The Pokemon Company teamed up with Google to celebrate Pokemon Day with a very special global poll. And now, the results are in, and people have finally voted for 2020’s Pokemon of the Year! The fans have spoken, and majority voted for the beloved Water/Dark-type Pokemon, Greninja, to hold that title!

The poll garnered a total of 6,608,215 votes. Here are the Top 30 results:

  1. Greninja
  2. Lucario
  3. Mimikyu
  4. Charizard
  5. Umbreon
  6. Sylveon
  7. Garchomp
  8. Rayquaza
  9. Gardevoir
  10. Gengar
  11. Dragapult
  12. Tyranitar
  13. Bulbasaur
  14. Toxtricity
  15. Lugia
  16. Rowlet
  17. Aegislash
  18. Chandelure
  19. Pikachu
  20. Eevee
  21. Luxray
  22. Decidueye
  23. Zoroark

  25. Corviknight
  26. Flygon
  27. Hydreigon
  28. Sceptile
  29. Blaziken
  30. Snom

While Greninja got the most votes, with Lucario and Mimikyu getting 2nd and 3rd respectively, one iconic Pokemon did not seem to even make it to the Top 10. In fact, it barely made the Top 20 and only took #19 in the global poll. Yes, we’re talking about Pikachu. The electric mouse still serves as franchise mascot, for sure, but it’s 19th place finish is quite surprising indeed.
