Pokemon Red/Blue Splatfest Results Announced for Splatoon

To commemorate the anniversary of the Pokemon franchise, the latest Splatoon Splatfest (read, special event where players can choose teams and battle it out) was based around the Pokemon series, with the choices being between Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue.

And now, the results are in! In no particular order:

Japan

Pokemon Red had 61% popularity, 36% win rate
Pokemon Green had 39% popularity and 64% win rate

Result: Pokemon Green team wins

Europe

Pokemon Red had 64% popularity, 43% win rate
Pokemon Blue had 36% popularity, 57% win rate

Result: Pokemon Blue team wins

North America

Pokemon Red had 55% popularity, 41% win rate
Pokemon Blue had 45% popularity, 59% win rate

Result: Pokemon Blue team wins

As you can see, an all round win for the people who voted for Pokemon Blue in this event.

Interestingly enough, it seems like while the Blue team won the contest, the Red team had far more people voting for it. Part of this makes sense (Pokemon Red was more popular than Blue in the olden days, since Charizard was featured on the former’s box), but it still doesn’t explain why the less popular choice won. Are Pokemon Red fans somehow worse at Splatoon than Pokemon Blue fans? What’s the deal here?

Either way, those are the results for the latest Splatfest. Pokemon Blue wins in all regions.
