Hello. We are basically one-to-one copies of real-world four-legged mammals. We are all normal type, have no evolutions, and are very brown. You probably forgot we existed.

how underage are you
>>
>>37360249
I've played RBY probably more than any other gen, including Yellow the week it came out. What the fuck is a Tauros?
>>
>>37360246
>What moves do they learn?
Bouffalant in particular gets Head Charge, a signature move that's a superior version of Double-Edge. It gets Reckless, which further boosts the viability of this move.
>>
>>37360226
agree, the most boring designs, literally a cartoony bull bpufalant and deer, wiw what original
>>
>>37360246
Stantler actually mixes physical with status, it draws upon the deer's mysticism from Japanese folklore so it gets stuff like Confuse Ray, Spite and Hypnosis (though oddly doesn't get Mean Look).
The bulls are all about charging forward, Tauros gets more anger related stuff like Outrage and Stomping Tantrum (plus a lot of kaiju moves like elemental beams due to being from Gen 1) while Bouffalant gets the lariats like Wild Charge and its own signature move is a slightly less recoily Double Edge.
>>
>>37360248
I thought Specter was more of a Moth-based?
>>
>>37360226
Stantler is in my top 10 favorite Pokemon, how dare you!
>>
>>37360302
I believe their designs are influenced by the same device: a sort of "scarecrow" that resembles a giant eye, which intimidates wild animals. It's certainly possible that he's based on both that and a moth, of course, it's just something I thought of what with all the eye puns that Ghost's belt uses.

Tauros has fans because he used to be an absolute beast in gen 1.
>>
>>37360226
Bouffalant is the only one I agree with. Stantler would have made a good Psychic type, and I bet if Gen 1 wasn't so crowded with ground types, Tauros could have been one. Not that he's not the king of gen 1 anyway
>>
>>37360226
This kind of Pokemon are my favorite.
>>
>>37360264
You were playing Gen 1 wrong

Stantler should get illusion as hidden ability.
>>
>>37360226
>basically one-to-one copies of real-world four-legged mammals

Tauros has the body of a Bison with a studded head and three tails.
Bouffalant has the horns of a Yak and an Afro.
Stantler is just a deer.

what were they thinking?

Tauros has a stupidly large movepool.
>>

Yeah, I remember when I saw a toucan superheat its beak and shot seeds and rocks like a machine gun

You SHOULD be terrified of deer. Especially deer that can confuse you.

G*d Stantler is so fucking ugly, it should wiped out of the universe along with the fartthief who made it.
>>
>>37360264
You're a lying faggot.
Every single person I know who was old enough to play gen 1, collect the cards, and watch the anime remembers all of those fucking pokemon.
Dude even my stepdad can recognize the gen 1 pokemon
>>
>>37364027
I remember every pokemon up to gen 6 its not hard
>>
>>37364027
I was being facetious. Obviously I know what a Tauros is, I just never thought it was interesting or noteworthy. Nobody I knew used a Tauros.

Taurus is Gen 1, the others are just lazy.

I love Tauros and Stantler tho
>>
>>37360226
I remember Stantler because of what an aggro magnet it was during a playthrough of Colosseum last year.
>>
>>37362435
Tucan's aren't usually 5 feet tall.

Tauros was an absolute beast in Gen 1.
Ash's Tauros was a beast in the anime.
His design is actually really great.

Before Fairy type and Alola variants, there were far more forgettable Gen 1 Pokemon, but I guess those 2 things made Tauros go near the bottom of memorable mons.
>>
>>37360264
>What the fuck is a Tauros?
a rare safari zone mon with a stupidly low catch rate. protip: you can fight safari zone mons on the coast of cinnabar in red/blue due to a glitch, if you have a bunch of master balls from doing the missingno glitch you can get all the tauros kangaskhan scyther pinsir and chansey you want, no rng bullshit
>>
>>37365521
Is height the only thing you can argue?
>>
>>37360226
Nah, Tauros was the Gen. 1 god, and I used Stantler in Pokėmon Colosseum; was surprisingly solid.
>>
>>37360264
>What the fuck is a Tauros?

Kinda wish it got Normal/psychic instead of Girafarig. Make it a Normal/dark counterpart instead
>>
>>37360226
Tauros looks cool and it's always funny to remember that Ash caught 30 of them.
Stantler is ugly as sin, but those Christmas specials where it was used by Santa made me appreciate its existence a bit.
Bouffalant's concept and signature attack is pretty fun (AFRO BREAK).

My angry nigga KABASHI is based too.

quit shit talking about our even toed ungulate mons
>>
>>37360246
People like Tauros because it skullfucked the meta and then wore its skin as a hood. What it looks like is irrelevant.
>>
>>37364212
Which has more to do with fact that kids are fucking stupid than anything else.Especially ones from an era before everyone was online.
>Charizard
>blastoise
>Veusair
>Articuno
>Moltres
>Zapdos
That's the team they used.
>>
>>37365699
I'm just saying. Tauros is the size of a bull. Toucannon is fucking 5 feet tall.
>>
>>37366038
I'm pretty sure the first time I beat the Elite 4, my team was a Charizard and a level 90 Pidgeot that I caught at level 2 in the grass by Oak's lab.
>>
>>37366084
How do you know it was grass though?
>>
>>37366084
I meant for battling other kids.
>>
>>37366086
What else would it be?
>>
>>37360226
I remember they exist, if only because of how ugly they all are. Why are ungulates so hideous?
>>
>>37360246

dont forget Tauros has a notable gimmick in the anime and is owned by the main protagonist

only thing that is even slightly good about it is the flare on the tail that makes it look like a lit cannon fuse. otherwise it's literally my mom's toucan
>>
Wasn't even a compfag in Gen 1 but I carried Tauros in every region. Dude was fast and hit hard. I learned about STAB I wanted to find a way to get Tauros to OHKO faggots in Gen 3 even at the cost of its life. I love him being a ride Pokemon in USUM and LGPE so I can still have him in my team.
>>
>>37368938
That makes its a little better. Still a shit design with a shit type.

how is that in any way communicated through its looks?

Now that you mention it, Tauros is one of the only three mons my dad remembers (the other two being Pikachu and Primeape)
>>
>>37362245
>it wasnt a fire type
>its the final evolution to an entirely different bird people dearly want a Pokemon line for

These are the real mistakes
>>
>>37365521
Why are you defending its design so hard? Anyone looking at this Pokemon without knowing it is a Pokemon and not having extensively seen Toucans will immediately view it as simply a cartoon toucan and nothing more than that. Even other generic Pokemon like Furret or Hoothoot still are different enough from the animal they are depicting that anyone who views them recognizes them as at least being highly stylized. Even Taurous, which is literally my mom's bull, has the weird thing on its head and the two tails, marking it out to even those who literally have never heard of Pokemon as something distinct from just a 1:1 cartoon depiction of a bull.
>>
>>37369532
If you were a child during Pokemania, and your parents don't know Jigglypuff, then I'm afraid they didn't love you. Pigglyjuff/wigglypuff/jigglytuff are all ecceptable corruptions.

>Tauros: Definitely can't forget because Ash caught a bunch of them. Always found that strange as a kid.

What's the deal with Stantler's face and tail? Are they based on real deer?

Every regional bird since gen4 does that.

That was basically a win condition for a lot of my playthroughs.
