Since we appear to still be on Shinx, I remember my first play-through of 4th gen... kind of. x3 I was always missing my Electrike, but also always played with an Intimidate Shinx-line because it was the only electric type I had found that I wanted to use in that game.. x3 (to temporarily replace my Electrike..)

((Also on Wartortle: I normally don't like the middle stage of the starters based on their looks.. but Wartortle is definitely nice in design. At least that's my opinion.. x3))

Well, let's move on to another.

Cubone! I've always liked the Cubone - Marowak line for it's simple but powerful theme. Probably still one of the most depressing Pokemon to date, and I felt like the Pokemon Tower and Lavender Town was one of the most powerful moments of the original games - possibly one of the only powerful moments to be honest. Pokemon Origins adds some interesting depth to the original story, so if you haven't watched through all of it I highly recommend doing so.

I find it interesting how Marowak is now finally a ghost type too in Alola, given what I know about Kanto, and while I haven't played S&M it seems like they've brought the line back to its roots.

I've always really liked their signature moves too: bone club and bonemerang, not for any particular reason though.

I was never a big fan of the line. One day I'll give it a try and give both Marowak's a shot (once we have the ability to get the Kanto version again)

That being said, I do like the new version. Alolan Marowak is so good. It has its own signature move in Shadow Bone along with others. It might not get STAB with Bonemerang/Earthquake anymore, but Shadow Bone + Flare Blitz together are amazing (the latter especially with Rock Head~)
