      Do people really use Sawk/Throh? Seems more out of place than Zebstrika to me.

        Yes. Also, it's available right before the Normal gym.

          Yeah but its not making it to the hall of fame, surely. Its useful for that gym but probably gets discarded later, like the Monkies. I always thought the Muppet duo were unpopular even among Unova mons.
          Something from the desert or Chandelure seem more generic on Unova hall of fame teams.

        I used Throh on my last replay of white, and it was pretty solid. Gave it bulk up and would sweep when needed. i never used sawk or throh before that because I thought they were ugly, but now I have a slightly better view on them. But I agree, that it is a questionable pick for a generic team.

      • 3 months ago

        Used Sawk since it was with the version I had, plus even looking at the design when I was younger (and knew nothing about the new Unova pokes back then) I knew Throh would be defensively-oriented, largely bulk with weird fighting moves like what Circle Throw would show itself to be.
        They deserved to be meme'd on for being Bert/Ernie-ass muppets, but they're very fun to slot in if they're distributed just right, as BW1 did.

      Generic teams vary based on starter picked. Think Gary's championship team where Pidgeot is a core part of the "shell"
      A swampert player will almost always take breloom, but sceptile and Blaziken players almost never will.

      I'll throw my data out there. My Blaziken team in ORAS was kinda generic,
      >Blaziken
      >Swellow
      >Aggron (lairon isn't that bad with sturdy)
      >Manectric
      >Kingdra (bit unusual)
      >Absol
      My original sapphire team was fricking bad.
      >Blaziken
      >Delcatty (running bolt/beam)
      >Mightyena
      >Absol
      >Swellow
      WTF was I thinking? It's a miracle I didn't turn out gay.

      Didn't use a single one of these

      >ayo time to replay some johto again

      Feraligatr chads don't use the red Gyarados. I did use Espeon and ampharos tho.

      Impossible to not be generic in DP. My empoleon team used luxray and staraptor. Platinum adds tons of fun options tho.

      Hard to say what's really generic in Hoenn when there's such a wide variety of useful Gen 3 mons throughout the whole game. These are definitely common picks given their availability before Mauville and coverage options.

      Definitely not Throh or Zebstrika, like

      Pretty sure the desert route pokemon(Krookodile,Scrafty,Darmanitan) are in every team

      said the desert mons are far more common. Unfezant and the monkeys too for the kids who didn't know any better at the time.

      >ayo time to replay some johto again

      Surprisingly I've never used Espeon in Johto. Amphy/Hera/Crobat were on my SoulSilver team though.

      That doesn't really work for BDSP since you can just fill your team with Underground mons. Only common mons I used were starter and Garchomp.

      What's the generic Kalos team?

      Starter, Kanto starter, Lucario, Lapras, Box legendary, Sylveon/Talonflame/Fossil

      >Donphan, fights every battle exclusively using defense curl+rollout
      >Breloom, didn't evolve until it learned spore because I never actually bothered trying to do that and it sucked ass having a shroomish the entire game

      Breloom and maybe Shedinja are the only generic ones here

      Exactly, it's not necessarily a problem imo. Some pokemon are just more popular than others and Sinnoh happens to put a bunch of them early on.

    Hoenn has way too many good picks to be using the same stuff every run (starters excluded because they're all great). Before you even get to the 2nd gym you have your choices of:

    Howl Poochyena (I got a shiny and used it the whole run)
    Pick-up Zigzagoon army
    Beautifly or Dustox status spreaders
    Lombre or Nuzleaf
    Taillow or PEEEEEKOOOO
    Ralts, which needs to be babied but gets Confusion for Brawley and Zubats
    Nincada -> Ninjask/Shedinja
    Slakoth (shines later on)
    Everything in Granite Cave, especially Makuhita, Aron, Sableye

    All before the 2nd gym, didn't even include everything you can encounter. Plenty to keep you busy until later when you can get Swablu, Duskull, Spheal, Claydol, Absol, etc.

    debatable, i'd say Flygon, Sceptile and HM slave like Linoone or Tropius

    Everyone is trying too hard at making a composed team even though it's "generic"

    Every gen the generic team is
    >Starter
    >most easily obtainable legendary before e4
    >Generic cool mon
    >filler

      I can't imagine anyone using Roselia over Ludicolo or Shiftry or Breloom
      Hell I'm pretty sure I used Bellossom in my first play through of ruby back in 2003

        Assuming it's gen 3 no one is going to use Roselia considering you have to trade for it in Emerald.

    It's kinda hard to nail the later gens because there's so much variety in the Dexes

      Did people actually use the Lucario? I'm sure children did but as a genwunner who bought the game because of the kanto starters getting new forms it made me seethe that my first mega pokemon had to be the furgay dog

        Yeah. Lucario is popular and it getting handed to you with a Mega made it an auto include for a lot of people.

        I didn't

        if anything it's probably Florges and Pangoro that get picked generically---I know I did

    >swellow
    no, hoenn has way too many cool mons for anyone to stick with the regional bird. in fact it has too many cool designs to make a list like this at all, but i bet you exploud, pelipper, flygon, and tropius all beat swellow out in usage for one reason or another.
