When it comes to Pokemon, many of us envision loveable and faithful companions who’re always by our side through thick and thin. This is the case for many pre-evolution Pokemon, all bubbly and innocent without a care in the world!

The thing is, there are HUNDREDS of them out there, each charming and captivating in their unique ways. If you’re looking for the most endearing to bring along on your travels, here are the fifteen cutest Pokemon introduced throughout the entire franchise so far:



Region: Kanto
Category: Generation I
Type: Electric

Ash’s Pikachu was ALWAYS going to be number one on any Poke-fan’s cuties list! He’s what many consider the true Pokemon mascot ever since the franchise was created in 1996.

Seen as the greatest of all time (the GOAT, as they say), he’s beaten many Pokemon a hundred times larger than himself in the anime, yet his unparalleled powers don’t get to his head – he’s still as lovable, friendly, and humble to everyone around him.

In Galar, Pikachus can be Dynamaxed to become the destructive Gigantamax Pikachu, towering over buildings. They remain as adorable, though!



Region: Johto
Category: Generation II
Type: Fairy

Nobody can resist the good vibes emanating from the baby Fairy-type Pokemon, Togepi. He’s always smiling and cheerful, yet so irresistibly cute when he’s all glum and moody.

Due to their wholesome nature and behavior, Togepis provide the calming presence many trainers look for during tough times. They aren’t good at battling others, but you wouldn’t want to put such vulnerable Pokemon in situations like that in the first place, right?

Just ask the Water-type gym leader, Misty; her Togepi’s always nestling inside her arms or kept inside her backpack whenever there’s trouble around!



Region: Kanto
Category: Generation I
Type: Normal

Eevees are the closest ‘rival’ to Pikachu’s charm in any Pokemon media. Witty and intelligent, they’re very loyal to their trainers as well.

Eevees’ most defining trait is their biological ability to evolve into different elemental-type Pokemon, such as Leafeon (Grass-type) and Glaceon (Ice-type). Regardless of which you want yours to evolve into, they all share one key characteristic: they remain as winsome as always!

Just like Pikachus, Eevees can also be Dynamaxed in Galar, becoming the large Gigantamax Eevee.



Region: Johto
Category: Generation II
Type: Normal, Fairy

Baby Pokemon are undoubtedly going to pop up a lot on this list, and the next one is Igglybuff, the pre-evolution of Jigglypuff. All round and bouncy, Igglybuffs are naive, gentle Pokemon that can instantly melt anyone’s heart.

While playing, Igglybuffs produce a sweet aroma that soothes the emotions of people nearby, particularly their owners. Interestingly, they can also float in the air up to a certain height, easily mistaken for a pinkish balloon.



Region: Sinnoh
Category: Generation IV
Type: Normal

Happinies make the best companions for toddlers in the Pokemon world, particularly single-child families. They’re playful and sensitive, holding on to any circular item they can find to imitate their bigger counterparts, Chansey and Blissey.

Happinies’ rubbery pouches can store all sorts of small items inside them, including your personal belongings (if you find them missing). Curiously, all Happinies are female, extending to their entire evolutionary line.

The Kanto Rock-type gym leader, Brock, is one of the few people known to care for a Happiny in the anime.



Region: Johto
Category: Generation II
Type: Psychic, Grass

The mythical Pokemon, Celebi, isn’t just a powerful entity capable of traveling through space and time; she embodies good and benevolence, protecting forests under her care.

Multiple Celebies exist, and their supreme life force lets them heal wounds and revive other Celebies from the brink of death. Despite their surprising might, they are peaceful and kind, adding to their appeal as one of the cutest Pokemon ever.



Region: Sinnoh
Category: Generation IV
Type: Grass (Land Forme)/ Grass, Flying (Sky Forme)

Shaymins are another mythical Pokemon, and they’re extremely timid, hiding amongst lush flower fields to avoid people as best as they can. However, if the air around them is contaminated, they’ll come out of hiding to cleanse it, making it breathable for everyone again.

The only known individual to have fostered a Shaymin is the Pokemon trainer, Mallow, from Alola. Shaymins have a superior form they transform into when given a Gracidea flower; the more spirited Sky Forme.



Region: Galar
Category: Generation VIII
Type: Fairy

Even though they’re one of the weirdest Pokemon ever created, Alcremies are just too darling to be grouped with the ugliest Pokemon instead. They’re popular among many bakers, chefs, and dessert lovers, delighting people with their delicious cream-filled berries given to those they trust.

When evolving from Milceries via swirling them with sweets, Alcremies can change into nine different forms depending on the swirling direction (clockwise or anti-clockwise) and time of day mixed.

Alcremies aren’t naturally competent in battle but are among the few Pokemon that can Gigantamax (a special form of Dynamax), becoming huge Gigantamax Alcremies.



Region: Galar
Category: Generation VIII
Type: Grass

Cheerful and merry, Gossifleurs make their trainers’ day better just by being there by their side. Harmonious Pokemon, Gossifleurs sing beautiful melodies whenever they’re happy, channeling positivity to everyone hearing them.

Although they’re commonplace in Galar, Goh’s the only trainer known to have caught one in the anime. Still, they aren’t aggressive Pokemon, so many trainers might be caring for them for other day-to-day purposes, like gardening.



Region: Kalos
Category: Generation VI
Type: Fairy

Among the tiniest and lightest Pokemon in the franchise’s history, Flabebes are flower Pokemon that are overwhelmingly pure and innocent. Some are smaller than the palm of your hand, as a size comparison!

All Flabebes are female, and the flowers they care for come in five colors; red, blue, yellow, orange, and white. These usually differ based on the flower patches that the Flabebes live in, with the white variant being the rarest among them.



Region: Unova
Category: Generation V
Type: Normal

Minccinoes are charming mouse-like Pokemon that are obsessed with cleanliness and hygiene. The clumps of hair under their chin closely resemble a bow tie, fitting perfectly with their pompous appearance and sanitary awareness.

They’re quite popular with young trainers in Unova, especially since they’re easy to find in specific locations around the region. One of Ash’s friends, Bianca, caught one during their adventures, and Minccino’s been on her team ever since.



Region: Kanto
Category: Generation I
Type: Psychic

Possibly the first mythical Pokemon in the entire anime series (others might say Ho-Oh is), Mew’s joyful disposition and mischievous nature hide his immense psychic powers.

Researchers believe his DNA contains genetic traces of every Pokemon in existence, explaining how he can learn nearly every battling move regardless of their elemental typing.

Mew’s formidable prowess makes him a viable Pokemon UNITE jungler, using them to demolish opposition Pokemon quickly. Other abilities that Mew has include shape-shifting and invisibility (literally!), adding to an already-impressive profile of the lovable, pink Pokemon.



Region: Paldea
Category: Generation IX
Type: Water

Palafins are extremely smart dolphin-like Pokemon native to the Paldean seas. They’re commonly mistaken for their pre-evolution, Finizen, due to their similar appearance (Palafins have a heart-shaped marking on their chests, Finizens don’t).

Palafins retain their intense curiosity and playfulness after evolving, always looking for other fish Pokemon to befriend. This makes them very likable, particularly if you’re a marine-life enthusiast who loves the open oceans.

Amazingly, Palafins can change into a battle-ready form if threatened – the Hero Form. In this state, they’re significantly more powerful, making them viable for gym runs as well.



Region: Kalos
Category: Generation VI
Type: Rock, Ice

Resurrected from Sail Fossils, Amauras are ancient Ice-type Pokemon that have been extinct for millions of years, just like the dinosaurs. Because of this, they’re not found in the wild, and only select trainers have them on their teams due to the scarcity of intact Sail Fossils scattered around the world.

Amauras are beautiful and elegant, but it’s their clingy behavior and fragile innocence – possibly due to their unfamiliarity with the new climate and environment – that capture the hearts of many admirers. Surprisingly, they’re mostly born as males, with females being rarer and more valued.



Region: Alola
Category: Generation VII
Type: Normal, Fighting

Stuffuls are irresistible bear Pokemon that are physically stronger than they appear. Only as big as toddlers, they’re all fluffy and adorable until you touch them for too long (think of them as angry cats).

Many trainers still like them regardless of their quick temper, especially if you can read through their early-warning actions. When handled properly, Stuffuls make for the most wonderful and protective small Pokemon you can bring along on your journeys.


These are the fifteen cutest Pokemon you should consider adding to your group. Not only are they emotionally intelligent, but they’re also fun to have as companions!
