Among all 151 monsters from the first generation of Pokémon, Charmander, the initial of fire, is the most popular in Brazil. The information was shared by The Toy Zone, which used searches for each little creature on Google as its research methodology.
In relation to the other South American countries, Peru and Chile share Charmander with Brazil, while Bulbasaur it is preferred in Argentina and Uruguay. Pikachu it also appears as the preference in Ecuador, Bolivia and Suriname. In the other four countries, the result is quite varied, with Paraguay Snorlax, Venezuela with Eevee, Colombia with Squirtle and Guyana with Gyarados.
Going into the global ranking, Pikachu appears first, representing about one in 10 Pokémon-related searches. Closing the world top 5 we still have in order: Charizard, Onix, Mewtwo and Eevee
It is also worth noting some trends by continent, such as in Europe, where Charizard it is the most popular in nine countries. Another interesting detail is that even though the initial three are extremely iconic, they were left out of the Top 10, with Bulbasaur appearing in 11th, Charmander in 14th and Squirtle in 16th.
The latest game in the main Pokémon series is Pokémon Sword and Shield, available exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
