Scizor, the Pincer Pokémon and the evolved form of Scyther. Scizor’s wings are used to regulate its body temperature, and it intimidates foes by raising its eye-patterned claws high in the air.
Swalot, the Poison Bag Pokémon and the evolved form of Gulpin. Swalot has no teeth, so whatever it eats, it swallows whole, no matter how large the prey is.
Gyarados, the Atrocious Pokémon and the evolved form of Magikarp. Huge and vicious, an angry Gyarados is capable of destroying an entire city.
Greninja, the Ninja Pokémon and the evolved form of Frogadier. Greninja creates throwing stars from compressed water, which are sharp enough to split metal plates in two.
Some of the most popular Pokémon in existence are the ones we receive at the beginning of our journeys. Our Starters. And why not? They’re the first Pokemon you obtain on your journey. They almost always have great designs, as well as have great-looking evolutions. They’re with you for the entirety of the game – unless you’re the type of Philistine that deposits their starter in the PC. Sometimes they’re lacking in good stats and abilities, but that normally is besides the point. The bond we have for our Starter Pokémon is one that can’t be broken, so without further ado, here’s a rundown of our favourite Starter Pokémon.
Nintendo have always made great consoles, whether that means the humble Gameboy, the Wii or the DS, but they’ve all suffered from the same problem – the consoles and games have always been region-locked, meaning that a Japanese game couldn’t be played on an Irish Wii.
Bisharp, the Sword Blade Pokémon and the evolved form of Pawniard. Bisharp leads packs of Pawniard in taking down prey, moving in to strike the finishing blow itself.
