That is a shock, to say the least with a tie in the top 50. I assume it's probably in the lower end of the top 50.

Well, I know which of those two I'm picking. 😏

good evening everyone! i am here to announce the final results.

in the exit poll, with 53.4% of the vote, rowlet narrowly got the win over primarina and takes 38th place.

the full results are here! you'll find they may surprise you.

a fun thing to do is to calculate your hipster score, which is to take the rankings of all of the mons you put in your ballot and add them together. the higher the number, the more of a hipster you are.

  • 78 ballots were cast, and 390 different pokémon scored at least one point.
  • this is actually the first time charizard has not ranked in the top 10, if not either #1 or #2 if i'm remembering correctly.
  • umbreon takes #1 for the first time.
  • ampharos remains in the top 3 for like the third year in a row or something.
  • the most represented type was grass, and the most represented region was kanto.

Adept at procrastination. If he ever seems productive, it's likely because he's ignoring something far more important.
Rotom - 66
Quilava - 54
Flygon - 2
Buizel - 160
Chesnaught - 256
Torterra - 47
Bulbasaur - 30
Tropius - 75
Falinks - 6
Sandslash - 138

Hipster score = 835

Overall, a surprising strong display of good taste this year. But mine was the only vote for both Sandslash and Chesnaught, which is a bit sad...

Shocked by how popular most of my choices were! :0

A strange Pokémon that claims to be both an artist and writer, yet almost never has any work to show for either.
Audino: 64
Espeon: 13
Articuno: 120
Grovyle: 20
Umbreon: 1
Absol: 7
Silvally: 253
Riolu: 308
Darkrai: 89
Jirachi: 133

Total Hipster Score: 1008

Not bad :0c Worth noting is that I was the sole voter for Riolu, and one of only two to vote for Silvally, Jirachi, Articuno, and Audino. Also, Audino was the only 'mon with more than one vote to score a perfect ten point average, which is pretty rad. Audino fans go big or go home, it seems :p

1. Sableye (138)
2. Luxray (48)
3. Weavile (11)
4. Swampert (40)
5. Infernape (101)
6. Kyogre (215)
7. Leafeon (46)
8. Lapras (80)
9. Octillery (332)
10. Falinks (6)

Total, if I did my math right: 1,017 which... I think that's the highest my score has ever been but I don't think I changed up my votes too much. (Sableye/Luxray/Swampert/Infernape/Kyogre are ALWAYS on there, the others may shift a bit.)

Octillery, though, is admittedly a HUGE part of why my score went so high. As to that, I don't have much to say. I just always thought Octillery was neat looking, then I used one in a water monolocke of AS and she was fantastic so that made me like it more. (Also, I did use the fav pokemon picker so a lot of choices on who is liked more than others were made impulsively. Except for falinks, who I put into #10 spot because it was the sole new Pokemon in Shield that the moment I saw, I decided to forget about following nuzlocke rules because I had to catch it.)
