Pokemon First Anime Debuts by Type and Generation

Can you name the first Pokemon of each type to debut in each Generation? (COUNTING SPECIALS AND MOVIES)

If more than one Pokemon (of the same type and generation) debuted in the same episode or movie, they're both correct. Quiz goes up to the latest episode aired in Japan. *Some have yet to air in the US. Also, no Rock, Poison, Steel, or Ice types from Gen VI have appeared yet. Mega-evolutions aren't counted for Generation VI on this quiz.
