What makes Charizard the most popular pokemon

#1neo1markPosted 1/13/2013 10:46:36 AM
let's be honest here ,if a huge voting on the most popular pokemon , Charizard would be 1 , although there are many fan favourites like mewtwo , rayaquaza ,dragonite , etc....

so what do you think are the reasons for charizard's popularity (not just game wise)

1) badass design
2) Flying Fire breathing dragon (yet he is not a dragon type but can learn dragon moves)
3) he broke the usual routine (first pokemon we were introduced to that disobeyed Ash and even resulted in his loss at indigo )
4) And he is Ash's strongest pokemon (some may disagree), but no matter what you say he went toe to toe with dragonite and gave him one hell of a fight. and he defeated Articuno (with type advantage but still he defeated a legendary )

he is even more popular than pikachu

what are the reasons for this ?

For some reason the Fire-types tend to be the most popular starters.
Your opinion differs from mine, therefore you're trolling.

He's overrated. A lot of Pokemon are cooler than him.

True. Typlosion, Blaziken, Infernape- only Emboar was pushed aside (however the other two weren't too great either).

It probably has to do both with it being Ash's strongest Pokémon or it being from Pokémon Red- not only a mascot but also 1/3 Pokémon everyone had on their team.

He was just the first for a lot of people.
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.
