To round off our Pokemon month, let us get back to the heart of Pokemon. That, of course, is friendship and the bonds you form with these creatures you befriend (*cough* force to battle then catch most of the time, but I’ll use upbeat language *cough, cough*), all on this incredible journey. Pokemon as a series has evolved (ha), adding new mechanics to give a slightly fresh spin on the same formula that has been around from the start. Yet, a few components have not changed and I do not think ever will.
One is that your team of Pokemon that travel alongside you is made up of six members. Sure, your post-game goal is to ‘catch ’em all,’ since that is literally the catch-phrase for this industry, but all Pocket Monsters you gain after six go straight to the region’s professor or Bill or are trapped in a PC in the digital verse (maybe that’s how Digimon are made, lol), all depending on which version you are entertained by. You can choose and switch around your partners with ease, so having a team you want is fairly obtainable.
Yet, as the Champion of the Prism League (the TCG league I founded in my hometown to teach children how to play the game, BUT it has lore and we all have backstories), I pondered for you, dear followers of my quest: If I could have my dream team of Pokemon, using only Pokemon created/introduced in THAT region/gen, which six would battle alongside me on my way to the top?
I also figured, like the heroine, I would be blessed to meet at least ONE Mystic or Legendary being. HA! In modern games, it’s easier to get more, but that always seemed so unrealistic to me. So, I limited myself to one PER region and they are separate from my team.
If you click the name of each Pokemon, it’ll send you to their link on Bulbapedia to inform you more on these fine creatures that have given me so much in my life. ^_^ There are over 900, so picking 56 was a challenge, lol! I think this will introduce you to what type of person and trainer I am as well. I also tried to keep my teams balanced, but still keep ones that I really like/love.
Let’s introduce the team! Pokeball, GO!
