Pokémon General Election's Official Website Opens
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Pokémon General Election 720, a name that harkens to AKB48's own annual popularity contest, opened its official website on Thursday, ahead of upcoming poll. The "720" in the title means exactly what it sounds like: voters can choose from all 720 known Pokémon, from Bulbasaur to Hoopa. The upcoming Pokémon the Movie XY & Z: Volcanion to Karakuri no Magearna featured monsters Volcanion (#721) and Magearna aren't included.
Voting opens on Friday and will run until May 8. Participants can cast their votes at polling boxes at Pokemon Centers and Toys 'R Us locations, online, using a digital TV remote during the Pokemon XY & Z broadcast on TV Tokyo, and using a ballot in Coro Coro Comic.
Intermediate results will be announced on April 28 followed by the final results on the Oha Suta television program on June 7. A celebration will follow at a theater in Tokyo at a later date.
