'Best Pokemon Ever' March Madness - Round 1D: Earth Bracket - vote thru 3/20
 
The final phase of Round 1 is upon us and the final 16 starting Pokemon are revealed. This round has an organic feel with a hint of earth tones considering we’re now in the Earth Bracket. This bracket is named for the Earth Badge which is the final badge you receive in the Kanto Region prior to making your way up Victory Road and fighting the Elite 4! I think it’s fair to say that the Pokemon in this bracket do have their various connections to Earth and Nature. We’ve got otters and plants and boxers and bugs. There’s even a gourd! To me, this is most interesting bracket yet! Is it for you? Tell us in the comments below with your votes!

For information on the overall polling and how these Pokemon were picked, check out the first and original poll for this March Madness Bracket found here.


Oshawott vs. Ivysaur
Leafeon vs. Articuno
Gallade vs. Hitmonchan
Heracross vs. Swampert

Arcanine vs. Shedinja
Lugia vs. Vaporeon
Gourgeist vs. Toxicroak
Gengar vs. Charizard

Vote for the Pokemon that you think should win the matchup. Please vote on every matchup.
Please cast your votes in the following format, bolding the Pokemon that you choose to advance:

Pidgey vs. Raticate
Sandslash vs. Dratini

Polls are open until Sunday, March 20th, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST. Gotta vote em' all!

I bet you could also curl up and die with a Galvantula.

I just realized that that Bidoofus is Pokefreak's icon. Blah.

Oshawott vs. Ivysaur
Leafeon vs. Articuno
Gallade vs. Hitmonchan
Heracross vs. Swampert

Arcanine vs. Shedinja
Lugia vs. Vaporeon - Vaporeon looks cool but it's hard to justify ever using him IMO because there's other way better water Pokemon in the roster.
Gourgeist vs. Toxicroak
Gengar vs. Charizard

I don't really care if Charizard is overly popular. He's freaking Charizard. I love Gengar (never really got to use Mega Gengar) but Charizard is still awesome.

Easily, but not by choice.

Lots of neck and neck races here… hopefully some more people vote! There's three people who have voted in past rounds who haven't yet here and it'd be cool if some new users around here would vote too. The more votes the merrier!

I can't say I'm a fan of most of these... in fact I think there's only one thing in here I actually nominated. Random voting time!

I don't want people counting votes here but right now we have an even amount of voters and one matchup is currently a tie. Will any last minute voters come to make their case before midnight?

Is it this three way tie?

I'll happily change my vote to Talonflame then. I didn't realise it was a choice at the time. I thank Pokefreak for showing me the way.

So it's settled then. Remove Fletchling from bracket. Add Talonflame.

(What do you mean that's not the tie you were talking about?)

@Shadowlink

If we're allowed to change votes, then I also change my vote from Fletchling to TWO FLETCHLINGS so we're back at a tie, I guess, and both Pokemon should go through.

@J.K. Riki

Except then one of your garbage Fletchlings evolved into an acceptable Talonflame, and now we're at 3v1.

Stop trying to make F(l)etch(ling) happen!
Posted: 03/22/16, 21:51:37
@Mop it up

I'm trying to make it not happen!




Mmm.

@Shadowlink

Are you? Or is this an elaborate scheme where in I actually have two accounts here and am "fighting" with myself, playing the victim in order to get more people on my, and therefore Fletchling's, side?

Just sayin.

Confirm by speaking negatively about Fletchling more.

@J.K. Riki

I don't think you're clever/insane enough to come up with such a scheme . Pokémon Fight Club this aint.

Especially when you consider that piss-poor attempt at reverse psychology . Unfortunately I don't believe for a second my posts are actually helping your cause .

(Ok maybe the spider pic a little)

I am going to win the war though. Count on it.

EDIT: Speaking of wars, no-one has broken poor Fink's tie yet. What do we do?

@Shadowlink

Oh they have. I have other means of breaking the tie rather fairly. All tie's have broken. I'm going to post the next round this evening and it'll explain how I did it in there.
