(Choosing Clefable instead of Elgyem for alien invasion is an interesting choice. I mean if actual alien overlords came and took over the earth, used human kind as a food source AND they looked like Clefable, now that would be terrifying 🙂).

This team will be a dream team based on how much I loved these pokemon, not on how useful each of them are or the entire team is as a battle team.

(By not particular order).
1. Gazer the Watchog. My heroine from my Black2 Blind run. You would never expect a Patrat to be your MVP, but Gazer really was, using one of the most versatile move pools + Return to crush so many opponents by herself, and even slay mighty dragons.
2. Talisman the Starmie. My MVP from my Anti-Ash Yellow run. You practically single-handedly (well, bad metaphor in your case) won me the entire game defeating the majority of threats this game had to offer, including most of the E4 team. Psychic is so OP in gen I.
3. Quake the Hariyama. My one and only MVP of my Sun Blind run (especially after my starter died). Such a powerful pokemon that survived so many battles since the very beginning against all odds, and even miraculously made it alive after the E4 when so many others fell.
4. Scythe the Incineroar. And yet another pokemon from my Blinded by the Sun run, man I really enjoyed this run. Scythe was such a hero, and almost made it all the way to the end until he died saving me from Lusamine in one of the greatest massacres I ever had which I barely recovered from. I learned to love him so much in fact, that it almost made the Litten run my new favorite line for a while (sadly, nostalgia is a powerful force, and so far no pokemon managed to replace the Charmander line. I'm still waiting for the one who does, and in all likeliness it will be a Fire starter).
5. Wazir the Inteleon. Not putting Wazir here will be dishonorable. I don't think Wazir is in the top 6 favorite pokemon I ever had, however his feat is so remarkable I had to put him on this team. After I lost my blind Shield run by losing my entire team to Leon the Unbeatable Champion, on my second Sword attempt I was extremely nervous when I came to fight him again. The battle was extremely tense, I lost 5 of my pokemon to him and was sure I was doomed once more, but then Wazir managed to overcome his last two pokemon including his notorious Charizard who killed most of my team last time, and win me the game. It was a truly glorious moment.
6. Orkhon the Mudsdale. I love Mudsdales, yet for some reason I lost two of them before I finally managed to take Orkhon all the way to the end. Though modest, this Stamina fueled powerhouse crushed everything in its path, such a glorious war horse!

So many other great heroes didn't make it to this list, but are at least remembered in my hall of fame.

Some type redundancies but overall I'd say this is a pretty solid team I'd be proud to use in a pokemon battle with so much glory attached to each of these pokemon.

Well that was fun!

Make a team based on the 6 wonders of the "7 wonders of the ancient world" that sadly no longer exist (Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Temple of Artemis, Statue of Zeus, Colossus of Rhodes, Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus).

This ghost tries to be studious and businesslike, but will squee or keysmash easily. They would love to cuddle every adorable cat in the world.
This had me searching Wikipedia for longer than I'm proud of lsdjfdsjfhjg these are going to be more abstract than just being about historical stone buildings, otherwise I'd put 6 Stonjourner in here xD

Hanging Gardens of Babylon - Gyarados. The place had plenty of waterfalls for Magikarp to use to evolve, and both Gyarados and this place have myths made about them. I'll admit that I struggled with this one though ;p
Temple of Artemis - Lunatone. Artemis was the goddess of the moon, and the temple was described as looking like it was floating on the clouds and keeping the sun at guard. Lunatone also is a floating rock who's the opposite of the sun, so here it goes xD
Statue of Zeus - Thundurus. Zeus and this creature are big chaotic sky-things that shoot thunder. No doubt Thundurus would want a temple in its honour too.
Colossus of Rhodes - Volcarona. The statue was put up to commemorate the sun deity Helios. Volcarona is also associated with the sun, and was commemorated for it in the Relic Castle. I think I even saw a couple of statues in there!
Lighthouse of Alexandria - Ampharos. Would it even be a lighthouse without the adorable Amphy from Johto to light it?
Mausoleum at Halicarnassus - Golurk. The Ground/Ghost type would fit in perfectly in this place - it was a big tomb full of large, ominous, protective (I think) statues.

Next up - your top 6 favourite Pokemon in a team!

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
1. Scizor
2. Gengar
3. Blastoise
4. Yveltal
5. Empoleon
6. Phanpy

All of these are strong Pokemon (except for the obvious one), but I am worried about the defense. Most of these Pokemon are frail and I'm not sure if any of them can take a hit. Maybe Yveltal or Empoleon?

Preferring to operate in the dark, this pokemon is quick to obtain and discard many behaviors.
Goombella - Foongus. They're both Mushrooms. Thats all there is to it.
Koops - Torterra. Turtles. Specifically Koops at the end of his confidence arc.
Vivian - Mismagius. Both are ghosts and witches. yeah.
Adm. Bobbery - Electrode. boom.
Madam Flurrie - Altaria. Clouds. Honestly there's really only like one or two picks for each character here.
DMs. Mowz - Dedenne. Except for her. She's a Dedenne because Dedenne are mice that use their pouches for storing stuff, a perfect fit for a mouse thief.

'Pichu - Pichu (uuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
JigglyPuff - Jigglypuff (uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
Squirtle - Squirtle (UUUUHHHHHHHHHHH)
Mr Game & Watch - Porygon (both are early developments for characters in technology)
Fox - Zoroark (Could also be Thievul, but Zoroark is bipedal like fox, also fox isn't a thief)
Sheik - Greninja (Sneaky ninja characters, all there is to it)

Bowser: Turturnator -Fire Dragon Type Turtle. Yeah.
King K Rool: Feraligatr - Aquatic reptiles with sharp teeth. Krookodile is a close second.
Donkey Kong: Rillaboom - Reject Humanity embrace Jungle Beat
King Dedede: Empoleon -
It just works
Gannondorf: Pangoro - Oh finally a difficult one. Both are heavy physical attackers, and Pangoro is a dark type while Gannondorf is the king of darkness.
Pirranah Plant (technically supposed to be a tie between charizard and incineroar but that would be boring): Victreebell. It's a trap! (bet you haven't seen that meme in a while)

somehow a plant is heavier than 90% of the cast in smash ultimate, including wario, samus, and a literal bear. it's the pipe isn't it. it's probably the pipe.

Top 6 in what way? Highest rated? Most grossing? Personal favorites?
