Gotta catch ’em all… Or at least the cute ones!

With the announcement of the revamp and release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in a few months I thought I would take a journey down Pokemon memory lane.  Click here to view the full list of Pokemon by number on Bulbapedia. As in all things, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have a special love for all the original Pokemon and actually don’t have a single Pokemon listed from Gen 2 and only one from Gen 3.

CUTEST POKEMON OF ALL TIME

250px-004Charmander

Charmander is my favorite Pokemon. Period. He may not be the cutest Pokemon but I have the strongest emotional connection to him.  His episode in the first anime really solidified that for me.  I have to say that selecting my Pokemon in the first game is probably the most magical video game moment in my childhood. Naturally, I picked Charmander and I love his evolution to Charzard. I love fire types and even still gravitate towards them.

350px-Eeveelutions

No list of cute Pokemon would be complete without Eevee and it’s evolutions. This is by FAR the cutest Pokemon. Ever.  Sylveon is my current favorite but I really love Flareon and Jolteon.

250px-037Vulpix

Vulpix has a similar look to Flareon. In fact it almost looks like a pre-evolution for Flareon. Check out this google search of Growlithe and Vulpix. I can’t handle the cuteness!

250px-672Skiddo

Skidoo is my favorite from X/Y. Clearly it’s precious and I LOVE that it has the emerald green accent. I really like Skidoo’s evolution too!

250px-506Lillipup

Lillipup is on this list for obvious reasons. A puppy Pokemon. It really can’t get more adorable than that. However, it is a shame that it evolves into really one of the least esthetically pleasing Pokemon.  I mean, Herdier just looks so grumpy and not in an awesome/cool sort of way.

250px-653Fennekin

Fennekin was my selection in Pokemon X/Y. If you can’t tell I tend to love Pokemon that look like puppies. Fennekin’s evolution is pretty bizarre though. I try not to look up evolutions during game play so I was very surprised by the direction it took.

250px-131Lapras

Although I love aquatic creatures in regular life I usually avoid them in Pokemon. I probably just don’t find their moves as interesting as fire type Pokemon. With that being said, Lapras is stunning. Gyarados is also a really striking Pokemon.

     250px-719Diancie

I wasn’t sure about having Diancie on my list or not but ultimately wanted to include this Pokemon because it is by far the cutest of the type. I also really like how unique the design is and the incorporation of the gemstones is really clever.

250px-585Deerling-Spring

Deerling has such a sweet face and I especially love the coloring on the Spring version. I think it’s so fun when a Pokemon is created and expanding upon and there is variety. (Eevee’s evolutions, Deerling by seasons, Etc)

250px-263Zigzagoon

Zigzagoon is so non-typically cute. I love the spikes and the black accent on the eyes.  Not a fan of the evolution again, but it could have been worse.

I hope you enjoyed my list and would love to hear which Pokemon you love. Let me know in the comments section below.

  1. So many newbies… all adorable. But I still can’t forget 4th grade when I treasured my Ponyta, Jigglypuff and Horsea simply because they were the cutest of them all.

  2. Not a Pikachu fan?
    And Growlithe is pretty cute!
    ^^^This is the really important comment that I needed to make.

    • Honestly it didn’t even occur to me to add Pikachu. I wouldn’t categorize Pikachu into the makes-me-wanna-squel-it’s-so-cute category though. Like Charmander, more of an emotional connection from the anime. I love little Pika though!
