Venusaur. First it's a frog with a bulb on its back, then it's a flower. A bit too girly, if you ask me. Real original. I could do that with the frogs in my backyard.
Blastoise. A turtle. That's it. They tried to make it cool by giving it cannons, but it has a digimon-esque theme. Very bad.
Charizard. This crappy generic dragon has crappy stats and crappy typing. No wonder its NU. It has a fat round body, spindly arms and wings that don't look like it could use to fly.
Samurott. Aaa ah, now this is what I'm talking about! A huge sea lion, with a shell on its head and a narwhal like horn. Awesome! It even has shells which act like swords and it can be like a samurai!
Serperior. A long, regal serpent, with arms folded behind its back, giving it a polite sort of feel. Very fast, great defences and contrary will help it destroy teams! I also like its leafy tail, and anyway snakes eat frogs like venusaur.
Emboar. It make look fat, but don't be fooled people! That's all muscle. It looks like ganondorf, with big claws, and fire surrounding its neck. Better that charizards fiery tail. It's very bulky and powerful. A perfect fire fighting starter.
