Top 10 Most Nostalgic Pokemon

Completely based on good memories and old time favorites from childhood.

The Top Ten

1 Meowth

Oh god, if any of you watched the anime, you'd agree with me. He was the funniest, best character on the show because of his little fantasies of pleasing Giovanni and his dumb disguises. He can also talk, which was so cool to me as a kid.

2 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Water–type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This was my first Pokemon ever. For my fourth birthday, I got Pokemon Blue, which had this badass blue turtle with cannons on it's back so naturally, I chose this BAMF and I was treated with insane defense and decent Special and Attack stat as well as sparking a love for a whole new series of games.

3 Crobat Crobat

The first Pokemon to get an evolution one generation later was the one and only, Crobat. It is so amazing because, not only is it insanely fast and has great attack, but it took a once useless and quite annoying Pokemon and turned it into an absolute beast. He was originally just a temporary flyer for me in Crystal, but then I got my hands onto the Johto Pokemon guide book which had all of the new Pokemon, which introduced me to Crobat, so I evolved him and loved the winged beast ever since.

4 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

5 Snorlax

I'm sure all RBY or anime fans remember the notorious Snorlax. Blocking your path from getting to Fuchsia City. Once you got your hands on the pokeflute (or Pokegear app, depending on the game), you could wake up the beast in all of it's glory and battle it at a whopping level 30! Most of my Pokemon were in high 20's, but none at 30 yet, so I had to catch it! Once I did, I used it and got rid of Raticate, and learned of it's insane power. It had amazing HP and Atk. , which made it one of the most useful on my team, and is still amazing to date. And it was also fun seeing it eat literally everything in the anime.

6 Kingdra

Another evolution added the next generation later, Kingdra took an already pretty decent and one of my favorite gen 1 Pokemon, Seadra, and made it into an absolute badass. It improved all stats to be a mixed attacker and pretty decent wall, and also gave it the dragon sub-type, which made it only weak to dragon, and because they were so scarce, aside from Lance and Clair, made the seahorse an amazing addition to my team.

7 Ninetales Ninetales

I know what many of you are thinking. What? Ninetales... above Arcanine? Yes, Nintales is my favorite of the 2 because I had Blue and could only get Ninetales and it, in my opinion, was better than Arcanine in gen 1 because the Special stat was not split yet, and it had a whopping 100 Sp and Speed, while Arcanine had 110 Atk and 95 Speed. Sp Atk was much better for fire Pokemon with Flamethrower as a Special move. I also loved the overall design and beauty of it. Also I eventually got into Naruto in my tween years and it had Nintales in it, which I thought was pretty cool.

8 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Pikachu is awesome because it's the first Pokemon Ash gets in the anime, and the anime was my favorite show as a kid, as well as Yellow being my favorite game as a kid, being able to walk, talk, and bond with Pikachu. No more explanation needed.

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

I absolutely loved this Pokemon because it helped me find my best friend to this date. I was playing Pokemon at recess under the slide because it was banned, and a boy came under it with me and asked me for a Kadabra which I had sitting in my PC, so we hooked up games and he sent over a Haunter, which evolved into Gengar as my Kadabra evolved into Alakazam. We eventually started having playdates and Pokemon battles, and became inseparable. I still have the Gengar to this date, transferred from game to game, Blue to Yellow to Crystal to Sapphire to Emerald to Diamond to HG to White to White 2, and I await the day the Pokemon Bank is released so I can transfer it to X.

I love Gengar, but his poison type makes him a lot weaker (PSYCHIC IS GOOD AGAINST THE POISON TYPE) which makes his usefulness scale (yes I just made that up) deplete.

10 Grovyle

From Pokemon Mystery Dungeon-Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky?
That made me cry...
We miss you Grovyle!

The Contenders

11 Empoleon Empoleon

My first Pokemon, and my only overleveled starter I have ever used

12 Latios Latios

The movie with latios was probobly the first Pokemon movie I've ever seen and it was so mystifying to me and had a sad ending which left me with a since of respect for latios plus heartgold and soulsilver were my faviorite ds games because of the night and I got a latios that I took every where

13 Torterra Torterra

My first Pokemon. The first to reach level 100. He's so awesome and cool.

14 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

It was hard to decide between Mew and Mewtwo, but I chose Mew because of the great memories of trying to find ways to get this elusive Pokemon on RBY. Rumors spread and spread around the playground, and that feeling of mystery intrigued me and made a great childhood memory I would not forget. Also Mew was very cute in the first movie, so it gets points for that as well.

I love Mew! Pokemon is so nostalgic to me!

16 Pidgey Pidgey

Pidgey is like the fist pokemon anyone ever finds in the wild

17 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.
18 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

This Pokemon makes me fell nostalgic. I used to play Pokepark Wii that reminds me of Dragonite. Dragonite is cute and harmonious.
