An adorable and highly useful Grass Mon. Easily one of the best in the first gen and tends to not fall into the trap that most Grass Mons get saddled with (namely having an atrocious move pool).

The first regional bird to not suck, and was easily the best... At least, before SwSh added a certain metallic corvid.

Like it better than Blaziken and Infernape, but I still prefer Samurott and Serperior as far as fully evolved Unova starters go.

mostly neutral towards it, but it's cute, though!

Super menacing, especially in the anime. It's reasonably good in game too, albeit could be better in competitive. A great type combo though, I prefer it to Skunktank.

Looks cool, and I love its cry. It is a shame it is outclassed by Corviknight.

It's kinda ugly, IMO. A hippo that lives in sand is a pretty cool concept, though, so it's not really bad. Its sprites were also a lot better than its 3D model

One of my all-time favorites, right up there with Charizard. Also my very first Pokemon in the main series games, so Blaziken means a lot to me.

Looks better on paper than it does in practice. It should be a physical rather than special mon.

It is ugly, and I greatly prefer both Galarian Slowbro and Johtonian Slowking.

An interesting take on a type of seahorse with a pretty cool typing. It's one of the few Dragon Mons that don't fear Fairies. Shame it's so slow, though. It was also one of my first shinies in my earliest Y run that I got via chain fishing. Overall, not bad.

Overrated Godzilla expy trash. Can't stand it. It's one of the reasons why I don't like Gen 2 and most of the Mons it introduced.

Not as goofy as Marshtomp and Combusken, but I still don't care for it.

“Animal + element” Pokémon are my favorite kind, and Arcanine is one of my go-tos when I think of them. Great design, nice reference to Chinese statues, all around just great :)

Has an interesting gimmick with its gender differences. Males being more support-based while females are more offensive-based. Their abilities also match this distinction. The male is better designed, however, as it looks more natural compared to the female. Too bad they're not that great in-battle but still a fun idea for a gender difference gimmick that isn't so heavily one-sided.

Speaking of gender difference gimmicks: Vespiquen

I like it, it’s cool. It’s in pretty dire need of a buff though, never been as strong as it looks sadly. If they ever bring back megas that’s one of the first they should get to. And it’s long past time male Combee were allowed to be anything but totally useless lmfao. A drone counterpart to Vespiquen would be dope
