People are voting about the most handsome Pokemon, and all I can think is Princess Elise giving Sonic the Hedgehog one big smooch...

I see this list, and I know for a fact that all of these pokemon will have a Mega Evolution/Primal for Legendary's. The people can inprise the creators to it.

It seems that Dragonite and Garchomp simply didn't make the cut for the poll. A bit of a shame, considering how their capable of lasting long battles with their high HP, high Attack, and fairly remarkable defensive stats. They only have to worry about Ice-type and, to a lesser extent, Dragon-type and Fairy-type moves that will make quick work of them.

Then again, there's also Kingdra, whose stats are balanced and, thanks to its typing, is only vulnerable to Dragon and Fairy.

Edit: Oh yes! 3900 posts! Smile

Lucario is definitely the most handsome Pokemon, not my favorite but pretty handsome.

The first Pokemon that comes to my mind is most certainly Mewtwo, followed by Lucario and Gallade. Plus, I don't know the details, but most Pokemon in later generations seem to be a lot less cooler than their predecessors.

Right, I forgot about Salamence and Haxorus, the two other Dragon-types that sport a bone-crushing Attack stat and have seemingly attractive looks to match them. The former is the more brutal, thanks to its Mega Evolution.

If one is looking for a Fighting-type Pokémon that is both graceful and packs a massively powerful kick, look no further than Mienshao. Thanks to its overwhelming Attack, Mienshao's physical Fighting-type moves can shut down most challengers before they even have a chance to act. In addition, its fairly high Special Attack makes its Aura Sphere a viable move to have in its moveset.

I think this is the first time I've seen Fearow on a top 20 list of anything Pokémon-related after Generation I.

Whoa, I never even thought about him. He gets the shaft? He's even presented as a dashing heroic caped fighter in his Mega form.

But Diancie is supposed to look like a princess and is treated like so in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.

Gallade is actually a divergent evolution of Kirlia that can only be done on male Kirlia by exposing them to the Dawn Stone. If you let them evolve by leveling up, they'll evolve into Gardevoir regardless of gender. It was first introduced in Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum.
