Top 5 Coolest/Dumbest Pokemon

Gaming Union: "One of the greatest debates of the Pokemon franchise is whether or not newer Pokemon have been dumbed down in appearance.

Regardless of your stance on this argument, one fact remains, each generation has had its share of Pokemon within the cool or downright dumb looking variety." (3DS, Nintendo DS, Pokemon)

Come on where's Lucario?
ShawnCollier  +   565d ago
Needs more Blaziken.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   565d ago
Typhosion is definitely my pick for the coolest, with an extremely close second being Charizard, followed by Blaziken, Absol, and Deoxys.

Not a fan of Pokemon but I know people that are and they wont play the new games because of the new pokemon.

Those people are blinded with nostalgia of the first games.

Gen 1 and 2 had it fair share of stupid uninspiring designs like muk, voltrob, ditto, sunflora etc.

Why I REALLY HATE people who can only like Kanto, aka Pokémon fan wannabes. I don't get their mentality. The game is not set in Kanto and has new Pokémons, so the game automatically sucks? Why don't they look at their precious Gen 1, and see that it has a lot of problems too? The game wasn't as deep, there were lots of glitches and bugs, they had a lot of freaking unimaginative Pokémons, etc. It's not like Kanto Pokémons aren't even in the newer games. But I guess if hating the newer gens because of something stupid like "derp. My friends will think I'm not cool if I don't hate on Pokémon", then good for them. But they're seriously missing on games that still pump out quality and quantity.

"derp. My friends will think I'm not cool if I don't hate on Pokémon"

Those same friends still walk around with a gameboy advance to play leaf green and fire red.

I don't like pokemon but I also don't bully people who do like pokemon.

I'm not saying EVERYONE who likes Gen 1 is a blind nostalgia freak, or that they are just liking it for the sake of being popular with their friends. However, from personal experience, in both school and online, it just seems that people hate the newer gens because they have ugly Pokémons, despite Kanto also having some of the stupidest and ugliest Pokèmons in existance.

You say your friends "still walk around with a gameboy advance to play leaf green and fire red." But, don't you also have friends who try to seem like a "Nerd" by pretending to wear glasses, have T-shirts saying they are nerds or play videogames, etc? Don't you also have friends who wear Pikachu-related clothing and say they are huge Pokémon fans, despite having NEVER played any Pokémon games?

You can say I'm bullying people who like Gen 1. Who I'm not bullying are people who like Pokémon without influence from friends, fearing they'll be left out for liking Pokémon. You personally like Kanto better than the other regions? Hey, awesome! I like Hoenn personally, but I also find the others unique and interesting. But if you're constantly hating on newer regions because "they're ugly! Pokémon's running out of ideas! Kanto's the bestest!", then of course I'm gonna hate you.

TL;DR
Pokémon fan wannabes should stop trying to act cool. Have your own thoughts, and see that every regions has it's ups and downs, whether it be with Pokémon designs, the story, the enemy team, etc.

Personally, here are my top 5 coolest looking Pokémons in no particular order
•Blaziken
•Hydreigon
•Darkrai
•Rayquaza
•Arcanine

Dumbest designs? There's a lot, but I'll only pick 5
•Voltorb/Electrode (I'll count this as one)
•Geodude
•Stunfisk
•Sawk/Trow (I'll count them as one)
•Timburr/Gurdurr/Conkeldurr (cheating, but all 3 are equally as fugly)
Nerdmaster  +   565d ago
So, it's a list about design of Pokémon but it doesn't have pictures. Fail.
lizard81288  +   565d ago
Agree. I had to use google images for some of the newer pkmn, since I don't remember what they look like offhand.
abbyrose  +   565d ago

MewTwo has always been my favourite I know that it's mostly everybody's favourite but he's a badass a science experiment gone wrong that's just cool. Dragonite is one my favourite Pokemon also I have a lot of favourites but he's in my top 5 :)
