Thread: Favourite and least favourite Kalos Pokemon?

    Default Re: Favourite and least favourite Kalos Pokemon?

    I am extraordinarily partial to Dragalge, and delighted that there is even a Pokémon in existence based on the weedy sea dragon. Its splendid typing is a cherry on top! Maybe even two cherries.


    As for my least favorite, that honor goes to Binacle, no doubt. I can't even appreciate the concept. It is some kind of awkward, petulant-looking arthropod that is also a hand. Er, hands. Really, everything about it is unsavory, from its palette to its faces. Even its X Pokédex entry is especially ridiculous, and considering the absurdity one regularly encounters in the Pokédex, that is really something:

    "Two Binacle live together on one rock. When they fight, one of them will move to a different rock."

    Not only is this utterly underwhelming, I am also having a difficult time reconciling the bizarre contradiction.

    Taking its evolution into account, as well, it just ends up somewhere between silly and nightmarish. I would simply rather have nothing to do with this aquatic abomination and its angry puffy palm-cheeks!

    Favorite: Chesnaught
    The whole family has pretty good design, but at Stage 2, Chesnaught also has really good move variety. It's also the only Grass starter I actually adore, which means something.

    Least: Carbink
    I don't mind Honedge and Magneton and such, but I still can't comprehend what this... thing... does. It has a really odd stat distribution and if you ask me its design is almost too simple.

Unfortunately many of its stats are a so low even a Mega Evolution wouldn't help it. Despite that all that I think it's a cool Pokemon. Aurorus is my third favorite.

    Least Favorite: Talonflame. If it didn't have Gale Wings nobody would use it. It's annoying and its model is ugly. If it weren't on nearly everyone's team, I'd probably like a lot more. I'm just really quite tired of seeing it.
    What's Gale Wings? I don't have it on my Talon, and I couldn't care less. She's awesome.



    Anyways, I have no idea why, but I adore the Inkay line. Same goes for Aegislash and Florges. But I think my #1 fave is Delphox. Greninja can go jump in front of Darkrai's Dark Void for all I care. It's more overrated than Pikachu (who I actually adore!)

    Anyways, Chesnaught and Greninja's overrated butts are my least faves, but I actually like all 72 Pokémon design wise. Considering I haven't trained the vast majority of the 721 Pokémon, that's all I can rank them by.

    Favorite: Pangoro. Possibly my favorite fully evolved Gen VI Pokemon.

    Least Favorite: Carbink. I wouldn't say I hate it, but I never really understood it. I know it's has a connection to Diancie, which is obvious, but it still took me forever to fully get why it was made other than to have another new Fairy pokemon.

    Gale Wings gives +1 priority to any flying type moves. It's the signature ability of Talonflame.
    It's really the only competitively used ability for it.
    Pancham is super cool 'tho

    Well my baby has Flame Body and I'm 100% satisfied with her. One thing I will say, I didn't like her design before Fletchinder was revealed. I thought it was a horrible design for a two-stage bird. Somehow I fell in love with her after realizing she was three-stage and I adore her after having fought nine months together.

    Since I really love all 72, this is going to be tough...

    Favorite: Probably Dragalge. I love its typing and design, and when I first saw Skrelp, I was sold. The same could be said for Talonflame, but hey, it's number 2 to me.

    Least Favorite: Like many others, Carbink. Not that I don't like it, I just don't understand it. After using it, chances are it'll prove better than misunderstood.
    I have claimed: Staraptor (01/12/13), Shiny Stone (02/12/13), and Limber (02/12/13).

    Honestly, I think Carbink is cute. :P But I guess the reason behind it is Diancie. Diancie is diamond and exists only because it mutes from Carbink, a piece of coal. So it only exists for that one detail about Diancie. Also it's cute and the Rock/Fairy typing just screams jewel Pokémon.

    Really? You can use a Talonflame without Gale Wings? Maybe your Talonflame is blessed by the RNG with good IVs in Attack or something, but even with Gale Wings for me, Talonflame is pretty darn useless.
    My planned dream team- in the works (eventually)

    PM me if you wish to add me as a friend on the 3DS!

    Official Claimer of Oblivion Wing on 3/15/14, of the Relic Crown and Enigma Stone on 5/17/14, and most especially Arcanine on 7/5/14! Also, I claimed Tiki and Robin from Fire Emblem, but that doesn't matter too much. Oh, wait, there's also the Hookshot, Dragonstone, Thoron, and Crusader Blade. I have way too many claims...

    Well, I don't play competitively. In-game, even a Sunkern can take down a Gyarados if you train it the right way.

    Favorites would be Fennekin & Vivillon, and I'm not really sure I have any that I don't like. Goomy & Talonflame are super popular, apparently, so I kinda steer clear of those, but I wouldn't say I don't like them. They have their perks. .-.

    I'd have to say my least favourite would be Aromatisse because, while it is a Fairy type (and I like Fairy types,) I just can't get over that abysmal design. Runner-ups are Barbar... whatever and Diggersby.

    As for my favourite, I'd have to say Xerneas because it has a very good design (I like dear-like Pokemon for some reason) and it can be devistating in battle if it has a Power herb and Geomancy. Runner-ups are Delphox and Sylveon.

    Aurorus would have to be my favorite. I was never a huge fossil fan (minus Aerodactyl), and this one was so cute and elegant that I just love it.

    I have a lot that I don't like...but I'd have to go with Dragalge for worst. I don't like his design, and the seaweed look is just gross to me.

    What? Carbink is one of the most awesome new pokemon! Its life is so totally different to all the others! It lives underground slowly absorbing geothermal heat and storing it as energy over hundreds of thousands of years before coming up to the surface world. How is that not cool?

    I would even say Carbink is one of my favorites. I also like Phantump and Trevenant because they lend themselves nicely to dark fantasy roleplays, Binacle (but not Barbaracle, ugh) and Skrelp/Dragalge because they add a lot of depth to the pokemon ecosystems, and Spritzee and Aromatisse because cute bird designs always get me (Hoothoot! Natu! Pelipper! Torchic!)

    My least favorite is Florges. Its preevolutions are okay, but I just hate the way Florges looks. The poofy flower thing just makes it not look like it belongs in pokemon in any way. I don't know. It's a very weird thing to dislike.

    IMPORTANT EDIT: It turns out that I actually made all that stuff up about Carbink. But I prefer to keep thinking of him like that even though it may not be true!
