Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Hitmonchan

Reliable yet stubborn Taurus will find their match in the hard-working and strong-hearted Hitmonchan. You can always depend on a Taurus to get the job done, just like you can always count on a Hitmonchan to give it their all and never give up.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Gallade

Geminis are friendly and witty, but their minds can often be quite divided. Sometimes they can be extremely social, while other times they'd prefer to spend some quiet time alone. The dual psychic and fighting-type Pokémon Gallade can relate. In battle, it divides its time between physical and psychic offense, never settling down in any one area.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Bewear

Cancers are the softies of the zodiac, so it follows that their Pokémon bestie would be big, cuddly and sympathetic. That Pokémon is Bewear, a friendly and colossal stuffed bear who loves to hug. Cancer will love having a lovable pal to vent to—but they'll have to teach Bewear to be gentle with its bear hugs.
