Favourite Fighting Type
This, gadies and lentlemen, is how you make a Fighting type Pokémon.
What more can you ask for from a Fighting type than it being made of about 70% leg? That's a whole bunch of leg that can be put to use cracking skulls open. Hitmonlee, unlike other Pokémon on this list so far, has a relatively simplistic design, but no so much that no thought has gone into it. This is because Hitmonlee is a character than can be very easily posed into some cool situations - Hitmonlee has had some of the best in game sprites out of all the Pokémon, in my opinion. Hitmonlee's Yellow, Gold, RSE, DPP and HGSS sprites all make it look like he's about the leave your Pokémon a bloody mess. And really, how much cooler does it get when you've got that level of drive?
"When kicking, the sole of its foot turns as hard as a diamond on impact and destroys its enemy." At one point in the battle, you're fighting an opponent with feet, and then suddenly, whoa hey where did those feet go they're hard as diamond now! That has got to switch the game up quite a bit. "It is also called the Kick Master. It uses its elastic legs to execute every known kick. " It knows every known kick! It's not only a great fighter, but it's also super intelligent! So, hey, catch a Hitmonlee and he can beat up all the bullies and do your homework for you! What a brilliant companion!
From a competitive standpoint, it's got good Attack to compliment his Fighting type moves as well as good Speed for an RU tier Pokémon, plus it's got Reckless Hi Jump Kick. So yeah. Go out and kick stuff.
In conclusion - Hitmonlee Feet. Every Other Pokémon - We Are In Pain
Least Favourite Fighting Type
This, meanwhile, is how you should never, ever make a Fighting Type.
I mean, really? Do I really need to express my feelings regarding this line? Just look at them, they have the most horrific designs that I have ever seen. And as a non-competitive battler, sure Conkeldurr can be good in battle, but that doesn't prevent it from being a wrinkly old clown bodybuilder child molester. Look, I physically cannot put into verbal talk things how much I outright despise the design of these abominations. The Pokémon designers have churned out some absolute stinkers in their time, but these guys really take the cake. These are outright the worst designed Pokémon that have ever been produced, in my opinion, and...
... and I can't look at them anymore.
