By "fans" I mean Pokemon fans, not general video game or Nintendo fans.
And Genwunners don't count as they would fall under general audience anyway. If you played every single game and still think Gen 1 is the best, that's one thing, but if you quit playing Pokemon and think Gen 1 is the best based on that being the only game you played that's another.
Who do you think the new Pokemon/Pokemon character would be if it was decided by Pokemon fans and NOT for the general audience/genwunners?
Obviously, for general audience and Genwunners, Pikachu, Lucario, Mewtwo, Gen 1 starters, etc. are the most well known and thus most requested.
By "Pokemon Character" I mean a trainer with an identity, like Cynthia and her Pokemon, or Hex Maniac (Trainer with a theme), and Pokemon from their respective identities. Or if you want to get random a Pokemon character fighting themselves.
Or do you think the chosen Pokemon/Pokemon character would be exactly the same as the one GameFreak and the general audience would choose?

I think it would be interesting if they added in some characters cosmetically like having Blaziken be a skin on Captain Falcon (I could see them playing similar with falcon punch= Fire punch, Falcon kick= Blaze kick, Raptor dive= sky uppercut or brave bird). Maybe Hitmonchan as a different skin for Little mac?
I also think Mewtwo needs to be brought back and Maybe add in Aggron because it has a mega evolution for a possible final smash and it would also be another bug character option.
I could also see fans wanting charizard back because of the dual mega evolutions. I do wonder how the different mega evolutions would work though. Maybe Y for Wii U and X for DS?
