Lillipup, the Puppy Pokémon. The long hair covering Lillipup’s face is an excellent radar, which senses conditions in the surrounding area.

Lillipup is one of the early route Pokemon, found on Route 1. So when I played White, it was one of my first catches. It’s based on a dog, and I think it’s pretty cute, though its face is quite flat.
It evolves at level 16, which is pretty early, and was quite helpful in early game. The first gym leaders Chili, Cress, and Cilan have a Lillipup each. In the anime, Lenora also had a Lillipup.
Stat-wise, it has a useful stat spread: good Attack and Speed, and decent defenses, and low Sp Attack (which it doesn’t really need). I don’t usually use Normal type Pokemon, but Lillipup was quite useful early game, since it learns Tackle (which is made better in Gen V), Bite, and Take Down.
