I think pikachu is cool but there are so many others who would do as a better mascot. Charmander, larvitar, togepi being a few examples.

I have no problem with Pikachu as the mascot, but its base stats should've been higher.

Togepi and Larvitar weren't until the second generation. As for Charmander if that happened we likely wouldn't have gotten a Yellow version since there was already Red version.

I think they picked a good choice as the mascot but of course people will always be around to disagree.

As far as I have heard, Larvitar existed in gen one but was excluded of the games, because of insufficient free space on the cardridges. So its existence was delayed till second gen.

So are talking about Ash's Pikachu or Pikachu as a species?

If we where talking about Ash's Pikachu i'd say something along the lines of:
"Pikachu with Ash is sort of the epitome of Pokemon forming bonds with their trainers."

I actually love the bond between Ash & Pikachu. It's probably the strongest friendship in the whole anime, I love it.

The bond between Ash and Pikachu. It's like the bond between that characterless representive of the Pokemon games and that overrated Pokemon which only purpose is to represent the Pokemon.

So it's more the bond between two clichees

I don't think, high numbers are good for Pikachu. So let's do our best, to get the number down

Sigh I really wish people would bring in legitimate reasons rather than 'Ash is stupid, Pikachu is stupid' etc.

Unfortunately that's true.

I think, a new mascot would be better, though. Pikachu is one Pokemon of the first gen and since that time, the number of Pokemon drastically increased. Considering this number (which hasn't stoped increasing) and thus the way Nintendo is going it'd be great if they chose to change the mascot in every generation.

I mean let's face the truth: all people who grew up with the first gen don't like the new seasons (of the anime) and since Nintendo wants to get new fans among the kids they should change the representing Pokemon depending on every gen.

Pikachu is nothing more than a remaining of gen one and the first season of the anime.

I don't think Nintendo would ever do that though. They like to stick with the same mascot 5ever.

is it safe to say that if nintendo or whoever makes the anime chose to use someone else as Ash's main companion the haters would be hatin on it instead

Well haters gonna hate. At least there would be some variety. Also it would make a little more sense than Pikachu getting weak again in every new season.
