Global PokédeX Plus Forums _ General Pokémon _ If you had 1 pokemon, what would it be?

Posted by: PheonixGRX Mar 6 2013, 10:43 AM

If you could have any pokemon, anything at all, what would it be? There is a catch though. The only things a pokemon can do is its natural abilities, like a zubat using supersonic for its senses, or a charmander using its flame to stay alive.

If I could have a pokemon, it would either be growlithe or arcanine. Growlithe as he would be a great companion, and I would love him to bits, but Arcanine I could ride, and he would be incredibly warm to cuddle up to at night.

What would you choose?

Posted by: ItEndsHere Mar 28 2013, 08:01 PM

Hmm...............probably Dialga. Having that kind of power would make life a lot easier.

Posted by: Gambrinous Antiscian Mar 28 2013, 11:28 PM

Tyranitar. Its natural abilities are burying rivers and destroying mountains. If anybody pisses me off, I'll have Tyranitar force Google Earth to re-map their street. grin.gif

Posted by: Samoo Mar 29 2013, 06:51 AM

Axew.. for territory marking. I like my own space, so he can mark off territory for me.

Posted by: Serpavia Mar 29 2013, 06:56 AM

Eevee or Vulpix, Eevee cause it can evolve into a lot of things *cough cough* Also adorable *cough cough*, or Vulpix cause it would be hilarious to watch it use flame thrower on someone who disturbed it.

Posted by: Yuno Gasai Mar 29 2013, 09:00 AM

Definitely Lugia. Could really do with the ability to control the weather right now. And because of telepathy I would actually be able to converse with him!

Posted by: Dazmi Mar 29 2013, 06:05 PM

Ditto. It's squishy.

Posted by: Giraffe A Laugh Mar 29 2013, 06:19 PM

Girafarig, with the Inner focus ability.
I'm a very flinchy person around others, thanks to a certain father of mine, lol
To not flinch at something every 30 or so minutes would be wonderful xp

Posted by: Peter the Celebi Mar 30 2013, 08:43 AM

I am Ditto. And I love being Ditto. Ditto is great, no questions asked. You defy Ditto, then Ditto will use Ditto powers to turn into Ditto-Snorlax. Then Ditto-Snorlax sit on you and crush you. Then Ditto-Snorlax turns into Ditto-Haunter, and Ditto-Haunter will laugh it's ghostly laugh forever...... in your face.

I told you, I am Ditto. And I love being Ditto. Ditto is great, no questions asked. And now you know why, hm?

Posted by: Raksyroo Mar 30 2013, 01:22 PM

For me it would be Luxray, simply because it's my favourite pokemon wink.gif Oh and he can see through anything happy.gif

Posted by: StarNova Mar 30 2013, 02:13 PM

I'd have a Growlithe or Poochyena. Dogs are loyal, smart, and great companions/pets.

Posted by: Velocity Mar 30 2013, 04:44 PM

Mew. Its special abilities include turning invisible, creating force fields and being able to transform in any Pokemon.

Posted by: Elegant Elephant Mar 30 2013, 04:46 PM

Latias, definitely.

Though a Quilava would be pretty cute, and also useful for burning these stupid spiders in my room.

Posted by: Evil Zombie Girl Apr 6 2013, 02:52 PM

This is a hard one for me. > w< I am stuck between TWO wonderful Pokemon.

chikorita: Cute, small and friendly. I am not really looking for a huge powerful Pokemon, I want a life long friend who I can snuggle with when I am sad.

azurill: I remember my best Pokemon I ever owned in the games was an azumarill. I had him in Pokemon Sapphire (My favorite version) and he was just flipping powerful. O_O I was amazed. Plus I love water Pokemon. > w< Now he might not been the more powerful pokemon I owned but when I look back I always picture azumarill.

Yup. Those are the two I am suck with.. It's hard for me to pick.

Posted by: LiepardTrainer Apr 7 2013, 03:03 AM

Its hard to pick just one, I'm always tempted for more than one (like my top 3 favorites), like to choose 6 (like in the games) instead of just 1....

if I picked one it still be my #1 favorite - Watchog - the perfect size, not too big or too small, in my views smart, strong and cute, I know it will be loyal after we become good friends. Since its a normal type it can learn some attacks from other types too, it would be a strong battler/defender too. Dewott and Mienshao where the other two I couldn't decide on, as all 3 are my top favorites.

Posted by: Kontrazent Apr 11 2013, 04:48 PM

As a companion... Cubone.

A Pokemon for things and stuff... Giratina with its own Dimension

Posted by: IceLady Apr 13 2013, 02:54 AM

Blissey, very cute and compassionate c:

Posted by: Rookie Roo May 12 2013, 01:20 PM

Mew or Articuno...

They are my favorite Pokemon, after all.

Also, who wouldnt like to have a cute pink thingy, or a blue bird. C:

Posted by: two May 12 2013, 04:54 PM

It's really hard to decide. though, I'd probably end up having Lugia. You could ride on them, and surf the waves...

Posted by: Quomimi May 12 2013, 05:17 PM

Either a sh. Glaceon, orr.... An Altaria, probably.

Posted by: Hiro Dragon May 14 2013, 08:28 AM

A ralts or a Charizard

Posted by: Zigzagoon May 18 2013, 09:45 AM

He would be an awesome friend. I don't need to fly or anything like that. ^^'

Posted by: Arceus Awakened May 19 2013, 02:42 PM

Hm. If legendaries, I'd either go with Arceus or Suicune, depending on certain factors which I'm not explaining. X3

If not, though, then Hydreigon. So cuuuuute and destructive and adorable and squeee

Posted by: Red XII May 19 2013, 02:45 PM

A magikarp cat.gif
Cause one day it will takes revenge on the people who laughed at him happy.gif

Posted by: LegendaryDerps May 20 2013, 06:13 PM

Assuming I could stop it from destroying everything, Gyarados. i wanna ride the waaaves~

Otherwise, either Lapras or Houndoom.

Lapras for similar reasons as Gyarados, Houndoom because fire breathing demon Doberman.

Posted by: wigglytuff rocks May 21 2013, 05:38 PM

I'm not really sure, but probably either Wigglytuff, Latias, or Jirachi.

Posted by: Madame Red Jun 13 2013, 05:57 PM

Having a Misdreavus would be pretty boss. We'd have so much fun scaring people, haha.

Although Ariados would be kind of cool too. Imagine everyone's reactions to me walking down the street with a giant orange spider! xD

Posted by: Lord Zortn Jun 13 2013, 06:03 PM

awesome.gif Believe it or not, I would take a TYRANITAR!!! I would have the ability to destroy MOUNTAINS!!! awesome.gif

Posted by: Shiro Azuma Jun 13 2013, 10:35 PM

Hm.... Glaceon or Rayquaza owo

Posted by: Karofsky Jun 14 2013, 06:52 AM

Well, if we're going without limits, I'd definitely want Mewtwo tagging around with me.
But Legendaries are Legendaries for a reason, and I'd be way to lazy to track down a legend and convince it to follow me around like a pet. Especially seeing as Mewtwo is smarter than a human.

I'd love a Charizard, Feraligatr, or a Granbull, but if I had the chance I wouldn't be able to pass up Persian. Not particularly because of any ability it has, simply because it's always been the pokemon I've imagined myself with. It's just the perfect companion for me.

Posted by: Shiro Azuma Jun 15 2013, 01:01 AM


Posted by: Naoto Shirogane Jun 15 2013, 04:11 AM

For me, I had SO many to pick from from my favorites. I will go with my personal all time favorite... Typhlosion! Huggable and would fry my enemies XD

Posted by: eternal despair Jul 10 2013, 10:55 PM

Weeeell thats a bit hard. But.....Ampharos. I just love them. I didn't realize how much I liked them until I got a mareep from primo and grew really attached to it. I evolved and he's only left my team twice for a couple of minutes. So ampharos. That's what I would have.

Posted by: Zer0hundred Jul 24 2013, 09:18 PM

Arceus, because then I'd have Arceus re-write ALL the rules to say that i could have six pokemon instead of just one! grin.gif

but if im not allowed to do that, then i'd perfer absol.gif

Posted by: Daisy14 Jul 29 2013, 12:29 PM

pikachu or umbeon as well happy.gif

Posted by: Deyula Oct 19 2013, 12:48 PM

It's between either Voltorb or Dewgong. With Voltorb, it'd make a good security system, don't you think? But with Dewgong, I could ride him in the water!

Posted by: SpiritoftheOcean Oct 19 2013, 04:52 PM

If I could have one pokemon then it would have to be a phanphy I would love it to bits, and it would be a great playmate for wrestling because they are so strong and tough. It could also protect me, and we could be a kick-butt team

Posted by: Angelblah Oct 19 2013, 04:59 PM

Raichu, Because he Strong and Cute...And he can Charge my 3DS..

Just kidding about the 3ds xD

I Wouldn't do that to meh baby noes.gif

Posted by: Bonnie Clyde Oct 19 2013, 05:13 PM

Ooo, I don't know...

Either Darkrai, Lucario, Weavile, Dedenne, Pachirisu, Jigglypuff, Kirlia, Buneary, Pikachu, Celebi, Shaymin, or Jirachi...

It'd probably be Lucario though.

Posted by: Shashy Oct 19 2013, 09:38 PM

Lucario. Because it could understand me when I'm feeling down, and we could be a totally kickbutt team!

Posted by: Captain Epic Oct 21 2013, 06:17 AM


Because... it's a Mamoswine. There is no such thing as a disappointing Mamoswine.

Posted by: DragonDoesMinecraft Nov 20 2013, 07:51 PM

I would love to have a Dragonite. It's round, big, and a dragon.

Posted by: ChocoKit Nov 28 2013, 10:47 AM

Taking all aspects of my daily life and environment into account, female Meowstic. It's small enough for my apartment home, and can function as both a cute pet and a protector (if it's Pokedex entry is right about the "grind a 10-ton truck to dust" thing).

Posted by: FroakieFanatic Nov 28 2013, 10:51 AM

Sh. Latias. So cute and adorable. I would just hug it.

Posted by: SlaughterMelon Nov 28 2013, 11:35 AM

For everything I have to do in a day, Probably either Machamp or Alakazam. I think I would choose Machamp however.

Posted by: DragonDoesMinecraft Nov 30 2013, 09:16 AM

I would also love a Mega Absol. Don't ask why ;D

Posted by: SilverLugia456 Dec 2 2013, 02:24 PM

For me it would be Lugia <3 my favorite pokemon

Posted by: StarringRole Dec 5 2013, 12:49 AM

if I had to pick only one pokemon, I'd probably pick my shiny skiddo. I absolutely love her. she was my first shiny i got in the wild via grass and not fishing and I was hunting for her for a very long time. ;u;

Posted by: TinyNoel Feb 20 2014, 02:01 PM

I would love to have a pet Paras. They seem like they're gentle Pokemon, so no issues with a wild pokemon attack.
Then again, Paras's spores could paralyze me for life. grin.gif

Posted by: Noa Qep Apr 1 2014, 04:24 PM

Eevee! My own personal fox. ouo

Posted by: AikoMoriko Aug 3 2014, 05:59 AM

probably a Typlosion because they are awesome.

Posted by: Azuras Aug 6 2014, 02:22 PM

A Jolly Garchomp probably awesome.gif considering garchomps would be prettier in real life. Or a Charizard. Or, pff... a team of 6 would be better, i couldn't truly decide xD

Posted by: Gryphaena Aug 6 2014, 04:42 PM

A Tropius so I can grow a banana grove with him/her.
I'll give them lots of water so their leaves won't wilt. And if he/she gets displeased, a Body Slam will express their thoughts clearly.

Posted by: Leien Aug 9 2014, 12:43 PM

Only one! Forget Magikarp (no offense Goku) I'm going with a Tropius. You just can't beat food, transportation, and companionship wrapped into one.

Posted by: Flier Aug 19 2014, 11:30 PM

Without a doubt Malamar. It can mind control anyone, making them do what it, and consequently I, want. Need I say more?

Posted by: Butterfliez Sep 15 2014, 10:48 PM

Butterfree all the way!

Posted by: Solitary Noibat Sep 16 2014, 06:47 PM

Ninetales. It's a fire type, which alone can be quite useful. It can also easily understand human speech, speak through its illusions, it's long-lived, and the one in Waiting On A Friend seemed quite loyal to its old trainer. Great for companionship, having conversations with, and cuddling up to. Not to mention, its mind control abilities would certainly come in handy. Even if it couldn't use its illusions or mind control powers (since I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "natural abilities"), it would still be lovely to have around.

Posted by: YouCrayzFool Nov 7 2014, 12:48 PM

Zorua for sure! He would be my partner in crime, haha.

Posted by: Divoxe Dec 7 2014, 04:24 PM

Aipom, Ninetales, or Jolteon depending on how the world would be if Pokemon were real.

Posted by: Felly Dec 10 2014, 02:19 PM

Probably a Flying type or something that learns Teleport so that I can get from point A to point B easily. cat.gif Or Ditto since it can transform into those things.

Posted by: Toda Dec 28 2014, 03:18 PM


Posted by: Aberrant Mercutio Jan 5 2015, 04:59 PM

Shinx! Or maybe Eevee... they'd both be so awesome. They're tied for my favorite Pokemon, so I guess that's why. They're so adorable and stuff...

Zorua would be hella rad as well.

Posted by: Mega Rayquaza Jan 6 2015, 12:35 AM

Coulda sworn I posted here already, but whatevs.

Anyway, Keldeo. He is my bro. Something about his design, and being a noble swordsman(or would it be "'mon" in this case?).
I love it when I get him from a Pokeball in Smash 3DS, because its like he's helping me win even outside of Pokemon. grin.gif

Other than that, Serperior or Haxorus. All three of these guys I love because of my copy of White 2. I've played so many hours into that it's not even funny. I really wish I could have brought them over to X, but alas I don't have PokeBank. whyme.gif

Posted by: GlaceonGirl42 Jan 10 2015, 11:30 AM

I would choose... A Torchic! There adorable and warm and cuddle.

Posted by: Flumes May 13 2015, 01:53 PM

My favorite Pokémon: Banette. I love dolls and Ghost types. It would be fun to prank people, I bet. lion.gif

Or Celebi, so I could time travel, or Gardevoir. Because Gardevoir's cool.

Posted by: 7eeveelutions May 13 2015, 04:46 PM

Ninetales! It would be so soft and warm and great to snuggle up with on cold, snowy winter days.

Posted by: Cycloneblaze May 13 2015, 05:15 PM

I would say Gallade. Out of my two most favourite Pokémon, Gallade's least likely to bite me. XD

Posted by: anycold1011 May 19 2015, 02:39 AM

I would love to have a Suicune. Serious like me grin.gif with ability to purify water.

Posted by: seacatsmew May 27 2015, 01:08 PM

Probably Umbreon or Espeon, honestly. They're small and hopefully won't burn the house down.

Posted by: Jaybee Apr 8 2016, 08:02 AM

Pikachu all the way!

Posted by: DoktorPest Apr 22 2017, 06:53 PM

Damn, there's so many pokémon I love...But... I guess it would be Arcanine. I have many favourite pokémon, but when I was a little kid, I always imagined that I owned an Growlithe that would later become an Arcanine and we would go on travels and he would burn my bullies to ashes...Yup. It would be my beloved old friend Inferno. <3

Xerneas, who DOESN'T want to live forever?

Posted by: snapplefacts May 7 2017, 08:32 PM

pikachu for sure.

Posted by: AdorablePandas May 12 2017, 12:22 AM

I guess it would be altaria. No matter how adorable Swablu is, it still cannot compare to my fluffball.
Latias came in a close third.

Posted by: Katja95 Apr 4 2018, 04:37 PM

Garchomp, provided it looks something like this or cooler and not like a visual abomination of nature:

Or maybe Togekiss if it looked like a huge awesome fluffy white owl with a distinguishable neck and avian features.

Posted by: PeeGirl May 3 2018, 12:11 PM

I'd probably go with a Comfey. I wouldn't really consider it one of my favorites but it's cute, small (I wouldn't have room for anything too big) and I get sick easily so its healing effect could come in handy.

Posted by: lonelyTroubadour Jun 20 2018, 06:20 PM

I would have an Abomasnow. They are my favorite Pokemon, or at least one of them. It'd be fun to have something strong to help me move stuff around or just hang out with.

Posted by: aerialle Jul 12 2018, 10:53 PM

Hmmm...probably Lucario. I feel that Lucario would be very loyal and helpful, along with being able to defend me when needed. c:

Posted by: sublinket Aug 16 2018, 10:30 PM

I'd have an Abomasnow or maybe even a Gardevoir.

Posted by: Mr Spaz Sep 4 2018, 10:59 PM

Victini. That way I win at everything.

Posted by: matchstickmirages Sep 5 2018, 06:52 AM

Deoxys is my favourite Mythical Pokémon and I'd love to have a giant bit of space DNA hanging around. But Silvally is possibly my favourite Legendary (if we don't count Lunala or any Psychic types) and it would be great to have a sweet abominable friend.

If Legends and Myths aren't allowed, however, I would choose Gardevoir. Psychic, so we might be able to communicate telepathically. Psychic bestie to keep me safe and calm. Because of Gardevoir's probably vast intellect she'd have some level of autonomy within the household, though. Something about keeping Psychic-types like Gardevoir/Gallade, Jynx and Alakazam as house pets is a little off-putting to me. I'm probably overthinking it though 8p

Posted by: AregularFrankiefan Sep 5 2018, 02:26 PM

Realistically I'd probably have something low-maintenance [compared to things like Lanturn, which I can imagine would be a bit of a pain to take care of; large fish owners will surely sympathize] and typically pet-like such as Eevee.

Posted by: Peryite Sep 6 2018, 04:39 PM

skitty, swablu, or an oddish that i can carry around in a little planter c:

Posted by: Shauntal Nov 7 2018, 03:07 PM

i'll take the nightmares man having a darkrai as a buddy would be SWEET

otherwise, probably Lucario, Gallade, or Mismagius. or a skitty yeeeeee

Posted by: Azuras Dec 13 2018, 06:30 PM

I love stuff that has hidden uses or traits that would make them absolute badass if placed irl. Or that you can ride wink.gif.

Garchomp is what I would probably choose. I like him as far as design and power go. No levitate or magnet rise yet he can "fly like jet planes" and is seen flying in all anime seasons while being ridden by someone. Would be less hard to take care of than a bigass Salamence. I have a weak spot for Dragon types.

Second would most probably be a pokemon that knows Teleport and Psychic or Confuse ray. Badass stuff.

Then I would love to train an electric type pokemon of some kind. Then an interesting grass type that knows vine whip and aromatherapy or some sort of healing and regeneration and is low maintenance. Honestly Meganium sounds like a good house/garden mate.

Then you have stuff such as Lucario (aura seeing), Ninetales (fire/ice but low key psychic)...

Posted by: ImaginaryBears Aug 13 2019, 07:18 PM

» As much as I want to say a steel type, they are usually huge and not very ... house-friendly.

Maybe a Leafeon (for that clean air), or a Furret, who is adorable as heck and would probably be the best snuggler.

Posted by: Heartsmith Sep 26 2019, 08:55 PM

I'd have to go for Raichu since it's big and cuddly and as an electric type could be a useful pokemon to have around.

Posted by: Yushy Jan 22 2020, 05:14 PM

Vaporeon + o +

Posted by: SangruineRoku Jul 18 2020, 05:09 PM

Probably gyarados, because it's a giant snake dragon (that isn't actually a dragon unless mega), what's not to love? I could ride it, or cuddle it, or just chill out on the sea. Best friends forever, just my sea monster and I.
