Scyther has been my favourite since I first played Gen 1. Pangoro recently took the slot of #2, just barely behind Scyther (was a tough call, honestly).

Other than these two I like a bunch of others but I can't really call them "favourites", I just find them cool:

Typhlosion, Houndoom, Absol, Haunter, etc. too many to name!

My favorite Pokemon is one that no one even considers a good Pokemon at all. Castform is and always will be my favorite Pokemon. I just love it's adorable little design, it's amazing movepool, it's cute little gimmick, and just really everything about it. No, it isn't the best Pokemon in terms of stats but overall it is a good little Pokemon to use in-game and I just adore it <3

A Pokemon that is discriminated!
Support squirtle and make it everyone's favourite.

You knew I was gonna say this right? They don't call me the Oshawott Girl for nothing!

Oshawott is essentially the Pokemon I wanted for years, something cute and badass at the same time. I love how it uses its shell (called a scalchop) as many different weapons as shown in the anime, such as a sword, a shield and even a boomerang. Not to mention how cute he acts in the anime as well, he was essentially my go-to starter in all my 5th Gen Pokemon games. He'll always be my mascot forever.

Aside from Oshawott, I've fallen in love with Sylveon, and most Fairy-types in general. I also love most Water-types out there, including my second fave Pokemon ever, Froakie (and its evos too). I also love a lot of Psychic, Dragon, Normal, Fire, Grass, Ice, Electric and Ghost-types due to their designs. Some of my other notable faves include Pikachu (my fave before Oshawott came), Emolga, Meowstic, Fennekin's evolution line, Xerneas, Togekiss, the elemental monkeys from 5th Gen (especially Pansage) and even Vivillon as of late, with my fave of its forms being River Pattern (aka my region's native pattern).

My favorite for years has been Pidgeot. It reminded me the most of my favorite animal, a Peregrine Falcon. And he looked badass in my opinion.

Then entered Talonflame, who is modeled after the Peregrine Falcon and well... my favorite since Red and Blue has been unseated. I mean a bird of fire that dive bombs at over 310 MPH (actual Peregrine Falcons were clocked at over 200 MPH) and delivers a nasty kick? PLUS they show embers from their wings as they fly? Probably looks sexy as f*ck.

Ground type Pokemon have always been my favorite; probably due to the fact they had an immunity, back before it was cool, and electric types did some serious damage in the earlier generations. Dig was extremely useful for me to get out of caves when I needed to save the game in a safe spot. This led Sandslash to be one of my favorite Pokemon. I'm glad it finally learns all of the STAB/support moves naturally in X&Y. They really gave my guy a lot of love

I am also on board the Eevee train since X&Y makes breeding/leveling so easy... well, and the ability to catch them as well! I didn't beat X&Y with an Eevee team yet, but I plan to on my second or third time around. Right now I am breeding Eevee for use at the battle mansion in Kiloude City. Umbreon is my favorite since it had immunity to Psychic attacks (another heavy hitter when it first came out); sadly it has a third vulnerability now....

My first shiny Pokemon ever, I caught in X&Y, a Luvdisc! It's -Def, +SpAttk, but I love it anyways lol. I built a Triple Battle team based on making it work, and I have marginal success against the computer. Vaporeon and Heliolisk can both ignore/get healed by its Surf, which is great fun.

My favorite Pokemon is Umbreon and Absol.
I think Absol is cool because when you find him you know thats something bad is coming. You can find him at route 13 in pokemon black/white because 13 is a unlucky number.

Umbreon is one of Eevee's elvove but you can't use any stones (water-stone fire-stone leaf-stone thunder-stone or moon-stone) on him to elvove you'll have to make him happy and train him alot when its night time.

My main favorite Pokémon are definitely Victini and Shaymin, because they are cute and adorable. Aside from these two, I like Pikachu, Oshawott, Snivy, Togekiss, Eevee lines, and Xerneas among others.

It's really hard to pick a favorite Pokemon because there are just so many of them! I'd say Swanna. My passion for Water-types and birds shows why, and Swanna is like the more elegant version of Pelipper. It also shows how much I hate the Electric-type as well, as she is 4x weak to it.
Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

This is such a tough question. I don't have one favorite and the ones I have changes often. But some I seem to always want to list are...

Sneasel + Weavile
Octillery (and Remoraid!)
Cryogonal (those ice chains)

But I also like Pikachu, Riolu, Honedge, Scizor... a hundred more. Recently Mawile has caught my attention more. There are so many and each is great in its own way :3 Almost.

Flareon: I loved Flareon since the days of Red and Blue. Whenever I got the Eevee from Bill, Flareon was always my choice for his evolution. A fire type combined with an adorable design and overall the tendency for Flareon to be considered the weakest Eevolution have helped him become a staple for my in-game teams from generation to generation. Massively underrated and damn cute--I have a real soft spot for Flareon.

Seviper: Seviper first came to my attention when Jessie "caught" herself one in the anime. I have always liked the design, the varied movepool (from Flamethrower and Earthquake to X-Scissor) and for a standalone Pokemon, Seviper has pretty decent stats.

Dustox: Much like Seviper, Dustox found its way into my heart after Jessie's Wurmple eventually evolved into one. While all my friends had Beautifly, I had Dustox--she really helped me through R/S/E despite not being the strongest. She often gets called one of the weakest Bug types, but there's something I cannot resist about the moth. I must say that she looks fantastic in the new 3D graphics, too.

Swoobat: I know there seems to be a pattern emerging here with me and Jessie's Pokémon, but I hadn't seen the Black and White series to even know she had a Woobat (I promise!). When I first saw Woobat in-game, I thought it was poorly designed but figured I would catch one anyway because I liked the dual-typing. I expected myself to put her in a box and never have much use for her but I decided to train the unconventional cutie up a little bit. When she eventually became a Swoobat, I needed convincing no longer. Swoobat might not be to everybody's tastes, but I really love using them.

Meowstic: My favorite Gen VI Pokémon. Meowstic really stood out to me when they were unveiled in one of the gameplay trailers a few months before release. I have always loved cats but the previous cat Pokémon didn't really do it for me (with exception of Persian, Skitty, Delcatty). I attempted to raise Purrloin in B&W but it felt like such a drag--and even as a Liepard, he wasn't too much fun to use. As soon as I read Meowstic had gender variations and were Psychic-type, I was certain I would use one. The male design appealed to me more initially but since using both in-game, I am in love with female Meowstic. So. Damn. Cute. Their movepools really interest me, too.

1. Nidoking - Offensive and Bulky. Great move pool via TMs. I used to use him all the time in FireRed.
2. Flygon - First Pokemon that I ever got to level 100. Strong, cool looking and also cute at the same time.
3. Tyranitar - When I saw someone using this for the first time, I instantly wanted it! Shame that I only got it in XD.
4. Charizard - Favorite all time starter. Loved it in the show as well as using it. Did a Solo run with it and it did great.
5. Absol - I just think it's a cool looking Pokemon and I always liked it.

Some of these might change since I'm starting to play the higher generations now.

What is your favorite pokemon and why? For me, it's the obvious, Zoroark. He has a cool model and his play style fits me. In rpgs I always choose the stealthy approach :D.

(Sorry if someone already made this, I didn't see a thread about this and decided to start one)

Nidoking. Use him all the time when I can. Bulky, and good move pool. Also looks like a boss.

For me, it's Charizard..
He's a cool looking dual Fire/Flying type and has been around since the beginning.
I love using him in playthroughs and in generation six gets two new awesome looking mega evolutions!

My favorite pokémon goes way back to the days where I used to follow the TCG and was constantly trying to find the perfect card to build a fun mindgame deck around. When the very first Neo3 booster pack I acquired contained this...
Spoiler: was love at first sight. Even though I've given up on the TCG years ago, I still make it a point to use a crobat in nearly every one of my Pokémon playthroughs.

In every generation I played I had one in team. (I didn't play before 3rd generation).
I love his "dark" side and the way how he evolves from eevee.
