So yeah I'm Derian. Not my real name of course, but hey. I try to edit some, mostly existing articles rather then making new ones. I try not to get too bugged by people removing my edits, there's usually a legitimate reason even if I don't realize it at the time. I've been playing Pokémon for a really long time, I grew up on it starting with Red version. My first starter was {{p|Charmander}}, but I was foolish then and had a level 60 {{p|Charizard}} when I got to Silph Co because it was the only Pokémon I trained. My favorite generation is Gold and Silver, especially because you can revisit Kanto. It just has some of the best elements of Pokémon while still staying classic. I still love and play the new games though, and I can't wait for Heartgold and Soulsilver to be released in america.
  +
My favorite Pokémon is {{p|Golbat}}.
  +
<br>I really like water Pokémon, because some of my favorites are water. Especially {{p|Slowking}}, {{p|Vaporeon}}, {{p|Tentacruel}}, and others. I'm currently faced with the dilemma on {{g|Platinum}} on my second playthrough of which ones to use, as I currently have {{p|Slowpoke}} and {{p|Wartortle}} and I don't want too many water Pokémon on one team. <br>
  +
Despite this, {{t|Water}} is not my favorite type. In fact, I don't have a favorite type. But among my favorites are {{t|Dark}}, {{t|Ghost}} and {{t|Water}}. <br> I think I'll be very happy if they introduce either a Ghost/Water or a Ghost/Fire Pokémon. Maybe something based on <span class="explain" title="Not the move">Will'o'Wisp?</span>

Here I will list my favorite Pokémon from the different generations, as well as my opinions on them in regards to playability. The latter will take the family in general into account, not just the specific Pokémon listed. I chose pictures to represent them seemingly randomly, ones that I liked as well as ones that represent the highest amount of nostalgia for me.

| class="l" | {{p|Haunter}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_1b_093.png]]
  +
| class="c" | Haunter was so cool looking. Gastly was enough already, but stumbling upon one of these things was downright terrifying. Then one time I caught one, and it completely destroyed [[Bruno]] by itself at level 25!
  +
| class="l" | Because there weren't any good {{t|Ghost}} moves in Gen 1, it wasn't very useful in general. But nowadays it's pretty powerful, and [[Gengar]] is very commonly used.
  +
|-
  +
| class="l"| {{p|Jigglypuff}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_1b_039.png]]
  +
| class="c" | Alright so it looked pretty stupid, but there was something satisfying about stumbling upon one of these things on the way to Mt Moon because they were so rare. And one time I taught a {{p|Wigglytuff}} {{m|Ice Beam}}, {{m|Thunderbolt}} and {{m|BubbleBeam}} and somehow at only level 35 it was really powerful against the Elite 4.
  +
| class="l" | Ok so I'll admit it's a horrible Pokémon, but it's pretty adorable. It's also really fun to play as in Super Smash Bros.
  +
|-
  +
| class="l" | {{p|Sandshrew}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_2g_027.png]]
  +
| class="c" | I really have no reason to like Sandshrew, I just always have. It's somewhat of an underdog, being outdone by virtually every other {{t|Ground}} type and lacking a good STAB. There's just something about it...
  +
| class="l" | Like I said, it's pretty much out done by virtually every other Ground type. Nonetheless, {{p|Sandslash}} actually has decent stats, with good Attack and Defense. Not to mention a wonderful ability, {{a|Sand Veil}}.
  +
|-
  +
| class="l" | {{p|Zubat}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_4h_041_m.png]]
  +
| class="c" | Who could forget Zubat. It shows up in just about every frickin' cave, ready to confuse your Pokémon with {{m|Supersonic}} or {{m|Confuse Ray}}. It's also one of the few {{t|Flying}} Pokémon that isn't a bird. The thing is, Bats are cool. Plain and simple. I've always liked Zubat and the rest of it's family.
  +
| class="l" | At first Zubat wasn't very good, but with the release of generation 2 it was actually a good Pokémon. {{p|Crobat}} was fast and strong, with an assortment of moves to torment your opponent.
  +
|-
  +
| class="l" | {{p|Meowth}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_1b_052.png]]
  +
| class="c" | Meowth!!! Meowth combined adorable with a bite, and it could collect money! Though I never really used Meowth, because I owned Red version. I always loved it, mostly because of the Anime but also because it was just awesome.
  +
| class="c" | Alright so neither Meowth or {{p|Persian}} are any good. But {{m|Pay Day}} was useful!
  +
|-
  +
| class="l" | {{p|Tentacruel}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_2g_073.png]]
  +
| class="c" | Tentacruel is so cool. It's a Giant Jellyfish thing. That's right, a JELLYFISH! In my opinion Jellyfish are one of the coolest animals (well, to be generic about it). In Gen 1, it kinda resembled a pissed off mage and later on it was just so cool.
  +
| class="l" | Tentacruel was best in Gen 1, because it had amazing stats and a really high 'Special', not just a high Special Defense. So it could take hits and dish them out. But it's still a really good Pokémon, and it's every bit as awesome.
  +
|-
  +
| class="l" | {{p|Muk}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_4p_089.png]]
  +
| class="c" | Muk to me represents Pokémons version of the quintessential 'Slime' monster in most RPGs. And for this, it's awesome. It's also a big scary slime monster.
  +
| class="l" | Of course it could be better... not that it doesn't have good stats, it does. It's just stuck with {{m|Sludge}} for the longest time, and {{t|Poison}} is super effective against close to none.
  +
|-
  +
| class="l" | {{p|Hitmonchan}}
  +
| class="c" | [[Image:Spr_1b_107.png]]
  +
| class="c" | For the longest time when I was younger, Hitmonchan was my favorite Pokémon. I'm not sure why anymore, but it's still really cool.
  +
| class="l" | It sucked in Gen 1, because it lacked a good Special stat. The Special split in Gen 4 helped it a ton however, and it's Ability now is also very useful. Defensive, and offensive? Me like!

Favorite Pokémon

Here I will list my favorite Pokémon from the different generations, as well as my opinions on them in regards to playability. The latter will take the family in general into account, not just the specific Pokémon listed.
