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

No - Pokemonfan10

That would be cool and make sense.

2 Eevee Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

nope - Pokemonfan10

Ok but it has too many evolutions now.

We need a cute little furry friend that evolves into cool things, not a squealing little yellow rat

Ok eevee would be a good pokemon for the book... just kidding I'm a pokemon nerd I have 230 pokemon cards and eevee Is the weakest of my book sure she has strong evoulutions but your just voting for normal eevee if you want her be my guest but we need a strong cool pokemon to lead this so think about it (I'm not trying to make you change ok)

3 Pidgeotto

He is a underappreciated Pokemon - LoboMaloso

Super duper weird dude that can transform. Normal form looks like candy. I went to niagra on the lake today.

You guys know this is junichi masudas favourite pokemon right

Lame Pokemon but very funny - LoboMaloso

7 Togepi Togepi Togepi, known in Japan as Togepy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

8 Vulpix Vulpix Vulpix, known in Japan as Rokon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Who doesn't love vulpix? Vul! Vulpix!

Cute, strong, and energetic! I would really like to see how the story would change if this little sexy creature was Ash's partner.

9 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

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 hate arceus

no - Dragoniterocks

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?

11 Lucario Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing ...read more.

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

No - DinoLover4242

Lucario is a very good spirted pokemon he should have been

It's a popular Pokemon.

They should gone with the first thought. I mean, I'd be halarious to see ash with a clefairy

14 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He IS technically recorded as the first Pokemon in the Pokedex. Eh, at least he's the mascot of Bulbapedia. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

No

24 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

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

no - Dragoniterocks

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.
