    Audino. <3 They can't hit too hard, but decent defenses, good HP, Secret Power, Attract, and having Regenerator as an ability can make them deadly if you have the patience.

    I never expected to like Sawk; I hated the design and wasn't fond of pure Fighting types. Then I needed a Fighter for Lenora's gym and was left with Timburr or Sawk. So I tried for Sawk.

    After losing a lot of Great Balls trying to catch this guy, I capture him, drag him to the gym and watch him level the place. I'm duly impressed and decide to keep him on my team. I now adore Sawk. I think the big blue brawler is epic beyond belief.

    Dude, seriously--go for the Golett. I love mine like you wouldn't believe. /shameless plug


    Oh, come on! What were you expecting me to say?! You're looking at the crazy Golett lady over here!

    I knew there was at least one person on here who liked Golett a lot. Once I get through this week of work I'll begin raising one properly. I am debating already whether I will want to evolve it or not when the time comes as the one I had lying around in my boxes (one I caught just to see what it was like) has been tearing through most things I run into.

I guess Lillipup/Herdier/Stoutland also counts, since I didn't really think much of them until I used them and saw how good they really were.

    I still hate the elemental monkeys as much as I always did though.
    I've been considering looking at the Lillipup line for a bit, I might try that. And seriously, is there anyone who didn't find the elemental monkeys a *huge* disappointment?

    Durant, I used it in Black not sure what to expect but when it has Hustle, Hone Claws and Physical Attacking moves it is flawless! I've really grown to like Durant and its definitely an under rated Pokemon IMO.

    It's true. He's become really helpful, especially since I can use Power Gem, Zen Headbutt, and Water Pulse with him. And he's shiny to boot!

    It's pretty useful in HGSS if you started with Cyndaquil


    Wiggly Fucking tuff, plain, outdone by Clefable, not particularly good at anything, but heavens, it was fun to use it! mine knows an array of special moves making her have total coverage (IIRC).

    Out of the Unova Pokemon, I didn't expect to like the Sandile line all that much, and I never really did until I caught N's Sandile in W2 (I tried training a different one once; only got it up to Krokorok before I was like "screw this"). Buuuuut Krookodile is a beast, and it's become one of my favorites.

    Out of all the other Pokemon, hm. Slugma/Magcargo. Primarily because the thing is slow as hell (and I prefer using faster Pokemon), but I once ended up using it in a playthrough of SS, and like Krookodile, it turned into something made of sheer awesome.

    To be honest, I've never really used a steel type before, but I was presently surprised by Ferrothorn. Seconded on Slowpoke, by the way.

    Looking at the Gen 5 Pokemon, I overlooked Volcarona at first, but after seeing it among the top BW Pokemon, I revisited it, and it became my favorite Pokemon.

    Conkeldurr. Frankly, I think its design (along with Gurdurr's) is terrible, but after putting a Timburr (which is adorable) on my team after finding out about its stats and potential and raising that Timburr to a Conkeldurr, I must say its become a staple on my team and a force to be reckoned with. It pretty much solo'd my friend's team, smashing everything he switched out.

    Infernape - I was originally going to pick Piplup in Platinum because frankly I didn't like any of the starters...but then I remembered the trouble I had been through in previous games trying to get a fire-type so I picked that (only to find out you can get Ponyta pretty early on.. Oh well) It turned into a freaking beast! Cut to a few months later and suddenly for the first time since I discovered Missigno I had a level 100 Pokèmon; Daisuke the Infernape. Cleverly enough I taught him moves that could counter any of his weaknesses (unless its a Water/ground...). It taught me that not only was Chimchar now my favorite Gen IV starter, but it also taught me to appreciate the fighting type, since then the type has always had a spot in my party.

    Siglyph, Galvantula, and Lucario. Haven't used them till gen 5, and now my team is pretty awesome. Siglyph was expected as I've kinda mastered Psychic flying Pokemon, all 2, Galvantula is an incredible speed demon, and Lucario is pretty damn versatile. Lucario is overrated sure, but that's why I'm finally using it, to see what all the fuss is about.

    Ampharos. I'd look at it's Smogon stats and cast it aside, but now that I actually use it in White 2 I found out that that thing is a MONSTER. Seriously.

    Also Conkeldurr. I just wanted a Fighting type for my White team, and it ended up being an extremely effective sweeper. I practically soloed Grimsley with this guy. And he was pretty underleveled for League standards.

    I never thought I'd like Galvantula, and when I tried my cousin's, I decided to train one myself.
