Which do you prefer: Anime!Gio, Game!Gio, or PokéSpeManga!Gio?
Anime!Gio for me, just because TR seems a lot more threatening than in the games and because I don't read PokéSpe.
He's cool and kind, but threatening and dangerous at the same time. He's also a good, loving parent to Silver.
I'm most familiar with Anime Giovanni, and I write in Anime canon. But I like Game Giovanni too.
Pokemon Special Giovanni is different in many ways so I tend to separate him from the other two when considering characterisation. I have only read Pokemon Special up to the League but I liked how his portrayal was not black and white in the moral sense.
Overall I don't have a favourite. He is an intelligent man with a strong will and a lot of drive. But he makes many mistakes too, and is very ruthless. Personally, I admire him, even though if I were to meet him I might end up dead because of the things I know about TR. Seems like an alright way to go, to me.
I think Anime Giovanni might have problems with his mortality, while Game Giovanni, and especially Special Giovanni might not.
Anime Giovanni. I also write mainly in the Anime canon.
Fan fic wise, there is so much you can do with this character, its great!

Can I pick all three? Okay, maybe just a combo of the anime and game versions, because those are my favorite. If I had to choose, I'd probably say the anime Gio, just slightly over the game one, if for no other reasons than his epic orange suit and his Persian.
