The Contenders: Page 4

61 Vulpix Vulpix

Vulpix is a cute smart Pokemon but its not a starter

Let's say Alolan Vulpix is Lillie's starter from anime. - Brachiozaur

62 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Darn I really should have chosen giratina as a starter instead of catching him later and beating the elite four over and over to farm him up to level 100

Giratina is not a starter Pokemon it's a legendary Pokemon

Giratina origin is the rarest Pokemon

Love him - Pokemonsonicmaster

64 Frogadier Frogadier

I really like frogadier but I chose froakie because froakie is #14 on this list and I want him to win

He can probably get a mega evolution if the game allows it like in the show

I could just kiss Greninja

Not a etarter - Banette-marionette

65 Servine Servine

PLUS it has all sorts of absorbing moves! It's also effective against the first two types: Earth and Water, and by then, it's already a beast!

Favourite Pokemon

Not a starter - Banette-marionette

This guy is just way too strong.I think it is awesome because its evolution,Serperior is very strong and flexible.

66 Maractus Maractus

Do you all forget about your good pal Maractus? I sure hope you didn't! Maractus can learn all sorts of powerful moves! I remember the first time I chose it as my starter, and boy I did NOT regret it! It's got enough firepower to stop every Pokemon right in their tracks! I defeated every single gym with my Maractus pal. Who needs any one else when you have someone as powerful as Maractus? Heck, I'd go as far as saying Maractus is the best Pokemon ever!

Ever since I chose Maractus in Pokemon Holly Blue Agate, it has been my best friend. My life has been an emotional roller coaster, full of betrayal, hatred and violence. However, Maractus has always been there for me. I'd bury my sorrows into my Nintendo Genesis, and find Maractus there, by my side, aiding me in my battles. Without Maractus, my life would be a living hell. Thank you Maractus. Thank you greatly.

Maractus sure is good. I remember when I chose it as my starter all the way back in Fire Red. We got through that first gym like it was nothing! Maractus surely is under rated, and is probably the underdog of all starters! It certainly needs more love!

I would say I want him to be my starter but I already have him :D (sorry for assuming gender)
