Starting in 2012, forumgoer Zebra began an effort to discover what the Nuzlocke Community's favorite Pokemon were, inspired by the 2008 "Top 50 Pokemon" ranking from Beckett. (IGN made a similar list in 2011.) Every forum member was encouraged to list their individual Top 10 favorite Pokemon. Each rank was assigned a point value (#1 worth 10pts, #2 worth 9pts, down to #10 worth 1pt) and Zebra compiled the results. This became an annual event, organized by group effort in 2013 and by SpectrumPanda in 2014.

NotesEdit

  • In the 2012 rankings, only 16 points separated #38 from #60, so Zebra included 60-51 as "Honorable Mentions". They were Bisharp (#51, 67pts), Pikachu, Archeops, Excadrill, Tyranitar, Electivire, Cyndaquil, Honchkrow, Giratina, and Gyarados (#60, 54pts). The points spread from #38 to #60 appears larger than 16 because Zebra applied tiebreakers.
  • In an alternate version of the 2013 rankings where ties all counted in the same rank, (as opposed to taking up multiple ranks,) the following all made the top 50: Mew, Mewtwo, Scyther, and Venasaur (T#41, 68pts), Vulpix, Hydreigon, Shedinja, Grovyle, Quagsire, Garchomp, Samurott, Cyndaquil, Lapras, Mightyena, Raichu, Electivire, Joltik, Krookodile, Lugia, Tyranitar, Charmander, Darkrai, and Butterfree (#50, 56pts).
  • In the 2014 rankings, tiebrakers were applied as follows:
    • Number of total votes
    • Number of 1st-place votes
    • Number of 2nd-place votes
    • etc.
  • SpectrumPanda also posted Pokemon ranked 51-60 as "honorable mentions" in the official thread, which were (in order) Hydreigon, Galvantula, Milotic, and Noivern (#51-54, 63pts), Samurott, Salamence, Altaria, Aegislash, Whimsicott, and Latias (#60, 59pts).
