My Favorite Pokémon of All TimeAweso Apparently I'm deciding to torture myself by going through every single Pokémon and ranking them based on how much I love, like, don't care for, dislike, or hate them. My opinions on each Pokémon are based on physical appearance and personal connections from playing the games, not based on how they fare in the competitive battling scene. Also I'm not including any alternate forms of Pokémon except Alolan forms because they actually rank differently than the regular forms.
The Top Ten
Been my favorite Pokémon since I saw its 3D model in OR/AS and the fact that it can Mega Evolve into a cooler looking DRAGON TYPE! So awesome! Sorry if I sound like a super nerd of a twelve year old, but thinking about Pokémon brings me back to when I got into the games when third gen was introduced.
Used to be my YouTube and Twitter profile picture because I just love it so much. It's as cute as Sceptile is cool.
Just look at it… Ampharos is a sheep that conducts and controls electricity! And it has like... gems of power and stuff on its head and tail. I don't know, I just love Ampharos and its design. The colors work so well and it just looks like a fighter... or as much as a sheep can look like a fighter. Plus, its Mega Evolution gets points for getting that sick mane.
If this isn't in everyone's top 5, I don't know what would be. Smooth design, cool and unique typing (Psychic/Fighting, which only Gallade, Medicham, and Mega Mewtwo X have), and maybe the best and flashiest Mega Evolution of them all. But mainly, when a Pokémon has blades for arms, you can't get any cooler.
Just one thing here: ' cute.
Actually, a second thing: Time traveler.
Is another cute one, what else do I need?
Something about Shinx's eyes is calming. It's also a cute Pokémon, so that helps. The colors on here work so well together; a soft blue complemented by a warm yellow all in contrast with the black parts of it. Just nice to look at. And it evolves into the second coolest Pokémon of gen four (Luxray).
It's a Pokémon... based on music. This HAD to be in my top ten. Its hair is sheet music, it's got the physical form of a dancer, and it resolves everything through singing! What a great concept. Love it!
Yeah, two Pokémon from the same evolutionary line in the top ten! I really like the Shinx line. This one's lower than Shinx because it's cool but not as nice to look at.
The coolest of the cool. One of the best gen one Pokémon. I always have one on my team in Pokémon Yellow since it's my favorite Pokémon in that game.
Awesome. Classic beast of a Pokémon that drew people into the game and TV show. I may not love it as much as everyone else, but I do still love it!
Cutest of the Kanto starters in my opinion and I do like it more than Charmander. But I'm more of a "Water Type" personality than Fire.
As majestic *(◕ᗜ◕)* as regular Ninetales is, this is at least ten times better. Absolute beauty of a Pokémon. It's as beautiful as Alolan Vulpix is cute. But beauty doesn't win as many points with me as cuteness.
Overrated? Sure. But cute and cool? Definitely.
Just... majestic *(◕ᗜ◕)*
When you have cannons coming out of your back, you know you're awesome. Blastoise just knows it's awesome... err, it would had it been a real creature rather than just a piece of coding in a video game...
Just... majestic *(◕ᗜ◕)*
HOW DOES SANDSLASH GET COOLER?! Haha, get it, because he's made of... ice? (Yeah, that wasn't even intentional, I just noticed after typing it)
This is probably the most interesting non starter so far (I'm adding these by order of National Dex number) and its design is so cool with the patterns on its neck like a Cobra- err, kobrA.
Awesome! Such a powerful sounding and looking Pokémon, as something with "queen" in the name should be.
Issa birb wit hair. But the anime made me really love Pidgeotto.
"We can decipher the meaning by breaking it down into its two root words: Beed and Rill. Now we're all stumped and will never understand the deeper meaning of how this Pokémon came to be named."
The best combination of cute and cool. A baby dragon that actually looks like a toddler just learning to walk and breathe fire and the like. You know... normal life experiences.
So cool! What are those, porcupine quills on its back? And claws?! Yeah. Awesome.
This man... This POKEMAN... You don't get much more classic than the mascot of the entire franchise since 1996.
A cute little dino-plant that actually deserves to be more well loved. Grass is my favorite type of Pokémon (and no, I don't smoke or do drugs or whatever, I just love Grass types) so I have a soft spot for the little guy... girl... Pokémon.
Best of the Kanto starters' middle stages. Love the ears, tail, and shell as well as the visible blush on the cheeks.
Cooler than Nidoran Male. One of the better middle stages of Pokémon. The horn on its head is more noticeable than on Nidoran
Cute, but not nearly as cute as its Alolan counterpart or as majestic as its evolution. Definitely a classic, though.
Just... awesome. Almost as cool as Charizard but not as classic.
I like its sassy stance in battle in Fire Red and Leaf Green. I find it amusing.
Now some hipsters would say that Raichu is better than Pikachu simply to be original. Now me... I don't say that at all. Raichu clearly isn't better than Pikachu.
Great! I like it a lot more than Jigglypuff because of how it looks like a giant marshmallow!
Beautiful. Makes the 3 levels of having a Metapod worth it. Plus the spore effects it has are cool (Stun Spore, Poison Powder, Sleep Powder).
I actually really like her even if she is just kind of a mouse Pokémon. Plus, it's the first gendered Pokémon ever because in gen one, no Pokémon aside from Nidoran had a gender. Or at least the games didn't specify until gen two. And the soft blue color of it looks pretty on it.
Much better than Gloom. The petals on its head are a cool camouflage even if it can't use it in game.
Cute Pokémon. Also it's association with the moon is cool and really makes use of all the spacey gimmicks in Pokémon (Mt. Moon, Moon Stone, Cosmic Power, etc.)
Cooler than Metapod. Nicer color, poison stingers on it so at least the DESIGN can defend itself, and it's just... not Metapod.
Meh. Kind of an ugly design, even for a middle stage. Maybe a little better than Charmeleon.
Nidoran was the first Pokémon to have a gender so of course it's important. I just prefer the female version because of the color. The Deep Purple (get the reference?) doesn't look as nice as the soft blue.
Basic design, centipede with horn on head and clown nose...……. LOVE IT!
Snake backwards. Simple name, but genius. It's cool enough.
Sucks. Sucks. Sucks. Sucks. Sucks. Design is gross, anime portrayal is annoying, and in game I never had a great experience with one until it evolved.
Classic? Yeah. But too annoying in the anime for me to really love Jigglypuff. Also, the anime played up Jigglypuff as some great singing Pokémon when its real defining characteristic is being a balloon; something Smash Bros. got right.
Is jussa birb… Not bad tho (Am I good at memes yet?).
Like Sandshrew, just not as boring. The igloo look suits it.
Well it's basic, but not a bad design (looking at YOU, Charmeleon). I like it.
It's nice. I mean for a shrew made of sand and that's the name of it.
Cute little odd radish- Wait. Odd... radish... Oddish.
Cooler looking bird than Pidgey, but Pidgey's a classic. Spearow not so much.
