The Top 10 Cutest Fighting-Type Pokémon

These Pokemon might look cute and cuddly but beware once they start fighting

The Fighting-type Pokemon is one of the most popular types. It’s no wonder there are so many cute ones to choose from! 

We will be discussing Top Ten cutest fighting-type Pokemon. We won’t be including any of the super or hyper types. Just the cute and cuddly ones!

*List does not include Eevee (normal), Charizard (fire), Vaporeon/Jolteon/Flareon (water).* 

First up is….

1. Keldeo

Keldeo Pokemon kicking legs in the air.

Keldeo is a Water/Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation 5. While its unicorn-like body is soft on the eyes, this Pokemon is fierce in battle. This Pokemon has no evolved form, but it is still one of the cut. 

In Ordinary Form, Keldeo resembles a small unicorn referring to the horn on its head. Its tail is also light blue in color. It has long, dark blue eyebrows and a red mane. Its body is somewhat slender and it has a rather fat yet well-toned rump. On the ends of its legs are dark blue hooves.

In Resolute Form, Keldeo’s dark blue eyebrows turn into smaller light blue eyebrows, and its horn is now bigger and dark blue. On its mane it now has three feathers, matching the colors for the others in the trio, green, orange, and blue.

2. Lucario 

It’s a fighting Pokemon that evolves from Riolu. Lucario was the first Fighting-type Starter Pokémon in any game, excluding the original Red and Blue games. The form it takes upon evolution depends on its gender: male to female ratio of 25%. 

It also has two signature moves called Aura Sphere and Extreme Speed. The former move is more powerful than Hyper Beam or Giga Impact but with a lower accuracy rating while Extreme Light needs less time to charge at half power when compared to other fire type moves like Solar Beam or Fire Blast making this pokemon perfect for quick battles!

3. Mankey

Who would have thought the cross between a pig and a monkey could be so adorable?  From the original Pokemon games, Mankey is a fighting type Pokemon that evolves from Primeape. It’s known for being strong and irritable and gets angry when it sees an opponent weaker than itself!  It will then rampage until it falls asleep, but its anger remains in its dreams. An adorable site that I think even Giovanni will appreciate. 

4. Machop 

Machop is well-known for its powerful muscles which they use in battle to throw punches with enough. But in its first line of evolution, Machop’s childlike demeanor is nothing shy of cute. 

There are also plenty of other cute aspects about this pokemon as well including its little pink nose and adorable eyes that make you want to hug him tight (and after all that training what he could do with his arms!) 

It might seem intimidating at first but once you get past those brawny looks there are more than a few reasons why we think these fighters deserve their top spot!

The second evolution form of the fighting type Pokemon, Machoke is a powerhouse worth its weight in gold. It’s got incredible strength and can learn some really powerful moves like Cross Chop or Karate Chop which it will use to pound on opponents while using Bulk Up for an attack boost. 

5. Stufful 

Stufful is a Pokemon that evolves from Bewear.  Its cute, cuddly appearance makes it one of the cutest fighting type Pokemon! Stufful’s first two moves are Fling and Tackle. Stufful can also use Yawn which puts its opponents to sleep by yawning loudly at them. Simply… KAWAII ❤❤❤

6. Combusken

Everyone thinks Combusken is cute. It has a rare combination of features that make it irresistibly adorable. From its happy and energetic personality to its fiery orange-red color, there is not one thing about this pokemon that isn’t adorable! But don’t let Combusken’s delightful looks deceive you. It can learn powerful moves like Focus Energy, and with its speed, it’s a really dangerous opponent.

7. Pancham 

Pancham is a cute Pokemon that resembles a small teddy bear. It evolves from Pangoro if it has max happiness in its level-up process! Look at the face on this adorable fighting type Pokemon and tell me you’re not dying to hold one as your pet? 

But what exactly is it that makes Pancham so adorable? Is it the way their little arms are outstretched in an “I’m hugging you” kind of pose? Or maybe it’s the teddy bear-like fur on their face and head that they can hide behind when they get shy? 

8. Scraggy 

Scraggy evolves from Scrafty, who has a cute appearance when it’s young. But as it grows older and starts to battle more, the ‘putties in a rug’ look of this Pokemon changes into something that is not to be messed with. I think you’ll agree its round and cuddly head.

9. Monferno

Monferno is a fighting type Pokemon that evolves from Monochromatic. This cute Pokemon resembles the rare Pokémon Infernape, which has been known to be one of the most powerful fire-type Pokemon in existence.

10. Gallade 

Gallade might frighten most people, with his gladiator-like head and appendages coming out of his back, but let’s face it he’s pretty darn cute for a fighting type Pokemon. His color scheme reminds you of a quaint Italian restaurant, where the owner hand cooks all his pizzas.  

We’d love to hear your thoughts on today’s blog? Do you agree with the list, who’d be in your top ten list
