The Splatoon Splatfest events have often focused on fairly simple conflicts, only dipping into feisty brand-related tussles occasionally. The Transformers event in North America was one example, and this weekend we had the Pokémon generation one event worldwide. With the Virtual Console games arriving on 27th February fans have been able to warm up with some Splatoon battles, showing their allegiance to one of the classic games.

The results have been announced and we have some interesting outcomes - check them out below.


  • Pokémon Red - 61% popularity, 36% win rate
  • Pokémon Green - 39% popularity - 64% win rate - WINNER


  • Pokémon Red - 64% popularity, 43% win rate
  • Pokémon Blue - 36% popularity, 57% win rate - WINNER

North America

  • Pokémon Red - 55% popularity, 41% win rate
  • Pokémon Blue - 45% popularity, 59% win rate - WINNER

Some interesting results, with the less popular title winning all three times courtesy of higher win rates - skills triumphed over raw numbers.

Perhaps these are wins for the underdogs, then. Which side were you on?
