I've always loved Growlithe but hated Arcanine for reasons unbeknownst to even me I've always hated Gengar. While the rest of it's line looks like creepy ghosts, Gengar just looks like an annoying jackass.
Quite a few Gengar tactics ARE annoying jackass tactics.
I loved using Murkrow in gen 3. I got over its paper defenses problem in game by EV training its attack and speed. I wanted it to evolve into a stronger Pokemon and keep its speed and its awesome black and red coloring. Unfortunately, they went in a completely different direction. Wow. It now was half white (which I think is kind of odd for a Dark Pokemon), had a stupider hat, and worst of all, was much slower. This disappointed me, but I supposed I could still live with it. That is, until they revealed its English name. Honch? HONCH? They named my favorite Pokemon's evolution HONCH???!! NOOOOO!!!
