Why is Pokemon popular

Pokémon: These are the 30 most popular copies of the fans in 2020

Pokémon fans around the world were encouraged to choose their favorite Pokémon for 2020 on Pokémon Day. The result is now clear. Here are the 30 most popular specimens out of hundreds of monsters of all kinds.

The world's number one fan

We don't want to talk about the bush for long - number one is Greninja, better known as Quajutsu in our part of the world. The ninja Pokémon seems to hit a nerve with fans. It's not too surprising, as it is one of the coolest representatives of its species. Quajutsu now bears the title "Pokémon of the year 2020". The Pokémon received a total of 140,559 votes, according to the official website.

The appearance of Greninja / Quajutsu in "Pokémon: Detective Pikachu" could be responsible for the great popularity. The heroes of the film are followed by three quajutsus. Only the Enton's sudden psychic awakening can prevent the ninja Pokémon from winning in the end.

The other top 10: From Lucario to Guardevoir

Quajutsu is in first place by a wide margin. The Pokémon received over 40,000 more votes than the runner-up: Lucario “only” got 102,259 votes. Also here, by the way, it is a rather cool Pokémon, while the series usually comes up with a wide variety of creatures, from absurd to cute. This is the full top 10:

  • 2nd place: Lucario with 102,259 votes

Seats 21 to 30: From Luxtra to Snomnom

For the sake of completeness, the lower ranks 21 to 30. The Pokémon Zarude cannot be found in the top 30 - no wonder, as the newcomer has only just been announced for Pokémon Sword and Shield. We are curious to see if it can hold its own in the Pokémon of the Year 2021 election next year.
