List Rules Vote up your favorite rodent-inspired Pokémon, which includes mice, rats, squirrels, chipmunks, and other adorable rodents.

Let’s face it, rodents tend to get a bad rap. As the unofficial bottom-dwellers of the Pokéverse, rodent Pokémon are often dismissed as being ineffectual, weak, or even lame. But when you take a deep dive, you’ll soon realize that some of the coolest Pokémon are, in fact, rodents. You got Marill, Nioran, and, of course, the one and only Pikachu.

These ground-type Pokémon are super effective against fire and electric types. In fact, ground Pokémon are often considered some of the strongest in the game. Do you have a favorite rodent Pokémon you like to use?

This list includes rodent Pokémon from Generation 1 up to Generation 8, so take a look and vote the best ones up to the top. Don’t see your favorite rodent? Add them to the list.
