Poison-Type, because:
-Haunter carried me through my first Elite 4 because of his annoying poisonings.
-Poison's cannot get poisoned.
-Most poison types have counters towards their weaknesses.
-Most Poisons are pretty quick.
-Gengar is awesome.

Stupid eh? Stupid like a fox!

Hmm...flying, fire, dragon, ghost types...I love those, and more. I can't really choose a favorite, because I love so many...

However, I will explain my reasons for these types.
Fire: My very first Pokemon was Infernape, a fire type. Fire types usually have great designs, and represent the fire in my spirit.

Flying: Almost all of them have a natural beauty about them, and usually excel in speed and attack, two of my favorite stats, besides special attack.

Ghost: They are very mysterious, and have surprising abilities. Not only that, many of them have a wicked design, and just generally cool.

Dragon: Perhaps the strongest type, possessing phenomenal stats, and have a mystic feel to them, especially Altaria and Dragonair...and because they are just boss in general. XD

The water type appeals to me more, possibly because my personal element is water, as well (horoscope is Pisces). It may be the most common, but it's definitely one of the most underestimated.

Normal all the way. The Learnsets are huge, with all sorts of moves of all types, Normal Pokemon have no type strengths, but few weaknesses, & a lot Pokemon with uniqe builds & abilities are Normal types, eg Kecleon, Castform, Porygon & evolutions, Blissey & its line, Slaking, Regigigas. But also because to someone who's favourite colour is white, their easy on the eyes.

Psychic would be my second, for much the same reasons.

Surprisingly for me, Psychic. I just love most of their designs of Pokemon, and some of the cool moves. I usually definitely try to leave a slot on my team for one!

Dark because I always loved Umbreon and Houndoom. Psychic is a close second because of Espeon being my other favourite along with Umbreon.

From seeing and answering this question a few times now, I've about come to the conclusion that Grass is my favorite type. I honestly don't know why - I just like Grass types.

Water-types, cos they are handy and most have appealing designs.

Not to mention my fave evolution line is Water-type too.

I'm known to chop and change, but I think it's safe to say, that my favourites are Rock/Dark/Steel types. Some of my most favourite of Pokemon share one or two of these attributes, so... it's only natural I like their typing. (Larvitar, Kabutops, Shuckle = Rock | Liepard, Tyranitar = Dark | Forretress, Steelix, Ferrothorn, Scizor, Skarmory = Steel.) Although I do have a few favourite Pokemon outside these types such as Jellicent and Exeggcutor, so I suppose I like a quite a few.

If I really had to narrow it down to one or two, I'd say Rock and Dark types are my favourites.

Hmm..tough choice to make. I would choose water, fire, electric, dragon, steel, dark, psychic....oh no, that's too much. I have a whole lot of favourites... I'm not very good at making choices >< Urkk..OKAY. I'll choose one, and that would be.....FIRE.

The fire-type is known to be powerfully and fiercely elegant, and this can be seen in both the Pokemon and their moves. Take a look at Rapidash, Arcanine and Ninetails for example. They all can be depicted as what I've described above. Don't y'all agree? <3 I will always leave a spot on any of my teams for a precious fire-type.

Hmm.. There are so many I like it's hard to choose. I suppose I'll go with Poison. There aren't many Poison Pokemon I like, but I love the type.

Just moved this into Pokémon Voting Polls, since it's more suited to this section. Anything which is a poll like that, is better here. Just be on the lookout for that in future buddy.

Water types have always been my favorite. Most of them are blue, have a cool design, and they can use surf and waterfall (Two of the very few HMs that are very effective in battle).

I also like Steel and Dragon

I have always liked the ground type. Since in pokemon red/blue most of my favourites were in this type. Like nidoking/queen, marowack, rhydon and golem. But from the second generation i started to like the steel type. And I think it is my favourite type. I like the overall design of both steel and ground pokemon (atleast in most cases) Plus I always looked out for "strong" pokemon. And at the time I thought they where the strongest. I also like dragons because of their raw power.

Water types. Yes, water. Most of them are cute, and also a few good legendaries like Keldeo and Palkia are Water types. So, I love 'em. I just don't know why, but I prefer them. They also have only two weaknesses as compared to three good-to-the-core advantages, so, yeah. Besides, there are also a few cool moves for water types, and there is no TM for Hydro Pump, so I always found them precious.

Mixture for me between Dark and Normal types. First off majority of my #1 favorite Pokemon are either Dark or Normal, or a mixture of the two. Some of my favorite attacks are either Dark (such as Payback, Bite, Torment, Assurance, Embargo, Night Slash) or Normal (such as Fury Swipes, Retaliate, Pay Day, Assist, Hyper Fang, Scratch, Cut, Swift, Swagger, Mean Look).

instead of 'Catch 'em All' for me would be "gotta Pet 'Em All"
