Who is your favourite Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White? With so many great new Pokémon to choose from, it's a tough question to answer. Ours changed constantly from the moment Zorua and Zororak were revealed as the first Generation V Pokémon back in February last year to the game's release last month.
First it was cute little Zorua before Reshiram turned up and stamped all over him. Next it was Gothitelle (a goth Pokémon! Brilliant!) but then we played through the game and our choices changed again.
Currently our favourites include Vanilluxe, Tepig and Eelektrik but enough about us. Who are your favourite new Pokémon? Pokémon fan and ONM moderator Chained Teapot asked Pokémon fans to list their top five on the Pokémon forum and it was amazing to see the variety of Pokémon chosen. Anyway, he counted up the votes and here are the results. Your top six new Pokemon.
Six because that's the size of a team in Pokémon games and because the number five position was shared between two Pokémon. Take a look and let us know if your favourite Pokemon made it.
We say: It's not a surprise to see Emolga listed as one of your favourite new Pokémon. After all, it shares characteristics with Pikachu, perhaps the most recognisable Pokémon of all time. Like Pikachu, Emolga can store electricity on the electric sacs located on its cheeks which it releases when threatened. This flying squirelly creature is cute, too.
You say: "Who doesn't think Emolga is both cute AND awesome?" - Tamzily01
We say: Along with Zorua, this was the first new Pokémon to be revealed for Black and White. We remember the reaction to Zoroark being (mostly) positive and it's good to see that it still remains popular to this day. While Zorua is a cute Tricky Fox, Zoroark is a Monster Fox and is considered cool enough to be the main star of the latest Pokémon film - Zoroark: Master Of Illusion
You say: "Illusion. Enough said." - Vianyte
We say: Braviary is one of the best looking birds of any Generation. This eagle Pokemon knows wind based moves and aerial attacks like many other birds but it's very strong and with its colourful feathers it stands out from the rest.
You say: "None of my choices are as cool As Raichu.... Well maybe excluding Braviary." - RaidingRaichu
We say: Many people aren't fans of Snivy for some reason. Maybe it's his name (some fans preferred his Japanese name: Tsutarja) or perhaps it's the smug grin he sports on his face. Whatever, not many people would dispute that choosing Snivy as a Starter is all worth it in the end for its awesome final evolution. This Regal Pokemon is still a smug beggar though - we understand that it doesn't take most opponents seriously unless its foe is very powerful.
