Charizardvsbowser

Charizard's upset of Bowser in '10 was the Most Surprising Result in 1v1 history

The Most Surprising Results in GameFAQs Contest history, based on what percentage of brackets site-wide expected them to occur.

Special Note: All 2007, 2008, and 2009 stats are based solely on how many brackets picked a character to advance, not how many had them to advance in the correct position, because SB's failure to explain the bracket more clearly resulted in nearly 50% of pickers not realizing that order mattered.
