I think Paul is overrated and Piplup is the best thing to happen to the anime. But I don't try to pass my opinions off as fact
Snivy was more popular that Oshawott was!
Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.
This is why I never I was a true fan of any of the starters from the beginning. I like other pokemon more than them because people used to make it like they were closed to legendaries. Legendaires should be more popular than all starters combined. However, I do think that Charizard and Oshawott has about the same number of fans.
Who cares about Oshawott.
Both him and Piplup were annoying, which I guess makes you think they're popular because they get in the way of everything.
Iguarantee 2 years after wotter gets oaked well still be seeing his ugly mug on all the merchandise.
Nope Piplup is :3 Other than me being slightly biased, Piplup definitely is definitely more popular than Oshy in JP. They go literally crazy over Piplup: Sing Piplup event anyone?
I swear that Piplup will appear in merchandise like 3 years after.
especially when they decide go remake DP
Piplup isn't called Moneyplup for a reason.

The response is partially because, at least in Japan. Because Piplup is that popular. Furthermore,
Spoiler:- Piplup status:
basically, in Japan Piplup is the most popular starter of all times. Except perhaps Bulbasaur and Squirtle in the late 1990s.
Oshawott is a better version of Piplup
