So, do you guys actually feel as though your Pokemon are friends, or do you think that they are just a string of 1's and 0's slapped together by Nintendo to fool us. I feel that the more Sharking is done, the less we appreciate the Pokemon themselves, and the more we see our friend Jolteon (or whatever Pokemon you like) as meaningless numbers that we don't care about.

In all honesty, and no matter how corny it may seem, I do have a sort of emotional attachement to my Pokemon. I've worked so hard to capture the perfect one, and box it, I don't give them away. Since last year, I caught abou 20 that are near perfects, all the major pokemon and strategize their attacks and whatnot. I've invested a lot of time into this silly game, and to get one of my Pokemon, you'd have to beat me in a match. That's why no way in nutty nuts would I give a Nintendo Rep any of my Pokemon. To me, and a select few elite trainers, part of the skill is in catching the Pokemon yourself, and raising it yourself. You'll never find me batteling with anybody elses Pokemon.

Where ever you see a Pokemon with the name PkMn, you'll know that it's been trained by Simon Locke, the hard way, boxing through the E4.

Not me, I couldn't give less of a crap about my Pokemon. If they are strong they make the team, otherwise they get benched.

I don't raise my Pokemon with 'care', I shove rare candies down their throats and force them to evolve. After this 'heartwarming' procedure I infuse them with Calciums, Steroids and whatever stat enhancing drug I can find. When they are all buffed up I dump whatever worthless moves they might have and use training machines to rob them of their originality. Then as the final act of 'love' towards my Pokemon I toss them in a deep dark unknown dungeon and force them to fend for themselves. Buahaha!

You can hug and kiss your Pokemon, even tuck them in at night, turning them into Carebears.

Or you can use unatural resources to turn your, otherwise cute little bundles of joy, into bloodthirsty killing machines bred in the darkest corner of hell!

I think it's pretty obvious that my Pokemon are my friends.

I wouldn't have them on my team if I didn't like them. That's why I'll never have a Mewtwo or a legendary bird on my team...they'd never be my friends, they'd just be furious in their little Pokeballs all day long.

The way I see it, the point of the game is to take your favorite six and make them the best they can possibly be.

The only way I really don't follow my heart here is the limitation I have on having too many Pokemon of the same type and...well, as much as I like Magikarp (he's probably my third favorite or so), I just can't have him on my team. I have trained up one to L99 and he kicks ass...for a Magikarp, that is.

I enjoyed slaughtering my friend's team with just him when he was in his 50s and my friend's team was all pretty young.

Unfair, yeah, but totally demoralizing.

I'm sure his team would waste my Karp now, but they'll always know who once owned their asses.

Every pokemon I use has some heart gripping tale attached to it. Wrath (my beedrill) has a long story attached to it.

They're my friends. Especially my Staryu and Flareon, both of whom have pulled off some neat against-the-odds winnage in Stadium. I feel kinda proud of them when they win; my head knows that they're just ones and zeros, but my heart says otherwise.

I got a little lump in my throat the first time my Staryu came out of its Pokeball in Stadium and did that oh-so-cool backflip. If it had said "H'ya!" like in the cartoon show, I'd probably have burst into tears.

I had to bond with my Pokémon. There was no way around it, especially since I've written an epic story that followed/s my training. From getting Paras through a trade to training it to withstand a Mewtwo, from getting Squirtle from Professor Oak, to the time that I mistakenly thought that he was female. All happened, all storiezed so that I can remember it forever ^_^

I'm really attached to my Pokémon. I have an Articuno, Freeza!, (no not DBZ, although he's cool too, I named Freeza! before I knew about DBZ) who has always been with me. He was with my original team. I have had my game reset once and almost lost my game again. Luckily, Freeza! was on my Red game at the time. He has fought in every battle up until recently. I trained him with boosted EXP, and he has crappy moves like Fly, but I still feel attached to him, even when a blast from one of Biffster's Pokémon takes it out in a hit. :-)

Not taking into affect severe mental problems and dementia issues (wish I was kidding) I love the guys. I never leave Golem off my team, and although I gave him the stat boosters, I like to think I put it in his food. If they were real things would be much cooler, and then people would not look at me so weird when I say I have a pokemon addiction. Then at least they might understand why I spend my days training instead of going to parties (unless they involve pokemon) and why I have my timer maxed out on all the games. I love it by choice, not because I have nothing better to do, and people have trouble understanding that ( I would ), so the answer would be I never see them as ones and zeros, unless I focus on their stats.

I'd say my pokemon are definately my friends...from my old favorites to the newcomers......all my pokemon stories are below...

Back when I first got the game, I picked out Bulbasaur, and he helped me through the game ever since. He was in almost every battle...reaching L70 by the E4 while none of my others made it past 36.
I also have my old team of favorites... Pidgeot: L70, who has been neglected lately, Pikachu: L82, who recently learned Surf...and my two other Level 100s, Alakazam and Dewgong. Though most of them have terrible stats (like Dewgong's Speed...though it has almost perfect Special, and I'm not done BTing yet), I've had them since my first time playing, and I'd never get rid of them....

Plus there are others I used to use...Fearow: L42, who used to be my main flyer before he got replaced by Pidgeot at the E4...and Starmie, who made it past the E4 twice, once as a Staryu, once as a Starmie...he was ditched for Dewgong, so I could have an Ice-type. I might start using him again...didn't use that Psychic TM on him for nothing...

And then there's the newcomers to my team...

Back when I first started, I had no idea the legendaries + Mewtwo were one-shot pokemon, and passed up all of them.... Now, Articuno was one of my stars in the Poke Cup R2 on Stadium, and Mewtwo, though his stats are horrible, plowed through the Prime Cup and clobbered the R2 end Mewtwo...
One of my Stadium prizes was an Eevee with perfect Speed...the Poke Cup rental Jolteon was terrible, both in stats and moves, so I decided to send this one to Yellow for training. I gave it F-E, T-bolt, Sand-Attack, and T-Wave... it turned out to be the key to my Poke Cup R2 victory. All because of that T-Wave and Focus Energy that the rental didn't have...

Those are some of the main highlights of my pokemon experiences...I just got a new blue game for the purpose of capturing perfect (or at least close) versions of the one-shot pokemon...plus some of the blue-only Pokemon and some TMs...

Well, yes I do. If I ever lost my tauros, I'd be lost. If we all went around dumping weak pokemon because they weren't a good asset to our team, we'd be a race of super boring trainers. If you can honestly say you didn't feel the least bit proud of your pokes when they reached lv. 100 for the first time, I feel sorry for you.

I do, definitely. I catch a bunch to find one with the best stats (for purposes of practicality) and I don't hesitate to use Dodrio mode; but still, though, I consider all my Pokemon to be real (in a fictional sense), and as such I like them. I musta spent hours coming up with nicknames alone... :-) But yeah, I think that's half the fun, really. And no, I don't treat them like CareBears. They're lean, mean, fighting machines; just *friendly* fighting machines. ^_^

Alright, I guess their are some trainers that are like me out there and feel proud of their Pokemon. But then some trainers don't give a damn (*cough* DaSani, No-BS, Pink Elephant *cough*). I like my ragged old Pokes as well. Whenever I start over, I save the oldies and place them in a classic oldies box. Ditching my Charizard because he sucked was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do, and finding out that Pikachu really WASN'T better than Raichu irritated me, as I reluctantly decided that my L76 Pikachu from Viridian Forest would just live in the box rather than being evolved at such a late stage in its life.

Now though, my favorite Pokemon is my Jolteon named McCUTCHEON. I stole the name off of the episode of the Simpsons where Marge became a pretzel dealer. I am also attached to my Dugtrio, and to a lesser extent my Mew, MINIMEW (named after Minime in Austin Powers Spy Who Shagged Me).

It did indeed bring a tear to eye when I saw McCUTCHEON hop out into the Stadium for the first time, and he has this weird green tint to him, but I have grown to accept it as well.

I figured that I would always be a hardcore Pokemon battler, not caring about the Pokemon at all, and seeing them only as a means to an end, but that is not possible. Any longtime Pokemon Trainer will always remember their favorites, and will feel sick to consider them a string of 1's and 0's.

Although, I can't help but wonder how much better Pokemon could have been in the first place. I thought it should be an N64 game. An adventure game in which you customize your trainer's appearance from head to toe, and run through the world Mario or Zelda style. You would have to aim Pokeballs rather than relying purely on luck. Although odds would make tasks easier to accomplish, I can never keep myself from wondering as to how cool it would be, if you saw a wild Pokemon, but rather than trying to take it's picture, like in Pokemon snap, you could say Jolteon GO! Your character on screen would grab a Pokeball from his belt and toss it out. Jolteon would pop out, the camera would switch to battle view in which you control your Pokemon, rather than RPG style fights. The amount of damage you deal would still be based on all the things it is now, only you would be able to control the action. When the wild Pokemon is weakened, then you could toss a Pokeball and try to capture it. And you would be able to pick a Pokemon that walks with you rather than nothing or Pikachu. All in glorious High-Rez 3D Expansion Pak quality graphics. Oh well, maybe on Dolphin.

I love my pokemon too. I bought a little dratini that took me three sets of batteries(and a whole lot of paydays)to buy him. then I went and evolved him into dragonite. we lost all connection when he became a killing machine. he constantly disobeyed me and I feared he would soon turn on me so I let him go. then I took my meowth, whom I also have a strong bond with, and got another one, I am happy to say me,meowth, and dragonair, are the closest of friends.even though I could never leave ooter(chansey)behind.

I think I had tears in my eyes when Koffing laid down his life to help me defeat the E4 for the first time...

...too bad the experience has since been tainted by running thru the E4 a million times.

But the first time Oak complemented me on my training and my bond with my Pokemon, I was all choked up...

Yes, I thought Oak was complimenting me as well. Then after Cerulean Cave, Mewtwo had stomped the elite four so many times that I wanted Oak to just shut up.

Ya well, when I first beat the E4 I sent out my Gastly. Wow I loved that Pokemon soo much. He helped me catch the legendary birds, which I could never do before. He fought well until we got to Gary. Gastly took a dive...
I will never forget that day...

That was the day Gastly left my team, the day I tossed Gastly in the Pokebox number 9. For failing me, he is damned for eternity, trapped in his Pokeball which is trapped in a PC.

Let this be a lesson to all you foolish Pokemon that would DARE fail me...

Put your life on the line,
Or be trapped in number nine.

This is odd. You obviously got him from the Game Corner, making you the original trainter, but I thought traded Pokemon were the only ones who can disobey.

Yep. I love 'em all. Sorta. The way I train is like this: Raise my current team to lvl 50. Stick 'em in a box and let 'em rot. Take out another six. Raise to lvl 50. Stick 'em in a box and let 'em rot. Etcetera.

I don't love because I know they're not real, but I felt attached to my last team, Clefable, Raichu, Exeggcutor, Starmie, Articuno, Flareon. I didn't want to lose them when I decided to start a new game, so I stuck them in my Stadium box so they will live forever.

I love my Pokemon!

. . . well, only Chansey--the rest can rot in their spherical prisons.

Yes... I mostly train Pokémon that I like. That's the only reason I keep Arbok on my team...

I don't think the people at Gamefreak were thinking "People who don't fight lots of monsters and love their pokemon aren't playing the game right, or shouldn't be playing it, etc", when they made it. :P

I like my Snorlax. He has always been with me. I think that anyone could love their Pokémon no matter how much they cheated to get it. It's all kind of silly, if you think about it though.

You'd better shut up or my Snorlax will sit on you!

You gotta love your Pokemon. I don't fight in much game link cable battles, so I can get away with using Pokemon like Butterfree and Onix. My favorite is that nutty Nyorozo.
My first fave was Blastoise. I saw him in the commercials for Pokemon and I thought: "Hey, it's a giant tortoise with cannons stickin' out of its shell! It rocks!" Then months passing before the game became available in my area, the TV show started airing. In the Pokerap, I saw Poliwhirl, and I knew it was the best Pokemon ever. Many moons later, and a whole cornor of my room is piled up with Poli-Plushes and whatnot. I have all of his cards, except for the first gym leader set. Ah, Poli is so cool, especially in GS. His Water/Fighting will lay utter waste to its antipode in #248, Rock/Evil. Oh, how sweet it is!

I love my pokemon and consider them precious. I still have my first surfing Pikachu from the first Yellow game I started. His name is Dude. I also love my (once thought male) Chansey "Frank". It really made me question my sexuality when I found out they were all females. My new pokemon from ru/sa are less endeared to me. One that stands out is Wobbuffet. He's started kindling embers of agape in my once bereft, desolate heart.

I get somewhat attached, emotionally to cars, bikes, furniture, etc., so it's no surprise that I'm fond of my pokemon. I'm trying to be harder-hearted about it, releasing pokemon with bad stats, but once I decide to keep a pokemon, I feel obliged to train it. That's a lot of training.
