I think it's best to group popularity poll results into 1 thread.
I know that I made another thread about "Favorite Kanto gym leader poll" from Japan.

There's more from Japan currently:

(Japanese, 2018 July) 151 Bandai Pokemon Kids figurine popularity vote results:
According to Bandai, the poll received 94,850 votes in total.
Only the top 10 were announced currently.
Top 10 in no particular order:
Charizard,
Metapod,
Gengar,
Magnemite,
Jigglypuff
Pikachu,
Raichu,
Lapras,
Mewtwo
Eevee

Was the Pokemon Kids poll gen 1 only? I doubt Metapod of all people is more popular than al gen II-VII pokemon

Also Erika is a boring choice Japan (also also she's to bitchy to be a Yamato Nadeshiko so no "ideal japanese beauty" excuse either)

Yes, only the Kanto 151 as said in the title :)

Erika's manga story helped a lot, since most of the Japanese people have read the manga.
The manga was that big in Japan.

Looks like the Magnemite meme lives on.

You mean the anime version of Erika? The same anime that ignores all game characterization for the worst constantly? Yeah, no.

Game Erika is at worst airheaded and likes to gossip, but she's not mean. And like said manga Erika is a the smart and reasonable leader of the Kanto Gym leaders. Her popularity is fine.

(Japanese, 2018 July) 151 Bandai Pokemon Kids figurine popularity vote results:
Top 10 in no particular order:
Charizard,
Metapod,
Gengar,
Magnemite,
Jigglypuff
Pikachu,
Raichu,
Lapras,
Mewtwo
Eevee
None surprises: Charizard, Gengar, Jigglypuff, Pikachu, Lapras, Mewtwo, Eevee

Metapod is a surprise, I can't help but feel it might have been a joke choice (Magikarp would have been too obvious).
Magnemite must still be riding high on the "Coiling" trend.
And surprised Raichu is up there along with Pikachu, then again is it the normal Raichu people are thinking of or the more popular Alolan Raichu?

(Japanese, 2018 June) "Who was your favorite Kanto gym leader?"
Statistics (translated):

1. Erica (133 votes) (30.5%)
2. Giovanni 69votes (15.8%)
3. Sabrina 67 votes (15.4%)
4. Misty 61 votes (14.0%)
5. Brock 48 (11.0%)
6. Blaine 29 (6.7%)
7. Lt. Surge 17 (3.9%)
8. Koga 12 (2.7%)
Others are mentioning how the Manga may have played a role in the positioning. While I wouldn't say they were wrong, I have a feeling for at least the top 5 that some other factors were at play:

Erika: As I said in the previous thread, the most likely poll taker was a Japanese male and, of the female Kanto Gym Leaders, Erika is the most waifu-able, fitting the traditional/conservative ideals of a wife (a woman who'll take care of the home and when the man comes home she'll drop what she's doing to make sure he's comfortable). Of course that's not to say there isn't anything for woman here, her Gym only has women in it and she is the Grass-type Gym Leader... *innocent whistle*

Giovanni: Rich, powerful, and charismatic; who wouldn't want to be Giovanni? Or have him as your husbando if you rather have a sugar daddy taking care of you.

Sabrina: Though Erika is the most popular waifu that doesn't mean the other two girls don't have their suitors. So the question is why Sabrina over Misty? Well, the only thing I can think of is that, along with Erika, Sabrina does look more Asian than Misty. Yes, I know, a very shallow reason, but once again think of the (what I'm assuming is the most likely) demographic here. And though I don't really see Sabrina as the doting house wife type, she does have that "mysterious girl" vibe to her which is so alluring.

Misty: We got Erika as the girl next door, Sabrina as the goth chick, now we just need the feisty tomboy! Let's not be too harsh on the Japanese male voters, because if this was done in the US it'll be Misty winning cause she's American male's #1 waifu. Misty is the type of gal you can have a drink with and will join you in a fight, though be careful cause if you don't treat her right she'll kick your butt. Her feisty-ness is accentuated with her red hair, which once again may have affected her position as not that many Japanese people have red hair. But out of all of them I would say Misty is probably the one that girls would look up to the most.

Brock: The last four to me is a toss up. I think Brock is ahead just because of the anime. Brock has received the most character development of Ash's companions being allowed to go through a full character arc. It makes him relateable, someone you could maybe see a bit of yourself in.

Blaine: Often presented as a wacky sorta mad scientist type, he's also a bit of a meme generator. Whether you're comparing his mustache with Dr. Wily's or Eggman's or quoting his pre-battle "I hope you brought Heal Burn!", there's probably something you can find about Blaine you can have fun with.

Lt. Surge: I'm surprised Lt. Surge isn't last. He's a (male) retired soldier from a foreign land. I suppose you could maybe say his voters could have been a few woman that preferred their husbandos muscular and foreign, though I think that would be a stretch. Eh, let's just say those who picked him are Arnold Schwarzenegger fans and move on.

Koga: A surprise, even if he didn't make the top 5 I would think he'd beat out Blaine and Lt. Surge simply cause, aside from Erika, he's the most Japanese of the Gym Leaders being a ninja! Though maybe that's why he wasn't picked? He felt too one-noted and stereotypical? Or maybe whatever he had appealing about him one of the above Gym Leaders did it better. Giovanni is more appealing, Brock more relateable, Blaine more fun, and Lt. Surge more masculine. Sorry Koga, maybe if it was your daughter here instead of you she would have gotten more vo-YIKES! *Dodges a barrage of throwing stars*

(Japanese, 2016 June) Pokemon General Elections

720:バオッキー Simisear
Ah yes, at the time when Gen VI was the most recent gen and Ash-Greninja was the newest hotness (before it lost in the League). Anyway all the choices make sense for the top 10 at the time with the usual suspects all present (with others like Mewtwo and Eevee not that far behind). But, let's be honest here, the one reason we all remember this list is not because who was on top, but rather who was on the very bottom: Simisear, Japan's most least popular Pokemon. Though to be fair, that's just due to not being voted for than people specifically voting it as least popular, had they had a different poll for least popular Pokemon I think the results would have been different. If anything, Simisear isn't the least popular but rather the more accurate term would be "most forgettable"; cause no matter what the list who would vote for Simisear (at least before this list, oddly being voted the least might have increased its popularity a bit, or at least awareness it exists)?

Metapod was a joke.
There was a campaign called "Make kids cry!" lead by Pokemon Matome (a huge site) which encouraged adults to vote for unpopular Pokemon.
