Simple question! Name off some of your favorite pokémon from your least favorite Generation(s).
The three most recent generations are probably my least favorite, but i cannot deny that there are some great Pokémon designs. Here are some that I like the most!
Flabebe might be the cutest Pokémon ever.
sorry @Dizzle but we both know Togedemaru is the cutest Pikachu clone
Flapple is a flying dragon type apple peel! love it!
This is a challenge for me because my least favorite generation, which is Gen 8/SWSH, actually has a lot of Pokémon I like. I hate Sword & Shield but actually think the Pokédex is one of the stronger ones so it’s not really difficult for me to pick Pokémon I like. I really like Wooloo, Corviknight, Snom + Frosmoth, and Dragapult.
But to answer the question from a different angle, my least favorite generational Pokédex is Generation 3/RSE. My favorites from that generation are probably Sableye and Nosepass. There are better Pokémon that are more fun to actually use but I love both of those designs a lot.
Haven’t played SM or XY, but there are some pretty cool designs from both gens.
least favorite gen in general or of their respective pokemon?
I have 3 miniature schnauzers and they look similar to each evolution:
It would have to be a toss-up between Turtonator & Vikavolt
Generation 7 is a struggle for me to enjoy at all, but Dhelmise is an all timer for me.
Thats a great question actually. Pokemonwise my least favourite gen is SM, and my favourite Pokemon from there is probably Mimikyu
I dont like SW & SH at all but i love dragapult and corviknight.
I’m ranking this from the games, and not the gameplay but the new Pokémon that you could build a team from. Gen 6 I don’t think I tried a single new Pokémon. Didn’t even get my starter to it’s final evolution form. Feels like a cheap answer because it’s the box cover legendary, but has to be Xerneas.
Sinnoh: Drapion, Munchlax, Mantyke
Unova: Volcarona, Landorus-T, Gigalith and pre-evolutions especially in shiny forms
Kalos: Goodra and pre-evolutions
For me Kalos/Gen 6 is easily my least favorite. Probably the only generation of games that I’d say I disliked.
The fossil Pokemon were peak though and Aurorus is my favorite fossil Pokemon behind Aerodactyl.
I chose this Pokémon on my first playthrough of Pokémon X, but then found out that it has 6 type weaknesses with 2 of them being quad weaknesses . I like the design though!
Corviknight. I just don’t know much about sword and shield mons but I think this is a cool one.
The question is mostly what my least favorite gen is in terms of Pokémon Probably gen 5 (BW era). (Using the search function that works a lot better on the new forum) I came across this older post of mine for my top 6 favorite Pokémon per gen (from Januari 2021 - some probably have changed slightly by now):
If I had to put the generations in order from favorite to least favorite, it’s probably: 3, 1, 2, 4, 7, 6, 8, 5.
So in conclusion: Joltik
Generation 5 has to be my least favourite Pokédex, mainly due to the glut of copy/paste additions like Woobat<Zubat, Timburr<Machop, Trubbish<Grimer etc.
Volcarona on the other hand… everything from its typing, to its design and quazi-legendary vibe in-game is just top tier.
