An Ice/Flying-type that's a cross between a penguin and Santa Claus. It's talented at delivering presents in its tail, which looks like the jolly old elf's bag. What it isn't talented in is battling. The only attack that it learns by leveling is Present, a move exclusive to it that does random amounts of damage or even ''heals'' the target. The only redeeming quality it might have is that it can have Hustle (an ability that boosts damage but lowers accuracy) and can be taught Aerial Ace (a move that never misses and gets a same type attack bonus), but that's only one pro it has agains many cons. It's only found in ''Silver'' and its remake (''Gold'' players get Gligar instead).

Here is a strange dog Pokémon. It has a seemingly boring appearance and can only learn a single move naturally. That said, it uses that one move to learn almost ''every other move in the game''[[note]]Everything except Struggle and Chatter[[/note]]. Practically every move combination is possible! The one thing holding Smeargle back is its very low stats, most likely to balance out its tremendous movepool.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: That bipedal beatnik-beagle of a joke Pokémon is the same one that can learn every attack (save Struggle and Chatter, and while it can learn Hyperspace Fury it can't use it) in the game. What does that mean to you? It means that it can copy and use the signature attacks of the legendaries. It's like having Ditto, Mew (with Transform), or a Clefairy or Clefable with Metronome, all in one convinent package.

Despite appearing as a pinecone/hand grenade and later as a clam/boulder hybrid, it's actually a Bug-type, specifically one based on a bagworm. With its high defenses and a typing that leaves it with a single weakness (which is regretfully a quad weakness), it's a very good choice as a defensive wall.

* WingsDoNothing: It can flutter short distances, but as far as the games are concerned it's only aesthetic. It's not clear what the wings are even for, since Dunsparce spend a great deal of time underground. As a consolation prize, it does get [[HealingFactor Roost]] as a level up move.

Snubbull and Granbull are based on bulldogs. They used to be Normal-types, but in Generation VI, they were changed to pure Fairy-types, and as such are one of the toughest looking fairies in the game.

What's there to say about this Water/Poison pufferfish Pokémon? It's not as prominent in the Pokémon seas as Tentacool and Tentacruel, but well... Um... It seemed to come up a lot in discussions of forgettable Pokémon, [[MindScrew which makes it unforgettable in the ironic sense]]. However, later generations have been kinder to it, giving it a few more toys to play with.

This creature is supposed to be a scale insect, but it resembles a worm-like creature that lives inside a moon rock. This Bug and Rock type lives a sedentary life underneath a rock where it stores berries in its shell and slowly ferments them into a juice. Its stats are a collection of extremes: boasting the highest base defenses of all Pokémon (230, each!), but having some of the lowest stats in everything else including, sadly enough, its HP. While its defenses suggest support use by means of Toxic and Encore, the bug is insanely crippled by Taunt and Substitute, meaning that it can't do anything once it's distracted.

Another Pokémon based on a Youkai, Sneasel and Weavile are Kamaitachi. Weasels that move like the wind and slice unsuspecting victims. Which explains their Dark and Ice typings.

Teddiursa is an adorable bear cub that's often depicted as sucking on one of its paws. Naturally, it evolves into a terrifying adult bear with the appropriate muscle. Both its normal abilities are activated when it receives a status effect, either raising its attack with Guts or raising its speed with Quick Feet. Either way, you're in big trouble when that happens. Strangely enough, it is a version exclusive, but which version depended on the language. It's in the ''Silver'' version in the Japanese games, but ''Gold'' in the North American releases. In stays in ''[=SoulSilver=]'' for the remake.
