Poké Polls - Fondest Pokémon Memory

Thanks to the wonderful Fabong for the banner.
Hello and welcome to Poké Polls! Each Wednesday and Saturday there will be a different topic based on the Pokémon universe! The polls will never be based off of two Pokémon (such as Gengar vs Alakazam) as Doof's already covering that.

To vote, just post your answer in the thread (and give a reason if you want to). Topics change each Wednesday and Saturday evening.

Voting closes each Wednesday and Saturday at 9PM,

Most Recent Poll
Next topic is Fondest Pokémon Memory. This could be when you caught your first ever shiny, or when you first launched up your first ever Pokémon game! I'll change the poll more regularly from now on... Promise.

Cynthia's my favourite champion but as long as Alder doesn't win I am content.

Alder intrigues me most as a champion so I vote him.
My order would be: Alder > Steven > Iris > Green > Wallace > Cynthia > Red > Diantha > Lance

Red and Cynthia are leagues above the rest, but out of those two... errrrr...

I'll say Red, his battles are just more iconic.

I like to think that N is informally recognized as a champion.

Anyway, I'll vote for Alder.

Bulbapedia doesn't seem to count N as champion. Personally, I don't see him as a Champion either.

Champion by champion breakdown:
Blue - okay I guess, good music
Lance - did the whole "champion/leader actually doing his job" thing three gens before everyone started making a fuss about it, also a cool guy with brilliant music
Red - silent badass, also has the same brilliant music as Lance
Steven - eh he was okay, good music again
Wallace - never played Emerald so idk
Cynthia - first woman champion, so props for that, also an interesting/mysterious character throughout the story and has that classic piano intro and good battle theme
Alder - I don't really remember much about him other than he got his angel delight handed to him by N
Iris - not great tbh, like Alder she's not that memorable and she has by far the worst champion battle theme
Diantha - pretty average
Overall I'd say Lance is the best. As I mentioned above, he was one of the first champions/leaders to have something of an actual role in the story* and pretty much acts like you'd expect a champion to - a badass guy who goes around investigating shenanigans like the Lake of Rage incident and beating up the bad guys ("you're in my way? Lol Dragonite go wreck that Rocket scrub"). Then of course there's his music, which in its various forms is one of my favourite pieces of video game music ever.

*as a side note whilst I'm thinking on, everyone seems to forget that gen 2 had some decent steps towards giving leaders more of a personality and incorporating them into the story. There was Whitney's tantrum, Jasmine's stint in the lighthouse caring for the Ampharos, Clair with her superiority complex (or really just another tantrum) and Lance's aforementioned badassery. I'm not saying it was as well implemented as gen 5's attempts, but it was still there.

Changing voting deadline to Wednesday 7PM as a week per topic seems a tad too long.

It's hard to decide between Lance and Cynthia... but that piano though; Cynthia definitely takes the edge.

Cynthia.
When you decide to make a female champion for once, you don't just throw in some boring fashion freak like diantha. You go in guns blazing with a garchomp weilding badass with the best champion music till date. I mean why else did smash bros remix her theme and none of the others?
Listened to lance's theme since everyone was talking it up. It's as boring as I remember.
scratch that, the b/w2 version is much better. Still subpar though
I think we can all agree that i`m a great asset to the human race.

Tight between Steven and Cynthia, but I'll go with the former if just for having an awesome Metagross.
