    Rotom's not legendary though. It's like calling Porygon legendary. Except for the fact Rotom has extra forms. But they both can be obtained in-game AND can be bred with ditto.

    Meanwhile Phione (although can also be bred for itself, I think?) has to be obtained through Manaphy (Event legendary only). That's probably their edge in choosing there.

    Next stage of voting has started.
    The only very surprising thing has been Latios beating Jirachi.
    Somewhat interestingly, while all the other "trios" are losing hard to the event or big legend...Raikou is holding pretty strong against Arceus. You know, comparatively.

    Looks like the next round has started.

    I voted against Arceus because I want it to lose. Apparently we're only on the left side of the bracket.

    Looks like they'll alternate every couple days until we trim down to the semi-finals

    Well Registeel is getting the poop from Dialga. But I am pleased to see that arceus is having fierce competition from Raikou. Pointless to bring up, but at the bottom of the page the 3 gen cover legendaries are all next to the Hot Topic promotion info.

    The worst thing about Arceus is its form-changing. So even if it just won the Dream vote poll people still want more Arceus so they can have different formes of it :U

    Thanks for intel, I will vote for something that I think needs more love: Shaymin.

    Jirachi and Shaymin are both really close (6%) in their respective fights. We need more people to vote for those Mythical Pokémon!

    Dialga is overrated. Rally Registeel to victory! But in all seriousness, I hope Ho-oh wins. Imagine Ho-oh with V-Create.

    Don't count RAikou out just yet. Yesterday Arceus had the 70% majority
    Now it only has the 68% majority

    If Arceus wins again...

    just because it's supposed to be god doesn't mean you have to vote for it

    This. There was already a chance quite recently to get Arceus, we really don't need another. He doesn't even have a bloody DW ability! Put yesterday's vote in for him without thinking, doubt it matters. I want to see one of the dogs win, they have pretty neat DW abilities.

    At least Raikou put up a strong fight. Had we been able to vote longer we may have been able to get him near 50%

    edit: I still don't understand why people think that we're getting a dream world ability out of this thing

    The second part of the first round has begun! And it is progressing as predictably as possible.

    I am somewhat surprised that Manaphy is losing to Lugia
    Also seems like overall this half of the bracket is way more lopsided. Lots of high 80s, low 90s

    CELEBI IS BEATING ARCEUS YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sorry overly excited right now)
    I am now satisfied with the tournament/competition thing.

    YES
    My faith in humanity (or at least in Pokémon) has been restored.

    Even if Arceus makes a come from behind victory, I don't see him beating Darkrai face to face

    I honestly don't understand why people are assuming we get a Pokemon to download at ALL out of this.

    When I read "special downloadable prize pack" I immediately assumed screensavers and pictures and shit. We'll wait and see though, and I find it doubtful we'll get any dream world abilities out of this.

    As such, I voted for the ones I like the best non-competitively. Don't worry, I still voted against Arceus :P

    As long as Arceus loses, I'm happy. I'd love to see Ho-oh or Lugia win it all though. The big surprise to me (besides Celebi beating Arceus) is how badly Giratina is beating Dialga. It's not even close.
