    Buizel is fine the way it is.

    Some people feel evolution is necessary for good anime writing.

    Some are obsessed with it.

    Evolution is great, but it isn't everything.

    No need to get an erection if Gible evolves all the way.

    So having four water Pokemon in a row not evolving is better?

    Buizel has nothing to lose by not evolving. I can see why Squirtle and Corphish didn't evolve, Totodile was just screwed over by bad writing/pacing, but Buizel definitely should have evolved.

    Squirtle and Corphish were handled well, Totodile was not, that is the difference.

    Squirtle = no personality, average battler
    Totodile = tons of personality, underused, but not weak battler
    Corphish = less personality than Totodile, better battler than Squirtle, sort of a composite of the two.

    So Corphish was handled well. Squirtle definitely could have used more personality and more battles, while Totodile could have used more battles and Corphish got enough of both.

    Corphish was Totodile done right. You just have probably forgotten why people liked Corphish so much. When you get up to the Hoenn eps again, rewatch them and remind yourself why Corphish was so funny and well-liked.

    Woah, really?

    We don't disagree on a lot, but this just strikes me as odd. I'd take it over Squirtle and Totodile personally, but Buizel over all in my book.

    For me:

    Squirtle > Corphish > Buizel > Kingler > Totodile

    If we include Lapras, I'd put it right after Buizel.

    For me it's - Buizel > Totodile > Squirtle > Corphish
    I don't really count Kingler or Lapras... but I'd place Kingler last and Lapras as about equal to Squirtle
    Corphish wasn't THAT funny to me... and Squirtle was no better than Totodile in its original saga... it became super strong only in its later returns which will happen with Totodile too in the upcoming months
    Soon enough Scott won't be able to say they're weak anymore... because they'll get the same treatment the Kanto starters and Torkoal got

    Even if Totodile comes back stronger, I still doubt it'll reach the level of Squirtle, Buizel and Corphish.

    Torkoal was extremely weak during Hoenn, much more than than the Johto starters and Noctowl could ever be (or at the very least it was equal to them, you have to admit or else you're lying)
    Then Torkoal returned after a short time with Oak super strong with a new attack and almost defeated a legendary
    If Torkoal can (and let's face it, the Kanto starters did the same as Torkoal) then the Johto starters can too

    I agree. But I still don't think it will outshine the other 3 water pokemon.

    They're all equals - especially since the writers constantly play with their strength
    Every Poké will be as strong as the writers want it to be in this specific battle
    There's nothing more to say and we're getting off topic... so let's stop this discussion now
