Pokémon General Election's Bottom Choice Gets Special Event

Nintendo wants gamers to give Simisear another chance

The Pokémon General Election 720 event crowned Greninja (Gekkōga) as the fan-favorite, but where there is a #1, there has to be a #720.

The bottom choice was Pansear's evolution: Simisear (Baokkie), a fire-type monkey that first appeared in Pokémon Black & White. Exactly why little love was shown for Simisear is anyone's guess, but Pokémon Centers in Japan are looking to change that and cheer up Japan's least favorite.

From June 25 to July 16, all Pokémon Centers will distribute a Simisear PR Business Card and the Pokémon itself to visitors with a Nintendo 3DS and Pokémon X,Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire. Nintendo seems to hope that if more players get a chance to raise a Simisear, his reputation will improve.
