Normal type Pokémon are often a pretty neglected bunch! As more common spawns in Pokémon GO many of their designs aren’t appreciated enough, but there are so many cool Normal types. We challenged our amazing #GOHubAR family to send us their best work focused on Normal types and we just knew we wouldn’t be disappointed!
With our most amount of submissions ever, it was so tricky to filter down the choices for the article, so if you didn’t make it this time, please don’t feel disheartened, we couldn’t include everyone with so many entries! As always, the next theme and the link to submit is at the bottom of the article, so please try again for February.

‘The Loveable Happiny’ by K4Kishan, Gujarat, India.
‘Often normal type pokemons are neglected because they don’t have much of a coverage. But of the reasons to have a normal type Pokemon on your team is that they have access to wide range of movesets.

Deerling by Espeon Willow, Melbourne, Australia.
‘Peering through the bushes, I could see a cute little Deerling. I tried to be as quiet as I could so I could try to catch it with my Pokeball.
