Top 15: Orange Pokemon

We Kinde ladies love to collect things, so it makes perfect sense (to us, at least) that our favorite video game is Pokemon.

For our theme this month at #MGCarousel, we collected just a few of our favorite Pokemon who come in various shades of orange. Have you caught ’em all?


15. Mothim

This Bug/Flying type Pokemon only evolves from a male Burmy, which makes it a bit of a tough critter to collect. This lovely orange-and-tan moth is well worth the hours of battling those pesky little bundles, though.

14. Magikarp

Magikarp is an iconic Pokemon and a running gag in the series, and yes, it’s actually reddish-orange, not orangish-red. You learn something new every day!

13. Teddiursa

We’re aware that these adorable little trouble-makers evolve into the fierce and terrifying Ursaring, but we just can’t say no to that sweet little face.



12. Paras

This cute little Bug/Grass type Pokemon has a unique, symbiotic relationship with the mushrooms on its back, which eventually take over Paras’s body when it evolves into Parasect. Kind of gross, but hey, it’s a bug.



11. Torchic

One of the starter Pokemon from the Hoenn region, this sweet little Fire type chick will kick some serious butt someday. They grow up too fast…



10. Trapinch

Elza voted in Trapinch, a ground-type with some serious jaw power. These tough little insectoids live in the desert and create pits in order to trap prey. We’d be more scared if it wasn’t so cute-looking.



09. Arcanine

You’ll need a Fire Stone to evolve Growlithe into Arcanine, but we think this magnificent Fire type is worth it.



08. Mudsdale

A recent edition to our favorites, Mudsdale is an Alolan Pokemon that you actually get to ride on in-game. It’s tough, it’s cool, it’s orange!


07. Chimchar

A Fire type starter from Sinnoh that is almost always found on CJ’s team. Chimchar is, in our opinion, the cutest little monkey-inspired creature of the franchise. And, as a bonus, its evolutions are totally awesome.



06. Pumpkaboo

We love that Jessie from Team Rocket had a Pumpkaboo, because it’s one of our favorites, too. Fun fact: Elza caught a shiny Pumpkaboo in Pokemon X&Y!



05. Fennekin

Speaking of X&Y, here’s Fennekin, the Fire starter from Kalos. Because who can resist a fire fox? We can’t.



04. Solrock

This Rock/Psychic Pokemon is seriously underrated. Solrock is a work of art, super tough, and has a really cool moon-themed counterpart, Lunatone.


03. Deerling

Deerling is a Pokemon that comes in a variety of colors. Brown in the winter, pink in the spring, green for summer, and autumn orange. We love having options!



02. Charizard

You can’t do an Orange Pokemon Appreciation without coming around to Charizard. The final form of the Fire starter from Kanto, this dragon-like Pokemon is iconic and kicks some serious butt.



01. Vulpix

Our favorite orange Pokemon? The original crowd-pleasing Fire type fox, Vulpix! Fussy, elegant, and utterly adorable, this little six-tailed beauty will evolve into Ninetails if you happen to have a Fire Stone, although, why would you want to mess with perfection?




Did we leave out one of your favorite orange Pokemon? Let us know which ones you’d put on your team!
