Starter Showdown: Clash – Alolan Adventures

Welcome to 2022! We hope all of our fans had an excellent holiday break and that the return to reality doesn’t hit too hard…

Galarian Beginnings Results

After a week of voting, fans have decided their top pick from the three Galarian Starter Pokémon. We hosted a place to vote on our Discord server for the first time and the results there showed an easy win for Sobble. However, over on Twitter the voters showed a different story entirely.

So, without further delay the results of the Galar Round are as follows…

Grookey25% (525 votes)24% (61 votes)
Scorbunny43% (902 votes)34% (87 votes)
Sobble32% (671 votes)42% (110 votes)

Note: figures and percentages are rounded-up

Grookey seems to have been equally popular on both Twitter and Discord, while Scorbunny was most popular on Twitter and Sobble was most popular on Discord. But, the totalled numbers mean that Scorbunny will be the Galarian Starter Pokémon heading into the next round!

The Contenders

This time Starter Showdown will be split across 9 rounds of voting: one round for each region, with Kanto receiving an additional round for the Let’s Go games. The rounds will be as follows:

Alola Round Voting

It’s time for the second round of Starter Showdown: Clash! This time we’re jetting off to Alola, home of Z-Moves and the spectacular appearances of the mysterious Ultra Beasts. The Alola region made its debut appearance in Pokémon Sun & Moon in 2016 and with it came the region’s three starter Pokémon

The Alolan set of starters brought something new to the table this time: Rowlet the Grass-type Grass Quill Pokémon was the first starter Pokémon to evolve into a part Ghost-type, Litten the Fire-type Fire Cat Pokémon didn’t evolve into a part Fighting-type Pokémon and Popplio the Water-type Sea Lion Pokémon is the only starter Pokémon to evolve into a part Fairy-type.

So there’s the three you’ll be choosing between this time. Cast your votes in the Twitter poll below (you will need an account to do so) or visit the PokéJungle Discord server and head to the #starter-showdown channel to vote and limited access to roles and special channels to discuss your pick.

That all for this week! Remember that once we have crowned our next champion we will host a giveaway featuring merchandise of the lucky Pokémon, so get your votes in!
