The PokÃ©mon Company, a Nintendo affiliate who is in charge of marketing for PokÃ©mon, recently held a poll to determine which previous generation PokÃ©mon players want to see in PokÃ©mon: Black and White. The results have a couple surprises and it is interesting to see which PokÃ©mon received the most votes.
In contrast to previous PokÃ©mon games, Black and White do not include any previous generation PokÃ©mon until you beat the game. The PokÃ©mon that wins this poll will be given away at some point to those that own PokÃ©mon Black or White.
Check out the top five most wanted PokÃ©mon, according to the poll, as we count down towards the winner.
Mew is a legendary PokÃ©mon created as a last minute prank by a programmer working on PokÃ©mon Red and Blue. Mew quickly became a sensation when players found out how to obtain him through a glitch.
Pikachu is by far the most well known PokÃ©mon and is instantly recognizable to many. If the series had a mascot it would be Pikachu. In fact, it is a little surprising that Pikachu is not higher on the list.
Deoxys, one of the strangest PokÃ©mon Game Freak has created, is the result of an extraterrestrial virus being exposed to laser beams. It appears in four unique forms, each of which alters its appearance and abilities.
Darkrai is unique for being the only Dark-type legendary PokÃ©mon. This ghost-like PokÃ©mon specializes in putting enemies to sleep and is so powerful it is not allowed in standard battling.
Arceus is the king of all PokÃ©mon and basically their god. It is known as an Alpha PokÃ©mon and is also referred to as, “The Original One”. According to PokÃ©mon lore, it formed the universe with its one thousand arms and then went on to create several PokÃ©mon including the legendary Dialga and Palkia. Yeah, that's pretty deserving of the number one spot!
Since Arceus claimed the number one poll spot, it will be given away to PokÃ©mon Black and White players in Japan sometime in the near future. There is no word as to whether this promotion will extend to North America when Black and White are both released here.
PokÃ©mon Black and White broke sales records in Japan and got a perfect review score from Famitsu, but still doesn’t have an official release date outside of Japan. All we know is that it is coming sometime during the Spring of 2011.
