Pokémon Day is February 27th and the Pokémon Company has lots planned to celebrate. To kick things off, they’re holding a vote for Pokémon of the Year – you can vote by googling “pokémon vote” and choosing one pokémon from each generation. You can do this once every day until February 14th.
This vote reminded me that a couple months ago, I chose my favorite pokémon of each type for each generation, and I’ve decided to post my choices. I have not included any legendary/mythical pokémon here, but I may choose my favorite legendaries in the future. There will be one post for each type, starting today with normal type pokémon. I wonder if any of my choices will win Pokémon of the Year!
Gen 1 – Kanto – Eevee
I’ve always been extremely fond of eevee – it’s not only one of my favorite normal type pokémon, it’s one of my favorite pokémon in the whole series. I chose Let’s Go Eevee! over Let’s Go Pikachu! and I always like to have an eeveelution on my team. While I didn’t have one in on my team in Shield (very sad we didn’t get a new one), I do plan on obtaining each shiny eeveelution.
Gen 2 – Johto – Igglybuff
Honestly? I don’t use normal type pokémon too often. I chose igglybuff because it’s so adorable.
Gen 3 – Hoenn – Skitty
Skitty is a rare example of a normal type pokémon I have used on my team. Did I keep it for the whole game? No, but I sure loved hanging out with this cutie. I would love to see it appear in the overworld sometime *cough pokémon sword/shield dlc*.
Gen 4 – Sinnoh – Chatot
This guy is a colorful ‘music note’ pokémon. I love all things colorful, and if you couldn’t tell from my Music Monday posts, I love music, so this guy’s like half my personality.
Gen 5 – Unova – Minccino
Minccino is so cute, I just wanna give it a hug. I’m planning to shiny hunt it (it’s pink!) in Shield after I have a few more shiny Gen 8 pokémon.
Gen 6 – Kalos – Furfrou
Your character’s not the only one who can go to the salon and get a trim in Pokémon X and Y. Furfrou has 9 alternate forms! I’m a fan of the heart trim and the star trim – basic, but I love the colors.
Gen 7 – Alola – Komala
Komala is always sleeping – and that’s not an exaggeration, it really is always asleep. And yet, it’s fully functional, able to eat and battle. If komala existed in the real world, I can guarantee we would have live 24-hour komala-cams.
Gen 8 – Galar – Wooloo
I (and many others) fell in love with wooloo when it was announced. I knew I wanted it on my team before the game was released. While it didn’t stay on my team for the whole game, it was fun to have a tank-ier pokémon on my team (I usually go for speedy and high attack). I also just got a shiny wooloo last week – it’s a black sheep.
What are your favorite normal type pokémon?
