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*

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.

Being my favorite, I'm not sure if Chandelure being so popular makes me happy or what. I remember when BW released people just uttered "Shanderaa is literally just a chandelier how is that creative" and people nowadays still cite it as a reason why the newer games have no creativity, because lol objectmons (despite this, Vanilluxe and Cofagrigus show up here).

The rest of the pool seems in line though I'm surprised to see Zekrom so low. Pansage also seems oddly high over options such as Volcarona, Victini, Zorua / Zoroark, and even Mienshao. I get the numbers in this poll aren't as drastic as others, but it's still noteworthy.

Top 30 popular Black and White Pokemon added to the top post.
Poller: Hey, since Unova is based on New York, should we contact the Pokemon Company USA to also hold a poll on their website for the United States?
Pokemon Company Japan: Hmm... NAH!

Okay, jokes aside, let's see what the Japanese audience thinks of Poke NY's Pokemon:

(Note I'm going to be skipping ones I have nothing to say about)

1. Chandelure number one? Makes sense, it's a popular Pokemon, it got into Pokken after all.
2. Whimsicott number 2? Really?... Was this the joke Pokemon everyone voted for? Not that it's a bad Pokemon or anything, it being in the top 30 I'm not surprised cause its a prime Prankster user, but as high as number 2?
3 & 11. And here's where I think a major difference would be if they had also polled US I believe. Zekrom would probably have swapped places with Reshiram. Reshiram would probably still have gotten on the top 10, but Zekrom would easily be the top 3.
4 & 5. Reuniclus above Hydreigon, alright? Reuniclus another odd one here along with Whimsicott. If not jokes I wounder why they're so high. Because Japanese prefer cute Pokemon over tough looking?
6 & 7. Lol, Serperior and Snivy are one right after the other. That said Snivy probably would have gotten on the top 10, if not top 5, here in the US; not sure about Serperior. Though, it is interesting how Serperior, the European inspired Final Starter, got into the top 10 above the Japanese inspired Samurott.
8 & 12. Not that Oshawott was that far behind. I remembered when Oshawott got a lot of hate, say what you want about the anime but I think it did a lot to help with Oshawott's reputation. I have nothing to really say about Joltik, it's just another oddity especially since it won over its evolution somehow. Joltik isn't that much cuter.
10. Hmm, Unova waifu Pokemon option? Not all regions can have Gardevoir or Lopunny.
13. Going to say anime helped here, it's the only Elemental Monkey (come on, Simisear was a prime joke Pokemon to vote for!).
15 & 19. I Think Volcarona and Victini deserve to be a bit higher. Got nothing to say about Minccino.
17. Poor Zoroark, Pokemon Company had such high hopes for you being the Unova Lucario. At least you tied with Litwick who's final evo is first place?
24. Hey Samurott, look at it this way, at least you're on the list. No member of the Tepig family in site. *sigh*
25. You don't like Audino, you like the experience that Audino gives when you knock it out. #TeamPlasmaWasRight
30. And everyone makes fun of the ice cream cone Pokemon.
No Show Surprises: Excadrill, Krookodile, Darmanitan, Ferrothorn, Golurk, Braviary, Terrakion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Keldeo, Meloetta, & Genesect

I'm a bit surprised that Primarina scored so high, and that neither Decidueye nor Inceneroar made it to top 10.
I'm surprised that people like Togedemaru, even when it's a Pika clone.

Gladion came 2nd. It's very rare to see a male character rank so high.
I'm surprised that there's no Mallow.
I'm also surprised that people actually like Nanu.

I'm surprised that there's no Mallow.
I'm also surprised that people actually like Nanu.
Top 10 Alolan Pokemon:
1, 3, & 7.
I've noticed Japanese audiences lean toward the cuter mons than the cooler looking ones. Decidueye is popular in the west cause it looks cool, meanwhile Rowlet is just adorable with its little leaf bowtie. Same with Litten, though not sure about Incineroar as its design isn't as popular here cause it does look a bit wonky. Primarina is the exception because, well, it's the go-to waifu Pokemon of Alola. Okay, to be a bit more fair to Primarina, it's also a pretty good Pokemon too (I used it in Ultra Moon and it's pretty tanky and hits hard with Special attacks).
2, 6, & 10. I think Togegemaru has more going for it than other Pikaclones, it's Steel-type makes it stand out as being a more defensive plus having good Attack and Speed; also the anime makes it likable enough. Though the "pikaclone" that I'm not surprised to see high on the list is Mimikyu, both due to being the woobie while also a terrifying monster. And of course Alolan Raichu have widely been well received as the series mascot's better evolution... also it's cute.
4. Cute plus got anime push (by the most popular Alolan character no less).
5. Cool plus anime push (notice how it comes in after the cute Pokemon that got the anime push ;P).
8. I was going to make an "THE EDGE" joke with why Sylvally was here, but is that really a popular thing in Japan? Like, yes, that trope is all over manga/anime and Japanese games, but does anyone in Japan actually take that seriously? Still, it's a cool Pokemon with pretty balanced stats so can be used in a variety of ways (but, once again, it's after the a cuter mon (Litten in this case)).
9. A surprise at first, but then again you remember who was Cosmog's caretaker in the games). Admittedly Nebby also had much more personality as a Cosmog than as a Solgaleo/Lunala. The anime also made its cuteness stand out more.

Top 10 Alolan Characters:
1.
Not a surprised, for both good and wrong reasons. Good reason is because I do feel Lillie is one of the most developed characters in the Gen VII games, or at least in vanilla Sun & Moon. Wrong reason is because she's idolized... yes, we're going back to waifu territory again. I'm sure many have claimed Lillie as their waifu... even though she's underage. With Erika, Sabrina, and even Misty to an extent it was alright as they've been depicted as fully mature woman at some point (Misty was a young adult by the time of the Gen II games). But Lillie does not have that excuse, she is a young girl thus why I consider the idolizing of her as a "waifu" wrong. Sadly, she won't be the only case...
2. While I'm not sure if the "edgy" personality is a thing emulated by real life Japanese culture, in manga/anime it's very much alive and a loved trope. And in Pokemon you can't get any edgier than Gladion. Also, while not as much as Lillie, he does get a bit of his own development as well as becoming the "adversary rival" compared to Hau being the "friendly rival". I also suppose he himself is subjected to being some "husbando" though double standards doesn't give that as much of a creepy implication as a waifu does.
3 & 9. This is a surprise, I wasn't expecting any of the playable characters let alone both and the girl one scoring so high (especially over characters not mentioned like Mallow, Olivia, Plumeria, Hala is pretty cool... yeah, don't think the other male characters not on the list had much of a chance)! Not quite sure why, aside the obvious for the (underage) playable girl. Maybe customization plays a role?
4 & 5. Both Acerola and Lana are likable characters with fun personalities. You may also notice they're the only two Captains on this list, and both are (underage) girls. *sigh* Well, I say that, though I think this may apply more to Lana's place in 5th than Acerola in 4th. Acerola is a bit surprising since I'm more willing to believe she's here just on her personality alone. Being both a Captain, story important character, and Elite Four gave her a lot of dialogue time to show off her cute and quirky personality which is pretty enduring.
6. IT'S YOUR BOI! Despite calling himself the "hated boss", Guzma just oozes personality and raw charisma. But he does have depth beyond just being the boss of the initial villain team; he had an abusive childhood, is a strong trainer but just never good enough, failed to become a Captain, and used than betrayed by Lusamine who he admired for having seen "potential" in him. He goes from an extreme and harmful jerk to a woobie. That said, as I said he haw this raw charisma that has gained him a team of followers. So whether you want him to be your boss or wanting to help him, Guzma seems to have a side to him most can get behind.
7. I don't know about any of you, but I can only wish to grow into the "couldn't give a damn" person that Nanu is. Nanu does seem like the oddball on the list, but his personality carries him all the way on this list. I think on some level we all can relate to Nanu, having had moments where you're just "done" with something and just want to shrug and walk away. He is a character in Pokemon we haven't really seen before, most characters either being happy or serious but never really apathetic. Not only that Nanu does have his own hidden depths, being a former International Police agent who quit due to an incident where an agent under his orders was killed by an Ultra Beast (a mission Looker was also on). During the Poni Island arc and the SM Looker Missions he helps out in his own ways to try and assure the safety of everyone. He is a Kahuna after all, which is notable as I don't feel he's from Alola yet still got chosen by Poni Island's guardian anyway.
8. You can't keep a good rival down. Hau continues the tradition of friendly rival though unlike previous generations he's the only one allowing him to get more development. Hau's goal are also more unique, it's not the player he's that interested in beating but rather his grandfather Hala. He doesn't really become that interested in beating the player seriously until challenging them for the Champion title at the end of the game/post game (after having beat Hala in an all-out battle most likely). Otherwise Hau is just fine getting to go to the islands and eating all kinds of malasada. Though Hau, say it with me, too has hidden depths. Hau has father abandonment issues and suffers a momentarily BSOD when he failed to protect Lillie and Cosmog from being taken by Plumeria. He quickly gets over it though and helps the player and Gladion raid the Aether Foundation, his shinning moment being pointing out a foolish mistake Faba made. Hau may act simple of the surface, but has a lot going on underneath.
10. Surprised Lusamine scored so low, though she does just barely make the list. Not sure why, Lusamine is both beautiful and one of the most intimidating/terrifying villains we've had. Hidden depths here too, mostly to explain her motivation/why she went insane. I wonder if her changed role in USUM may have affected her popularity, in SM she was on top of things with only the player able to defeat her while in USUM she was tossed aside by Necrozma. I stand by the opinion SM has the better and tighter story, and how Lusamine ends in the story is both deserved but hopeful she can be redeemed/recover from her affliction (Lusamine just becoming sane again and forgiven for what she had done in USUM feels undeserved and empty in comparison).

Though as Cresselia~~ and I mentioned, it's a surprise that Mallow, Plumeria, and especially Olivia didn't get so many votes considering how swayed the poll is towards waifu. Then again, with how high a score Lillie got, maybe all those who use their vote on their waifu went with Lillie allowing for more diversity than normal. Also noticed no member of the Ultra Recon Squad got on the list, such pivotal characters that needed to be wedged into an already good story to break it. *rolls eyes*

Added BW human characters popularity poll to the OP.
I'm surprised that male human characters ranked so high.
I'm also surprised that Hilda isn't more popular than she was.

BW human characters popularity poll:
1. N (366)
2 & 3. Ingo (348) & Emmet (298)
4 & 5. Skyla (165) & Elesa (155)
6. Cheren (141)
7. Cilan (???)
8 & 10. Hilbert (137) & Hilda (126)
9. Bianca (128)
1. No surprise there. N is to Gen V as Lillie is to Gen VII, minus the waifu factor (which this poll looks to mostly ignore, at least for the top spots). He's one of the most developed Pokemon characters, not only seeing him go through his character arc but then getting to see how it has affected him. Seriously GF, the third versions/second paired games should just be sequels to the initial paired games, it'll help develop the region and characters way more than an "alternate" story that barely changes anything and when it does makes the story worse...

2 & 3. What? How? Why? These have to be a collaborative joke vote, cause they don't really have personalities or even a notable role. They just exist to be bosses for the Battle Subway. The anime sort of gave them some more personality (and those episodes were pretty good, though mostly because of Team Rocket), though the manga barely had them involved with anything. Yeah, you can't convince me these weren't jokes (it would only be a bigger joke if it was the one note members of the Seven Sages).
Though I'm curious why Ingo got 50 more votes than Emmet? Also if they combined both their votes they would have taken the number one spot by a landslide, so why split it. And was it done on purpose they were close to one another, like most of the joke voters discussed which half would vote for whom? If there was any 4chan editing joke I could also imagine this being it, replacing the actual 2nd and 3rd with joke characters.

4 & 5. There's the waifus, together in the upper middle of the list. I'm noticing the more passive a female character is the higher the votes they usually get (and if one is a main character they get all the waifu votes, *coughLilliecough*). But that's not the case with Unova (Anthea and Concordia barely have any character development in the games so guess they got looked over) so everyones favorite female duo split the votes.
There's only 10 points separating them so it's really just what the voters preferences were. Do you like your girl lively (if not a bit air headed) and always on the go or do you like her calmer (if not sometimes awkward) and like to watch her move and pose? Or you could like them "together", the games shows they're heterosexual life partners already.

6. Huh, interesting choice. I like Cheren enough even if he kind of falls a bit on the flat side, I'd argue throughout the game Bianca shows more development while Cheren comes near the end and B2W2 showing the results of this development. Maybe many voters saw maybe a bit of themselves in Cheren?

7. Going to say the anime has a lot to do with this (and also goes to show how unpopular Iris was). Cilan certainly got a lot more personality being one of Ash's companions, and being the first one to replace Brock thus having to do the same duties as Brock really meant they needed Cilan to stand out. They made him a bit more eccentric, opposite of his game character funny enough, but his lighthearted attitude made it more endearing. And when he needed to be serious or think something through he certainly pulls through. Anime Cilan is the type of friend you want to have on a journey.

8 & 10. Interesting that Hilbert got more votes than Hilda, though Hilda does look like more of a rough and tumble girl and I think it's been established the general Japanese waifu voters aren't too keen on that. Though there's plenty to like about the Gen V playable characters aside from that. For one thing they're older than most other playable characters, in their mid teens, which lessens the oddity that a 10 year old is wandering the region by themselves. They actually feel like general RPG characters which might have allowed for a bit more immersion (and any of the more sexual or implied situations feel less awkward playing characters you'd imagine being in such situations... even though they're still underage). And let's not forget the story of Black & White really pushes the playable characters in the forefront than any other game, being the second half of the "Truths & Ideals" duo along with N.

9. And we end on Bianca, who I'm glad got on if only because Cheren got on. As I said, Bianca had her character development throughout the game and one of the most memorable parts of the game was Bianca standing up to her father in Nimbasa City. Because we see her growth, which wasn't as straight as Cheren's, it made her more of an interesting character as the player themselves are wondering what Bianca plans on doing with her life after the journey is over.

Now were their any character I'm surprised didn't get on the top 10? Hmm, not really, at least with a Japanese audience. Being the first games based on a non-Japanese region (or one that's not as closely linked to one such as Alola is), I can kind of see Japanese voters having less attachment to certain characters aside from the popular ones. It's probably why not one but two joke characters got up to second and third place, maybe more willing to join in on the joke cause they didn't really have a favorite character in Unova.
