No megas, no counterparts, no gods, only Normal

Note that Indeedee is depicted twice in the bottom right, in male and female forms.

The megas are done with and we're back to normality. Literally! Today we have the rest of the single stage normal types, after having gone through several already in different polls. This batch doesn't have mega evolutions or counterparts (or finite multiple non-gendered forms), they are entirely alone. But who's the best of them?

Fully evolved 3-stage water: Ludicolo > Kingdra > Azumarill
Mega evolved pseudo-legendary: Mega Metagross > Mega Salamence > Mega Tyranitar
Mega evolved 3-stage: Mega Beedrill > Mega Ampharos >> Mega Gardevoir
Mega evolved 2-stage (XY): Mega Banette > Mega Houndoom > Mega Scizor/Mega Lucario
Mega evolved 2-stage (ORAS): Mega Slowbro > Mega Camerupt > Mega Steelix

Slowbro and Camerupt traded the lead a couple times, but the gen 1 rep wins out in a big reversal from the previous day. Steelix edges out Altaria for third.

First Spinda vote out of 14? ouch, rough competition

although yeah there is a a lot of good choices here

I request affiliated many pipes.

Yeah these are all very bland but that's typical for Normal types, it's in the name!

Guess I could cheat and vote for Ditto, it can simply transform into a better pokemon... but I kinda have a soft spot for Girafarig. A) There isn't enough giraffe representation, and B) palindromes are neat.

I don't kill... but I don't lose either.

Finally back to the good stuff. Stantler and 50% of Indeedee are the lowest tier, but most of them are good for several various reasons.

Not much love for any of these so voted Ditto because of its usefulness

Not to be confused with XIII_minerals.

That being said I voted for Smeargle.

But still, come on guys.

Why is Stantler here? I thought we started taking LA into consideration weeks ago

It's tempting to linger in this moment, while every possibility still exists. But unless collapsed by an observer, they will never be more than possibilities.

Most of these are super dull.

Ditto is great though.

For some reason I always thought girafarig was Normal/Psychic. Not sure why.

No problem!
This is a cute and pop genocide of love!

Girafarig is criminally underrated.

Because it is?

It's Girafarig for me, though I think a bunch of these are decent and wish they got evos or variants or something.

That was just for those topics, outside of the LA specific polls every other topic has been as if Legends didn't exist. Also there was nowhere else to put Stantler and it made sense to use it here (same with Girafarig and Indeedee, there was space on the poll and it's not like there's many other places to put Normal dual types!)

Went for Kecleon, and I was a bit incensed that I couldn't grab one when I was trying to go for an all-lizard team.

Most of these are solid, but Girafarig and Kecleon are my faves.

How paralyzingly dull, boring and tedious!

it's just really hard to imagine pokemon without ditto

You did indeed stab me in the back. However, you are only level one, whilst I am level 50. That means I should remain uninjured.
