Arguments:
My favorite Pok"mon is PIPLUP.
Piplup is a water type Pok"mon, basic, and Generation four.
http://www.debate.org............

1. Piplup is one of the strongest swimmers
2. Piplup has tons of Self-Pride
3. Piplup is Cute
4. He is adapted to where he lives

1. Piplup is a penguin. Therefore Piplup is a strong swimmer. He is able to dive for 10 minutes at a time to hunt for food. When he evolves into empoleon his fins become so sharp that he can cut through 10 feet of ice with his flippers. Empoleon is one of the fastest swimmers but he is not the fastest. (golduck is)

2. Piplup is very proud of him/herself. He can't walk very well but when he falls, his self pride isn't hurt. In fact he will even puff out his chest. He refuses food from humans because of his pride. His pride has it's flaws, but it's really handy in a battle. It means he will never give up.

3. Piplup look is very cute and unique. Just look at the pictures (I would add links but the take up like 2,000 characters) (Just look up "piplup" in google and look at the images)

4. Survival of the fittest. Piplup is adapted to survive in arctic waters. He lives in very cold areas where there's less of a struggle for food.

Conclusion:
Piplup is my favorite Pok"mon

Con

My favorite Pokemon is DRAGONITE. Dragonite is a dual-type Dragon/Flying Pokemon that's been in the franchise since the original three games (Red/Blue/Yellow), which makes it the original dragon.

I. Dragonite's speed and the Earth

Without getting into the specifics, the distance it takes to travel from any one point around the entire earth to get to the same point is just around 24,901 miles. [1] It's mentioned numerous times in Pokedex entries that Dragonite is capable of circling the Earth in just 16 hours. [2] This means he'd be flying at around a rate of 1,556 miles per hour; this is over twice the speed of sound (itself 768 mph [3])!

II. Dragonite is the best Bro.

In the majority of Pokedex entries (specifically Gold, Pokemon Stadium 2, Ruby/Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, HeartGold, B/W, B2/W2, Y, and OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire), it's mentioned to rescue individual people and lost ships and the crews of shipwrecks safely to shore. [2]

III. Just look at it:

then don't join the debate, and make a poll. I really like to see peoples reasons for why it's their favorite pokemon. In opinions people don't give reasons. But it's a debate

A little note here, don't get me wrong, I love me some Pokemon, but this still lacks the emphasis of a debate.

I feel as though this would be better suited for the opinion section as this is not a debate. By definition, a debate is an argument over a controversial topic that can be argued by both sides. This topic has no argument. What are we debating? Nothing really. We're just explaining why we like a Pokemon or not, which sounds more like a report if you ask me.

I'm just saying that if you're going to put something in the debate section, at least make sure it's an actual debate.
