H2Whoaaaaa!

Ring the bell, sound the horns: the curtain has fallen on the Pokemon x Splatoon 3 splatfest — And now that the ink has finally dried and the result is in, we can see that Team Water has taken victory in the age-old battle of the Pokemon starter elements.

Over the past weekend, squid kids and octolings took to the messy battlefields of Splatoon 3 in order to stand up for their favorite starting Pokemon types — with playing taking up arms for Grass, Fire, and Water. Incredibly, Team Water came away with a perfect 45p score, meaning that the H2O lovin’ squaddies ultimately won out in both Open and Pro battles, as well as winning the public vote.

This is one of the cleanest (no pun intended) sweeps in recent Splatoon history, and suggests that the Pokemon x Splatoon crossover community either really, really likes Water-type Pokemon, or that they simply converted their love of the wet stuff to fantastic in-game plays.

This special splatfest was, of course, held to help promote the release of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, both of which launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 18. This event also represented the second splatfest result of the multiplayer shooter’s new era. So, if your team took a drubbing this time around, it won’t be too long before you can lock ‘n’ load for another weekend of gooey competition.

Splatoon 3 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
