Chespin – He’s SO cute! I love his tooth and face and his little helmet/hood thing. And he finally broke the mold of Grass starters always being reptilian (not that I ever minded that...) I love this little guy X)
Greninja – Originally, I liked Frogaider’s design better than Greninja’s. Maybe I still do. I haven’t decided. But Greninja is such a boss in competitive play that I had to put him on here. I LOVE using him in battle. The tongue scarf is creative and strangely cool too. Also, this: 31.media.tumblr.com/1ae756534c…
Bunnelby – He’s so flipping cute. I love his angry face too, because it’s not intimidating at all XD I also think it’s fun that he digs and scratches with his ears. Bunnies are the best.
Talonflame – An unbelievably epic design. An absolute boss in battle. Has one of the most helpful Hidden Abilities of any Pokémon. Plus, it was nice to finally have a starter bird that wasn’t Normal/Flying. My only critique is his name…seriously? -_-
Tyrunt – As much as I like Tyrantum, my cartoonist self squeals at Tyrunt every time I see him. His proportions and expression and everything else are just so perfect. He could be a cartoon character from something. (aside from that weird frilly collar thing XD)
Hawlucha – I freaking LOVE Hawlucha. He was the first unannounced Kalos Pokémon that I encountered while playing the game, so that was super exciting. His typing is awesome and I was waiting for it for generations. He’s the first Pokémon to have a dual-type move (which could get confusing if there are too many of them, but the concept is cool.) I love his attitude too. He’s so stoic and mysterious. The design is great too. It’s a tad bit too colorful, but it works nonetheless. He’s a luchador after all. Overall, a very well-made Pokémon in my opinion.
Dedenne – As unnecessary as another Electric rodent is, Dedenne is too cute to deny. He’s so freaking pudgy. He’s a squishable ball of cuteness X)
Pumpkaboo – Even this Pokémon’s NAME makes me squeal from adorableness!! He’s sooooooo cute!!! Look at that litte face with those little teeth!!
Goomy – Gen 6 is great for Dragon-types. They were super creative with it and created some dragons that were far different than any we had seen before. Goomy is one of them. I still remember encountering it for the first time and trying to figure out what the heck its typing was XD Even though it doesn’t really make any sense, a dragon that is literally a ball of goo is worthy of all affection.
Noivern – F***. YES. NOIVERN. As soon as I saw him in the X and Y news when Pokémon were being leaked early, he immediately jumped onto my favorite Pokémon of all-time list. His design is one of the coolest in the entire series. It’s done SO well and it breaks the stereotypical Dragon mold while still keeping a reptilian look. I LOVE his ears (I’m not sure why. They just look awesome.) His color scheme is great. That expression is badass. He’s a freaking monster in competitive. His cry is awesome. I love everything about him. Everything. Noivern is the best Kalos Pokemon.
Gogoat – I really like animal-based Grass-types. (Hence Grovyle and Torterra being on my other lists.) There’s just something really appealing about Gogoat for me. I like his face and Horn Leech is a cool attack.
Trevenant – Grass-types rule. This one’s typing and design are super neat and I love the concept behind it. That one red eye is really freaky too, which is something that Ghost-types should be X)
Espurr – One of my college friends made me fall in love with Espurr as she made me realize just how hilarious it is. If you don’t know why Espurr's expression is like that, here's why: it has organs under its ears that destroy everything within a large radius of itself upon exposure. Espurr has that face because it's perpetually trying not to kill everything in sight. This thing, this little fuzzy cat thing.....IS THE MOST POWERFUL POKEMON OF ALL. IT WILL BE THE END OF US.
If that’s not great enough already or if funny Pokemon don't cut it for you, watch the XY anime episode with Espurr in it. It’s the cutest/saddest thing ever and you just might cry.
Delphox – I think they ruined a Pokémon that had a lot of potential. Granted, I don’t like Fennekin either (I hate its eyes and expression) but Delphox’s design is rather…lackluster. The idea of a mage fox is kinda cool but its body looks so odd. It’s like a fur cloak with an awkward fox head stuck on top. They just don’t fit together. A fire fox Pokémon could’ve gone in so many other cool directions, even with the Psychic typing. But I didn't like what they did with it. (It also has disgustingly long ear hair. You need to trim that, Delphox.)
Scatterbug – It’s ugly as hell. I hate those three hairs on its head. Yuck.
Florges – Flabébé was adorable and Floette was pretty cute too, but this thing dumps ugliness onto itself in the form of a flower clump for a neck. It looks so stupid.
Furfrou – I don’t exactly hate it. But I don’t like it either. It’s pretty boring and I don’t like poodles. Its other designs (when you dress it up at a salon) look ridiculous and stupid.
Meowstic – Espurr is wonderful. Meowstic is not. Its ears are now a weird shape and it loses its original charm. I mean, now it can control its power to stop itself from obliterating everything? That’s no fun.
Slurpuff – Another Pokémon that became butt ugly upon evolution. Slurpuff was cute. It was literally a fluff of sugar. Now it’s a disguting, fat, ugly cupcake of idiocy.
Aromatisse – What the hell is it? I don’t even know what’s happening anymore.
Malamar – Another Pokémon that’ll probably haunt me in my nightmares sometime. I hate the way it looks too. It’s not a bad design, but its face is yuck.
Binacle - ……Is it just one Pokémon? Why do they look like hands? Is the rock a part of the Pokémon too? (Oh gosh, their faces. Don’t stare too long. Just walk away quickly.)
Skrelp – Kinda ugly. Nothing too interesting about it (aside from its evolution that has a really cool typing.) Another one that I don’t hate, but that I have no reason to like either.
Diggersby – For me, a Pokémon’s face and expression are incredibly important. It determines the attitude of the Pokémon, and from that, a large bulk of its personality. I do not like Diggersby’s face one bit. I’m also really unsure about the ring of fuzz around him. I don’t know how I feel about it…
Gourgeist – Its body is too thin and shriveled-looking. I miss Pumpkaboo X’(
Also, Disliking Delphox legit gives me PTSD of me getting cyberbullied.
Agreed. Aromatisse is the worst.
is it weird than I never liked Hawlucha that much?
It's fine if you don't like Hawlucha. I can totally understand that. It's pretty weird-lookin' XD
