Legendary Pokémon (Part One) ~ December 9 - December 16





Welcome to the Favorite Pokémon Tournament here in Pokémon Voting Polls, where we aim to determine who PokéCommunity’s favorite Pokémon is! This will be a grand undertaking that will span across a couple of months, where we will start with hundreds of Pokémon, in hopes to rank the most popular Pokémon in the eyes of you- the members of the PokéCommunity!

NOTE: the Rules/FAQ have been updated. If you haven't read them yet, feel free to give them a quick look!


Spoiler:
  • New polls are stickied every week in Pokémon Voting Polls, not long after the previous poll closes.
  • You aren’t required to pick just one Pokémon- you can vote for as many as you like to ensure your favorites get through. The Pokémon with the highest percentage of votes after the polls close will face off against the other winning Pokémon in a final poll to crown the champion!
  • Not only will the winning Pokémon from each poll move on to the final vote, but they'll be featured in Pokémon Voting Polls' forum splash during the next round of voting until its conclusion.
  • In the event of more than 2 Pokémon tied in percentage at the end of the two week vote, Brendino will have the tie-breaking vote.
  • Furthermore, members who vote and post for a majority of weeks during the tournament will receive an emblem depicting the winning Pokémon!
  • If there are any questions that you need answered, feel free to leave a comment in this thread or send a VM to Brendino to get it sorted out.


Now that you know what the tournament is all about, what are you waiting for? Polls will remain open until December 16th, so get voting!

Once again, I appreciate everyone who votes each week- you're what's making this voting tournament successful! Right now, we're on week one of two of voting for legendary Pokemon. A big thanks to the couple of you who commented on the blog, including Wobbu and LusoTrainer, who came up with ideas that I'll craft these weeks of voting around.

Basically, we're going to have two legendaries move on from the next two weeks, but they may not necessarily be from seperate polls. After the two weeks are done, the two Pokemon with the highest percentage of votes will move into the final 20, which we'll then start voting on. Since we don't know how many people will vote each week, percentage seems to work better than straight up votes. So just because a Pokemon has the most votes this week, it may not guarantee its spot in the final!

Oh, and those of you who are following the MOTY voting, the Favorite Pokemon Tournament is eligible from Best Event. I'm just sayin'... ;)

Happy voting!

Glad that I could help out :D I may or may not have forgotten about Victini when I suggested the Pokémon used for the first round...

What I like the most about legendaries is that they are all featured in movies. One of my favorite movies is Destiny Deoxys, which is why I voted for Rayquaza. I don't mind Deoxys, but Rayquaza is better :P I also like Rayquaza because of Emerald. Seeing that cinematic in Sootopolis City was really cool, especially from a GBA game.

My next vote went to Lugia. I mostly voted for it because of XD (which is my favorite spin-off) and its battle theme from HG/SS. I still have my purified XD001 from ~2006 resting in my Black 2.

Last but not least, Xerneas. XYZ have the best legendary battle theme imo and of those three, Xerneas is my favorite. I'm unfamiliar with Yveltal and I've only had Zygarde for a little over a week, so... Anyways, I like Xerneas's two forms and Geomancy is a really useful attack.

I voted for Kyogre just because Hoenn is special to me and that is exactly where that beast comes from. I unfortunately never really got to experience Kyogre until Emerald was released because I bought Ruby, but once I finally caught in in Emerald it quickly became one of my favorite Pokemon of all time!

Lugia, Ho-oh, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, and Yveltal. They all have stellar designs and stories. I'd blab about many more legendary Pokemon if this wasn't a poll. :P

ahh im a sucker for legendary pokemon q: i actually voted for 12 pokemox :x which are mewtwo, rayquaza, jirachi, dialga, giratina, darkrai, arceus, reshiram, zekrom, xerneas, yveltal and zygarde xD i like these legendaries from different aspects, some design-wise and some from competitive value. i could blab about them all but i can guarantee a tl;dr, so yea spoooileeeer :3

Spoiler:
mewtwo is a major powerhouse, sporting 154 base special attack and 130 speed, as well as acceptable 106/90/90 defenses in uber standards. when given a life orb, it comes in like a wrecking ball ;) and destroys stuff, period. its two mega evolutions are cool too :] x has 190 base attack and solid 106/100/100 defenses. y hits a little weaker than its non-mega-evolved form, but it has its speed increased, which is p nice imo :>

rayquaza is simple, with a 150 base stat for both attack and special attack, whats not to like about it? its really cool design-wise and it hits like a nuke >:D it may be p slow with 95 base speed, but give it a choice scarf and boom!

jirachiii <3 </3 lets just say its the most annoying thing you'll ever face. its really adorable design-wise, although im a little freaked out by its third eye, eep >< the combination of thunder wave + iron head coupled with serene grace? paraflinch :D so basically you just stay paralyzed and flinh to death D: and substitute calm mind jirachi deserves a mention too, being extremely annoying to face as well and really strong if you let it set up :o

dialga deserves a mention as the dragon type which can hit fairies for super effective damage while taking neutral damage from fairies :o 150 base special attack is nothing to scoff at, given its access to draco meteor, flash cannon and other coverage moves. its almost like rayquaza tbh q: and its design is asdfghjkl awesome! it was fun to fantasize dialga in real life when i was still something like 8 xD

giratina, a great uber wall/sweeper and a rather interesting design six legs, ahh :p it has access to calm mind, making it a scary sweeper in its origin forme and it has access to dragon tail, making it an effective bulky phazer in its altered forme. also, dont you just love its typing?

darkrai omgomg? darkrai was like the coolest pokemon ever to me, until i met hydreigon later on xD its signature move, dark void, is a passable sleep inducing move, which is a great asset to darkrai's movepool. set up dark void and nasty plot, woooo, you go on a sweeping spree ):D bad dreams, its signature ability, can also help to pick on weakened targets, so yea, thats a nice bonus, i guess q:

next up is the furry space goat thanks aslan o/ arceus! it has a really sleek design and its versatility is unmatched because of multitype. yes, it has to forgo a life orb to hold a plate, but 120 base stats all round is something p neat tbh :] i like its normal forme the best, why? swords dance + extreemespeed + life orb = wins, agree?

reshiram and zekrom are classed together, cause they're almost the same, its just that one attacks from the physical side and one from the special side. they are really stunning design-wise, especially reshiram. plus they have amazing signature moves, so yea thats p much it about reshiram and zekrom

xerneas and yveltal and classed together too, cause they have the same stats and yadayada xD nice ability, p neat signature moves and beautiful design-wise :)

last but not least is zygarde! ive never actually used zygarde, but all i can say is thats its p underwhelming. sure, it has a useful ability when facing xerneas and yveltal, but thats srsly it. its stats are only average except for its titanic physical bulk and it has a rather limited movepool iirc but it does get access to extreemespeed, the best attacking priority move in the metagame. the reason why i voted for it was because it has an extreemely q: cool design imo :3


so yea thats p much it, kinda tl;dr yea? congrats if you read it all, and if you didnt, well, at least you tried xD

I have a fair share of Legendary faves too in case you know, so here they are:

Xerneas, OMG OMG it's such a beauty! I always wanted a very colorful Legendary and those gem-like things on its antlers are so amazing, plus it's a Fairy-type (aka a type that I have fallen in love with lately) not to mention it's BLUE aka my fave color. This is also why I want to play X more than Y.

Other notable mentions:

Reshiram/Zekrom/Kyurem, aka my fave mascot Legends as a trio. No wonder I loved 5th Gen so much!

Meloetta and Shaymin take out my fave cuties of this bunch, I just love them especially in the anime.

Every Legendary Pokemon that hasn't been included in this week's poll will be there in part 2 of the poll, which begins next week. Since we've got exactly 50 legendaries now, the most fair way was to split them 25/25.

When I suggested to split in two, I thought you were going to post both polls at the same time, but I guess taking the percentage works all the same. Glad to help.

As for my votes: Mewtwo, Mew and Lugia.

Can't hate on Mewtwo, he's the original and best. Haha.

Also Ho-oh is the most beautiful and awestriking legendary imo. I care much less for the dragons of Sinnoh than for the bewildering flying legendaries of Johto and Kanto. Hmm, I guess you'll take the legendary trios next week then :3 I have quite some votes there! But for now, Ho-oh.

Celebi gets a vote too, because of all the tiny, magical legendaries, it is the cutest and most interesting imo. A time traveling forest spirit. Now, if any legendary should have its type changed, it should be Celebi. To Fairy! It's like the epitome of what Fairy stands for.

Rayquaza gets a vote because despite it's silly smiley face, it's the coolest dragon.

Reshiram and Zekrom were surprisingly creative and cool pokémon and I can't help but voting for both. Electric/Dragon and Fire/Dragon <3

Then, Xerneas gets a vote too because it's pretty darn beautiful. And Fairy. Which is p kewl.

Of all Pokémon listed on this poll, Mewtwo has to be one of my favorites. It's got three (yes, three) movies revolving around it, which would be Mewtwo Strikes Back, Mewtwo Returns, and Genesect and the Legend Awakened. Isn't that awesome? It also has two mega-evolutions—one of which is exclusive to Pokémon Y version, and the other's available in X. Personally, I really like Mega Mewtwo X; it's got quite an amazing design. Mewtwo Y's design is okay, but not as good as X. Other than Mewtwo, some of my other favorites would have to be Yveltal, Mew, Lugia, Reshiram, and Jirachi. Jirachi is pretty useful when it comes to battling. This Pokémon has access to Serene Grace, and with the combination of a move called "Iron Head," its opponents would rarely be able to land any hits. d:

I voted for quite a few, but my favourite is Rayquaza. Simply a tremendous Pokémon, that I loved using in Fire Red and Soul Silver. My old username was even based on Rayquaza.

Since the poll was split, my choice for this week was easy.

Lugia.

Since Lugia was introduced, I loved it. I wanted to catch one, which was why I got the Silver version. I wanted toys of it, finally getting a plush version from the Pokemon Center in NYC. I drew it all the time, and still to this day use it in my stories.

I don't know why I like Lugia. Maybe because of its origins, based on something from the Shinto religion. Maybe because of its design. Maybe because it was introduced in a movie that has one of my favorite anime characters, Tracey. Whatever it is, I just really like Lugia.

I ended up choosing three: Lugia, Jirachi, and Shaymin. I almost chose Meloetta as well, but ehhh, I'm not feeling it's quite there. Very, very close, though.

Lugia has a pretty sleek design, yet I find it loveable, all the while having this air of majesty.

Jirachi, hmm... I can't quite put my finger on why I like Jirachi so much. Its uniqueness and adorableness? Or maybe because it stars in my favorite Pokémon movie? Its design origin? Je ne sais quoi.

Shaymin, I chose mainly for its Sky Forme. Sure, the Land Forme is adorable, but it's not really my type of cute. And that's par for all the miniature legendaries anyways. Skymin, though, has all that with coolness perfectly mixed in. I like essentially everything about its design, from the expression to the mohawk to the flower scarf.

Meloetta gets an honorable mention. It has a nice visual motif, and the forme change is pretty neat. But the song... I absolutely love Meloetta's theme (Relic Song, was it?)! Great Musical too.

My votes for this round go to
Xerneas - It has a pretty nice design, and it's the "good" legendary in a sense.
Mewtwo - For being the only Pokemon who can out-match Arceus in terms of BST.
Palkia - Space!
Dialga - ...and time!

I'm starting to regret voting on Lugia. I mean, I do like it, but not as much as Mewtwo.

lolnone I don't like legendaries oops! Lugia's the coolest of the lot though since Olli's somehow convinced me that it's cool Pokémon (despite being the single most boring Pokémon to use/face in battle) so I voted for that cutiepie. Was also considering Darkrai but he just doesn't seem special any more for some reason! The only legendaries I particularly like are the golem trio so I'm looking forward to next week. :D

Voted for Mew. It's attitude is just too playful, it's adorably cute, extremely hard to find and it can learn every single TM out there. How more legendary can you get?

And with that, we come to a close on our first half of legendary Pokemon voting in the Favorite Pokemon Tournament. As stated earlier in the thread, the Pokemon that wins this poll isn't guaranteed a spot in the finale coming up in the last week of December. If none of the Pokemon in the next half of the poll (which is up right now!) can garner more than 38.78% of the votes though, Lugia and Mewtwo will be the legendary Pokemon added to the final poll!

Now what are you waiting for- go vote on the rest of the legendary types!
