Oh I guess I’ll answer these.
What is your favorite Pokemon and why?
Manaphy and Absol. Absol is just really cool and I love the design, Manaphy is adorable and over the course of both the film and getting the egg in the original ‘Ranger’ game and raising it through Gen IV and V, I’m quite attached to it.
What is your favorite main series or spin-off game?
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 has by far the best narrative of any title in the entire franchise. Since the updated version adds a bunch of more cool stuff, and the game is amazing already, I’d have to say PMD Explorers of Sky is my favourite game.
What is your favorite generation and why?
Hmmm… I’m still really attached to II, since that’s where I started. I find Johto to be one of my favourite regions, aesthetically, and the double region twist was amazing. I liked IV a lot too, that’s the last time I really got into the main franchise.
What is your favorite starter?
That’s tough. I adore Totodile and his evo line. Treeko is cool but I’m not a fan of Sceptile, Grovyle is sick. And recently I’m a huge fan of Fennekin’s line. All the X/Y starters are cool, building the classical RPG trinity of Paladin, Thief and Mage. I’m a Mage at heart so Fennekin was a natural choice.
What is your dream team?
Varies from game to game. It’s generally starter + cool mons I find as I play and really like. I have no set in stone team I want to use.
Would you like to play with others on pokemon showdown?
I play extremely rarely with friends, but overall no. I have completely no interest in the idea of competitive play in Pokemon. My experience in a Pokemon game ends when the region has nothing left to offer. All legends hunted down, all story arcs complete.
Have you played any fan games?
A few. Pokemon Raptor is fantastic. I also had a lot of fun with what was done of Super Pokemon Eevee Edition back when I played it.
I keep meaning to sit down with Pokemon Reborn, and I did download Pokemon Uranium recently, but I’m not overly motivated to start them yet.
Are you hyped for gen 7?
