Aries (March 21 – April 19): Fire

Like Fire-type Pokémon, Aries is always on the move and looking for adventure. They're passionate, enthusiastic and burning for the next big thing.

While lovable, they can also be fierce and occasionally unpredictable like a raging fire.

Examples: Growlithe, Charizard and Cyndaquil

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Rock

Taurus is a fixed earth sign, making them stubborn and resistant to change, like these Rock-type Pokémon. Taurus values stability in relationships as well as school and work.

Even though Taurus rarely changes its mind, they're reliable and provide their friends with a solid foundation when they need it most.

Examples: Larvitar, Onix and Dwebble

Gemini  (May 21 – June 20): Flying

Gemini is wise like an owl but also hates to be caged in, making Flying-type Pokémon their astrological match. They go with the flow in any situation, adapting quickly to take on the challenge at hand.

Gemini can also be flighty and nervous. Don't hold them back, because they need to be free!

Examples: Pidgeot, Hoothoot and Ho-oh

Flying-type Pokémon Pidgeot, Hoothoot and Ho-oh

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Ghost

People born under the sign of Cancer are elusive and tough to know, much like Ghost-type Pokémon. But if you do manage to befriend them, you'll have a lifelong pal who will always be there to listen to your problems.

Cancer is extremely sympathetic to other people's pain and hardships. They can be moody sometimes, but they have every right to be!

Examples: Misdreavus, Gengar and Litwick

Ghost-type Pokémon Misdreavus, Gengar and Litwick

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Electric

Leo is defined by its power and loves to be in charge, and because Electric-type Pokémon are all about charge, these two were made for each other.

Leo loves to be the center of attention and make its presence known, and they're sure to bring a spark of life to any party.

Examples: Pikachu, Luxray and Mareep

Electric-type Pokémon Pikachu, Luxray and Mareep

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Steel

Hardened like steel, Virgo is reliable, practical and always hardworking. While Virgo loves to get wrapped up in minute details, others might perceive these qualities differently, viewing Virgo as a stick in the mud.

Virgo is intelligent, and while they are sometimes shy and like to keep to themselves, they can be chatterboxes around their very closest friends.

Examples: Jirachi, Klefki and Steelix

Steel-type Pokémon Jirachi, Klefki and Onix

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Grass

Libra is all about harmony, just like these Grass-type Pokémon. They're peace-lovers, and will go out of their way to make sure that others are being friendly and getting along, even when it's not the easy thing to do.

Libras will always try to restore balance, whether it's between people, in nature, or with themselves.

Examples: Bellossum, Leafeon and Bulbasaur

Leaf-type Pokémon Bellossum, Leafeon and Bulbasaur

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Water

Like these Water-type Pokémon, Scorpio can be either soft and cuddly or immensely powerful, depending on their mood. When they choose to, they can live their lives with the energy and intensity of a tidal wave.

Sometimes this power can be destructive, but if Scorpio channels it correctly, it can be put to very good use!

Examples: Milotic, Squirtle and Gyarados

Water-type Pokémon Milotic, Squirtle and Gyarados

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

Sagittarius is the most mystical and philosophical of the signs, much like their Psychic-type counterparts. They're idealists who dream very big, and sometimes this can lead them to bite off more than they can chew and over-promise on what they're truly capable of.

They're creative, curious people are who always on the lookout for the truth, and they tend to have an almost supernatural ability to work out fact from fiction.

Examples: Mew, Abra and Gardevoir

Psychic-type Pokémon Mew, Abra and Gardevoir

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Dark

Capricorn is multifaceted, with both light and dark sides attached to their personalities, making mysterious Dark-type Pokémon their perfect match. Capricorns can be extremely serious and often unforgiving, and tend to be driven more by work than by play.

They're ambitious and determined, but also set realistic goals. If you can get to know both sides of a Capricorn, you're a very lucky person!

Examples: Umbreon, Pangoro and Absol

Dark-type Pokémon Umbreon, Pangoro and Absol

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Dragon

Aquarians are movers and shakers, and they love to be making the types of decisions that make the world go round, making them similar to powerful Dragon-type Pokémon.

More than any other sign, Aquarius is suited to change. They're original, adaptable and ready for anything.

Examples: Gible, Altaria and Dragonite

Dragon-type Pokémon Gible, Altaria and Dragonite

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Fairy

Pisces is calm, caring and a little bit mystical, like Fairy-type Pokémon. They empathize well with others and avoid fights and confrontation at any cost.

Pisces is also known for their incredible intuition. It's like there's a little bit of magic involved in everything they do.

Examples: Jigglypuff, Xerneas and Togepi

Fairy-type Pokémon Jigglypuff, Xerneas and Togepi

But that's not all, because if you were born on the cusp, (during the few days when the sun moves from one sign to the next) this horoscope may be even more accurate!


Capricorn/Aquarius (Jan. 19 – Jan. 23) or Leo/Virgo (Aug. 19 – Aug. 23): Poison

People born on these cusps are mysterious and totally hard to pin down. They can be private, sometimes even to the point of seeming secretive, but they're creative and hardworking, always pushing through to get the job done.

Examples: Nidoqueen, Roselia and Arbok

Poison-type Pokémon Nidoqueen, Roselia and Arbok

Aquarius/Pisces (Feb. 19 – Feb. 23) or Libra/Scorpio (Oct. 19 – Oct. 23): Normal

These signs are totally in tune with the world around them and aren't at all afraid to embrace their feelings. They can be extremely dramatic, and love to make their opinions heard.

They say what they're feeling, and they don't care what anyone else thinks!

Examples: Teddiursa, Arceus and Skitty

Normal-type Pokémon Teddiursa, Arceus and Skitty

Pisces/Aries (March 19 – March 23) or Taurus/Gemini (May 19 – May 23): Ground

These signs are completely in tune with the earth, and are all about new beginnings and rebirth. They're powerful, energetic and always work at the top of their game!

Examples: Sandshew, Groudon and Phanpy

Ground-type Pokémon Sandshrew, Groudon and Phanbpy

Aries/Taurus (April 19 – April 23) or Scorpio/Sagittarius (Nov. 19 – Nov. 23): Fighting

People born on these cusps tend to be powerful and physically imposing, even if they can be big softies on the inside.

If they see something they don't like, they're not going to take it sitting down. If anyone's going to instigate change, it's them.

Examples: Lucario, Machop and Hawlucha

Fighting-type Pokémon Lucario, Machop and Hawlucha

(via The Pokémon Company)


Gemini/Cancer (June 19 – June 23) or Virgo/Libra (Sep. 19 – Sep. 23): Ice

These signs are beautiful and it can be difficult to get to know them. They are extremely serious about their work, and can seem a little distant, with a magical, out-of-this-world quality.

Examples: Glaceon, Articuno and Cubchoo

Ice-type Pokémon Glaceon, Articuno and Cubchoo

Cancer/Leo (July 10 – Aug. 23) or Sagittarius/Capricorn (Dec. 19 – Dec. 23): Bug

These signs are representative of movement, fluctuation and metamorphosis. They're also incredibly insightful, basically able to predict the future based on their powerful observational skills and attention to detail.
