Has your favorite animal been made into a Pokemon?

Tiger, so Raikou, but I would prefer a non-legendary because I try not to use legendaries. A Fire tiger starter next generation would make me incredibly happy.

My favorite animals are foxes. We have Vulpix, Zorua (which is also an illusionist, generally my favorite type of character/class), and now Fennekin.

Badger, Typhlosion is based off of one.
You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Girafarig is a Giraffe I guess but I don't really like it.
I'm not your bro, bro.

Crossing my fingers for a koala, hopefully a grass starter.

Nope. They still don't have a regular wolf.

Manectric doesn't count, as I think it's based on a Yokai :(

Take the Japanese lore with a grain of salt. According to BP it's based off a maned wolf and is certainly canid.

Raikou is the only pokemon we can be certain is based off of said yokai. Manectric might be but on the other hand the yokai in question is basically just shapeshifting thunder energy so any electric typed predatory mammal based pokemon can fit the criteria it seems.

Yes my favorite animal has been made into a pokemon, Bears.
Second favorite animal is a buffalo and we got that last gen.

Yep, Hippowdon is a hippo. :D That thing is an in-game killer, and Hippopotas is adorable.
Notable mentions:

Bats: Too many. But Noivern and Gliscor are my favorites, even if the latter is based on a scorpion. It looks like a bat.

Monkeys: Infernape is probably the best.

Hyena: Mightyena. Eh.

Octopus/Squid: Octillery is kinda dumb, but Malamar is a boss. Great addition.

Raikou since a lot people say he resembles a tiger.
