The unusual habit of Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendula’ (weeping giant redwood) produces pendulous side branches with a vigorous upright leader.
This form is much smaller and slower growing than the usual species, so it may suit the smaller garden owner with a taste for something different. These plants always seem to remind me of long necked dinosaurs!
Choosing my favorite region will be hard. However, I will give it my best shot.
Favorite: Hoenn. I loved this game because of the amazing Pokemon you could find. A blue bird with cloud wings? Sign me up! A leafy long-necked flying dinosaur? Loved it! Green gecko? Loved that even more! The fact that the graphics were more amazing than ever and that I could play Pokemon with my older brother for the first time helped. Alpha Sapphire reawakened my love for this generation.
2nd Favorite: Sinnoh. This generation also had some of my favorite Pokemon, including Shinx/Luxio/Luxray. The introduction of different forms caught my eye. Did I really need that other form of Shellos to complete the Pokedex? No. Would I catch it? Of course!
3rd Favorite: Johto. This and Generation 1 nearly tied, but the idea of visiting both regions caught my attention. The sequel wasn’t as isolated as I’d expected (though I’d read about it in a game guide due to impatience and my mother taking it over). This was the farthest I’d gotten in a game at the time, and I saw a Legendary Pokemon for the first time in it. In Soulsilver I loved the following Pokemon, sealing my love.
4th Favorite: Kanto. Don’t get me wrong; I am incredibly grateful for this game and I was surprised that, when thinking out the list, it came so low. A lack of experience playing the game when I started may have influenced it.
5th favorite: Kalos. I was a latecomer to Pokemon X and Y. I love the number of friends your character has that extends beyond the main rival. I felt bad for Red in retrospect; having the only other person his age in Pallet Town be the guy who always insults him must’ve been tough.
6th favorite: Unova. It’s kind of ironic that the region I like the least is the one based on the country where I live. This was the point where I dropped out of Pokemon. I like the idea of making the game a little darker in retrospect with N. Having a game character actually catch and use a Legendary Pokemon not only explains why you can’t catch the other box Legendary in other games, but also makes your rival an actual challenge and forms an interesting plot.
