Pokemon Battledome: Who do you choose!

Happy Tuesday Novas! Today will be a discussion post on you guessed it, Pokemon! For today’s post I wanted to ask other gamers which 3 Pokemon would they take into battle. This can be from any generation. Personally, I would take Charmander, Combusken, and Dratini because they are my favorites. Battle wise, I could be countered easily as 2 of my choices are fire types (but that’s only if my opponent knows who I am using bwahahaha).

Let’s set the scene: You are summoned to a battle arena for a tournament, but the details are vague. The only requirement is for you to bring 3 Pokemon to battle with… WHO DO YOU CHOOSE and WHY?

Luna- Aside from my answer above, I would probably really bring Machop, Haunter and Combusken.  imageedit_2_2981487739  I feel as though, that’s a pretty good mix of characters and types to have with you in a blind battle and they are some of my favorites. Let’s check in with some of our friends to see who they are bringing to the rumble!

Mikey – My coworker Mikey prides himself on being a competitive Pokemon Player! He’s so crazy about it that he wanted more details on the rules and who he would face (type, tier level, etc). I again approached him with the description above on this post lol. After many changes he finally decided on 3…Here’s his response…

I would select Whimsacott, Slowbro and Megametagross. imageedit_4_3530078019  Whimsacott is the Lead setup against opponents and fastest taunter. Slowbro will be my defensive specialist tank that can take hits and output damage. Megametagross is my priority sweeper who hits hard and great has a finisher! 

Erick: My co-worker Erickkkkkk who is another self proclaimed Pokemon master, selected Chimchar, Espeon and Blastoise as his partners in crime. imageedit_6_8096274036

Chimchar because hes my personal favorite and I love him! Espeon because they are beautiful and one of the most powerful special attackers and Blastoise because… well because NOSTALGIA!!!!

Rare: My homie from PS4 chimed in with his top picks for a Pokemon Battle as well!

I’d choose Dragonite because he’s super strong, Gengar for the strats and Dewgong because he’s crazy strong, especially against dragon types. imageedit_8_2477493524

Nathan From Hurricane Thought Process: I would choose Cubone, Squirtle & Eggsecutor because they are my all time favorites! imageedit_10_5602307796

Tim from Geek Out SouthwestDusclops because darn good defense. Haxorus because he’s only bested by Rayquayza for attactk, but her has a nicer move pool. Volcarona for Speed, Quiver Dance and great offense. imageedit_12_3001041546

Chris from Overthinker Y Rapidash, Hitmontop and Wailord because there are my favorites! imageedit_14_2215176843

NekoJonez -Absol, Alakazam and Groudon because they are my favorites. imageedit_16_8565110385

Kevin from The Mental AtticI’m one for the classics so I would choose Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno. I love those birds! imageedit_18_7600937720

You know how you have your Notable or Honorable mentions when selecting your favorites? Yea, well that doesn’t apply for my friend Emily here! She has more of an Un-Notable mention because of her answer!

Emily- I would choose Eevee because, I mean it’s Eevee!

Luna – Ok great and who else?

Emily – You don’t need anyone else, it’s Eevee!

Luna – Sooo you can’t do that?

Mikey – Yeah Emily, that’s against the “Species Clause.”

Luna – Is that a thing?

Emily – I don’t care, I would take 3 Eevees.

Luna – They’re all normal types, you have no diversity.

Emily – I’d have a pocket full of stones and no matter who is summoned, I can evolve Eevee right on the spot!

Mikey – You can’t evolve during a match -_-

Luna – Plus you can only evolve like 3 Eevee types with stones. Do you know anything about Eevee?

Emily – I mean it’s Eevee. THEY’RE CUTE!

Mikey & Me – Okay Em! lol imageedit_20_3363362111
