Wait, question: why did Fennekin get left off when it had the same vote total as Bulbasaur and Totodile in the last thread?

That said, of these 4, Bulba all the way.

I wonder that as well especially because the same happened to Chamander and Piplup in round 3. Transparency is important in these cases because otherwise the poll looks rigged.

It's because in it's previous round, Bulbasaur and Totodile had more Votes than Fennekin, So they were chosen.

Totodile had more votes than Fennekin in Round 2 but Bulbasaur hadn't, there was a tie between Fennekin and Bulbasaur.

Yes, I know that you may have used the results of round 1 as a tie-breaker but that logic don't work in the case of Piplup, Piplup won the round 1 with Snivy and Rowlet but it was still left out from round 3.

In round 2, Mudkip, Treecko, Totodile and Snivy took the first four places but after them there was tie between Piplup, Bulbasaur, Chikorita, Fennekin, Litten, Charmander and Torchic. The results of round one is used as tie-breaker and they're following.

Piplup - 33.33%
Bulbasaur - 28.57%
Chikorita - 28.57%
Fennekin - 23.81%
Litten - 23.81%
Charmander - 19.05%
Torchic - 19.05%

There's still tie between Fennekin and Litten so they could both be in round 3:

Mudkip
Treecko
Totodile
Snivy
Piplup
Bulbasaur
Chikorita
Fennekin
Litten

ok so someone help me on who should and shouldn't be in the semifinals? it was probably an oversight and if so, it's an easy fix of just either re-doing the round over or just including the missing Pokemon in the poll.

It's impossible to say without re-doing round 3 with Mudkip, Treecko, Totodile, Snivy, Piplup, Bulbasaur, Chikorita, Fennekin and Litten because Piplup was so strong in round 1 that the results of round 3 would be different if it were in.

Mistakes happen- we're all human. If everyone wants a fair vote though, then re-doing one of the rounds would be the best idea.

Either that, or I'd personally be fine even if we did a seperate round with the four Pokemon from this poll plus Piplup (who should've been included in round 3) and Fennekin (who was tied with Bulbasaur and Totodile the last 2 rounds). Then maybe have a final three instead of final 2?

I agree. Re-do the whole thing. I recently got a Oshawott in my Omega Ruby game (yes, you can get a gen 5 starter in ORAS legally), and my heart MELTED! Also, gen 5 flashbacks. Let us bow our heads in respect for Ella the Samurott. ;-;

If I HAD to choose between the four remaining though, it'd be uhhhhh Totodile I guess. My user name in the 3DS ehop is Totodile with a bunch of numbers in front of it. Also, he's a hyper boi like me!

Why don't we just re-do the whole thing?
I agree. Re-do the whole thing.
as well as anyone else who may have had concerns...

To be clear: by "the whole thing" would you rather:

a) redo every round/this entire competition
b) do what Brendino suggested and re-do this particular round, with Piplup and Fennekin, then having a final three?
c) other.. ?

Hello everyone,

I've given this a lot of thought within the last day, and after discussing this whole hullabaloo with Brendino, we feel it best to just shut down the entire competition. This is mainly for three big reasons:

  • It was quite a bit of effort (I'm going to assume, poor Brendan had to do the numbers) to determine who was supposed to be included in the poll in the first place. That in itself is kind of annoying but not that big of an issue in the grand scheme of things -- but more importantly the OP also seems to be relatively inactive given the sheer scale and attention that a competition like this would need.

  • Speaking of activity, some of these rounds were surprisingly short. Some lasted about 48 hours, which meant that there are people that could've missed entire rounds that could've ultimately affected the final results anyways. Brendino and I are likely going to discuss what actions to take to minimize this particular outcome as much as possible, but one idea that comes to mind is PMing both of us for approval before doing tournament series polls like this just to make sure everything is fair.

  • We have another competition coming up in the works that I hope everyone finds to be fun and enjoyable, and with all due respect, we didn't want this thread and the mess that's happened to hold that up. As a result, we're likely going to postpone this competition until the new competition that's introduced is finished. We're actually going to allow this to be re-done and posted alongside the new competition, but please read the new rules that are posted and as stated, PM both myself (colours) and Brendino the answers to the questions posted. n.n

Thanks for reading, everyone! And I hope you're going to be looking forward to the competition coming up soon!
