{reshiram} +1 / {kyurem} -1
Not only typewise, but even in gray, I'll take my chances with my beloved Reshiram. Kyurem is hard to train and doesn't have a good moveset. Kyurem's only perk is the high amount of HP.

Cool as all :censored: . This thing is a beast in battle. / What is this? It looks like a gray walnut with legs, not a dragon.

Kyurem up, Feebas down.

Kyurem looks awesome, has a great type hybrid, and I can't wait to finally get my hands on one. Feebas, meanwhile, is a harder-to-train version of Magikarp, that is even harder to evolve, and isn't even a Dragon... My mission is to weed out the non-Dragons included for some reason in this PEC.

Here we go!

{dragonair} / {gible}

D-air is one of my all time favorites (about #4) / Gible is more of a 'derp' poke. Also, in one of the few anime episodes I bothered to watch, Ash gave up one of his actually good pokes (gliscor) to make way for "OH MY GOSH DRAGON TYPE!!!!1" So yea

{kingdra} Up / {feebas} Down

Kingdra is one of my favourite dragon type Pokes.
I think that Feebas is a waste of pixels, to be honest.

That depends on your definition of "Dragon". I want more variety than a gallery of Dragon-types. Arbok, Feebas, Treecko, and Scrafty are included for being in the Dragon egg group, Lugia is because it's somewhat dragon-like and Kingdra is lonely.

Lugia is a great pokemon, even HGSS, it is still a great Dragon, regardless of it's typing, and what AEP says, it is better than Palkia. Palkia is just ugly and pointless. It is like Sinnoh's Zekrom.

Da Rules clearly wrote:
1. Each person can vote ONCE per round.
3. No changing votes!

*Ahem* I see a contradiction.

Also: I took out "per day" in Rule 1 to avoid further confusions, but still keep this in mind:
Official PEC Rules wrote:
2. Limit your participation to one post per day per PEC. The last thing we need is to have a PEC increase by three pages in one hour. Imagine some poor kid who votes and happily goes to bed, and then waking up to find that the final round is already up.


Also: I'll stop quote abuse now.

{dragonite} / {feebas}

Dragonite has always been my favorite Dragon pokemon, and will likely be my consistent immunity vote this entire competition. The fully evolved form of the only true Dragon-type family from Gen 1, it holds a special place in my heart. / Feebas is the most annoying thing to catch EVER, especially in Emeraly where you have to actually pay attention when you're fishing. Kill it. Arbok is next, though, as an un-dragon-like snake. (Würms don't count in my book.)

Edit: Also, how did you choose these 20? It seems like there are some glaring omissions. Latios (offense > defense)? Rayquaza? Shelgon AND Bagon, but no Salamence? Vibrava but not Flygon? And why Feebas but not Milotic, or Treecko but not Sceptile? I feel like Hoenn got the shaft; only one of their 5 or 6 awesome dragon types/dragon egg group pokemon got included.

There's some noticeable holes in your question: who decided that offense is always better than defense? Only popular final evolutions and uber legendaries are worthy to be voted? You didn't complain that I have Kingdra and Haxorus but not Horsea and Fraxure? Because I picked seven preevolutions and not-too-popular Dragons from Hoenn means I'm neglecting it - which is in fact one of my favorite regions? Who decides which are "awesome" Dragons?
Before starting this PEC I decided not to let it be dominated by super popular dragons (*coughCharizardcoughDialgacoughGyaradoscough*). Instead, I spread my candidates between some basics, some teenagers, some fully-evolved, and some legendaries. Few popular Dragons (i.e. D-nite, Lugia) and mostly the weak, the overlooked, the physically or competitively unappealing - they, too, deserve a chance to shine.

A host is not obliged to appeal to his audience - especially not to every single one. I do, however, feel obliged to make myself clear. I did not mean to offend anyone, but if anyone do feel so, I believe it to be a subjective matter.

Also, I might have consciously or subconsciously left out Sceptile and Flygon and Milotic because I knew I'll be forever traumatized seeing people flaming my favorite Pokemon but of course I'm not going to admit that anywhere.

Now that's over, keep the votes coming!

Well, since I voted twice on accident last time, I'll just use my last vote that was deleted.
{lugia} +1/ {palkia} -1
Lugia is a great dragon, regardless of what AEP said last round. Palkia looks horrible and doesn't even look like a dragon. It is like the Sinnoh version of Zekrom. Lugia is amazing throughout all of the games that it appears in.

Latias is pretty awesome.

I said nothing about Lugia! It is not a Dragon, yes, but a Legendary Poke is one for a reason. Personally, Aeroblast is awesome, especially because of the sound that played with it in GSC! :P Now I will (slightly) contradict the above statement when I vote Lugia down [not right now], because it still is not a Dragon-type.

In all fairness, I did forget about the Dragon Egg group. I'm sorry that I did not think about that, but when you have done as much analysis as I have on Types of Pokemon (not involving Eggs), that's how I think about them.

Now that I hopefully explained myself, my vote for Round 2...

Kyurem up / {treecko} down

Kyurem is still awesome, and I don't even have one! Treecko, while perhaps my main Hoenn starter, is not fitting to be (in my mind) still in this PEC, due to its typing. Not only that, but it got nerfed by Nintendo not to pick a Dragon or Flying hybrid when it evolved, like the other two starters from Hoenn. Sorry, Treecko, thanks for the memories.

AEPMT ;) 8-) :mrgreen:

Seriously, I still have no idea why people make so much fuss over "Omigosh even though that's a perfectly fine Pokemon that I like it's not dragon-like enough so I'll boot it"
"Dragon" is not a strict criterion used to judge these Pokes, but more of a theme used to pick them.
Also imo just saying "that Pokemon is awesome" and "I don't like this" is not good explanation to support your points.
*SHORT RANT ENDS HERE*

SO. Keep voting!

For one thing, I've already voted. For another, I'm curious. Did you decide to take out so many Pokemon? I don't think they were technically eliminated...

Fluffy cloud-dragon-bird thing that nearly swept my team in Pokémon emerald. 2 DDs and then EQ. Only a couple of lucky critical hits saved my nuzlocke challenge/Never liked it , (probably) never will. Losing nearly, if not, all battles in the anime didn't do it any favours either.

{arbok} / {dragonite}

Arbok has always been one of my favorite Poison types, and has a really cool design. Not to mention one sacrificed himself to save my starter in my Fire Red Nuzlocke. We will never forget you Farim!

On the other hand, Dragonite is big, ugly, and now spams Hurricane. I'd prefer the abomination to be eliminated as soon as possible. Gible, you're next! :twisted:

@AEPMT: Hehe, I just left out the ones that have no votes at all from the scoreboard. I shall not abandon my little dragons! But if that's confusing I can fix that :P

@DragoBoy: Indeed. That fluffy bird alone makes Winona an actually tough Gym Leader...without Ice Beam (or a good Poke to use it since you're nuzlocking) it can sweep about EVERYTHING if you let it dance for a while. I suppose you lost some comrades?

@Farim: I only learned who you are a couple minutes ago, but I'm touched by your great act of devotion and self-sacrifice *sob* Rest in eternal peace!
