I used to believe Lycanroc was the best dog.A friend of mine recently converted me, I now truly recognize the greatness of Houndoom./vp/, tell us about times you have gained a great appreciation for Pokémon you once overlooked.
>>34395763I used to like Audino in Gen 5 but it never really did nothing special. When gen 6 gave it one of the only mega evolutions game freak will ever produce it gave me hope for the little pink bundle of joy.
>>34395763some of the most recent: probopass (generation anime)banette (mega)carnivine (conquest)claydol (tcg)druddigon/basculin (/vp/)sigilyph (fanarts)raticate (alola form)dedenne/unfezant/popplio (anime)
>>34395907oh yeah, and i forgot seaking (/vp/)
i always like all dogmons, but hadn't ever given any serious thought to using furfrou competitively (i just assumed it was shitty because of how early you could catch one in XY)with cotton guard, this thing is a surprisingly viable physical wall. it used to shrug off bullet punches like they were nothing back when mega scizor was a thing
>>34395763I loved Houndoom until I decided to use one in Ultra Sun. It was a complete shitmon, had to carry it through the whole game. Cute in Refresh though
>>34395763But anon, Arcanine is the best dog.
>>34395763>NatuI hated this fucker since it was introduced. Made me hate it even more when Gen 6 rolled around with its lazy fucking model. I only gave it a shot when I was playing Pokemon Gaia because I needed a Flying and Psychic type and have since grown a new found appreciation for it. Its stats are honestly quite good for in game.
>>34396199>tfw no flashfire
>>34395907If you love how Probopass attack (Me too btw), you should look a the Ash Vs Olivia fight in the Sun and Moon anime!
>>34395763I used an Octillery in a wonderlocke i did and this thing is surprisingly cool to use in game. Its movepool is crazy as well. Until then I always never saw octillery as much of anything
>>34395810> Believing that M Audino was a good ideakys
>>34396314>Not liking mega audinosnap your own neck
Used an Armaldo in ultra sun, surprisingly a total bro.
>>34395763>no fucking ears>best dog
>>34396202Honestly, your taste is just shit.
>>34395763Dunsparce thanks to Mystery Dungeon.
>>34396162Arcanine is a cat, though.
I think the most apparent example in my case was Raticate. The alolan form is just too silly.I just love this big lardass rat, it's great.
>>34396460>Arcanine>canine>catIt's a fucking fish you retard
Banette thanks to the anime. Its unaccurate RSE sprite made it look like a girly doll. I didn't like it for real until I used one with its mega in OR though.
I'm always growing on Pokemon so just going with the one that's currently undergoing. Replaying Colosseum and decided to do a mono-Normal run since Normal types are my jam and I'm noticing a lot of things about Stantler that tickle me. It's also a great glue-mon for the team with that Intimidate and Hypnosis support so it doesn't feel like a shitmon, the thing really benefits from the Doubles format.
The ninja frog I guess. Don't get me wrong I was and still am team chespin but I can honestly admit the frog is my favorite Kalos starter now(final form). Chespin is still the cutest of the bunch though.
>>34396476yeahi was surprised how much i wound up loving this fat rat
>>34395763Lack of ears
>>34396476>Wanted to do an Alola Form only run in Sun>Obviously get to start with rat, cat, and splatI love everything about these three.I'd say the biggest shift in my own opinion was on Swinub. I hated it's design from release all the way up until last year. I can't say what changed my mind.
