I'm Dan. I'm going to be a Pokémon master some day (see below).

I'm compiling a mini list of the Pokémon that would make up my top five (well, actually seven) ultimate badass party members. No, Pikachu isn't on my list. 

5. The Original Starters

Ok, so right off I'm kinda cheating by grouping three pokemon together.

Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur were the first interaction you had as a new member of the Pokémon training world. They were your first friend *crying face*.

Not only did you have to pick one of the Pokémon as a companion, but you got to watch them grow into absolute beasts as they evolved into their final form. As water, fire, and plant/earth type Pokémon, they gave you the start you needed in a cruel world of fighting and training wild beasts.

I think we all have a soft spot for the Original Three. I still have trouble choosing who my favourite is.

4. Cubone

He’s awesome!!

He has a skull helmet and the most realistic colour scheme of any Pokémon. He carries a bone club and has a bad attitude. Who wouldn’t want a Cubone as a pet?

Let me break it down simply for you: He's the pokemoniast Pokémon to ever Pokémon the land of Pokémon. 

3. Haunter

I always imagined that having a ghost at my dispersal would be awesome. You would become accustom to scary things.

Wouldn’t it be cool to have a Pokémon that unleashed an immense amount of fear in your opponent? Haunter is edgy and has the ability to do serious damage.

Haunter hides in very dark places, where it plots to take the life of the next living thing that comes near it. It silently stalks its victim and steals its life force with a lick from its gaseous tongue, which inflicts convulsions that persists until the victim dies.

Overall, he’s scary and that's what counts...right?

2. Mewtwo

He’s a scientifically created alien-thing with a bad attitude.

Mewtwo was created after years of horrific gene splicing and DNA engineering experiments based on Mew. It is said to have the most savage heart among all Pokémon. It lacks compassion and strikes fear into its enemy with cold, glowing eyes. Because it was engineered to be the ultimate in battle, it can only think of defeating its foes.

IT CAN ONLY THINK OF DEFEATING ITS FOES!!

As if you wouldn’t want to have a Mewtwo in your arsenal of killer Pokémon!

1. Mimikyu

If you read my blog, then you already know what I think about Mimikyu.

He has taken the number one spot on my list mainly because it’s the first new Pokémon to really stand out to me as unique and not ridiculous in nature.

Harsh. But Mimikyu.
