Last week, the official Play Nintendo website ran a poll to find out who fans would love to give a Valentine to on Valentine's Day. The poll featured many famous Nintendo characters such as Mario, Link and Isabelle, but in the end, Waluigi won in a landslide victory.
Apparently, this wasn't a one-off, as The Pokémon Company's Japanese Twitter account is now interested to know which character from the Pokémon universe fans would most like to spend some special time with on Valentine's Day. In order to find out who is the most-loved, it's running a poll featuring seven males and seven females from the long-running series.
If your Japanese is a little bit rusty, Siliconera has provided a handy translation guide, so you can actually hop on Twitter and use one of the following hashtags to have your say. The winners will be revealed in a special illustration on 14th March, which also happens to be White Day.
"Which of these characters would you like to give a Valentines chocolate to?”
- Lance – #ワタルにチョコをあげる
- Morty – #マツバにチョコをあげる
- Steven Stone – #ダイゴにチョコをあげる
- Volkner – #デンジにチョコをあげる
- N – #Nにチョコをあげる
- Sycamore – #プラターヌにチョコをあげる

Lance is bae (platonically, of course)
Slender Man of course
Legit surprised they didn't put Misty on as a choice.
Elesa is a model. So she is canonically the eye-candy. And I do love Sycamore's cool scientist vibes.
I don't want chocolates if they aren't from Misty...
..but Erika or Jasmine are also good.
Cynthia gets my vote
We shall rise for Misty!
Skyla She's my favorite.
Misty, May, and Flannery are all good picks! Serena, Lana, and Lillie seem pretty great, too! Hard to say one for certain.
Personality is about the only way to pick. May isn't quite there (yet), Flannery has swung wildly in portrayals, Serena is overly loyal IF you're her one and otherwise aloof, and Lana is a bit too weird for me. Misty is driven but the tomboyishness IRL would be off-putting and Lillie is laid back and charming but timid. If you could get the best of both worlds from Misty and Lillie (Flannery's original personality), that'd be perfect.
Cynthia is the best girl. You can disagree. But you would be wrong.
I'm going to say Cynthia.. mostly because I'm over 30 & going on a Valentine date with most of the other (under 18) girls would be icky.
Let me vote for Charizard TPC, you cowards!
Flannery #アスナからチョコをもらう would get my chocolate. And maybe I'd even let her play with me.
@KingBowser86 In UK "sp**tic" is a horrible anti-disabled insult word. It mocks the truly awful illness cerebral palsy. It's ok if you didn't know, but it's better not to use it.
Surely the internet mob can get Waluigi to the top of this poll too?
Elesa xo <3 xP
Oh, do you really want me to say it...
Fine, it's Lenora. And now you know one of my weaknesses - dark skin.
Jasmine is pure
I will vote Cynthia but I am upset that Olivia is not on this list.
Gotta go with Flannery.
@Lionyone @KingBowser86 You are correct Lionyone, the use of the word spastic is considered pretty horrific here in the UK (So much so that Hasbro had place stickers over the name of thousands of toys they had named "Spastic" without thinking").
However, this is an online forum with lots of users from different countries. Unless someone is deliberately using it in an insulting way it's best to let it go.
I say this as the older brother/guardian of an autistic man who was abused with the word spastic as he was growing up.
Edit: And now back to the light-hearted "who do I fancy" comments.
So in Japan, females give the males chocolate. Although a month later, they have to return the favor. https://favy-jp.com/topics/1706
I guess from the female selection, Flannery. She's pretty hot for a fire trainer!
My actual pick would be Olivia, because insert a joke about rocks and making me hard. XD
Or maybe Mallow, because she can spice up my life!
I'm board of the puns now. Back to playing Pokémon Sun.
Erika is a good pick for Gen 1, but where is Sabrina? 😩
I would vote in Elesa and her. Both have the best feet in the series.
4. Cynthia (All-time Valentine!)
5. Elise (Skyla is a close 2nd)
6. Viola (Valerie a close 2nd)
@Lionyone @DanteSolablood You're all tripping up the profanity filter, it would be best to avoid that word for my sanity, thank you!
Of the guys - N
Of the lasses - the middle one
@Octane Haha, my bad!
@Octane Ok edited by comment, thank you.
Volkner is easily the best guy there. Such a bored but cute guy.
Cynthia is without equal. Strong, but incredibly pretty. And that's saying something since I'm not even into girls.
Where the hell is that sexy Kukui beast? Fine, I guess it's N then since he's kind of a hippie
Erika for suuuuure.
...or at least if she was MUCH older. Her story arc was fantastic, and her personality is so sweet!
Or cynthia. Shes hot too.
Erika , she had me from the anime.
Aww ...not as much love for the guys it seems.
@ThatNyteDaez Out of the guys list, I gotta agree with you on Volkner. I've never really been too drawn to blonde guys, but he does have a cute design I'll admit and he seems like he could be chill around someone who can kick him into gear. N is also a good choice, mainly because I love his character.
As far as the ladies go, neither of my main interests(Olivia and Winona) are on there, so Erika def gets my vote. She's adorbs.
@Lionyone I'll keep that in mind if I find myself in the U.K....?
I'm going to say Volkner too
@ThatNyteDaez @Lalivero @Mathieu_B
Volkner 4 life 😘
I always thought Cynthia was the most beautiful female in Pokemon.
Volkner and Cynthia for me. Though I almost chose Jasmine, she's just so sweet.
@KingBowser86 You do find yourself virtually in UK as Nintendo UK is a UK based website.
@Lionyone I'm not going to know every language's quirks. Additionally, Nintendo promotes their products worldwide, so expect people from other countries. I don't expect robotic language perfection from everyone I run into.
You shouldn't either, certainly not online. AND stop being offended A) on behalf of someone else and B) when there is no scenario.
Sick of everyone getting bloody confrontational with me.
Out of this list I would give chocolates to Morty and I would like to receive Chocolates from Jasmine. And yes you may know that I chose both from Gen 2, but that is not the point.
(Erika and Cynthia are great too though)
Lillie sure lol
From this list I'd love to get chocolate from flannery (had a big crush on her as a kid). If we're talking not on this list then it'd be from Misty, May (Haruka), Touko, Roxanne, or especially Olivia
Morty and Flannery are the top picks.
But Steven and Korrina are also great.
