>>25069447 Why do people think that competitive use/abilities correlates to popularity? Most players don't even play competitively.
I hardly see people gushing on about Pokemon like Talonflame, Aegislash or any of the generies. Very little merch of those Pokemon too. Most players still think that a non-mega evolved Charizard is one of the strongest Pokemon.
>>25070424 Greninja's a startermon and those tend to get a boost in popularity. It's also banned in Smogon's meta which is not a good thing for most pokemon that aren't there due to a mega or aren't legendary. What are you on about?
- It's a final stage starter. - It's a fricking ninja. - Ash has a ~special~ one.
The fact that it's broken to some degree or another in 6v6 singles isn't really a factor in its popularity.
If you replace 'ninja' with 'dragon', Charizard prior to Gen 6 fits all of this while being fucking terrible competitively - they then intentionally 'overpowered' Charizard to match the fact that it's popular.
