Running parallel or Sanrio’s yearly character poll is The Pokémon General Election 720 where trainers can cast their ballots through a variety of means for their favorite Pokémon. Voting opened on April 15 and the organizers released preliminary results a head of the closing date on May 8.

The “720” in the title means exactly what it sounds like: voters can choose from all 720 known Pokémon, from Bulbasaur to Hoopa. The current top 10 were announced on Thursday’s episode of Oha! Star.

Currently leading the pack is Greninja (Gekkōga), the final evolution of the starter Froakie from Pokémon X & Y. It’s followed by Arceus, the Pokémon first officially revealed in the 2009 film Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life. Rounding out the top three is the classic mythical Pokémon, Mew.


The full the Top 10 are:

  1. Greninja (Gekkōga)
  2. Arceus
  3. Mew
  4. Pikachu
  5. Sylveon (Nymphia)
  6. Charizard (Lizardon)
  7. Genesect
  8. Rayquaza
