Game News Pokémon: The 10 most charismatic creatures!
While Pokémon Scarlet | Violet is coming out soon – November 18th – why not go back a bit? Sure: with almost thirty years of video games on the legs, the series offers us a whole set of creatures, but which one is the most charismatic? Our verdict.
Sitting in 48th place in the fourth generation of Pokémon: here comes Lucario. Fighting type creature | iron. Over the years, this has become true little star – which will be the subject of a film of its own (Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew) and a place in various episodes of the Super Smash Bros. series. Returning to Game Freak’s license, Lucario appears in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and can be obtained by evolving its base form, “Riolu”. For the rest, we don’t need to tell you why we find it amazing! Its design speaks for itself, with its mix of blue and black, its spikes, and its wolf-inspired shape. A masterclass.
Well, we go back a long way, to the time of the first generation. If I tell you, the fish that are useless but can be a complete “badass” monster, you tell me… Yes, we are talking about Gyarados, whose basic form is Magikarp. Apart from other creatures of the founding generation – such as Pikachu or Charizard – this is without a doubt one of the most important. Why? Perhaps it is his fearsome appearance, combined with a large size (6.2m in Pokémon Arceus) and attacks that remain in memories, such as Ultra Laser! Note that, since the sixth generation, the Levitatior can evolve into a “Mega-Leviator” with a “Leviatorite”.
Come on, for the rest, let’s stay in the first generation. We are talking about it, together with Gyarados and others, Charizard is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing creatures in the first roster. It is more than necessary to make presentations: it sits proudly on the jackets of the opus Pokémon Red (1998) and Pokémon Red Fire (2004) and it is – obviously – the last change in Salamèche then in Reptincel. Like Gyarados, the dragon becomes stronger thanks to two items from the sixth generation (Charizard X and Charizard Y) that give Mega-Charizard X or Y. The icing on the cake, in Sword and Shield, is it is also in gigamax .
The best soups are made in old pots? Obviously, since the new Pokémon in this selection are also from the first generation, it’s a class “final boss” of Pokémon Red and Blue! Yes yes, hello MewTwo, famous Psychic type creature, clone of Mew genetically modified by Team Rocket. He is also a movie star, appearing in Pokémon the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back. In general, it is perfect for creating a cult status. Of course, it is also a legendary Pokémon, which therefore harbors very powerful powers. In case you’re wondering: his birthday is February 6.
Come on, let’s end this bracket of the first generation of Pokémon to go to the third! So yes, 3G rhymes with Kyogre and Groudon, Pokémon stars of Ruby and Sapphire – quite charismatic in their genre… But at the same time, how is Rayquaza equaled on the cover of Pokémon Emerald (reissue of Ruby and Sapphire )? Yes, this Dragon and Flying type monster is also part of the “fathersand is the only thing that calms Kyogre and Groudon’s fight. As such, he is often referred to as their “leader”… Rayquaza here represents lightning, while the other two take care of the earth | fire and water. That’s a Pokémon that sent it.
While we’re at it, let’s stick with the dragon. Garchomp, does that mean anything to you? It’s a fourth-generation Ground-type Pokémon! Less “star” than the other members of this list, the bugger is nevertheless classy, It’s kind of funny how she went from “so cute” to “totally badass” between its first form (Griknot) and its final nature. If you want to chat with him: you can find him in Pokémon Diamond Pearl. A component that has also recently been the subject of a remake. Not bad to see Crachacrok in HD.
Well, this one, he could pass for a dragon, but hey! No need to introduce this: Lugia is a cult Pokémon from the Game Freak license. Yes, it is he that we see in the box of Argent (2001), Argent Soul Silver (2010, reissue of Nintendo DS) and even in Pokémon XD the Breath of Darkness, 3D episode released in 2005 on the Gamecube. Its design is not the most inspired by the license, but with its thin body, its big blue belly and its big arms, something really happens when you observe it. Like other creatures from the early Pokémon video games, Lugia remains a unavoidable. No doubt it will be for a long time.
Palkia / Dialga
It’s impossible to separate! But if you know, Palkia and Dialga are the two creatures featured in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. These are the two dragons that are central to the creation of Game Freak’s world. For good reason, Paklia, water type, controls space, while its counterpart Dialga, steel type, is the master of time… Together with Giratina, they form the “creation trio” which spawned everything we know, at least in the Pokémon universe. Without Palkia and Dialga, there would be no four dimensions. Their importance in the lore of pocket monsters and their exquisite design give them a natural charisma. They don’t want you to laugh too much.
We end, of course, with the boss of bosses, Arceus. It is simple, it is considered that creator of the universe All Pokemon, that’s all! So, although it was given the name of the game Arceus Legends, released in early 2022, the creature has been known to fans for more than ten years … Yes, its first appearance began in 2009 in Japan, in the movie Pokémon. : Arceus and the Gem of life. What is the discovery of the rarest and most powerful Pokémon, in the center of the game mentioned above. Inevitably, its design, refined and almost mysterious, gives it a very special charisma. Want to see it in action? That’s why you should go and discover the lands of Hisui in Pokémon Arceus.
