Your Pokémon Team (Legendary, Fav.Type, Ultimate)

Standing Out

Ah, I like this. Something to get me thinking (why am I doing something thinky at 11:00 pm?).

My Legendary Team: Mostly just because they're my fav Legendaries, but I think the team at least has some merit if it were to be an actual thing:
  • Mewtwo: Mewtwo is my top 2 fav Pokemon of all time (pretty much purely claimed by The First Movie character) so of course he's here.
  • Zekrom: Representing ideals, which I often find myself trying to think and work towards. Plus the design is freakin' badass.
  • Deoxys: I love its concept, design, and abilities so much. The sheer versatility brought to the table by a single Pokemon is incredible.
  • Raikou: I just really like the way it looks.
  • Darkrai: The design is pretty awesome, and I like the way the nightmares work. It's not giving people nightmares just to be evil (well, aside from that one in Time/Darkness/Sky), but it's just an inherent part of its being that it can't turn off, causing it to be almost universally resented.
  • Solgaleo: I know we don't know that much about it, but damn, it's just so cool.
  • Arcanine, the Legendary Pokemon :p
My fav type team (Steel): It has naturally brilliant defenses which I seriously like. Lucario belonging to the type may be subconsciously influencing this too, who knows:
  • Lucario: That's right, anyone who knows me knew this guy'd be here. My absolute, without a doubt, 100% unshakeable favourite Pokemon of all time. It owes this spot entirely to Rio, a hacked shiny perfect IV/EV Riolu I received as a baby from a friend just as I was starting my first ever Pokemon game. Rio quickly grew into the most valuable member of the team, being the one to win most Gym Battles/Elite 4 matches/heck even the Champion of the region. Unfortunately once I learned the girl was hacked, she had to be left behind when the others followed me to Unova. To this day she remains, in a file that I will never delete, cherishing the memories of that journey we had together.
  • Aegislash: I like Steel Types, I like swords, so naturally I like a Steel Type sword. Aegislash is a brilliant Pokemon with some nice tricky strategies that I like to pull off. Easily my favourite thing to come out of Gen VI.
  • Skarmory: I can't remember what got me started with my love for Skarmories. All I know is the design is awesome and it's a great Pokemon
  • Steelix: Again, something's there that I like but can;t put my finger on. Steelix is just that cool.
  • Scizor: Awesome design, awesome stats and abilities make for an awesome Pokemon.
  • Empoleon: My other beginning partner, not quite as game winning a Lucario was, but still a lot of nostalgia to this guy.
My Ultimate Team: My favourite Pokemon are actually kind of unstable (aside from Lucario & Mewtwo at top 2), so this team could actually be rather different in a few days:
  • (Mega) Lucario: Lucario loved for the above stated reasons, Mega Lucario is just making awesome better.
  • (Mega) Mewtwo (X): Liked pretty much for the First Movie character, X is the Mega-Evolution I think looks best on it.
  • Lycanrock (Midday): I is happy we finally got just a basic wolf. No bipedal-ness, no bells and whistles, just a basic (if Rock Type) wolf. Wolves are awesome.
  • Aegislash: Liked for reasons stated above, as it turns out he's pretty high on the list right now.
  • Umbreon: It's got this look to it that I really like, and it's actually been pretty good in battles for me.
  • (Mega) Beedrill: Beedrill just looks really freakin' cool.
Wow, this one was harder than I thought. I have a lot of 'favourite' Pokemon, but listing them into a top 6 is hard.

Legendary: Diancie (Mega), Regice, Lugia, Jirachi, Kyurem, Lunala

Favorite Type (Water): Clawitzer, Omastar, Sharpedo (Mega), Starmie, Wishiwashi, Ludicolo

Favorite Type (Ghost): Gourgeist (Super), Sableye (Mega), Drifblim, Palossand, Jellicent (M), Mimikyu

Ultimate Team - Sableye, Stunfisk, Sharpedo (Mega), Omastar, Swalot, Hydreigon

Basically just top six for each save water, where I threw in Ludicolo cause I like it enough and having the entire team weak to grass and electric is no good. Starmie also probably wouldn't have quite made the top six but I wanted that speed.

Never been a huge user of Legendary pokemon but these guys are just badass

Entei, Rayquaza, Giratina, Darkrai, Deoxys, Genesect

These are all pokemon I have used in game and fallen in love with

Weavile, Houndoom, Zoroark, Drapion, mega Gyarados, Tyranitar

Personally I feel the Dark type has some of the best designs, they all look so deliciously dark

Arcanine Typhlosion Houndoom Blaziken Volcarona Talonflame

Such destructive beasts, and with great variety in their designs

Excadrill Rhyperior Nidoking Mamoswine Garchomp Golurk

As a planner & believer in coverage Ground is vital to my in-game teams. Love using these guys

Limiting this to 6 is next to impossible

Arcanine, What a beast. An instant favourite the 1st time I saw Growlithe as a 9 year old playing Yellow
Exeggutor, Not the most popular around but I've always loved the typing
Gengar, Always upset as a kid when I couldn't use him due to trade restrictions. Now use him in a lot of replays
Mega Ampharos, Always loved it and the addition of that hair & the Dragon typing only improved my little sheep
Weavile, The best design in the game imo. Shame about how fragile he is but damn he hits hard
Gardevoir, Just so strong & elegant. Fairy type addition didn't hurt at all

Special mentions to Lucario, Starmie, Excadrill, Houndoom, Heracross, Aegislash, Talonflame & Tyrantrum who just miss this list

Legendary Team: Mew, Diancie, Magearna, Rayquaza, Dialga, Yveltal

Favorite Type Team (Fire): Flareon, Infernape, Mega Charizard X, Heatran, Victini, Chandelure
Favorite Type Team (Fairy): Mega Diancie, Magearna, Primarina, Sylveon, Mega Mawile, Slurpuff

Ultimate Team: Raichu, Eevee, Lurantis, Weavile, Hydreigon, Diancie

The Ultimate Team's probably not accurate of my top 6 Favorite Pokemon~ XD Otherwise it'd probably be Raichu, Eevee, Mew, Diancie, and some Eeveelutions. I tried to add some type variety~ XP

I'll be honest, I had a really hard time with this because I really like so many different Pokemon and all the types, and my favorites aren't always the same, nor do I always want to use them. So not all of these are necessarily my favorites, but the ones I like best together. Anyway, here goes...


Regirock: Honestly, Regirock wouldn't have been one of my first choices, especially not as a "favorite" legendary, not even as a favorite Golem (that title belongs to Regice). But as I was bringing this team together he just seemed like a good fit to me.
Deoxys: Deoxys is one of my favorite Legendary Pokemon, and he would be the leader of this team, my go-to guy. Between the versatility of his forms and the fact that he is from outer space, I just really like this Pokemon and its lore.
Heatran: Heatran is another one that I wouldn't have expected to put on this list, but just like Regirock he seemed to be a good fit. Don't ask me why, it just felt right.
Latias: Like Deoxys, and like Hoenn in general, Latias is one of my favorites. She would be especially valuable on this team to provide air support and her speed and maneuverability is a good counterbalance to the strong but more solidly positioned team members like Regirock, Heatran, and Dialga.
Mewtwo: Mewtwo is the OG powerhouse 'Mon in my book, and because of the Manga he just seems like a solid and necessary counterpart to Deoxys.
Dialga: I had a few Pokemon vying for this spot, but ultimately Dialga one it out. Because who doesn't want a giant metal dragonic beast that bends time to its will?

Favorite Type (Ghost and Dark):

I picked these Pokemon because overall I think you can make a really neat spooky scenario out of them. Think about it:
You're walking through a wood, late at night. But it couldn't be late at night, could it? You only just saw the sun not five minutes ago. Or was it five hours? Suddenly you're not so sure anymore... You dismiss the thought, and look up to see the moon just as a deep haze enshrouds it. You stumble on a tree root and drop to one knee. You think you might have twisted your ankle a bit, which is odd because normally you're pretty good at avoiding injuries, even when you trip. That's when you hear the cackling behind you (Misdreavus). Or was it in front of you? You shudder and keep moving, slower and more carefully this time. An eerie whistling sound, almost like a song, can be heard on the light wind (Shiftry). You're beginning to feel very uncomfortable in this wood, and that's when you think you see a light up ahead - maybe a flame from a lantern (Chandelure)? You grip the sword you found earlier a little tighter and move towards the light as swiftly as you can, but you feel almost completely drained of energy (Honedge). Nevertheless, you keep going. You're will is strong and you aren't going to give up. Just a few more feet and you should be able to see where that light is coming from, hopefully a cabin. You just have to keep moving. You'll get there! You think you see a clearing up ahead, and with a final surge of energy you break into a run- just in time to catch your sleeve on a branch. You fall to the ground, and in your exhausted state it almost seems like the trees are closing in on you (Trevenant). You can almost feel their roots slowly wrapping around your legs... And that's when you see it. You're not entirely sure if you're imagining things at this point, but it looks like the angel of death, coming to greet you (M-Absol)...

Ultimate Team:

Flygon: Flygon has always been one of my favorite Pokemon. There's just something about him that's always struck a chord with me, and I can't even think of not having him on this team. He can fly the us where we need to go, he can whip up a sandstorm if we need to disappear, and he can hold his own if we are in a tight spot, especially in the air.
Sceptile: This guy has been one of my most memorable partners since nearly as long as I can remember. He's fast, accurate, and reliable, and really, really cool. He's always been there for me, and he deserves a spot on this lineup even if it means there are others who I can't have here.
Sneasel: Sneasel is actually the baby of this team, and I don't mean because he's the only NFE Pokemon. Each of the Pokemon on this team I have used on a team in one playthrough or another, and their persona's are maintained in this team. Flygon was from one of my first Emerald playthroughs, as a trade from one of my friends or my sister. Sceptile was my first starter in Hoenn, when I played Sapphire, and we have a lot of great memories. Sneasel is from my second Soul Silver run, and he was a staple of the team. So he's actually got plenty of experience, but he's still new compared to the other guys here.
Noctowl: When I was scrolling through the list of Pokemon, I came across Noctowl and I realized he just had to be here. He, along with Feraligatr, were part of my first Soul Silver team, and I love owls. Even if he wasn't the best combatant all the time, Noctowl always gave it his all and pulled through when we needed him. In a team that was and is sorely unbalanced, Noctowl suffered immensely at the hands of electric types. But he never gave up, and was always there for support even when he couldn't provide any offensive help.
Feraligatr: As I mentioned above, Feraligatr was my starter Pokemon on my first run of Soul Silver, and I love him. I love Totodile, and I always felt that this buddy of mine kept his sense of humor and willingness to just let loose and be jovial even after evolution. He may not look it, but my Feraligatr is caring and understanding, and probably would take a leadership role in this team o' mine. Though Sceptile and Flygon are older, Sceptile is quiet and Flygon is more of a follower.
Typhlosion: Even though all of these 'Mons could be considered veterans, with the youngest one being Sneasel from a four-year-old team, Typhlosion is really the true veteran, and next to Feraligatr the best team member to lead. He is from my original play of Crystal version back in my younger days, and he is my main man through and through.

Honorable Mentions:
Charizard: From my original Leaf Green version, this Charizard was the first Pokemon I ever grew to level 100, and it took me probably over five years to do it. Yeah, I'm slow. But this Charizard is one of my favorite Pokemon I own.
Empoleon: My partner from my first play of Diamond version, I traded this brave soldier to my friend so I could start over, and he went MIA before I could get him back. Rest in peace, my dear friend...
Torterra: My partner in Platinum, he and his whole team were trapped in another dimension when my dog chewed on the game cartridge and I was unable to retrieve any Pokemon from the game. Gone but not forgotten, you and your and sisters live on in my heart.
Gyarados: From a more recent Leaf Green run, Gyarados was a teammate I could always count on.

So there you have it. And still there are others that I would like to add.
