Milotic is an aquatic, serpentine Pokémon with a primarily cream-colored body. It has red eyes with long, pinkish antennae above them. Additionally, there are long, hair-like fins above its eyes, which begin thin and thicken towards the tips. These eyebrows extend to almost half of Milotic’s body length and will be longer on the female than the male. On top of its relatively small head is a straight spike. The tail consists of four large, blue fins with pink ovals in their centers. Each of the tail fins overlaps the next slightly, causing it to resemble a fan. While it has not been depicted, Milotic’s scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle.
Flygon resembles a slightly insectoid, bipedal dragon. It is primarily light green and has a pair of large rhombus-shaped wings with red trim, toeless hind legs, and skinny arms with three-clawed hands. Its tail has several dark green stripes and three small green rhombus shapes with red trims at the end. It has large eyes and a pair of green antennae that point back. The eyes have red covers that prevent sand from getting into its eyes. With its wings, it kicks up sandstorms to hide. Its wings make a “singing” sound when they are flapped, earning Flygon the name “The Desert Spirit”. It lives in the desert.
Beginning its life as Ralts (the Pokemon that kinda looks like male genitalia), it’s a little surprising it turns into Gardevoir – who looks a lot like some kind of elegant dancer (and a lot of other things, if you dare to venture into Google Image Search – which reminds us: NEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH ANY POKEMON EVER BUT ESPECIALLY NOT GARDEVOIR). Apart from its traumatic internet legacy, it’s a pretty solid Pokemon (now one of the added Fairy-types), and its Pokedex entries indicate that it would do anything to protect its trainer. Always nice to know your Pokemon has Stockholm’s Syndrome.
Sceptile is a reptilian, bipedal Pokémon. Its neck is somewhat long, and it has two crests on its head. It has semicircular, yellow eyes with red rims. Its lower jaw and a belt-like band across its waist are also red. Along with its back, it has two lines running down the middle and two rows of yellow nodules that are described as seeds. Its tail is shaped similar to that of a palm tree’s branch. Both of its long arms have two sharp, elongated leaves and three claws. These leaves allow it to use its former signature move, Leaf Blade.
Starting from cute little Torchic, its a little confusing how Game Freak arrived at Blaziken – human-looking ninja chicken with pillars for legs. But who cares, because – yet again – the Fire-type starter ends up being pretty badass (and, according to you voters, way better than all the other starters – again). It probably helps that all of the recent Pokemon X & Y players were gifted a free Torchic that they evolved into a Blaziken that came with its Mega Evolution stone (thus depriving poor Klefki of a spot on your team). Even people who aren’t very pro-Blaziken have to admit its Speed Boost ability tips the scales pretty heavily in its favor, although the fact it has chicken legs for arms should make it a lot less coordinated than it is.
Swampert is a bipedal Pokémon. It has a large cobalt blue body and large three-fingered hands. It has two orange gills that protrude from round patches on its cheeks. Its head has two large semicircular black fins that extend from the top of its orange eyes to the back of its head. Its tail fin is big, broad, and black. It has a white underside and orange ridged portions above its hands and three-toed feet. Swampert is very strong with enough power to easily drag a boulder weighing more than a ton, batter down opponents, and swim faster than a jet ski. It has a powerful vision, enabling it to see even in murky water.
Based on looks alone, it’s tough to top Aggron: it’s a giant, metallic-armored Triceratops/Godzilla mashup that now has an even more badass Mega Evolution. It’s really kinda unfair that’s its hoarding so much badass design for itself while Smeargle is just sitting over here PAINTING SHIT WITH ITS TAIL. C’mon, Aggron, learn to share a little.
Who says you need to be a Legendary to be an amazing, unstoppable, badass Pokemon? Definitely not anyone with Metagross on their team. For all the dragons and gods of Pokemon, a robot spider with enormous defensive capabilities is sometimes exactly what you need. This applies to real life too.
Salamance fits nicely into the “Generic-Looking Dragon” range of Pokemon – which is fine, because (like Dragonite and Mega Charizard), pretty regular-looking dragons are still pretty awesome. Salamance stands out a bit from its dragon brethren by following the typical bug/butterfly evolution pattern – little baby Pokemon, worthless cocoon stage, culminating in a winged-majestic-badass emerging. Except, obviously, dragons are about a thousand times better than the best butterfly. Yes, even Timid Butterfrees.
Slaking is a large, bulky, ape-like bipedal Pokémon. Most of its shaggy fur is brown, along with the semi-circle patterning under its eyes. Its face, chest, hands, and feet are lighter in color. Its brows are thick and jutting, and it has a large, pink, pig-like nose. Around its neck is a white-collar of fur that extends over the top of its head before ending in a small tuft. It has large, five-fingered hands and two-toed feet. During most of the day, Slaking lolls around and sleeps. It is considered the laziest Pokémon, but even when it is lounging it’s saving energy. It can exert a lot of power by releasing built-up energy all at once and can regain lost energy through the use of its former signature move, Slack Off.
