Signature Pokemon are always the highest leveled Pokemon on a key important character's team. That said, some of their teams, even six-party teams from the PWT, rub me the wrong way. I feel that a Gym Leader/Elite 4 member's signature Pokemon should be exclusive to said gym leader/Elite 4 member to encourage type diversities. For example: Agatha should be the only Ghost specialist to have a Gengar on her team, for it's her signature Pokemon. However, because Ghosts have the least common Pokemon in the series, she and the other Ghost specialists (Morty, Phoebe, Fantina, and Shauntel) are forced to share each other's signature Pokemon as fillers for more Ghost types to be included in future gens.Signature Pokemon aren't only limited to Gym leaders and Elite 4 members, but they also include villains and champions. Here is the current list of signature Pokemon per Gym Leader (some are changed if their sig Pokemon have cross-gen evolutions or to best suit them region wise and/or appearance wise):

Do you guys agree that signature Pokemon should stay exclusive to key-important NPCs?
And Mercy too.
