I didnt see last week's question so I'll answer it in addition to the current one.

1. Purple! Various shades. Its my favorite color and I find it very calming which is the main reason I like it. NGL I would love to have a pale purple house one day.

2. Lugia is my ultimate favorite. Its a cool, majestic legendary that caught my eye and I got attached. Ever since watching the second movie I loved Lugia and started playing the games because Lugia was on Pokemon Silver Version's box. It holds a really special place in my heart and there really is no Pokemon I love more. Its just a cool Pokemon and I love it.

My most favorite Pokemon is Pikachu. The thing is that, rabbits have always been my favorite animals, and when I was little I didn't knew Pikachu was based on a mouse. So I thought it might be based on rabbit, and started liking it.
And I also love the friendship between Ash and his Pikachu in the anime, another reason why Pikachu is a favorite.
I had also really enjoyed playing Pokemon Yellow because we get Pikachu as starter in it.

Honchkrow, was the best Pokémon in my first team during my first playthrough of Diamond and I've been enamored with it ever since! Oricorio is a close second.

sableye is my #1 favorite, namely the vanilla form, though I like mega sableye almost as much. It's a ghostly hopkinsville goblin with crystals growing out of its body, it's such an amazingly cool concept that I couldn't not consider it my favorite. Especially considering I have an interest in both supernatural creatures and extraterrestrial life. It's also an incredibly fun pokemon to use, especially in its base form; this is why the prankster nerf makes me so angry. Sharpedo, stunfisk, and swalot are some other pokemon I am very fond towards.

Wow it's only halfway through the week and we've gotten so many replies already! Welcome to those new to the thread, hope you stay around to answer more fun questions in the future!


My favourite Pokémon has to be Gallade, back in Gen III, I loved Wally, he's such an inspiration to me. So when Gen IV came around with Gallade, I just knew it matched him perfectly.
The typing is a cool too, Fighting/Psychic, he has a great moveset and is a good attacker too. I love the design, just everything about Gallade. :bulbaLove:

Before Gen IV, my favourite Pokémon was Flygon, such a cool dragon type (though super annoying in Pokémon Ranger :p)
A special mention to Wynaut because :wynaut:
Another special mention to Toxapex for my favourite Gen VII Pokémon, a cool Water/Poison type with a neat design and Pokédex entry.

Surprisngly, it's not Wooper.

My favouite Pokémon is Umbreon because it reminds me of my old dogs (both black Dutch Shepherds) and because as a kid I was afraid of the dark (and I still keep a nightlight in my room, mostly because I don't like the dark, I don't fear it anymore), so I'd imagine having my own Umbreon with me to light up rooms or the outside whenever it was dark. Sappy maybe but it is how it is lol.

Golurk.

That big lug is the reason I enjoyed Gen V and the reason I got hype for Unova. The moment I saw it, it seized my heart in its hands and refused to let go. And I didn't put up a fight, either.

I've wanted a robot Pokemon for years and Golurk was the answer. I adore that big foolish ghost-bot; it'll always be my baby.

I call it "scream therapy" but if you Google scream therapy that's not what it is. Basically I put on headphones, turn up the volume really loud, and put on some rock or metal and just scream along to the lyrics really loudly. Bust out my ear drums and my vocal chords but I always feel better afterwards. I only really do this when I'm super stressed out th0, and apparently the neighbours can't hear me so nobody cares.

If I'm just relaxing without being super stressed out I'm either sleeping (I've been known to sleep for like 24 hours before) or lying in front of the computer like a useless lump, shitposting on Discord.

I do a variety of things to relax but I'll just keep it to two.

The main thing I'll do is have a cup of coffee because to me nothing relaxes me like my coffee. Whether it's taking a break at work and walking to go get one, clearing my mind in the process or it's just making one at home, just sitting back and drinking a cup of coffee puts me in a relaxed mood.

Beyond that I'll listen to some music. Preferably not the hard rock/metal/grunge music I normally listen to, something more peaceful, like maybe some anime OST.

Generally, I try to do things that really occupy my attention or keep my mind off things to relax. That's usually either playing video games (sometimes mobile gacha ones since those are grindy and give me something to focus on and feel like I'm actually making progress with, but they're also not particularly difficult so they're easy to just sorta play like a zombie) or listening to music. Though paradoxically with music, I oddly don't like "relaxing" music to relax to lol. I have to listen to stuff that makes me want to dance in my seat or get up and dance a bit while lip-syncing haha. It helps me focus solely on the music and the lyrics rather than the otherwise very frequent worries on my mind, and sometimes moving around while listening to it lets me work off a bit of extra energy and get ready to wind down.

Reading also helps me relax, but unfortunately I don't read much anymore. But over the summer when I would read a bit of the Fafner in the Azure novelization, it definitely helped me sleep a little easier since I guess it relaxed me.

Go to my local park like today and generally take a walk around downtown and admire the scenery. It actually does de-stress me a lot because the park is just so... peaceful. Everyone's walking their dogs, jogging, generally in a good mood and whatever. It's the perfect place whenever I just want to walk around or sit down on a bench and just zone out, especially while listening to music!

It's something I really need to do more often!

That's something I like, too. Although I have the problem of not having the park near enough, a neighbor that has an aggressive dog that she swears wouldn't do anything and not knowing how to drive. However, the times I go there, I end up feeling refreshed and relaxed.

I tend to do stuff like just chat with people on Discord. I can spend hours just talking to people and not realise.
Other things I like to do is just read stuff, or play a simple video game like Sonic Mania or Pokemon. If a game's too complicated though I'm just likely to come out of it more stressed than I went in.

I blog. If it's been particularly stressful, I'll post a cat video. Sometimes I'll post poetry or gather together some links for my Weekly Reader posts. If someone did something really egregious, I make an @$$hat of the Week post.

I'm on WordPress, if you're interested.
