    What are "Signature Pokemon"? They are the Ace Pokemon, the strongest of the strong, the most well-known team member, the representation of their trainers. Usually there's only one signature Pokemon but in rare cases like N's team, there can be more than one. Anyways the list is the Favorite Signature Pokemon of the Unova region. Also keep in mind, signature Pokemon are based on only the games. No Pokemon Adventures manga, no Pokemon anime, just the games.

    The list below is just my personal categorization of what I think are the signature Pokemon of each trainers. These are my opinions and do not necessarily represent what the overall fanbase believes. Feel free to disagree or point out anything you feel missing. The Subway Bosses were excluded to a lack of anything that resembles a signature Pokemon.

    Chandelure: this ghost candelabra decorated with gothic flames is my favourite Pokémon. Its palette pretty much reflects the colours of the darkness and Ghost/Fire is such an enchanting type combination.
    Leavanny: this leafy bug looks so sleek and beautiful. Its bright, green colours are perfection.
    Haxorus: this dragon is as beautiful as gold. Gotta love the numerous killer characteristics of its figure and the Attack stat.

    Ignition Stop neglecting my sad bois GameFreak.

    I love the Elemental Monkeys so the Striation Triplets are probably my favorite. Burgh’s Leavanny and Elesa’s Zebstrika are also up there. Hydreigon, Klinklang, Chandelure, Volcarona, & Haxorus are honorary mentions. I like that GF kept the trend going of all the signature Pokèmon fitting their respective Trainers.

    I'd say N's Zorua, which was adorable. He never used it in the Isshu games as far as I can recall, but I liked how it was shown with him as a kid in the Black and White game opening.

    I think you meant Zinzolin, not Rood.
    I'll go with Haxorus. It looks cool, has a great shiny form, hits very hard and has Mold Breaker, negating abilities such as Sturdy.
    I also quite like Zoroark, Swanna, Chandelure, Mienshao and Hydreigon.

    You are correct on that. On a side note, have you noticed that Weavile is a very popular team member on villainous teams?

    That Hydreigon and its Movepool. Yeeeeeeesh.
    What’s worse is I, usually, never have anything on my teams to effectively check and/or counter it knowing damn well I’m going to run into it at some point.

    Hydreigon is a favorite of mine in many categories, and I like that it gives me somewhat of a challenge when I play the games.

    I never had a proper counter for it either, and I normally struggled to defeat it. I thought that out of all the Gen V ace Pokemon, Sazandora (Hydreigon) was the most annoying one.
