According to Pokemon.com's Pokedex, There are 809 different Pokémon across 8 different generations. So obviously each fan has their own favourite, right? Do you know which one is yours?
Google recently partnered with Pokémon to hold an international vote that will determine the world's favourite Pokemon. By google searching 'Pokemon Vote' you too can have your say!
A previous poll held on Reddit tried to determine which Pokémon was the most favourite, however, now being partnered with google it seems as though the vote could be more accurate with a lot more participants.
In the poll on Reddit, the unsurprising victor was from the First Generation of Pokémon. Debatably one of the most nostalgic characters from the Pokémon universe, Charizard was named the favourite amongst Reddit users. This hard-headed fire-flying type dragon Pokémon was easily the favourite.
Which Pokémon do you think will win this year? Will it be more the nostalgic characters popular among those of us who started watching Pokémon during Indigo league or ones from the newer generations?
