This was difficult since there are so many that I love and I had an especially hard time picking some individual types out, e.g. Ghost, which is my favourite type. It will also change a bit with Gen 8 coming up but as for Gens 1-7, this is pretty definitive.

Did this a couple days ago, and it definitely was difficult. Also, dual types could possibly have been in either categories sometimes, such as Kirlia or Flygon, but I didn't want doubles

The site also has its own stats, I guess they could be fun to compare with yours!

Please note some of these may change overtime; I haven't played Sword & Shield yet, but I have several new favorites already that could replace some of these slots at a later time.

Okay, double posting like this is probably heavily frowned on, but I'd like to update my favorites list to be more accurate. Some Pokemon have changed, most have not.

After looking over this list, I feel like my taste in Pokemon is like 50% the most popular Pokemon and 50% more obscure 'mons (that, or I'm underestimating the popularity of some of the Pokemon I put on this list).

This was kind of difficult specially with the fire types which has especially changed overtime for me Charmander was my original Fire favourite(for years)but has since been knocked out of the spot by Flareon and others,due to how my tastes have changed .In terms of Fire types Charmander is like at number 4 out of 5 of my top 5.

i made this about a year and a halfish ago and honestly? can't say anything has changed much. there's a few very strong second place contenders, but this chart of course doesn't show that. =P
