This week we take a look at each of the 16 personality types as Pokémon…original Pokémon! If you’re a nineties kid then you probably played the original Pokémon red or blue on your Gameboy. Technology and Pokémon have come a long way since then, but we prefer to keep it classic. So, are you curious and positive like Pikachu, an ENFP? Or more quiet and sporty like Wartortle, an ISTP? Take a look below to see which original Pokémon you are based on your Myers & Briggs personality type. If you don’t know your personality type, you can take our free 5-minute personality test.

INFP: Jigglypuff

Jigglypuff is an INFP with its big eyes and the way it sings a soothing lullaby as its method of attack.

ENFP: Pikachu

Pikachu is an ENFP. Curiosity and positivity are typical traits of an ENFP.


Mew is the rarest Pokemon that has a mystical air, so what better personality type than INFJ?

ENFJ: Hypno

ENFJs are able to captivate people in an almost hypnotic way like Hypno has the ability to do.

INTP: Magnemite

Magnemite is innovative and original, just like an INTP. It uses antigravity to stay suspended and floats while emitting powerful electromagnetic waves.

ENTP: Haunter

Haunter is an ENTP. You can tell by its cheeky grin that its up to not good.

INTJ: Mewtwo

Mewtwo has psychic abilities and is quietly powerful, which fits well with it being an INTJ.

ENTJ: Charizard

Charizard is fiery, powerful and love new challenges, just like an ENTJ.

ISFJ: Dragonair

Dragonair is an ISFJ. It has a gentle aura and brings good luck to people.

ESFJ: Eevee

Eevee can evolve into different Pokemon, which is analagous to ESFJs being social chameleons.

ISTJ: Kakuna

Kakuna is an ISTJ. It doesn’t like being in the spotlight and there’s more to Kakuna than meets the eye.

ESTJ: Scyther

Scyther is driven, decisive and a highly adept hunter. These characteristics make ESTJ the most likely personality type.

ISFP: Butterfree

Butterfree loves pretty flowers and spending time in nature, which fits well with it being an ISFP.

ESFP: Jynx

Jynx moves her body rhythmically as she walks, so what better personality type for her than an ESFP, the ultimate dancing queen.

ISTP: Wartortle

Wartortle is an ISTP. He is quiet and highly sporty. Wartortle moves his ears to maintain balance when swimming.

ESTP: Machoke

The belt around Machoke’s waist is to control his energy. He is an most likely an ESTP, one of the most energetic personality types.
