Fairly shocked pikachu isn’t at the top of Gen I and really the whole series

1: I'd guess Pikachu is like 93% at minimum

2: For better memory, people probably use a "system" such as starting at the beginning or listing the pokemon in order. Probably doesn't take too many people doing that but not finishing for some other reason to affect the results.

There is absolutely no way charmander is more memorable than pikachu. It has its own detective movie!

Charmander has it's own detective movie? Was it any good?

To be fair, the only way to get Lickitung was to trade for Slowbro on route 18, in a place you might go through once unless you know about the Lickitung (I didn't until now). It was also only available on Red and Blue versions. Newer versions might have changed this.

I think people who watched the anime would be much more likely to remember Lickitung than people who just played the video game, because it shows up a few times prominently in episodes

I remember lickitung from the sushi mini game in stadium

Lickytung was the pokemon of Jessie. Before she traded it for Wobbufet.

Source: Various quizzes on Sporcle

Tools used: Excel

Methodology/other bits: Not very complicated, just did each quiz and took the top and bottom in the stats.

What fascinates me is that the least memorable ones are quite uniform? Most of them either fall into a category of "spiny sea thing", "mushroom thing" or "thing that looks like a bell". Not quite sure if they're the least cute, but I feel there's something there...

Lickitung seems to be the only exception to this. There’s probably some psychological explanation to why these are less memorable - probably because they aren’t as cute as you said, which is due to the lack of anthropomorphism present in their designs.

As a side note, I’m surprised to see that Lickitung is the least memorable, I’d have guessed some bug type like Metapod for Gen 1.

Totally anecdotal, but I remember failing at guessing certain Pokemon due to not remembering how to spell them (I actually had to check how to spell Lickitung's name just now). When I'd fail at spelling it the first few times, I'd just decide to leave it for later to maximize my score.

Maybe the complexity of the name also has a factor?

As someone who has Chimecho as their favorite Pokémon of all time, I find this amusing

I'm surprised, I didn't even remember Larvitar existing and was surprised when it dropped in Pokémon Go.

Only reason I remember Lickitung was because of a Pokémon book I had as a kid and thought it was such a weird and funny one
