The October Patreon results are in.
Soooo, wow...what a slaughter! I wasn't expecting that. While I did suspect that Ninetales would win, I didn't expect the margins to be so massive. In order to provide competitive value for voters, it's in my best interest to pick candidates that I feel can compete well with one another.
There's two problems with this poll. One of that I was competing a 1st gen pokemon against a gen 3 and 5, and I suspect there's much more 1st gen love in this audience (sounds a good public poll topic, eh?). Second, the candidates were limited by POW's old animation class model, which required that the pokemon be of about the same size and shape.
Moving forward, any polls for interactive pokemon will not be required to be the same size and shape. Also, I'll try to keep the span of generations to a minimum between candidates to curb nostalgia bias.
If I have some spare time, perhaps the 2nd place winner here will earn a showcase animation ;)
