Default If you chose Pokémon mascot...

We all know Pikachu, the little bugger who's the poster boy/girl/rat of the Pokémon franchise as a whole. But if you got to choose the franchise mascot instead, which one would it be?

Keep in mind that it would have to be one of the first 151, obviously. And try to have a little more motivation as to why you chose the particular one then "I chose Charizard because I like it."

Personally, I would choose
It has a similar cute-factor as Pikachu, but has a better design and is ACTUALLY USEFUL.

Which one would you people choose?

Hmm.
Bulbasaur, because it's first.
Poliwhirl, because it was the first created.
Cubone, because it was one of the first revealed.
Clefairy, because it's manly and was supposed to be the first mascot.

Screw the originals, Croagunk is the new mascot.

croagunkcroagunkcroagunk

reasons:
  • it's cute and cuddly
  • it has circles on its cheeks too
  • it appeals to boys and girls
  • it has a newer, edgier attitude that kids these days go for
  • it's already on the show, they'd just need to kill ash off or something
They're going to release special Croagunk edition BluishPurple version where you and Croagunk have to save the world from Team Retro (who want to turn the world black and white, eliminate of all the post gen-II Pokemon, and nuke Hoenn). Only Croagunk actually evolves because he isn't a bitch. It will be the best selling game in 2012.

Screw the originals, Zapdos is the new mascot.

zapdoszapdoszapdos

reasons:
  • it's spiky and awesome
  • it's black and can fly
  • it appeals to green so it /must/ be awesome
  • it SQUAWKS
  • it's already on the show, they'd just need to kill articuno and moltres off or something
They're going to release special Zapdos edition YellowyBlack version where every Pokemon you get is Zapdos. All your opponents' Pokemon are Moltres because they fail. :v

It's not Croagunk's fault he came a little late to the party! :c

Because your rules stop Tropius and Croagunk from being mascots :c

In all seriousness Meowth, because Team Rocket are better than Ash, and he just seems to tick all the same boxes as Pikachu while being a lot more awesome.

Screw the originals, Snorlax is the new mascot.

snorlaxsnorlaxsnorlax

reasons:
  • it's like a teddy bear: cute, cuddly, and huggable
  • it's always sleepy
  • it's funny to watch him move
  • it has a lazier, tiredier attitude that kids these days will connect with
  • it's already on the show, they'd just need to kill all the other Pokemon off or something
They're going to release special Snorlax edition BluishBlack version where you and Snorlax have to save the world from Team Workout (who want to encourage physical activity, get you to have a healthy diet, and *gasp* destroy all videogames so that you have nothing left to do but exercise (the bastards!)). Only when you obtain Snorlax it falls on you and flattens you, so you can't do anything for the entire game. It will be the best selling game in 2012.

Just kidding.

Meowth would make for a great mascot, objectively speaking.

It's a normal type. Most mascots are known for being kinda "default".
It's cute enough to appeal to females, but still cool enough to appeal to males.
It's a cat. Cats and dogs have been proven to make good mascots.
It's got a nice design.
