Pikachu Isn’t the Top Pokemon Anymore According to Japanese Survey
It looks like Pikachu isn’t Japan’s favorite Pokemon anymore according to a recent survey!
Japan’s The Pokémon General Election 720 recently ended and the poll got a new winner for the top spot as the fan-favorite Pokemon. The distinction goes to Pokemon X and Pokemon Y starter, Greninja or Gekkoga in the Japanese games.
If you’re unfamiliar with the character or have never played Pokemon X / Y, then the only thing you really need to know is that Greninja is the final form of Froakie, the cute water-type frog starter Pokemon.
Here’s the Top 20 Pokemons that Japan currently loves according to the Pokemon General Elections:
The poll opened April, 2016 and ended May 9.
Going back to Greninja’s popularity, we’ve got this feeling that Pokken Tournament had a hand in the ousting of the yellow electric cutie. But we’re yet to confirm the numbers. Also, sorry, Pokken Tournament is still an exclusive for the Wii U.
