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 variants, etc.) may be exempt from this rule.
  • While regional variants 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 number of existing Water type Pokémon, not all eligible Pokémon are present in the poll (inclusion is based on popularity from previous polls). If you want to vote for an unlisted Water 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 21st of December, so get voting!




The Finalists:

Just a friendly reminder to everyone on this poll (moreso than any other): with the inclusion of Alola, there are now over 130 different Water type Pokemon- way too many for this poll. I'm sure I missed some, but feel free to vote for any of those by using the Other Pokemon option, and noting it with your post. If enough people start asking for it, I'll see if I can add it to the poll.

Happy voting!

      My absolute favourite water type. I soloed Omega Ruby with it and it did work. Plus, it's just really adorable.

      Frillish and Jellicent

      They're both interesting Pokémon, and my go-to water type in Unova.

      Primarina

      I find Incineroar and Decidueye cool, but I like Primarina so much more, since it is so beautiful, and has an amazing type.

        Surprisingly, for what I consider my favourite type, I actually don't have any specific favourites from this type. I selected the Gen 3, 4, and 5 starters, and Marill/Azumarill because it was my first shiny.

            The lack of Gorebyss displeases me...
            It's fine, I made sure to put in a vote for the question mark because my number one pick would obviously be for Gorebyss and the rest of the Clamperl family.

            Voted for:
            -Swampert line; my first starter Pokemon in a game ever and it's served me well both in-game and competitive
            -Piplup, Oshawott, Froakie, and Popplio lines; I have a soft spot for Water starters simply because of Swampert and since then, it's my tradition to go with a Water starter each time a new generation comes out.

            Other vote:
            -Araquanid; it's got a great ability despite middling offenses and it's an interesting take on the real world diving bell spider as a water-breathing arachnid needing a water bubble to survive on land.

              Amongst all the mons on the list I decided tp vote for pretty much every Water starter except for the lines for Blastoise and Samurott (Even though I like both of them)

              Take a wild guess who got my vote ;)

              I did not just for Milotic though, she and Gyarados I like equally. The raging water serpent is like her dark twin. I see Milotic as Yin and Gyarados as Yang.

              With the final two polls now closed, that wraps up the preliminary voting here in the FPT. In a continued show of dominance, the Eevee family is sending another member to the finale, with Vaporeon picking up the victory!

              The finale will be starting tomorrow, so make sure you come back then to vote for your favorites!
