Top 10 Characters That Should Be the Face of Pokemon Instead of Pikachu
The Top Ten
I disagree with this list. I'm happy with the way things are now. - Pokemonfan10
He's the face of the Trading Card games easily, anyone remember the high fetch price for the 1st Edition Charizard card from the first set?
He should only be the mascot assuming if Pikachu stops being marketable. - VioletParr89
He is overrated but better tan Pikachu - LoboMaloso
It would be unfair to the other starters to make Charizard the mascot. It might be better if Charizard wasn't a starter Pokemon; in that case, I totally agree. - whattheheckamidoing
Yes. This pokémon is cute and cool, so if Pikachu ever retired then Eevee could do just as well.
We need a cute little furry friend that evolves into cool things, not a squealing little yellow rat
Eevee is beast its best evolution is Vaporeon - peppapigdasavage
Ok but it has too many evolutions now.
He is a underappreciated Pokemon - LoboMaloso
Yeah pidgeotto is a cool dude, definitely deserves it more than these gay ass eevees and chazirards
WHY - Dragoniterocks
Super duper weird dude that can transform. Normal form looks like candy. I went to niagra on the lake today.
Lame Pokemon but very funny - LoboMaloso
You guys know this is junichi masudas favourite pokemon right
It would be funny to see ash with a togepi and it doesn't really fit in the anime then because pikachu is a mouse and meowth a cat so an egg vs a cat. The cat will win -.-
It way more cute than picachu
Cute, strong, and energetic! I would really like to see how the story would change if this little sexy creature was Ash's partner.
Who doesn't love vulpix? Vul! Vulpix!
Mew is so adorable
Hell yes! New rocks!
One of the most iconic Pokemon and a great way to potrait Pokemon
I meant mew
I am the guy who wrote that charizard would be really damn bad and I wanna say he would be great since he is God of Pokemon
Arceus is the god of Pokemon. That should surely be the face of the Pokemon franchise right?
The god of Pokemon. Enough said.
Arceus should be the main Pokemon since he's the god of Pokemon
Should be #3 or #4 (but not as an outright Pikachu replacement, but as the official secondary mascot for the latter Generations! )
Lucario is pretty much the de-facto mascot for Gen IV, which is why he's been in Smash for 3 games now (same goes for Charizard, and Mewtwo).
If we we to go by ranking on Mascots by generations:
Pikachu (worldwide mascot, basically the Mario of the series, nothing can ever replace him, except for more Pika clones).
Jigglypuff (was originally intended to be the secondary mascot in the anime and the games before being phased out in favor of Meowth (in the anime at least due to being an annoying pest), and Charizard).
Charizard (is pretty much secondary mascot in the series, very popular worldwide, if Pika stops becoming Pokemon's mascot, Zard should take his place, but that's only if Pokemon stops being marketable).
Mewtwo (pretty much the Bowser/Ganondorf of the Pokemon world, despite not owning up to that legacy, ...more - VioletParr89
Lucario is a very good spirted pokemon he should have been
It's a popular Pokemon.
HISTORY LESSON! Did you know Ash was supposed to have a Clefairy? Then all this attention would go to Clefairy
They should gone with the first thought. I mean, I'd be halarious to see ash with a clefairy
I LOVE CLEFAIRY - leepee
It's the starter nobody likes sooo
He IS technically recorded as the first Pokemon in the Pokedex. Eh, at least he's the mascot of Bulbapedia. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
First ever Pokemon designed so why not?
Well, he was the first Pokemon ever
First pocket monster
Aww u guys stole my thing! I wanted to say it was first Pokemon!
kidding? - Dragoniterocks
Are you kidding me?
You're kidding... Nosepass stinks!
Already meowth looks like he could be no. 1 Pokemon and great looks for Pokemon pictures
Come on. Meowth is the main Pokemon in the anime besides Pikachu! It's perfect!
Umm...that's a shiny...
noo - Dragoniterocks
Do u think a grandpa yeti will do?
Flop flop on the cover of a Pokemon game
Hello God of Pokemon! enough said.
ALL HAIL THE KING MAGIKARP AND QUEEN MAGIKARP!
No. Just, no.
Pre-evolution - Dragoniterocks
No just no
Mewtwo isn't technically a Pokemon since it was created in a lab so I don't think it would be a good mascot, don't get me wrong though Mewtwo is awesome
Why would mewtwo be number 1 Pokemon he's evil in most games
It's me tinned to be "The Strongest Pokémon" until Arceus came. Still, he will always be one of the strongest Pokémon out there. Therefore, he would be a good symbol to Pokémon, that's why I voted this item. Now enough talk.
Mewto sounds like a great idea. Mewto is the REAL God/Godess of Pokemon.
No. - DinoLover4242
Give it a pre-evolution that could be a mascot - Dragoniterocks
It is so amazing. - Zapreil
I don't think an eeveelution would be great for mascot
Just not strong in Melee.
Pichu is stronger and cuter than all the Pokemon ever even with all the Pokemon combinded
I wouldn't care if picture was main Pokemon because he is in dam dads doo dam dad I doo di the
What PICHU IS DAMN WEAKER THAN PIKACHU AND ARCEUS AND KYOGRE AND GROUDON AND MEW AND THE 649! (Is it 649? )
Wow,he should be at least No.5,so pikachu’s just rubbish.
Does a better job being cool and cute at the same time.
I do think that this Pokémon is epic, But he should not be the main mascot of Pokémon.
It's a pseudo legendary but not an actual legendary so I think it would be good.
Best pokemon ever - Dragoniterocks
WOOT THAT'D BE AWESOME
IT'S A SHINY STOP PUTTING SHINIES
Yes! Give it to the piece of sludge. For how dated Pokémon is going.
