How many episodes has she even appeared in? 8? Excadrill gets more screen time than her.
What's worse, is there was just a whole episode about electric sheep, yet Emolga got cast aside for Dragonite!
I'm really starting to think the writers don't remember Iris has one, because non-playable characters that travel with/around Ash tend to only have 3 Pokémon maximum, while Iris has 4.
