Easy question.

Mine is Roxie. While Koga was the main icon of Poison-type for some time and I really like the fact that he's a ninja, I like how Roxie acts, the connection to Koffing, her underground gym and her Scolipede themes.

Plumeria was somehwat nice but I hated her connection to Skull.

While not only Poison-only, I like how Jessie and James started mainly with Poison-type Pkmn and their hair colour seems a note to that.

Plumeria! I’m biased in favor of Alola though so no surprise there aha. loved her personality, she was especially cool in Masters. Roxie is probably a close second, mostly for her design ❤

Roxie is my favorite. She's charming, and her singing "Dogā"—still not sure what happened to the last syllable lol—is one of my favorite parts of the B2W2 soundtrack. Plus, she's that feisty kind of smol, and I love how she sticks it to her father!

I voted for Koga because he his promotion between games from Gym Leader to Elite Four isn't detailed and leaves a bit of fun guessing about what led to it.

Also he's a ninja and ninja are cool.

Klara; I mean, I love her personality and music the most anyway but she's also the only one with character development, so it's not much of a contest. (Okay, that's not entirely fair to Plumeria, but I do think Plumeria was underused, whereas Klara is one of the backbones of the IOA storyline.)

Plus she's named Klara and in this house, we already stan one Clara so it's like second-nature, lol

I'll go with Koga. The fights against him tend to stand out to me. He's also the first character that comes to mind when I think of Poison type specialists. His relationship with Janine and his promotion in the Johto games is also pretty interesting.

I also like Plumeria, especially in Masters, so she'd be a close second. She gives me cool big sis vibes.

As a fellow bassist, it's only natural that I gotta rep the team and go with Roxie.

That and she's just awesome in general. :bulbaLove:

Roxie, I guess, because her gym theme is cool.

...

I don’t really hold any strong opinions on the characters in the core series for the most part.
