Agreed. I couldn't even use the pokemon hints (except of Pikachu, Geodude, Machop and Muk). Though, I just went through each pokemon i knew to get these types.

i agree with chris (sorta). The original 150 were the best but i liked some of the second gen too. I think they made too many though and should have just eliminated or changed some if they wanted to add different ones. Like Chansey is dumb and could have gone 'extinct' to make room for something better. Magneton and Dugtrio are also dumb since they are basically just three Magnemites or Digletts combined, so I don't get where the 'evolution' happens.

level 49
Apr 30, 2013
I think the first 386 (the first three generations) were all great. 4th generation pushed the envelope quite a bit, and 5th generation was just a bad idea. The games still rock, though.

level 57
Jul 21, 2013
I don't understand why people hate on 4th and 5th gen so much, some without even playing the games. The Pokemon have become FAR more imaginative since some of Gen 1's *cough* Voltorb *cough* I do love Gen 1 though, as I love all the gens

What I can't get over is that there is a pokemon named after, and designed from an ice cream cone haha

Now there are at least three pokemon cats, each one normal-type and with one evolution. I think 4th gen and following showed less creativity.

@Geoboy Lawl, except AFTER Gen4 we got a dark cat line (Gen5's Purrloin/Liepard) and a psychic cat line (Gen6's Espurr/Meowstic). Gens 5 and 6 introduced some of the best of the entire series. People get so hung up on the vanillite line, but don't take into account that the creators also must appeal to all kids and all genders, not just the veteran players. And let's talk about the atrocities of gen 1: voltorb/electrode, muke/grimer, lickitung, cloyster... all Generations have their ups and downs.

@NamedMan 5th gen was just straight up terrible, knowing you, that is probably the very first one you played. You see, the rest of us grew up on it. It was our childhood. Originals are always better than sequels, especially if there's like 5 or 6 more.
+2
level 46
Nov 28, 2017
@jakobbbbb if you forgot than the Klink, Trubbish and Vanillite lines exsisted, you would probably think it was the best generation ever, guaranteed.

Jun 11, 2018
@Jakobbbbb Also, you just said that the only reason people would like Gen 5 is if it was their first game (implying it was part of their childhood), and then proceed to talk about how the other game were apart of YOUR childhood and that somehow makes them better.

You mean 151?

Apr 30, 2013
Steel and dark types didn't even exist for the first 151*, so the quiz wouldn't work...
+1

Apr 30, 2013
Except for Magnemite and Magneton for steel (although in versions Green, Red, Blue, and Yellow, they were only electric, so you're not entirely wrong).
+1

Oct 21, 2014
Steel types did, it was only dark types that didn't exist until 2nd gen. And fairy debuted in X and Y, and I refuse to recognize fairy as a true pokemon type.
+4
level 68
Oct 30, 2014
No, lolrobbielol is right. There were Pokemon in generation 1 that were later given the steel type, but the steel type itself did not exist until generation 2.
+1
level 15
Feb 16, 2017
Because pokemon were only single typed until the re-release
+3
level 68
Oct 23, 2018
Not true. Dual types always existed, they just retconned a few new ones as time went on, usually when they introduced new types. That was the problem with Ghost types in Generation 1: they were supposed to be the counter to Psychic types, but the only Ghost-type Pokemon were Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar, all of whom were Ghost/Poison dual types (and since Poison is weak to Psychic for... some reason, that meant they were ineffective counters for Psychic Pokemon).

Yes, because the generation withe the basic bird, the rat, the upside down pokeball, the rock, the sludge, the blob, the mole with no body who evolved into three moles with no bodies, the bird with two heads who evolved into a bird with three head and the magnet who multiplied by 3 was the best gen. Vanniluxe wasn't just based off of an ice cream cone, he was also based off of a snow machine
+6
level 53
Feb 17, 2016
yes because round ball, and upside down round ball were much better than 3 headed dragon, or flying genies

People only like all the originals better because of nostalgia, there are plenty of bad ideas in there like every other gen. There's literally a standard looking snake whose name is ekans, which is just 'snake' spelt backwards. There's a pile of purple goo with eyes called Muk. There's a seal called Seel etc.

Why? Gen 2-6 were all just as good. Is it because of nostalgia that you have this paradigm? If so, you must stop this kind of "old times, best times" mentality because it can ultimately lead to catastrophe for you and everyone around you.

You should make the answers "Pure" types. Skarmory is a Flying/Steel type. It would have made more sense to put Mawile or Klink since they are both pure steel types. Just a thought. :-)

I never touched a Pokémon or watched anything to do with them. I do know they battle each other, so I just threw a bunch of elements I thought might come into play. Surprisingly, I was only able to get 6 in this fashion. Bug, Grass, and Normal, for instance, do not immediately spring to mind when you ask the question "what would be useful in a fight".

Its a good quiz, but there are dual types that can make it confusing. For example; Skamory is a dual flying and steel type so it is quite confusing. Geodude is a ground-rock type Good quiz though, If you like this quiz try my pokemon anagrams quiz
