  • Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

Have you ever hated a Poke`mon then loved it later?

I didn't like Electivire simply because his design was kind of ugly to me... ^^;

But once I bred an Elekid and started training him, I realized he was super powerful! Now I can overlook my shallow judgment and love Electivire~

There were also a few Pokemon I did not care much for, but after reading their trivia or "lore", loved a lot :D

I used to not like Scraggy and Scrafty, and I can't even remember why.

At this point, they're some of my favorites of Generation V.

Most recently would be Druddigon. Hated it because it's design and name were just ugh, but after training it up a little, I once again, fell in love lol
Don't get me started on Druddigon--I thought it was an ugly beast and I hated it. Then I caught one and started to train her. Negatron (it's a Family Guy joke) became my new favorite Dragon. And she's so adorable.

Then there's Sawk. Man, oh man, Sawk. I hated him. He was ugly, he was a pure Fighting type and I figured I would never, ever use that thing on my team at all, period. If I never saw one, then I'd be more than okay with that. Then I needed a Fighting type for Lenora's gym. I had two options: Timburr or Sawk.

After a wild Sawk fainted out two of my team and destroyed five Balls, I was speechless. I finally caught him, named him Tremblor, took him to Lenora's gym and walked out with a Badge in less than ten minutes. I went from grudgingly respecting Sawk to out and out loving him in less than an hour. How much do I love this guy? As of late, I do a run through on GTS for three different Pokemon--Golett, Golurk and Sawk.

What can I say? For a Fighting type, Sawk's actually pretty darned cute. :crush:

Reiniclus, or however you spell it. When I saw its sprite for the first time before B/W came out, I thought it looked retarded. But its official artwork looked amazing to me. It went from being my least favorite Unova Pokemon to one of my favorites.

I used to hate Pidgey and always opted to capture Spearow as my main bird in FireRed/LeafGreen over it. When I was stuck with it in a Nuzlocke run in LeafGreen, Pidgey actually proved itself to be not worthless to me and worth keeping around. Oh Nuzlockes, you make me love mons I hated before.
