Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Altaria

Taureans are known for being romantic and highly concerned with their outward appearances, making the majestic and beautiful Altaria their perfect match. Altarias are graceful birds who possess the power of a dragon, resembling peacocks if they had clouds in place of their tails. Their unparalleled charms suit Taurus values.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Talonflame

Geminis are recognized for their quick wits and ability to learn fast and adapt even faster, much like Talonflame. This fire bird is extremely speedy and agile, able to swoop in and make its move before you can even see it. As there can be two sides to Gemini, there are also two sides of Talonflame. On one hand, it can be extremely serious and dedicated. On the other, it can be a bit of a showoff, sprinkling embers everywhere when victory is near.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Xatu

Cancer is the most intuitive and sympathetic of the zodiac signs, making the mind-reading Xatu an excellent Pokémon partner. Xatu has a sixth sense for people's thoughts and feelings, and it can actually see the past and future at the same time as it sees the present. Cancers are also curious about anything otherworldly and mystical, and Xatu will give them a peek into that world.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Oricorio

Leos are outgoing, creative and the center of attention at any event, much like the fun-loving Oricorio. This unique Pokémon takes different forms depending on the nectar it has sipped, but each one is a talented dancer that prides in its ability to enchant its audience. With the help of Oricorio, Leos will always have all eyes on them.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Rufflet

Virgos tend to be extremely hardworking and dedicated to their work, much like the tough little birdy, Rufflet. It may be small, but it's committed to its mission, standing up against any threat, no matter how big and tough it may be. That's good, because it evolves later than almost any Pokémon at level 54. Together, Virgo and Rufflet will make quite the devoted team.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Delibird

Librans are known for valuing fairness and doing all they can to maintain balance in life, much like the penguin-like Delibird. Delibird's tail doubles as a sack it can fill with all kinds of goodies. It's an extremely generous Pokémon and loves to share with people and Pokémon alike, and is even famous for saving people's lives in times of need. Any Libran would be delighted to befriend a Delibird.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Articuno

Scorpios have a magnetic charm while remaining mysterious and difficult to know, much like the legendary ice bird, Articuno. Only the most intrepid adventurers ever spy Articuno in its wintery mountain habitat, but once seen, few can resist its beauty. Scorpios are similarly hard to befriend, but once you do, you'll have a friend for a lifetime.

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

Sagittarians are adventurous, impatient and lovers of the great outdoors, much like the fiery Moltres. This legendary bird is said to control the seasons, bringing spring with it as it migrates back and forth between the hemispheres. Sagittarians could trek the world the whole year 'round with Moltres as their partner.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Zapdos

Capricorns are known for their drive to succeed and their ambition, making the powerful Zapdos their ideal Pokémon partner. Zapdos controls the world's electricity, reliably showing up during thunderstorms. It works hard to maintain order, and it'd be driven to impress a demanding but fair Capricorn.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Murkrow

Aquarians tend to be curious about the world, but tough to predict, much like the raven-like Murkrow. Some people say that Murkrow is a sign of bad luck, but those who walk their own path and befriend this Pokémon know this is not true. Murkrows are also known to covet golden trinkets but will share them with trainers who dare get close to them. Both Aquarians and Murkrow are fiercely independent, but their pairing is a match made in heaven.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Lugia

Artistically inclined and compassionate Pisceans will find their flying-type match in the guardian Pokémon, Lugia. This Pokémon watches over the seas and has the ability to create powerful storms and shape the earth. Due to its strength, it tends to keep to itself, but it also has the power to calm storms. Having a Pisces imagination with the might of Lugia, very powerful things can be accomplished.
