• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

How long did you use the Pikachu in Yellow Version?


I used Pikachu for most of the game, although I stopped relying on it around the time that I captured Thunder (Zapdos) at the Power Plant, because Pikachu just seemed sub-par by that point in the game.


Pokémon Master (Kinda)
Looking back Pikachu could be used as a decent set up with Light screen,reflect,and thunder wave.Then slap on thunder or thunderbolt and thats all you can really do.

Oh, I kept it forever! That Pikachu is my best friend!

I never even thought about replacing it. It helps that Pikachu was my first favorite Pokémon, so I've always been fond of it.


I kept Pikachu for most of the game but didn't use him in too many battles except in the gyms and Elite 4 battles where he had a type advantage.

Never played Yellow all the way through, buti I did I don't think I'd stop using Pikachu. Having him follow you was the point of the game.
