Didn't have time to post when I said I was going to, but here I am. My list was
So, four of my five Pokémon made it. I was thinking about including Gallade and Audino in my list but decided not to. I was a bit surprised Beedrill made the list and Lucario didn't, but I can see why now. Overall this was a really enjoyable month for this event IMO!
Hey there everyone! This month's top five topic has been revealed! What are your top five villainous teams in the Pokémon games? What made that team appealing? Was it their leader? Their goals? Their admins? Their outfits? Pokémon Choices? Anything goes!
I do want to let you know, if you want to submit an evil team from a Pokémon Spin-Off game, that is totally fine. So teams like Cipher or Snagem from Coloseeum/XD and Meanies or Skull from the Mystery Dungeon games do count!
Lists are due on August 20th. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with. <3
I'm curious; how many people had villanous teams from side games in their top 5s? I had two of them (Cipher, Dim Sun).
I didn't submit because I found this difficult to rank, villainous teams in general don't really stick out to me... but I was thinking of the Go-Rock squad from the first Ranger game lmao. They were just so goofy and fun. Same reason I love Team Flare - the villainous teams that are taken seriously don't really do it for me, so the ones that get a laugh out of me are my favorites.
I'm not too surprised by the list, tbh. Plasma being #1 and Rocket being #2 seemed right (they were #2 and #3 on my list respectively). Galactic and Aqua being on there seemed right as well, although I can't say much about Skull/Neo Plasma since I haven't played those games.
My #5 was Cipher, because I don't know much about it. Then #4 was Aqua, #3 was Team Plasma, #2 was Flare and #1 was Team Rocket. This was my entry for Rocket:
Team Rocket is the classic team. They appear on every episode of the anime one way or another. Their only real goal is to steal rare and valuable Pokémon, un like other Teams who have complex hidden agendas. They also do immoral things to get cash, like selling Slowpoke tails, though they are also responsable for the creation of Mewtwo. They always get thwarted and for some reason they never really train their Pokémon, except maybe for the executives and the leader, Giovanni. And speaking of Giovanni, he managed to run a gym and a whole team of criminals! His appearances on the anime are maybe the only aspect that really gives this team a sense of real danger, and his having his Persian by his side makes him even more similar to a stereotypical villain. On the games, this team has many small evil plots, but a commendable aspect is how in the game, after Red beats Giovanni, he keeps his word and disbands the team.
It was the longest entry I've done since I know more about them.
New top five question is up! What are your top five favorite baby Pokemon?
So these guys:
Some new things to keep in mind moving forward:
*If you feel like you can only write one sentence about a Pokemon. That is fine. Do keep in mind though, if you want to be featured in the article, to write a minimum of three complete sentences per entry.
*Deadline has been extended to the 23rd.
If you have any questions, feel free to poke me! Have a good day. c:
