Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.
Wartortle is my favorite. I love the Squirtle line the most of all the starters. Other second form starters that I like are Quilava, Croconaw, and Dewott. I tend to think of the second forms as the "awkward teenager" stage of the line, because I often think they are the ugliest of the starter lines.
Watortle and Quilava are tied. I think they both look adorable.
voted for grovyle & dewott because i think those are the two that look a lot better design-wise than their fully evolved counterparts.
grovyle has those simple, neat-looking leaf-blades & an overall sleek appearance whereas sceptile just looks rather awkward... the yellow balls (?) on its back always bewildered me.
dewott manages to be both cute and fairly badass at the same time. you can definitely see the concept of a samurai behind its design. samurott, on the other hand, just seems like an odd progression in evolution. we go from an otter-based pokemon to one based on a sea lion? alright then... :/
Quilava definitely owns. I like how the flames could be regarded as "hair" XDD
Grovyle because of his speedy looking frame.
Combusken cuz I find it cute XDD Looks like a kid wearing chicken clothing.
Prinplup - no reason. I just like the Piplup family XDD
Servine cuz it looks sleek and slender and sharp
Dewott for having two shell blades, and definitely looking more impressive than Oshawott.
I have mad love for Croconaw. It was just so boss lookin' in Crystal compared to big, ugly Feraligatr. I kept my starter as a Croconaw. I trained him to level 75+ until I stopped playing. The battery likely died by now...
I also quite like Wartortle because of its ears and tail; they resemble sea foam / bubble waves. In one run in FRLG, I kept my starter as a Wartortle. I went to look at the sprites and omg I had no idea its BW2 sprite looks so polished.
No Grotle love AT ALL? Wow. I enjoy him but I limit myself to a few when voting so I did not vote for him.
I voted -
Ivysaur - my favorite of all. Just looks so amazing. I wish that I could find him in the wild.
Bayleef - Same as Ivysaur just not quite as amazing looking. I am in the middle of SS with a Bayleef that I love and am thinking of not evolving.
Prinplup - I just think it is adorable and quite useful.
The middle evolution tends to be my favorite. I always fall for the "you are so ugly you are cute" things, although some of these are generally cute :)
If at first you don't succeed, warp reality till it fits your demands ;)
