Default Girliest Pokémon Team?

So I recently got my girlfriend, a work colleague and my friend's girlfriend to start playing Pokémon. Naturally, they're all playing as girls and the one thing each of them has asked me, is; what six monsters would make the girliest team, which could actually be classed as competitive?

They're all playing Black or White and I believe they all mean "In Game." My thoughts are as follows, but I'd love to see your opinions and teams.


Stoutland

What kind of high class, uptown girl would leave home without her purse-puppy? Stoutland boasts some okay stats and some decent STAB choices for dealing some damage.


Swoobat

All teams need a flier and this be it. Flying and Psychic. I just think it fits and that it certainly has its uses.


Lilligant

A beautiful Grass type. Perfectly powerful and girly.


Mienshao

A speedy fighting type that certainly will look like it belongs.


Victini

Not too hard to get a hold of, nice stats and pretty darn cute. I subbed Chandelure for this guy as my girlfriend refuses to move him from her team.


Jellicent

A defensive type which can pack a punch with the element this team is missing. Say hello to this teams water type.

So there's my idea of a girly B/W team which will carry the user a fair way. Your thoughts?

I'm not entirely sure about Chandelure and Jellicent but my thoughts are Swasbuck and Audino possibly in there in a team.

As for starters, Snivy out of the three seems the most feminine to me.

Swoobat

Lilligant/Whimsicott

Either or here, for a beautiful Grass type. I would personally go Lilligant over Whimsicott, but I am male, so my opinion doesn't really count.


Mienshao

A speedy fighting type that certainly will look like it belongs.


Chandelure

A special attacking powerhouse with a dual type that makes it stand out even more. Very powerful and in my opinion, very feminine.


Jellicent (Couldn't find the moving Pink sprite)

A defensive type which can pack a punch with the element this team is missing. Say hello to this teams water type.

I agree with nearly all of those, except for Chandelure, and maybe Stoutland. You could through in other things like Swanna, Gothitelle, Cinccino, Liepard, Leavanny, Emolga, Alomomola, and maybe Mandibuzz. Just depends on what they like. Each of them work reasonably well, so meh.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. And although there were girlier choices out there, I thought my choices produced a bit more variety/covered more types while maintaining the feminine feel.

Thanks for the Sprite, Gofre... I was looking for the animated one, but couldn't find it anywhere...

I always thought that certain Pokemon should be Female or Male only just by the way they look. If they have Female or Male sounding names, (like SlowBro, SlowKing, GeoDude, SeaKing, etc) which have a female gender) that should make them one gender only too.

Forgive me for sounding sexist. I'm not. I'm all for equality of the sexes. In some professions and tasks, women are just as good as men if not more. It's just that some of the Pokemon images were not as clearly thought out in regards to their names and appearances with gender in mind.

I found the animated Female Jellicent... You just type _f before the .gif for the male Sprite.

Back on topic; I swapped out Chandelure for Victini. My girlfriend and my best friend's girlfriend both adore him, so it made sense to do that as the swap.

In regards to getting rid of Stoutland, I am torn between Cinccino or Emolga. Please feel free to post your girliest team ideas. I'd love to see some.

Take out Stoutland, Swoobat and Chandelure and add Gothitelle, Cinccino and Virizon

This would be true if not for the fact that the english names were NOT thought up at the same time as the concepts, and most of the Japanese names are gender neutral.

Example:

English: Mr. Mime
Japanese: Barrierd

The English localization team likely had no idea that G/S and genders were already in the works at the time and just looked for whatever would appeal to children in the west.

English: Slowbro
Japanese: Yadoran

Note from bulbapedia: Yadoran may be taken to mean 宿らん, to not lodge/dwell. It is also possible that the yado comes from 宿借り yadokari, hermit crab, or 宿主 yadonushi, (parasitic) host. Also, 鈍感 donkan means thickheaded or solid, and 鈍 don means slow, dull, or stupid.

No gender connotation there.

A few of the Japanese names do refer to the word "King" though, like Yadoking.

English: Geodude
Japanese: Ishitsubute

The Japanese name means a stone that throws stones. Tsubute is a throwing stone, ishi is a stone. There is no gender connotation.

What does this have to do with anything in the thread?


On topic:

Lilligant or Whimsicott is a definite feminine choice. There is also Liepard, Leavanny, Maractus even Zoroark.

Well, I say...



Serperior's da beast. He/she/it looks very feminine for a snake Pokemon. The only feminine Coil User.

Or a Volcarona if you want Special.
