    With Pokemon Sun & Moon Version and Generation 7 just around the corner I started looking back on the previous generations. Going through the Pokedex I realized several Pokemon seem to be more iconic and others not so much.

    I feel like some people are going on what is their favourite pokemon, rather than what is "iconic"

    Personally I would say that the most iconic pokemon of each generation are as follows:

    1) Pikachu 2) Togepi 3)Blaziken 4) Lucario 5) Zoroark 6) Greninja

    Personally, I think that these pokemon are the ones from each generation that are most hyped up, not only in the main series games, but in the side games, the main anime, the movies, and other media.

    IMO:

    Gen 1 - Pikachu
    Gen 2 - Suicune
    Gen 3 - Rayquaza
    Gen 4 - Arceus or Lucario
    Gen 5 - Zoroark
    Gen 6 - Greninja
