Nostalgia Blog II: My Childhood Hates of Gen I!

Rate this Entry
So, if you saw my previous blog, I spoke about the pokemon that I liked loads when I was a little kid playing Red/Blue, that I don't really like as much now. This blog is the opposite to that. So it's about the pokemon that I either disliked or hated when I was a little kid, that I really like, or that I like much more, now.

It's another nostalgia blog! (yay)

I liked Bulbasaur and Ivysaur when I was little, but I always viewed Venusaur as "ugly". I love it now though.

I never thought much of Vileplume. As was said in my previous blog, I was very much a Victreebel fan as a child, so there was no room for the other version exclusive in my mind. After speaking with someone here on Bulba, who absolutely loves the Oddish line, I've begun to appreciate them a lot more. Vileplume is awesome.

I just didn't like its design. Yeah, it's strong, but I hated it. Ala is one of my favourite Gen I lines now.

Maybe it was because of all the Tentacool in the wild that I despised it. I think using one battling competitively in Gen IV made me realise that it's not just a useless annoyance. Its design is also cool.

Ugh, look at that sprite. Need I say more about why I didn't like it?

Not sure why.

I thought it was lame and weak. Ha. I very much like Eggy now.

I only started liking this after realising what a monster Tangrowth can be. When I was a kid I didn't really care for a bunch of vines with eyes and feet.

How could I have disliked this?? I have no idea whatsoever.

I thought it was ugly. But now it's just cuuute <3

Scary! And I always chose the Dome Fossil because I preferred Kabutops.


My next nostalgia blog will probably be the pokemon that I have liked ever since the beginning, and I still continue to like now! See you then.

    Lol, that Omastar always gets me :D isn't it funny how a Pokemon's sprite can just turn us off from using it whatsoever? I know that's been the case with me; there are a lot of Pokemon I use now that I didn't before, not just because of the design but also because of the specific in-game sprite.
