It's one of the best-looking Bug-types in my opinion. Also, it looks super rideable. Its Speed Boost Ability was its selling factor for use in competitive play but not anymore thanks to Dexit.

Gallade is pretty cool! I have a Nightmare Hypnosis one in Gen 4. It has a really good move set and can use a lot of different moves. Also it levels up in the Slow experience group.

I think I've seen pictures of it from before Sword/Shield came out, and it looked pretty, but that's about all I know about it.

Dawn’s was absolutely iconic, and it and it’s evolutions are fun to battle with!

It has this Baby Digimon-sort of cuteness to it but its evolution overshadows it in every way possible.

I like the concept of it having two different forms, but that's about it.

It's just a crab, nothing special tbh.

It resembles lots of different animals, but yet doesn't feel like a hybrid. Eevee's unique in lots of ways: it has a Z-Move that's a status move even though the base move is an attacking move, it has the most amount of branched evolutions of any Pokémon, and (while this isn't exactly unique,) its evolutions don't share any types with it. It's cute, though I like its evolutions better. Dang, I got ninja'd.

Alright, Slugma...I like the concept, and I use it often in the Pokémon TCG (though that's just because it's in one of my favorite theme decks), but it and its evolution are unfortunately lacking in competitive prowess. If Slugma and/or Magcargo's stats were better, I'd more likely use them in my competitive teams.

Another crab Pokemon. Kinda cute though, I guess.

It was clearly meant to be a Lucario Mk2 in terms of marketing; but the magic just disappeared the moment Gen 5 began breathing.

Pitiful furbait aside I don't like its design and it doesn't kowtow to my tastes, but I'll give it credit that it has a nice overall palette and does execute its youkai inspirations more fluidly than Lucario's... whatever vaguely "Anubis" look was supposed to be.

One of those gen 8 Pokemon I don't know too much about, but from what little I know about it, the concept sounds neat.

Second favorite Pokemon, yo. I like the fangs, the surreality of the design itself, the fact that it was inspired by a youkai, it has a nice Shiny, and I like it's Mega (too bad Megas aren't here in this gen. Oh, and it's a cutie~

Tall palm tree is tall. It has a cool typing too.

I like the coloring of Shiny Umbreon. I wish Umbreon's base stat spread wasn't so defensive, though.

Younger me liked Blaziken. Adult me isn't too fond of it.
