Pokémon is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year! Since the release of Pokémon Red & Blue in 1996, this game series has become a multi-billion-dollar franchise, spawning numerous sequel games, anime series, movies, toys, and so much more.

To celebrate this momentous occasion for this iconic game series, we're launching a Starter Pokémon Bracket Tournament that will take place over several weeks. Your votes will decide which starter Pokémon is the best across six generations!

We've selected 16 participants from the Nomination Round, unfortunately Tepig, Chespin, and Piplup did not gather enough votes to make the first round.

The first round has begun and will end on February 26nd, so you have a week to select and vote for your choices! Select your favorite starters and be sure to check back next week to vote in the next round.


After an action packed final round, Charmander defeated Treecko by a large margin. Charmander has been declared the winner of the tournament! Thank you all for voting.
