Lati@s for me. I mean, they are a combination of a dragon and a plane, and that worked pretty well.

Zekrom and reshiram. I feel that gamefreak put a lot of effort into this, and the turbine and generator as tails was awesome. I also like their wings, body shapes and cries.

The grass starters always grow on me.
Why can't the caterpie and the pidgey be friends? One eats leaves and the other eats caterpie. Oh I see it now.

Garchomp: A different take on the Lati@s idea - dragon/shark/jet plane

Scraggy/Scrafty: Not so much based on a specific animal as something animals do: moulting. Demonstrates not all Pokémon need to be a certain colour associated with their type.

Baltoy/Claydol: Based on doguu, some 2000+ year old style of sculptures.

Wobbuffet/Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan: Rare examples of Pokémon based on specific people.

I'm pretty sure that they're at least partially based off of street punks.

The comedian Sanpei Hayashiya, whose shtick was to touch his forehead with his hand and say, "Sou nansu, oku-san!": "That's the way it is, ma'am!" Sounansu is Wobbuffet's Japanese name.

Pretty much: baggy skin (from moulting) = baggy clothes.

Dunsparce.

I love Dunsparce too <3

Gen 1:
Slowpoke/bro - Pink hippo-like thing that fishes with its tail and has Psychic power
Exeggcute/tor - Egg-like seeds evolving into a coconut tree....with Psychic powers :P
All Nido's - vaguely resemble some real-life animals but are actual quite original monsters.

Gen 2:
Shuckle - based on its origins, and its unique Berry Juice mechanic relating to that
Wobbuffet - though I'm still not sure entirely what it's supposed to be :P a punch-bag with a shadow? [EDIT: ^mind=BLOWN]
Donphan - A relatively small elephant...which rolls around in a ball at high speeds? Ha, cool.

Gen 3:
Shedinja - its origins and unique twist
Slaking - an interesting application of the then-new Abilities, trading larger-than-average power for missing turns
Milotic - a fan favourite that also utilised the contest stats, and draws from multiple influences
Deoxys - while I'm not a fan, it introduced multiple forms (at least with significant differences)

Gen 4:
Vespiquen - simple, not remembered much, but its basis is sound and has several unique moves relating to bee culture
Spiritomb maybe?

Gen 5:
Zoroark - very special ability fitting for its origin
Karrablast / Shelmet - swapping parts of each other's body when traded
Kyurem - while I hope they don't go overboard with this in future, the ability to merge with Reshi/Zek was innovative.
