Top 10 cute Pokemon

Who is the most adorable Pokemon?

Serious players on the competitive scene may scoff, but there's a reason why Pikachu is the most famous Pokemon: he's adorable. But is he the cutest? Join us as we count down the top 10 cute Pokemon.

Oh, and you voted for it so don't blame us for the lack of Tepig!

10. Butterfree

Butterfree
Butterfree
It's not often that a final evolution of a Pokemon is prettier than its first stage. Cooler, yes, but not cuter. That all changes with Butterfree, who evolves from the Worm Pokemon Cartepie and the Cocoon Pokemon Metapod. It might look beautiful and delicate, but Butterfree is more dangerous than your common-or-garden hedgerow flutterer, because when it flaps its wings it unleashes toxic dust into the air. Now that's what we call a butterfly effect.

  2. Dan-the-Wii-man Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:01

    Togepi wasn't Red/Blue... Just sayin' ;)

  3. Tamzily01 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:02

    The lack of Emolga disappoints me. SEVERELY disappoints me. Still, you can't always get what you hope for. :roll:

  4. Toastie Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:04

    Glad to see Togekiss on this list! Disappointed at the lack of Trubbish though...:(

  5. Slinkington Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:06

    I don't think I agree with any of these choices. It's more like a list of "Pokemon I think have a really nice design". Here's my list of what I consider to be "cute" Pokemon, off the top of my head:

    10. Cinccino
    9. Emolga
    8. Jumpluff
    7. Minun/Pulsle
    6. Chickorita
    5. Pichu
    4. Chansey
    3. Oddish
    2. Togepi
    1. Igglybuff

    No, no, no! Zorua is not cute!.. and where the heck is Mew!? That little pink floaty pile of sweetness is cute enough to make anyone wanna catch it, never mind it being a legendary! ONM, you're doing it wrong! :shock:

  7. King Slazo Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:11

    Charmander made it in, so I guess I can't complain.

    But Snorlax? Cute? Really?

  8. lrwr14 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:21

    What about Growlithe? The cute little pup.

  9. CDS Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:31

    Lack of Eevee or any Eeveelutions.
    Either Espeon or Flareon should be on that list.

    HOLD IT :!:
    You already published this article months ago! I remember reading it!!

  11. Latte Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:43

    Can't say I find many of these cute...Just think about it. Butterfree , Eevee. which one is REALLY the cutest?

    Look at dp for more evidence <<<<<

  12. vtheyoshi Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 16:51

    Where the hell's Rayquaza? Oh wait............

  13. Lil Gracie Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 17:10

    No Oshawott? How can this be?! ;-;

  14. OrangeRakoon Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 17:14

    Pikachu is still the most recognisable Pokemon and the subject of a terrible joke about getting said Pokemon on the bus

    How dare you. Boycott ONM

  15. zelda-legend93 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 17:16

    I swear you are running out of decent things to write about these days....

  16. Argenthor Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 17:23

  17. Shmilly Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 18:08

    Victini. 10/10 would hug. Or Mew, for that matter.

  18. Satamer Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 18:11

  19. DynamicPunch202 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 18:17

    What about Spheal? How dare you miss out that adorable little ball of fun!

  20. yoshimad Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 19:05

    Where is Eevee? hahah or Riolu, or Poochyena? They are pretty cute =333 I don't agree with Raichu - it annoys me, its all about Pikachu!

  21. Mew3 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 19:30

    HOLD IT :!:
    You already published this article months ago! I remember reading it!!


    Me too!

  22. Mew3 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 19:33

    No, no, no! Zorua is not cute!.. and where the heck is Mew!? That little pink floaty pile of sweetness is cute enough to make anyone wanna catch it, never mind it being a legendary! ONM, you're doing it wrong! :shock:


    I agree, if they don't put mew on here i won't buy there magazine :evil:
    (this isn't true, but i'll still be annoyed)

  23. fisher2007 Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 22:00

    Charmander made it in, so I guess I can't complain.

    But Snorlax? Cute? Really?

    snorlax isn't cute also really fat.

  24. sciqueen Friday 7th Dec 2012 at 23:59

    Charmander is cuter than Squirtle! Who voted for Togekiss over Togepi?! Where is MEW?

    But I am happy that Raichu made the list <3

  25. GullibleGoat44 Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 08:13

    What about Spheal? How dare you miss out that adorable little ball of fun!


    No no no spheal is horrible

  26. mushroomchow Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 11:40

    No Wooper? No Quagsire? No Spoink? No Weedle? No Diglett? No Shellder? No Omanyte? No Foongus? No Rufflet? No DUCKLETT?

    NO WOOPER? NO DUCKLETT? NO WOOPER? NO DUCKLETT?????!?!?!?!

    And what the hell is Butterfree doing on there? It's an ugly motherflipper. Even Caterpie is cuter, hands-down, so the "evolution cuter than it's previous forms" argument is bull dookie.

    ONM forumites, your list is bad and you should feel bad.

  27. CDS Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 13:43

    The evolution cuter than it's previous form only works with the Eeveelutions. Except maybe Jolteon.

  28. me4ndubz Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 15:16

    Eevee should have been on this list! Raichu is not that cute

  29. IG-42 Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 20:09

    what about eevee? and mudkip? and oshawott?

  30. Kokiri Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 20:22

    Awww no Chikorita ;_; but I'm glad Togekiss is up there!

  31. DarkBladeXIII Saturday 8th Dec 2012 at 21:07

    i admit i wouldnt call Zorua cute, smug maybe or even cunning but never cute. there are much cuter pokemon, like mew or oddish, I must also inquire to the whereabouts of Bulbasaur in this syndetic list of yours, the 'mon is way cuter than a blob like togekiss

  32. Nickario Sunday 9th Dec 2012 at 20:10

    Glad to see Dragonite in the top 3, I always thought it looked really huggable x3 but yeah as mentioned it's a very specialized attack Pokemon too so it can wipe the floor as well.

  33. pikachu101 Sunday 9th Dec 2012 at 23:03

    How is oshawott not on here, he is the cutest pokemon ive ever seen :D

  34. Linkfan42 Tuesday 11th Dec 2012 at 18:25

    No Pachirisu, Emolga, Shinx, Oshawott or Victini? Or what about Torchic, Piplup, Manaphy, Phione, Riolu, Eevee or Snorunt? And let's not forget Castform, Cyndaquil, Chikorita, Mew, Celebi or Jirachi either.

  35. Lil Gracie Tuesday 18th Dec 2012 at 20:46

    What about Spheal? How dare you miss out that adorable little ball of fun!

  36. Tippydaug Thursday 1st Aug 2013 at 18:40

    Pikachu should be No. 1, Sqirtle No. 2. Snorlax should be replaced with Tepig also! Snorlax is fat and ugly, not cute. *sigh*

  37. PkmnTrainer75 Tuesday 3rd Jun 2014 at 23:18

    NO MINCCINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:( .Its One Of The Cutest Pokemon Ever
    To Me

  38. PkmnTrainer75 Tuesday 3rd Jun 2014 at 23:22

    No Wooper? No Quagsire? No Spoink? No Weedle? No Diglett? No Shellder? No Omanyte? No Foongus? No Rufflet? No DUCKLETT?
