'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.

Galvantula vs. Fletchling
Dunno much about either. Fletchling's a cutie.

Slowking vs. Alakazam
Psychics blech, but the Slowpoke family is legit. Even the one that looks least goofy is okay.

Samurott vs. Psyduck
I don't know what Samurott is. I know what Psyduck is: majestic.

Torterra vs. Poliwhirl
Turtles yay! Poliwhirl is okay, though.

Slowbro vs. Scizor
NOW WE'RE TALKING. I like Scizor a lot, bug/steel is a fun combo, but Slowbro is a creature with an obvious touch of the divine.

Ditto vs. Suicune
Never liked the legendary doggies. Ditto has a few things going for it, like its goofy face and the fun theory that it's a failed Mew clone.

Steelix vs. Krookodile
Dunno much about Krook but it looks neat. Steelix never really popped my peepers.

Charmander vs. Mew
Oh man, this surprises me. I used to love Mew. And as a Squirtle booster I love tearing down the Charmander family. But let's face it, other than its rarity and story significance, Mew is pretty blah. Yet another psychic-type, and a fairly weak one at that.

Galvantula vs. Fletchling

I like Fletchling a lot but the spider is actually pretty cool looking. Like if Electabuzz bit a spider and it tranformed.

Slowking vs. Alakazam

I really like Alakazam but when I thought about it again, Slowking is simply King. The doofus.

Samurott vs. Psyduck

Psyduck is one of my favorite Pokemon. He's always got headaches and is adorable. I don't understand Samurott's appeal.

Torterra vs. Poliwhirl

Poliwhirl is my favorite in the Poli-line. I definitely prefer him over Torterra. Plus the black swirl mimics an actual phenomenon where real poliwogs intestines are coiled in the same way and you can see them through their bodies. Look it up.

Slowbro vs. Scizor

Slowbro having a Cloyster on his tail is pretty unique.

Ditto vs. Suicune

Funky and unique Pokemon. Great for breeding. I don't know how to pronounce Suicune and I don't like trying lol.

Steelix vs. Krookodile

Looks like a bastard. For some reason it's a cool look.

Charmander vs. Mew

I had every intention of going Mew here but I think I want to give Charmander the vote. He's adorable and has a flame tail. I remember him from the Anime and it's a touching tale.

Really guys? Fletchling? It's just a bird. My cat could come up with that.



Electric spider. Much more imaginative.

@nate38 Woah you copied me exactly? What are the odds?!





... 1/256. Except not really since this isn't random.

I almost voted for Galvantula despite being terrified of spiders because I think it looks neat, but then Shadowlink posted that picture and I couldn't bear to think of spiders any longer.

Slowking v Alakazam is tough since they're two of my favorite Pokemon. I went with Slowking because he just might by my absolute favorite.

@Hero_Of_Hyrule

Oops.


...And you negated almost my entire vote! Except for Suicune. Terrible.

SPIDERS FOR ALL.

Galvantula vs. Fletchling - Tim's disgusting spider picture forced me to vote the other way
Slowking vs. Alakazam - Cool hat!
Samurott vs. Psyduck - Psyyyyy...PSYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Torterra vs. Poliwhirl - I got a free stuffed one from Burger King

Slowbro vs. Scizor - he's like a Space Pirate+
Ditto vs. Suicune - like gum under a table
Steelix vs. Krookodile - Like a Rock..
Charmander vs. Mew - Mew, like Mewtwo -- load city

@Shadowlink

Seriously, dude, I thought that voting for "just a bird" was for the birds (like voting for Chespin), but your picture is disgusting. You caused two votes against you, legit.

@DrFinkelstein

I always say (in my head) "soo-IH-soon." Probably wrong.

@Mop it up

If you had voted in the last one, how would you have voted?

Is there a tie that needs to be broken? I didn't submit anything either, didn't even see it (been off of NW since Friday).

@Mr_Mustache

Sigh. You goons.


I need to do what is normally done- Take Zero's germ of an idea and make it infinitely better.

Top 10 Video Game Spiders.

BEST LIST.

Galvantula vs. Fletchling - Not a huge fan of the electric spider, but I like the idea of the starting bird being part fire.
Slowking vs. Alakazam - Not sure why I prefer Alakazam.
Samurott vs. Psyduck - Not a big fan of either, but my preference is for the starter.
Torterra vs. Poliwhirl - See Samurott reasoning, though I do kind of like Torterra.

Slowbro vs. Scizor - See Alakazam reasoning.
Ditto vs. Suicune - I would normally defer to the legendary, but I've never been a big Suicune fan, and I do like Ditto.
Steelix vs. Krookodile - I've just never been a fan of Krookodile. Maybe it's because I skipped Gen 5.
Charmander vs. Mew - The first big "secret" I probably ever encountered in gaming (Mario 3 whistles notwithstanding), so I have to give it to Mew.
