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.
He is overrated but better tan Pikachu
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.
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.
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
Ok but it has too many evolutions now.
He is a underappreciated Pokemon
Yeah pidgeotto is a cool dude, definitely deserves it more than these gay ass eevees and chazirards
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
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
Mew is so adorable
Hell yes! New rocks!
One of the most iconic Pokemon and a great way to potrait Pokemon
I love mew
Cute, strong, and energetic! I would really like to see how the story would change if this little sexy creature was Ash's partner.
it's the cutest thing
Who doesn't love vulpix? Vul! Vulpix!
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
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
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.
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!
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...
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.
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.
