The official Pokémon site has revealed that the winner of the "Vote to Befriend a Pokémon" poll last month is, much like the first Japanese poll, the Mythical Pokémon Arceus. Arceus with their only ability Multitype will be available to those with international Pokémon Global Link accounts during the whole month of February next year: a total of 29 days.

The poll was conducted from Nov. 1 to 30 with players of non-Japanese and non-Korean Pokémon games as the main target. The poll follows that of Japan's and Korea's, of which Arceus and Rayquaza were the respective winners. Their respective movesets are as follows: Recover, Hyper Beam, Perish Song and Judgment for Arceus and Rest, Air Slash, AncientPower and Outrage. Unlike after the Japanese poll, however, the official Pokémon site has yet to release a list of the Pokémon with the highest ranks. Nevertheless, during the first few weeks, Ditto and Mew were second and third in rank, with Mudkip moving Mew to fourth later on: quite different from that of the Japanese poll.

Update:  The list of the Pokémon with the 10 highest ranks has been revealed on the 'Vote to Befriend a Pokémon' official site. It is
