lol, completely missed this thread. This is really cool though.

Surprisingly easy to pick for some of these categories, because I don't really like many grass, electric, rock, ground, bug, poison, ghost, ice, steel, or fairy Pokemon.

My favourite types are definitely Dark & Fire. Almost always pick fire starter, except X&Y.

Outside of legendaries, I don't feel like that there are too many interesting psychic Pokemon.

Dark-type is too awesome, which is why subsequent generations tried to balance it with Steel & Fairy types

Fire and Psychic have been my favourite types since Gen 1.

Favourite non-legendary psychic Pokemon throughout each generation?
Because aside from Alakazam, I don't really like them that much.

Interestingly, just looking through the list of fire Pokemon, generation 1 had all around amazing fire Pokemon, but in subsequent generations, the really cool ones are the starter Pokemon, and then they get sort of more sparse.

Let's see:

Gen 1: Alakazam
Gen 2: Slowking (Espeon)
Gen 3: Metagross (Gardevoir)
Gen 4: Gallade? (love its Mega form)
Gen 5: Darmanitan-Zen??
Gen 6: Delphox
Gen 7: Alolan Raichu

I guess I have to agree that the options become a lot less appealing after Gen 3.
I think it's pretty arbitrary to exclude legendaries, though.

Regarding non-starter, non-legendary Fire types post-Gen 1, there are still a lot of designs I really like: Houndoom, Volcarona, Talonflame, Pyroar, Salazzle, Turtonator...

My team is always Alakazam, Mewtwo, Mew when possible, then whatever utility crap to back them up (Dark pokemon, HM whore like Kingler). I only play with my favorites, balance and variety be damned.

The reason I say try picking non-legendary, is because I feel that legendary Pokemon are cool because they're legendary, not because of their typing.

Out of the non-legendary psychic Pokemon, I also like Gallade, Starmie, and Metagross (more for its strong typing than its design).

Post gen-1 non-starter fire types I like include Houndoom and Talonflame.

Whereas dark Pokemon, I like Umbreon, Absol, Sneasel (and subsequently Weavile), Houndoom, Tyranitar, Sableye, Spiritomb, Honchkrow, Zoroark, Bisharp, Hydreigon, Pangoro, Greninja & Incineroar.

Realistically speaking, if you have Mewtwo, you'll get through most things lol

I can't exactly remember my main teams, but I think gen 1 was Charizard, Pidgeot, Lapras, Kabutops, Zaptos, Mewtwo. Gen 2 was Typhlosion, Red Gyarados, Lugia, Umbreon, Skarmory, Tyranitar.
