I don't know, I don't think Ash is really trying not to have "scary" Pokémon. He loves all Pokémon, so I'm assuming it doesn't really matter to him. It just so happens that the creators chose for Ash to have more loveable and friendlier Pokémon so that more kids can relate to him. Kids (the younger ones, at least) prefer Pokémon that are happier / nicer / enforce the idea of friendship.

Giving Ash a Gengar isn't really producing the result of friendship, but it doesn't mean Gengar can't be a nice Pokémon. It may just be coincidence, or it may be the creator's decisions to ultimately do so.
