    Tyrantrum
    Krookodile
    Starmie
    Gardevoir
    Braviary
    Magneton
    Scrafty

    I've used those fellas extensively in one Gen or another over the years, sometimes across multiple ones. They've served me well.

    Potential Pokemon Leaks:
    Spoiler:
    - Starters final evolutions are pure grass/fire/water types but can be changed through a new system called spirit armor into grass+fairy/fire+fighting/water+ghost.
    -Spirit armor system works like adding some new additional effects such as the burn or freeze status condition.
    - There are lots of different armors to collect and they don't occupy the item slot. They have their own.
    - Special spirit armor can change forms of some pokemon like the starters, Mewtwo and Meltan.
    - The legendary Pokemon is a single one, the logo wolf, cannot get into battles until you armor it with the version exclusive item.
    - The sword wolf is dragon/steel while the shield one is ice/steel with different ability and move set.
    - You can share the armor to get the opposite form between versions.
    - Some old characters will return.

    Tyrunt and Tyrantrum are just simple, good designs. There's nothing more to it, for me at least. They don't make my top ten, but they did definitely make my overall favorites list I linked to.

    I like the design okay but its basically just a typical anime wolf looking thing. And its shiny blue form wasn't its default.

    I already loved Raiga from Monster Rancher 20 years ago and that's basically the same design (but better), except Raiga had ice and electric powers and high speed. Also Lycanroc it utterly failed me in-game. Boring mono-typing, boring move pool with few stabs, tissue paper defenses, and the same useless sand rush ability that's been worthless on Sandshrew for years.

    Hidden:


    Its night form had better moves, better stats, better abilities, but I hated the look of it So...

    For no reason except pokémon tedious and we talking about favorites and the dragonfly website link people posted being too time consuming, I did my "favorite of each type" chart.
    Spoiler:

    Momentarily failed to make it but are also on the same league as those: Kingler, Gastrodon, Electivire, Hawlucha

    And as a bonus I tiered the bug-type (obs.: Kricketune line grew on me on the past days after I realized how I neglected it; I admit having a strong bias against Vivillon's line).

    Grookey all the way. Sadly I think I will dislike its evos (the chances of it becoming an ape and/or a drummer seem high and I doubt I will like any of those), but I learned my lesson after Rowlet and this time I will just give it an everstone if things turn like that

    Welp, I already had my list of my favorite pokemon of each type. I just spent 30 minutes coming up with bug tiers as well.

    The favorite of each type was fun to make. It was interesting to deal with all the dual types to try to fit in everything. Too bad I couldn't fit in Feraligatr...

    Spoiler:


    I don't feel strongly about any Ghost or Ground type. I'd probably choose the Zygarde dog or perfect form if they were available though.

    rip Pyukumyuku, your single typing has bitten you once again (Milotic should still be a Fairy type!)

    I'm sure whatever I pick it will have an absolutely awful third form that will be nothing like the look of its early forms, have lousy typing and movepool, and will destroy all attachment I had to it and lead to me boxing it, which my friend will get the one that looks just fine and kicks ass. That's how its gone for me the last three gens. Last one I actually liked the final form of was Torterra.



    Though to be fair, Chespin was pretty clearly a mistake as soon as I got his second form, but I held out hope he'd turn out okay.

    That said, water starter lizard is the one that appeals to me currently.
