My favorite is Sylveon. No reason other than I love the design and I have so many good memories using it. Other favorites are Chikorita, Jirachi, Skitty, and Alolan Vulpix.

My favorite Pokemon has to be Shaymin. Specifically sky forme, but land forme is cute too. Being born in Thanksgiving Day and given just how awesome Shaymin is, they match up perfectly.

I also am a big Lucario and Eevee (+ Eeveelution) fan!

I'd say my top 2 favorite Pokemon are Mudkip and Archeops (though I kinda just roll their evolution lines in there as well, tbh). Mudkip because it was my first Pokemon in Ruby and it's served me well over the years, Archeops because it was a beast for me in Black and I like the design and the tie-in it has with the archaeopteryx.

Well I can't help, but just completely love Gliscor! Ampharos is a close second, but Gliscor is such a lovable Pokemon, probably because of the anime...And I really did love using it in XY competitive so I got attached to it!

My favorite is a tie between Jirachi and Ribombee. I like Jirachi for nostalgia reasons and because I've always been fascinated with space, and I like Ribombee because it's cute and I love it's overall design.

Plus, both Pokemon have gimmicks that make them fun to play in competitive. :)

Flygon by far. I remember training a Trapinch back in Pokémon Ruby and just wondering when it was finally going to evolve.

Cofagrigus for sure. It's got a fantastically unique concept and design, and it's as frightening a Ghost-type as we've gotten so far. It helps that I used one in my very first playthrough of a Gen V game, and that its stat layout works well with my playstyle.

A tie between Shaymin and Bulbasaur.

I refuse to prioritize one over the other as they are both equally precious to me. ;_;

My favorite Pokemon has been Zygarde for a while now, even before the new forms were revealed. It's just super cool looking and it's pretty dang strong too. Snek for life!!!!

Besides my snekky snek, the Squirtle and Turtwig lines are pretty great, as well as Necrozma and the Cosmog lines. Kyurem is another favorite of mine heheh. I also really love the Ultra Beasts (particularly Nihilego, squishy jelly bab >w<). It's so hard to just choose one!!

Grovyle will forever be my top favourite pokémon. Close followers are Salamence, Dusknoir, Dialga and Relicanth.

Relicanth seriously deserves more love.

Arcanine and Absol are my all-time favorites, but I also have a soft spot for Reuniclus.

I love the lore attached to both Arcanine and Absol. Aesthetically, Arcanine has always been striking, but I think I would find Absol nicer if it was a bit more feline, but the flat human face is fitting for the harbinger of doom.

Reuniclus is cute, and has one of the best shiny forms of any Pokemon. I also really like how its design is based off of an animal cell. It's an underrated gem of a Psychic type, and I like it over both Espeon and Alakazam.

I don't use Absol in competitive battle, but I always use it on my casual teams. Generally, my favorite Pokemon are based off of their designs and the "personality" attached to them.

I'm with Kilza when it comes to Archeops, despite its awful ability it is a beast in Gen 5 (even though in B2W2 you can't get it until you beat the game), so much so that I'm actually using one in my playthrough of UM.

My breedject run of Ultra Sun has also given me some love for Alolan Ninetales, and Garbodor proved to be a great set-up mon, so yeah those two are up there as well.

As for myself, I'm a big fan of the Swords of Justice a.k.a. musketeers of Pokemon world. They simply look cool and their background story is quite interesting. I love them to the point of making their gijinka (read: human version) as my profile picture and calling them by their novel counterparts.

That looks so amazing! Personally, I think my favourite is Mega Gallade, I just love its design and the playstyle. I also really love Volcarona and its relation to the sun etc.

Scolipede. A gigantic megapede that goes at high speed and can use moves like Earthquake, Rock Slide, Superpower and Aqua Tail? How's that for craziness? And in Gen VI where it gets Speed Boost, that was the point that I REALLY came to like it. It's one that I will never get tired of using. B)

So that from a non-nostalgic perspective. But in that regard? Probably Lapras. I'm sure that's one for many as well so they can say it as good as I can xP

It’s quite obvious what my favorite is. I love Cosmog because of it’s adorable design and character in the story of Sun and Moon.

Yeah, yeah, we all can see that in your profile picture. And I also agree about Cosmog being adorable. :hearteyesazurill:

This may not come as a surprise to most, but I love Dratini. Ever since gen 2 I've love Dratini, not really sure why but that little serpent has really just captured my attention for a long time.
