Top Ten Coolest Looking Pokemon of the First Three Generations

darthvadern
Pokemon video games are usually released near the end of a year in the middle-late of November usually. This was the case with Pokemon Sun and Moon, Pokemon Gold and Silver and Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Especially the newer entries seem to be released at that time. Today, as I'm making this list, it's the 21st of March 2019, and the newest Pokemon games, Pokemon Sword and Shield, while do not have release dates yet, they are sheduled to be released in late 2019. My guess is that it's going to be November 21st of 2019. Since we're exactly eight months away from it, I'm going to look at the coolest looking pokemon of the first three generations. Why the first three? Simply, it's the only ones I know a lot about, as the later generations I don't know much about. With that being said, here's the list.

The Top Ten

1 Latios Latios Latios, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's my all-time favourite pokemon to be honest, and part of the reason, is because of how cool it looks. I love the blue colour and how majestic it looks. Those wings are certainly awesome and the feet are as well. It's better than Latias in my opinion, for a couple of reasons. It looks more serious than Latias which looks more like she thinks the world is a safe place. Latios is the coolest looking pokemon of the first three generations, and pokemon as whole as well - darthvadern

2 Kyogre Kyogre Kyogre, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I love how it kinda looks similar to Latios is a way, they're both blue and long. I just love the mix of blue and red on a pokemon because it looks fantastic. Those big white dots make it look like a killer whale as well and I like those. I love his primal version as well. Kyogre is one of the coolest looking pokemon as well - darthvadern

3 Scyther Scyther

Hands down the best looking non-legendary pokemon, in my opinion. His design is one of the best looking in the entire franchise and has some of the best looking colours on a pokemon in which the colours truly fits, and not only that but the pokemon itself looks badass as well. Scyther is basically an enormous bright-green insect with wings, but swords as arms. This makes it one of the most dangerous pokemon if it existed in real life and it's one of the best looking as well. Definitely the best looking non-legendary pokemon there is, and the fourth best looking of the first three generations - darthvadern

4 Lugia Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

To be honest my favourite Johto pokemon, AKA favourite pokemon from Gen II. The colours of blue and white go fantastic togheter and it's even better with those wings that look like hands, I mean just look at him. Having him not in the top three would be hard - darthvadern

5 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Rayquaza, one of the strongest pokemon of all time, is also one of the coolest looking, especially when it comes to colours and design. The green is awesome and the different patterns on the long body look super impressive. I prefer it over the mega version as well, simply because it's more colourful. I mean dude look at this guy, it looks badass - darthvadern

My favourite legendary Pokémon. - Userguy44

6 Weepinbell Weepinbell

Who voted this doofy looking thing? Lol! - RobertWisdom

Yeah, the Weepinbell surely is a cool looking pokemon. I choosed it over Victreebell simply because while it's not as badass looking, it's surely prettier to look at and looks more interesting. That mouth is huge and so are the eyes. They are creepy, but cool looking. Yellow and green go well togheter as well. Thus this is on my list - darthvadern

7 Metagross Metagross Metagross, known in Japan as Metagross, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Metagross is simply a wonder, both to design and stats. One of the strongest pokemon of Gen III to the point it's considered the Dragonite of Hoenn, or Tyranitar of Hoenn, Metagross is also the winner of the trio in terms of design. It doesn't look too ridicoulus like Dragonite or overly badass like Tyranitar, but simply awesome and badass in the right way. I love the colours and the legs, they look awesome. I really love that white X on his face as well. That makes him look even more fantastic. Overall one of the best - darthvadern

8 Zapdos Zapdos Zapdos, known in Japan as Thunder, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He also can approach thunderstorms and these wings look awesome. - Userguy44

Of the three legendary birds, Zapdos is in my opinion, the best one. No, it's not because I'm team instinct on Pokemon Go and that he is the mascot of that team, no it's not because of that, but because of his design. It's hands down the coolest looking and most original looking of them. Articone is majestic looking but is a bit basic. And Molthree is just a chicken on fire. Zaptwo on the other hand looks like paper and has tons of sharp edges and it looks quite good - darthvadern

9 Umbreon Umbreon Umbreon, known in Japan as Blacky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
10 Omastar Omastar

Omastar, another Gen I pokemon, despite Gen I being my least favourite of the first three generations. Anyways of the "extinct" pokemon: Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops and Aerodactyl, this is the best of them along with it's pre-evolved form Omanyte. They look the coolest, especially this one, Omastar. The tentacles look amazing and the blue colour truly make them so. The shell, makes it look even better so there's that as well - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Kingdra Kingdra

I really like the evolutions of the pokemon Horsea. Horsea itself is a decent pokemon but Seadra, the first evolution is one of the coolest looking pokemon of Gen I. As if it wasn't enough, another evolution was introduced in Gen II, Kingdra, and it broke the records of Seadra. It looks truly majestic and badass and the blue shade is awesome. Those long blue things that stick out helps it look cool as well. On top of that the yellow belly helps it look even better. It's simply one of my favourites - darthvadern

12 Lucario Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
