So I was delighted to learn over the holidays that my growing-up-far-too-fast-for-me daughters still want Santa to bring them the new Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. And really, how can you ever be too old for these classics? So we thought we’d have a little fun together and come up with a list of our six favorite and six least favorite Pokemon of all time.
I know you have yours as well, so please feel free to chime in!
Okay, this one is Mom’s favorite. Singing Team Rocket to sleep, double-slap attack, comes in my favorite color, and it’s just so much fun to say “Jigglypuff.”
Fat-ass, lazy-as-hell, you wish you were this Pokemon.
The kids were having an argument as to which one is cooler, but both are classic, badass, mow-down-anything-in-it’s-path additions to the party. These are the Al Capones of Pokemon.
Another fun name, and how ’bout that flail attack, huh? Bitchin’!
Cuz’ it’s just so fricking creepy!
6. The evolved forms of Eevee
Had a lot of fun putting together a party of these with my kids. And let me tell you, these cats knew how to mix it up. Anybody up for a battle?
Six Least Favorites:
Actually, Zubat/Golbat/Woobat/Swoobat, any of the bloody things in the caves!
Do I really need to say anything? I don’t think so.
Always daggum showing up and blowing up when you’re hurt. Always.
Only thing worse than showing up and blowing up is showing up and skipping out as soon as the combat scene loads. Wasting my time here, people!
Can’t leave me the hell alone while I’m trying to surf now, can you? Honestly…
Two words… arena trap. Utterly useless.
So we’d love to hear from you, what are your favs? And who chaps your ass the most? And don’t you want to veg out and play some Pokemon this holiday?
Gotta play them all!
