Favorite from each gen:
I - Mew / Meowth / MissingNo.
II - Jumpluff / Corsola
III - Skitty (obv)
IV - Probably Drifloon
V- Reuniclus / Chandelure
VI- Klefki / Flabebe line
VII - Eh, not sure.
I've played since RB came out. I remember being a little kid and my brother, who knew I loved cats, told me about this new cartoon with a bunch of monsters, called Pokemon. That there was even a talking cat! I was all over that shit.
Then he showed me Red version on the Super Gameboy we'd gotten, and I was super hyped. I don't even remember when, but I began playing on his file and catching MissingNo.
(The best pokemon, obviously)
The rest is history.
For the most part, I like every gen, I feel like they all have something I like. But my all time favorite is probably Gen II, but I also really liked Gen V.

I think I've already posted this on lc but
I’m pretty old so I got into the series when I was subscribed to Nintendo Power as a kid and got those little Pokémon Power mini-magazines they included when Pokémon Red and Blue were about to be released in the states.
My favorite generation is probably gen II probably because it’s the one I played the most and was just such a significant upgrade from the first one. My starter was Cyndaquil so Typholsion is probably the closest I have to a favorite Pokémon. I missed out on gens III and IV though and have been meaning to play those for a while.
I'm 19 and I started with Pokémon Pearl on the DS.
I also loved Pokémon Ranger and Explorers of Darkness / Time, also on the DS.
The gameplay is kind of too shallow and repetitive for me now but I still love the pokémon. Piplup best starter>>33737
Lol I love Pokémon memes

favourite pokemon is and always will be espeon. best pink cat
favourite generation is X and Y, i know a lot of people dislike that generation and even i dont really know why its my favourite, it just is lol. second fave is 3rd gen.
got into pokemon when the first games came out in europe, i was like 4. have liked it ever since although never been quite as obsessed as i was between ages 4-11. i watched all the episodes of the anime back then too.
File: 1538945741018.jpg (84.92 KB, 800x800, 5853865.jpg)
I was aware of what pokemon is when i grew up but i never played the games bc we were too poor and 3rd world to have gaming consoles and the anime seemed too childish for me. then i really got into pokemon go when it came out (i still play lmao) and played moon and ultra sun when they came out. moon was alright but ultra sun was very boring and i felt like an adult playing a game for 8 year olds. I'm considering getting alpha ruby/omega sapphire once uni goes on winter break because a friend who's really into pokemon said it's her favourite and i don't want to be a fake fan that only plays pokemon go lol
anyways, my fav is tangela and i was quite upset when the cut 1st gen pokemon concepts came out earlier this year bc tangela's evolution looked mega cute

i'm obsessed with pokemon. primarily the first two gens as they're the most nostalgic for me, but i still play almost all the games (at least the new gens if not the gen-specific sequels they always get). i'll admit i forget the names of most of them past gen 2, but i still love pokemon so much! it's a huge part of my life.
my fave pokemon is bulbasaur (the whole line really), and my fave gen is pretty evenly split between 1 and 2. r/b/y was a masterpiece, g/s/c was a masterpiece that expanded. it's too hard for me to choose.
i will always hold pokemon close to my heart. have some nostalgia from a simpler time.

I only ever played SoulSilver when I was stuck in a mental health hospital, but I like the designs of a lot of the pokemon and think they're very cute.
My favourite is Misdreavus and his evolutions because he's a gothy lil shit.

God,i missed pkm so much,eversince my brother sold the gameboy and most of the pokemon game that he had,i never got the chance to catch up with the pkm franchise in general.But,im getting my first console in years and a bunch of new games( including pkm sun and y) im so excited to play!!!!
What's weird is having a favorite Pokemon from when you started playing (I started w/Red) and, like, I feel guilty changing it lol. So I like to have a top 5 for each generation.
I: Charmander (my first fav. It was also my favorite number–4. And the mascot of my favorite color. It was destiny). Flareon, Magneton, Haunter, and Gloom round out the rest.
II- Cyndaquil, Politoed, Lanturn, Magcargo, Porygon2
III-Mudkip, Skitty, Shiftry, Metang, Camerupt
IV- Empoleon, Luxray, Dusknoir, Toxicroak, Roserade
V-Eelektross, Chandelure, Swoobat, Audino, Trubbish
VI-Chesnaught, Litleo, Pyroar (yes, I'm counting them separate because I love both of them), Espurr, Klefki
VII-Litten, Rockruff, Mimikyu, Tsareena, Salazzle
My favorite gen is 2, 3 or 6. I really did not like 5 or 7. 5 was better when they released the sequels so you weren't bound to just Unova Pokemon, but I think I will always have negative memories towards it because an incel-tier guy asked me out by saying 'hey, will you check out my team?' and he had named them "Anon/will you/go/out/with/me". And that was… not good. Don't do that. Unless you absolutely know someone will say yes, don't do it.
I just haven't gotten around to liking gen 7. I finished Sun, never finished the sequel. I'm salty they didn't do any sequels for XY. Z was there… calling their name. But they didn't answer. They had way better trainer customization options than SM/USUM. Like. I just don't understand. XY brought back my love for Pokemon that was lost with BW. I know people say the plot was weak for it/mega evolutions suck, but I really enjoy the game every time I play through it. It's one of the games I'll do type-restriction challenge because they make it fairly easy to at least get half a team going at the start for various ones.
Remake-wise, I loved HGSS. So. Much. I loved having your lead follow you around and I loved Lyra's character design. It's a feel-good game for me. I liked the mini-game things that were next to the National Park.

I fucking love this movie and probably will go see it again in a week or two! It's absolutely joyful and fun. I am looking forward to a sequel.
I really wanted to play the original game, but then I found out it's really simplistic and for kids only. Maybe that's for the better, since I am still paying for my Switch.
Really bummed about lack of merch where I live.
I really loved to see a more character focused Pokemon story. The Pokemon world is so interesting and yet Nintendo does NOTHING with it. You can tell so many interesting stories in it and yet all the Pokemon anime movies are a cliche fest centering on Ash (who's not a very interesting protagonist). I wish we could get more stories like Detective Pikachu. It's sad that I have to dig for the few good Pokemon fanfic and fancomics (like It's a Hard Life) to experience a good story involving Pokemon (other than the movie, of course).
Weird to hear that the movie was too kiddy for someone. To me it was clear that just like PoGo, it was targeting grownass millenials AND their kids. The plot was obviously easy to understand, but there were plenty of things for adult pokemon fan to enjoy.
Hope you don't mean Mr Mime, there is no way this fucker is not ugly.
I also found the ending the weakest part I am always bored when the time comes for the Final Boss battle
and all action Hollywood movies tend to do it recently.I liked Mewtwo not being evil. I wish it was explained why Tim understood Pikachu. I assume cause he was his father but yeah…
I fucking love Pikachu. He's the mascot and the first that I saw when the first season would play on TV. I felt like a basic bitch for loving Pikachu when a lot of my friends around me would pick other pokemon as their favorite, but now as an adult I don't give a fuck because Pikachu has the most merch anyway so I'm never short of finding cute Pikachu things (both a blessing and a curse).
My dad bought and let me play the first generation of games when I was like… 4 years old or some shit but I didn't get too far (up to where the Snorlax is blocking the path) because I could barely read and understand what I was reading lol. The first game that I finished from beginning to end was ruby/emerald, but I didn't play any of the games before or after that until Sun/Moon came out. Sun/Moon was the first pokemon game I actually bought for myself with my own earned money lol. I really want to get alpha sapphire/omega ruby to play some day!
TV show wise, I fucking love the Sun and Moon series. Absolutely love it. All the seasons are really fun to watch and I'll watch them whenever I happen to catch them on TV, but Sun and Moon was the first one where I really watched all the episodes in order (I'm very much behind now, but I would watch it weekly when it first started airing for the first few weeks). I loved how much more slice of life-y it is, and even if people shit on the art style, I think it's fucking cute as shit and I love those moments where they switch from really simply and cutesy, to more detailed and ugly faces lol. At some point I was watching it subbed because the dub was taking too long to come out, and even though Netflix has it now, I'm too used to the subbed to want to switch back to the dub (which is only what they have). The OP/ED are cute as fucking shit and I downloaded the songs and sing along to them too. I haven't watched Detective Pikachu yet but I want to so bad.

My favorite Pokemon is no one else's. That sounds snowflake-y, but it's true. When I test people they never guess. Coincidentally, it came from the Generation I played the least.
File: 1559150281137.gif (729.46 KB, 320x238, tumblr_otlx8aSqx71uh3x51o1_400…)
I was into pokemon from 5 up until a few years ago (grew out of it? idk). At that age I just watched the show and had toys. I was only allowed to start playing at 10 when my mom bought me a gameboy advance and leafgreen for me for my birthday. It was a really fond memory.
Growing up my favourite games were by far the Mystery Dungeon ones, the humour appealed to my young self and I preferred interacting with pokemon as characters rather than owning/training them. I bought the newer PMD game a couple years back and I still haven't finished it since I'm just not into vidya much anymore.
Anyway Mime Jr. is cutest pokemon and you can't change my mind. Sinnoh/gen 4 will always be close to my heart since I played Pearl and PMD:EoT to death when they came out. Most of my other favourites (Darkrai, Gallade, Vespiquen) are also from that gen. Popplio is fave starter though.
Thinking about it makes me want to play again, but I know I don't have the energy anymore. Sad!
Is Sun and Moon worth watching for someone who loves Pokemon world and slice of life, but isn't keen on typical Ash and Team R antics?>>33759
Your fave one is Baltoy? Why? That is an interesting choice, I must say.
Hm, that's tough to say. I only got about 15 episodes in before outside factors stopped me from watching/keeping up, so take my words with a grain of salt I guess lol.
As for Ash, at least the episodes I've watched, there's a good dose of focus on the other characters. The very first few in the series are centered around Ash and one of the companions in the group so you get to know them a bit more. I personally don't find that Ash overtakes the show that much this season because they have to balance out such a big main cast (5 companions instead of just 2 or 3). Also, I know pokemon is all about battling, but I loved that so far I've seen minimal pokemon battles lol. There's a big one in the beginning and I've seen the Brock/Misty scenes that come up later on, but I don't think there's a whole lot of it, mostly just school and life antics.
For team rocket, they didn't really seem to cause all that much trouble. There's like one episode I watched where they fucked shit up, but the majority of it is them dealing with the Bewear who's basically captured them, and I think the scenes with them dealing with Bewear are really funny and entertaining to watch. Most of the shots I was thinking about when I mentioned the "changing from a cutesy, simple style to a more detailed ugly face" were of Team R.
That said, I hope you decide to pick it up and watch it anon! I love it so much.
I dunno. It's cute and I like the Jomon doll look.
What about you?
File: 1559158852432.gif (83.92 KB, 564x546, d7q71lh-0b9c7ec5-6f28-4aae-a98…)
This thing has my heart. I've played every gen since I was little and to me, the games just keep getting better. X&Y is my favorite tho. For now.
File: 1559158930017.jpg (44.73 KB, 421x810, tumblr_pnhejuCrED1rytk0m_540.j…)
Same. And it wasn't even the story, just seeing
the bulbasaurs got me so emotional… That scene looked so incredible, hopefully there's gonna be more scenes set in nature in the sequel(s)>>33760
Gen 4 is definitely the one I've played the most, it was the first one that multiple of my friends had too, so finally getting to play with others (which other people obviously got to in earlier generations) elevated it sooo much in my eyes.
My favorite is Totodile, probably because he was the one I got in the Mystery Dungeon quiz.
I got into the games because of my older brother, who had grown out of it by then so I got to play all his vidya.
Anyone here played Stadium?

There is a Pokemon Direct today. Livestreams on the Nintendo website: https://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/06-05-2019/
I hope they announce a new Eeveelution at least.

i dont know how to feel about the giant pokemon thing, it looks like another gimmick to replace mega evolutions. I will say the raid idea looks fun. I just hope they don't let this stuff fuck the framerate like it has for the 3DS games
sidenote, wooloo is so cute
File: 1559815163303.jpg (82.69 KB, 1136x640, D8TNEGZXYAAq8Vr.jpg)
I don't think the dynamax thing even works really. If someone dynamaxes their Pokemon then you'll just dynamax yours and it will be even again.
Wooloo is the best thing to come out of the direct, I do like the knight bird tho. I'm not sure how I feel about the legendaries.
Pretty sure they are late stage encounters, the dex entry says:
It is said that Corviknight is the strongest Pokémon living in the skies of the Galar region. It can often be seen fearlessly soaring through the air. Many say that any Pokémon foolish enough to challenge Corviknight are sent running with just a sharp glare and cry from this fearsome Pokémon. Corviknight possess superb flying skills and high intelligence. Because of this, many of them work for the company called Galar Taxi, helping transport people from town to town.

What do you guys think of the recent outrage over no National Dex sparking the hate against Game Freak? To be honest this post ( https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/bzyzfo/game_freak_pok%C3%A9mon_and_lack_of_ambition_this_is_a/
) in particular triggered
me because of the complete disregard of Mega Evolutions being all "just a little stat boost nbd".
>809 pokemon and Mega Rayquaza still banned. Sorry for ruining this thread with sperging, I know everyone here wants to talk about cute pokemon…>>34561
Dynamaxing raises the stats of a Pokemon as well as lets them use 'Max Moves' that they learn depending on what moves the Pokemon already knows. It only lasts 3 turns, but how I would see it as if a set-up Pokemon (like Ferrothorn) was Dynamaxed, it would give it an even larger
health stat and if moves like say (Toxic
) Spikes/Stealth Rock has a max version, your non dynamaxed Pokemon are already more than halfway to dead once they come in.

I dont give a shit about it, fuck the national dex. As long as they keep the super classic pokes in the new games, I'm absolutely fine with never having to see literally who shitpokes like cryoganal and basculin ever again. Some pokemon deserve to get thanos'd. Oldfags can stay mad.
File: 1560477983471.png (103.82 KB, 320x287, iElUm.png)
I'm pretty sure we'll get the National Dex patched into or something. But right now the national dex whining is a big irrational circlejerk. Game Freak really doesn't deserve this.
XY was great when the meta was locked to give or take 200 pokemon (until everyone went back to using Blissey and Heatran). I'm excited to see what the Galar region pokemon can do.

File: 1561831401526.png (50.26 KB, 613x424, masuda.png)
People were harassing GF so much over National Dex that they had to make a statement telling them to stop whining. Pretty sure this has only being posted through the American Twitter account too, proves what audience are being brats over it all.
The /r/Pokemon Reddit has gone into meltdown and there's multiple threads saying that everyone should cancel their preorders and boycott the games and if you do buy the games you are contributing to the downfall of Pokemon LMAOOOOOOOOO. Any one who says they are still buying it is getting downvoted to obvlion. They are only mad they can't bring their ~perfectly IV/EV/whatever bred level 100~ shitlords through to yet another game and might have to use another fucking Pokemon for once.
I'm happy that the new title (and to an extent Let's Go) both went against what the retarded hardcore fans want. Each iteration is an identical grindfest with no substance, people are using the same tactics over and over and are throwing shitfits about their particular fav pokemon.
These aren't the kinds of fans you wanna continue to please. I'm happy that GF is looking to change the formula, first with the pokemon go style catching mechanics and now with getting rid of the pokemon bloat over the gens.
I agree. Like, if it was the same thing over and over, it would be so boring. I liked the trials of Moon/Sun, I liked Go, this new Masters thing looks cool.
But no, everyone is throwing shitfit cos they can't use the exact same Pokemon team from a previous game. Everyone was praising how cool it looks but as soon as the dex was getting cut all of a sudden its "the game is lazy, the graphics are shit, it is underwhelming, Pokemon is dying off, etc." Pandering to the tard fans only care about being overpowered fucks and not the actual storyline of gameplay is idiotic and I'm glad they are taking a stance on it. And if you dare say you are still looking forward to it, you are a "bootlicking corporate shill" (actual insult I've seen used today).
Also my fav Pokemon hasn't had official merch since like 2003 other than a card here or there, so these people can handle their fav not being in ONE game.
Really loved when each new generations gimmick was something really small like "we've added berries!!!", insignificant but something cute to remember the region by. Now there has to be a big new gimmick every single time to base all their advertisement on.
Probably the worse thing is seeing all the other nintendo games getting better while pokemon is left in the dust, would be the end if autistic kids didn't love it so much. Spinoff games still best bois.
Why does Pokemon Sword/Shield look so boring? I don't get why Game Freak is trying so hard to add useless and uninteresting features for battles when they would add or change the entire formula like they tried for Sun/Moon and spice things up. And the new pokemon don't look good either. I don't think I want to play this one when all the other games on the Switch look way more interesting.>>39568
I agree, the changes in previous generations were small and yet they really added something worthwhile to the whole series, like the berries and holding items in general, contests, battle frontiers, the weather. This one is going to be like Mega Evolutions, it'll be fun for the first 5 minutes then everyone will forget or complain about it.
Almost all of the ones Pokemon fans regularly talk about. Any of the Ranger games, the older Mystery dungeon games, like Red, or Explorers of Sky. Rumble can be an acquired taste but I enjoyed it.
Serebii net has a lot of info if you don't want to risk the terrible nintendo prices.

Minor sperg, but I am so fucking torn that my favourite pokemon is a piece of useless trash in game.
I love that funky little freak so much, but even his megaevolution while incredibly cute is basically worthless in battle.
Do you care about stats/moves when you pick your faves or do you go entirely by looks/pokedex entries like me?

Idrc about stats or battling as much as much as the pokemon iteself. I much rather like the designs and lore behind the pokemon. One of my favorites Phanthump is absolute trash at battling but I still used it through my X playthrough. I feel like if you use your favorites and build a good team with a variety of move coverage is more unique than having the same pool of 10-15 mons competative battling uses.

Is there a way to play online battles and trade on Pokemon DS games on a DS emulator with people who have the original copy?
The champion is arse, everyone wanted some queen type character, his main pokemon is Charizard, not even a Galar region pokemon.
But I am hoping he's a red herring and is actually the bad guy, that'd be something interesting for once.
