It's been over 10 years since I first saw Rotom on Serebii and thought it was the coolest Pokemon ever made. Made me sad that it was post game only in DP, but I was so happy when I finally caught it for the first time. It's my two favorite colors; blue and orange, and it's part electric which is my favorite type. Then platinum revealed its alternate forms and I remember being hyped as fuck for it. Gen V made them even better by changing each forms type while still keeping electric. Rotom becoming the pokedex in SM is really cool because one of my all time favorites can actually speak. Rotom is amazing.
My first game was Pokemon Gold. I chose Totodile because crocodiles/alligators are cool as fuck. He was the only one I used for the majority of the game, where I only made an actual team after losing to Red the first time. It made me really happy seeing my Croconaw evolve into Feraligatr after beating Whitney. That Feraligatr was the first Pokemon I ever leveled to 100. In short, Feraligatr is to me as genwunner's are to Charizard.
The main reason why I like Dragonite is that it's cute and friendly while also being really strong. I always have fun using Dragonite in battle, especially when it's Hidden Ability was revealed. That episode in the anime where it was giant and in silhouette was really cool.
