Which reminds me. There really needs to be a pokemon that can learn all HM moves (besides Mew). There's nothing more annoying that wasting a valuable move spot on something like Flash, or wasting a spot on your team for that one low level Pokemon that does know Flash.
I usually had someone like Raticate that was my HM slave. I ****ing hated it when I'd be playing through the game, and I'd have to give up a move spot for cut, or rock smash. A Venusaur has no business knowing cut!

I remember my very first play through, I was all about stacking my Blastoise with HMs.

"He can learn Strength AND Surf?!? HELL YES!!" Poor, naive young Scarecrow King.

I did the same thing, but to a Snorlax

Does anyone have that Pokemon they can't evolve because they love it so much or despite it probably not being the best fighter in your team you have to have it in your party? I have one it's my Meowth. I don't know why, but I love it and for some strange reason refuse to evolve into a Persian.

Nah, I always go for evolving. If I could've evolved my Yellow Pikachu, I would have.

There are some Pokemon I don't like to evolve such as my Pikachu. The only way I'd probably evolve it, would be if I have an extra one of the same species.

Neither will I. Lickitung has a great design, and they completely ruin it with the evolution.

I always liked the weird, one-off Pokemon that didn't evolve. Lickitung, Jynx, Farfetch'd, Snorlax. They were all awesome to me.

I'd like to see Farfetch'd evolve into a Flying/Fighting and his stick becomes a sword. I always found him interesting. I remember in Red and Blue, I used him after trading for him because he could learn Cut and Fly. I thought that was awesome.

Which reminds me, Generation IV, aka Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, really dropped the ball when it came to Pre-Evos and Evos for past Pokemon. Licklicky was definitely one of the less desirables.

I would actually disagree with that. If you want to argue about their designs, that's subjective. However, a lot of them either gave much needed stat boosts to Pokemon making them more usable or helped give them a varied movepool.

Take Piloswine. Ice and Ground are two powerful offensive types and he'd get bonus damage using both. However, his stats sucked. Now he can evolve into Mamoswine who has even higher attack. I'm using one in White 2, it made Drayden the easiest Gym leader to defeat. Cheren was tougher (and I had a Riolu with Force Palm for him so it wasn't even that hard either).

ok i'm starting to lose it, the PWT is cheap as all ****

i go in with a decent team that each has a variety of moves, get paired off against a leader who is extremely weak to 80% of my team, balm one move and my entire team is down.

Very true. If trained properly Mamoswine can kick all of the ass!

He's even better in Gen V with Thick Fat as a hidden ability. Neutralizes his weakness to fire and makes Ice 50% less effective.

I need to go find the Rock Slide TM to teach him that. Then we'll be in business.

Forgot about his Thick Fat hidden ability. Man, Mamoswine is a beast!

Pokemon I never evolve: Scyther, Magmar, Electabuzz, Jynx, Seadra. They look pretty badass as is. I would like an evolution for Dunsparce. Maybe Dragon/Ground or Dragon/Normal.

I generally think that Mewtwo is one of those Pokemon that they shouldn't screw around with. But I actually kind of like that design.
