This. They almsot have the same competitive personality, (Axew's more of a baby, but whatever) I am seeing a Double battle if this ever happens against a Team Plasma. Or maybe even Shadow Triad, wherein the trio (Ash, iris, and Cilan) would team up against them.
Pikachu. They favour that mouse over anything else.
Joking aside, I think several of Ash's companion favoured more than Ash's pokemon himself. Dawn's Piplup over Buizel, Brock's Geodude (in the first series) than Pidgeot. Etc Etc.
No idea why that sweet charmender evolved to that Charizard. At some point, especially during Ash;s battle with Richie, i felt annoyed with that Charizard for sleeping.
But, no doubts, he is ash's strongest pokemon apart from Pikachu.
Yay. Paul is my favorite rival of all (with Gary following). Yes, he may be this one angry dude throughout the series, but his Pokemon were far more interesting than Gary. Plus, Gary started out to be somehow of a Gary Stu.
I think not, as there are some Pokemon patterned after inanimate objects, like robots and such. Those AI (in our world) have no genders but they can assume the look of having a gender. So I am guessing Pokemon like Porygon, Metagross, the Klink family. All are possibly artificially made, so no...
This guy is waayyyy out of his mind. I mean, his suggestions borderline on absurd. Way too bad to be included, honestly.
That would get really repetitive, won't it?
Then they also better remove the value of money IRL.
Too much story??? Almost the whole pokemon gaming society are...
