I would of thought Ponyta to be your favorite.
I have never really played past second generation, and I don't really like many of the pokés after crystal anyway, but I'll have to say that my favourite pokemon, in order, would be:
Yes, they're pretty noob, but I kinda like how awesome they all are. And anyway, I haven't really had much experience with using any other pokemon, I'm kinda limited in my experience haha!
P.S. First post
I mean they are pretty noob in the sense that they are all incredibly powerful and likely to be many people's favourites. And I have tried to love the 'Karp, it doesn't go well for me though. Gyarados or nothing for me, I'm afraid.
Actually, the only one of those Pokes that are notably powerful these days is Mewtwo. Magikarp jokes aside, Gyarados also contends as being pretty strong, but definitely not to the point of being scrubbish. If ya like the Pokes because of their aesthetics and whatnot, it ain't n00bish just because they're coincidentally strong IMO.
