Well, try describing your favorite Pokémon to me.

Okay, so it has a yellow circle on its forehead?


(My coin is yellow)


And it has sharp claws?


(My claws are super sharp)


And its name starts with an N?


(It's me!)


What? And its body is black, with one of its ears being red?

...
......
...It's called a "Nyula".

So yeah, you can go give a vote to Nyula! (cries)

Celebrity Pokémon Fans' "I Choose You" #18: Hana-chan




It's been my favorite Pokémon ever since the first games: I love how cool looking its body shape is and how it's the fastest swimmer of them all. I wish I could make it shoot a Hyper Beam in real life.

Nyarth's Pokémon Elections Diary #18: Hibiya Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line has the 720 Pokémon Lined Up Now as Well!



Shortly after the Rayquaza-class panorama display appeared at JR Ikebukuro Station,
posters appeared at Hibiya Station as well!



They're at Hibiya Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line!
A long row of posters at the platform for Naka-Meguro-bound trains are now "Pokémon Election 720" posters!



It's incredible! There's a total of 15 posters featuring 48 Pokémon each, thus having all 720 Pokémon running in the "Pokémon Elections 720" between them!

It'd be nice if people with no idea what Pokémon to vote for were to send in a vote for a Pokémon that just happen to catch their eye on one of the posters.



Of course, it'd also be nice if they voted for me.
Don't hold back, now!!

Please give me a voooote!
