I hope you guys aren’t sick of Pokemon posts yet! I mean, you can’t be, Sun and Moon were just announced recently, soooo….
Not too long ago, Rachel had put up a list of her top favorite and least favorite (rather, least used) Pokemon types. I found it to be rather amusing how half of her least used types were a few of my favorites. Without further ado, here is my list of favorite Pokemon types.
5. Grass & Poison
I’m the person who always chooses the Grass-type starter for her main run-through of a new region. Their gentle designs and powerful special attacks always appealed to me, especially when they were combined with the deadly poison moves.
Flying-types just always seemed fun. They’ve always seemed versatile and flexible, with many having a secondary type to increase their move set. Generally their speed is unrivaled, and I believe I’ve spoken before about how quick characters tend to be a favorite of mine.
Dark type Pokemon always were a favorite of mine since they appeared in the second generation. Umbreon, Houndoom, Mightyena, Scrafty, quite a few of my favorites have been at least part Dark. It’s another type that pairs well with Poison, too, especially since Fairy-types have appeared on the scene.
They may not have the best special defense, but Steel types have one of the highest resistance records, including Poison, which can be quite troublesome if you use it right. Paired with powerful moves, and it can be tough to take down a Steel-type.
Ground definitely crawled up this list with some of my recent run-throughs. Despite my love of speedy characters, I can’t help but adore the powerful moves of these Pokemon. They may be a little risky on the defensive side, but that just means it’s an extra challenge to come up with a proper strategy in battles with them.
What are some of your favorite (or least favorite) types?
