The Favorite Pokémon Thread

(Generations 1 and 2)

Welcome to a newly revamped "Favorite Pokémon" thread, everyone!

Just like with its previous edition, in this thread you can vote for your favorite Pokémon and discuss anything about it. Do you like its design? Or its typing? Was it your Most Valuable Player in your team? Or your most prized card? Really, feel free to go wild with your appreciation toward your favorite!

In this thread, you can choose any Pokémon from the first and second generation, so any Pokémon ranging from Bulbasaur to Celebi in dex order is fair game. Alola variants, Mega Evolutions and other formes can also be voted here.

Does your favorite not belong to one of those generations? Fear not. We've got you covered.
So, who is your favorite?

Clefable - I have a new found appreciation for fairy types, I'm not sure what sparked it. But I really adore how simple Clefable is design wise. I have about 2 in game, and plan on breeding for a shiny one. Definitely my favorite mon as of late.

Arcanine - Someone very dear to me traded me a Growlithe named Cinnamon. Since then I've just loved how majestic it is.

I love about 100 other 'mons for silly reasons but I tried to limit myself. :p

I have a few favorites, but I'll just say the Cyndaquil family, who I always chose for my Johto starter, and the Pichu family. I have a shiny Alolan Raichu named Honey Butter. I spent so much time trying to get it through the Masuda Method.

Gen I? Obviously Gengar. I'm not really a fan of most first generation's Pokémon as a whole, if I'll be totally honest.

Gen II? This is trickier. It does contain my favorite starter line, the Cyndaquil family, and I like Crobat, Togepi, Togetic, Scizor and Houndoom too. It's too difficult to narrow these down to one pick. :/

Gen 1

Jolteon, hands down. Been one of my favourite Kanto (and just in general) Pokemon for a while. I love it's design.

Other favourites: Ninetales, Dragonair, Venusaur, Arcanine, Persian, Abra line, and Pidgeot.

Gen 2

Raikou of course! It's an electric Saber tooth tiger, what's not to love? Without a doubt one of my favourite Legendaries, and my 6th favourite Pokémon.

Other favourites: Tyranitar, Houndoom, Magby, Typhlosion, Ho-oh, Scizor, Espeon, and Skarmory.

Generation I: Arcanine. It looks majestic and has a good movepool with moves like Wild Charge, Close Combat and Dragon Pulse.
I'm also fond of Fearow, Starmie, Lapras, Ninetales, Sandslash, Nidoking, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Gyarados, Gengar, Articuno, and Moltres.
Generation II: Tyranitar, for its great design and movepool. Other favourites are Skarmory, Azumarill, Espeon, Umbreon, Heracross, Scizor, Lanturn, Kingdra, Houndoom, Raikou, and Lugia.

Generation I: While I'm fond of the Bulbasaur line, Snorlax, Shellder and Cloyster, the Nidoran♂ line and the Gastly line, I was especially fond of Scyther. It was my all-time favorite until...
Generation II: Scizor came around. I'm also rather fond of Heracross, Lugia, Gligar, Dunsparce and the Larvitar line. Hell, Lugia's my favorite Legendary to this very day.

First Generation: easily for me the Eeveez are top favorites (Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon) and the two fox Pokemon (Vulpix and Ninetales) are my most favorites, I also like Meowth and Persian

Second Generation: once again, the two Eeveelutions take my top vote (Espeon and Umbreon) I also like the three legendary kitties (Raikou, Suicine, and Entei)

GEN I
Squirtle and Bulbasaur are great, and Charmander a bit less great. But all 3 are among the few Pokemon from gen 1 I can call cute and they bring me back memories from my childhood.
Snorlax is chubby and very funny overall.
Magnemite, Ditto and Poliwag have very curious designs.
Blastoise, Charizard and Venosaur are among the best designs from fully evolved starters, even after 20 years.
Articuno and Mewtwo have very strong designs.
Pikachu, I choose you!


GEN II
Most base stages from this generation have something that makes them very cute. Special shoutouts to Phanpy, Teddiursa, Pineco, the starters, Hoothoot and Chinchou.
While Politoed, Heracross and Hitmontop are fully evolved, they also have very memorable designs that look strong and cute at the same time.
Lugia is one of my favorite legendaries.
Unown is very weird so I love it.

top six for each

Gen I:


Gen II:


while I have many problems with the immensely overrated gen I, I have to admit there are a sizable amount of pokemon from it I like, especially with the advent of alolan forms. Gen II doesn't have a ton of things I care for, but it's better than gen IV, at least.

Both of these are in a random order.

Gen 1: Overrated thanks to nostalgia goggles, but I have plenty of favorites from the very first gen.
Tangela, Omastar, Exeggutor (Alolan), Starmie, Weezing, Porygon, Dragonair, Cloyster, Victreebel, Zubat, Golbat, Parasect, Mega Pinsir, Magneton, Muk (Alolan)

Gen 2: I'm pretty indifferent towards this generation for some reason...
Mantine, Crobat, Magcargo, Furret, Misdreavus, Ledian, Shuckle, Gligar

Gen I:


This drowsy-looking chrysalis is easily one of my very favorites. Seeing the giant one in the anime as a kid may have helped me love it.


These magnetic eyeballs were always cool in my book.


This beady-eyed lump with stretchy legs is one of my favorite Fighting-types.


What’s better than a starfish? A bejeweled starfish. What’s better than a bejeweled starfish? A double-decker bejeweled starfish.


Try and tell me that this isn’t the cutest lil’ fossil Pokémon.


A mass of vines wearing boots. Why not?


Let’s not forget the purple poison poofs.

07CFF04B-7FB1-45C3-82DE-F470561A0F25.gif

Mega Charizard X deserves a mention for being one of the select few Megas I genuinely like.

Gen II:


I’m batty over this bat. Makes the whole line cooler.


I love this armored orb of insect.


Another great Bug/Steel type.


My fascination with pupae continues.


This fiery badger is absolutely awesome.


Because sea dragons are cool.

Ahh, Gen 1. For many, it represents the best of this franchise (I personally prefer Gen 3 but that’s another story). Here are the ones that are my favorites. To save space, I’m only listing three.

3. Snorlax

How could you go wrong with Snorlax? He’s one of the most iconic Pokémon of all time. Such a simple, but appealing design. A personal note: at the end of June 2017, I had surgery to correct a curve in my spine. Throughout the operation, my favorite Snorlax plushie was by my side. Because he helped me through these hard times, I’m putting him here on this list.

2. Blastoise

Eat your heart out, Torterra! Blastoise is the true king of all turtle Pokémon! My favorite feature of his are those badass water cannons. When I first saw a picture of Blastoise, they were the first things that caught my eyes.

1. Gengar
7AD5E97D-C55D-42CC-B0EA-D1FB426AE5A7.jpeg

I was very torn between Blastoise and Gengar for this spot, but I’m going with Gengar. He is Ken Sugimori’s favorite Pokémon to draw, and I can see why. Look at how simple his design is. If he had been created in Gen 6 or 7, he would probably have all sorts of unnecessary clutter and details.

Honorable mentions
Bulbasaur

Lapras

5. Gligar
DF9F0CEF-4EF5-40C9-8A90-4AEFF5236D8B.jpeg

This happy little scorpion-bat makes it to number 5 on my Johto list. I’m severely afraid of bats in real life, but I can’t bring it upon myself to hate Gligar.

4. Togepi
5A4E6E88-D878-43C8-B1A4-737FEAC0D456.jpeg

One of the first Gen 2 Pokémon to be revealed, Togepi is a divisive one amongst fans of the anime. Angry Misty fanboys whined about how Togepi allegedly “ruined” Misty’s personality (what little personality she has, mind you) by “softening” her up. While the hatred has died down over the years, it still lingers among certain parts of the fandom *cough cough Pokemopolis cough*. However, I’m happy to say that I have loved Togepi from the moment I laid my eyes on him.

3. Typhlosion
C9F96B7B-55A3-4F61-A16E-366136C57685.jpeg

I used to think Cyndaquil was the cutest Pokémon in his line. I have since given that honor to Typhlosion, now that I have seen how badass and adorable he is,

2. Totodile

WANI WANI WANI WANI WAAAAHHH!!!!
