Pokémon Sun and Moon is about to change so much for the Pokémon series. Not only are there new features to use and a new region to explore, but there’s a ton of new beasts. The Pokémon Sun and Moon new monsters are some of the coolest the series has ever introduced. But which new monster is the best?

Now that Pokémon Sun and Moon‘s is out in stores, it’s time to tally the votes for the tournament. We started with the 64 most interesting new Pokémon and put them in one-on-one battles to decide the winner. After weeks of voting for the best new Pokémon from Sun and Moon, we have a winner!

The Winner: Mimikyu!

Pokémon great and small were part of this, but in the end, it wasn’t about power or history. It came down to which Pokémon has the biggest following among the hardcore fans. On social media, Mimkyu has been a hit since we first saw the Pikachu-camouflaged character. Mimikyu is so popular it swept through legendaries, starters, and returning monsters to win the big prize.

All hail Mimikyu, Fandom’s winner of best Pokémon Sun and Moon monster! Now, we should all rise to hear its anthem.

Check out below to see just how it all broke down in the brackets below. Thanks again for voting!
