Venom is cooler than Spider-Man. Shadow Hedgehog is cooler than Sonic the Hedgehog. And twisted metal: Black is better than any other game in Twisted Metal.
Because everything is better when it’s black.
The same goes for the brilliant Pokémon. Especially if those colors turn black. And on that list, I’m going to see which Pokémon are better off crossing over to the dark side.
I will add a personal rule: The main color of Pokémon should be black. So there will be no Pokémon that is already black with the new highlights (Sorry Umbreon, Luxray and Zoroark).
Now let’s find out why black is best!
15. Oricorio Baile Form
If there’s one color combination I prefer, it’s black and red.
And when I see red, I want it painted black.
The shape of the Baila Oricorio is perfect for these nails. Of course she just swapped the red and black colors of her usual drawing. But it captures a very different emotion.
Oricorio has evolved from a fiery Latin dancer to a wiser and more mature Pokémon that still has fire in it.
So I think Orikorio is the perfect Pokémon to start that list.
If you asked your parents what Pokémon they knew, they would say: Pikachu!
But if you’d asked for a second, Sharizard would have followed you right away.
And while many of them would put Sharizar at the top of the list, I disagree with them for two reasons.
1 : Mega Charizard X looks better without the shine.
And secondly: Sharizar had a nice second generation purple sheen that I like much better.
However, it is still very bright.
While the evolved form is known for its amazing wing pattern, the Spewpa is easily forgotten.
But for some reason this little thing here caught my attention.
Of course, his black head just switched color palettes with his white dress. But he told me a story.
Instead of a caterpillar in a cocoon, I see a desperado in a dark poncho who has seen the worst of what the Wild West has to offer.
It may seem like the black sheep of the list, but I like it.
And speaking of the black sheep….
It’s a black sheep! Look how cute!
* Excuse me. I’m a little excited.
But can you blame me? Look at this!
Vulu is already very cute, but her shiny shape gives a glimpse of her cute little mouth. One of the best Pokémon additions to the sword and shield is shiny wool.
11. Guest sand
I always like it when the Pokémon design is based on the real world.
This is the Sandigast genius. The transition from normal sand to black sand is actually a black sand beach that can be found all over the world, including Hawaii, where the Alolan region is located.
Not to mention that the blue and yellow accents of the pebbles and shovels add a little spice to the design! All this makes Sandygast very cute and very interesting to shine.
If you look at a normal fur shirt, it looks like the white fur is made of black and that’s it.
But the real fun comes with all the different hairstyles you can give Furfrou!
They give Pokémon a whole new look. Also, all the accents of bright colors are much nicer on a black coat.
My favorite drawings are Diamond and Dandy, which is good because Furfrou is a dandy and brilliant Pokémon.
I love anything to do with Pokémon Tapu.
Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Fini, and Tapu Bulu are all powerful Pokémon that guard four different islands in the Alola region.
They are designed upside down on the totem pole, and changing their primary color to black gives them each a woodsy look.
This not only makes them more resistant, but it also improves their various details better than their original design. Since the same effect is achieved with all four, I’ll take them all at face value.
I love wrestling and I love the Hawks.
So when Howlucha was introduced, I was excited.
It really represented Rey Mysterio’s heroic luchador-style theft.
The brilliant Hawlucha does just the opposite: It combines black with dark purple and blood red.
This gives Hawlucha a much more serious tone that matches a very good type of Pokémon battle. Also, the shiny hawlucha is one of the few shiny things you see in the anime.
He plays the villain in a local play and adds another one of my hobbies to a Pokémon.
Resolute Eye has always been a great ranger or thug character.
They are Pokémon that hide in the forest and steal a caravan of rich people to feed the local poor village. But with his eyes, the brown feathers turn black, a bit like Desideway’s cape, and his face turns bright red.
This gives him a new air of mystery and allows Reshidue to begin his ghostly typing.
Basically, we go from Robin Hood to Phantom of the Opera. And I couldn’t agree more.
I thought the decision to give Kyogre and Groudon primary forms in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire was brilliant.
It shows how old and powerful these Pokémon are.
And the brilliant Primal Kögre perfectly captures the mystery of the deep sea. The black color combined with the golden light emitted by the lines surrounding the body gives the feeling of a primitive creature carrying the wisdom of hundreds of centuries.
The brilliant Original Kiogre deserves to be a legendary Pokémon.
One of my favorite Pokémon derived games is Pokémon Conquest.
And probably the coolest moment in this game was when you met Nobunaga and his genius Raikuase.
I had never seen anything like it before and it was truly terrifying! But replacing Raiquaza’s green color with black supports the idea that Raiquaza is the Pokémon in charge of the Hoenn region, and will do anything to keep the peace.
Brilliant Raikuase is a Pokémon worthy of Nobunaga.
4. Mega Gardevoir
Mega Gardevoir exudes a Cinderella impression: beautiful and innocent.
I want to take her to the dance and give her the night of her life! But their shiny shape provokes a different reaction in me.
The white dress was now all black, and her hair had changed from pastel green to ice blue.
What was once innocent and sweet now seems almost melancholy. Yet there is a grace and beauty here that few Pokémon can match.
Shining Pumpkinboo takes me back to simpler times.
Back then, my mom would drop me off at the mall and I would go out with friends, go to Hot Topic and immerse myself in anime and nightmares for Christmas.
Pumpkaboo’s black and purple glitter really represents all the kids of the late 90s and early 2000s who were dark and boring, but really quite young and trying to find their place.
Plus, it’s one of the cutest sequins ever.
Where the genius of Primal Kjogr was enigmatic, the genius of Primal Grudon is simply frightening.
Primal Groudon was cool when he was red. But I felt like there was too much to do and I couldn’t focus on all the details. The transition from red to black skin really draws attention to the lava swimming in your veins.
It gives Primal Grudon a greater sense of danger than any other Pokémon here.
Primal Grudon is a dormant volcano waiting to erupt.
We started with black and red and ended with black and red.
I thought Huxor looked really cool. Actually, it’s one of my favorite dragons!
But Haxorus has gone from cool to one of the most intimidating Pokémon in the game.
Its entire body is black and grey, only its claws and axe-shaped jaws are blood red.
Gaxor now looks like a combination of T-Rex and Dark Knight.
And it’s easily my favorite black straw in any Pokémon.
