Are you seriously asking why a series mascot is an exception to the norm? It isn’t even a complete exception since Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle got focus, and Pokemon Yellow debuted right after, making Pikachu a starter Pokemon during the OS run itself.So, starters are the most promoted Pokemon of any given region, except when it wasn't the case? And Yamper alreday got more focus than two Galar starters.
And you’re mentioning Galar when it’s on its first series and not even 10 complete episodes have aired? We’re literally talking about Galar so it’s pretty obvious why it isn’t being used as an example.
There’s no clear cut exception to the fact that starter Pokemon usually get the most promotion as of the end of Sun/Moon. We don’t know enough about PM to determine that and Pikachu is the face of Pokemon and got turned into an “official” starter Pokemon within an year of OS release.
