why's this in trivia and games? this should probably be in pokemon general. I like raichu because well yeah he has the power, but pikachu's probably more popular. Oh and you spelled raichu wrong in the poll.

I'd have to go with Raichu. The tougher the better I always say...not really but I'll say that in this case.

I can't belive you chose Riachu, Jazz. I always thought Pikachu was cuter.:)

Sure, Pikachu is cuter. But I always prefere tougher Pokemon, that usually means the evolved forms. With the exeption of Executor.

Pikachu is more popular obviously, I mean, virtually everything to do with pokemon is wallpapered in pikachu.
I prefer raichu, he is one of my favourite pokemon.

Raichu's stats are all around better, though without Surf neither is really useable... ._.; It's a shame.

I like Raichu better. But Pikachu is adored by all the five years old who say Poke-ee-mon

Pikachu is the most popular, and it's my favorite of the two.

ive always perfered raichu more than the never forgetable main yellow mouse pokemon(<-pikachu).pika and rai cant learn surf in fr and lg? was that just a yellow version special since pikachu was the main poke in the game. can they still learn it through gameshark?

March 22nd, 2004, 01:45 PM
Well if your saying who do you like better, I'd pick Raichu but it's "which one is more popular?". It'll definately be Pikachu. After watching it in all the episodes it became famous and stuff and besides many people know Pikachu but doesn't know Raichu. That's probaly why it became so popular.

Legendary_Pokegirl
March 22nd, 2004, 02:13 PM
I think its Pikachu because he is in every episode of Pokemon.

Raichu has always been my #1 favorite. Ever since I first saw it on Electric Shock Showdown. Surfing Raichu kicks butt :bandit:

Oh comon, you know that Pikachu rules the Pokmon series!

I'd choose Pikachu not only for it's cuteness, coolness, and the other contest factors (it fits in with all of those catergories!) but for it's ability to learn moves! Raichu can't learn anything! Oh well... Also Pikachu can be equipped with the Light Ball, which doubles Pikachu's Sp. Atk, which can far exceed Raichu's!

F.Y.I. Through Pokmon Stadium, ANY Pikachu (except rentals) can learn Surf. Only thing is, Pikachu from the Pikachu Edition would have a bonus mini game similar to Excitebike.(ah, the good old days!) Surf is a VERY useful move!

Kairi
March 23rd, 2004, 12:52 PM
Pikachu's other stats can't compare to Raichu's. =\ And Raichu can have any move Pikachu or Pichu can, just by waiting to evolve it.

IceKitten
March 23rd, 2004, 01:29 PM
Can Pikachu learn Surf? If so I'm not evolving it yet...

Raichu can have Surf that way too. And its attack and speed is way higher. I got 2 words for Pikachu. Double Edge! :P

Of course Pichu is much cuter than either of them, and would dominated if it was on the poll. *Pichu obsessed fan*

u cant be wrong there, pichu would take over the poll, but ill still vote for raichu.(the "vote" thing is starting to sound like a presidention election :laugh: ).

Pichu would have more votes than both of them put together!

Pichu rules!!!

Who can't love the little fuzzball?!?!

I'd be a Pichu if I could (read the thread 'What would you do if you were a Pokmon, and which one would you be?')

Pikachu is more popular then Raichu, but I personally prefer Raichu. I think he looks better and he is more powerful, also has a better battle cry if you ask me :)

The Pokemaster
March 25th, 2004, 01:20 AM
neither, Pikachus is an over-hyped pokemon that is no-where near as strong as shows and movies make it out to be, and is actually, quite useless without all the super powering (giving it the ability to learn Iron tail AND stupid surf, whos idiot idea was THAT?) that nintendo decide to give it, and Raichu really isnt that much better, it IS better, just not by much, and pichu...oh, im just not going to say anything, just to save time.

March 25th, 2004, 06:38 AM
Hey, this is just a poll for popularity, not power!

Pichu rules all your Feebas minds!

Pikachu has always been more popular than Raichu, and all Pokemon. I like both of them equally the same much. Pikachu is cute, and Raichu is strong. I have a Raichu on my team in Ruby. :P

woohoo! pika's leading 18-15!

i voted for pikachu anyway, because it's cute and it's popular. even people who hate pokemon and say "Meowlith" instead of "Meowth" know who Pikachu is and say it right.

April 6th, 2004, 10:37 PM
I've always been a Raichu fan. However, Pikachu is more popular, simply because it has more exposure (being main Pokemon in the TV series). Here's an example: My dad bought me a Raichu figurine in Japan. He apologized because they had run out of Pikachu. But I told him I like Raichu better anyway, so that was all great! XD

April 7th, 2004, 05:54 AM
Wow. o_o; Pikachu is pretty famous through the shows, the special Game. (Yellow edition) Some People do not know what Pokemon are but know what a Pikachu is. XD Except for my uncle.

Raichu is also popular through Pikachu by evolution. Power. A few shows...>_>;

So Pikachu is the popular one of all. >:] I choose the Pikachu.

[I beat the whole Elite Four in the Jotho and Kanto games with its sidekicks Articuno and Suicune. ]

I had a Riachu for a LOOONG time. They rock. Especialy moves like spark. Thunder also seems more acurate with Riachus

April 24th, 2004, 05:38 PM
I'll have to vote on Pikachu for this one... it was the first Pokemon I simply adored and yes, I was always saying "Pika, Pikachu!" to my brother when I was younger... sometimes he'd do that same... how embarassing.... o_O

Me and my pikachu! Not Riachu. PIKACHU IS THE BEST!!!

I think Pikachu is better. I like Raichu and all but Pikachu is just better. It was the first Pokemon I knew. Pikachu is still one of my favorites and I think it's very cute.

i know riachus 10000 times strong (exaggerated, i know) yet publictity wise would have t go to pikachu, he gets all the attention in the TV show and hes just so affiliated with ash, the main character.

Aj1
April 24th, 2004, 06:24 PM
raichu is stronger but with the help of pikachu..

the pikachu must learn the electric attack so after raichu can use them when that pikachu evolves..

but raichu can use physical attacks like mega punch and mega kick for that gives it and advantage....

so i choose raichu

Jirachi
April 26th, 2004, 03:59 AM
Raichu. I just hate Pikachu.

Pikaki
April 26th, 2004, 04:45 AM
I say Pikachu.
My own kind,Pikachu,is best!
I don't agree,Pikaki and Maria.I say Raichu.
PS:My real name is Maria.Pikaki is really a boy,but why my profile says I'm a female because my characters aren't.

icer
April 26th, 2004, 05:48 AM
I think Pikachu is more popular due to marketing campaigns and subsequent pika-saturation
But I love Raichu the best. I like Pikachu, but after he learns all his moves it's definitely thunderstone time.... Raichu is cuter too.

April 26th, 2004, 07:12 AM
Raichu....He wasn't in Pokemon Channel, which I pluncked down 30 BUCKS for... :king:

On the bright side, EITHER of them would be a better Governor of California than ANYONE in the recall election... :laugh: or, for that matter, a better president than ol' Dubya.... :laugh: :laugh:
