Plusle and Minun and learn Helping hand which they can both benefit when in a double battle. Also to note, both pokemon do have the color scheme to Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire.
Gen 4 introduced Pachirisu as the Pika mascot of that generation. Although there isn’t much to say about pachirisu, Gen 4 did introduce Wifi battles and Wifi trading thanks to the Nintendo Wifi Connection Network. Pachirisu’s color scheme even matches this!
Generation 5 introduces a “soft-reboot” into the franchise. The colors of the games Pokemon Black & White are reflected on Emolga.
Generation 6 introduced the Fairy Type which is weak to Steel and Poison and is immune to Dragon type attacks.
Dedenne is an Electric/Fairy Type!
Togedemaru is the geneneration 7 pika mascot of Pokemon Sun and Moon. It might be too early to tell but since it is Pokemon’s 20th anniversary, Togegemaru’s shape might be a homage to how Pikachu was chubby back in Gen 1.

so the basic conceit of the au is obviously that the pokémon franchise exists in the star wars universe. the clones have caught the odd holovid of the series, there’s a few cartridges of the games floating around kamino (no one really knows how they got there but the kids like ‘em)
and then pokémon GO comes out and son, it’s on like space donkey kong
it takes less than six hours for someone to figure out how to port the visuals of the app into the HUD on their buckets, and from then it spreads like a kriffing virus through the GAR
it’s not unusual to see troopers standing stock still in the corridors, bucket on and no other armor, the contrast against their black skinsuits absolutely absurd, swinging their arms around to throw pokéballs. swearing loudly when they miss
the coruscant guard all pick team valor. for like…a number of reasons. most of the time the city is entirely red gyms, and a good 45% of those are held by user Fox1010, who has somehow got his hands on a handful of each eeveelution
then the 501st, particularly torrent company, swing back into town, and while general skywalker is having private meetings with senators his men are painting the town blue. see, while the guard have access to all the city’s pokestops, the men in the field are travelling far and wide to get all the varied and rare pokés. the jedi temple gym (because of course there is one - geographically it’s technically attached to the gate of the temple) is soon presided over by an unbeatable snorlax owned by Fulcrum (none of the men can figure out who the hell it is but they’re team mystic so they consider it a win). one time rex and fox stood two feet away from eachother bouncing ownership of the 79′s gym between them and getting progressively madder
