Can We Guess Your Fave Electric Pokémon Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

When you think of Pokémon, the electricity-loving Pikachu is probably the first creature who comes to mind. Of course, it's not the only Pokémon that harnesses the power of lightning.

Which electric-type Pokémon is just right for you? Keep reading to find out your perfect personality match based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Raikou

Active, on-the-go Aries needs a Pokémon that never sits still, just like them. Raikou is rarely seen in one place for long, and like you, they tend to make impulsive decisions now and deal with the consequences later. Together, the two of you will match energies to become completely unstoppable.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Togedemaru

Taurus is known for its practical, responsible nature, and those born under the sign need a Pokémon as reliable as they are. Togedemaru is known for forming a very strong bond with its owner, as well as for being playful and fun. As hard-working as Taurus is, you also love to be a little flashy, making this Pokémon your perfect match.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Plusle + Minun

We may be cheating a little, but we think that the positive and negative Plusle and Minun would be the perfect match for a multi-faceted Gemini. There's a duality to your personality, and people are never quite sure which side of you they'll get, but with Plusle and Minun, you'll always have at least one Pokémon by your side that totally gets you.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Emolga

No one feels their emotions as fully as Cancer, so you'll need a Pokémon who can sympathize with you and understand everything you're going through. You'll find that perfect companion in Emolga, who is also sensitive and willing to hear you out when you're overwhelmed. With its special flying abilities, it'll never fall far behind you.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Pikachu

Leo is the life of the party and tends to be popular and well-liked by most, and the universally beloved Pikachu will make you an irresistible match. You're both a blend of cheerful and funny, as well as occasionally arrogant and lazy, but together you'll balance each other out to achieve great things.Pikachu Sparky in Pokémon anime

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Zapdos

Virgos are perfectionists who prefer to get everything working perfectly while also avoiding the spotlight. The legendary bird Zapdos can totally relate, operating behind the scenes to work with its fellow electric Pokémon. Together, you'd finally be able to get all that work done—and maybe even get the time to focus on your social lives.Zapdos in Pokémon anime

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Pachirisu

Libras are social butterflies, so their Pokémon companions should be friendly and outgoing, just like the squirrel Pokémon Pachirisu. You value peace and harmony, and it's necessary that your Pokémon does, too. You'll never have to be alone with Pachirisu by your side.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Shinx

Scorpios can be walking contradictions, and they require an adaptable Pokémon like Shinx to keep up with them. You can be fiercely independent but sometimes rely strongly on your closest of friends. Shinx is equally mysterious but totally willing to aid you through every step of your journey.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Elekid

Sagittarius is always ready for adventure, much like the wily and mischievous Elekid. You're both optimistic in brave in the face of even the direst situations, and you laugh in the face of danger. Maybe you should take these situations a little more seriously, but for now, you're happy to have a buddy to accompany you on all your travels.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Joltik

Aquarians are the humanitarian nature-lovers of the zodiac, making them the most likely to see the adorable Joltik not as an icky spider but as a valuable companion. Joltik is tiny and helpful and can be powerfully formidable in a pinch. You're always open to new and innovative ideas, and together you'll work together flawlessly.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20):  Mareep

Pisces is the most creative sign of the zodiac, so you'll need a Pokémon who's willing to live in the fantasy world of your imagination right along with you. Mareep is the perfect companion for those who love to count sheep and drift away to a dreamland.
