A Taste of The Fury



I think most of us have that one pokemon that we started out hating, but over time, for some reason or another, it stole your heart. Especially with the newer generations, when you first see them you can't help but ask 'what were they thinking?', but eventually you start getting use to that particular pokemon until you're fond of it.

So what's that one or more pokemon that grew on you?


Mine, personally, would have to be Patrat/Watchog and Trubbish. Patrat's design I found too dull, while I really didn't care at all for Trubbish. After fighting with Watchog in Pokemon White, I've become quiet fond of them and they've turned to be one of my favourite pokemon from that generation. The amount of hate Trubbish received made me pity the little guy. I find him quiet adorable, and he had started to grow on me in time too.

Hoppip is another. I'm not all fond of his evolution line, but Hoppip himself I found annoying as a kid because of how useless they were. Now that I'm older, I find his design to be adorable.

Chikorita I found pretty fragile looking and lacked in comparison to the other two starters. I always felt bad for Silver because I always chose Totodile and stuck him with Chikorita. Here's this bloke with a terrible attitude and a glum outlook on life, and he's tagging around this pokemon with a giant flower on its neck. I think Ash's Chikorita changed that seeing as she was a little badass.

So what about you? Who's that pesky little pokemon that tugged on your heartstrings?

I have no idea on this.
But I have no feeling towards Shinx,and I gradually grew in love with in because of the fact that I always transform into a Shinx in Explorers of Sky.

I have to say very honestly, when I first saw Cyndaquil, I nearly threw up. The way his eyes were constantly closed made me think that (when i was younger of course,) he would always strike attacks but they would miss the foe. But I tried him once in my Heart Gold, and the way the Quilava design came out was too awesome. <3

The second one I mostly disliked was Squirtle. When your playing Pokemon Rescue Team or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, the way the Squirtle smiled...It was horrible. And the way it cried when it was on the beach when Zubat and Koffing took its Relic Fragment I seriously thought to myself "Kill me now." But its evolution. GOD Wartortle was cute. So now, im perfectly fine with both pokemon! grin.gif

I didn't like stunfisk too much at first. But I decided to use it on my white 2 team and he's pretty freaking awesome. He's the tank in my team. His derpy look kinda grew on me too. He's so adorable to me now:)

Wartortle. I've always loved Squirtle and Blastoise, but for the longest time I never really cared for Wartortle. Recently, however, I've begun to love Wartortle. This has happened with me for a lot of middle evolutions, actually (Croconaw being another example)

I kinda hated Psyduck... I mean, he just stood there... doing nothing but having headaches and lousy attacks. I also didn't like his evolution but since I recieved W2 I started liking the little guy. Now he's one of my fave water-types and the strongest Pokémon on my W2 team.

psyduck.gif & golduck.gif are my buddies now woot.gif

My body...
is made out of swords.
Iron is my blood
and glass is my heart.


I have overcome countless battlefields undefeated.
Not once have I retreated,
Nor once have I been understood.
Always alone....
On the hill of swords...
intoxicated by victory...


Thus, this life has no meaning...
This body...surely was...
Made out of blades.

I don't want to say I hated it to start with, because I really didn't, but Joltik. Joltik didn't stand out to me at all when Gen 5 was announced, I found the whole generation rather bland and had no favourites.

Then, one picture, one picture changed it all.



IT'S SO DAMN CUTE.

This started the OBSESSION that, as you can see, has yet to end.

Of course, the rest of the generation has grown on me since then as well, I have quite a few favourites now.

It wasn't too special to me. No signature moves, one of the 3 worst type pairings, etc. Sure it can travel through time, but Dialga can freakin' CONTROL time.
I started to like it because of an RP. Won't go into much detail, but it was my favorite character of mine and was also a popular one with everyone else. It made me start to like, and eventually LOVE the freakin' awesomeness packed into that little, green fairy body.

For me, even I'm surprised at times, when Gen 5 was announced, Pokemon revealed, every time I saw Watchog, I'm my mind back then was like "another easy Pokemon to defeat, nothing special about it" - from the pass of time, watching in the anime, using in the games - its now my #1 favorite Pokemon for now (taking over Liepard for first place by a 1%,) episode BW 115..... that sad expression with its eyes got to me, and instantly became #1, Everywhere I go while driving, I have to carry my Watchog keychain plush, hang it by the rear view mirror.

I never expect it to love Watchog or that it be my #1.

I'd have to say one of the 'mons that I was ambivalent about but now really love is Oshawott. I first saw his artwork when the BW starters were revealed, and I was like, "WTE is with that derpface? dumblook.gif And that huge nose?" Obviously, I had issues with his design. But one of my old Laptew pals was a huge fan of Oshawott, and his enthusiasm for it really warmed me up to that otter. cat.gif That, and once I saw his final evo, I was like, "WOW, that is so awesome.gif! A badass samurai otter!" And the fact that he has an IMO awesome shiny color scheme really helped that as well.

Vanilluxe. The first time I saw it I thought "WTF is that thing?", now I have one in my White 2 team. Silly ice cream.
(I tend to eventually love the things I find weird at first, so I half expected that to happen. xD)

Also, Vesus Levide made me appreciate Oshawott's cuteness

Let Us In



Conkeldurr is the strongest example of this for me so far. I didn't care much for him at first, but when I read his Pokepark entry on Bulbapedia, I fell in love with him. I'd get a stuffed animal of him if I could.
QUOTE(Pokepark Entry)
He looks stubborn, but he is very gentle at heart. He is strict with himself and others, but he takes good care of them, so Pokémon in the Area like him.

I wanted to give him a big hug after reading that. :3

I warmed up to Drapion, too. I'm not sure how it happened, but I love him now.

Kangaskhan is another pokemon that I never paid any attention to, but now I love her. For some reason, I always though her stats were something like Smeargle's or some other random Normal type. That's far from true, I found out. XD

The Timburr line is another one that's slowly gotten my love. At first, I saw Conkeldurr, and thought to myself, "Man, why did GF go for a derpy elderly fighter who's obviously just Dumb Muscle? -_-.gif" It wasn't until I raised a Timburr of my own that I started liking him. cat.gif Probably the biggest catalyst for that was Wake-Up Slap. Around Pinwheel Forest, I leveled one up to learn that and said to myself, "Man, it' be so funny to see a piece of fanart having Hilda command a Timburr to use Wake-Up Slap on a Team Plasma goon and the Timburr bitchslaps the Plasma Grunt with that 2x4. cackle.gif" And then I checked out Conkeldurr's name etymology, and it turns out that it wasn't meant to be a derp reference. It's actually from concrete and elder portmanteau'd together. That really changed my attitude towards the entire line. ^_^.gif

Easy: Sawk. I hated the design at first but when I went up against Lenora, I needed a Fighter. It was a choice between Timburr or Sawk. I caught the Timburr first then went for a Sawk...who proceeded to break several of my Poke Balls even at 1HP! When I finally caught him, I took him to the Gym and he went completely nuts on the place; there was no stopping him. That Sawk became my power hitter in Black and I fell in love with him. Now I'm an admitted Sawk fan.

With a more recent example, I'd probably have to go with Ferrothorn.

I hated it aesthetically from the moment I saw it. However, it wasn't until White 2 when I really started to like Ferrothorn. I ended up using one towards the end of the game and loved it. It could tank hits like a champ, as long as they weren't a strong fire attack, and it'd be able to slowly take down some tough opponents. As for Ferrothorn's appearance, this TCG card made me start to like it. I don't get why they put it in the dumbest pose in Gen V, I get that it hangs from ceilings in caves but it's weird when you're fighting outside.

When I was younger, I absolutely despised Zubat. Most people do too. I never really used repels, so I had to run through a cave full of Zubat all the time.
When HeartGold came out, I wanted to try something different and use a Zubat. Let me tell you now, I fell in love with that Crobat. He was so fast, so physically strong and he was a brilliant sweeper for my team.

More recently, I decided to return to fifth gen after postponing my White Adventure. I was looking for a Fire type when I opted for Darumaka. He was so cute and tiny that I initially named him Pipsqueak, but I soon learned that he was anything but. Darumaka (and Darmanitan) are absolute beasts. Good speed and outrageous attack. Darmanitan became my best Pokémon and he is definitely in my top ten.

So, when Gen V was released, I hated Trubbish and Garbodor, just like everyone else. Then I got Black 2, and decided I wanted to go through the game with a whole team of only the stupidest, ugliest, derpiest Pokemon I could think of. And that is how I found out that Garbodor is a badass. It has a less than ideal special attack stat, and it still completely wrecks stuff with a combination of Toxic and Venoshock.

A long time ago, I used to hate Cradily. I was like "This thing is odd looking and a pain in the arse to take down. Why would I want this". It wasn't until more recent generations that showed Cradily has the capability to take on just about anything. Stockpile, combined with Leech Seed and/or Recover allows it to have amazing survival capabilities, and with Suction Cups, it isn't going to be taken away by phazing moves. This allows a teammate to stock up on Swords Dances and some speed buffs, and Baton Pass to this monster right here.

Another Pokemon I originally didn't like but ended up liking after using it was Terrakion. I was like "Virizion is my bro, yo. So stand back and let Virizion show you how it's do-" and then Virizion faints to Gust. Cobalion suffers from "Wannabe Lucario" syndrome, and sucks at its job sadly. Terrakion is a whole other story though, as it can take a hit, dish out the pain, and is pretty decently fast for a Rock type. Good movepool assists him as well, which makes sense now as he's one of the strongest contenders in the OU tier of the competitive play.
