You know, looking at these lists, I think this is probably the best place to ask: Does anybody else get the sense that their "favourite Pokemon" almost inevitably becomes shorthand for "which generation of Pokemon did I grow up in"?

If we look at leach list, it really does feel that way. Luis and I are a bit older and our lists tend to list a lot of Gen I Pokemon, the game out while we were quite young. Then Gondolin's list is heavily a Gen III list. Which would make sense as Gondolin would have been in elementary school around the time RSE game out.

The thought crossed my mind, but I didn't really bother to pay attention to the generations as I was making the list and definitely thought I was a bit more balanced than I ended up being.
You do have it right- Sapphire was my first pokemon game.

I would say that your idea makes a lot of sense. Unless you start with Pokemon as an older person (young adult- on), I think memories of the 'good old days as a kid' would absolutely color your favorite pokemon choices. On an impressionable child, the pokemon that would leave the biggest impressions would be the ones you first encountered.


I think I'll ask my roommate to do this is well- he's the same age as me but started off with Crystal. From times we've talked about pokemon in the past, I'm pretty sure it'll mostly reflect Gen II, but we'll see.

I updated my list. I used Google to help me remember what Pokemon I liked back then. I startled with gen 1 so most of the Pokemon are from the first and second gen. Gengar was moved to poison while Gastly is now ghost. I remember liking Gastly design and used it a lot in Pokemon Stadium petite cup. Sludge Bomb was fun to use with Gengar in the battle tower so he's poison. I don't have a fairy and will never have one because the last generation I was interested in was gen 4. I still watch the anime.

There are some Pokemon retroactively listed as Fairy. Maybe they'll give you a favourite?

Marill is a weird Pokemon to be made a fairy because of it's color but I'll take it. I liked Marill design back in the gen 2 days and I use to have this.

Spoiler: show
