Surprisingly, Pikachu didn't even place in the top three, with Greninja, Arceus and Mew rounding out the top spots. These results came quite early after voting began on April 15, and the preliminary results even placed Greninja, Arceus and Mew at the lead. When ballots closed on May 9, the full results found everyone's favorite electric mouse in fourth place, with Pokémon like Charizard, Eevee, Sylveon and others filling the slots.
The final evolution of starter Froakie from Pokémon X & Y has been quite popular with fans over the last year or so, which could be attributed to the fact that Greninja has both appeared in Super Smash Bros. as a playable character, and a formidable one at that. The Greninja amiibo that was previously released likely had a hand in its popularity as well.
The complete results are as follows:
8. Zygarde (50% form shown)
10. Meloetta (Aria form shown)
