How to do you choose a favorite Pokemon, /vp/?
>>
>>24456601
It depends on how well designed it is and/or how fun is it to use.

You don't choose, it's how they appeal to you.

Togekiss was first sight love when I first saw Cynthia using him. Then loved him even more when I knew about his parahax shit. And even more when he became a Fairy type.

Speaking of parahax, my second favorite is Jirachi. Also even before I knew that bullshit ayy.

Man, that's the only legendary (mythical) I ever used in a game since it started out at a hatchling level. All the rest just went into boxes forever, but I used Jirachi against the elite four.

I never even considered using one until a random dream in 2007 where I nursed a togekiss back to health. I tried raising and using one in Diamond after that and its been my favorite ever since.

If it's not from Hoenn or Kalos I'll probably like it.

It's a matter of personal tastes and how do you react to certain species.

easy on it anon, it might be someone else's favourite you know...

I liked this one since gen one, the fact it was nearly impossible to have did not mattered, I had a spot for It in every single pokemon game I played.

needless to say that I would never be half as good as cheating as I am now without this cute little powerhouse.

Buttblasted Canadian/Brit/Australian spotted. People that learn English as a second language, learn American spelling and words, because it's the standard.

Everyone says "candy", not "sweets".
>>
>>24456601
Just look at what pokemons you always use, even if they're not *that* good, even if they are late/out of the way catches, even if you literally used one in every previous playthrough.

That's your favourite pokemon. And pic related is mine, incidentally. Which might also be why Blaziken is the only fire starter I actually like in all generations.
>>
>>24456768
> american
> standard
nope, british english is the standard, mainly because they use standard units, standard date formating and are the fucking time reference.

all my english teacher taught me american was some sort of dirty twisted version and that I should not learn english from them. too bad I did quite the opposite though.

>People that learn English as a second language, learn American spelling and words, because it's the standard.
I'm pretty sure only japs do that actually. British english is the standard worldwide.
>>
>>24456746
Megas are, ironically, the only good thing about Gen VI as far as Pokémon go.
Aside from Talonflame or Hawlucha, I can't say I'd miss anything from Kalos.
>>
>>24456735
What a coincidence.
If it's not from Kalos or Hoenn, I probably won't like it.
>>
>>24456768
nope, I'm from eastern europe, we learned british english. teacher specifically taught us to omnit americanisms

actually, only retarded country that don't understand that football is a game with a ball played with your foot need this word. I learned this word it at the age of 20 and can't seriously stop laughing when people use it. and I can't even stand the game itself.

It's "sokker", though, not "sosser".

>>24456941
I never understood that shit. I mean, it's short for association football right? Then why the fuck is it sokker? Do you also say assokiation?
>>
>>24456946
I was referring to the pronounication of "soccer". For example, "scepticism" is pronounced and written as "skepticism" in American English.

>>24456958
But that actually makes sense, since it comes from the greek skeptomai. My point is how the fuck did association become sokker.

>The object of the game is to score goals, by kicking or heading the ball into the opponents' goal. The game originated in England, and is played according to rules established by the Football Association, which has organized the major English knockout competition, the FA Cup, since 1872. The international game is administered by the International Football Federation (FIFA), which is responsible for the World Cup.

>Origin - Late 19th century: shortening of Assoc. + -er4.
>This is a shortening of Association football, the official name given in the late 19th century to the game, to distinguish it from rugby football. The word was formed by the same process that gave us rugger for rugby.

I legitimately don't care, in my country, it's pronounced "football" or rather "foot", nobody understand if you ask about soccer.
furthermore, the pronunciation is as explicit as it can be as it is written, nobody would think a nanosecond to pronounce it otherwise if ever pronounced.

also i agree, fav pokemon is something that just there. if you can't tell right away, you don't like it enough.

I rarely find myself settling on a consistent favourite but Steelix, Umbreon, Skarmory, Heracross, Furret, Mareep, Feraligatr and Noctowl are all leading the pack.

Yeah I'm a massive Johtoddler I guess.

Personal experience is the biggest part for me, I'd say. I use one in a run or against other players because I feel like it, they perform remarkably well, and then I get attached to them.

For example, my top two, Cinccino and Staraptor. Cinccino just totally wrecked everything when I used it in a run and then continued to when I started actually doing PvP after that run, and has the bonus of being adorable. Staraptor has a bit more sentimental value, it was the Pokemon that in a way got me to stop soloing the games with just my starter with Diamond, after the underleved Staravia I used just for Fly managed to save my ass in the Snowpoint Gym after Torterra got taken out. Though it took a while before I realized just how much I liked it.

I can say that British English is the taught standard here in Portugal but school lessons aren't enough to get a good grasp of the language. If you combine that with Portugal broadcasting a lot of subtitled American shows and consuming a lot of untranslated English media, then American English ends up being much more of an influence. I had to force myself to adhere to British spelling standards on my own.

On-topic: My favourites are picked by design, with the presence of specific colours and a high level of contrast being key; they also tend to be simple. Quirkiness of the Pokémon's functionality or in-game experiences with it can impact it too.
>>
>>24458784
Aye, fellow Portuguese anon. I learned English by myself and got used to the American way of things. How did you go about enforcing the international standard on yourself?
>>
>>24458799
Partly personal preference, partly Scottish BF. I still prefer some specific American words and spelling standards, though.
