In a General Election of all 720 Pokémon, hosted in Japan in May and early June 2016, Greninja won 36,235 votes from the 562,386 Trainers who were polled. The bipedal, frog-like critter saw off competition from Arceus, Mew, Pikachu and Sylveon who took places 2–5 respectively.
The least popular Pokémon was Simisear, who finished 720th in the election. "Poor Simisear," commented a downbeat Kotaku.
