You know, if the species wasn’t the black sheep of Pokemon Anime, I would be so happy to see Clemont with a Porygon.

  • A man-made Pokémon created using advanced scientific means. It can move freely in cyberspace.
  • It can learn great Electric-type moves, ElectroWeb, Zap Cannon, etc. 
  • A lot of clever moves that Clemont could make use of with his ingenuity in battle, Magnet Rise, Pain Split, Wonder Room, Conversion 2. 
  • It’s as cyber, nerdy and researching scientific you can get. Flawless pick for someone like him imo.
  • It’s a good Gen 1 Pokemon if they were gonna give him another random, non-Kalos capture. 

I don’t think this is talked about enough, like yeah, sure in the first film he ‘died’ too, but there is a difference between being turned to stone in a matter of seconds, and literally freezing to death, gradually losing body function from extreme cold and oxygen starvation
