Yeah, I think Eevee would be good enough. I think like Pikachu has abilities a normal Pikachu doesn't, they might make it something like this Eevee switches between evolutions or something.

I've been wondering why Eevee wasn't the mascot ever since that episode where that guy refused to evolve his Eevee. It's a cute Pokémon that doesn't want to evolve (sound familiar?), but its ability to evolve into many different types of Pokémon makes it a much more appropriate mascot for the franchise than Pikachu, if you ask me.

If Pikachu didn't exist to be the main Pokemon then my second choice would have to be Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur is the first Pokemon of the whole dex, so why not have Bulbasaur be the main Pokemon?

Eevee, due to its ability to evolve to a bazillion forms would fall under a second choice too.

I've heard clefairy was supposed to be the main pokemon. Dunno I find it really ugly (one of that pokemon whose first gen sprite I like better than the later ones). Well one thing's for sure: in the eyes of the developers of the series the main pokemon has to be cute, so if neither pikachu nor clefairy would exist, I think eevee or jigglypuff would be the representing pokemon.

Eevee would of been a good mascot and in the anime it probably would of never evolved but would of been insanely powerful beating regiice latias and Dragonite

I would of liked to see Snorlax as the main Pokemon of the series, that would of been awesome! Think it could make for some funny scenes in the Anime too.

Excluding the main pokemon such as Pikachu, JigglyPuff, Clefairy, Poliwhirl, the legendaries and 3 starters, I could see:
Sandshrew being the main starter because he is a blank slate, simple in design yet cute and appealing to people.
Eevee due to popularity and ability to transform the creature into (at the time) 3 different types. This pokemon not only represents itself but 3 others all at the same time.
Nidoran(male) because he has a great character design that will appeal to both genders and also he looks pretty unique to me.

^ This is what I was going to say. That and if he was Ash's Pokemon instead of Pikachu, there could always be the running gag of Sandshrew curling up into a ball to ignore Ash...though it'd make fighting Misty pretty hard in the beginning of the series.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

Damn guy is adorable.

I miss Jame's Chimecho it was by far his best pokemon, and the episode where he left it behind was easily more depressing than bye-bye butterfree.

Eevee would be a decent choice, but it's also rather plain with its normal typing and all. Just by itself, it doesn't represent the diversity of Pokémon very well.
Marill would be a great mascot I think.
Or Jynx.
