In hindsight why pick Lucario, Jigglypuff, Pikachu, Pichu, Squirtle?

Where's Raichu? geesh its the highest evolved form! They went backwards

I think some streamlining is needed.

Raichu was never iconic. Pichu kind of was in one of those Pikachu movies preceding an actual movie.
We've got the right, 'cause they'll fight to use it. Got everything, and you can just choose it. I won't just be a puppet on a string.

Sakurai wanted a joke character, so Jigglypuff was put in. (She also reused some resources from Kirby).
After Jigglypuff was seen as being fair competitive Pichu was put in, while also representing Gen II and Baby Pokemon.

Lucario was a fan favorite and could make an interesting move set.

Actually, the man-puff is very popular in Japan. That's how it made it into the first smash.

Yes. It is.
Sakurai said this much in Pichu's character page for the Japanese Melee website.

It was a little bit of both, he wanted a joke character, and Jigglypuff was well liked.

I want to say they also picked Jigglypuff because they could have used resources from Kirby on it, but I have no source for it.
It makes some sense considering she got in over Bowser/Dedede/Peach/Mewtwo.

Who cares about iconic? Raichu was the best option between the 3.

He said "the weakest". I still don't consider that to be a joke character.

Whether you do or don't, a deliberately weak character is a joke character.
It's something that cannot be argued.
