Can you imagine if they actually went with Clefairy as the Pokemon mascot?

I probably won't even be here now.

Probably would've changed the whole direction of Pokemon. I doubt the series would've lasted as long as it is now.

Less boys would be playing, that's for sure.

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

already had enough ppl in high school few years ago saying it was a kid's game(they hadnt played since red and blue go figure) but that would make it a kid girl's game inb eyes of alot of ppl, at least pikachu is pretty gender neutral as far as that goes

If they went with Clefairy...

I think Ash would have won the Kanto League in 52 episodes.

Johto would be 26 episodes because of low viewership.

Pokémon would have died after Gold and Silver is released.

Ruby and Sapphire may not even happened.

We may get still get Black and White as a sort of relaunch and a 26 episode Anime with a new character.

I doubt it would've been that big of a deal. Kirby didn't have any problems with being pink or cutesy.

If you showed 60 year old grandmas Kirby and asked her what it was, I doubt most of them recognise it.

But Pikachu is different story.

Assuming the anime would have the Rude Clefairy from the pocket monsters manga? I'd love it.

Okay? That doesn't change that fact that Kirby was successful, despite being the way he is. If Clefairy stuck being the mascot like it was originally intended to be, then Clefairy would be the most recognizable, and not as many would know who Pikachu was.

Basically, switch the popularity of both Pikachu and Clefairy. That's what it would be like in an alternate universe where Clefairy stayed the mascot.
