Hands down Satoshi's Tsutarja. All around just a more enjoyable character who provides laughter and is very likeable at the same time. I like how she won't take crap from anybody and will also be very protective of Satoshi's Pokémon. She's kinda the Mama Bear of the group and that badass/kind combo just works.
Yeah, Ash's Snivy was using Attract before it was cool/abused and overused. She's got the badass girl attitude that's appealing and admirable, she's an effective mediator, and she won't put up with anybody's shit. And there's a lot of shit to go around in BW. Snivy's one of the few aspects of BW I genuinely enjoy, so she stands out to me. The more I think about it, the more I realize that despite the ship being hilarious, Ash's Snivy is way too good for Trip's Servine. She'd be an awesome power couple with Ash's Sceptile once she fully evolves, and goddammit writers she'd better fully evolve.
tl;dr: Ash's Snivy is cool and she knows it, so her high opinion of herself is totally justified.
Iris' Emolga is just a shameless gold-digger. The fact that her "development" outside of her clash with Snivy happens with off-screen plot magic makes her all the more unappealing. She can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk like Snivy can. That's another thing that makes Emolga inferior. She's a girl who relies on her cute looks to get by; to Snivy, the cute looks (I take a risk to say she probably comes off more as "sexy" to other Pokemon than just "cute" because of her cool, mature attitude opposed to Emolga's shallow loli appeal) are just a side-bonus to the fact that she can kick major ass to assert her authority and get what she wants. If Attract fails Snivy, it's not the end of the world for her. If Attract fails Emolga, she's usually" SHIT SHIT SHIT ABORT ABORT GAME OVER MAN GAME OVER" and uses Volt Switch to bail. Don Battle notwithstanding because that was bullshit plot convenience.
Emolga could never hope to best Snivy. Not in battle, not in appeal, and definitely not in character. I think it goes without saying Snivy's got more of a moral appeal as well, since she's merely just cool and knows it and gets what she deserves. Emolga's a con-artist who's TRYING to be cool and failing.
Snivy, without a doubt. She is my favourite character in BW, and quite possibly my favourite in the entire Anime. She's incredibly smart, tough AND cute; an amazing combination. BW Ash isn't worthy.
Whoever said there's no such thing as an evil Pokemon has clearly never met Emolga. She's far too greedy and lazy to be likable, and she completely lacks Snivy's class. Her unpredictable obedience problems make her even more annoying.

Who is this git?
Satoshi's Tsutarja is best!
The Snivy are taking over
Emolga's problem is that in terms of damaging attacks she only has two which work in one on one battles and one of them's Discharge which in the anime you have to get close up to use. However Snivy has a much better moveset and better Strategies. If it weren't for Attract and Static Emolga wouldn't have won any battles
