Jinx's Top 50 Generation 7 Pokemon

Post by Nino on Tue Jan 24, 2017 1:54 am

It's been 2 months since Pokemon Sun and Moon were released, and we've got 81 new Pokemon added to the entire Pokedex. Let's see how much I like them. Just a note: Marshadow won't be on the list since it isn't released yet.


#50

Gumshoos is pretty much your standard run-of-the-mill early-game rodent. Fittingly, its battling capabilities aren't that strong. This thing was pretty much meant for a low-tier Trick Room team, due to its low Speed and solid Attack.


#49

Pyukumuku is pretty much a bad Shuckle. As in, this thing cannot attack at all (besides Counter). It's very reliant on passive damage to do its job. It'll likely be nothing more than a meme Pokemon.


#48

Well, here's your koala Pokemon. Komala speaks for itself. It doesn't have that much to offer in battles, though it might find a use in the lower tiers, seeing as it gets Rapid Spin and can't be put to sleep.


#47

Shiinotic is basically what happens when you give Amoonguss a Fairy type and take away everything that made it a top threat in doubles. Had this thing known Rage Powder, it might see some usage. At least it has Strength Sap for some gimmicks.


#46

Who would've known that lemurs act like rugby players in the Pokemon world? Passimian's teammwork is quite fascinating. With Receiver copying the ability of a defeated ally, it can make for a nice gimmick.


#45

Necrozma continues the tradition of the third legendary being an incomplete mystery. Since it's banned from Battle Spot and it faces competition in OU, this thing likely won't get its chance to shine until it gets a new form or something. At least Prismatic Laser looks cool, if being situational in battle.


#44

Turtonator is a slow, light Reshiram. The most impressive thing that this fire turtle gets is Shell Smash, which can make it quite deadly in low-tier play. There's also Shell Trap if you're willing to let it take hits in order to deal massive damage in return.


#43

After the reign of Talonflame, the early game bird this time is a toucan. Toucannon is quite slow among the birds, and is more focused on its raw power. This thing could be useful in low-tier play with Skill Link and multi-hit moves like Bullet Seed and Rock Blast as well as Beak Blast burning anything that touches it while it's charging up.


#42

Lurantis is quite charming, with some traits that Bug-types have while only being a Grass-type. With sun up, it's able to use Solar Blade to full effect to hit anything hard, or you can have a Contrary mantis that's a slow Serperior.


#41

With an ability as strong as Dazzling, Game Freak had to make Bruxish's stats with no stat sticking out in particular. Still, with Psychic Fangs, this thing hits quite hard, especially in whatever tier it ends up in. Also huge credit for it being based on the state fish of Hawaii, the reef triggerfish.

Pyukumuku, Komala and  Bruxish' really needed 2nd stages. The other are just outclassed by in game counterparts.

#40

Minior is quite a unique Pokemon, being a meteor that can come in the 7 colors of the rainbow, and has a shell for protection from status. Its coverage is quite decent, and not to mention that it gets Shell Smash which it can set up with ease due to its defensive stance with Shields Down before it gets its health low.


#39

Crabominable is what happens when you give a yeti big meaty claws. It hits like a truck, especially with its signature move Ice Hammer, though it is quite slow and its defensive typing doesn't help. In Trick Room, however, this thing becomes a wrecking ball.


#38

Tsareena is here to take revenge on anyone who tried to make a snack on it as a Bounsweet. It's got the legs to do so, with its signature move Trop Kick lowering the Attack out of anyone who gets kicked. Also, for those tricksters that try to sneak attack it, this lady's got Queenly Majesty to prevent such tactics.


#37

Palossand is one nerve-wracking sand castle, known for sucking up Pikachus in quicksand. This thing is very sturdy, being focused on defense with its signature move Shore Up restoring a lot of health, even more in a sandstorm. Also, unless your Water-type attack is extremely powerful, it'll only get sturdier with Water Compaction.


#36

What appears to be a monster movie reject, Guzzlord is one weird Ultra Beast. With its highest stat being HP and particularly low stats everywhere else, it doesn't have any place which it truly masters in. Pretty much the main thing that stands out is a gimmicky set of Stockpile and Swallow for defensive prowess or being a slow physical watered down Hydreigon.


#35

With 4 forms, Oricorio is quite an exotic Pokemon. Being either Electric, Fire, Psychic, or Ghost, these birds have an interesting concept with various dances taken from across the globe. They can copy the dances they see with their ability Dancer, and unleash the energy in their signature move Revelation Dance, which matches the type of the dance style. With nectar being found in every flower meadow, Alolans are free to choose whatever style they want.


#34

Bewear is one fluffy bear, which can stomach a lot of physical hits thrown at it, as long as they aren't Fire-type. Having resemblance to a toy store mascot, this thing is quite silly, and at the same time very dangerous, with its hugs capable of crushing anything, and it can even walk on water and leap across skyscrapers. "What's this feeling?"


#33

Being a wolf at day and a werewolf at night, Lycanroc is no ordinary dog. Its battle style depends on the time it evolved from a Rockruff, being more aggressive and faster during the day with its signature move Accelerock or being more defensive at night with Counter. Also kudos for getting Stealth Rock as well.


#32

Comfey is one interesting supporter. Having its healing moves gain priority with Triage, it can take advantage of its signature move Floral Healing to restore the health of its partner. It's still useful on its own, with Leech Seed and priority Synthesis and Draining Kiss to stall out its foe. Also, being a lei, its fits the Hawaiian mood quite well.


#31

For being a Pokemon being based on a unique species, the bee fly, Ribombee is one charming bug. It's insanely fast in a region mostly filled with slow Pokemon, faster than even Greninja! It's got a signature move in Pollen Puff which damages foes and heals its partners. It also has Quiver Dance to make it even faster as well as make its attacks hit harder and make it able to take more special hits, and it even has Baton Pass so that someone else can sweep if needed. Its pre-evolution Cutiefly got banned from Little Cup for this reason.

Tsareena was absolutely my favorite of this generation, I took a gamble picking her for my team, but a grass type was very useful, with trop kick and high jump kick, very useful.

#30

Dhelmise is one crazy Pokemon. Having its ability Steelworker to give it triple STAB, it can hit a lot of types for at least neutral damage. It's got the bulk to tank some hits as well, and it can trap foes with its signature move Anchor Shot.


#29

Wishiwashi in its solo form is very weak, but when it calls in allies to form a school then it becomes a monstrous Pokemon. With considerable bulk as well as solid offensive power, it can make even Gyarados run for its money. It just needs its health above 25%, any lower and it'll be the weak solo form again.


#28

For a Pokemon created to be a mini-Arceus, Silvally is one versatile Pokemon. With its Memories changing type, it can pull off a variety of sets, being helped further by its balanced stats. Offensive sets would really benefit with a powerful STAB in Multi-Attack, and it can also learn Parting Shot for a more supportive option. It can even explode for massive damage.


#27

Kommo-o is more of a bulky special attacker among the pseudo-legedaries, as its physical movepool is very shallow. Between Flash Cannon, Flamethrower, Focus Blast, and its signature move Clanging Scales, it has solid special coverage. Also it's immune to Pixilate Hyper Voices, aka Hydreigon's Achilles heel.


#26

After generations of unimpressive Pikachu clones, Game Freak finally got its acts together to create one that is actually good. Having Lightning Rod to draw Electric-types away from something like Gyarados, as well as moves like Fake Out, Encore, Nuzzle, and Spiky Shield, Togedemaru one great supporter. Also it can deal some offense itself with moves like Poison Jab as well as its signature move Zing Zap.


#25

Vikavolt is one powerful Pokemon, with its Special Attack rivaling that of Chandelure. It's got some good coverage with Bug Buzz, Thunderbolt, and Energy Ball. Its only low stat is Speed, which can be easily used to its advantage with Trick Room. Also, it can't be harmed by its partner's Earthquake due to Levitate.


#24

Salazzle is one tough Pokemon, coming out of a 7:1 gender ratio pre-evolution. With Corrosion, it can poison even foes like Toxapex and Celesteela. Its stats give it the ability to become a fearsome sweeper, with moves like Nasty Plot to boost its offensive power. Plus it's a hot lizard.


#23

Toxapex is one wall of a Pokemon, having solid Defense and Special Defense as well as Regenerator to keep it healthy. It's got Haze to stop any type of setup and Toxic Spikes to wear down the opposing team. It's also got a signature move of its own in Baneful Bunker, which means that any Pokemon trying to attack it with a contact move will suffer from poison.


#22

Golisopod is one Pokemon with an interesting concept. Evolving from a literal coward, its battling capabilities are massively boosted upon evolution. It can switch out if threatened by using Emergency Exit, then it can come back in and use its signature move First Impression to smack the opponent down. It's also got a load of other priority moves like Aqua Jet and Sucker Punch to strike the opponent before they can react.


#21

Being a Dragon from Chinese folklore, Drampa is a very unique dragon. With Berserk, its attacks become even stronger as its health decreases below half. It's got a massive movepool with moves like Hyper Voice, Flamethrower, Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse, Energy Ball, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball, and even Surf. Put up Trick Room, and this Pokemon can be one dangerous sweeper.

I find all of those Pokemon great outside of Togedemaru due to fat Clemont having it as his main Pokemon.

#20

Incineroar is one manly-looking Pokemon, being based on a heel wrestler. Its fighting style is very brutal, with moves like Throat Chop as well as its signature move Darkest Lariat to bypass the foe's defenses. Its Z-Move Malicious Moonsault is quite the sight, having it crush the opponent with its flaming body.


#19

Decidueye is one impressive owl. With its signature move Spirit Shackle, it snipes the opponent with an arrow and pins it down, preventing escape. It unleashes a barrage of arrows in its Z-Move Sinister Arrow Raid, which is quite scary to be on the receiving end of.


#18

Mudsdale is one tough Pokemon, with its ability Stamina boosting Defense every time it takes an attack. It's got the bulk to take plenty of hits, and it's got impressive offense as well. With High Horsepower, it can attack a single opponent to get around Wide Guard, which can block moves like Earthquake and Rock Slide.


#17

Being Gen 7's first Mythical Pokemon, Magearna lives up to its expectations, having strong stats and being a robot maid above all that. With its Soul-Heart, it gains more power every time a Pokemon gets knocked out, which can quickly get out of control in fast-paced battles like in doubles. It's banned from Doubles OU for this reason, and it's the only Pokemon that's banned from Doubles OU but not in singles OU. On top of all that, its signature move Fleur Cannon deals an insane amount of damage at the cost of some of its power.


#16

After months of debating over which starter to get, I was on Team Popplio. Primarina was just the perfect Pokemon that evolved from the first Pokemon in my journey through Alola. Being based on a siren, a type of mermaid known to cause disaster to ships, it excels in Special Attack. With a Water/Fairy typing, it's got great firepower and bulk, and its signature move Sparkling Aria will hit everything around it for big damage. Its Z-Move Oceanic Operetta has it summon water to create a Spirit Bomb, and getting hit by that will hurt a lot, potentially even OHKO.


#15

Buzzwole is what happens when you take a mosquito and give it growth hormones. Packing a massive amount of bulk, it can stomach a lot of physical hits and retaliate hard with punches from its muscular arms. Keep it away from special attackers and battles will be nothing more than workouts for this bruiser.


#14

Xurkitree is one crazy-looking Pokemon, being a tree of electrical wires and power lines. This thing was known to raid power plants to sap a lot of electricity. With a Special Attack that beats even Mewtwo, this thing's attacks will hit like a wrecking ball. It even gets Tail Glow to outright demolish anything with its attacks. After a Tail Glow, a Gigavolt Havoc does 70% damage to Chansey!


#13

The legendary mascot of Pokemon Sun, Solgaleo, is a true beast. Having high stats overall, it will rain down destruction on anyone daring to question it. Trying to lower its stats will be worthless as it's got Full Metal Body to be unaffected. Its high Attack makes it hit like a freight train. Its signature move Sunsteel Strike even ignores any defensive abilities, meaning that unless the opponent resists it, it's gonna feel the full effects.


#12

Being the mascot of Pokemon Moon, Lunala is more on the elegant side. With Shadow Shield, it can tank one hit at full health, even attacks that would otherwise KO it. With its high Special Attack, its attacks like Psyshock will hit hard. Its signature move Moongeist Beam ignores defensive abilities, making it one fearsome sweeper.


#11

Oranguru is the absolute king of the forest when it comes to support. Its two abilities Telepathy and Inner Focus help it achieve its supporting capabilities. This ape's got a huge support movepool, with moves like After You, Taunt, Quash, Reflect, Light Screen, Safeguard, Psychic Terrain, Wonder Room, Trick Room, and its signature move Instruct that has its partner repeat its last used move. Thought one Eruption from Torkoal was strong enough, well how about two of them? This Pokemon is sure to create a strong playstyle for doubles play.

Those are some good picks. I have to say i'm a bit surprised Oranguru made it so high when it's not the beast outside of double battles though.

Re: Jinx's Top 50 Generation 7 Pokemon

Post by Nino on Sun Jan 29, 2017 1:11 am

Well, this is it, the moment you've been waiting for. We're getting real this time. This is the Top 10, the Pokemon that have impressed me the most in my adventures in Alola. With that being said, let's finish this fight!


#10

Starting off this Top 10, we have the guardian deity of Ula'Ula Island, Tapu Bulu. Being based off a bull as well as Lono, the Hawaiian god of agriculture, this is one tough Pokemon. It's got a good amount of bulk with a Defense of 115, backed up with a solid Grass/Fairy typing, allowing it to use moves like Leech Seed to great effect. It's also got a base 130 Attack, allowing it to deal a chunk of damage, especially its Grass-type moves under the Grassy Terrain that it activates with its ability. Pretty much anything defying its strength would get an Adamant Choice Band Grassy Terrain-boosted Wood Hammer to the face!


#9

Mimikyu is one of the most popular Pokemon of Generation 7, and it's not hard to see why. Being a lonely Pokemon hiding under a self-made Pikachu costume, it's been known to hex anyone seeing its true form. Being the only Ghost/Fairy type, it's got plenty of unique traits. The disguise it wears gives it a guaranteed survival on anything that tries to attack. This allows it to do things like set up Swords Dances to deal a chunk of damage with Play Rough, Shadow Claw, and priority in Shadow Sneak. This is truly one of the most feared sweepers in all of Gen 7.


#8

Being an Ultra Beast that's a cockroach with the appearance of a lady, Pheromosa is one sight to behold. This thing's able to run at insane speeds even with high heels! With a Speed of 151, it beats even Mega Mewtwo Y, and backed up with both atacking stats being 137, it will absolutely devastate anything that doesn't have the slightest amount of bulk. As if that weren't enough, it also gets Quiver Dance to become even faster and stronger. If you don't knock it out quick enough, this Pokemon will tear through your team like a hot knife through butter.


#7

Araquanid is one spider, and is it huge! It's got some impressive bulk allowing it to tank a couple of hits. Its offensive capabilities are backed up by the Water Bubble on its head, that prevents burns, halves damage from Fire-type attacks, and doubles the power of Water-type moves, all before STAB! If this thing uses Liquidation, something will be drowning. This is, by far, the most menacing thing that could possibly exist in the realm of spiders.


#6

Nihilego might be one of the most disturbing Pokemon ever to exist. Being a Rock/Poison type jellyfish, it's very out of the ordinary. With its many tentacles, it can literally turn any of its hosts into violent machines. It's got an impressive Speed of 103, backed by a remarkable Special Attack of 127, allowing it to deal a load of damage. It's also got Stealth Rock and Toxic Spikes for a lead set. No matter what, this Pokemon is dangerous to face off against, and will leave a mark out of anyone dismissing it.


#5

Celesteela is what happens when Kaguya reads too many Gundam manga. With its two rocket launchers, it can burn down entire forests! In battle, this Pokemon makes for a very sturdy tank, with high HP and defenses. With its bulk, it can use moves like Leech Seed and Wide Guard to great effect. Also it's the heaviest Pokemon ever, meaning it will often have maximum power with Heavy Slam, which is bound to flatten nearly anything. This Pokemon is something which you absoutely should have a means of breaking through it, like Alolan Marowak.


#4

Tapu Lele is the guardian deity of Akala Island, being based on a butterfly and the god Kane, and it's also a powerhouse. With 95 Speed and 130 Special Attack, it's got some big firepower, which is further boosted by the Psychic Terrain it sets with its ability. Almost nothing that doesn't resist it would like to take a Choice Specs Psychic Terrain-boosted Psychic, and with its Psychic Terrain up, glass cannons like Deoxys and Greninja are free to wreck havoc without fear of priority revenge killing them. This thing is truly one of the most nerve-wracking Pokemon that you'll face in battles.


#3

The guardian deity of Poni Island, Tapu Fini, is quite impressive, being based on a swordfish, a mermaid, and the god Kanaloa. Its role in battle is more on the supportive side, with its ability setting Misty Terrain to prevent any status to affected Pokemon, as well as having moves like Taunt, Haze, and Defog. With these moves, stall will be hard-pressed to find ways around it. This thing might just be one of the best stallbreakers out there.


#2

Kartana is awesome, taking elements from both origami and a samurai. With the edges of its body having sharpness like no other, it can cut down even skyscrapers! This thing has a solid Speed of 109, backed up by an Attack of 181, beating even Rampardos! What's more, it can boost its Attack even further by using Swords Dance and by knocking something out. If you don't stop this thing quick enough, your team will feel the most painful paper cuts they have ever felt. This Pokemon's got a solid concept, design, and battling skills.


Now then, with 49 Pokemon out of the way, none of them being my absolute favorite, what can beat them? What Pokemon really made a lasting impression in my adventures in Alola?

Good top 9 and Tapu Koku must be number 1.

So, here we are. We're at #1 now. This Pokemon gave me the most impression out of any of the Pokemon that were introduced in my adventure through Alola. Who's that Pokemon?
#1:
#1

Ever since its reveal, I knew that Tapu Koko was gonna be a great Pokemon. And good Arceus, did it shoot my expectations out of the roof! Being the Pokemon representation of Kuku'ilimoku with some features of a rooster, the Electric/Fairy guardian deity of Melemele Island outshined everything else I have come across. This is the most imposing, awesome and magnificent Pokemon that Alola has ever introduced. Should this fickle guardian choose to defend you, not a single thing will stand in your way. With a terrifying base speed of 130, it rivals even Mewtwo! It's also got the power to set up Electric Terrain by virtue of its ability, making any Electric-type move deal a huge amount of damage, and prevent sleep. It's got excellent mixed attacking stats that can put Thundurus to shame, a solid movepool with all the coverage options it needs as well as some other moves like Volt Switch, and it's capable of making its teammates a terror with the terrain. On top of its amazing design, all of these traits make it a titan among battles. I'll trust this guardian deity to perform extraordinarily whenever someone challenges me every time I use it. Tapu Koko is by far my favorite Pokemon of Generation 7. Happy 20th birthday, Pokemon, here's to many more!

The best thing about Tapu Koku is how it took a liking to the player and five them the Z ring. I also like how Tapu Koku is getting so much spotlight in the anime and his special bond with Ash is one of the few bright spots of the Sun and Moon anime.
