Post The Most Popular Pokemon in Japan



According to the Nintendo World Report, Arceus is the most popular pokemon in Japan in a poll conducted by The Pokemon Company.
The winning Pokemon was Arceus, a legendary Pokemon first introduced in Diamond and Pearl. Following it was Darkrai, also from the fourth installment of the Pokemon franchise. In third place was Deoxys, the shape shifting legendary Pokemon introduced in Ruby and Pearl.

Series mascot Pikachu landed in fourth place, while Meowth closed the top five.

Apparently Japan and I share a good taste in favorite pokémon. ^^

Really? I don't like arceus much. And I find it weird people love Legendaries so much. o:

I think you mean Ruby and Sapphire.

I don't find it so weird that most of their favorites are legendaries. It's because they're super powerful. I've been a fan for twelve years. I know the feeling. My favorites used to be legendaries. But it became Lapras after a little while because it was just plain awesome. Of course, there are some legendaries in my top five, but that's only because of what they're associated with; Darkrai, for example, is a second-favorite of mine, and it's because of nightmares. Mew also shares top two for me, but it's because its grand-mother-of-all role, and of course, because it's cute and its aura-using capabilities.

What I don't necessarily get is the Pikachu obsession. It's been around for fifteen years, people! D:<

I sort of get the legendary love--I myself have a love of Entei and Mew, but otherwise I'm a massive supporter of Gardevoir and Raichu, but hate Pikachu. :) Sorry, fans.

Yeah, I guess that make sense. I've just never tend to like a pokemon because of its power/strength. x) But, mind you, suicune are one of my all-time favourite pokemon. But even if they weren't Legendaries I'd still love them.

I dunno. I've always liked pikachu because they sort of represent the whole pokemon fandom for me. Hence them being the mascots, but yeah. I have nothing against them. x)
