  3. If Pikachu wasn't the mascot, do you think Meowth could have been the one?

I know people will say that it would be Eevee, Clefairy or Jigglypuff, but I actually think Meowth is a better choice. It's not too girly, not too boyish... and its evolution doesn't rely on a gimmick.

no. It’s not exactly cute enough to be a mascot
it all comes together

Yes, Meowth is perfect. I think if the mascot wasn't Pikachu or Clefairy, Meowth had pretty high chances. It's basically the secondary protagonist Pokemon in the anime after Pikachu, even.

Good to see many people from SM pre-release again. Hi :)

Wasn't it supposed to be Clefairy?

Meowth could have been an okay mascot, but the issue is he's not as unique-looking as Pikachu is. Plus if Meowth was the mascot we likely wouldn't have had Team Rocket's sassy talking Meowth.

I'd normally say no but then again there's Yokai Watch's Jibanyan so I guess with the right adjustments Meowth could have been a decent mascot for the series.

It was. Ash's starter in the anime was actually supposed to be a Clefairy, but there was a last minute change and Pikachu was chosen instead. After that, Pikachu's popularity from the show caused it to become the mascot.
