I must agree with the OP though, Miniccino is pretty damn cute.
^The only person that seems to understand where the OP was getting at on this thread
I'm gonna do my hardest to NOT include legendaries, because I don't believe them to be worthy of Pikachu popularity. Legendaries are well known based off their rarity.
I'm gonna go with:
- Gen I: Pikachu
- Gen II: Marill or Pichu
- Gen III: Mudkip or Plusle/Minun
- Gen IV: Piplup or Buizel
- Gen V: Axew or Victini
Here are my reasons why.
Pikachu is obvious, cause that's what we were basing our cuteness/popularity factor off of.
Marill was one of the first pokemon to be shown from Gen II, this lead to it's rumored nickname "Pikablu". Later Tracy had one in the anime which heightened it's populatrity.
I just said Pichu cause I loved using Pichu in SSBM because it was cute and hurt itself when fighting :3
Mudkip... everyone lieks Mupkipz! I mean seriously, do I need an explanation for this? :P
Plusle/Minun are really cute. There's not much else left in the Gen III list to be honest.
More importantly, I feel Gen III is the biggest let down and most forgettable list of pokemon in the pokemon world. I personally didn't get the games until just before the release of LG/FR....
Piplup is very cute. Dawn's Piplup had nothing going for it bit being cute and helpless all the time.
Ash's Buizel was always trying it's best to be the strongest, no matter what... I guess by saying that, we can throw Gible into the mix too, heck, I find Gible uber-cute!
Axew is currently my favorite cute pokemon in the Gen V
I'm not a big fan of Oshawatt, and upon catching a few glimpses of Iris' Axew in the anime, definitely amazing a big hit in the new episodes.
However as far as much hype goes, Victini is ADORABLE. I don't know much more about Victini other than it was a Liberty Pass giveaway during the BW launch, but definitely a cute and popular pokemon! (Sorry for using a legendary, I didn't know what else to throw up there D:)
