While waiting for results: who do you think will be top three? (Should have asked earlier. Oh well.)

1. Mew. Generation 1 and a cute design.
2. Sylveon. Received the most votes in the eeveelution poll (barely).
3. Corviknight. The longshot. May not even make top ten. Might have put Lucario here, if not for seeing it in 49th. Would have been way off.

Guesses a lot of eeveelutions high up. Might weigh each other down, though. Understands not wanting too many eeveelutions in a top 25 list. Ran neck-and-neck in the poll.

Would not be surprised to see a starter (such as Charizard, Scorbunny, Greninja, and Blastoise) for third place. Almost said Luxray (as another dark horse cat quite possibly not even in the top ten).

Do not let Azumarill's cute and happy appearance deceive you!

This Grass-type starter from Kanto is here and is beloved for its bulk and survivability with both a good typing and access to Leech Seed and because of this, the Seed Pokemon is great to use in both Kanto games and ROM hacks. It has reminded of one voter of the Turtwig line too.

This Heel Pokemon, beloved by kids, is also beloved by voters thanks to its bulk (Intimidate helps here too), strength, and its ability to learn Darkest Lariat! This Pokemon is also the evolved form of Torracat and is best of both worlds as well as being a Dark-type starter that's preferred over Greninja for one voter.

One look at the Big Jaw Pokemon and you can tell it oozes with happiness! Not only that but it's also loved for its simple and little design as well as being remembered as a voter's first starter Pokemon.


33rd
Typhlosion
Highest ranking
Makaan

This Volcano Pokemon is remembered for being a nostalgic starter as one voter preferred Gold over Yellow and another prefers it over Charizard. This Pokemon has been incredible for their journeys, especially when it learns Thunderpunch in Crystal for some coverage.

This dapper looking Grass Quill Pokemon is loved for being a beautiful ball of grass, has a lovely design, and as the most classiest and cutest starter for one voter.

Providing many taxi services throughout all of Galar is the Raven Pokemon Corviknight! Its majestic appearance screams toughness and fierceness thanks to its smooth lines as well as a simple yet striking colour pallet. It certainly helps that it held its weight in one voter's Sword team thanks to its bulk and strength.



A lot of starter Pokemon this round!

Salazzle
Highest ranking
Fafrir
Number of votes
3
This Toxic Lizard Pokemon lands into the 30th spot with its simple, cool, and a gorgeous designed lizard. Salazzle is also beloved for a unique Poison/Fire-type and loved at first sight for some voters, even made one voter appreciate Poison-types more! Its exclusive ability Corrosive is also helpful as it is too toxic even for the most resistant of types. Furthermore as Salazzle is Female only, it has angered many who spent quite some time getting a female Salandit.


29th
Zoroark
Highest ranking
ninestarryskies
Number of votes
3
No tricks here! But it is no joke that this Illusion Fox Pokemon is beloved for its appealing, crafty design inspired by Kabuki theater with its make up and long flowing hair which gives it an illusion of its tail. It also stands out as a Dark-type with a novel and excellent gimmick in Illusion, which allows it to pretend to be whatever is in the last spot. It was also the ace of one voter's Ultra Sun team!


28th
Mew
Highest ranking
ninestarryskies
Number of votes
4
It's no surprise to see the New Species Pokemon arrive on this list; it's cute, it's huggable, it's powerful, and it's also mysterious and rare. One voter was fortunate enough to pull a Southern Islands Mew in a pack and was surprised and because of this it's one of their favourite cards!


27th
Whimsicott

This Windveiled Pokemon is loved for its design, a round fluff, sweet smile, and its cuteness.


26th
Gardevoir

With its graceful appearance, it's easy to see why voters love the Embrace Pokemon. Gardevoir is not only the prettiest design according to one voter but it is also loved by its popularity, appealing design, and was featured on a favourite TCG card for one voter.

Crossed another off the predictions list. Leaves just Sylveon. Notices no eeveelutions yet.

Wonders if any middle evolutions will make it.

Expected more 4-vote Pokemon. Must have some high rankings on the 3-vote Pokemon (or multiple low ones on the 4-votes).

In the depths of Relic Castle hosts the Sun Pokemon, Volcarona! This majestic moth is beloved for its reference to ancient Egypt, befitting for a Pokemon powerful enough to hold on its own in competitive play thanks to its typing, ability to learn Quiver Dance, and its speed and power. It is well love for its design as its sun god concept is well executed.


24th
Heracross
Highest ranking
Roni
Number of votes
3
Hera-Hera-Heracross! There are reasons why this Single Horn Pokemon is so loved; it's cool, it has a nice horn, it's a big bug boss, the derp eyes are endearing, and Bug/Fighting is a rare typing. One voter does wish it had a better shiny though.


23rd
Crobat
Highest ranking
Roni
Number of votes
3
A Pokemon mostly unloved for its high encounter rates transforms into the Bat Pokemon Crobat thanks to the power of friendship. This Pokemon eventually became the favourite Pokemon of one voter because of its awesomeness and it was a constant team member for many.


22nd
Aegislash
Highest ranking
Makaan
Number of votes

The original Sword and Shield Pokemon is here and it well loved for being a Steel/Ghost-type, its design reflecting its mechanics in Stance Change, and it always gets usage on ROM hacks when given a chance. Gotta love the Royal Sword Pokemon!

Chandelure
Highest ranking
Roni
Number of votes

Spooooooky! There are numerous reasons why the Luring Pokemon is so loved, namely its concept of an edgy chandelier that is able to burn souls that is also gorgeous, which is also loved at fight sight for one voter. Additionally, Ghost/Fire is a great and cool typing backed up by its strength and diverse movepool; it certainly helps it being the best Pokemon in Pokemon Conquest, which one voter is addicted to.

Combining both a fish and a dragon transforms into the Fossil Pokemon Dracovish! This is beloved for its befitting monstrous strength thanks to Strong Jaw plus Fishious Rend, which can deal a hefty chuck to even those resisting it. This fusion also has a surprisingly cute and edgy dark dragon design.


19th
Wartortle
Highest ranking
Icycatelf
Number of votes
3
This Turtle Pokemon is loved for its fantastic aesthetic with its coolness and fierceness and voters have held it as their favourite middle stage starter thanks to its nostalgia, its official artwork being always loved, and there is a story with a voter obtaining a bootleg sticker of it from a gas station. Also, one voter likes turtles.


18th
Scizor
Highest ranking
Pyrax
Number of votes
5
As long as Scyther holds the Metal Coat it can transform into the Pincer Pokemon. It is beloved for being unironically cool, a bug in steel armor, its popularity, its colour combination of red and black, and its competitive viability with Technician and Bullet Punch.


17th
Gengar
Highest ranking
FeraligatrMaster
Number of votes

>:D
With an awesome design of being a puffy, menacingly but not as menacing looking ghost, it's easy to see why voters love the Shadow Pokemon. It certainly helps it can be great in competitive play thanks to its rare typing, its speed, its power, and a diverse movepool. Also, it has a fantastic mega, especially its shiny form. Gengar is peak coolness!


16th
Staraptor
Highest ranking
mertis
Number of votes

The cornerstone of many DPPt teams is the Predator Pokemon Staraptor! Catching it early game as well as gaining powerful moves later such as Close Combat and Brave Bird certainly helps to cements its spot.

I'm looking forward to using Staraptor again in one of the upcoming Sinnoh games.

Considers that a weak showing for Gengar. Took 2nd in a Reddit (Generation 1-7) popularity poll and 10th in an official 2020 poll. Was not the only deviation, of course. (See: Lucario. 9th in the Reddit poll and 2nd in the official one.)

Congratulates Wartortle on the upset. (Also voted for them.) Shows how much of a difference the voting system and community makes.

Big names still absent with fifteen spots remaining: Charizard, Arcanine, Greninja, Mimikyu, Sylveon, Umbreon, Eevee, and Garchomp. Will lay down seven more guesses: Ninetales, Blastoise, Ampharos, Rayquaza, Dragapult, Lugia, and Espeon.

Adding another sheep to the list is the Wool Pokemon Mareep! It is loved for being fluffy, a part of Ampharos' evolution line, and useful in games as it's a staple for GSC!

The stage is set and the spotlight is on the Soloist Pokemon Primarina! This majestic seal is useful in playthroughs, considered the best Alolan starter, loved as a queen, and is a trans icon. Keep voice training, kids.

With the power of beauty, Feebas transforms into this Tender Pokemon. This Pokemon has been remembered for being a strong opponent for one voter in their Colosseum playthrough and after research it became a beloved team member for the Hoenn games. One voter lives near the sea and this beautiful looking oarfish gives them a feeling of a sea-paradise.


12th

This spunky lizard chicken boy, aka the Hoodlum Pokemon, is beloved for its unique and neat concept of a street punk lizard with its baggy pants and hood as its dead, shed skin (both are functional too), a crest like the basilisk lizard which it dons as a Mohawk, and its bright colour palette which reflects the rebellious punk aesthetic as well as its territorial nature. Two concepts have been seamlessly combined to turn it into a fun design that's neither too busy nor too simple. It can also hold on its own in battle too with 3 great abilities in Shed Skin, Moxie, and Intimidate, its Dark/Fighting-type, a colourful movepool which can fit many roles, and its bulk; one voter imagines it breakdancing and fighting in the style of capoeira, a Brazilian martial art. Dark, Dragon, and Fighting are also the favourite types of one voter so having a Pokemon that's two of those types as well as being in the Dragon egg group is awesome.


11th
Raichu
Highest ranking
FeraligatrMaster
Number of votes

From the shadows of the franchise's mascot emerges its evolved form, the Mouse Pokemon Raichu! This Pokemon is loved for being a squeaky cutie, its coolness, its speed with access to Nasty Plot, and is always a good and beloved member for one voter's teams.

The most popular Pokemon from a while ago has made its spot in the 10th position; the Ninja Pokemon is beloved for its usefulness in battle thanks to its high speed, power, and diverse movepool. Additionally it has an awesome design with a fun take of a frog that uses its own tongue as a ninja scarf, which is nice to see as a popular design. This Pokemon is playable in Smash, one user likes frog designs, and is the favourite Gen 6 starter for some voters.

While this Pokemon is known as the Mysterious Pokemon, there are no mysteries to why the voters love it. This Pokemon was the original favourite of one voter; the abstract concept with the sharp lines and gem and a wonderful shade of purple make this Pokemon an interesting design. In battle, it is great for its speed, power, and a diverse movepool, sort of like a Water-type Crobat for one voter.


8th
Hydreigon

This three headed dragon is loved at first sight for one voter and the favourite pseudo legend of another and it's easy to see why. This Brutal Pokemon has a creative approach to the traditional hydra, based off the Odyssey, with its two other hands acting as sock puppets with an excellent execution of another hydra, Yamata no Orochi, with its wings resembling its other heads while rocking an edgy look with its gorgeous colour palette. Its fierce appearance also means it's powerful in battle as well as carry a diverse movepool; was used in one voter's runs of Volt White and Yang White 2. It is definitely worth all the trouble of getting this Pokemon since it evolves at a high level of 64.


7th
Tyranitar
Highest ranking

Towering over foes with its Kaiju aesthetic is the Armor Pokemon. Its dragon-like appearance gives it an edgy look as well as being strong and bulky, great to use in ROM Hacks.

This Intimidation Pokemon is one cool ca- err croc with shades to prove it. It's also a perfect edgelord for one voter with its colour scheme of black and red as well as plow through teams with its natural offense and Moxie, which helped one voter's White playthrough. Also, its snout, befitting of the gharial, looks nice.

This Light Pokemon has not only made lighthouses brighter but has shined into the hearts of many. A super cute Pokemon with an evolution line that feels like natural progression, namely how it slowly loses its wool as it gains more electricity, and it is loved for how every form feels distinct. While slow, it sure packs a punch as well as its Mega form amplifying its power. Loved since gen 2, this Pokemon was also the MVP of one voter's Gold team and therefore remembered.

Choosing the Water-type starter for the Johto region eventually transforms into the Big Jaw Pokemon beloved for its awesome crocodilian design as well as being underrated. This Pokemon can also be useful in battle and in game thanks to a combination of Sheer Force, decent bulk, strength, and ability to learn Dragon Dance. That's one tough gator!


3rd
Swampert

Voters love the Mud Fish Pokemon for nostalgia from Emerald being the early games for some and was also the first starter choice. A solid choice too because it is powerful with its strength, great typing, and its bulk, which has also spammed Mud Shot its way through playthroughs for one. Its great design certainly helps as well!


2nd
Infernape
Highest ranking
Makaan
Number of votes
4
As a valuable member of many Sinnoh teams, namely Platinum and Flawless Platinum, this Flame Pokemon will be remembered for its strength, speed, and its cool design as it's based off mythology and not looking overly humanoid compared to the older Fire/Fighting type Blaziken. Its appearance in the anime has helped one voter love it as well.


1st
Garchomp
Highest ranking
Pyrax
Number of votes
5
PokeCommunity's overall favourite Pokemon is the Mach Pokemon Garchomp! This Pokemon will be remembered as valuable member of one voter's Platinum team as well as one voter catching a Gible after encountering Cynthia's Garchomp for the first time, which made it as their favourite pseudo-legendary. This Pokemon is well known for its power in battle with its strength, speed, bulk, good typing, and diverse movepool with the bonus a fierce, cool design of combining a shark, airplane, and dragon.




And what's a wrap! This was definitely an ambitious event and I thank you all for dedicating your time to send me in lists to make this event all the possible! I also enjoyed reading all your descriptions as well as see what the community's personal tastes are. Additionally, I thank Dakota for helping me out with the CSS as it was all done beautifully! <3 The next favourite Pokemon event will be smaller so I hope you will look forward to it as well!
Once again, thank you! <3

Misjudged this community's favorites by a longshot. No eeveelutions? Venusaur and Wartortle in the top 50, but not Charizard and Blastoise? Showed a lot of love to starter lines in general too. Consisted of 12/50 places (Sceptile, Venusaur, Incineroar, Tototile, Typhlosion, Rowlet, Wartortle, Primarina, Greninja, Feraligatr, Swampert, and Infernape).

Thanks for running the event.

Seeing Salazzle on the list is quite surprising, when I think of that pokemon in my time playing sun, all I remember is pure frustration..

the difficulty in getting one that can evolve into it, its near useless signature move, or as it the ability?

And then just how often the dang thing died.


I love Golisopod though.


*whistle* that top 5 is nice, and would make an epic team as well.
