Now, like most times when a region comes out and new Pokemon introduced, I don't always like a lot of the Pokemon. This was true with Purugly. I never liked Purugly until about 1 month ago when I was going through like my 9th playthrough of Explorer's of Sky and allowed a Glameow be the first member of our little team. I've grown to love that Glameow and when he evolved I began to have an odd liking towards Purugly.
This has happened to me a bunch of times before! Either a game, someone's Pokemon character in a story, or the show warms my heart up to those Pokemon I once disliked or never generally thought about. It happened with a Meditite when I fell in love with the JAKKS figure of him and it happened with Grubbin when I happened to catch one in Moon and realize it's beautiful potential and personality.
What about you guys? Have your feelings about a certain Pokemon been changed because of something like this?
