Fire Red - Tauros - Figured I use him to surf to Cinnabar, became bros and used him for what was left of the game.
Emerald - Shroomish - Wanted a grass type to cover for Torchic. Breloom became my favorite Hoenn pokemon.
Carvanha - Needed something that could surf, became one of the few water types I like.
Black - Sewaddle - Ran into a shiny one, decided to use her. She never failed to get the job done.
Sandile(second run) - Thought I would use it for a bit, Nixon the Krookodile ended up leading the team.
Black 2 - Swanna - needed something to surf and fly, La'Swanda ended up saving my ass on more than one occasion.

Probopass. In fact, I hated it at first. I thought they completely ruined one of my favorite Pokémon (Nosepass).

But the thing is... I love noses and mustaches... so it was only a matter of time before the big lug grew on me. I love the mininoses, love the mustache, love the giant nose, love the 'hat,' love that it's based on a moai statue, love that it's a defensive Pokémon, love that it's a steel type that is better at spec than att, and love pretty much everything about it now.

This kinda. Was a ballache working with a basic pokemon at lvl 40 odd.

Porygon Z in SS too. Made an effort to use all pokemon i'd never tried before, and i fell in love with that nasty plotting glass cannon

Dunsparce. It ended up becoming one of my favourite Pokemon surprisingly. GREAT movepool, serene grace as it's ability and i noticed it has such a cool colour combination of yellow and blue. I just now hope it gains an evolution this generation of either Normal/Dragon or Normal/ground. Even just Normal would be fine tbh as long as it gets an evolution.

I only used him on PS, but I'm starting to really like Garbodor.

R/S/E: Ralts. Hated it when Wally first caught it, but went out of my way to find one to fill my dex. Now Gardevoir is my favorite pokemon
D/P/Pl: Loads. Electevire and Magmorter, due to not liking Magmar and Electabuzz as a kid, Starly due to just thinking "Another pidgy", Buneary/Lopunny due to thinking they couldn't possibly be good, and in all of these cases I just plain grew up and realised they were all awesome
B/W/BW2: Emboar, not liking the third fire/fighting, but then realised it was pretty damn versatile, Lilligant due to thinking it just looked like Princess Peach but then realising the potential of Quiver Dance/Petal Dance/Own Tempo, Darmanitan due to catching it because I needed a fire type on my Snivy run and then realised "Holy crap this thing is a badass", Cinccico because I thought it looked to cutesy, but then grew to love it's spam attack style...Lets just say Black and White suprised me a lot.

On my first file of SoulSilver, I didn't get it. I just didn't understand why anyone would use that thing.
On my second file, I decided to use it...
Next to Alakazam, it's the best thing on my team...
And that's including Gyarados and Gengar.

Dis right here. I ran into a shiny one that I barely caught in my very last Poke Ball in Black 2.

Also, Crobat. I always hated Zubat but Crobat is a bro.
