I'm a huge pokemon fan. I've played it since 2005 and competitively since 2010-ish
Gengar has always been my favorite
some of my other favorites besides gengar are:

umbreon
jigglypuff
decidueye

Yeah, Gengar is a pimp

Pokemon is a great game and really addicting
It's pretty amazing how simple the game is and how well it stands against today's games that are all about realistic graphics and shit. pokemon is really versatile and it seems like each generation, all they have to do is add one new element to the gameplay and it completely revolutionizes the franchise

>Scizor
>Bisharp
>Dialga
>Arceus(Dark, steel and ghost)
>Alolan-ratata

>Mareactus

My partner in the monnworld would be Lucario without a doubt since we are relatable

One of the many mon with great designs that unfortunately suffers from "middle evo syndrome". You use them for such a short time and there's hardly any motivation to not evolve them as there's no stat trade off for doing so.

Anyone want to vs me on showdown? I'll win for sure but it would be fun


match type: Unrated Random battles.
>>
>>37138556
I know right
It's my favorite game of all time by far (besides smash bros)
I tried to explain to some normalfags a while ago that I have probably around 9000-10,000 hours in pokemon alone and they literally couldn't wrap their heads around it and kept telling me I was lying so I had to actually calculate it
Its a fucking AMAZING game and franchise. It's so crazy how I can get so lost in a huge universe such as pokemon to escape my own.

its interested me how popular gengars are, considering they're not really a figurehead of the series like Pikachus or charizards. but I can totally see why people like them. their design is simple and cool, and the lore surrounding them in the pokedex entries are badass. theyre mischievous beings that fucking kill people at night for fun. that's why theyre my favorite.
>>
>>37138746
same here! I've always really liked his design. The wings (that's what I always assumed they were, they kinda look like p wings from Mario) I've always thought were cool looking, weird how blastoise loses them.

Tangrowth in general.
Tsareena for fugs.

>>37138886
It's called "group think" anon.People generally follow the most "attractive" popular opinion as they usually hold shallow or no strong convictions of their own. Gengar is generally parroted by weirdos trying to give off an impression of dark, enigmatic, and different because they use entertainment and the media they consume as a facet of the personality they like. How many virgin on /r9k/ also claim Pink Floyd's The Wall is their favorite album when in all actually they probably listen to exclusively Toho music on their phone? You people are hollow.

>>37139114
I agree. in some ways I even like him more than gengar, despite gengar being my favorite. I really like his design as it is more like an actual ghost, whereas gengar is... whatever the fuck he is. he also looks scarier (not that I'm scared of him, you know what I mean) than gengar, which I appreciate considering he's a ghost pokemon. his fan art tends to be better as well.

Fuck off.

I like Gengar because he's been a huge threat in the meta game for a while now. Two fantastic STABs and a sub/disable set absolute dismantles so many strategies. He also has tons of variety, too, though like hypnosis, thunderbolt, and will o wisp. It's a huge threat that is hard to predict. That and the design is dope as fuck.

Go on about how you're the only wolf among sheep though. I'm sure it'll help make a lot of friends.

Did I also mention it's a Poison type with levitate, thereby immunizing him to a typing that is otherwise a huge threat? Add to the ghost type, and he has three solid immunities to three types that are huge threats.

Blatantly wrong. Gens 1 and 2 still have some fun merit because of how dumb and balls to the wall it can get, but 3 was boring as fuck and 4 was a godsend for some pokemon.
>>
>>37141351
Gen 3 would have been ideal if it had the physical/special split. It's a real shame that it ended up on the cusp like that. Gen 2 was also awesome because of its spooky vibes but it wasn't as fresh and heart gold/soul silver didn't emulate those vibes well enough. A real shame.
>>
My Snorlax in pokemmo is fucking gangster.
He has really high hp and attack
He knows: Rest, Hyper Beam, Strength, and Belly-Drum

If I carry a ton of awakenings then i'm good, I just use Belly Drum at the beginning of the match and use Hyper Beam on every pokemon and it usually one-hit-kills everything

Colosseum was pretty good.

I was always a huge fan of all the Pokemon Stadium games when I was a kid. When they released Colosseum, I shit bricks
Colosseum had a really good atmosphere and it was a nice change of pace from the normally 'happy go-lucky' atmosphere of regular Pokemon games.

>>37141561
>dissing honchkrow
If you'd have posted rhyperior or magmortar, I'd agree with you.

>>37141605
They've actually been pandering more to people who don't, so they can at least feel like they're closing the gap. Doesn't help much though because help is a 2 way street.

>>37141585
Yeah, can't forget those. Some of my favorite battle music came from those games.
>>
>>37141605
Imo the only thing that got worse in the single player games was all the hand holding. You have to sit through 4 hours of getting told how shit works until you finally start playing.

Besides that and the stupid power creep, there has been a general improvement. Game mechanics make more sense, the quality of the graphics and the music improves and the plot has more depth as the generations go on. Pokemon designs are not as good as the first couple of gens but you can't blame them since it's a high standard and there's still always a bunch of worthwhile pokes each gen anyways. The post game gets steadily better as well.

Multiplayer wise, though, the first three gens were a complete fucking mess.
>>
>>37141667
honchkrow looks like they just rearranged a swellow. rhyperior and magmortar are pretty bad too

>They've actually been pandering more to people who don't

its too bad its way too late now, pokemon that dont have certain natures/abilities/whatever never get used and just get released. they tried way too hard to make everything as complicated as possible for what is essentially a game for children
