Not all topics need to come to a concrete conclusion and be locked subsequently. Topics exist to generate discussion, and this topic can still continue to serve that purpose =)

I think that Pikachu has a lot to answer for. He sucks in-game, and whenever Pokemon is mentioned, everyone thinks of Pikachu, so they automatically think "Pokemon is a stupid kiddy game because Pikachu looks like a character from an early-morning toddler's TV show". Also, in Pokemon Yellow, Pikachu makes such an annoying noise that I turned off the sound, which I rarely do for Pokemon.

I hate Pikachu. When I hear it I feel like punching and battering it. I agree with goldenquagsire about Pikachu. I actually wish Marill would take over Pikachu's popularity, or Bagon.
In the anime Pikachu is just too far. It uses thunder on Venomoth, Machamp and GOLEM and they all faint; Impossible. Totally impossible...

Pikachu needs some explaining to do. He is one of the worst pokemon in in-game imo. (Even with light ball, opponent survives, faints in 1 shot. Believe me that's what happens)

(No offence Pikachu-fans)


I totally agree. I NEVER use Pikachu in-game or out-game, no matter what. I never have, I don't right now, and I never will. Heck, I'd rather use Electrike itself instead of any Pikachu/Raichu/Pichu.

Let's not be too harsh on poor pika, lock him in a cupboard and attach your gameboy lead to his cheeks. Laughs histerically at little yellow squirrel.

I loved him in Yellow Version, but everywhere else I hate him such as in the anime and other versions. I just think he's cool in yellow even though he's weak and can't evolve. I loved getting my favorite yellow team assembled.

{venusaur} {charizard} {blastoise} {pikachu} {alakazam} {dragonite}

He just fits in and i dunno why. He's like the water boy for the football team.

Pikachu could attack beter as a Pichu. *looks at Raichid* "Stupid rat..." I love Pichus, but when they evolve all I want to do is blow them up...Pikachu pwns in SSBM, but otherwise, he's a screaming poke-me-machine... Also in Yellow, the way he says "Pika!" When he enters a battle sounds like someone sneezed real hard. When my half-sister was playing Pokemon Stadium about 100 years ago, she had a Pikachu and a Raichu in her party. While she was battling Pikachu evolved. How I wished I could see that!

The only thing that's good about Pikachu is the fact he evolves into Raichu. Pikachu has horribly low defense and HP stats.

Hahaha! :lol: Personally, I'm a Pika-fan. It's a cute, little, fat mousey. After raising and breeding them to pika-prefection, they kinda grown on you. Plus, Pikachu are very useful if you get them in the begining of the game. Then you evolve the little rat into a bigger one!
<3 {pikachu}!!

pikachu never annoyed me for some reason,i just get him with the best possiable moves i can get,and make sure i have good pokemon to back him up. in fact on leafgreen i am training a pikachu with some other pokemon. though i was a little disapointent when i couldn't get raichu. :cry: but hey,i think pikachu has gotten a little better,i mean get him with a light ball and breed him now and get a pichu with a powerful electric attack,plus use him to annoy your opponents. though {pikachu} can be a pain,but i remember on yellow one time,gary had vaporeon and i had pikachu at like level 42 0r 43,and whup his vaporeon to china and back. :D

that is also why i like zapdos,for he is a powerful elec in rby,though i still can't remember my red team,the first team i ever had. :cry:

though i love the pic of the starters in their final forms on yellow,so cool like blastoise is about to tackle the screen or...well pikachu's pic was a little better then raichu's i think.

What fans? Everyone I know hates it, including me.

Me too. Pikachu is just a **** PKMN that has sucky stats. Ampharos in 2nd gen and Manectric in 3rd gen kicked it's ass.

Hey, I don't know what you're all talking about - when you don't want to use legends (zapdos), and you don't have Red, Pikachu is dexcellent.

Look at the alternatives -
Magneton - What movepool?
Electrode - No real movepool aside from sonic boom, t-bolt, and t-wave. Don't tell me Explosion should be on there, as it works off of a base 50 attack stat.

Pika's alternatives are much more powerful then him. Let's look at alternatives.
1. GEN
Magneton - This beast gets T-Wave, Screech, Swift, T-Bolt, Toxic and Rage. Not a superb movepool but it has enough movepool to sweep.
Electrode - Has 140 BSpd and 80 BSpl. Plus, gets Light Screen, T-Wave, T-Bolt, Explosion, Sonicboom and Substitute.
Electabuzz - T-Bolt, T-Wave, Psychic, S-Toss and godly Speed.
Jolteon - 110 BSpc and 130 BSpd and gets Pin Missile, T-Wave, T-Bolt AND this guy can Sub-Bash.
Zapdos - 125 BaseSpecial + Light Screen, T-Bolt, Drill Peck and Swift.
2. GEN
Lanturn - His stats are bad but better than Pikachu. Gets Ice Beam, T-Bolt, Flail, Toxic, Hydro Pump, Confuse Ray, Screech and HP.
Ampharos - 115 BaseSA, gets T-Bolt, T-Wave, Light Screen and FirePunch do I need to go on?
Raikou - Crunch, T-Bolt, Roar, Reflect, Quick Attack, Toxic, Thunder-Dance and HP. No need to talk bout its 115 Base SA and Speed.
3. GEN
Manectric - Crunch, T-Wave, Charge, Roar, Quick Attack, T-Bolt, Toxic and ThunderDance. Has 105 base Spd and SA.
Plusle&Minun - Yup, I agree; Pikachu is better than these guys.

2nd and 3rd - lets not even talk about this, because this is RBY.

Jolteon does have a bit, i'm sorry - Double kick could work (i didn't know it sub-bashed)

Zapdos is a legend, and some don't like to use legends.

Electabuzz - Red only. Not yellow. Thats why I said if you don't have REd,

Magneton just sucks, trust me. T-bolt, T-wave, filler, filler. Hidden power didn't exist, and sonic boom does 20 damage either way. Not good for the elites. Yes, it can support and use creech/supersonic, but no real use.

Ha, ha, ha Peanut-Lover, you can't deny that this is a pure, clean bottle of pwnage. I mean seriously. If you look at Yellow for a moment, pikachu is forced on you. The main character WANTS to get eevee, and is forced to get pika. Also, you recieve the three starters later in the game as support for him..

My opinion on Pikachu is...
OVERRATED
Used way too much
Has very low stats(There's a reason for Raichu, you know. Lt. Surge is smart)
Not cute one bit
Fat and has a lame moveset

Sorry to all pikachu lovers, but I'm not TRYING to flame you, so don't take it that way.

Kingler has spoken.

Yes. Jolteon gets Substitute, Skull Bash, Thunderbolt, Double Kick, TWave and Pin Missile in RBY. Excellent stats and moveset, especially in RBY. Alot better then Pika, especially if you are trying to counter rival's annoying Blastoise. (I always choose Charmander)

I think Pikachu kinda looks cool, but is a terrible fighter.
