This was something I wanted to ask some time ago but exams got in the way. So, my belief is that Gen V is somewhat of a reboot. I.e. they opted for a fresh new start of Pokemon. So in this poll, I plan to find similarities between the new Gen V and the original Gen I and ask you guys which is the best. In terms of best, it can be based on anything, appearance, effectiveness in both ingame and competitive or even it's name. You decide.
So, here are some similarities between the two.
- Both are pure fighting types - Both are used to help people build buildings - Both reach their Stage 2 evolution via trading
List of comparisons to be done Day 1: Geodude line vs Roggenrola line - 44.35% to 55.65% Day 2: Machop line vs Timburr line Day 3: Litwick line vs Gastly line Day 4: Sawk/Throh vs Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan Day 5: Pidove line vs Pidgey line Day 6: Sewaddle line vs Caterpie line Day 7: Venipede line vs Weedle line Day 8: Pikachu vs Emolga Day 9: Audino vs Chansey Day 10: Bouffalant vs Tauros Day 11: Foonugs line vs Paras line Day 12: Foongus line vs Voltorb line Day 13: Tentacool line vs Frillish line Day 14: Ducklett line vs Psyduck line Day 15: Cottonee/Petilil line vs Oddish/Bellsprout line Day 16: Kabuto/Omanyte line vs Tirtouga/Archen line Day 17: Mewtwo vs Genesect Day ??: Lavender Tower vs Celestial Tower Day ??: Pokemon Laboratory vs P2 Laboratory Day ??: More locations to be done. Will look into it
I'm open to ideas on which locations to compare since it's interesting that both regions have 23 routes before the elite four. Route 22ish? are away from the mainland. I'm also open to more pokemon comparisons. --- UMvC3 Team ~ Nova[Centurion Rush]/Rocket Raccoon[Pendulum]/Amaterasu[Cold Star] ~ PSN: Xr0s-up Official Galactus of UMVC3
Oh, and Machop (Machamp) because Dynamically punching everything is fun. When I experiment with Iron Fist Conkeldurr, my opinion may change. (: --- Let me make this clear; Generation 3 remakes are coming this generation, 5. Get over it.
I don't like Machoke very much, but Machop and Machamp are decent designs.
I actively dislike Timburr and Gurdurr, and find Conkeldurr to be somewhat ok, if not a bit strange.
So.. I'm going with Gen 1 here. My opinion is based entirely on design, not stats/movepool, but whatever. --- If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.
