There exist a number of Pokémon that resemble humans in one way or another. There's an entire egg group dedicated to them, after all. These creatures stand on two feet, have human traits and abilities, and can even appear to be more human than Pokémon.
The similarities of human-like Pokémon to Homo sapiens can give them an eerie and potentially unsettling air, and although it's not always the case, many of them can communicate with humans, which is perhaps why they have featured in the anime and movies, with one being a major antagonist in the first ever Pokémon movie.

When Toxel evolves into Toxtricity, it goes from being a quadrupedal lizard-like Pokémon to a bipedal human-like one. It can evolve into two different forms of Toxtricity, the Low Key Form and the Amped Form. Both forms are human-like but have different colored spikes, the Low Key Form's being blue and the Amped Form's being Yellow. Toxtricity's Gigantamax form returns to being lizard-like and quadrupedal, and can create a mass of electricity shaped like a guitar.

9 Cinderace Is A Soccer Superstar

The Striker Pokémon Cinderace is modeled after a soccer-playing rabbit. It is the final form of the Gen 8 Starter Scorbunny. Cinderace has rabbit feet, ears, and a rabbit face and tail, but it stands on two feet and moves like a human. Cinderace's Gigantamax form has much longer ears and rides on an enormous Pyro Ball, which is also a move that only Cinderace can use, as is the G-Max move G-Max Fireball.

8 Mr. Mime Looks Just Like A Clown

Despite its rather odd shape, Mr. Mime looks more like a human being than it does a Pokémon. It has a regional form in Galarian Mr. Mime, which has blue clothing as opposed to pink, and gets a blue nose.
Although Mr. Mime has been around since Gen 1, the other members in its evolution family were introduced later, with Mime Jr. being introduced in Gen 4 and its Galarian variants coming in Gen 8. The variants include Mr. Rime, the evolution of Galarian Mr. Mime, which looks like an elderly man with a walking stick.

7 Sawk And Throh Are Martial Arts Experts

Sawk and Throh look similar, only Sawk is blue and skinnier than the stocky Throh, which is red. They each represent different martial art disciplines, Sawk being a karate specialist and Throh being a judo expert. Both Pokémon have three digits and wear the clothing of their respective disciplines, with Sawk wearing a karate gi and Throh a judogi. Throh's red, rocky skin is reminiscent of the Thing from Fantastic Four.

6 Alakazam Is An Intelligent Human-Like Pokémon

Despite its pointy ears and only having three fingers and three clawed toes, the Psi Pokémon looks very much like a human. Its evolutionary predecessors Abra and Kadabra look more animal-like, thanks to their prominent tails, which Alakazam doesn't have. Mega Alakazam becomes more wise-looking with its white beard, the fact that it levitates instead of standing, and its purple clothing with long, wizard-like sleeves. Alakazam is extremely intelligent, its brain cells multiplying continually until it dies.

5 Blaziken Forges A Human Form Out Of Its Fowl Past

Blaziken is the final form of the Gen 3 starter Pokémon Torchic, and it's the only one in its evolution family to look human-like. Torchic looks just like a chick, while Combusken, the mid-stage form, looks very much like a chicken. Despite its beak and claws, Blaziken's long hair and body shape give it a human appearance. Mega Blaziken looks much the same, although it has long flames coming out of its wrists.

4 Hitmonchan Is A Boxer Who Bloodies Noses Despite Not Having One Itself

The Punching Pokémon lacks a nose, but apart from that, it looks very much like a human. It wears boxing gloves, shoes, a tunic, and a kilt. The strength and accuracy of its punches would give even the best human boxers a run for their money. Hitmonchan is one of three Pokémon Tyrogue can evolve into, the other two being Hitmonlee, which is bipedal but without a head or neck, and Hitmontop, which doesn't look particularly human.

3 Mewtwo Was Created In A Lab And Can Communicate With Humans Telepathically

Mewtwo is like a cross between human and cat. As an embryo born from Mew, it was tampered with by scientists to alter its DNA, which made Mewtwo so upset that it destroyed the lab in which it was created.
Mewtwo is able to communicate with humans telepathically, even though it dislikes them. The Genetic Pokémon has two Mega evolutions, Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y, the X version the more human-like of the two.

2 Machoke Is A Bodybuilder With A Reptilian Head

The mid-stage evolution in the Machop family, Machoke looks like a bodybuilder. What looks like underwear is really a marking on its skin, above which it wears a power-save belt that keeps its immense power in check. The Superpower Pokémon has five fingers and toes and its body has the same proportions as a human's, but its head bears more resemblance to a reptile's. It evolves into Machamp with four arms, making it less human-like than Machoke.

1 Gardevoir Is Graceful With Her Gown And Green Hair

Gardevoir is a slender and elegant-looking Pokémon that wears a white gown, and is seemingly based on a ballet dancer. The Psychic/Fairy-Type is the final form of Ralts, which doesn't look particularly human-like, and evolves from Kirlia, which wears a tutu. It has large red eyes and green hair, but no visible nose. The Embrace Pokémon's Mega evolution has shorter hair and wears what looks to be a bridal gown.
