The Cutest Pokémon of All Time
Some Trainers collect Pokémon for the thrill of battling them, training their teams, and evolving them into stronger forms. Others enjoy their original cute appearances, and sometimes it pays to maintain the base form, letting you learn new attacks faster.
No matter how you play, you're bound to find some creatures that especially worm their way into your heart. Of course, "cuteness" is largely subjective, and we all have our own favorites, but today we'll examine 50 of the most-endearing Pokémon available!
While Emolga could use an evolution, he's undeniably cute and offers a strong elemental typing—Flying negates Electric's weakness to Ground, leaving few openings and several resistances.
Sleeping animals are cute. Koalas are cute. Put them together and you've got this drowsy but endearing mammal. In fact, Komala's slumber actually helps him in battle, as he's always treated like he's asleep (meaning he can't gain other non-volatile status conditions) but can still attack normally.
Type: Normal/Psychic (Aria Forme), Normal/Fighting (Pirouette Forme)
Meloetta's a good-natured legendary with two potential forms, each with a rare typing. Just don't start thinking her and Gardevoir are that cute—we've got enough of those fans as is.
Ghosts types are often creepy, but Pumpkaboo's a chunky little fella with a sweet name. Plus, according to the Pokédex, he's benevolent in nature, carrying deceased spirits to "the place where they belong" so they can move on.

Everyone loves cats, and Meowths have demonstrated a surprising number of skills in various media. In the anime, Team Rocket's Meowth is capable of speech, the signature Pay Day attack provides a great money-generating tool in the games, and Meowth's alternative Dark-type Alolan form (in the evolved Persian state) saw competitive use thanks to a great ability and moveset.
This thing is almost sickeningly cute—he's a ball of fluff with one tooth and a heart emblem on his nose. And Woobat only evolves once his friendship stat peaks, rewarding you for bonding with him.
Shinx gets more intimidating as he evolves, but it's hard not to like his adorable base stage. And Luxray made a great companion to traverse Sinnoh with, offering impressive base stats geared towards offense.
Cubone's story is tragic, wearing the skull of his deceased mother, but if anything, it only reinforces our sympathy for the Pokémon that just wants to be with his family.
Type: Fairy (previously Normal)
Before Johto's games released, Togepi was featured heavily in the anime, exciting fans for the next generation. Togepi's basically a baby—cute, but with a lot of crying. And he's stayed surprisingly competitive throughout the years, converting into the powerful Fairy type and obtaining a third stage (Togekiss).
As cliche as Electric rodents are, even I have to admit Togedemaru is pretty cool. He's a happy, chubby mouse with a fun type pairing—just keep him away from Ground attacks.
Snorlax was later given the pre-evolution Munchlax, but his base form is one of the most relatable Pokémon around, just wanting to nap and snack. He's also competitive, bearing great attack and special defense, and his scripted battles in the Kanto games earned him a slot in many teams.
Jirachi's an odd mix of cute and ominous. Despite his small stature, he's a powerful legendary with an intimidating signature attack called "Doom Desire." But at the same time, he's a wish-making Pokémon with seemingly pure intentions—just don't make him mad.
Like Jirachi, Manaphy is a cute but powerful legendary who won over fans despite controversy with his sort-of pre-evolution Phione. To get Phione, you need to breed Manaphy, but Phione can't actually evolve into him, meaning Trainers are still unsure whether to classify them as a singular evolutionary line.
The very first Grass-type legendary, Celebi's control over time makes him deceptively powerful, and we got to examine his joyful nature in the movie Pokémon 4ever.
Type: Grass (Land Forme), Grass/Flying (Sky Forme)
