Why does the coolest regional bird have to suck the most? It's not fair.
if there's a regional bird in Johto it's fucking Pidgey and/or Spearow again. Or maybe Natu since it exemplifies several things about Johto newcomers; cool/cute-looking with a wild colour scheme, is pretty rare and out of the way in terms of how to find one, and is mediocre in battle.
you know what I don't like about this thing? It's just a fucking owl. That's it. They drew a real life owl and made it cartoony. Seriously, it looks like someone took my mom's owl and put it in the game.
Older pokemon actually had personalities to them. They had quirks that separated them from actual animals. This thing? It's. Just. AN. OWL
Noctowl is arguably the most badass bird, but I prefer Hoothoot, however the fact there is a Hoothoot and a Ho-oh always made me reeeee ever since gen 2
he's only the second coolest. the coolest is pretty good.
For what its worth, Ho-oh's name should be houou, but murrikans cant pronounce that.
They should've took Noctowl, and since its part-flying, made it more bird-like. Like a cross between owls and birds
noctowl really is a cuck.
>pidgeot gets a mega
>swellow gets boomburst and is one of the many guts facade abusers
>staraptor has a great movepool in CC, Brave Bird, plus it probably has the best stats of any of them
>talonflame is, well, talonflame
hmm, yeah. really sucks noctowl is the WORST -
oh, that's fucking right, unfezant, probably the shittiest bird in the entire series exists.
fuck off noctowlfags, your shitty little designed owl has nothing on unfezant, plus you have a fucking platter of gold handed to you by memers, retards, and "oh haha betcha forgot this pokemon" thread makers, compared to what the actual coolest bird gets
As a rule I'm not in favour an wasting megas on pokes that haven't used up their third forms yet.
Instead I'd just invent a refined dusk stone or something that that let it evolve into a flying ghost type.
