7. Blaziken (First Appearance: Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire)
Two words: Ninja. Chicken.
Okay, that may not be the most accurate descriptor for Blaziken, but it comes pretty darn close. Blaziken was the final evolved form of the fire starter in Ruby/Sapphire, and he was incredibly cool. He looked like he meant nothing but business, and his long legs, used for rapid kicking, made him instantly appealing to everyone who followed/liked/loved/knew about wrestling/martial arts/kick boxing. In addition, his typing, Fire/Fighting, was very unique at that time, and it gave him a massive advantage over a lot of Pokemon in the games, and also made for some unique moves like Blaze Kick.
Then there was the fact that he had great stats, which made him unique amongst all the starters in that he could actually be used in competitive battles. And the fact that he had looked so awesome on TV- seriously, he had shared screen space with Ash’s Charizard, and where Charizard simply dominates the screen no matter who’s on it with him, he had been forced to concede a lot of it to Blaziken. Blaziken actually managed to look awesome in spite of Charizard being there.
Seriously, that speaks the most about his coolness. He was like the new millennium’s Charizard.
6. Haxorus (First Appearance: Pokemon Black/White)
He has blades on his face. How cool is that?
No, seriously. Just look at that. Blades. On his f**king face. I mean, that automatically makes him like one of the coolest things ever created.
Haxorus is awesome. As a Pokemon, he is incredibly hard to train, but if you manage to do it right, you have on your hands what is undoubtedly the most powerful legal Pokemon in Black/White. His stats, in combination with his abilities and the attacks that he can learn, make him a deadly force to reckon with, and he can single handedly provide all the firepower that your team needs.
All of which takes a backseat to the fact that he has blades on his face. Seriously.
5. Tyranitar (First Appearance: Pokemon Gold/Silver)
Tyranitar is one of the most powerful Pokemon, ever. He is also one of the few Pokemon whom you really don’t want to see pissed, because for some reason, it’s easier to imagine him being hacked off and evil than it is other Pokemon. Maybe the Celebi movie has something to do with that.
His typing- Rock/Dark- gives him quite a few weaknesses, but it is still next to impossible to actually defeat a Tyrnaitar, mostly because of insane speed, high defense, and almost unfairly high attack and special attack. Assuming you manage to send in a Pokemon that might be able to land a shot at Tyranitar, chances are Tyrnaitar would knock him out before your Pokemon even gets the chance. If you sende one in that can attack before Tyranitar can, most likely, you aren’t gonna be able to do much damage.
It’s the reason why Tyrnaitar remains the most used Rock Pokemon ever.
