I'm not familiar with many Pokémon beyond Gen IV; these lists are always tough because you have multiple favorites of a single type(my second-favorite Pokémon behind Raichu is Electivire).

I am curious to see what people's favorite Pokemon are. On a Digimon-based fan forum. Do you think it would skew more towards the 'Digimon-esque' designs? Certainly Vaioumon's seems to, with a lot more 'ferocious'-looking and high-detail designs. And Sovereign's includes Zangoose, which always struck me as one of the most Digimon-esque Pokemon designs.

I think I skew more towards the 'cute' Pokemon designs, with a particular focus on the canine-like ones. So I doubt I'd share many favorites with the majority of Digimon fans.


Fire: Arcanine
Water: Spheal
Grass: Rowlett
Electric: Manectric
Psychic: Lugia
Ice: Ninetales (Alolan)
Dragon: Rayquaza
Dark: Mega Absol
Fairy: Whimsicott

Normal: Eevee
Fighting: Lucario
Flying: Articuno
Poison: Poipole
Ground: Mudsdale
Rock: Rockruff
Bug: Shedinja
Ghost: Mimikyu
Steel: Solgaleo

Favorite type overall: Fire has the highest number of designs I like, Ice has more of my favorites. Poison has the least of both.

I also enjoy the cuter designs, often choosing unevolved forms over the evolved ones simply for the sake of being cute. So we've got that preference in common.

My favorite type is Normal, and least favorite is probably Rock.

I decided these by their primary typing, and by what is most aesthetically pleasing to me, though a lot are ones that I enjoyed using in game.

Yeaaaah, imma be a furry.

There were a couple other Pokémon I wanted to put here, but these are my top favorites overall. My favorite type would be Electric as that has the most Pokémon that I like within the group.

I like all Pokemon, so it can be a tad hard to choose favorites...



But I managed. There are some honorable mentions, but we'd be here all day if I did that.

I suppose my favorite Type overall is Fairy, considering that there are five of them on here... it's weird saying that, because I'd usually say Water; I always choose Water type starters. But ever since 6th Gen I've had two Fairy Types on my team, with the exception of one Fairy for AS. It's somewhat conscious-- it helps that Popplio's a Starter for SUMO/USUM, and I like quite a few of the Gen 7 dual typed Fairies, I suppose.

I loooove Ghost types most of all! My #1 favorite Pokemon is... a really close tie between Banette and Mimikyu. Also for Steel type, some days I might substitute Mawile for Aegislash, who gets points for being a Ghost type and for being actually competitively viable.

Design wise, I tend to prefer the more weird and out there monsters, just like with Digimon. And with all monster designs to be honest!

As it turns out my favorite Pokemon have a tendency to be dual type Pokemon, I hope this does not disqualify them... unfortunately the image generator used in this thread sometimes does not even list the type of some of my darlings (really infuriating) which why I had to manipulate the graphic somewhat (I replaced some of the types where none of the Pokemon fit my tastes)



Bird: MissingNo.
Normal: ??????????
Psychic: Q ◣
Fire: ゥ▾ ||ゥ♂
Ghost: 4, ゥァ
Electric: ゥ$ 6ゥ
Rock: 'M 'N g
Ground: Pゥ ゥ ゥ

Ice: ゥ 4- 4
Flying: /PKMN ▼PKMN
Water: 'r 'r 4
Fighting: Pゥ 4$
Steel: ?????

I'm normally not really into Pokemon at all but a few years ago I learned about MissingNo and fell in love with its design immediately. I later learned that there were many more Pokemon that shared the same kind of delightfully abstract look. I was however disappointed how terribly the franchise in general tends to treat its most creative monsters, many of them are confined to just a single game and are needlessly hard to acquire.
And of course none of these beautiful creatures ever made it into the Anime, another reason not to watch it, I guess.

Not choosing Legendaries, possibly too many starters, using the final form(Mega but they didn't have Ash-Greninja) and made before Ultra. But still I thought it was nice.

I guess if people can list Lucario as their favorite Fighting AND favorite Steel-type... then you can list Silvally as your favorite for every type.

That's kinda boring though. This isn't a vote, it's a discussion.
