Typhlosion is the one Pokémon I will use over and over again. Of the 15 plus play throughs of G/S/HG I've used him at least 9 times. It was the first Pokémon I ever got to Lv100 as well.

Since I first saw Haxorus, I thought it was so cool, and it now leads my main team on White.

And as of just a little while ago, Misdreavus. Such a cool Pokémon, and one of my favorites.

Arcanine, because I had six of them in my old Red version, for whatever reason, and it's just fluffy and cute and awesome and kfjsdlfk. Arcanine will always be my favorite pokemon <333333

Vulpix: always dreamed of having a vulpix irl c: wouldn't it be cool? :D
Treecko: i liked this guy in my class once and my classmates referred to him as treecko because i like treecko :>
another more related reason is that we only get to see the cool side of treecko so i always imagine a lot of other personalities for it to have.
Bulbasaur: i don't know why but in my eyes bulbasaur is really really cute, especially when it fell in love <3

I have more but at the moment, too lazy too name them..
Charizard: Other than fact he looks and is a complete BOSS, Charmander was my first starter. Also Charizard is the first Pokemon I got to Lv. 100.

There aren't many Lions left in the world now, yet poachers still exist. Even though it is illegal it still happens. Don't have anything to do with poaching - Take pride in your actions (pun intended)

It's always the starters, for me. I've yet to play through a game without using my starter as the main Pokemon (except for when I did a monotype challenge and so on).
I probably like Cyndaquil the most. I spent most of my time playing Gold/Silver than any other game, and Typhlosion was just the best. Of course back then I'd pretty much only use my starter, but he always won, so.. no problems there!

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

Charizard: I'm not sure why, I just love everything about it.

Lugia: The Power of One is my favourite movie, so because of that I've alway loved Lugia.

Ampharos: My Ampharos in SoulSilver is my most prized Pokémon so yeah, I just love it.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

I remember the first trading card I had, which was a Machoke. I was 8 at the time and only had them picture cards of Pokemon, before the battling ones came out. I eventually ended up having about 15 Machokes, so it lost it's sentimental value.

I've always felt attached to Bulbasaur and Charizard, mainly through their portrayals in the anime. I may like a design of a Pokemon, but the anime brings them to life. Any of the Pokemon in the first series holds a place in my heart, along with the first movie.

Swellow - First flying type I really adored.
Sceptile - Has become my favourite starter, like Venomoth changed way I saw grass types.
Manectric - Same as Swellow but for Electric type.

Persian. The first Pokemon I really took an extreme liking to, and over a dozen years, five generations, and over 600 Pokemon later, still sits on the throne as my favorite Pokemon. Nobody has been able to replace it. I like it because (a) it's a cat and (b) it exudes an air of elegance and sophistication.

Of course, there's a trainer who I like even more than any of the Pokemon...

Venasaur-My very first Pokemon I ever had and I still have it on my White. No matter what, Venasaur will always be my favorite Pokemon.
Umbreon-Ever since I played Pokemon Gale of Darkness, Umbreon has been a favorite of mine.
Jolteon-Jolteon was the first Eeveelution I ever had, so it ranks just a bit higher than Umbreon.
Persian-Another one of my first few Pokemon and it's hard not to admire Persian.

Dragonite-My first dragon type that I ever had and my favorite dragon type.

Mightyena-Another Pokemon I had in Gale of Darkness, it's definitely my favorite canine Pokemon.

Most of these Pokemon(in fact, all of these Pokemon) are ones that I had very early on in the game, even Dragonite, who I aquired through the game corner in Leafgreen. Sadly until I get the stuff I need to transfer over Pokemon from Gale of Darkness onto my handheld games, Umbreon, Mightyena, and to a lesser extent, Walrein will be staying on my Gamecube.

Charizard - I had a charmander on the Red version and named him Fenriz (yup, like the guy from Dark Throne), I trained him super hard so he could beat Brock and Misty, he obviously evolved, and, oh God, I just killed everything with him.
Houndoom - Since little, I've been kind of weird, I've always liked metal and I thought that Houndoom was something like a metalhead pokemon.
Mew - Who doesn't love Mew, I mean, just listen it mewing :3

I've been through spells of just about every Pokemon being my favourite. I used to like the Pokemon that were most lively and dangerous looking but now I just like the chilled out ones that can't be bothered to fight, like Slowbro, Hypno, Exeggutor, Rhyhorn, Meganium, Snorlax, Venasaur, Lapras, Donphan, Slaking, Bibarel, Bastiodon, Floatzel... all of them.
