Pikachu has been essentially been the face of Pokémon since the very beginning and one of the most loved Pokémon, so it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that a lot of the Pokémon GO players in the United States would want to catch one but when 5 states want a Pikachu above all other Pokémon, now that’s something.
It is thanks to Decluttr we get this information, by taking various phrases such as “how to…” and “where is…” from Google searches and matched them to the Pokémon currently available in Pokémon GO and “measured the volume of searches in each state.” And now that the findings are all in, Decluttr posted such details and photos, which you can see in full right here, or simply scroll down:
So after Pikachu, America’s 2nd most desired Pokémon is Eevee, which most likely due to everyone wanting to evolve it to get all three evolved forms. Next in popularity is Ditto then Mew, who is also joined by Squirtle, Charizard and Abra. But this is just the United States of America, it would be interesting to see how the rest of the world compares.
