Normal type or Fighting type? Or other?
Normal type or Fighting type? Or other?
Preferably Normal,Due to our body system,we can only do ordinary things,fighting,sometimes,Though Psychic,we've seen them....
In my opinion humans are normal-type because we don't spit fire or water through our mouth, etc. although we possess certain elemental caracteristics from different types, for example, humans can swim, while most pokemon can't, and just like Fuel Of War said, Humans can fight while a lot of pokes can't even throw a punch.
Also, since the human is a mammal, it has some caracteristics that others mammals have like Tauros, Miltank, Persian, Slaking... all of them are normal type. (Although "mammal" may not be the best word to describe them).
Anyway, I believe that ancient humans might have been fighting type, but with the evolution of the species over time things changed and humans became more and more evolved, became rational beings and, like most (if not all) rational beings (I'm refering to other pokemon that are inteligent and don't evolve like Lapras, and some legendaries), they don't develop the same way that ordinary pokemon do.

Humans aren't Pokémon, therfore I can not give them a type, as everyone is different, and humans are unique.
While humans can fight, and most Fighting types resemble humans, I'd say humans are more like Normal Pokemon.
Fighting types have over-the-top Fighting skills, like how Hitmonchan can punch faster than light and Machamp can punch opponents to the moon. Fighting Pokemon also rarely do anything other than fight.
Normal types tend not to have as ridiculously overpowered physical skills, and can do a little bit of everything, like people.
If humans were to be classified in Pokémon standards, they would probably be put into the exact same kind of catergory humans are usually placed when compared to not-human species (sentinent or otherwise).
There are individuals that excel in one aspect and are usually deficient in another, but as a whole, humanity's speciality is being unspecialized (except for perhaps intelligence and ability to use tools).
While they would be capable of learning certain fighting moves, they'd still be classified as normal.

One can also argue that Pokemon of the same type and species can also be as unique as humans, but that's besides the point.
If Humans were to be categorized like Pokemon into their respective types, then they would go where all the random Pokemon who don't fit anywhere else go: Normal.
All other typings have distinctive characteristics which make them unique to others (aside from type coverage)
Normal all the way. People like Sabrina- are they pyschic?
The only two plausible are fighting and normal. Since fighting implies physical strength as well as force, compared to like pokemon (or even real life animals), humans are not built like Clydesdale horses. This is debatable, but humans are successful because of intelligence and resourcefulness, not physical power. I noticed that fightingtype pokemon seem to be fat-free. Humans, compared to great apes, have an unbelievably high amount of body fat per size.
Fighting is impossible when Fighting types are characterised by their super-human strength and endurance.
The idea of humans living in a world alongside Pokemon has always fascinated me. I'm not sure how humans came to exist in the Pokemon World. This could be because every regular "animal" became extinct, except for humans (which continued to live on despite whatever killed off the regular animals). Or it could be because humans evolved from some early, intelligent Pokemon species (now extinct) which was some form of ape/primate.
But anyway, I don't consider humans to be Pokemon, since they don't have any kind of special powers like Water, Grass, or Fire.
(on the poll, I chose Other, because I didn't understand what this topic was about at first. ^^;)
Anyway, if humans are to be put into a catagory based on "type", yeah, they would definitely be Normal type (except for people like Sabrina and Chuck who seem to have traits of Psychic and Fighting type).
I voted normal, but now that I think about it, maybe Psychic/Fighting, we are smarter than almost all other species, (Dolphins for the world) but we are also stronger than many.
I'm going to have to go with "Normal types that could use Fighting and Psychic moves".

It's just the Internet. Calm down.
A Pokemon's psychic powers does not come from its capacity to absorb knowledge, but its ability to impose its will over another object.
As for being stronger than many species, you've got to be kidding me, unless you live in a neighbourhood full of body builders. When you look at the human species as a whole, our physical strength did not go very far, but our intellectual strength has.
A Normal type makes the perfect sense. Not only beause our human characteristics does not fit into the other categories, but also because as a species, we are able to acieve many things. There are fire-breathers, psychics, body builders, swimmers....
If you look at the average normal Pokemon, they are able to draw energy from all the other elements, resulting in Pokemon like Persian who can sue Thunderbolt.
