On Tuesday I was scrolling Twitter and saw this blog post from the official website of Nintendo’s vastly popular Pokémon franchise, which, being a lifelong Pokémon fan, turned on a lightbulb in my head. There are literally hundreds of different Pokémon of all shapes and sizes, accompanied by any combination of skills you could imagine.

So this week’s FanPost Friday prompt is Which Pokémon would you choose for a team?

You can pick any Pokémon from any generation. Did you only play Red and Blue? That’s fine! Are you a brand new fan, tuning into Sun and Moon for the first time? That’s awesome too.

You can copy and paste the list below, then tell us why you picked each. I can’t wait to see the responses!
