#515 Panpour

My rating: 5.5. Meh water monkey is meh. Not great in battle, design doesn’t stand out to me, and I never used it in game. Would get lower, but I have this one card of it I really like of it carrying a pot of coffee on its head. -The-Hydra

5/10. Panpour doesn’t stand out at all for me. It actually looses points when it evolves; Simipour is one of the few pokémon who’s design I actively dislike. It’s just ugly and weird. -Braddock

3/10 from me. -ShadowJay

Panpour is eh, same with all the elemental monkeys. He’s cute enough, but I never used him in BW/BW2 (are they given to you in BW2? I don’t even remember) cos I didn’t like that I would have to wait until I got an evolutionary stone before I could evolve him. His final form isn’t too bad, though. Nice speed and attacking stats. I’ll give Panpour a 6.5/10 -3m0d0ll

 my rating: 4. It and its evolution are annoying. Same goes for the other elemental monkeys. :P -Arrow-Jolteon

Recently used Simipour in my White 2 run. I like the elemental monkeys. c: 7 from me! -Corey

Average Rating: 6.2

#471 Glaceon

 My Rating: 7. I find Glaceon to be one of the better eeveelutions. I like to use it in battle sometimes with the choice specs, and also in the TCG. It’s got a pretty good design too, so not a bad eeveelution all-around. -The-Hydra

I adore all Eeveelutions! Sylveon has my heart at number one, but Glaceon and all the others are awesome too! 8 from me! -Corey

Glaceon is probably my least favorite of the Eeveelutions. It’s still a great pokémon and has a good design, of course. All of the eeveelutions are very good pokémon. I think one of the reasons I don’t like it as much as others is its bangs and the dangling hair-like things on its head. It gives it a decidedly female look and I hate when they make a pokémon that can be male or female look pointedly like one sex or the other. It’s just apersonalquirk, but I find it weird when I have a female Machamp or a male Gardevoir (especially when it Mega-Evolves). Still, I give Glaceon a 6/10. -Braddock

Glaceon is one of the best Eeveelutions, in my opinion. It gets an 8 from me. :) -Tenacity

my rating: 9. It’s an eeveelution, so of course I’m gonna love it. Glaceon is in my opinion the most difficult eeveelution to use in combat, but man does it pay off when it’s successful. It’s also got a nice, elegant design. -Arrow-Jolteon

8/10 One of my favourite Eeveelutions! -Ghostwriter

Average Rating: 7.7

#449 Hippopotas

My rating: 7. Considering I’ve never really used one, and it’s design is kind of odd, it might’ve gotten a lower rating if it didn’t have sand stream and was also based off my favorite animal. So a good-old-fashioned 7 for Hippopotas o3o -The-Hydra

I always thought Hippopotas was super cute. :3 I’ve never really used it in-game, and the female color scheme is sub-par, but it evolves into a very useful Pokemon, learns the Elemental Fang moves, and has Defense up the wazoo. Overall, 7/10 from me. -3m0d0ll

My rating: 6 I like it. :3 Hippowdon is a great Pokemon, because it has great HP, Defense, and doubled Special Defense in the sand with a great movepool and nice Attack stat. -Corey

Average Rating: 6.7

#065  Mega Alakazam

 My rating: 7 Mega Alakazam is alright, but I think they could’ve done better with this one deisgn-wise. It does however, make up for it with awesome stats (base 150 speed woo) and a cool ability for a mega (Trace). Plus, he’s got a lot of spoons. Can’t argue with those. -The-Hydra

My rating: 8 I love Mega Alakazam. :D The wizard theme going on is really awesome. And yes, not one, but FIVE spoons. -Corey


Its design is really funny, not awesome… but funny! But it has good arguments with its stats… But I can’t cogitate seriously with those levitate spoons, it’s really awesome for eat ice-cream or kill somebody with a gang of spoon XD So my rating… 8 (for the spoons *dead* ) -Northern Light

This is my only thought about M-Alakazam: -insert picture of M-Alakazam battling a horde of Vanilitle- 10/10 -3m0d0ll

7/10. Not one of the best Megas around but a pretty hilarious design. Though I don’t really like why they did to the legs, made it look like it was crippled or something. The spoons are weird too but comical. It has above decent stats for a Mega so it’s still cool. -Ghostwriter

Based on its look, it’s unimpressive, but it is a decent Mega Evolution in battle, so it gets somewhere between 7.5-8. I’m not exactly sure what it gets, though. -Metal Gear Snivy

Well, Along with Megacham, WHY DID THEY LOOK LIKE INDIANS?! I haven’t tried one before, though. 5/10 -Voltaire Magneton

Average Rating: 7.6

#618 Stunfisk

My Rating: 8 Stunfisk is not widely admired, I know. But I think he’s pretty neat. He has a really cool typing, and I don’t see why his design is so repulsive, I actually like it. While he’s a little awkward in competitive battling, he’s still always fun to use so you can mess with people’s heads. Plus, that epic cry. -The-Hydra

Why the 3D model though? How can one appreciate its looks? Haven’t used one though, but unique typing, and I don’t find it repulsive. Just weird. -6/10 -Voltaire Magneton

 6/10 Have used it in battle and it’s pretty good for fooling people who underestimate it. -Ghostwriter

my rating: 6 It does look sorta derpy, but it is definitely not ugly. I’ve never used one, but props for the cool typing. -Arrow-Jolteon

Average Rating: 6.5

#507 Herdier

My rating: 5 Eh. It’s really always been too bland for my tastes. Plus I’ve never really used it in-game, so I have no special connection to it. It would get lower points if it didn’t have a fine mustache though. -The-Hydra

My rating: 7 I like it and its evolutionary family! It was pretty funny and cool in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity too. cx -Corey

my rating: 7.5 It looks like my doggy, so there’s no way I can’t dislike it XD -Arrow-Jolteon

I think Herdier is so cute. ;3; It’s a perfect size and shape for a dog Pokemon, pretty useful Pokemon stat- and move-pool-wise, and there’s that A+ mustache. I give it 8/10. -3m0d0ll

Average Rating:  6.9

And so this week’s ratings winner is Glaceon, the Ice-Type Eeveelution, with Mega Alakazam coming in a very close second! Be sure to check back soon for more Pokemon Opinons, and make sure to read our other articles as well!
