I like popularity contests as an actual measuring stick of what popular opinion is. It's fun to discuss even.

But when someone manipulates it so that a voting subset is over represented, it's just completely boring to me.

That would require Pichu to even get into the contest though.

Cases in point, the Draven/Undertale rallies.

Now that you mention it, I wonder if Pichu and Pikachu can be in the same contest. If so, maybe we can get Blastoise in even with Squirtle around.
This was not the best year for my bracket.
Congrats to BK_Sheikah00 for winning the BYIG Guru Contest!

I don't see a reason why Pichu/Pikachu or Squritle/Blastoise can't be in a contest together.
Congratulations to BKSheikah for winning the guru

It would seem unlikely, because there are only so many spots to go around.

If they did another 200+ contest, I would be fine with as many Pokémon that can get the noms, but Pichu/Pikachu and Squirtle/Blastoise in a 128 contest would be excessive.

BKSheikah is the new greatone.

On the other hand, more Pokemon means fewer LoL characters in the contest.

BKSheikah won Guru, but you know that.
