Who's that Pokémon?

The people of Japan have spoken. When it comes to their favorite Pokémon, Greninja has won the popularity contest. Over half a million otaku voted for this relatively new character.

Unofficial U.S. fan favorite Pikachu came in fourth place. Though stateside fans were ineligible from casting their votes, many are nonetheless pretty damn mad about the winning pocket monster. They also have no idea who the hell Greninja is.
Distraught fans can hopefully take comfort in the fact that the adorable Iwanko pup and the ethereal Nekkoala koala Pokémon have been confirmed as not only real, but real cute.
As for the debate still raging in America over who's the true best Pokémon? I'm gonna go ahead and let the president have the last word on this.
