I also love Teddiursa, but there wasn't enough room for another Normal-type.
Also, Zygarde core is the best.

Most of my list consists of Pokemon that I think are either super cute, or really happy. Sometimes both. A select few is because of how cool they look. Also, you can choose to ignore the ramblings as to why I like these Pokemon so much.

Bug: Ribombee
It's super cute and a little underrated. I love the scarf thing around its neck. It's also one of my dream shinies!

Dark: Incineroar
When the starters for Alola were first revealed, I liked Litten a lot. But I wanted to wait until its evolution was revealed before I made my final decision, and I wasn't disappointed. This guy reminds me of a Disney/Don Bluth villain and I love it!

Dragon: Noivern
Bat wyvern! Of course I love this thing! I also appreciate the colour choice. Purple and green, with a black body goes so well together.

Electric: Helioptile
This little guy is so cute. He's a happy, little electric lizard. Its evolution is alright, but I love Helioptile a little more.

Fairy: Primarina
Of all the things Popplio could evolve into, I least expected a seal/mermaid. It actually works. So much, that I had a hard time picking between Primarina and Incineroar when the games first came out.

Fighting: Hitmontop
I really don't know why I love Hitmontop so much. It's so silly but kind of adorable. Plus, it has the best 3D animations. Seriously watch this thing fight, it's sort of hypnotizing.

Fire: Delphox
Greninja used to be my favourite Kalos starter, but then I gave Delphox a shot and I loved using it. The wizard inspiration is really cool. And I'm slowly realizing that I'm falling in love with the Psychic type.

Flying: Swoobat
Crobat used to be my favourite bat, but Swoobat slowly crept up to be one of my favourites. It's so cute and fluffy, and I love its heart shaped nose!

Ghost: Gengar
Was a fan since Pokemon Yellow(My first Pokemon game), and still a fan of it. It's such a simple, yet effective design.

Grass: Meganium
A sentimental favourite of mine. I started with Chikorita when Pokemon Silver came out, and Meganium became the star of my team. Again, a simple but effective design (To me, anyways). The pink flower on its neck is cute, and I like the little antennas on its head.

Ground: Flygon
I don't know why, I just really like Flygon. It has a cool design, and it's my favourite Gen 3 Pokemon.

Ice: Alolan Ninetails
Not a huge fan of the Ice Type, so this one was hard. But I love Ninetails and making it into an Ice type made it cooler than it was already! (No pun intended)

Normal: Eevee
I know. Eevee is so overrated, and I think so as well. But every time I look at Eevee, I can't help but smile. It's just so darn cute!

Poison: Salazzle
Awesome fire type! Only Poison type I actually like. The pink and purple look so good with the black

Psychic: Mr. Mime
Another Pokemon that I'm not sure why I like so much. It's super silly, yet I can't help but adore it.

Rock: Aerodactyl
With all the fossil Pokemon that we have, Aerodactyl is still the best. Awesome design and one of the best Kanto Pokemon.

Steel: Bisharp
My favourite gen 5 Pokemon. Bisharp has a very solid design. I just wish Pawniard either had a middle evolution, or evolved into Bisharp sooner. This line is hard to train otherwise. Also, Bisharp has an amazing shiny. I Masuda Method one once, but I would like to full odds hunt it in Black and White soon.

Water: Vaporeon
Vaporeon has been my go to favourite Pokemon since the beginning. When I first played Pokemon Yellow, I ditched Pikachu for Vaporeon. (I'm sorry, Pikachu!) Its design is both cute and cool.

Is there somewhere to find that template or are people just editing it themselves?
