    Default Things That Make You Happy!

    You know the thread "Things that grinds your gears"? Well, with the approval of Hydrohs (I asked him) I decided to make a new thread.

    The only rule of this thread is to talk about things you love about the Pokémon franchise. You can also be negative as long as it's not the main subject of your post. Of course the official rules still apply.

    So anyway without further ado let's begin.

    I'll start.

    Floatzel is what makes me happy since it's my favorite Pokémon, I love its design, its speed and I use it in battles a lot.

    Whenever I encounter a shiny, I get a lot of hype, get really happy and obviously, I catch it. Probably the biggest thing that makes me happy.

    Main reason: They are so rare, with a base chance of 1/4096 to appear in Gen 6, previous was 1/8192

    Ghosts.

    I freaking love Ghosts. With every generation I sit in great anticipation for what new kinds of Ghost pokemon we'll have. So far, I've never disliked a Ghost-type, though I will say my liking for Golurk isn't that high.

    It's based on Jewish folklore, though, which is cool.

    Finding a shiny Pokémon, the odds of encountering one may have dropped in Gen 6 but it is still a special occasion when you do find one. Also Dragon-types, they are easily one of my favourite types and it is exciting to see what concepts are thought up in a new generation (one highlight of Gen 6 was the seadragon inspired Dragalge).

    If you could make a top 5 list of favorite ghost-types would you do it?

    Because I'm curious about how it'd turn out.

    Yeah, I'll agree there. I have a good number of shiny Pokemon, some from trades and some from the Pokeradar, but I always like getting a dumb luck one. Even that Pikachu in XY despite the fact I had the shiny Pichu event from 4th gen. (I think I may have been one of the first people to get a six gen shiny actually...)

    The music is another one. Some tunes just are really enjoyable to listen to imo.

    Recently, I was really happy because of those new Pokémon-themed... well, themes for 3DS. I was super hyped when I saw that one of them was Eeveelutions themed! I love Eeveelutions, so I bought the theme as soon as it was possible and now my 3DS is super pretty ♥ I've also liked previous and other new Pokémon themes, especially that BW/BW2 themed one which I've bought as well.

    Lots of things about Pokemon make me happy.

    - Weavile. It's my favourite Pokemon and I ALWAYS have an IV bred and EV trained one in my in-game teams.
    - The character designs. I've yet to see a design, both human and Pokemon, that I truly dislike.
    - Whenever I catch a shiny Pokemon.
    - When opponents in the Battle Maison make their Pokemon use Explosion on the first turn when I use Mat Block, when they blow up randomly, or they blow up when they're burned and do no damage at all.
    - Opponents in the Battle Maison burning their OWN Pokemon with Will-o-wisp. I hope that's one thing GameFreak don't fix.
    - When I hatch a Pokemon with the desired IVs, nature and ability I want.
    - Being able to nickname my Pokemon, although I would like the character limit to be increased again. I still find 12 characters too short, 15 would be ideal for me.

    There are more but these are the things that make me happiest right now.

    Well, I recently have completed a team of shinies consisting only of my favorite Pokémon or my favorite looking shinies:
    Hawlucha (favorite Pokémon)
    Slowpoke (favorite Pokémon)
    Durant (favorite Pokémon)
    Scizor (favorite shiny)
    Steelix (favorite shiny)
    Masquerain (favorite shiny)

    Silly Pokémon also make me very happy. Sudowoodo because I once saw it standing perfectly still, pretending to be a tree amongst a horde of Trevenant. I laughed really hard for about ten minutes. Kricketune because it's cry still makes me laugh. Wobbuffet because of the way it acts on the anime.

    I also have a love for Water and Steel types. Most of their designs make me happy.

    I HAVE DIANCIE, POKEBANK CELEBI, AND SOME SHINIES FOR TRADE.

    THE LIST MAY BE UPDATED FROM TIME TO TIME.
    PM IF INTERESTED.

    Every time I send out my shiny Salamence and Skarmory. That animation always males me smile cuz I'm like, hey, look at my pokemon, they're better than yours!

    Also, whenever one of my pokemon looks back at me due to having high affection in amie. It just makes everythong in the game so much more realistic and like the anime, and it adds to the whole "bonding" thing that the games want you to feel. I get a little too emotionally attached to my teams.
    I didn't lose it, we were just playing a spontaneous game of hide seek. Honest.

    Great thread idea!

    Skitty's animation. The first time I saw it on X, I squealed in delight. It is just so damn cutteeeeee, whoever designed it captured it perfectly

    Pokemon amie, a lot of the interactions are very cute. (Cacnea is adorable)

    Crushing others in online battles. Winning can give me such strong and long highs, specially when it's a really tight match and I come through with 1 last pokemon when I already resigned to losing because things just look so bad. (it happened yesterday, my Ambipom came in and saved the day and I felt so amazing when I won)

    There's numerous things about Pokemon that make me happy I would be here all day putting every last thing down.
    Here's a couple I will mention.

    1.) Watching episodes and movies that feature some of my favorite Pokemon in them, even if they're only in one part briefly, it makes me happy seeing them.

    2.) I'm not a dedicated shiny hunter like others, so despite the odds of finding them being increased this gen, finding shinies is always a rewarding experience for me, no matter how useless of a Pokemon it may be to me.



    Claimed by me!

    Definitely the music.

    It's always mood-setting and I feel good whenever I listen to it, even if its melancholic.


    Also, Drfiloon, Surskit, and Lanturn's animations in Poké-Amie. They're just so adorable its uplifting.

    You know what? I love Marlon.

    That dude is a mighty fine example of how well character development can be for Pokémon. He's not a one-dimensional, left or right-side character, like most folks in the games. He has a full-on personality that is acknowledged even by the in-game people. I love how calm yet goofy he is, and I love his mellow outlook on life. I especially love how he just pauses and walks off after talking, no matter the situation. It's so hilarious!

    He's the 8th gym leader in Black 2 and White 2. His gym is in Humilau City and his Pokémon are Water-type.

    Now, coming up with something other than shiny Pokémon (it's too obvious!). Another thing that makes me happy is beating Lisia in the Master Rank Beauty Contest with Kyogre.

    Dragon types make me happy cause they are my favorite. Having a whole box of shiny pokemon in White 2, Y and Alpha Sapphire makes me pretty happy. Catching a shiny Bagon made me happy. Having a whole box of hidden ability pokemon in Y is also good.
    Currently playing Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Awaiting the next Kalos games and pokemon movie.

    Currently own: All gen 4, 5 and 6 main series games.

    Feel free to check out my hilarious signature!

    I love X and Y a lot. I love it how you can customize your Trainer with different clothes, and care for your Pokemon with Pokemon Amie. It's small little things like these that makes me happy.
