Doesn't even eat baguette, are you sure she's French
Y'know, the thing that shows up in the postbit, right above your Pokédex entry.

As for me. Ghost is really just my favorite type and with how shy and socially awkward I am sometimes I might as well be one #NapstablookGang
And as much as I like the concept of some other types, I think I'm the most comfortable in Water. I just really like being in it. (especially when it's not cold.)

What about y'all?

This Pokémon is said to be scared of its own shadow. It can often be found sitting in the rain.
Fairy because I like the whole cutesy fairy aesthetic.
Water because I love being in the water and I'm fascinated by the types of life that exist on the border between water and land. (Wind in the Willows eh?)

Though she often appears sweet and polite, the smell of wrong opinions may cause this pokemon to latch bite.
Flying because it's my favorite type! Fairy cause I feel like there's some crossover between the fairy type and my personality/aesthetic. ^w^

Electric and Ground are awesome types and I feel they fit me as a person. It makes me a Stunfisk, which I gladly accept because Stunfisk is awesome. It's just that simple.

A bizarre Pokémon who dislikes many social activities. She may be lured out of her residential cave with peanut butter.
Grass because I'm a Bulbasaur, Steel because I code and it's the closest thing to something machine-related.

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Also a major Twitch Plays Pokemon lorewriter. Rather be a happy shill than an angry critic.
Fairy type is because I'm super into mythical creatures. Clever is because I'd like to think I'm really smart, although honestly I've been feeling less smart as I've gotten older and realized just how darn complicated the world is.

This Pokemon only rarely leaves it's cave to hunt down birbs. Oftentimes, it can only be spotted by it's strange aura in the sky.
Fairy Thunder.

I like Fairy Types. Mostly cause they tend to beat everything into the ground. Including the actual Ground types. Nice Ascetic. Bewear the Quiver Dance Ribombee Sweeps.

Dark is mostly the fact I like Fairy-Dark typing. There aren't any though, sadly. Also Spiritomb and other dark types like Darkrai and Zoroark

can be bribed with shiny objects and spices to do household repairs. utterly incapable of many things, but does them anyway
I'm pretty sure dang near everyone that knows me associates me with grass for one reason or another

Fire is trickier but it's a mix of astrology and apparently (apparently!) personality stuff that started as jokes and then started to stick

It never quite knows what it's doing. Yet, somehow, things still get done.
I switch part of it up between my favorite types... but always keep '???' because 1: glitch pokemon rock, and 2, I exist in a perpetual state of mild confusion & that reflects it well |D

Part Cyndaquil, part Mudkip, entirely ridiculous. Icon by https://rileykitty.tumblr.com!
TBH I'd actually like to have Water/Psychic because those are my two favourite types, but I stick with Fire/Water because I'm committed to the Cyndakip Aesthetic

Ghost, Normal
Pokédex Entry
This friendly ghost lurks around old haunts and sites of interest, and likes to say hi. (Profile pic came from https://picrew.me/image_maker/114808)
Normal/Ghost is a really neat typing with some cool things that it's immune to. But as well as being a normal person, I... kinda feel very very different from how I used to be and how I once acted. I often feel like I'm carrying the memories of completely different person's (much more purposeful and optimistic) outlook, and old motivations with me. I think this typing just suits me best out of all of them

Well you DO seem to pick the Grass Starter more often than not. And then there's your interest in plants, and some other stuff I don't know if I should disclose.

As for me, Fire because I almost always pick the Fire type Starter, and Dark because I'm a night owl and like nighttime better. Or you could just say I'm trying to be edgy, like a certain someone once did.
