    Video game characters have been sexualized seemingly ever since the first polygon was rendered onto your TV and continue to this day to prove the existence of the 34th rule of the internet. That being said, every year Pornhub compiles a list of most searched gaming characters and publishes it for the sake of science!

    This year's list looks similar to last year's but the order of the characters is different. You can notice on first sight that the list is being dominated by Overwatch and Pokemon, with Mortal Kombat, Tomb Raider and Zelda thrown into the mix. Overwatch's most searched character is D. Va and sits at first place, followed by Mercy and Tracer. Misty, Ash's first female companion, is the most searched Pokemon character with a 120% increase compared to the previous year. Not too shabby is Zelda that saw an even larger increase of 129%, likely in light of Breath of the Wild's release. But it's not all female characters that were target of humanity's curiosity. Ash was searched roughly 900.000 times, not quite enough to be the very best, but still nothing to throw a regular Pokeball at. And he comes with his trusty partner Pikachu at his side, who happens to be the last one on the list, searched about 200.000 times with a 69% increase.

    On to next year, then!

    To be fair I haven't seen many pornos, if any where Pikachu is cosplayed as an actual yellow mouse, it's typically a woman wearing a hood or some kind of Pikachu merchandise. For Ash, obviously dressed in his classic gear, so kind of a genderbending role. I don't doubt the existence of some of the weirder ones, that are more scary and accurate to the characters. That must be the Pokemon Go stench still going around, because in mid 2016, Pokemon porn parodying was inescapable, even Brazzers did it, that's when you know it went mainstream.

    I would also add, at least from my observations, there's been a massive rise in solo-made content, especially with people cosplaying as characters. D.Va is probably number one because so many women buy the damn costumes and she has an in-built audience. I'll tell you that my favorite R34 videos from last year involved Hinata, Tracer, Bulma, and Misty. Out of those characters, I know nothing about Tracer, I watched it because of the woman who cosplayed her, and after some Googling, picking up that she got the look down.

    That's Pornhub, free porn, I'm curious what the stats are for Manyvids, a veritable clip store with many fetishes covered but is less dark and seedy looking than Clips4Sale, and that's speaking literal as well, look at the difference in web design. I go on MV a lot, and most of the top girls do cosplaying porn videos, the number 1 girl pretty much only does that, so that shit is really lucrative.

    I'm surprised you didn't include Zelda in the title, considering it's much higher than Pokemon

    Oh dang, I'm guessing the articles I was looking at (as well as the table in the OP) categorize them by change in rate of searches by year, then

    No Witcher characters? I'm disappointed in the millennials.

    Still confused about the presence of Gardevoir and Pikachu in the list. Especially Gardevoir...

    Gardevoir is one of THE most sexualized Pokemon, alongside Lopunny

    Sexualized and Pokemon should never be in the same sentence. NEVER. *cries*

    No but more seriously, am I just too innocent to not understand how you can see a *insert pokemon name* and find it attractive or this is genuinely some weird and very disturbing fetish?
