Cute pokemon are super special awesome, and to me kinda drives me away from all the really powerful overused things, and it's nice getting away from that, especially with something like Chikorita.
Anyway, since I'm on the subject of Chikorita, I should get into why I picked it as my partner Pokemon. Even though I always used Totodile back when I had my old Silver Version as a kid, Chikorita has honestly been my favorite thing ever in terms of cuteness in a Pokemon. It's super awesome, I love it's cute red eyes, and it's just so kawii, and I really wish I had myself one of those Chikorita plushies and...well, let me just go to the point before I go ramble for 9001 hours. Chikorita, cutest thing ever in my opinion, but Furret is a close second and is also one of my favorite Pokemon.
Hi there Blissy! Chikorita is indeed a very adorable little critter, in fact it was my first ever Pokémon, my starter of choice back in Gold. But did you read the rules properly? Someone has already claimed Chikorita as their partner Pokémon, so you will have to pick something else. Oh, and you can't pick Furret either I'm afraid, she's already mine. :3
I'm sorry... >.> I'm sure there are other cute Pokémon you like as well though!
