The Favorite Pokémon Thread

(Generations 5 and 6)
Welcome to one of our newly revamped "Favorite Pokémon" threads, everyone!

Just like with its previous edition, in this thread you can vote for your favorite Pokémon and discuss anything you want about it—yes, anything! Does it have a unique type combination you always wanted to see in previous generations? Do you have a giant plush of the 'mon in your room? Did the 'mon strike the final blow in a battle you thought you were going to lose? Let us know!

In this thread, you can choose any Pokémon from the fifth and sixth generation, so any Pokémon ranging from Victini to Volcanion in dex order is fair game. Alola forms, mega evolutions, and alternate forms can also be voted here.

Does your favorite not belong to one of those generations? Fear not. We've got you covered.​

Zygarde. I love the amount of detail and complexity that went into it's role and overall design. It's different forms and how they're utilized to fulfill it's job make it a really fascinating creature to me...

I'm also a fan of its stat spread, and that HP stat in particular. Being so focused on stamina is something that really sets it apart from other Legendary Pokemon, as if the design and form changes weren't enough. I like when a Pokemon can last long in Battle, and its attack stat means that it doesn't just have to be a wall.

Lastly...I'm kind of a nerd for the super robot genre...Perfect Zygarde is just :cool::cool:

I love 5th gen so.... Swoobat, Lilligant, Archeops, Vanilluxe, Mienshao, and Hydriegon are some of my faves to name a few. Lillgant is my leading fave of the bunch, but there's a whole bunch I didn't list that I also love.

6th gen wise, I feel the same about it that I do gen 4. There's a lot of 'mons I love. But none of them stick out really. :/

My absolute favorite of this list is Volcarona. Really majestic. My Helios has been a vital member of my team.

Gen V? I've gotta go with Chandelure here. There's some other faces too, those being Swoobat, Scolipede, Whimsicott, Eelektross, and Durant.

Gen VI? Slurpuff all the way, with Dragalge, Goodra, and Trevenant close by.

Gen 5

Virizion, Snivy, and Samurott. All three are tied, and I can't choose just one favourite between them.
I think I've explained a million times on these forums why I love these Pokemon (since all three happen to be in my top 5 favourites spot), so I won't go into to much detail.
Virizion - Been a favourite of mine for years. Something about it's design just clicked with me.
Snivy - Got me back into Pokémon after I had a break for a few years. I love it's smug face and sleek design.
Samurott - Awesome design, and I enjoyed using it in Black 2. Love its shiny as well.
Other favourites: Black Kyurem, Krookodile, Gigalith, Mandibuzz, Braviary, Simisage, Scolipede, Escavalier, Victini, Zekrom, Hydreigon, and Mienshao.

Gen 6

Spritzee, Chesnaught, and Pyroar. Like Virizion, Spritzee's design just clicked with me, and ever since it's reveal its been a favourite of mine. It's just so damn cute!
Chesnaught just looks badass, and I'm so glad Chespin got it as an evolution. I know a lot of people were hating on it because it's design was too much of a drastic change from the rest of the line, but I think it's perfect.
And as for Pyroar, well I just love it's design (especially the female variant). I also had a Pyroar on my Y team named Fliker that is probably my most used and cherished Pokemon ever. She was/is awesome.
Other favourites: Aromatisse, Avalugg, Xerneas, Dragalge, Meowstic (F), Hoopa (Unbound), Chespin, and Yveltal.

In Generation V, I like Haxorus the best, for its design, great Shiny form and Mold Breaker, which makes Sturdy less annoying. Other Unova critters I like a lot are: Samurott, Zoroark, Sigilyph, Krookodile, Mienshao, Cinccino, Chandelure, and Reshiram.
In Generation VI, my favourite is Dragalge, for its Hidden Ability, typing and cool design.
I also like Sylveon, Aurorus, Heliolisk, Hawlucha, Talonflame, and Xerneas.

Gen V: Joltik. It's the cutest Pokemon ever, and captures all the cuteness of real life jumping spiders perfectly. Galvantula is almost as cute while also being really cool-looking. As for my other favorites... *takes a deep breath* Drilbur and Excadrill, Trubbish and Garbodor, Golett and Golurk, Terrakion, Genesect, Larvesta and Volcarona, the Venipede line, the Axew line, Pawniard and Bisharp, Rufflet and Braviary, the Tynamo line, Stunfisk, Scraggy and Scrafty, Dwebble and Crustle, the Chandelure line and Frillish and Jellicent all are utterly fantastic. This was a really good generation, IMO.
Gen VI: While the games themselves were a mixed bag, the new Pokemon were good. My favorite is definitely the Froakie line, which managed to become my favorite starter of all time despite not being a Grass-type. I'm also rather fond of Tyrunt and Tyrantrum, Sylveon, Pancham and Pangoro, Hawlucha, Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist and the Honedge line.

Gen V: Half the dex is really good and the other half is really bad. There's a lot I could list, so I'll try to keep it somewhat short: Reuniclus, Eelektross, Chandelure, Darmanitan, Accelgor, Volcarona, Galvantula.

Gen VI: For such a small batch I thought the group was great overall. Favourite is Dragalge easily, but I also really like Hawlucha, Heliolisk, Tyrantrum, Clawitzer, Trevenant, Diggersby, Pangoro, Malamar, Noivern, Sliggoo and Aegislash.

GEN V
The Reuniclus family is awesome, they look cute and weird.
Golett and Golurk are very good.
Venipede is cute and Scolipede is a very intimidating and unusual Bug-type. Whirlipede, ehhhh....
Palpitoad, Elgyem and Pignite are cute on their own way.
Reshiram is the only Unova legendary I like.

Gen VI
Zygarde is my love. :love: Specially its Core form.
Malamar, Pangoro, Dragalge, Tyrantrum and Gogoat have amazing designs.
Floette, Froakie, Clauncher and Goomy are interesting on their own way.
Greninja...IKUZEEEE

Gen V:


Possessed light fixtures. What’s not to love?


It’s so pretty and weird.


A perfectly poisonous pupa that uncurls into a massive majestic millipede. Awesome on so many levels.


Gotta love a fish out of Water. Especially when it’s derpy and flat as a pancake.


This crab knows fashion.


I love the rainbow dinosaur bird, even if its ability is a hindrance.


A special little snowflake with a lethal mustache.


Gen V was a good time period for Pokémon “facial hair”


I almost want to give it a hug. Almost.


My clear first choice for my Unova journey: the regal grass snake.


Another really lovely plant.


It has an awesome design and cool type combo, even though Fairies now make it fret.


See above. Also, I have a shiny one in White.


I love how it manipulates its arms using the little “organelles” floating inside it. What a creative design!


It’s a cute and sneaky leopard kitteh that mews.


I love how this badass mole curls up into a giant drill.


Wears that armor even better than Shelmet


Gotta give a mention to this cute Mythical. Its unobtainable shiny is the basis for a fun thread game I made.

There are more...

Royal serpent who's sick of you and your shit.


Kleptomaniacal black cat that gets out of trouble by being cute.


You spin me right round, baby, right round like a record, baby right round round round♪


Fat bastard of a sand caiman. :thumbsup:


Gotta love those eyebrows and that wicked grin.


Lizards? Mohawks?! Aw hell yea! I love these two! I always found it really cool how the shed skin formed "pants" and a "hood"


Haunted sarcophagus that scuttles like a cockroach? Yes please.


I don't hold these two as dearly as the others on this list, but I can definitely appreciate them, and I figured I'd give them some love.


Always loved both the fantastic concept and wonderfully smooth design.


I can't deny the floating electro-lamprey.


These three are absolutely delightful ghosts, with pleasantly gothic designs that I can always stick with.


Very smooth and complete design, pleasant colors. I wish the tusks were slightly more exaggerated, though.


Mismagius never felt very special, but these are some witches I can get behind. I'm a big fan of their accurately lanky fox proportions under all that fur.

Gen V continued:


Swadloon. Can’t forget Swadloon. I love this Leaf-wrapped grump.


I always found this trio leader cool.


The electro spider may not have eight legs, but it has my heart.


So cool, it’s a crime


I love my mummy!

Gen VI:


This jingly thing occupied my number one spot of all Pokémon during Gen VI. Love at first sight!


This fiery fox family is so darned awesome, especially Braixen.


We were overdue for a pistol shrimp Pokémon, were we not?


Another awesome, unorthodox fish with a neat type combo


Possessed trees? Yes please.


Pumpkaboo? Don’t mind if I do.


They’re cool no matter how you slice it


This has got to be one of the coolest Dragons yet.
