A poll was run on the bridge near Molinaro to find out who would be Parkside’s favorite Pokémon! With 500+ of the little guys running around, this could’ve been a close race. But the results are in! Somewhat surprisingly, the winner is…Pikachu. Runner ups were Jigglypuff, Charizard, and Charmander in what turned out to be actually a pretty close race. 61 people took the poll and eleven of their votes were for our little electric mouse. Four votes each went to Charizard, Gyrados, and Jigglypuff, tying them for second and three votes went to Charmander and Squirtle, giving them third place in our hearts.
Our honorable mentions for this challenge were, Snorlax, Goldeen, Abra, Flareon, Togepi, Venusaur, Espeon, Weedle, Ninetails, Lapras, Meowth, Rapidash, Gardevoir, Articuno, Eevee, Squirtle, Machamp, Dragonite, Chikorita, Mudkip, Charmeleon, Poliwag, Rayquaza, Geodude, Flareon, Bulbasaur, Scyther, Oddish, Mew, Gengar, Vulpix and Ariados.
Also, two students should be mentioned for accepting the extra challenge presented at the table. Freshman student, Jeremiah Jeffrey was able to name the first generation of Pokémon (his favorite is Dragonite) and Junior student, Ken Zidek (who’s favorite is Charmander) was able to name the first five Pokéballs from the first generation, which are the Pokéballs, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, Safari Ball, and Master Ball, in the Can You Name All the Pokéballs challenge. Good Job, gentlemen. You truly are the very best, like no one ever was.
