A number will be randomly generated each day, and the Pokemon with that number in the national dex will be the one you give your opinion on that day! The averages will be later stored for all to see! I hope you enjoy rating/reading other people's ratings about your favorite (or least favorite) Pokemon.

 

Spoiler

in previous versions of this thread, I'd had trouble keeping up every day due to life and also my typing addiction, resulting in updating it taking longer than it should. I'll try to avoid that as best I can, but should I be unable to properly update this, hereby nominating the ever reliable @Big the Cat @Taiiyo and @Kilgrave to take up my torch


Simply rate the Pokemon on a scale of 1-10 and give us the reason for your rating!

 

And today's Pokemon is-

 

#257 Blaziken!

My rating: 8.5

 

Blaziken's one of those Pokemon I just immediately register as awesome. Blazing kicking chicken man. I've never managed to use it on an in-game run (only ever used a Torchic on a nuzlocke and it died as a Combusken) but it's still a Pokemon I love using in battle. Speed Boost does make it a bit crazy for 6v6 formats (though tbh I think it'd be fine in OU now with the baton pass ban) but even without that it can be a potent sweeper thanks to its high physical and special attack combined with a great movepool. Also been helpful with Speed Boost for the Battle Spot and Battle maison/tree. And it's also a blazing kicking chicken man and I've had a cool action figure of it since I was 7. Stellar.

 

#257 Mega Blaziken!

 

blaziken-mega.gif

 

My rating: 8.5

 

The design is above average as far as megas go, but not a massive improvement. The way it works in battle is also literally the same as regular Blaziken but with better stats, so although it's useful and possesses a different role than the base simply by nature of taking up a mega slot, it's not too interesting in terms of battling. All in all basically doesn't improve the way I feel about Blaziken, but doesn't make it worse either.

Tbh, never really cared for the little fellow. I love his design, it's cute and all (especially the little peggy legs <3), but that is all I can really say. I barely encountered it in XY so I can't really tell you about the animation and gameplay of it. I like how it is based off an iceberg (although the bottom of an actual iceberg is longer but whatever). Not really anything can bring my rating up for it. I don't just solely base my opinion off design, so that is why my rating is as it is.

Oh I thought this was just for you haha

 

Well, I give it a 7. It's a cute pre-evo to one of the 'forgotten' pokes, and I just like it.

Bergmite is one of my favourite pre evolutions  ever since I saw it in pokemon X. Surprisingly I have a shiny version of it. The evolution is quite good. But I'm not too impressed.

10/10. A good boy. Look at those lovely eyes, the crystalline shine of his back. Reminds me of the little dudes in twilight princess up in snowpack ruins. Loves his family. Pays his taxes. 10/10.

Oh my god, you are right! I am just realizing that now and TP was like my fav Zelda game

I'd say 6/10. He's cute and has cool animations, and his evolution is awesome, and e couldn't be better design wise. I just feel like he isn't all that memorable so he gets a 6/10.

#255 Torchic!

My Rating: 8

 

I've used Torchic for a couple playthroughs, but due to all those being nuzlockes, I never actually got it fully evolved and to the end of the game seeing as I either got bored (or it just happened to die.) So, not a lot of sentimental feeling for Torchic. But, there's other things I like about it- I love using it in Little Cup, it's a member of what I think is the best batch of unevolved starters, and of course it's an adorable fire chick. Considering all that and that it's unevolved, I'd say it earns the 8 from me.

*Puts hands up* I plead guilty, I used the Speed Boost Torchic in my X playthrough. Yes I know, but it was so tempting to add. It's a fluffy little guy indeed. I mostly like it because he just played a vital role in my X team (although I think once he was able to mega evolve, the game got a little too easy). It is one of my favorite bird pokemon by design (So glad it didn't get a flying typing like Doduo and others). But the guy basically starts off as a little, fluffy chick, then becomes this complete monster when it mega evolves. Enough said.

10/10 

This is one of my personal favorite Pokémon. It has an awesome, cute design and cool animation, is actually pretty good in game playthroughs, and evolved into some cool fighters. But Torchic is the supreme example of a great combination of cute and powerful, and had a big bar to reach being a starter - Although I think Torchic set that bar. 10/10 amazing

7/10

 

This is my least favourite of the Hoenn starters, which honestly isn't saying much given that I love all of Hoenn's starters. However, Torchic just never struck the same chord with me that Treecko or Mudkip did. Torchic is a perfect case of a pokemon that I will use because I like its evolutions, not because I particularly like it. To be fair, Speed Boost as a Hidden Ability is pretty cool. It's better than Unburden or Damp, that's for sure. However, I still am not a big fan of this little Fire Chick. I mean come on. It's not like the most recent Lunar New Year was anything related to Fire Chickens or anything. But yeah, to reiterate: 7/10

I love all of the Hoenn Pokemon, but Torchic is probably my least favourite. However, I think it's freaking adorable :D

Torchic is also my least favourite of the Hoenn starters, even though I still somewhat like it? It started fire/fighting which was just great and I don't really like the design as compared to the other 2, but its alright I guess

#454 Toxicroak!

 

toxicroak.gif

 

My rating: 7

 

Toxicroak is quite an out-there Pokemon- a poison dart frog that stands upright and likes to fight/spray poison from its weird chin sac thing. Quite a concept. It's apparently also partially based on a kind of amphibian that can break its finger so that the bone will quickly pierce flesh for fast-acting poison. Neat stuff. It's also got a unique and highly useful Poison/Fighting typing, and fun abilities like Poison Touch and Dry Skin. There are some things I'm not crazy about with Toxicroak though- its design is an overload of gen 4 aesthetic, with random stripes and flourishes all over. The bizarre horn-looking thing and the general strange layout of the face don't help either. But, still one of the cooler Pokemon for sure.

5.3261/10

 

Meh. He's kind of forgettable and odd, I don't like the animation, and I don't like the weird poison chin.

 

I guess it looks okay though, and it's typing is good, so 5.3261/10

Love its typing. Only true weaknesses are to Ground, Psychic, and Flying. Decent design. I like the little claws/bones coming out of its hands. I feel that the animation in SM/XY could be better. I would like it if the sac below its throat would bulge more. I feel Croagunk overshadows Toxicroak in popularity (Curse Brock's attraction for girls). But yeah, pretty good pokemon overall.
