Ahh I used to change my favourite Pokemon every second minute. I used to be fond of Arcanine for a long time but then it lost all of the spark it had for me years ago, I don't know why. It's still a Pokemon I love though, although it isn't top dog anymore, you could say I suppose. Right now my current favourite is Minun, it isn't the greatest battler out there, I can understand that but its overall design is rather adorable. I like its playful nature in the anime and honestly I've once tried using it, wasn't half bad! I was expecting it to be rather worthless, but it proved me completely wrong. Also I have a figurine of it stashed away somewhere from years and years ago, so I guess you can say that adds to the fondness as well.

    Bug-Galvantula because I fell in love with it in White
    Grass-The Bulbasaur line because they are my most favorite Pokemon evah
    Poison-Toxicroak due to B.A. design
    Ground-Marowak because of all the creepypasta centered around it
    Rock-Golem because it can survive dynamite. THE POKEDEX SAID SO
    Flying-Pidgeot because it was one of my trusty teammates in Leafgreen
    Normal-Togekiss because of Metrenome spam
    Electric-Magneton because I prefer it over Magnezone
    Steel-Lucario because of deadly spikes poking out of it
    Fighting-Machamp because multiple arms = win
    Psychic-Gardevoir because of crossdressing. (Since it can sometimes be male)
    Dark-Umbreon/Mightyena because I can't choose between them
    Ice-Walrein because walrus are awesome
    Water-Floatzel because of the life saving floatation device on its neck
    Fire-Arcanine/Ninetails because I once again can't pick between two Pokemon
    Ghost-Gengar because of a really epic battle against Lance in Leafgreen
    Dragon-Dragonite because Dragonite is win

    Please note, that my favorite Pokemon are subject to change at any given moment. OMGMUDKIPZ

      I think Overall i can say that my favorite pokemon is Timburr.

      Many people think Timburr is ugly, but it's adorable in my opinion! Mine on my White version is one of the strongest pokemon in my team. Fighting types are my second-favorite type too.

      Am I supposed to be doing some kind of format here with types..? .w.

      Let's see...

      Dark - Houndoom. This thing is the coolest looking Pokemon they've ever introduced and it's strong and very fun to take with my team in the generations I have been able to use it (mostly just Platinum ;_;)

      Water - Feraligatr. I cannot count how many times I've solo'd Crystal with this guy. He is just an incredible Pokemon and he looks so cool!

      Poison - Crobat. This thing's speed is off the chart! And the fact that he evolves from annoying Pokemon, for some reason, makes me love it even more.

      Ice - Weavile. Besides being my second favorite dark type, this is my favorite Ice type, because it's cool, fast, strong, and kind of creepy lol.

      Fire - Houndoom lol. Arcanine is second tho for being fire beast.

      Dragon - Druddigon. I've never been a huge dragon fan, but with BW brought my favorite BW Pokemon in Druddigon. Even if he looks odd, I love him and his sheer power.

      Flying - Crobat again. Honchkrow is second for being a boss (for real)

      Grass - Serperior. The classiest of all starters here and the most interesting imo. With low offensive stats, you'd wonder why someone would use this thing, but with great boosting moves in calm mind and coil, it's not hard to use this thing in-game.

      Ground - Donphan. I remember the days I started to use this thing. I saw it in Silver and wanted it so badly that I used a Master Ball (I was an 8 year old mind you).

      I have to think more about the others before I edit the list with more.

              Tangrowth, because he could fit well into any team as a good Special Sweeper.

                by far without a doubt, megnanium (sorry if i spelt it's name wrong)

                but it was my favorite out of all the grass pokemon. back when i was still a kid (when the grass was green LOL) me and my two buddy's would always switch our starters. so when H, G came out, one of us took the water, one of us took fire, and other one took leaf.

                For red and blue, i had charmander (THANK GOD) lol. for H, G, i had magnanium. so since then, always been my favorite grass type.

                    Not much... actually, I'm not sure it could do any damage, it's just a duck after all, and hardly a strong species.
                    Sure, the leek can have various elemental attributes when wielded, but it's still just a normal plant stem.

                    Hmm. Depends on if it knows V-Create or not. If it does, about 200 damage easily.

                    As long as these struggles are aimless, we will all be standing still.

                    Not much really. Since it's a starter Pokemon it's only got pretty much basic stats and attacks. Doesn't learn alot of grass-types before it evolves so the best it can do is use Quick Attack and Absorb. Absorb go do a good amount of damage , cause it probably would drain my energy down a bit. So I'd say about 20-50 damage maybe 75 or 80 at most.

                    My favorite Pokemon is Tropius, so I think it would be fair to say that it would cause a decent amount of damage before anyone could take it down ;; I mean it is a large dinosaur like Pokemon after all!

                      None. I mean, Celebi couldn't possibly be angry with me, right? Anyway, I'll scare it off with some bug move, say X-Scissor.

                        just like ★Hoenn★ said, i couldn't possibly imagine celebi, latios or latias being angry with me. they would most likely flee at ememy sight. I can imagine celebi going back in time before i was born to mess with my existance though.

                            Golurk. Come on, it's a ghost robot. How could it possibly get more awesome than that? Also crobat and absol, because they're just cool like that.

                              From childhood I have related to Cubone more than any other Pokemon.. I just wish I could hide under a skull sometimes. I also think the story of Cubone is just so... sad. I can't help but tear up. Plus, Marowak is pretty awesome.. if I could ever choose my own starter Pokemon, I would choose Cubone every time.

                                Without a doubt it's Treecko! If you could tell by my current signature and avatar(go to my profile if you're looking at this on April Fools Day. You'll see and know who this is.). Ever since I saw when Gen III was just being released and I thought it was the coolest Pokemon ever. And I still do. It's so BA looking and it's also has the fastest speed of any unevolved starter. Plus when it evolves into Grovyle, it can learn Leaf Blade. And Grovyle/Sceptile + Leaf Blade is an awesome combo.

                                      Sceptile without a doubt is my number one. Sapphire was when Pokémon became my obsession and I couldn't have picked a better partner.
                                      Okay okay so Blaziken has a type advantage and higher tier, what even of it.
                                      And after him is Bulbasaur. I just like both of them for the memories we shared together.

                                        Cool topic! I've never thought about my favorite from each type...

                                        Dark - Honchkrow: What a gangster, am I right? Not only are birds epic by nature, but this guy has a fedora. Pretty sure if pokemon were real, I'd have this guy, and we'd go to the casino together.

                                        Fire - Camerupt: I love the dust that swirls when it drops into battle. I can see taking long rides through the country on its back, as long as those volcanoes were kept under control. What a beast.

                                        Dragon - There's actually not one dragon type that I really, really like. I'd probably go with Vibrava because it's pretty cool looking.

                                        Ice - Froslass: I always think it's really cool when pokemon evolve by gender. Have to make sure your Snorunt is female so you can get this icy lady. Seems like she'd be good to talk to, despite a cold personality.

                                        Bug - Yanmega: I mean, is it a a dragonfly or a machine/helicopter? Looks like a cross between those. I can see threatening a bully with a dragonfly and them laughing, only to freak out when they see this beast come out.

                                        Steel - Technically Magneton since it's now part steel, but I only think of it as electric. I'll say Durant, even though it's part bug. Durant is the coolest ant I've ever seen. Between Durant and Yanmega, I don't think people would mess with my bugs.

                                        Psychic - Kadabra: Going old school here. Love the bent spoons, but you only need one (hear that Alakazam?). Two could prevent mobility and other attacks. Plus, who wants to have to trade their pokemon to get it to evolve?! Honorable mention to Natu/Xatu for being straight up cool and Gardevoir for being, well, Gardevoir.

                                        Grass - Virizion: Taken me a long time to find a grass type that I really like, but found it in White 2. The combination of fighting solves two types I don't usually have. Another one I could see taking rides in the country side with.

                                        Rock - Bastiodon: I can kind of see this guy as like an epic dog pet. It would be fun to have around the house and could keep you safe in a jam. Plus, use iron defense a few times and laugh as anybody tries to knock you out. Honorable mention to the amazing duo of Lunatone and Solrock <3 Just try to mess with me with the moon and the sun on my side.

                                        Ground - Hippowdown: Come on, it's a hippo. One of the beastliest creatures in real life has to be a beastly pokemon.

                                        Water - Kingler: One of my all time favorites, ever since the epic anime moment where he steamrolled through the first round of the Pokemon League. Hop on the big crab's back and travel the seven seas.

                                        Fighting - Hitmonlee: Maybe it's the former soccer player in me, but I like that this guy kicks his way to victory.

                                        Flying - Drifblim: Again, it's basically a hot air balloon people. There's not much cooler than that. Plus, it has ghostly tendencies. Too cool.

                                        Poison - Muk: Another one I loved during the Pokemon League tournament. Only second to Kingler's epic run is the moment when Muk suffocates Bellsprout. Winner winner.

                                        Normal - Ditto: So I can have any of my other favorites.

                                        Electric - Magneton: My all time favorite. Love this guy. Tri-attack looks so cool. Brosef for life.

                                        Ghost - Mismagius: Just a bad lady here. Is she a witch for Halloween? What's the story? We all want to find out, that's all I know.
