What Pokemon should people have gotten/had?
This thread is dedicated to the discussion of what Pokemon a member of the main cast should have. Basically, you name a character, then a Pokemon, and explain your reasons for having that Pokemon.
This is not like the Next Pokemon thread, because there, you discuss someone may catch. Here, we accept that someone won't catch a certain Pokemon, no matter how much we wish they would.
To show you how it's done, I'll say Dawn should have caught a female Snorunt and evolve it into Froslass because Froslass is graceful and elegant, something Dawn could have used in Contests.
Please stop complaining about Pikachu losing to "weak" Pokemon at the start of each new region. Its power is drained at the start of each new region, and anyway, it's equally bad storytelling for Pikachu to plow through all of its opponents.
