What Pokemon do you always come back to? What Pokemon finds itself in your team very frequently?
Do you like to chat and/or battle?

Wobbuffet. Mainly because I now can. Guaranteed to take down 2 Pokémon per match with it.

I always seem to use Pikachu in the Kanto games. I just always catch one in Viridian Forest. I don't always keep it, but I don't think I've ever played a Kanto game without catching one and using it, at least for a while. I also often find myself using the Pidgey line. It's just so common, and so fast, and just so high in attack... Even if it just gets abandoned, only to be used as a Fly slave, I almost always have one.
Total noob to PokeCommunity and relative noob to Pokemon in general.
My games & progress:
Red - 6 badges
Blue - 4 badges
Yellow - 4 badges
Gold - 8 badges but no E4
LeafGreen - 8 badges, E4, Kanto Dex completed
FireRed- 8 badges & E4
Emerald - 8 badges, E4, almost finished with Hoenn Dex
Diamond - 8 badges, E4, working on dex
SoulSilver - 16 badges, no Red, working on dex
White - 8 badges, no E4
Black 2 - 6 badges
X 8 badges, E4, working on dex

In my Unova games, I always rely on Dewott! (with an everstone) - every time I'm challenged to a Pokemon battle (other trainer having 2 or more Pokemon), Dewott will always battle, even at times with type disadvantage.

When on a battle simulator I use Ninjask as often as I can. In the games though I always end up training my starter to be the pokemon I rely on. Other than that I catch an early flying type (Pidgey, Swellow ect)

I've had a Nidoking on all of my main teams since Gen 1. It's so weird, because he just finds his way there somehow. His typing makes him a risky pick, but I just like his wide type coverage. Sheer Power was a real blessing to him, as well. I use Heracross pretty frequently too, because it's such an endearing Pokemon in every way. And of course if I'm ever using Ubers, Mewtwo is a necessity.

For me, I always seem to use an Eeveelution in every single one of my competitive teams. They just work so well for me! Jolteon is my favorite sweeper. Vaporeon is my reliable tank/staller.

Ingame playing, I use Typhlosion and Lucario is each team. Adorable, right?

It always changes, my teams are always different through each playthrough. I guess I could say I've used Swellow more times than others, which is because it's my favourite Pokemon.

I try to always have my favorites in my team if it is possible. Espeon and Ninetales are almost always the Pokemon that have to be in my team. Almost always because in some games they're just unobtainable or hardly obtainable.

Yanmega! That cutie is on every single UU/OU team I make. It's just such a good Pokémon and even if it is only UU, it's still perfectly able to hold its own in OU. If you manage to get some support running with it ie Venomoth/Mew passing then it's a simply incredible Pokémon haha.

@j_Woo Gliscor is great to use, and can be such a pain to take down...

Another vote for Vaporeon and Lucario. Ferrothorn is also one of my favorites.

Qwilfish has been a staple of my three UU teams so far because he handles Heracross so well and is an amazing physical pivot with access to Spikes, Thunder Wave, and Haze making him an excellent utility pokemon as well.

I love Magnezone way too much, killing off Steels just makes Dragons broken again. No Scizor to worry about is just too nice to ignore.

Dunno if its too late to post here, but Rotom-C is probably the one Pokemon i just can't stop using in RU, its just sooo useful for many different things. Electric/Grass with Levitate is a pretty nice defensive typing with a lot of cool resistances such as Electric, Water, Grass, and an immunity to Ground. This and Volt Switch makes Rotom-C probably one of the best offensive pivots in RU imo. The Choice Scarf set is one of the best revenge killers in RU , as well. I also like using Rotom-C in UU whenever i play there (admittedly not much .-.).

I also really love to use CB Entei and various Normal- and Flying-types such as Tauros, Zangoose, and Swellow, but i think i've used Rotom-C on far more of my successful teams than any of them.

In NU, my most used pokemon is probably Serperior because of its ability to function as a wall and as a sweeper with Calm Mind. I preferably use it the most because I like it and what I said before.

In RU, I would say Typhlosion.(as of like 3 RU XD) Mainly because of Typhlosion's high base special attack along with its ability to run well as a scarfer.

Ubers would have to probably be Mewtwo. Not only is it one of my favorite legendaries, it also has a monster high special attack, allowing it to plow through any pokemon that do not resist its moves.

Oh man, if you're looking for an unbreakable special wall in NU, Stunfisk is your 'mon.
Offensively, however, Scarved Simisear Outspeeds Scarved Jolly Sawk and can hit most of the tier with the set I run.

No matter what game, Absol always has a place on my team. It has such a wide variety of moves it can learn, it has pretty good stats and is just amazing. As of Generation 5, Hydreigon and Zoroark will always have a spot on my team as well.

I seem to stick with Psychic, Dragon, and Fire types the most. Specifically, Gardevoir, Garchomp and Blaziken.
I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

Generally, Bugs. But not the OU ones, got sick of the likes of Scizor being used literally everywhere.

Anyhow, it's been.... Vespiquen, Glaceon or a Vibrava (which I never evolve)

That was before, this week, I been relying more on my Watchog (now that its my #1 favorite again), it hasn't let me down before (except for type-disadvantaged situation) - and now it has not let me down either.
