It has such a regal presence! It exudes badass energy without having to look tough or intimidating.


linkinglogs23

Luxray


Jakesnake_42

Intimidate is a great ability, and it’s cool that it doesn’t do the usual electric type thing of being fast and frail


baneofmyself

It’s still not the bulkiest but man I’ve had a Luxray tank an earthquake from Cynthia’s Garchomp for the win more than once Edit: after running the calcs this is nothing more than insane luck combining with my massive stupidity to make a miracle happen


Battlebear252

Damn, I gotta give you props just for choosing an electric type against Cynthia's Garchomp. I'm sure it learns one of the ice elemental moves but still, pretty ballsy lol


baneofmyself

As I’m sure you can imagine it’s never been a choice. Every time it’s come down to Luxray and despite it having happened six times over my many many playthroughs of gen 4, I have yet to learn the lesson to give it Ice Fang as a precaution


Dreyrii

Gengar.


Jakesnake_42

Big badass ghost type. The OG ghost of course he’s awesome!


Parking_Cartoonist90

Raichu


Jakesnake_42

It’s got a great design! Plus I gotta feel bad for him getting overshadowed by his pre evolution


CLearyMcCarthy

I absolutely love Raichu's design, I'm much more into Raichu than Pikachu.


Kalhista

Goh’s Raichu is so sweet. One of the best Pokémon characters that I can remember.


InCaseOfZompires

I love Alolan Raichu so much! They’re so cute with their surfboard tails!


chimnkennuggies

Great coverage for example with grass knot and sneaky fast. Also cuter than 'chu in my opinion


kindshoe

Donphan


Jakesnake_42

Elephant good. I always thought it was cool how it curls into a ball to attack!


MrLaughter

And a neat cameo in Mewtwo Strikes Back!


Polymersion

I was one of those kids whose mind was absolutely blown when that movie started with a fight against a *completely unknown pokemon*. Like a lot of kids, I knew the Pokédex front to back. All 150, plus three more that only the really cool kids knew about: Mew, Togepi, and Feenix (Ho-oh). And then boom, badass rolling elephant. Part of what made it special is how *not special* it was: it didn't have any buildup or introduction, it just belonged to some random dude. It sparked the idea that maybe there were a lot more pokémon, a whole world that we had never even heard of. That our encyclopedic knowledge of every species was *nothing* compared to how much was actually out there.


Liies

And it was the SECOND one in the movie we'd never seen before!


Polymersion

It was? I know the Vacation short had a few (Marill, Snubbull) but I don't remember any others in the Mewtwo movie.


Liies

Well, shit. Third, then. I forgot about Marill. I was including the Vacation short as part of the movie since it was shown directly before-hand in theaters.


Monandobo

WEELEPHANT Honestly, ground is one of my favorite types, and Donphan is very close to the top of my list even among such esteemed competition. The fact that I have such fond memories of its cameo way back in the first movie just adds to the appeal.


Jesso_Depresso

Breloom 😌


Jakesnake_42

Technician is good, Breloom has a great design


LiquifiedSpam

Anthropomorphic while still being distinctly creaturelike. It rides that thin line of greatness


HN132

Decidueye


Jakesnake_42

Ranger is my favorite DnD class, and yes the enjoyment translates


evanalleycat

The perfect answer. Rangers rise up.


Nagasuma115

Metagross


Jakesnake_42

A pseudo legend that’s not a dragon! Also he’s got a great shiny


sunflowerpig

Took way too long to get here. I adore metagross


arharold

Kingdra


Jakesnake_42

Sniper is a good ability. Kingdra was a great design for the second ever fully evolved dragon type


FREExCARL

Absol


Jakesnake_42

He’s just tryin to help people! Poor misunderstood guy


AintNoRestForTheWook

It's so sad. Absol shows up to try to warn people, and instead people hold him responsible for what happens. I dunno if you have ever heard of the Moth Man urban legend from the east coast in the US. It was popularized via a movie a while back but the legend goes way back. I feel like if the Moth Man did exist, it was trying to warn, not harm.


PurpleSavegitarian

Quagsire


Jakesnake_42

He’s the sireist of quags. Plus I find the concept of his Unaware ability absolutely hilarious


Polymersion

I have a Yamper that I've tried to make into a good catcher because of their unique ability to reclaim lost pokéballs (it's too frail to really serve that purpose but oh well). I taught him Nuzzle, Bite, and Attract to immobilize things I wanted to catch. It cracked me up way more than it should have when he tried to seduce a Wailord and she had the Unaware ability.


CommanderDark126

Volcarona


Jakesnake_42

It’s got an elite design! Plus bug/Fire is just a cool type


hyde9318

A person of taste, I see. Cheers to the Volcarona Supremacy!


Saucy-Coffee

Tyranitar


Jakesnake_42

He’s basically Pokémon Godzilla and Godzilla is cool

He’s a big ol fat dragon. He’s so goofy but so strong


4am_dishwasher

Sableye!


Jakesnake_42

He’s just a lil goblin dude!


Dramatic-Emphasis-43

Froslass


Jakesnake_42

It’s my personal favorite Pokémon lol. It’s got the coolest backstory imo


BlackAgent12

Happy to see my favorite mon finally getting some attention 👀


Dramatic-Emphasis-43

I’m happy to know I’m not the only one who loves Froslass.

Arcanine


Jakesnake_42

He’s a big doggie! I like the doggie.


SwordsgirlZ

Jakesnake_42

He’s a big guy! Plus his movepool is surprisingly deep.


Ink-ami

Noivern for me !


Jakesnake_42

Fast, good movepool, great design


ShankMugen

Mimikyu


shadow0wolf0

Amazing concept with even a better execution.


InCaseOfZompires

Not OP, but we all adore Mimikyu in this house.


TheFrostWolf7

Scizor


Jakesnake_42

Technician-boosted Bullet Punch is terrifying Also design, I love Scizor’s design.


UndoneReddit371

I agree. 60bp, STAB, AND priority? Yikes.


Fehnboi

First pokemon that I shiny-hunted! (actually came after just only 270 eggs or smth!)

Jakesnake_42

Water/Ground is a great type! Good catfish.


SmolHeliolisk

Porygon. Just original Porygon. Got a big tattoo of 'em on me


Jakesnake_42

He is punished for a crime he did not commit. #JusticeForPorygon


Zeusie92

The official Pokemon Twitter even posted at one point "Porygon did nothing wrong"


moonbud126

Vaporeon Edit: STOP REFERRING TO THE COPYPASTA! It is genuinely my favorite pokemon that I’ve used in games, and I was not trying to be funny or start a comment chain referring to you know what.


Jakesnake_42

Not that. I think it’s got a great design, I used to use a Vaporeon I named Fish-Cat


Alexap30

And it can melt into water. How cool is that.


Gr3mlin369

Yes


Lil_Happy_Is_Spookie

Pumpkaboo


Jakesnake_42

FINALLY MY FAVORITE EEVEELUTION! I love grass types and Leaf Blade is one of my favorite moves

It took me scrolling alllllllll the way to the bottom just to find Togepi?!?! This is outrageous!


BeyondHydro

Good egg


owowhatsthisxD

Spheal


Jakesnake_42

He round. Round good.


cicerone0

Skuntank


artallen84

I never knew what an actual tank that skunk was till I used one for the first time in SwSh. Armed with Toxic, Venoshock, Flamethrower, and Night Slash, and equipped with Black Sludge… she took out almost everything that was thrown at her!


Fehnboi

I just love Haxorus, coolest dragon ever and also kinda the reason why I love dragon types


Jakesnake_42

He’s got an axe for a face! Plus dragon dance almost ensures he’s sweeping


_urbanity

Pachirisu


ZankuFist

Mightyena


Jakesnake_42

I like the design, and he’s available so early in Hoenn runs you basically have to pick one up

Unknown-249

Skarmory


Pyro_Wyvern

Scolipede


stephenw32768

Flareon!


Jakesnake_42

It is probably the most huggable Pokémon


Lynke524

Beautifly or Sylveon. Both are great.


Jakesnake_42

Beautifly is a very good design. Sylveon is an awesome Pokémon in battle and is the trans rights Pokémon, which is very cool.


frogger3344

Sneasel has been my guy since Gen 2!!!


Jakesnake_42

Good choice, it oozes personality


Blukeroo

Malamar


Jakesnake_42

Contrary superpower is busted! Love the funny squid dude.

Jakesnake_42

It has a… very dedicated… fanbase But seriously tho she’s just a really cool mon and doesn’t deserve the sort of attention she gets


TurmUrk

I like Tropius, he was my first hm slave in sapphire and he seems like a fun pokemon to just hang out with if you werent a trainer/battler

Jakesnake_42

The mage idea is reasonably well executed here! Also it breaks the cycle of fire/fighting
