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.
>>37360226>King of RBY>Forgettable
>>37360226Stantler is based
>>37360226I forgot you existed
>>37360226>forgetting bouffalantSuch shit taste.
>>37360232>>37360234>>37360237>these mons actually have fansBut why? They're literally just animals. What moves do they learn? Headbutt?
>>37360226Stantler is a pretty cool guy.
>>37360226>forgetting tauroshow underage are you
>>37360249I'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.
>>37360226agree, the most boring designs, literally a cartoony bull bpufalant and deer, wiw what original
>>37360246Stantler 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.
>>37360248I thought Specter was more of a Moth-based?
>>37360226Stantler is in my top 10 favorite Pokemon, how dare you!
>>37360302I 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.
>>37360226>We are all normal typefuck yeah>are very brownfuck yeah
>>37360246Tauros has fans because he used to be an absolute beast in gen 1.
>>37360226Bouffalant 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
>>37360226This kind of Pokemon are my favorite.
>>37360264You were playing Gen 1 wrong
>>37360226Stantler should get illusion as hidden ability.
>>37360226>basically one-to-one copies of real-world four-legged mammalsTauros 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.
>>37360226>Forgetting TaurosOh (You)
>>37362029>Afro>Gold braceletsDats raysis
>That hilariously bad moment when Bogleech spilled his spaghetti and hard over Bouffalant
>>37362029>two-pronged antlers with weird beads in them>giant puffy tail>that fucking noseif all deer were like this i'd be fucking terrified
>>37360226>forgetting about Tauros, the Elder God of Gen 1
Make place bitches!Only real 1:1 copy coming through!
>>37362132Post the webm.
>>37362132literally just a toucan... doesn't even look like a fictional creature with powers, just a regular plain cartoon toucanwhat were they thinking?
>>37360246Tauros has a stupidly large movepool.
>>37362132Yeah, I remember when I saw a toucan superheat its beak and shot seeds and rocks like a machine gun
>>37362219I find it endearing.
>>37362132the "le genwun is nothing but angry dbz eyes" maymay gives me a chuckle because I just remember shit like this, literally just a regular real world toucan with angry toriyama eyes
>>37362097You SHOULD be terrified of deer. Especially deer that can confuse you.
>>37360226they're all great
>>37360226G*d Stantler is so fucking ugly, it should wiped out of the universe along with the fartthief who made it.
>>37360264You'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
>>37364027I remember every pokemon up to gen 6 its not hard
>>37364027I 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.
>>37360265A F R OB R E A K
>>37360226Taurus is Gen 1, the others are just lazy.
>>37360226I love Tauros and Stantler tho
>>37360226I remember Stantler because of what an aggro magnet it was during a playthrough of Colosseum last year.
>>37362435Tucan'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
>>37365521Is height the only thing you can argue?
>>37360226Nah, Tauros was the Gen. 1 god, and I used Stantler in Pokėmon Colosseum; was surprisingly solid.
>>37360264>What the fuck is a Tauros?The best Pokemon in the game that isn't Mewtwo
>>37365746>The most powerful Pokemon in the world is the result of a team of scientists working to create the ultimate form of life>The second most powerful is an angry bull
>>37360294Kinda wish it got Normal/psychic instead of Girafarig. Make it a Normal/dark counterpart instead
>>37360226Tauros 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).>>37362132My angry nigga KABASHI is based too.
>>37362132Toucans are best birbs though, Toucannon is based
>Tauros used Body Slam!
>>37365893>has one the most powerful Pokémon in Kanto>doesn't use it
quit shit talking about our even toed ungulate mons
>>37360246People like Tauros because it skullfucked the meta and then wore its skin as a hood. What it looks like is irrelevant.
>>37364212Which 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>ZapdosThat's the team they used.
>>37365699I'm just saying. Tauros is the size of a bull. Toucannon is fucking 5 feet tall.
>>37366038I'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.
>>37366084How do you know it was grass though?
>>37366084I meant for battling other kids.
>>37366086What else would it be?
>>37360226I remember they exist, if only because of how ugly they all are. Why are ungulates so hideous?
>>37360246>>37360428>>37362231>>37366010dont forget Tauros has a notable gimmick in the anime and is owned by the main protagonist
>>37360226>>37360246>he doesn't knowhttps://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/On_the_Origin_of_Species:_Stantler
>>37362132only 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.
>>37368938That makes its a little better. Still a shit design with a shit type.
>>37362242Why is this the funniest thing I've read all day?
>>37362242how is that in any way communicated through its looks?
>hating on nigger buffalo
>>37364027Now 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
>>37365521Why 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.
>>37369532If 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.
>>37360267Bro, it's like, really angry
>>37360226>Tauros: Definitely can't forget because Ash caught a bunch of them. Always found that strange as a kid.>Stantler: My first 100%IV on GO>Buffalant: This one's my favorite. There was a kid who had hair exactly like him and was an absolute dick. So my best friend and I always used the codeword Buffalant when we were talking about him.
They shit on Serperior
>>37370909>kid when bouffalant existed>BW came out in 2010MODS
>>37370915>12 year olds aren't kids, I'm a big boy! MODS
>>37370938>Coping this hardMODS
>>37360226>he never spent hours at the Kanto safari zone>he never played BW>he doesn't name every Stantler he catches Rudolph as a tradition
What's the deal with Stantler's face and tail? Are they based on real deer?
>>37370748Every regional bird since gen4 does that.
>>37360246>he doesn't know about pre gen 4 Hyper Beam TaurosThat was basically a win condition for a lot of my playthroughs.
