I saw this blog challenge and just had to do it! It combines two of my favourite things, after all - kitschy nostalgia and the survey format...
Day 1: Favourite Pokemon
Day 2: Least Favourite Pokemon
Unown. What a disappointment they were when you opened a new pack of Pokemon cards. Or just in general, to be honest.
Day 3: Favourite Starter Pokemon
Well, Pikachu, obviously, because Pokemon Yellow was my jam. But, if I couldn't have Pikachu, I'd start with Charmander because at the beginning you're up against a load of plant based green Pokemon. Fire is going to make that vegetation burn.
Day 4: Favourite Eeveelution
Day 5: Favourite Legendary Pokemon
Day 6: Most Terrifying Pokemon
Cubone. I mean, Cubone itself is adorable, but the concept of it is pretty terrifying - a kid wearing it's mother's skull and staining it with its helpless tears. It's supposed to be a kid's show!
Day 7: Most Adorable Pokemon
Day 8: Most Amusing Pokemon
Poor old psyduck.
Day 9: Favourite Pokemon Type
The purple psychic ones. They had lots of cool powers.
Day 10: Least Favourite Pokemon Type
Earth. They were vulnerable to a lot and their background colour was brown. Who wants a collection of brown cards?
Day 11: Favourite New Pokemon From Black & White
What are these newfangled games of which you speak?
Day 12: Favourite Pokemon Card
It has to be the Ancient Mew you got with the first film. It was just so shiny.
Day 13: How Did You Store Your Cards?
I had a couple of the official card albums, then I moved onto a binder with plastic pockets because it was easier to rearrange them. After I quit collecting them I literally decorated a wall (well, part of a wall) with them!
Day 14: Favourite Companion
I liked all of Ash's companions. Well, maybe not that weird Ritchie kid he travelled around with for a bit, but the rest of them were cool. Brock was a lech, but it probably ran in the family given the endless siblings he was caring for at the beginning of the series, and Tracey was shy and had a kick ass Scyther. Misty just inched them both out for top spot though. She was never afraid to speak her mind!
Day 15: Prettiest Pokemon
Ponyta and Rapidash.
Day 16: If You Could Live Anywhere In The Pokemon World, Where Would It Be?
Anywhere but that city destroyed by giant Tentacruel. That episode was nightmare fuel.
Day 17: If You Could Be Any Pokemon, What Would You Be?
Snorlax. What a life.
Day 18: Favourite Gym Leader
It's a toss up between Erika and Sabrina. Sabrina was kind of goth, but Erika had the prettiest trainer cards...
Day 19: Officer Jenny or Nurse Joy?
It has to be Nurse Joy - she had better hair.
Day 20: Favourite Pokemon Professor
Professor Oak. I didn't realise there were others, to be honest.
Day 21: Favourite Pokemon Bad Guys
Day 22: Favourite Rival
Gary Oak, of course.
Day 23: A Pokemon Which Reminds You Of A Friend
Day 24: A Pokemon You'd Find Useful In Real Life
Mr. Mime. All he wanted to do was cook and clean for Ash's mum. Now, that's my kind of pet!
Day 25: A Pokemon Based On Your Favourite Animal
Day 26: A Pokemon That Is Your Favourite Colour
Day 27: Favourite Pokemon Game
Pokemon Yellow. I hated the tiny little screen of the gameboy though - don't get me started on mobile phone gaming... - so I had Pokemon Stadium for my Pikachu N64 with the pad extension so I could play it on the TV.
Day 28: What Did You Nickname Your Rival?
Gary. I was unoriginal, okay?
Day 29: Favourite Pokemon Tune or Song
Gotta Catch 'Em All. The original and best.
Day 30: Most Nostalgic Element of Pokemon
We rewatched the first series recently and it took me right back to the carefree summer when I was ten years old.
