The same. Pikachu doesnt seem to be getting the focus of promotion this generation. Even LGPE seemed to be more about trying to get Eevee to replace the OG Starters. So Pikachu might be a bit stronger thanks to brand refresh, but it wouldnt be worth more than maybe a 1 or 2% increase in the results he got last contest against non-Noble Niners.

The better question is just how much Charizard will tank after not just the FRAUD EXPOSED stuff of last contest, but with how obnoxiously hard hes getting pushed in this gen.

I didn't knew that once this site was on TOP 100 of the Internets. Times change. And to be fair I am still suprised that this site is still going on.

So I feel like I completely forgot what happened in recent contests? How many contests have we had since BGE3? That was the last one that I can remember, probably because it was the last one I felt excitement in.

As for rallies, Starcraft was tremendous fun. Undertale was fun too, but would have been much better if this site had vote totals along the lines of what it used to. If this site was bringing in 130k votes per day instead of 50k, some of the non-Undertale games might have actually had a chance and it would have felt competitive, rather than like watching the Patriots beat up on the Browns.

And now of course we don't get close to 50k votes per day anymore as we did in BGE3. I do remember out votals falling way below that.

I guess what I'm saying is that there is no good way to deal with rallies other than finding a way to increase our natural votals again.

@red_sox_777 Well to tell the truth few care for the contests anymore. This is what I like rallies myself, because they spice things up.
Well whatevar.

This site went full leftist and drove off well over 95% of its traffic. There is no coming back from that.

This site was always leftist. Just look at some of these past polls:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/poll/2936-
https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/poll/3435-

Both of those polls took place during the height of our greatest vote totals (2006-2010) and the 2 liberal options outperformed the 2 conservative options. Though keep in mind that "Moderate" was still the most popular option in both polls.

Typically, people end up becoming more conservative as they get older. It would be interesting to see if this trend also applies to this site's users, as our average age continues to increase. Unless of course our voting pool somehow dries up completely before that can happen or the PotD feature has been discontinued. Cause it's going to take at least 20 years before we see any kind of notable shift in the political spectrum of the site's users, if it even happens.

Democrat and leftist are not the same.

I don't think GotD2 has ever been confirmed. It's just been assumed because of the timing of the contest.
