Top 10 Greatest Pokemon Designs

#4 - Nidoking

If you don't remember Nidoking or don't feel it should be listed here, you obviously weren't one of the earlier Pokemon Fans. Because Nidoking was THE BOSS. Everyone loved this thing, especially after they thought it Earthquake. This thing would Earthquake the hell out of any Pokemon in its path with AMAZING force. It had a lot of power back in the first generation,and even though that mattered, most early trainers just loved this thing for its design. He was THE KING, and who wouldn't want to have a King on their team? And on top of that, its design just screams power, power, and more power. We're sure plenty of First Generation Trainers will remember how Giovanni loved to use Nidoqueen and Nidoking, and the fear it would strike in each of their hearts.

As more generations have come, Nidoking pales in comparsion to some of the newer Hybrid Pokemon, at least where statistics are concerned. Mediocre stats just simply don't do it anymore in the World of Pokemon. However, Nidoking was given a pretty good ability in Sheer Force. With its Special Attack Stat and this ability, Nidoking is really the only Special Attack Sheer Force User in existence - at least one with some power. Nidoking has this little niche, but that still doesn't purpell it into the Pokemon Elites. It stinks to be on the receiving end from ones of its Sheer Force boosted moves like Earth Power, Sludge Wave, Flamethrower or Ice Beam, but they're plenty of Pokemon with even more power. Pokemon like Darmanitan, who is the most popular Sheer Force User, has WAY more power than the King.

Even with its decline in popularity, older Pokemon Trainers will still use Nidoking for nostalgic stake. And of course, they'll run it will Earthquake just for fun. Even really, that's all you could ask for a Pokemon.
