Aha, I'd give it a /610! Not a great movepool, but looks cool and has a unique typing.

Next, rate Unfezant! :unfezantf:

2/10. Yeah. I'm not a fan of Unfeazant. It's the worst version of an early bird Pokemon. It has a poor movepool, bad stats, and is just boring design wise. The only interesting thing about its line is that Tranquill's shiny is neon green for some weird reason.

How about Falinks? :falinks:

5/10 for Falinks. At least it's unique, I suppose, but it's just a little bit too strange in my opinion. I'm also still mad it's not Bug-type since its sprite looks like a Wurmple with the colors backwards.

Hmm...okay, rate Wurmple :wurmple: !

6/10. On it's own, Wurmple is extremely boring, but add in the pure randomness of its evolution into Casc/Silcoon, and the pretty cool Beautifly and Dustox, Wurmple becomes much more interesting.

The RNG gave me 211, so whaddya think about Qwilfish? :qwilfish:

8/10. Criminally underrated in my opinion! It has a cool design and can actually hold its own in competitive battling too!

How about Beartic? :beartic:

6/10 I like Beartic. It's a bit of a generic design. Polar Bear with icy beard. Cubchoo has a super cute and much more interesting design, imo, but Beartic is pretty cool. Definitely a good pure ice type.

Let's stay with the ice types

How about Eiscue? :eiscue:

4/10 Sadly I don't find much to love about Eiscue. Its design isn't particularly appealing in my opinion and its gimmick usually crosses the line into being plain annoying. Especially when battling against it.

What do you think of Registeel :registeel: ?

5/10. It has a decent design, a cool cry, butbits just average overall. Decent speed and Attack, nutnirs outclassed by so many other Normal/Flying types, even back in Gen 1.

How about :tropius: Tropius?

8/10. I love Skarmory. Cool name, great design, and interesting and exclusive Typing for 5 Generations. One of the best Defensive walks out there that can utilize Brave Bird really well.

Let's keep up the birdos with Articuno :articuno:

6/10 I remember having like a single day when I was a kid where I was positively mesmerized by Articuno. After that, I’ve just thought he’s kind of dopey for a legend.

Keeping up with the birds, how bout Staravia :staravia:?

I give it a 6/10. Not the worst bird, not my favorite. One time I got a shiny on in Pokémon X.

How about :pineco: Pineco?

8/10. A basic pokemon, but a basic pokemon done well. And Brock's Pineco in the anime is adorable. Happiest little homb in the world.

How about :ferroseed: Ferroseed?

5/10

Ferroseed's in a weird spot for me. I really have no strong views on this thing one way or the other at all. It's kind of a pain in competitive battling and I wish it had a more useful level-up moveset, but its typing is fun and its design isn't bad.

Banette :banette: ?

7/10. A pretty cool looking ghost type, and a good Eviolite user thanks to Dusknoir's creation. It has a really bold shiny, too.

How about a new spoopy ghost, Runerigus?:runerigus:

5/10 Runerigus looks cool and feels like a more natural evolution to Yamask than Cofagrigus, but IDK Cofagrigus was a proper Unova classic and I don't really like the idea of erasing it from the game in favor of the new guy.

Keeping with the Ghastly theme, Drifblim :drifblim: ?

8/10 I really like the Drifloon line. Drifblim has a cool design, a crazy bright yellow shiny, and some really good type coverage. I just wish it had better stats.
It has a similar problem to Copperajah. Really high HP, but crap defenses.

I guess its Halloween in May so how about Jellicent? :jellicent: :jellicentf: ?

8/10. I didn't know what to think of them at first when BW came out, but after playing B2W2 and having them on my team, I grew to like them. It has nice resistances and makes for a good special wall. I wish it had a little more offensive presence, though.

Keeping with the ghost theme: :lunala:
