Magneto Vote Event:

This incident originated from the official theatrical version of “Giratina and the Bouquet of Bingkong Shemi”. When this theatrical version was released, the official launched a Pokémon popularity vote for players to vote in order to create momentum. My favorite Pokemon that appeared in the theatrical version, when the Japanese Yahoo voted for the movie’s popular Pokemon wallpapers, Zero’s Magneto, who appeared as a supporting character in the movie, received only 10 initial votes among the 10 candidates. Ranked 8th, it can be said that it is very low. At this time, the players who are in trouble come out and speak.

During the voting period, there was a joke discussion on the Japanese anonymous discussion board 2CH, “I hope to deliberately brush the countdown Pokémon to the first place to make the cram school students cry”. The voting page has no mechanism to prevent swiping, and netizens have deliberately swiped for Magneto. Within half an hour, Magneto’s ranking climbed to No. 1, and the next day, a large number of votes caused the Yahoo server to be temporarily inaccessible. The final event ended ahead of schedule. In the official ranking, Magneto ranked second, second only to Shemi, and higher than Giratina, which ranked third. Then the theme wallpaper of Magneto was launched.

Follow-up to the Magneto Poll event:

After that, in 2016, the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon game officially held a similar event to vote for 720 Pokémon. In the voting results, Magneto ranked 24th among the 720 Pokémon, 1 place higher than Shemi. , 3 places higher than Giratina; the 720th (last) Pokémon was also given away as a gift. After that, the government seldom issued similar popularity voting activities, which may be a scruple When it comes to malicious vote-swiping behaviors like the Magneto incident, Magneto has become a popular Pokémon entirely out of sympathy, not because players really like it, so whether such a vote is fair or not is a matter of opinion.

This incident has far-reaching influence and occupies a certain position in the development history of “Pokémon”, so even now, it is still a talk of many players after dinner.
