I don't know how I got the two mixed up, but yeah, everything I said applies to Emolga. I definitely do think Pachirisu is cute though, but I can't say much for its anime personality, since I didn't watch that much of the Sinnoh seasons. All I really know is that it loves puffins to death.
On the topic of starters, I completely forgot about Snivy. I agree that it doesn't reallyy appear to have any cute characteristics, and Ash's Snivy is a bit of a snob. I just never really liked it :(
