We have finally reached the last and newest pokémon type. I’ve really enjoyed doing this series and I’ll definitely be bringing it back with different iterations (shiny, legendaries). This list is interesting because most of the pokémon on it were retroactively made fairy types. Get ready for lots of pink!
Gen 1 – Kanto – Jigglypuff
Jigglypuff is wildly annoying to battle, as it’s always trying to put your pokémon to sleep. But I always loved going into the one Pokémon Center in Yellow and listening to it sing.
Gen 2 – Johto – Cleffa
Gosh this thing is so cute. They’re thought to ride into the pokémon world on meteors, so every time I see a shooting star I can think, hey, there might be a cleffa!
Gen 3 – Hoenn – Azurill
Yeah, another baby pokémon. They may be useless in battle, but they’re so heckin adorable.
Gen 4 – Sinnoh – Togekiss
Oh togepi, you’ve come so far. I don’t think I actually have a togekiss in any game other than Pokémon Go, which is true for several pokémon. It’s a pokémon of peace, avoiding conflict whenever possible.
Gen 5 – Unova – Whimsicott
Cottonee and whimsicott were my only options for gen 5. I went with whimsicott because it’s much cuter (which is rare for an evolution).
Gen 6 – Kalos – Sylveon
I was so excited when they announced this eeveelution with my favorite color combination. And I thought it was pretty cool that my shiny speculation was right – they flipped the pink and blue. I actually have a shiny sylveon and I’m looking forward to getting all the other shiny eeveelutions.
Gen 7 – Alola – Morelull
While there are several mushroom pokémon, this one is definitely the cutest. I loved seeing them float around in the pokémon livestream where Galarian ponyta was revealed.
Gen 8 – Galar – Alcremie
Of course I chose the rainbow form to show off here. There are so many forms of alcremie that the term ‘alcremie dex’ is a thing. Is it a thing with vivillon too? Probably not so much, alcremie is much more accessible. I was charmed by its evolution method – spinning your character around while your milcery holds a pose.
What are your favorite fairy type pokémon?
