    Had one in my team a while ago. It was pretty good. Its crazy to hate it just because of its popularity.

    I am not all that fond of Pikachu, really. The only time I every get one is to eventually evolve it into a Raichu, which I like a lot more.

    Hell yes I do, I don't get people who don't find Pikachu great(I'm talking about Surfing Pika, I know Pika sucks without surf). I don't get Raichu users too, I'd rather use Electabuzz if not for Pikachu's Light Ball effect.

    I'm pretty fond of Raichu, myself. But there are better electric types, and I usually swap him out if I'm not too lazy.

    I'm never going to use some dumb little yellow mouse that has the defensive stats of a wet noodle. Pikachu is just the dumbest most overrated thing there is.

    Pikachu can be decent with Light Ball.

    Better than Raichu, at least.

    F no, he is like so weak.
  12. Pikachu

    I use Pikachu all the time. Light Ball Volt Tackle OHKO most water types including Milotic. I once even took out a Snorlax with 2 (and Venusaur with 3). And Surfing Pikachu is very lethal with Light Ball.

    Pikachu is even on my best non-legendary single battle teams.

    Do you even play Netbattle and the like?

    Only a little in Pkmn Yellow. He was more of back-up to my lvl 90 Pidgeot. I'd rate Pikachu as so-so. He's not invincible, as they make him out. I'd rather evolve him into Raichu.;026;

    I hunted down a lightball, and will train up a pikachu with it at some point when I'm bored (or if I get assignd pika in a scramble).

    If i hear the whole "Pikachu is so overrated" thing, one more time, i am going to throw something.
    Judging by the posts in this thread, the majority of people don't use it, and if they do it's just for Raichu.
    So would you mind explaining to me, where you get the "overrated" from?
    Seeing as most people seem to think Pikachu sucks (at least game wise) that makes it underrated if anything.

    How many times do i have to explain that there's a difference between overrated and overmarketed.

    Secondly, am i the ONLY person who builds teams of pokemon that i personally like, as opposed to which is strongest?

    I honestly don't care whether Pikachu is the best electric type out there or not. I use Pikachu because i LIKE him. I don't want to breeze through my games with the most unbeatable team ever. I just want to have fun, playing with a team of pokemon that i actually like. It's more of a challenge anyways. I ALWAYS have a Pikachu in my team (whenever possible) and apart from completing the pokedex, i refuse to ever use Raichu.

    I don't have anything against Raichu (it's actually one of my favs), but i'd just prefer to use Pikachu. And i don't appreciate being looked down on because of it.

    Yeah I like Raichu too, but I prefer Pikachu over it.
