'Best Pokemon Ever' March Madness - Round 1C: Volcano Bracket - vote thru 3/17
 
We’re well on our way through the first round of voting. Things will certainly heat up as this time we’re in the Volcano Bracket, named for the Volcano Badge received from Cinnabar Island in the Kanto Region. This set of Pokemon includes some more unique Pokemon in my opinion. A lot of fan-favorites which got mentioned in the initial seed thread are in this bracket. In my copy of Pokemon Yellow, I just chose to glitch a Mew and use him to replace the very Abra I needed for the event. Will Mew eclipse Alakazam in the coming bracket? We shall see… (Be sure to tell us why in the comments along with your votes!)

For information on the overall polling and how these Pokemon were picked, check out the first and original poll for this March Madness Bracket found here.


Galvantula vs. Fletchling
Slowking vs. Alakazam
Samurott vs. Psyduck
Torterra vs. Poliwhirl

Slowbro vs. Scizor
Ditto vs. Suicune
Steelix vs. Krookodile
Charmander vs. Mew

Vote for the Pokemon that you think should win the matchup. Please vote on every matchup.
Please cast your votes in the following format, bolding the Pokemon that you choose to advance:

Polls are open until Thursday, March 17th, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST. Gotta vote em' all! (and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Make a Team of just green Pokemon to celebrate!)

Galvantula vs. Fletchling - Fletchling is cute, but Galvantula is an electric spider that looks awesome.
Slowking vs. Alakazam - I just love the idea behind Slowking.
Samurott vs. Psyduck - Samurott happens to be a part of my favourite started Pokemon line. Sorry Psyduck.
Torterra vs. Poliwhirl - Torterra has always grabbed me because of his unique typing

Slowbro vs. Scizor - Slowbro, similarly to Slowking, has a really cool idea behind him.
Ditto vs. Suicune - Ditto is super unique. There is no other Pokemon like him
Steelix vs. Krookodile - No real reason behind this, I just like Krookodile
Charmander vs. Mew - Gotta vote for Charmander.

@Shadowlink

But is it the most adorable Pokemon ever? No. No it is not.



Fletchling!

KILL IT! KILL IT WITH WATER!

I like to think it's a Fletchling in that pic I posted.

And I'm going to buy one of those new Pokémon games, get Galvantula, and then go on a Thundershock rampage through the wild Fletchling population. Because I can.

I don't think I've heard of Galvantula before this. Which generation is it from?
Posted: 03/17/16, 21:14:21
Galvantula vs. Fletchling
A fuzzy, electric spider is both cool and cute. It's a pretty creative Pokemon.

Slowking vs. Alakazam
I like how wise and focused Alakazam looks. Also, this fan art of the Pokemon is amazing and I want to share it.

Samurott vs. Psyduck
Samurott is very inspired, but the simple, goofy duck is quite endearing.

Torterra vs. Poliwhirl
Torterra's garden-like back is such an interesting aspect of this Pokemon. I like the contrast between its fierce and calming features.

Slowbro vs. Scizor
Scizor is just awesome. I love its sleek, aerodynamic appearance.

Ditto vs. Suicune
The "Legendary Beasts" are some of my favorite Pokemon. They all look so courageous and venerable. Suicune gets my vote because of those qualities.

Steelix vs. Krookodile
Steelix is cool. I like its intense face and the concept of its evolution.

Charmander vs. Mew
This was a tough one! I gave Charmander the slight edge because the original three starters are all so great.

@Mop it up

Gen V

It was also one of the stars of my heavily modified Bolt Twister deck during my recent lapse back into the Pokémon TCG. Nothing overly spectacular on it's own, but pairing it with my utterly monstrous Feraligatr saw that deck create utter carnage.

Nothing ruins an opponents day faster than constantly forcing him to switch active Pokémon and deal with constant confusion.


EDIT: BTW, know what's a crappy card?



Bah. Look at that attack. 'Me first'. What a git of a Pokémon.

@Mr_Mustache

A) I said I would, B) it wasn't addressed to you

Read my thoughts on Pokémon cards. That's new content.

Oh, I read it. Now I wanna play RAW DEAL.

I scanned in the Galpooptula card I got in my last booster pack, to show you, before I threw it in the trash and made an awesome deck of nothing but Fletchlings. The Fletchling deck is undefeated, because when I bring out Fletchling the opponent is like "THAT IS SO CUTE OMG" and then they give up because no one wants to hurt something that unbelievably adorable.

@J.K. Riki

A CHALLENGE.

My Bolt Twister vs your Fletchloser deck.

WE SETTLE THIS LIKE MEN. BY COMMANDING OTHER CREATURES TO MURDER EACH OTHER.

Enough posturing. Get to it.

Where is this being held?
Posted: 03/19/16, 02:38:54
In all seriousness, if JKR has the TCG client on PC, we can totally make this happen

He'd have to modify his illegal deck though. Only 4 of any one specific card allowed. I'll be happy to cull all those extra Fletchling for him.
Posted: 03/19/16, 03:13:10
Shucks, I don't have the TCG whatever. Ah well, we'll have to just make the reasonable assumption that Fletchling is the best and that just about wraps that up.

@Shadowlink

Fetch-type moves are pretty neat in Pokemon TCG! I remember liking Kangaskahn a lot for that utility.

@J.K. Riki

Haha, I like the amount of effort put in here. "Sad-face garbage Pokemon." But hey, 30x heads(??) for one electric energy is good stuff!

@J.K. Riki

Maybe you should get it then. Or forever face up to the fact that Fletchling is a coward bird
