Based on looks alone, it's tough to top Aggron: it's a giant, metallic-armored Triceratops/Godzilla mashup that now has an even more badass Mega Evolution. It's really kinda unfair that's its hoarding so much badass design for itself while Smeargle is just sitting over here PAINTING SHIT WITH ITS TAIL. C'mon, Aggron, learn to share a little.
Starting from cute little Torchic, its a little confusing how Game Freak arrived at Blaziken - human-looking ninja chicken with pillars for legs. But who cares, because - yet again - the Fire-type starter ends up being pretty badass (and, according to you voters, way better than all the other starters - again). It probably helps that all of the recent Pokemon X & Y players were gifted a free Torchic that they evolved into a Blaziken that came with its Mega Evolution stone (thus depriving poor Klefki of a spot on your team). Even people who aren't very pro-Blaziken have to admit its Speed Boost ability tips the scales pretty heavily in its favor, although the fact it has chicken legs for arms should make it a lot less coordinated than it is.
I think if you had to guess what would have been the winner of a Pokemon vote for generation 3, and you were told your options were "a giant, flying, legendary dragon" or "anything else," you'd probably have gone with the dragon. Lo and behold, the greatest Pokemon of Generation 3 is (reminder: according to voters, all you Shedinja-defenders) Rayquaza - the mascot of Pokemon Emerald and the guy who's forced to break up fights between legendary monsters vying for domination of the region. Maybe that's what makes Rayquaza so great - it's a superpowerful beast of a Pokemon, but it really just wants everyone to chill out and get along.
Basically, Rayquaza's your friend who stops you from getting into a drunken brawl at the bar and takes you to Taco Bell to cool off. The world needs more Rayquazas.
Now that we're done deciding which was the greatest Generation II Pokemon of all-time, it's time to move on to Generation IV. Get your votes in now and help us decide...
