A different approach on a bandwagon

Rate this Entry
With everyone posting lists of pokémon, be that their most loved or hated pokémon, I decided to do something rather different. Not a big fan of bandwagons, so this is rather different, yet still in the same vein as the other in one way. I went through the National dex, splitting up the generations to see what generation's pokémon I liked the best. I based it on a simple, yes/no-system where I either approved of a pokémon or did not. This was mostly based on visual design, with little to no focus on battling skills. Of course, I could have made things a little more complex by replacing the yes/no-system by percentages and then calculating the average percentage of each generation, but I'm not in the mood of ranging every pokémon by a percentage score right now. I could also have made it even more complex by factoring another were I rate their battling skills as well, but that would have been a too much waste of time. Pokémon with multiple formes have been evaluated more like an average, for instance when evaluating Rotom, I take into account that it has multiple formes to use.

After compiling the list, it was a simple matter of finding the percentage of pokémon I liked in each generation.

    Wait, didn't Ghetsis-Dennis tell you that judging Pokemon based on visual design is stupid and only stats and movepools matter?

    You be crazy, man.

    Yes, but Ghetsis-Dennis will not disagree with you if you claim otherwise, because that might lead to a flamewar and he doesn't want that to happen:

    I bring forth a differing opinion, backed up with my army of flaming men.
