    -Its cuteness factor
    -Its badassness factor
    -Its weirdness factor
    -Its rarity
    -Its type
    -Its involvement in the anime
    -Its ability's/attacks

    Thanks for your help!

    My fav 1st gen Pokemon is definitely Gengar.
    It's really badass, it has an extremely good typing plus Levitate, and a good special STAB in the form of Shadow Ball. But I hate the fact that it has to rely on Focus Miss to hit Tyranitar and Heatran.

    My favorite would be Charizard and closely followed by Mewtwo. Both qualify for the badass factor

    Eevee for the cuteness factor as well as the variety it has

    Gengar(entire line), Mew, Mewtwo, and Bulbasaur sort of share that 1st place spot because I don't want to choose

    1. What is your favorite 1st generation Pokemon?

    Mewtwo for sure.

    2. Why is it your favorite:

    Cuteness? Mewtwo was not meant to be cute. Badassery? Oh yes, he's the strongest of the first generation Pokémon, and still technically is even with Arceus' 720 across the board. The weirdness is because of how unnatural he is, but that's part of his charm. There's just a lot to Mewtwo that makes him my favorite, from his strength, to his design, to his tragic backstory resulting in some of the best characterization in the anime. Mewtwo is my favorite Pokémon period.

    1. Sandslash. For sure

    2. Badassness factor. A giant shrew with spikes out the back and big claws is definitely badass.

    1. Charizard, for sure.
    2. The icon factor (he, along with Venasaur, were the franchises' original mascots, before the whole anime "Pokemon Yellow" thing). He's also just......EPIC.

    Happy to help you in your project.
    My favorite Pokémon of this generation is, even if it isn't original, Eevee. I always like her design so the cuteness goes but also part of her rarity. Because she's not very common, it makes her an unique Pokémon that we have to keep preciously.

    Dragonite Or Arcanine

    My favourite 2 on my HeartGold and both felt like companions. Arcanine until all 16 badges and dragonite in the aftergame never leaves my team

    I have to go with Dragonite, and the badass factor. afterall, he is one badass pokemon

    1. What is your favorite 1st generation Pokemon?
    One of the most commonly loved ones: Charizard

    2. Out of theses options, why is it your favorite:
    -Its badassness factor-It resembles a Dragon, which I have always loved
    -Its involvement in the anime-I grew up with the Anime, so it is safe to say its involvement has played a part in why I like it.

    I've always been a major lover of caterpie. The reasons are a mix of the given; Cuteness naturally is a major factor, and I also think anime involvement might qualify, with caterpie's being utterly adorable in Ash Catches A Pokémon contributing quite a bit to my liking it, as well as a bit of the weirdness factor as well, as caterpie is cute, but not exactly a conventional cute thing, like something like pikachu would be. I've always found creatures not everyone would immediately label as "cute" pretty adorable, caterpillars being a major one, so not being something most people like is also a plus.

    Not like my quite possibly single vote for it would do much for your poll, but whatever.
    All fear the vampiric ghost skeletal uber mr. mime caterpie!

    Thank you Megadio for the awesome banner.

    My favorite 1st gen Pokémon is Flareon, partly because of its cuteness and its type, and partly because of something else I can't really pin down. It's hard for me to fully explain why Flareon has beaten out so many other Pokémon for my favorite, but it's always been one of the preferred members of my team in every generation.

    Now if you were doing this poll for 4th gen, I could go on and on about my other favorite Pokémon. ; )

    Good luck with your project!

    1.) Favorite 1st gen pokemon? Kabutops.

    2.) Why? To pick from your list of criteria, it would be:

    a) His badassness. Why? I always thought the fact that he had scythes for arms was ridiculously awesome.
    b) His type. Water types are my favorite type.

    I'd tell you this. I also did this kind of survey that you're doind here in the past for my college finals project.

    1. What is your favorite 1st generation Pokemon?
    Personally, I'll be honest with you. I began with the Hoenn Saga in the games. But out of al 151 pokemon, I'm on tie between Butterfree and Mew as the most influential of the 1st gen pokemon. But if I have to choose one, its Butterfree
    2. Out of these options, why is it your favorite:
    For butterfree:
    -Its cuteness factor
    -Its involvement in the anime
    For mew:
    -Its cuteness factor
    -Its rarity
    -Its type
    -Its involvement in the anime
    -Its ability's/attacks

    @Golemite
    I picked these factories because Im studying not only the air time a pokemon got but how it was presented in the anime. For an example of somthing I could learn is did the producers of the anime to strike a balance of badass cute and weird pokemon or was it more random. Also I just wanted to add more information to my presentation.

    Also I have posted on other forums and this forum hands down wins for the amount of responses ive gotten.

    -Thanks

    Jolteon

    Its badassness factor, come on it's speed is like a rocket lifting off into space and it's sp. atk is beast. Therefore making Jolteon a beast, and it looks cool.

    Magikarp...

    Because in gen1 it could learn surf... so if you traded it back to a new save... you could easily beat brock. Plus a badass Magikarp would be awesome.

    -Brock wants to battle!

    -Brock sends out Geodude!

    me -Go, Magikarp!

    -Brock - *heh, easy. this trainer isn't gettin no badge!*

    -Magikarp uses surf! It's Super effective!

    -Geodude faints!

    -Brock - ... o_0... *da hell?*

    lol if only...
