Wow, really? So cool~! I knew he was popular but not by so many that he would be considered "most popular" and I guess he is with Pikachu being his only competition.

I think Oshawott is extremely popular among young children but less popular among older people.
In other words, I think what Pokemaniac24 asks depends on point of view. From young kids point of view MAYBE Oshawott is the most popular starter in anime since Charizard, but propably not from older people's point of view.
Welcome back Charizard! I've missed you so much! <3
It all depends on your own personal preferences. For instance, i prefer Snivy and Tepig instead of Oshawott. That doesn't mean i won't use it though. But i also think about what it will look like after evolving. Serperior and Emboar look pretty awesome. But Samurott? Kinda weird if you ask me.
*yay, just evolved from Cascade trainer to Thunder trainer*
Americans dont appreciate kawaii pokemon as much as the japanese. the japanese dont appreciate badass pokemn as much as americans.
To me, Oshawott is perhaps the cutest of the starter pokemon IMO.

I'm not a Charizard fan, but I don't think anyone could be as popular as him, except for Pikachu.
So Oshawott is definitely not as popular.

Do you mean more popular than Oshawott, or Charizard?
I can definitely agree with those that say Oshawott is popular more so in the west. And I'm fine with this. The English dub serves him up as adorable, while Piplup's english dub is downright disgusting.

The sheer amount of new Oshawott products released in Japan in the last couple of months confirm that he is in high demand:
I'm not even a Charizard supporter, to be honest.
If you're talking about Japan, I guess Oshawott is more popular, being newer and all, but in America, the clear winner is Charizard.
I know everyone love oshawott, but... why? He's cool and all, but i still like some of the other starters more. Chimchar, Bulbasaur, Treecko, they were all better. Im not saying i hate him, but he's not great like everyone seems to think. Give snivy more screen time or Palpitaod, they gave oshawott loads with the whole meloetta thing, so let someone else get the spot. (he also seems to be in a lot of games pokepark 2 and the new mystery dungeon anyone.)
Iris is the star of the show now in BW2
To me, he is not the most popular Water type, wait until Ash catches a Slowking that is alone on an island who talks to himself.
