UPDATE (Feb 6, 2020): Ever since the Pokémon franchise began in 1996, there has always been much discussion and debate amongst fans about the best one, with the likes of Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charizard, and even Eevee frequently topping those lists. Now, in celebration of Pokémon Day 2020, the Pokémon Company has teamed up with Google to give fans the opportunity to officially pick their favorite Pokémon of the Year.
To cast your vote and support, simply head over to Google and enter “Pokémon vote” into the search bar. You’ll then be given a massive list to choose from, all separated into different categories. If you’re signed in with your Google account, you can cast one vote per day per category, and all forms of each species will still count as the same Pokémon. Google will also store your votes until the end of the poll, and warns that votes casted cannot be deleted. It could be a tough decision though, as the poll offers every single evolution ever released in the franchise, amounting to more than 1,000 to choose from.
For fans out there who wish to vote for their favorite Pokémon of the Year, head over to Google’s page now. Voting will end February 14.
