    Swanna. I was like "Never gonna use it, just catching it for the dex entry!".

    Well, I tested one last week, what a beast, makes Pelliper look like Pellican crap!

    I always liked Cloyster, but when I used a Shell Smash one to utterly destroy my brother's team, I knew it was one of my absolute favorites!

    Today i was reading someones signature and it had a picture or Jynx and it said how it look like Nikki Monage ( can't spell it right) and now I see Jynx like Nikki M.


    Not asking just hoping for this to be an avatar,

    In-game Eelektross, definitively.
    I was planning the members for my party and I really wanted to have an Eelektross. I was just in love with it's exotic design.
    I knew it would be a hard time leveling Tynamo up, but... I was not expecting such a bad occasion to catch this pokemon.
    At that point in the game anything that Tynamo did was equal to nothing and when it finally envolved to Eelektrik it really was a lot better, but for a short time.
    I ended up releasing it and catching another pokemon to replace it. Today I don't feel nothing more for Eelektross, nor see it as having such a exotic cool design. Just exotic.
    That bad experience made me become almost indifferent to this pokemon.

    Muk.
    When I found out in Gen III I could Teach one Thunderbolt, Rock Tomb, and I can't remember what else, I nicknamed one "MK Ultra" due to the fact every one of it's attacks either damaged stats or had the potential to. Lol

    I used to think Garbodor was all-around terrible. My views on it have improved after witnessing its might and great Weak Armor ability in the Rental Tournament

    Oshawott family I though they were weak because of how they looked but then I used it as my starter in B2 and fell in love with its strength.

    I used to dislike Psyduck, until the episode in the anime where it focuses on it's headache issue. Now, I REALLY dislike it.

    Zubat, Golbat, and Crobat. In Pokemon Platinum, I used a Zubat/Golbat/Crobat through the ENTIRE game. I beat the Elite 4, and I looked at its stat page and said "met at lv.2" it never hit me how much I liked that pokemon untill I realized it helped me beat the game.

    The anime changed my views towards Meloetta. I thought Meloetta was meh, but then it showed up with that awesome voice in the anime.

    Also, when members here have avatars of Pokemon sprites, whenever I see the sprite ingame I think of that member. With two members banned with Shaymin sky forme avatars, I'm now preferring to use land forme..

    Well, I always disliked Ambipom. I thought it was a particularly hideous pokemon. But, I decided to try an experiment with it, because it seemed to suit my purposes.
    That experiment failed and I ended up disliking it more.
    However, then I modified the one I bred a little and tried it in Singles. Now I love that mutant monkey! Technician and Normal typing is a crazy good combination!

    i used to despise flareon, i thought he was the worst eeveelution, and possibly fire type, ever. But then i started to get interested in eeveelutions more, and i tried out Flareon. I realized that... he's adorable. x) maybe he's not so tough on the battlefield, but if you look past that, Flareon can be a great pokemon. and also, Flareon is now my favorite pokemon. xD

    Piplup, I used to like it but now I actually dislike it b/c of the anime esp. its awful piercing voice...>:S Also w/ Samurott, I didn't liked it at first b/c of how it doesn't resemble its pre-evolutions but I gave it a chance since it's still an Oshawott but as a badass samurai.

    I started to look differently at Castform when someone in Yahoo Answers asked whether those pair of balls under it were nuts or breasts...

    Yesterday I had a battle with someone whose pokemon were all at level 35-40 so I had to very quickly make a new team to match his pokes' levels. I definitely have a new appreciation for Deino and Pawniard. Also, I was pleasantly surprised by Audino's offensive capabilities.

    I used to think Magcargo was just meh. Interesting type, although disadvantageous. Not one of my favorites. Then I did a Battle Factory run in Emerald with one, and that thing swept EVERYTHING.
    - The whole Stallrein thing? He does it better.

    I've always liked Breloom well enough, but she (my Breloom, Ariadne) was always just sort of "There" in my team...

    ...until an online battle with some turd wherein she OHKO'd a Moltres. I've loved her ever since (consequently, after she obliterated that Moltres, the kid accused me of cheating, called me all sorts of names, and disconnected. I hate sore losers. Take it like a man!).

    Cacturne was pretty cool to me until I read its Pokedex entry. Now I can stop wondering why they are so creepy.

    Here are some I was not too insane about until I used them, saw them in action, or saw them in the show:
    Marill
    Azumarill (it saved me from Flannery in Emerald, and Huge Power made it kick behind on Black 2)
    Bulbasaur
    Venusaur
    Chikorita
    Bayleef
    Meganium
    Zigzagoon
    Linoone (again Emerald)
    Palkia, despite the obvious
    Oshawott (I still am not really fond of Ash's...)
    Sigilyph (I hated its guts because it nearly wrecked me on Black, but it has grown on me)
    Garbodor
    Vanilluxe
    Hydreigon (yes, really; I stayed away from it for a while because of Ghetsis, but after my Zweilous on Black evolved, it grew on me rapidly)
    Reshiram but I was lying to myself by saying I was more fond of Zekrom, so not really
    Zekrom (I got over it being overrated after a while but I never hated or disliked it)
    Kyurem (at first I thought it was strange, still do, but not as much)
    Keldeo (thank you M15)
    Meloetta (at first I thought it was furry bait while it is not)

    The biggest case of this for me was Chikorita. I used to not like it, and than it kind of grew on me, but was still below Totodile. And then came mystery dungeon time. I had a male Charmander as my starter and I wanted a female and Chiko was the best offered, so I used her. I absolutely fell in love with her, and think her and Charmander are so cute together. She is now far and away my second favourite starter, and finally surpassed Totodile. She's come a long way to being one of my favourites, but she made it.

    I used to despise the Tepig line, but then I decided to use it(it was the main Pokémon that helped me defeat the E4, N, Ghetsis, and Alder)and it quickly became my favorite of the gen5 starters over Snivy and it's evolutions.

    I didn't use to like Swoobat before. But a close friend of mine really loved Seooba, and swept my team with it. Now I'm in love with it as well.
