually the coolest.
However there are several exceptions, such as wotter's middle form, and daburan is on the same level of coolness to Rankurusu.

I like the final forms, typically. They have better designs, and better stats

I can't vote in this poll, simply because, it all depends on the pokemon... for example, I prefer kirlia over gardevoir or gallade, but I LOVE ME SOME AMPHAROS. also, I prefer dragonair over dragonite, but I also prefer flygon above his pre-evos. So, it really all depends on the line :)

Impossible to pick. Just like garrinikole, I have no favourite. It all depends on the chain. For example, I think Larvitar is OK, Pupitar is a dick, and Tyranitar is awesome. The Kibago chain speaks for itself. But i think Mijumaru is dweeby, and Daikenki is a rip off of Dialgia. But, wow, look at Futachimaru!

Base forms are the cutest and most innocent looking.

Final forms for the most part. There's some middle and base forms I like as much (Oddish, Ralts, Kirlia), but the final Stage always is my favorite.

Usually I think Middle stages are the most interesting. It's just like a combination of the cuteness of the first stage and the awesomeness of the last stage.

And thank you for using Skiploom in your examples!

Using Bulbasaur sprite -> Instant Base Form vote.

I would choose that either way, though.
The only reason I don't really use them is the power.
If there would be SOME WAY [other than hax] to Bulbasaur have same stats as Venusaur -> More Bulbas on the go.
Then again, that would break the game BADLY, but that's just me.

I would say the Final forms, because they are often the most powerful, and usually have good designs.

Extremely hard to tell, as pointed out. But I suppose the majority of my favourites are Final forms so I guess that'd be it.

Final forms. Many of them look better and are stronger.

I'd say Final Forms, because, otherwise, they seem incomplete, like they have more training to do. Also, I can't stand Chikoritas, but Bayleefs are fine with me. Meganiums? All the better.

I pick the final forms because they usually have access to better moves, are stronger and have better designs. However, when it comes to Gible, I love all of his forms.

Middle forms. A majority of my favorites are middle forms, such as Bayleef, Quilava, Gabite, Dragonair, Grovyle, Janovy, Futachimaru, Pikachu, Ivysaur, Croconaw, you get the point.

I'd like to say that it depends on the pokemon, but in reality, I alternate between the base forms and the final forms. The middle forms, I don't care much about (with a few exceptions, of course).

I love the entire Bulbasaur line to the max as it is, so I can't really choose which one I prefer, but while I love both Squirtle and Blastoise, Wartortle creeps me out. I hate Treecko and Grovile but I love Sceptile, I really like Ampharos and Pidgeot but could care less about their prevos, etc.

I'll choose the base forms because you just happened to have a Bulbasaur sprite, but really, it's a tie between them and the final forms. I rarely care for the middle forms.

I voted for middle forms, though truthfully it varies between them and the finals. I also tend to like some of the weirder pokemon, and a lot of them fall under those stages in particular. I think the mid-forms might just edge out finals by a smidge though. I guess it's because a lot of the time they get the best of both worlds. Which is to say, the cuteness of their pre-evo and the coolness of their evolutions. The starters in particular are like this. Combusken is my favourite pokemon, but then there's Grovyle, Wartortle, Ivysaur, Bayleef, Monferno, Futachimaru, Chaobuu.

Mostly final forms, but there are several exceptions, like I like Elekid, but don't like Electabuzz, I like Pichu, but don't like it's evos (especially that fat Raichu).

Final Forms without hesitation.
They are almost always the coolest out of their respective family trees. (Except Wartortle... he's an exception IMO.)
