Going by the thread's much-ignored instructions:
-"Anything you name I'll assume that includes its evolutionary relatives."
-"[D]on't post a Pokemon for a specific type that is secondary that type, unless it is flying type of course, and even then try to keep it Normal/Flying."
Bug: Volcarona (Bug/Fire). It's great in battle, quite high-maintenance, and a more interesting Bug/Fire Poke than that Volbeat evolution people kept asking for.
Dark: Scrafty (Dark/Fighting). Has atypical colours for its type, emphasing a more modern, urban definition of Dark. Also bulky and very battleworthy.
Dragon: Gible (Dragon/Ground). It's awfully cute and has good shiny colours, which gives it the edge over its evolutions for me.
Electric: Eelektross (Electric). Good movepool. IMO there should be more non-mammalian Electrics and more non-Water aquatic Pokémon.
Fighting: Hitmontop (Fighting). Decent bulk and good movepool, especially priority. So striking that I remember seeing it for the first time back in Gen II previews.
Fire: Heatran (Fire/Steel). Tremendous in battle. Almost an Easter Egg for its obscurity in-game. Now if it could be bred...
Flying: Togekiss (Normal/Flying). Great movepool and Togepi is probably my favourite Baby Pokémon.
Ghost: Spiritomb (Ghost/Dark). Interesting origins and good bulk - favourite Gen IV Pokémon overall.
Grass: Victreebel (Grass/Poison). Carnivorous plants are awesome IRL, natch. Stockpile is fun even if it's not the best user of it.
Ground: Stunfisk (Ground/Electric). Bulky and a nice reminder that GF still puts non-Water Pokémon in aquatic areas for more varied encounters, cf. Eelektross.
Ice: Cryogonal (Ice). (Specially) bulky yet fast enough to deter Dragons. Ice-types should be built to outspeed Garchomp and co., making their weaknesses moot.
Normal: Porygon (Normal). As expected. 2 and Z are equally battleworthy. A throwback to when Normal-types weren't just early route rodents and birds.
Poison: Skorupi (Poison/Bug). Cute and Acupressure is my favourite move. Drapion is bulky and surprisingly fast.
Psychic: Deoxys (Psychic). Not really fond of Psychic-types, but Deoxys has a great movepool, interesting concept and I'm fond of statistical extremes.
Rock: Lileep (Rock/Grass). Many options and adapts to the weather. Bulky too and great concept.
Steel: Metagross (Steel/Psychic). Bulky and yet another seemingly artificial Pokémon - I seem to lean towards those.
Water: Cloyster (Water/Ice). Favourite overall - has bulk, great moves and an awesome smirk.
Normal: Contest between Snorlax and Dunsparce.
Flying: Noctowl or Swellow.
Ground: Golurk, maybe Claydol.
Bug: Masquerain, Yanmega, Scizor, Genesect, Galvantula, I dunno.
Fire: Blaziken is my favourite Pokémon, but aside from that I love tons of Fire-types. Entei, Torkoal, and Camerupt come to mind.
Water: Feraligatr, as well as Politoed, Octillery, Suicune, Qwilfish, and Ludicolo.
Grass: Grovyle, Cacnea, Tropius, and Shiftry. First two cuz of the anime, last two cuz of old game teams.
Electric: Flaaffy, Raikou, and Magnezone.
Psychic: Sigilyph overall is my favourite Psychic-type, then there's Gardevoir, Gallade, Chimecho, and Xatu. Anime-inspired favourites include Mewtwo, Wobbuffet, Deoxys, Lugia, and Celebi.
Ice: Glalie, Froslass, or Walrein. I really love them all pretty much equally (maybe Glalie a bit more).
Dragon: Salamence, Rayquaza, and Kyurem.
Dark: Ohh boy again. Darkrai, Scrafty, Mandibuzz, Bisharp, Sneasel, hard to choose.
