I don't really recall what made me fall in love with Raichu... After all, the anime made it seem like a complete douchebag time and time again.
Maybe it was evolving Pikachu in the game........ Idk, but I love this sucker to death!!!
Doubt thou the stars are fire, Doubt that the sun doth move;
HECK YEAH!!! <333
Raichu too~ Raichu, gyarados and... I dunno.
No idea why, just always been. I remember I found a raichu figurine on the floor in the mall when I was ~10 and it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen before in my life... And so I kept it with me everywhere. Don't remember if it was already my favorite before, or if it became such as a result... Beautiful~
Then gyarados because I spent HOURS in Red with a majikarp in the front of my party and switching it out for experience so it'd evolve... While fighting low level wild pokemon. I didn't realize that higher levels and trainers gave more experience, so it took FOREVER. Bonded. <3
I've had ton's of favorites before Growlithe. The very first pokémon I remember being my favorite was when Pokémon first came out when I was six. It was Bulbasaur, then Mew, then Cubone... Then Charzard... Then I had a falling out with Pokémon until HeartGold and SoulSilver. Then my favorite was Magikarp due to an inside joke with my friend. Now it's Growlithe which I was always fond of. Whoo....
Umbreon, i just like how umbreon looks
ive liked umbreon since gold/silver and well, umbreon is just awesome
umbreon doesnt do as well in 4th gen but he is still a good trap passer like he was in the older games, but i still like him
My favourite has been Flareon pretty much since being introduced to Pokemon. Ursaring and Ariados are currently running in second, but I've taken a sudden liking to Masquerain recently for some reason. Denchura and Urugamosu look to become two of my favourites also once Black and White hit North American shores.
