Which pokemon would you be? And if so would you give him a unnecessary back story?

I don’t know about you guys but I would be…
Sableye!
Because he looks pretty cool.
(Also he has no weakness…)

>No weaknesses.

My Absol will destroy you!

(Look at that majesty. LOOK AT IT!)

(Well actually I mean’t like it doesn’t have those element weaknesses. You know like water beats fire…)
But anyways.
You’re on!

Does Ric Tesla count?

I’m kidding.

The Unknown of course.

Backstory: [Please see Russian Fedora’s Writing Thread to find the backstory that may require a wraparound for Pokémon formatting]

I’ll be a Torchic if only so that I can call myself “El pollo loco”.

As for an unnecessary backstory…

Once a normal, flaming chicken of miniscule size, he witnessed the murder of his family. He watched as his family fell at the hands of THE COLONEL. His family cried out for vengeance as they were crafted into a family bucket and handed off to the next hungry family. His life was forever changed.

Years have passed by….
His actual name is Bob but when he puts on that mask his name is….
‘’EL POLLO LOCO’’
He protects other birds like pokemons and protects them from the Colonel’s evil greasy clutches!

I’d be a Gen. 1, obviously.

Just haven’t decided which one yet…

Nah, not likely. Not my style.

I just don’t remember enough to really pick one…

Yeah, thanks.

Still can’t decide. None of them really suit me…

Eh it’s okay.

I guess I’m just not the Pokemon type.

would be an overly friendly Steelix. Although due to my menacing size and appearance everything is scared shitless of me and runs away when i try to make friends and give them hugs, leaving one cheerful and friendless Steelix.

I think im fine with that back story.

I would be MissingNo. Who was found by a trainer named NULL in NULL city to fight in NULL tournament and won the NULL championship title. Then carried on NULLING in NULL with NULL for NULL

Inb4 Adam DeLand says Snivy.

Au contraire RF, to be honest I would choose Emolga.

The backstory is that he was originally a human that was starting a haven for certain Pokemon that included an Eevee (male), a Riolu (female) and twin Zoruas (male & female). Over the course of time, they developed a strong bond. The Pokemon wanted to be able to communicate with their human friend clearly, so they went to Jirachi to have turned into an Emolga (it was the female Zorua’s idea), yet he would have the ability to switch back into a human whenever he wanted so his original identity would dissapear completely.

And that’s the story.

My Sableye has a friendship with a Scrafty but they mostly try to kill each other.
Straight forward story.
Ta-da!

May 07, 2012 at 08:26PM EDT

I dunno of a backstory. I was born. Had adventures. Became a martial art master of some sort. Now I fight evil-doers.
Cool.

I really have no idea. I would probably pick Pikachu, but only because that’s my favorite. I’ve only played two pokemon games unfortunately, and that was Yellow and Pearl. And I only memorized Gen 1, and I have no idea where they are now.

As for backstory, I was Ash’s Pikachu, but I murdered him when he tried to put me in a pokeball again. Now, I am working to gather all the Pokemon together to turn the tables against the stupid humans and become their masters.

Charmeleon. Because he has ’tude and #swag.

Because I love this guy.

As for the backstory, I’m sure I could come up with some gripping but sad death that led to my ultimate existence as a ghost, but I’m feeling far too lazy to even begin such a story.

I think Magnezone is highly attractive.

it’s funny because his hands are magnets and magnets attract metal

Keldeo. And no, this has nothing to do with MLP (nosrsly). Keldeo instantly became my favourite pokemon the moment the Gen 5 pokemon were revealed, months before The Hub even started.

It’s just so cute, fluffy, and elegant, all at the same time. Plus, it’s insanely powerful and rapes through entire teams, so much that its Specs Hydro Pump in the rain is a clean 2HKO on Blissey (which, if you don’t know, is the most specially defensive pokemon in the game). Keldeo is best pony pokemon.

Back story? Hmm, I dunno. I suppose I had a traumatic childhood, in which both of my parents were killed when I was at a very young age. I vowed to avenge them, and tirelessly practiced both my physical fighting skills, my agility and speed, and water-bending. I swore one day that I would find the ones that killed my parents, and bring them to justice…

There, I stuffed as many clichés, tropes, and stereotypical plot elements I could into three sentences.

I would be a ditto. Back story: Team rocket’s first attempt to clone Mew left them with a deformed blob that only retained one of Mew’s moves: Transform. Also, being a ditto would allow me to be any other Pokemon if I wanted. But I wouldn’t. Because ditto is awesome.

ONE DAY, they will get desperate enough to make a cake-mon. Until then, Miltank. An essential part of my being. That, or Gary Oak. Freaking mindless savage, always sniffin’ you up, like a dog. Well, I wouldn’t want to BE him, just train him. Teach him Self-Destruct and Explosion. Smell ya later!

And backstory?

Yo, names aggron, two G’s dog. I started out small, got bullied a lot in rock school…
THEN I EVOLVED INTO AGGRON. Ever since then I’ve been unstoppable, I get everything I want. I’m pretty much perfect. I just straight up at a steelix (shit was so cash.)

I don’t want to be a Pokemon. I’d have too much fun being the trainer.
