You get one Pokemon companion, which is it?


#1

Raichu, of course.

If you could have one Pokemon companion, which would it be?


#2

popplio the best


#3

As someone who enjoys the cold more than the heat, this little friend can’t be beat!


#4

get a snorlax, strategically deploy it in front of buildings shitty rich people need to get into, say “well i would put it back in its pokeball, but i’m just not feeling it, maybe if a shitty rich person gave me a lot of cash i would put the snorlax back in the ball,” grow fabulously wealthy and retire to a private island to spend the rest of my life hanging out in peace with my giant sleepy friend


#5

Snorlax Owns!

Listen, Snorlax… Only Snorlax can hold 10…

Look at him! He’s fuckin’ huge!

He’s more ripped than you!


#6

It should be obvious.

Feraligatr.

The cheap answer to this one is Ditto, or maybe Zoroark, because then you can have every other Pokemon by virtue of their transformative abilities. If I had to give an actually answer though… idk, probably a Bulbsaur. That was my first starter, and I’d love to have one of those little guys. When it evolves into a Venusaur you could just chill in the shade of the flower on its back… That’d be pretty sweet.

Salazzle so she can smuggly laugh at everyone I meet.


#9

the original cool pokemon, Squirtle!

Dragonite, no contest.

I imagine it happened like this:

When I was a kid I never liked to walk alone, especially not outside but - this time I did, because I wanted to get away from my brother (who was thumping me indoors) and before I knew what I was happening I was out back past the yard and into the creek. The creek rarely came up to my ankles but that day it was heavier than usual, halfway to my knees. I almost turned around when I remembered I was out back, in the woods, alone.

But something caught my eye.

A flash of blue in that little spot where the creek turns and there’s that clump of rocks that make a little pool. Something wiggling in there. I had never seen a Pokemon that wasn’t a Pidgey, Spearow or the like- what could this be?

It tried to get away, but it was caught. It had tried to pass through a narrow passage in the rocks, and was now really wedged. Normally I’d never tough a wild Pokemon but I was thrashing by the time I realized what was going on and I had to help it. Carefully I leaned down and tugged its head, just a little. It struggled even more as I wedged my fingers between the jagged rock and its rubbery body.

Without a sound it popped free a swam away. I sighed and turned back toward the house, slipping a little out of the embankment. Back on the grass I set off for home but turned back when I heard a splash.

There was the Dratini, back in the little pool near the rocks at the side of the stream. It slapped its tail and looked at me. I hopped down the embankment, not even caring that I covered myself in mud along the way. I knew dad would pitch a fit that I’d ruined my school shoes but I didn’t care, it was a Dratini and it wanted me!

At the water’s edge I squatted down and held out my hands, barely submerged in the chilled water. It curled into my palms and nuzzled against my thumb. I stroked its head and held it close to my chest.

I’ve never had to outside along ever again.

Charmander, always and forever.


#12

Greninja, for that tounge/scarf action


#13

Mimikyu!!! Creepy & cute, also extremely good in fights. It just wants a loving friend! I could be that friend.


#14

Mankey def. I’ll make it love me by fighting it first.


#15

pancake raichu is the only pokemon


#16

Chansey! Normal types are my favourite.


#17

Litwick. 100% of the time. No exceptions.

This is mostly because I played a homebrew Pokémon tabletop with my friends for 5 years where a Litwick was my starter. This it is now absolutely my favorite Pokémon.


#19

I’ve always been partial to Meowth. Alolan Meowth is the best though so Alolan Mewoth specifically.


#20

I’ll only ever have one choice, my boy getting it done with one HP left.


#21

Alolan Meowth is very good. If I had to go with a cat pokemon, they’re definitely high up on the list. Like top 3 with Meowstic and Litleo.
