The Human-Like Egg Group (Japanese: 人型グループ Human-Shaped Group), known prior to Pokémon Diamond and Pearl as the Humanshape Egg Group due to the Pokémon in the egg group resembling a human like form, is one of the fifteen Egg Groups. As of Generation VIII, 66 Pokémon belong to this group.
Pokémon in this Egg Group, as the name implies, have similar characteristics to humans. They are fully bipedal, standing and walking on two legs. They also possess arms with which they could manipulate objects or deliver blows. The majority of members of this Egg Group are either of the Psychic or Fighting-type.
Several families that belong to this Egg Group have received a pre-evolution in the form of a Baby Pokémon, either in a later generation or, in the case of Lucario and Toxtricity, at the same time. There are also several families that are predominantly male. Most Pokémon within this Egg Group are exclusive to it.
