Mudkip has great chemistry with RS and ORAS Brendan, while Treecko has great chemistry with Emerald and ORAS Brendan too. But I'll go with Mudkip for <-obvious reasons.

Brendan and Treecko is the nicest visual pairing in my head, and I guess in terms of personality, I take a similar liking of the contrast as I do with Barry and Turtwig. Brendan strikes me as being very active and athletic, while Treecko likes to lounge and bask, and yet the two of them find something successful together despite their inherent differences.
