Most Frequently Used Defenders In Pokémon Go

Hey guys. Many of us have hate people who just put some random Pokémon with high CP. A redditor has really done some awesome work as he researched almost a 1000 gyms worldwide to get an estimate of the Pokémon, who are mostly used as gym defenders. Here’s what he said— “As a personal project & labor of love, I looked at ~1,000 gyms worldwide over the last 3 weeks to get an estimate of the current gym meta. I then used this data to calculate a ranking of the best legendary & non-legendary gym attackers, which I’ll share on this forum later this week. He further added, “I hope you find this data as interesting as I did! I am fully aware that TSR readers have mixed feeling about the current state of gyms, and that some people enjoyed the previous gym system – so please do not take this post as an endorsement that the gym defenders are or are not true “defenders”.”
Down below is the chart that he made.
“The percent column is the chance that any given gym defender you attack will be that particular defender.”

At the end of the post he gave the information regarding how he was able to collect the data. The redditor said, “I sampled gyms in 15 countries and 35 cities in 5 continents. About 50% of the data is from the USA. I only used data from gyms with 5 or 6 defenders. I did not revisit gyms. I sampled a mix of downtown / suburban, and some rural gyms. I didn’t include Pokémon that were low CP unevolved Pokémon (think Pidgey, Rattata, Pikachu), those were 3.1% of defenders.”
