In this PEC we will decide which mascot is the best!
Here are your choices:
Quote:
{blastoise} - The powerful water mascot of Blue!
{charizard} - The mighty fire mascot of Red and FireRed!
{pikachu} - The shocking electric mascot of Yellow!
{lugia} - The disputed dragon mascot of Silver and SoulSilver!
{ho-oh} - The majestic flying mascot of Gold and HeartGold!
{suicune} - One of the speedy three! Mascot of Crystal!
{groudon} - The firey "quaking" mascot of Ruby!
{kyogre} - The flooding mascot of Sapphire!
{rayquaza} - The mean, green, fighting machine of a mascot! This dragon is mascot of Emerald!
{venusaur} - This is the mascot LeafGreen. (It doesn't deserve an intro. I don't like it.)
{palkia} - The "everywhere, but nowhere" water dragon mascot of Pearl!
{dialga} - The everlasting steel dragon mascot of Diamond!
{giratina} - The shadowy dragon mascot of Platinum!
Image - The dark ideal dragon mascot of White!
Image - The light truthful dragon mascot of Black!
Image - The unofficial icy dragon mascot of the unofficial Gray!

Only 1 vote per day.
Give a reason why you chose the winner.
You can't vote for a pokemon more than three times per round. (For instance, if you vote for Kyurem three times in one round, you'll have to wait for the next round to vote for that pokemon again.)
Rounds last for one week.
Let round one begin...
...
...
...
NOW!!!

Lugia is very sleek and an all time fav for me / Kyurem's design looks very demented- its wings don't really look like wings, and its arms are very small. Heck, now that I think of it, it looks like a T-rex with random wings. Oh and it's not really 100% official that it will be the mascot, but I'm pretty sure it will be though

Edit: icons for the three other pokes for everyone!

I've always liked Palkia, since it came out.
Never liked Venusaur, never will.

While I'm surprised this hasn't happened before now (to my knowledge), I have a mixed bag about this PEC. According to the rules, there can only be two active at one time. Now, depending on the definition of active (in the rules), this won't be a problem. BUT, there is already War of the Dragons, AND another one started by sumo12345. Now, that one has not been posted in for a long time, specifically by the creator, so if that qualifies it as inactive, we shouldn't have a problem. But if it is, then this PEC can't go for now. Just a thought.

As to the topic at hand, and weeding these Pokemon down, I will be firm in my stance against voting for Kyurem either way because it is not official who the mascot is of the (still-unnamed) third Pokemon game of Gen V.

On to the show, with plenty of good choices. There are reasons I approve of all these Pokemon, but reasons I also don't, because I can't decide on anything! :roll:

{blastoise} up / {palkia} down

Blastoise was my first-ever Starter (love those nostalgic memories, don't you?), and by far my favorite of Kanto (Charizard was great, but too popular for my tastes, Venusaur was a little underrated but I never had a chance to get it myself). Palkia is, to quote Frost's rankings a little, a giant phallic symbol that is simply an uber-version of Kingdra. While it's better than Kingdra, I still regret that they couldn't find a better typing for it, and making such easy jokes possible.

[And just to point out the full irony of this post, I should say that my brother originally owned Blue, and I only have Pearl from Gen IV thus far... Long story short, we traded, so I considered Red my first Pokemon game. Yes, his starter was Charmander.]

AEPMT ;) 8-) :mrgreen:

Un-Happy Chinese New Year to everyone. Huzzah.
@Shuckle-rock$: While it's not encouraged to comment about other people's vote, being the PokeNerd that I am I want to say that Kyurem is very much meant to have an awkward, demented look. In some of the artworks you can clearly see its unbalanced wings, asymmetrical face, and plain weird body pose - aside from the "clues" in Black/White, I believe the true purpose for its appearance will be revealed in the upcoming movie and the upcoming Gray version.
"But SL, that doesn't explain anything! Isn't Kyurem 'sposed to represent balance between Zekrom and Reshiram?"
That's the point! Kyurem was to represent balance, but it was torn between people's different ideals and became a mindless demented corpse!

ANYWAYS...
Kyogre {kyogre} / Blastoise {blastoise}
- I LOVE Kyogre. It has a majestic design - partly based on an orca, one of my fav aquatic animals - yet unique from the super-complex Dragons in later gens. Drizzle brings rain, arguably the best weather around. It has a wide selection of moves to totally trump Groudon and sweep anything. Last but not least - My very first Pokemon game is Sapphire.
- Nay...I never really liked Water starters until Samurott. I especially hate that big fat mechanical turtle. Not to mention that Kanto already have much Water-types to use. But even as a hater I must admit it is pretty good for a solo run.

Reshiram/ {pikachu}
Reshiram is amazing in type standards and also, as Jack Nickelson's character from 'A Few Good Men' states, "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!". Pikachu ends up getting eaten by Reshiram. ****ing mouse.

Because I love {lugia}'s song and his movie is the first Pokemon movie that I have watched.
Kyurem...he looks like an old man and should have retired from his career...no offense.

{dialga} / {palkia}
It disturbs me with the uneveness of mascots in gens 3 & 4. So I am going to even out the fourth. On that note, I really hope Kyogre and Groundon don't make it as the final pokemon in this PEC. I don't have a favorite between them.

{blastoise} / {venusaur}
Venusaur, me no likey. It is the most horrible starter I know after {totodile}.
Blastoise is on Blue, which is my first Pokemon game that I owned, since my brother technically gave me Red. It is also my favorite pokemon. Venusaur is also very ugly.
Since I have voted for Venusaur three times, I can't vote for it again.

Ok since my last vote on Venusaur was my second...
{pikachu} / {venusaur}
Pikachu is the mascot for one reason and one reason only; It was the first Pokemon to be created. Therefore, Venusaur should be #004 in the National Dex. But its not. Fail.

Can you really vote more than once? If so:
{lugia} / Image
Same reasons

*****NOT A VOTE*****
Yeah you can vote more than once, however, you can only vote once per day and you can't vote more for one pokemon for more than three times (whether it is a boot two times and an immunity once) per round. And also, (sorry about this, but I'm going to use you as an example) if you make the same vote like you just did, you better give one **** of a reason (i.e.: A reason related to STAB, Stats, or trivia) as of why. I'll accept it now, since you didn't know. But if anyone does this again, I will not accept it.

P.S. s-r, you can't vote for Kyurem or Lugia for the remainder of this round.


Scoreboard:
{blastoise}: 2/1
{charizard}: 0/0
{pikachu}: 1/3
{lugia}: 3/0
{ho-oh}: 0/0
{suicene}: 0/0
{groudon}: 0/0
{kyogre}: 1/0
{rayquaza}: 0/0
{venusaur}: 0/4
{palkia}: 1/2
{dialga}: 1/0
{giratina}: 1/0
Zekrom: 0/0
Reshiram: 2/0
Kyurem: 0/3


Round one ends in two days!

Actually, just because Pikachu is the mascot, that doesn't automatically mean that it was the first Pokémon to be created. In-depth studies show that the first Pokémon to be created was most likely Rhydon. And even if Pikachu was the first Pokémon created, they wouldn't put it first in the Pokédex. Do you really think that they created each of the Pokémon in the order like that? :roll:

Well I know that they wouldn't do it that way, I'm just saying... I mean... OK! I just needed a reason of why I voted Pika up and venusaur down!

So we can vote more than once per round, no mods have complain yet, thus...
ShinyLucario used REVERSAL!

Venusaur {venusaur} / Pikachu {pikachu}
- Venusaur isn't the best out of Kanto starters. It still isn't the best out of Grass-type starters. Buuuut I'm saving it because I like Grass-types. And maybe because the Rafflesia is an important national regional symbol (at least for me).
- Pika's decent, but...WAY too overused. Now most of the time I'm just sick seeing it (I don't really hate it though). Imo I'll just go with Raichu. Believe me, I had this Pikachu who's almost helpless before meeting a Thunder Stone (and becoming a sweeper afterwards).

{ditto} on this one.


Up {venusaur} : Good old Herbert served me well in my FireRed Nuzlocke
Down {pikachu} : And besides all the normal reasons why Pikachu should die, is that one just killed Carolina the Budew. Rest in peace, little friend. :cry:

Well, that changes things... I can vote more than once in a round... ( :ugeek: )

In that case, I will add another vote into the mix.

{rayquaza} up / {groudon} down

Rayquaza looks spectacular, especially when it's shiny, and since I have a "mediator" personality, its backstory appeals to me... And while it is not fair, Groudon actually being one of my favorites to use, I think its typing is absolutely horrible, since it doesn't get STAB on the Fire-type moves that I have on it... And Kyogre wipes the floor with it, and that is perhaps the most one-sided Legendary battle (between mascots) of any Gen... Sorry Groudon.

AEPMT ;) 8-) :mrgreen:

Sorry AEP, but I can't count your vote. Round 1 ended on twist's vote. Pikachu died. Venusaur lived. But it is my guess it is the next to go.
Reset all scores except pika's and begin Round 2 right about...

Lugia gets immunity for this round. Pikachu takes an arrow to the knee and a missile TO THE FACE!!! Then, I kill it on MoH with a headshot. First death is always hard to get through. But I had fun typing that, so that statement is a FAIL!!!

Im voting for Groudon this time, not just for its cool looks, but for its Ruby game. The only two pokemon games I play these days is Ruby and Firered, and my main file is on FR, so I do a lot of play throughs on Ruby. Oh and Groudon is pretty useful in Uber battling / Again, don't really like its looks. Also, I'm now pretty sure it will be the mascot of Gray/Grey, so I'm not voting for that reason
