Hey everyone! So last month's topic didn't seem to be too popular among the community, so here I am wanting to do my best to try and find topics that people will be willing to do a top five for. So what are some suggestions that you might have or in general to make the Azurilland Top Fives a bit better?
I haven't participated in one of these yet, so take from this what you will. Honestly I think the overall implementation of this project is really excellent. The main reasons I haven't been participating is because school was kicking my butt and then I didn't really have any favorite legendary trios. As far as I know, participation was good up until this month, so it could've just been the particular topic? If not, ignore what I said lol.
Here are some topic ideas going forward though, at least ones I'd really enjoy talking about should I have the time to:
1. Top 5 favorite Gym designs (not Leaders, because some don't have much to judge on besides the one battle you have with them)
2. Top 5 favorite cities/towns
3. Top 5 favorite regions (both spin off and main games)
That's all I got for now, but if I can think of more I'll edit them in.
I would just recommend keeping it to ranking individual entities instead of groups, if that makes sense. What made last month so difficult (from what I've gathered anyway) was having to look at Pokemon as trios, when you could very well REALLY like one pokemon in a trio and not care about the rest, it just makes it really difficult to rank something like that, especially if you're me and don't care much about story/lore.
I know you said it was just because there are a LOT of legendaries and you didn't want to make it too overwhelming, I'm just saying another solution might have been better or just do something else altogether. Asking for suggestions is good though, all sound good so far too, any of them could be a lot of fun. Gym designs sounds especially cool.
I don't have too many ideas but hmmmmmm maybe top 5 baby pokemon? ;3 Would be neat since there probably isn't much competitive bias there like for a lot of pokemon, it'd mostly be about design or concept or something.
Maybe mega evolutions too? But that's a pretty obvious one.
Idk I don't have a lot of ideas rn but I'll come back if I do.
I didn't participate last month, but I do agree that doing trios was a bit...clunky. The topics should be individuals instead of groups.
As for ideas, top 5 gym leaders is an obvious route. If you're worried about their being too many choices, maybe you can separate it by region? It could be a whole series tbh, would take up half a year and you could use that time to refine the process if needed.
Maybe do something like top 5 cat Pokemon (you can provide a list of what you consider to be feline Pokemon,) top 5 Pokemon of a certain type, top 5 Mega Evolutions, top 5 regional rat/birds? There are lots of ways you can stretch this out or make it more specific to make more lists.

I meant to participate last month, but after I saw the article post it slipped my mind for a few days and then fell off my radar entirely. I didn't have a problem with the topic, and I'll be doing this month's Top Five!
I'm glad Altaria won; I like it a lot even if it isn't in my Top 5. Among the ones of the list I only voted for Salamence (also, thanks for putting my thought about it) and Audino, which I never expected it would have placed so high.

Twin arteries flow with the pulse of one mighty heart.
My list was 1. Lopunny 2. Audino 3. Altaria 4. Gardevoir 5. Mawile. But coming up with that 5 was incredibly difficult, and I'm sad I didn't get to mention some other favorites (Manectric, Medicham, Banette, Sableye) who didn't even make it in the top 10 list. In fact, it's so hard to pick my favorites that I now feel like I might have a slightly different top 5 if I redid it now... but oh well, that was part of what made it such a fun list to make.
I wonder if anyone else mentioned Lopunny; I love it SO much but don't rly see anyone talk about it.
The top 10 list felt mostly predictable, though i was surprised at mega slowbro!! usually i hear p negative things about it.
