Did not know either of these! I always assumed it really was Ho-Oh and it was a sort of teaser akin to how Togepi appears so early.


Probably should have worded that a little better, the one he sees flying WAS Ho-Oh! It was in the second episode where he mistook the picture of Articuno (the one with the other birds and Arcanine) as Ho-Oh. happy.gif

He did but even with him being so forgettable, most people remember Marill in terms of his team. It's like Misty with her arsenal of Water types yet most people remember Togepi (Psyduck easily counters this tho).

6 Lapras 8.542
5 Growlithe 8.625




At 6, just finishing off the top 5 is the duel water/ice type pokemon Lapras. Unlike most pokemon Lapras does not evolve into another pokemon. Lapras is certainly, for me anyway, such a memorable pokemon, I remember it from the anime, films, the cards and the games itself. Plus I think the design is both cool/dangerous and also quite cute at the same time. Which is what is best for most pokemon.

Growithe is a fire type pokemon that if exposed to a fire stone can evolve into Arcamine. Growithe has possibly one of the cutest designs ever. It reminds me of like a puppy meets a baby tiger and I don't know why laugh.gif. Aside from cuteness, very powerful in battle too iirc.

Out of who is left, predict who is next out?

Growlithe wub.gif the most adorable Pokemon ever.

Sounds like the Arcanine/Ninetales rivalry could actually be a fight for the top laugh.gif I love both but the former is unparalleled.

3 Ninetales 8.667 (more 10s)
4 Vulpix 8.667

And that means that the top complete evolution tree is the oh so adorable and perfect FIREFOX... erm... Vulpix and Ninetails duo. They got exactly the same score and actually, not everyone rated them the same, I gave Vulpix a 10 with Ninetales an 8 because I just find the former far cuter. However more people gave Ninetales a 10 overall which allows it to gain this rate's bronze medal on countback.

As a really cool fire Pokémon and one of the best-looking, both are high prizes for Pokémon collectors, particularly as they're fairly rare and have much more fighting power than they might look as delicate foxes. They've always stood out to me among the list, again, Vulpix more so for me, but Ninetales also... well, it looks regal! And beyond the fire, Ninetales specifically has access to a number of different typed moves through a curse mythology surrounding it (hence why it's 'tales' instead of tails).

Interesting note on translation and origins, because this Pokémon line has one of the best of them. Ninetales is called Kyukon in Japanese, which is kind of a combination of 'nine' and 'fox' (well, 'ko' is an alternate way to say kitsune, which is the legendary fox which can breathe fire), which also when you read the whole word can also mean 'old grudge', while Vulpix, is Rokon, which means 'six' and 'fox', because it has six tails. That parallel isn't so obvious in the English translation, which just seems to be the Latin word for fox (vulpes) messed around a bit, unless you assume the 'ix' is meant to be six. Which is something I was never really looking for.

Anyway, long story short, nine beats six on a tiebreak despite being eaten by seven.

Omg Squirtle being top 2 is so perfect! He was always my favorite Pokemon and Arcanine being in the F2 makes this just the most perfect Top 2 in any game ever. <3
