    - Infernape I used to hate by his design, but he's alright in my book nowadays. Alright, but not great. I have yet to really use him.
    - Lucario similarly got an upgrade from alright to pretty awesome in my book when I used him in a recent playthrough. His design's grown on me, and he's a solid teammate.
    - Toxicroak was never my thing. Not a huge fan of his design and never cared to use him in battle.
    - Gallade I've always been fond of, especially since I used him in a Platinum run. He's got a good design and has been a solid team player.

    Gallade and Lucario are pretty close, so I'll let Gallade have my vote in anticipation of the many, many people that are likely to vote for Lucario.

    Gallade, because he's under the Indeterminate Egg Group, which is my favourite Egg Group. It's not a meaty reason, but it's my reason!

    Thanks for reading.

    Infernape: Caused quite a bit of anger for usurping Blaziken's typing and being designed after one of the most overused (and generally goofy) popularity devices: monkeys. However, aside from the monkey thing, it has a solid design, and it's OU for a reason.

    Lucario: Undoubtedly gonna get a lot of votes because it's so popular, mainly because of that movie. But that's not to say I don't like Lucario; it's actually my second favorite in this list. Good overall design, and great attacking stats (though it could have used more Speed).

    Toxicroak: At first, the designs of this and Croagunk made me feel uneasy, but I got used to them. Poison/Fighting is a creative type combo, and the ability Dry Skin is certainly a nice bonus, healing from incoming Water attacks.

    Gallade: This psychic gladiator has my vote here. I'm personally a sucker for close-combat weapons, and Gallade uses blades extending from its elbows. Certainly caught my attention. If only it has more Speed, it could put that awesome Attack to really good use. At least that great Sp. Defense makes it a powerful user of Bulk Up.

    My decision: Gallade > Lucario > Infernape > Toxicroak (It's not far behind Ape, and it's only because it's hard for me to use.)

    Gallade. I like his design more than the others, plus I like his use of blades, and cutting moves. Makes him seem like a very elegant and nimble warrior.


    Also, I am offering my services as an Original Pokemon Trainer designer. It's free, but I might need time depending on your requests. PM for details if you are interested.


    Offline possibly for the summer. Don't VM or PM me because I may not see it for a few months.

    I really don't like any of them.
    I hate Lucario the most, so definitely no vote for him. Toxicroak kind of freaks me out and I don't like the major psychic weakness.
    Infernape is cool, but I prefer Blaziken.

    By default I vote Gallade, but I still don't like him much.

    In that case , why didn't people hate on Gallade after he upsurped Medicham's typing ? To me , Gallade's blades are a rip-off of Sceptile .In my opinion , Gallade isn't worth to be called a "swordsman" , it's just a Sceptile/Medicham rip-off . It doesn't even use real swords like Samurott does.

    Meh , I don't think Gallade's design is that great , it's just a male Gardevoir that's trying to be Sceptile(Green blades , and the ability to use Leaf Blade)and stole Medicham's typing.

    Anyways , my vote goes to Lucario , he has the best-typing for me and was unique at the time(Unlike Infernape and Gallade's)

    Gallade because it can fence with it's elbows. Which is epic.

    Toxicroak looks very cool and has a unique type combo. They seem to be a bit overlooked compared to some of the others, but hey are still just as awesome and useful in my opinion.

    Lucario is the only one I've actually used,and it turned out to be pretty useful. So Lucario it is.
