I still remember the first time I encountered that beauty. I was completely awestruck by the design and had the strongest desire ever to obtain it.
Then I read its Pokémon type. Disaster? Oh it won a permanent spot in my favorites for that one.
There are a few other good ones too, but nothing else left such a strong impression on me like Absol did. It's one of those Pokémon that I don't really use in my team, but I HAVE to have it at least in a box. Just so I can look at it ever now and then.
Rayquayza without a doubt is my absolute favorite pokemon of all the 3rd Gen. I mean, its a Flying Dragon pokemon! And its pretty epic looking itself, so you would know that you got a fantastic pokemon when it turns out to be this.
Blaziken hands down. It's a flippin badass that's like "Yeah so I'm a chicken. I'll also drop-kick you from here to Unova! You gotta problem with that?"
Also it was my starter on Sapphire, which was also my first Pokemon game
My Gen III favorite would probably be taillow because I like it's overall design, just nice and simple, and spinda due to its uniqueness, no two spinda are said to be identical (I mean they're spots) those swirly things in their face are those suppose to be their eyes? How the heck do they see in them? *shrugs*
Torkoal was my favorite! I honestly never used him until playing the game last year randomly. It has amazing defense and its a beast fire pokemon. Also it has a pretty good ability White Smoke so the other pokemon can't lower its stats!
