20 Cutest Pokémon of all Time (RANKED)

20 Cutest Pokémon of all Time (RANKED)

Pokémon, which is short for Pocket Monsters, is a Japanese media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori back in 1995. It is a fantasy franchise set in a world where humans live together with creatures called Pokémon, who take on different shapes and sizes. It started off as a series of video games for the Game Boy console, but soon expanded to other media. Video games and anime (including connected films) are the most popular brands today, although the franchise has expanded to even live-action movies like Pokémon Detective Pikachu.

The franchise also includes trading cards, toys, and other merchandise. As you might have deduced, today’s article is going to be about Pokémon, but it is going to be a rather unusual one. Namely, we have decided to evaluate the visual aspect of these creatures, as we are going to give you the ultimate list of the cutest Pokémon to appear in the PokéDex. This list is going to include various Pokémon from all VIII generations and we have really done our best to pick the cutest among them.

The list is going to include a total of 20 Pokémon, which will be ranked from 20th to 1st spot, with the 1st one being the cutest. You’re going to see what each of the 20 Pokémon looks like and receive some basic information about them, courtesy of our friends at Bulbapedia. Enjoy!
