Five days, three Mega Man polls.
This match was interesting in theory, but in practice it was no better than Snake/Squirtle/Pikachu. You had one character that was not a Pokemon scoring an easy first place finish as the other two characters cannibalized each other's support. It was cool to pay tribute to Mega Man I suppose, though the one difference in this poll as opposed to Snake's is that Pikachu got last place instead of second. Kind of a fitting revenge, given what Pikachu does to Mewtwo in the movie.
I won't pretend to understand how or why Mewtwo is stronger, though I'm sure it has a lot to do with Mewtwo being the ultimate Pokemon to get amongst the original 151. But assuming that's not the reason, I'm busting this out for the first time all contest: DAT TOP OPTION.
Speaking of which, here's a match that pits all the second place winners of the Semis together, including two whole Pokemon. Mega Man was destined to win this one based on the virtue of heavy SFF, but which Pokemon would come out on top?
A lot of people argued it would be Pikachu, but Mewtwo was already on fire, and if any of the rally people were checking in they probably would have voted for him as well. There wasn't really an option for Pikachu to win here. A 1-v-1 between these two in 2018 would definitely be interesting.
