A tough catch.
If you live in the 90’s, you must’ve gone through “the golden age of Pokémon”. Then, every kid in school is playing – or so I heard. I, however, was not lucky enough to be born in that glorious years.
But, that still didn’t stop me from playing the first game, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. I was lent an old Game Boy of my cousin’s just to play it. And I immediately fell in love with it. Keep in mind, this was my first Pokémon game.
Since then, I’ve been a huge fan of everything related to Pokémon. I watched all the anime episode – except for X and Y, played (almost) every main game to the franchise, and get my hands on every merchandise (the cheap ones, of course).
One day in particular, I suddenly wonder : what would be my favorite Pokémon? Well, after some deep researching and a couple of heartbreaking choices, I can proudly present to you : My Top 10 Favorite Pokémon.
Although quite some time has passed since I last use this Pokémon, its greatness remains in my heart as on of the best starters there is. You might ask, “Why would it be? Isn’t it just another one of those fire-fighting starters?”
Yes, it is.
But, what’s wrong with that? It’s a solid Pokémon with average – above average stats. If so, why didn’t I put Blaziken or Emboar? Well, it’s because of this “crazy man vibe” Infernape is giving.
I actually started using this Pokémon recently on my second walkthrough of Pokémon Black 2. While searching for a good fire-type, I encountered a Litwick in Celestial Tower. While I had my doubts, I ultimately decided to make it a member of my team.
And I certainly didn’t regret it! I love the fact that it can learn an array of moves (by TM) to counter its weaknesses. Its special attack is high enough that it boosted a good Pokémon to a great one.
I’ll be honest here. If it weren’t for Ash’s Gliscor, I wouldn’t even consider this Pokémon on my team. However, the anime’s portrayal of Gliscor made me think otherwise.
Its design resembles those of a bat and a scorpion. Although I agree that it’s not the strongest Pokémon, its typing and pretty average stats has earned Gliscor a spot in my team.
Before Tyrantrum is announced, I actually pondered a long time why Nintendo hasn’t released a Pokémon based on a T-Rex. I mean, whenever you think of dinosaurs, a T-Rex is bound to be up there.
However, when I finally saw the design of it, my grudge for Nintendo’s latency completely melted. They somehow managed to turn an already cool creature to an absolute beast with high attack and defense.
A moving island. That’s the most accurate words to describe Torterra. This Pokémon started off as a cute Turtwig. 32 levels later it evolved into the all-powering Torterra.
While the design of it would make you think it’s a defensive , it actually has a very strong attack stat you can rely on in every situation.
