It's a tossup between Poison and Dark, and Bug and Ghost round out my top four

My favorite type would have to be normal. It's got no major weaknesses, other than fighting. Fighting-types may be a bit common when it comes to battling, but most normal-types has got what it takes to overcome them. Normal-type Pokémon have an immunity over ghost as well. (: Of all normal-types, my favorite would have to be Blissey. Its defenses are extremely high, and its base HP stat equals to two fifty-five, which is just phenomenal! Blissey is one the best walls in the competitive scene. Regardless of how many Draco Meteors, Fire Blasts, Overheats, or Hyper Beams that you threw at it, this Pokémon would just refuse to be taken down. Not only does Blissey make a good wall, but it's also got a ton of moves in its arsenal that make it a great supporter. Few of its most useful moves are Toxic, Thunder Wave, Wish, Protect, and Aromatherapy. With Toxic, you're able to destroy the opponent's walls quite easily. Thunder Wave—this move would allow you to slow down any Pokémon that are too quick, such as Weavile. Thanks to Wish, you could recover any of your Pokémon's health at any given time. With Protect, you have the ability to stall your opponent for an additional turn. Finally, with the aid of Aromatherapy, you could restore your team's statuses in a blink of an eye.

My second favorite normal-type would have to be Chansey. It's almost the same as Blissey, but if you make it hold an Evolite, then it could be even more defensive. Chansey doesn't have the same amount of health as Blissey, though, which sucks. ): I also like Togekiss. It's got an ability known as Serene Grace, which it could take complete advantage of by using Air Slash. Air Slash has about ten- to twenty-percent chance of flinching your opponent, and Serene Grace raises that chance even higher.
keeping it captured.

Number one for me is Dragon because of their sky-high offensive stats.

Ain't no love for the Ghosts i guess. It's ok i'll always be there for them.
Imagine my surprise and joy when i found out my safari type is also Ghost.

My secondary favorite type would have to be the Fire type. I'm a pyromaniac at heart.

Ghost-Fire? I know 5th gen had a ghost-fire type but i didn't play 5th gen

I was really into Jackie Chan films around the same time Red and Blue came out, so I instantly latched onto the Fighters. But Psychic was my absolute favourite. Alakazam was just the coolest thing ever- and I was crushing hard on Sabrina.

But then again- ALL the Pokémon would be cool to a 9 year old kid. My favourites were (and still are) Machamp, Alakazam, Pinsir, Haunter, Kabutops, and Mewtwo. I thought the Poison types like Tentacruel, Venomoth, Muk, Beedrill, and Victreebel were the ****, too.

And then Gen 2 came along and OH MY GOD THE GIANT SNAKE IS MADE OF METAL.

Steel became my new favourite because of its insane resistances- but it was weak to Fighting, so Fighting got boosted number one in my books. Psychic having slowly been dethroned sometime in the process. As the generations wore on, Psychics seemed to be getting a little overused- and so it slipped a little.

As it stands-

My favorite Pokemon are primarily Ghost and Fairy, but Poison and Ice are favored based on their awesome moves. Honestly, I think my ultimate favorite type right now is Fairy, I like the whole lunar aspect of it. But the others come in as a close second.

And these favorites change all the time for me. So who knows!

Fire and Bug are my favorite types. Fire has so many great and good looking pokémon, they are my favorite starters and lots of nice attacks. Bugs have some of the best designs imo, like Scizor, Heracross, Butterfree, Scolipede.

I can't just pick one favorite, as that'd be doing a disservice to all of the other great typings there are.

If I had to narrow it down to three, it would be Psychic, Ghost and Steel. Any time I play through the games, my party feels empty if I don't have one of these types represented (with my current Y playthrough including a Sigilyph and Lucario). It also seems a majority of my favorite Pokemon either are one of those types or make good use of the moves, which always helps.

There's just something about the Steel type that I love. I also love Dark, Ghost and Fire. The only type I don't like is the Fairy type, but then I've never played X or Y so far.

If you know me, then you know that my love for all grass types is kind of disturbing. Therefore, I chose grass. Big shocker, I know.

That would be Psychic, Dark & Steel.
I don't know why, but they seemed better and because my favorite
Pokemon is Bisharp and Gardevoir, so that's why I like these types.

My fave type is, and always will be Water. It's mainly due to my "mascot" Pokemon being of that type plus I love how versatile they can be with performing various roles on the team.

I have a fair share of types I love, Psychic, Electric, Normal, Grass, Fire and Ghost have a fair share of Pokemon I love. Even the Fairy-types have been winning me over, due to the cuteness and the diversity in their designs, more than I would have thought.

This is so hard to pick because there really isn't a type that I don't like. My favorite Pokemon, Castform, is Normal typed but I wouldn't go as far to say that is my favorite type. I'm also a huge fan of Water types because of how diverse they are but by no means is it my favorite type. I guess that either Bug or Steel would be my favorite type. I just really love all Pokemon of those types and it feels like each and every generation they are only improving on the quality of Pokemon that represent those two types. Funny enough, one of my favorite Pokemon of all time is Steel/Bug typed which is Durant! If I had to pick a favorite of each though it would be Honedge for steel and Yanmega for Bug.

I really like Water Pokémon . Also very fond of grass pokémon, because of the drain abilities.

Fairy has been a great addition too though! Awesome moves and some useful type advantages.

My favorites are:
Steel. I just love the high defense of these pokemon(looking at you skarmory. your wall tactics are amazing.) Yea I know I am a sucker for wall tactics lol plus they go perfect with my next favorite type. psychic.(though gen 6 ruined this kinda.)

psychic. the mind is stronger than the sword lol. I just LOVE psychic types. All of them have such unique designs(lookin at you braixen). plus their are many strategies they can use like that nasty trick room. they have a wide variety of moves and lots of them make really good sweepers as well.

and my new favorite fairy. Alot of them are just so friggin cuuute!(looking at you sylveon). I also love the sp.def stats of alot of the fairies. makes really good sp.walls. I also love the immunities and resistances of fairies.(Togekiss I am looking at you especially.) and then I love what they did to Azumarill. It can own pretty much anything with its new play rough move. and speaking of moves alot of the fairy move are so unique!. Like the (over powered) moon blast. lol
Looking toward a brighter future

I've always been fond of Fire-types, which is mostly due to my attraction to the beauty of fire IRL (so long as it's not burning something or someone to death). These Pokemon also usually end up looking huggable (like Arcanine) and generally good.

I quite like Grass-types as well, and it's practically because of my fondness of flowers. Some are strikingly beautiful (Lilligant, for example :3), plus I think their delicateness makes them more... charming. Okay, it's sad that they're considered to be the weakest, especially those who don't get dual-typing, but none of that really matters to me.

Dark- and Ghost-types have a spot in my heart, too. :3 Black + purple + creepy = WIN.

I love water types, because I always swim and sit in water for long periods of time. *aka shower/bath* But I also like Ice, because they have a majestic beauty to them! Their moves are stunning and can freeze the opponent! I like cold weather WAY better than hot weather as well, and I love snow and rain!
Ever on and on, I continue circling;
With nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
Till slowly I forget and my heart starts vanishing;
And suddenly I see that I can't break free, I'm
Slipping through the cracks of a dark eternity;
With nothing but my hate and the paralyzing agony
To tell me who I am, who I was; Uncertainty
Enveloping my mind till I can't break free; And
Maybe it's a dream, maybe nothing else is real
But it wouldn't mean a thing if I told you how I feel
So I'm tired of all this pain, of the misery inside
And I wish that I could live feeling nothing but the night.
