Welcome to the fifth annual installment of the Favorite Pokémon Tournament, hosted here in Pokémon General! The goal of the Favorite Pokémon Tournament (also known as the FPT), is to determine the most popular Pokémon/Pokémon family of the users here at the PokéCommunity. This will be a 10-week set of polls running between now and December, where we'll pit almost all Pokémon of different types from past and present generations against each other to determine a winner. After we know the results of each type, we'll add all of those Pokémon to a final poll, where the winner(s) will be crowned champion, and will go down into the record books as PokéCommunity's favorite Pokémon of 2017!

If you are new to the Favorite Pokémon Tournament, or would just like a refresher on the rules/process of the event, please take a look at the FAQ posted below:


Spoiler:
  • Every week, two new polls will be stickied at the top of Pokémon General. Each thread will include a different elemental type, and the list of Pokémon to vote from.
  • You aren’t required to pick just one Pokémon- you can vote for as many as you'd like to ensure your favorites get through. The Pokémon with the most votes at the end of the week will earn a spot in our grand finale, where the winners from all other polls will compete to be crowned the champion(s)!
  • In order to preserve space, we’ve grouped all of the applicable evolutions in a Pokémon family together. Some Pokémon (ex.: the Nidoran families, Alolan formes, etc.) may be exempt from this rule.
  • While regional formes have been included, please be aware that any Pokémon that changes formes (Mega Evolutions, Pokémon holding items, etc.) will only be included in polls with its original typings.
  • In the event of a tie at the end of the week, all Pokémon tied for first place will advance to the finale.
  • If there are any questions that you need answered, feel free to leave a comment in this thread or send a VM to Вrendino to get it sorted out.


NOTE: Due to the large number of Bug type Pokémon, not all eligible Pokémon are present in the poll (inclusion is based on popularity from previous years' polls). If you want to vote for an unlisted Bug type, check the "Other Pokémon" option represented by a (?), and leave a post with your vote.


Now that you know what the tournament is all about, what are you waiting for? Polls are open until the 13th of October, so get voting!




The Finalists:

None yet. :)

Volcarona, Venomoth, Shedinja/Ninjask, Ledian, Butterfree, and Beautifly for me!

Kinda surprising that those stand out as my favourites given I'm not exactly a huge Bug type person.

    Spinarak/Ariados for me.

    I absolutely hate spiders IRL but I just love them both somehow design-wise.

    These two have grown high on my favorites list. I love them, especially the shiny forms! So teeny and adorable. Beautifly, Butterfree, and Mothim rank super high too tho. <3

    I don't usually like bug types, but I happened to use Scizor recently and I quite liked it.

      Ledian, Yanma, Cutiefly (almost passed over it O_o) and Pheromosa. Lots of great bug types.

        Ninjask is my number one favorite Bug Pokemon. Fantastic supportive Pokemon, does amazing things with Speed Boost, and is my second favorite Baton Pass abuser.

        I've actually always really liked Spinarak. It's kinda cute, even if it is missing a couple of legs.

          I've always liked the purple butterfly, and it was once my favourite Pokémon. I'm sure my fondness for Butterfree is evident by my current banner, haha.

          Shoutout to Volcarona, Vivillion, and Cutiefly!

            Heracross, it's useful in competitive play.

                I mostly voted for the cute ones, but my personal fave is still Vivillon.

                  Scyther, Heracross and Sewaddle line. Bug isn't my favorite but I find these designs great and I love their competitive uses

                  I'm surprised Vivillon isnt as popular. I remember it being more popular the last time this was done.

                  Larvesta family, Butterfree family and Heracross! Probably my most favourite of the bunch. :3

                  Noticing it's close between Scizor and Volcarona, but I know Scizor's always been the winner of this type for years now so imagine if Volcarona finally beat it.

                  Thank you to everyone for voting in our first week back here in the FPT!

                  Though it was a close race throughout the week, in the end Scyther and Scizor remained on top, earning themselves a trip to the finale once again this year! Not far behind them were Larvesta and Volcarona, with Heracross coming a few votes behind in third.

                  The next round of polls will be up later today, so check back soon! And if you haven’t seen the Rock type poll results, be sure to check those out, too!
