I have my interview tomorrow. In the mean time, enjoy this Pokemon questionnaire and possibly fill it out yourself if you feel like doing it. (I'm not sure who made it though.)
1: Favorite Pokémon?
I'm not sure. I don't really have a favorite. I like a lot of them including Meowth, Chikorita, Sceptile, Skitty, Buoysel, Archen, Mienshao, Helioptile, and Carbink.
2: Favorite type?
I don't really have a favorite type. It would be easier to ask me what my favorite Pokemon of each type was. I do however tend to like the designs of the grass type and water type Pokemon.
3: Favorite legendary?
Ho-oh and Kyogre
4: Favorite region?
Kalos for the overall aesthetics and design
Johto for the exploring
5: Favorite move?
6: An item you always have in your bag?
PokeBalls because you never know when something good is going to jump out at you.
7: Favorite gym leader?
Giovanni, Jasmine, Flannery, Roxanne
Past Gen 3, none of the gym leaders really stood out to me in the same way. (I honestly don't even remember any of them and I just played X and W2.)
8: Favorite Elite Four member?
Lorelei and Karen
9: Favorite generation?
Again, tough choice. I'd probably have to say Gen 1 and 2 because I like most -if not all- of the Pokemon designs.
10: Favorite Pokémon game?
I can't decide... It would probably have to be the following: Gold, Sapphire, X
I can definitely say that B2/W2 was my least favorite game because of all the forced tutorials and structure that limited exploring.
11: Favorite starter?
I always pick the grass starters, but I think Chikorita would have to be my favorite because it never left my party when I was playing through Gold as a child. It never left the party in HeartGold either.
12: Favorite Eeveelution?
Flareon, Leafeon, Espeon
13: Favorite human character?
Misty and Brock
14: Favorite villain?
Cassidy and Butch (as a kid I always found it amusing how they always tried to one-up Jessie and James), Archie, but Giovanni is by far the coolest to me.
15: Favorite unown form?
I'm not a huge fan of Unown, but I guess L or J?
16: First lv. 100?
My ninjask Jacques on Pearl.
17: First game and first Pokémon?
I got Pokemon Gold and Yellow for Christmas at the same time so my first Pokemon were Chikorita and Pikachu respectively.
18: If you could have any real Pokémon in real life, which would it be and why?
It would definitely have to be a Pokemon that is close to the Earth.
*Carbink because I want to get my PhD in mineralogy or petrology so it seems appropriate to have a Pokemon that looks like a kimberlite. (Maybe it would even help me find cool minerals!)
*Crustle because it is a crab with a chunk of lithosphere on its back. It would be a good partner for soil profiling.
Or maybe one of the following:
Swoobat so that I could name it Okenite.
*Honchkrow because he or she would have a good eye for the shiny rocks and minerals. Plus, people would be threatened by a badass dark crow so they wouldn't bother me if I was walking around alone at night.
*Buoysel as a pet. I love weasels.
19: If you were a gym leader, what would your specialty be?
Rock Pokemon because geology.
20: Team Rocket, Aqua, Magma, Plasma, Galactic?
I like Team Rocket the best. Although I hate the redesigns of the Aqua and Magma uniforms for ORAS, I still like the original Team Aqua and Magma.
I'm making a Plasma uniform for my Halloween costume, but I still think they are pretty lame and I would have taken them a lot more seriously if they were in Kalos instead. Their design would have at least fit in better with the old European themes. Galactic and Flare just made me facepalm. I couldn't take either of them seriously.
21: Favorite Battle Frontier activity?
I never got into the Battle Frontier.
22: Favorite battle strategy?
Setting up traps and provoking the opponent to switch out by switching in different Pokemon with various roles.
23: Favorite professor?
Oak and Juniper
24: Favorite rival?
Gary and the one red-haired kid from GSC. I liked that they were complete jerks because it was a lot more fun to name them accordingly.
25: If you could live in any Pokémon city, which would it be?
Anistar City or one of the warmer Kalos towns.
26: Favorite ball design?
I never put much thought into this. Maybe Quick Ball or one of the blue-colored ones?
27: Favorite spin-off game?
Pokemon Puzzle League Challenge
28: If you lived in the Pokémon world, would you be a trainer, gym leader, breeder, professor, team member or something else?
Probably a professor if that means I'd be doing research—Or a team member for Magma. I'd assume Maxie would be in need of lots of geologists to help him with his plan. Maybe Aqua would too, but I bet they'd be more interested in Marine Biologists or Oceanographers. xD
29: Describe your ideal six-Pokémon team.
Mawile, Politoed, Kingdra, Mienshao, Garchomp, Goodra or something of that sort. The team would need to be able to support itself.
30: How old were you when you got into Pokémon?
Five. I grew up with Pokemon from the day it was first aired in the '90s.
31: Least favorite Pokémon other than Garbodour?
Klink, KlinkKlank whatever, Vanillish, Vanillux, Diggersby
32: That one Pokémon that always ends up on your team?
Meganium or Mienshao
33: Favorite show episode?
I am not sure, but when I was little I really liked the Ghost of Maiden's Peak one, the Scyther and Electabuzz rivalry one, and the Breeding Center one where Cassidy and Butch tricked a bunch of people into leaving their Pokemon at some sketchy place.
34: Favorite Pokémon card?
I really liked those Neo Destiny(?) Shiny Pokemon cards. Maybe Shining Raichu? It was so cool how they did the metallic foil on the Pokemon.
35: What Pokémon do you think is most like you?
Murkrow because it likes shiny things?
36: What Pokémon do you think your friends/family members would have in real life?
37: What Pokémon would your favorite celebrity have in real life?
Omfg... What Pokemon would Indira Vladić have... Whimsicott? Maractus? Spinda? Loudred or Ludicolo? She would probably own Pokemon that like to dance, joke around, and/or be loud. xD
38: Ever used a cheating device, such as Gameshark or Action Replay? Was it worth it?
When I was little yes but only to do things like walk through walls (for the lulz) and get starter Pokemon that I couldn't otherwise obtain without trading. At the time it was worth it because everybody I knew picked the same starter Pokemon as me and/or didn't live nearby. Plus, we were all really little so it was up to our parents to arrange playdates. I also never used the device to level up or get crazy stats because even as a kid, I knew that was totally lame.
39: Most treasured Pokémon?
I treasure them all.
40: If you could put one thing into Black 2 and White 2, what would it be?
How about if I could take out one thing from B2W2... No mandatory tutorials or construction on every single route! D:
41: Least favorite human character?
Harley (May's rival was on the show)
42: Least favorite generation?
Generation 5. Something about that generation's designs and themes just didn't catch my attention in comparison to the other five sets.
Ice cream cone, gears, alien things, dragons...nope. I did like Archen though.
43: If you could make up your own Pokémon, what would it be like? What type would it be and what moves would it learn? I'd probably make a rock Pokemon based on some mineral or geologic concept. It would learn Stealth Rock and Dazzling Gleam.
Or perhaps I would make a Peacock bush Pokemon or a Flamingo Pokemon.
44: Do you ever EV train and/or IV breed?
Yes. That's pretty much all I do after I beat the Elite 4.
45: Ever attempted a Nuzlocke run? Did you succeed?
No. I'd rather use my time to EV train and IV breed, especially since it's a lot easier to do in Gen 6.
46: Would you approve of a sixth generation?
I already approve of it much more than the fifth.
47: If you could create your own Pokémon game, what would it be like?
I'm not sure. At the very least, it would involve traveling to multiple regions.
48: Favorite Pokémon movie?
The first Pokemon movie, Jirachi movie, and I really liked watching the Latias and Latios movie in Japanese.
49: Own any Pokémon toys/merchandise?
50: Favorite Pokémon memory.
Probably pretending to be Pokemon at recess in 2nd grade -AND- collaboratively sneaking out of bed after midnight at my grandma's house to play the RSE contests with cousins using flashlights and link cables under the blankets. xD
