Top 10 Favorite Pokemon

Hello interweb, Nate here!  A while ago I mentioned in a post that I was getting a little burnt out on only talking about superheroes and wanted to expand this blog a little.  I have decided, after much consideration, to expand this blog to an overall “geek” blog that will open the doors to more discussion over more topics without completely abandoning superheroes and comics as a whole.  The biggest problem I’m really having is how to reorganize this site to accommodate this change.  I’m trying to think of a new name for this blog as well as a new banner (or maybe change the style of this site to exclude the banner all together?).  But for now, this is a post I’ve actually been wanting to do for years but just haven’t really been able to do it.  So today, here’s my Top 10 Favorite Pokemon!

Now, this list was actually really painful for me to make as I could only pick 10 out of 800+ Pokemon that exist as of Gen VII.  Granted, these are my favorites so I only had to deal with the ones I really like rather than mediocre ones like Pidgey or Rattata.  However this list didn’t take too long to make as I actually looked up a website that helps with creating your top 10 list accurately and quickly that I’d actually recommend trying out as it was quite fun (Pro tip: try picking ONLY one pokemon every time and avoid clicking “pass” button).
