* StoneWall: One of the premier physical examples. Its 140 base Defense lets it easily take neutral physical hits before healing them off with Roost, its typing is the second-best defensive typing in the game ([[http://www.pokewiki.de/Rangliste_der_Typanf%C3%A4lligkeit according to the German pokewiki's]] calculations), and it has all the right moves to make sure it can stay on the battlefield as long as possible while frustrating the enemy with indirect damage.

The second Legendary Trio. This trio is based on mythical beasts with characteristics of felines and canines, and their elements correspond to the circumstances of the incident of the Brass Tower that learn to the building's partial destruction and took away their previous lives. Raikou is a saber-toothed tiger bulldog [[{{Youkai}} raiju]], representing the lightning that struck the tower, Entei is a either a Chinese guardian lion or a chow, embodiment of the fire that brought the tower down, and Suicune is a cheetah- or wolf-like qilin which corresponds to the rain that quenched the fire. They are the first of many, ''many'' Pokémon that will flee on sight, which is ''really'' annoying. Special measures must be taken to ensure their capture. Suicune is the mascot of ''Crystal''.

* GetBackHereBoss: When they appear in the overworld in ''Gold and Silver'', ''[=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'', and ''[=HeartGold=] and [=SoulSilver=]'', they'll quickly jump from one random location in the wild to another every time you enter a new area. They can be drawn out by spamming Repels (which do not stave off extremely strong Pokémon) and repeatedly entering and exiting an area where wild Pokémon can appear. Once you encounter one, they ''will'' try to run from you at every opportunity, even if put to sleep (apparently masters of sleepwalking- er, sleep''running''), and '''[[BeyondTheImpossible even if you completely froze it in solid ice]].'''

* MagikarpPower: Like most [[InfinityMinusOneSword psuedo-legendaries]], it evolves at high levels and levels up slowly. This is not helped by its terrible defensive typing. But once it does, you've got a tank on your hands. Larvitar does naturally learn Rock Slide early, giving it a workable move to use.

Wobbuffet and its baby form Wynaut are a pair of [[LethalJokeCharacter Lethal Joke Characters]]. This is since a pair of Wobbuffet can [[SealedEvilInADuel lock themselves into a neverending duel]].

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 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.

* MetalSlime: A rare encounter from Headbutting trees in ''Gold, Silver, and Crystal'' and ''[=HeartGold=] and [=SoulSilver=]'' and even rarer in ''Diamond,Pearl, and Platinum'' thanks to the [[UseYourHead Headbutt mechanic]] being replaced by [[WeWait Honey Trees]]. Averted in the other games it appears in where it's a normal encounter.
* MightyGlacier: Massive Attack with an arsenal of offensive Abilities, with its other stats (aside from Special Attack, which is poor and not really called upon anyway) being at least decent. It's not really fast, though, and has no way of boosting its Speed on its own. Its Mega Evolution takes this even further, slightly lowering its speed while improving its defenses and a massive boost to Attack.

* SuperStrength: These things are described to able to lift and throw 100 times their own weight, meaning on average they could lift 5400 kg of weight. Even if that's a stretch as the Pokedex entries are known to make, they are still seen in the Anime as capable of throwing a Donphan, which is 120 kg. Still impressive. This strength is a reference to the rhinoceros beetle, which is able to lift 850 times its own weight.

* MightyGlacier: In contrast to most Electric-type Pokémon, which are {{Fragile Speedster}}s or {{Lightning Bruiser}}s. Its Mega Evolution is this even more so, as it loses some speed while gaining better defenses, Attack, and a huge boost to Special Attack. For extra fun, the line can naturally learn Cotton Guard, raising its Defense by ''three stages''.

Probably one of the best known Pokémon of the second Generation, due to the persistent rumors of "Pikablu": A [[WaterIsBlue blue]] [[KidAppealCharacter Pikachu]]-like Pokémon, as well as being one of the first Gen II mons in the anime. Which could describe this family to a tee. These aquatic rodents were initially only found in a single location, Mt. Mortar, but good luck running into one, since they were extremely rare. Being made more common was just one of the improvements later generations would bring, and they also received an ability called Huge Power, which basically doubled its Attack stat, and a baby form. In Generation VI, all three members of the line [[RetCon gained the Fairy-type]].

A pair of owls. In Generation II, they take on the role as ComMons during the night, but are nowhere to be seen during the day. Hoothoot is designed with a obvious clock theme and does in fact -- appearing otherwise -- have two feet. Upon evolving to Noctowl, it takes on a appearance more akin to a "normal" owl.

This evolution line of Normal Pokémon are largely associated with happiness, luck, and peace. They are also incredibly rare; despite having their debut in Generation II, the only place they are found in the wild is Sinnoh and Unova[[note]]''White'' Version only, in White Forest[[/note]], and that is only Togepi and not its evolutions. Thankfully, you are usually given a Egg to hatch a Togepi yourself, [[OnceASeason spawning a tradition of being given a free egg with a rare baby Pokémon in it once a game]]. In ''X and Y'', the Togepi line was {{retcon}}ned to Fairy-types.
