    As the title says, what are your Top 5 Favorite Pokémon from the first 151? You can also explain why you chose them as your favorites.
    Yes, I'm a nerd, and I'm proud of it. :icon_cool

    Mine are: Mew, Charmander, Pikachu, Nidorino, Haunter.

    Mew is my favorite because I am a lot like Mew. My personality is almost identical to Mew's. Plus, Mew is adorable. :3
    Charmander is my 2nd favorite because, when I was 6 years old, I saw that heart-wrenching episode when he almost died. Since then, he has held a special place in my heart. <3
    Pikachu is one of my favorites because he's just awesome, hilarious, and cute. XD
    Nidorino is one of my favorites because he was my very first "catch" in the Buger King kid's meal. I loved that toy. I have no idea what happened to it, though. :/ Also, he's purple, which is my favorite color.
    Haunter is one of my favorites because he is purple, he looks bad ass, and he's a ghost Pokémon.

    Mewtwo because he is probably the most badass pokemon to ever be created. He was always my favorite as a child.

    Alakazam because he's like a magician, and I've always enjoyed magic.

    Haunter because he's creepy, and I love his design. Not to mention, he's purple which makes it looks even more intimidating.

    Ponyta because it's so friggin' adorable. Also it's one of my favorite shinies, which looks even better.

    Ninetails because it's a fox based on the kitsune. It's probably my favorite fire-type pokemon in general. :v

    My favourite gen onners are either because of nostalgia, or power.

    * Blastoise (basically my first Pokémon ever)
    *Alakazam (strong)
    *Starmie (strong and speedy)
    * Snorlax (I remember it being so hard to catch, it's encounter and the whole pokeflute thing was cool, plus it has great HP and attack)
    * Eevee

    First generation = best generation ever!!!

    My top 5:

    Starmie- I like starfish and this one has a fat gem in the middle. I was jealous of Misty and I've hated Raticate ever since the episode where it chomped Starmie's gem to pieces. There is no way a Raticate could ever beat a Starmie!

    Vileplume- Because it's based on the corpse smelling flower and that episode with Jessiebelle.

    Jigglypuff- Really cute and carried around an ingenious microphone/sharpie.

    Clefairy- Even cuter than Jigglypuff and possibly an alien. Also, the episode where they got into the bitch-slap fest with Jigglypuff.

    Weezing- I always found Weezing slightly disturbing and I liked that.

    Starmie, Aerodactyl, Haunter, Venomoth, and Parasect.

    Definitely my favorites of the generation, I think they're all quite elegant. That, and Parasect has a strange cuteness to it, I'd want to hug it but the random status effects would probably hurt! :icon_wink

    Guess I'll say Kabuto and Magnemite are "honorable mentions" as I was quite enthralled with them when I was younger. Funny thing is, I found the head carapace of a Horseshoe Crab (What Kabuto is based off of) on a rocky beach as a child and thought I'd "found the real Dome Fossil" and wondered if I could bring it to life. :lol:

    Yay another pokemon thread!

    Gen one was awesome, I mean can't go wrong with the classics. My top 5 would be:

    Pikachu-Company Mascot, cash cow, etc. I know some pokemon fans hate him but I can't help but love him. Pokemon yellow is still one of my favorite games because of him.

    Charizard-My favorite pokemon in general. He's just so cool and I loved him in the anime. I know he's not a dragon type but he's still the best Dragon imo.

    Vaporeon-I love all the eevolutions but when I was little this guy was always the water pokemon on my team.

    Arcanine-Was my all time favorite for the longest while, now my second favorite. He looks like tiger mixed with a dog, he's super strong, and a fire type.

    Nidoking-I actually didn't like Nidoking too much until I used him on my team. After that I realized how versatile he was. Still one of the best.

    1. Raichu was my all time favorite Pokemon from the first generation, and my favorite Pokemon period, until recently (when my favorite pokemon became one of the newer ones).

    2. Ekans. Always loved snakes and always adored this little guy.

    3. Squirtle because it was my first starter ever.

    4. Poliwhirl. I love frogs and I was always drawn to him.

    5. Slowpoke. Because I decided it was my Pokesona.

    Mew is my favourite too. There is something so mysterious and intriguing about Mew and I have a thing for the psychic Pokémon. Plus, Mew was my favourite as a child.

    Followed by Eevee, Weedle, Bellsprout and Seel!

    Right?! The first generation is definitely the best! I love your answers. :thumbsup:

    Great answers! I agree with Parasect being cute. :lol:

    Great answers! I love how you described Arcanine. Also, I think people hate Pikachu because he is the most common Pokemon. I love that you and I still appreciate him as a Pokemon. :slight_smile:

    HAHA! Why is Slowpoke your Pokesona? I would love to hear! XD

    ---------- Post added 14th Aug 2016 at 04:08 PM ----------

    I agree! Mew is so mysterious, but in an innocent kind of way. I also have a thing for the psychic types. They intrigued me as a child, and to this day. :slight_smile:

    Sure, I'll answer. It was actually a joke between my sister and I. My mind is a bit delayed when it comes to reactions, for example, I could be extremely angry, shrug it off, and then finally show anger 3 days later. Or I can get so distracted in my head I forget about reality and always give a 'huh?' stare at people who are talking to me. My sister named her Slowpoke after me, and from that day it stuck with us.

    Mewtwo. My fave Pokemon. Obviously useful in games. I admired Mewtwo before it turned 'good' in the first movie

    Articuno. It has a beautiful design

    Pidgeot. The first Pokemon I caught was Pidgey. I get emotionally attached to some of my Pokemon

    Lapras. It served me well in Pokemon Stadium

    Gengar. It was useful in Pokemon battles and trading card battles

    I love this. I really like how you say you get attached to some of your Pokemon. I was like this with Charmander. <3

    ---------- Post added 14th Aug 2016 at 06:18 PM ----------

    I don't know how I missed this post. Haunter is definitely awesome! And yes, his purple color makes him even more bad ass! Ahhh! Ponyta is definitely one of my top 10 favorites. So precious and bad ass at the same time. ^_^ Love your answers. <3

    Pikachu - he is so cute! Iconic as could be.

    Charzard - favorite as a kid and was probably my best card.

    Charmander / squirtle - they are cute

    Mewtwo / mew - always thought they where cute


    (I cheated and picked 6)

    Thanks! Yeah Pikachu is the real MVP, no doubt.

    Oh and I wouldn't change my top 5 but I completely forgot about Psyduck! He's perfectly derpy and cracks me up. So honorable mention goes to Psyduck.
