Happy New Year Everynyan! Welcome to the twenty-third instalment in the Video Games Forum's new weekly series of polls!

Centered around the Pokemon series of video games, these polls will be based on the various different aspects of the popular video game franchise. Every Monday, a Video Games staff member will post a new poll that'll remained stickied up on top of the forum. Suggestions for polls and questions can be sent to Joshawott, and they could possibly used for new polls (credit will be given, of course).

With that out of the way, here is the poll: Who is your favourite early rodent? This poll was suggested by The Spaceking.

Does anyone actually like them?

I dislike them all, but I picked Bidoof for being one of the best HM slave in pokemon history. Plus, I used Bibarel against Giratina - Shadow Force and Shadow Claw were useless XDD

I like raccoons, so I picked Zigzagoon. It's cute and it has a great ability.

But, for the record, I like using Raticate's Super Fang for catching other Pokemon.

Sentret,for the design. I always catch one in Johto games as it can cover most types with it's large movepool and it's stats are decent enough.

My favourite early rodent is Bidoof because it is the only one of the 5 early rodents which evolves into a Pokémon with 2 types, Bibarel with the types of Normal and Water and the type combination is unique.

Rattata. It's one of the first Pokémon I caught, and I like rats. :p

I pretty much dislike all of them except for Sentret. Sentret and Furret have cool designs and a very varied movepool.

Furret has the best design out of all of them and has a surprisingly good movepool, so I went with that. Raticate is a close second, however.

Ratatta. I actually often use Raticate until midgame, as it retains its usefulness for quite a while with its Hyper Fang/Super Fang combination.

I think Bidoof/Bibarel has the best stats, but Sentret is my favorite, because it's cute and I love Furret. But I always had a hard time finding them in the original G/S, because I usually played it at night.

Rattata. None of them are particularly great, but the rat's high Speed makes it the most useful in-game, and it isn't as annoyingly common as some of the others.

I chose Zigzagoon. I think it's cute and I've used it many times.

Although based on second stages like Furret the best. It's just cool looking.

I picked sentret out of all of them I like his design the best, I'm also surprised at the time I'm posting this no one has picked patrat yet but it is opinion, I think sentret looks really cute which might be odd to say but oh well

Zigzagoon. Aside from the fact that it's cute, it learns headbutt, a 70 base power move, at level 10 already which will probably be the strongest move at your disposal for a while.

Though I never really use any of them, I would have to pick Rattata, since I prefer Raticate to the other evolutions. Sentret/Furret would come in a close second though.

I picked Zigzagoon, but it was a tie between it and Sentret. They are the only two I like, even though I don't use them except for HMs.

Sentret, because Furret's design is neat. Though this wouldn't have happened if Patrat was stronger because I was told that the Unova Pokemon are nothing but powerhouses (even the weakest full evos).

I picked Sentret, because in the early days of me playing Gold and Crystal (before I knew any better) I'd actually capture one, and use it until I had six better things
