Select your Pokemon Team!

    Hello,

    This is just a funny idea to see how it goes. As you may/may not know, Twitch Presents are currently doing a Pokemon series stream marathon on their channel. This has lead to a whole bunch of people hanging out in chat and watching the episodes, talking about the pokemons. As we are currently watching the first season it made me think: what would peoples Gen 1 team look like? As we progress through the series we will shift focus to gen 2 and 3 and so on. At the end of the Marathon I will put peoples pick together and it will be interesting to see which pokemon is the most popular one, as well as if someone picked one-of-a-kind.

    I know this week will be a little short as its already Thursday, but next week you can do a gen 1 and a gen 2 list if you want to, but hold up with gen 2 until next week please.

    Also please limit it to max 1 legendary pokemon per team. (to keep it from just being legendary teams).

    If you dont want to make your list "public", feel free to PM it to me!

    L&R!



  • Gen 1: Raichu, Farfetch'd, Dewgong, Primeape, Ninetales, Dragonair



  • I never played the games, but I watched the series a lot as a kid. So it's six pokemon per team? Is there a list of the legendary ones, so I don't end up with more than one?



  • Hmmmm. Ok. For Gen 1: Gengar, Ninetales, Hypno, Chansey, Dragonair, Porygon, Ditto.

    @sentinel-beach Oh yeah, I should of listed them, sorry! Legendaries are in Gen 1: Mew, Mewtwo, Arcticuno, Zapdos, Moltres. Six are the max amount of pokemons you can have on you at one time in the games/series.



  • I'm gonna try to keep all starters and legendaries off my lists for the sake of variety.

    Haunter, Starmie, Jolteon, Arcanine, Pidgeot, Beedrill



  • Just the coolest looking guys for my team, I really don't care about abilities, balance or power at all, just the ones I like

    Raichu
    Sandslash
    Marowak
    Mew
    Dragoinar
    Ninetails



  • Blastoise
    Primeape
    Alakazam
    Victreebel
    Muk
    Snorlax



  • Cuties only!

    Squirtle
    Vulpix
    Oddish
    Diglett
    Ponyta
    Dratini



  • I flip flop on this a lot: Squirtle, Dragonite, Rhydon, Jolteon, Snorlax, Alakazam



  • As the marathon goes on I am replaying the games too. My Gen 1 team this time : Charizard, Nidoking, Gengar, Poliwrath, Jolteon, Snorlax



  • Let's see, I'll go with...

    Gengar, Snorlax, Golduck, Exeggutor, Muk, and Machamp.

    I actually prefer the Alolan version of Exeggutor and Muk but those bad boys don't qualify as gen 1 sadly.



  • Because I dropped off after Gen 3, I can't proceed further than that, but I'll do the first three

    For Gen 1:

    Charizard
    Dragonite
    Gengar
    Lapras
    Aerodactyl
    Nidoking



  • @brannox You could watch the Pokemon marathon when it gets to the Gen 4 and onward episodes to discover Pokemon from those you like.



  • @mbun Sure, but I could also just Google a Gen specific Pokedex and pull from that, but I just not that into it. I have my memories and knowledge from the first three gens, but I just don't want to randomly pick six that look cool.



  • @brannox I think there's a big difference between watching the anime to see what they're like and just staring at Pokedex pictures online.

    Thanks for the entires so far! People still have today and tomorrow to submit, before we switch over to gen 2! ...That said though, as I stated in the top post, I will actually allow for you to do gen 1 and 2 as this thread got up a little late. But preferably you will have the list handed in before Orange Islands starts.



  • @mbun I agree, but the point I was making is I don't have the same interest as I once did. And it would feel weird to do so much research into something I just can't get into.



  • I will go with a practical team
    Gen 1:
    Charizard
    Venusaur
    Blastoise
    Mewtwo
    Gangar
    Machamp (named :John Cena)

    Thank you for all the submissions! (Both here and on Twitch).

    We now begin Phase 2 with the start of Series 2 on Twitch Presents.
    This week we are looking for your favourite Gen 2 team. That said, we started gen 1 a bit late, so it will be OK to submit gen 1 and a gen 2 team.
