Do you like it or not?

Whee, donuts XD Anyway, It's okay, but as you said lots of people like it since it's a very popular pokemon. I used to go crazy over it though X_X

I despise him, as the thread starter said, mainly because of his popularity, but also after seeing him countless of times on the TV, posters etc.. as though he represents Pokemon, when tbh he isn't that good.

I don't like it or hate it. There's been worse Pokemon created (TOGEPI.), but I don't entirely find it cute or something I'd rush off to catch right away (unless I wanted a Raichu badly enough). I will say, though, that I do find 00berchu in the anime to be just slightly annoying for the sole reason that it's defied the laws of the game for no apparent reason other than to favor Ash. ("AIM FOR THE HORN!")

One of the few reasons I like it a tiny bit is that evolves into a very cool pokemon,Raichu.

I love Pikachu! :O It's one of my top faves as a matter of fact. ^^; I've always liked Pikachu ever since I learned about Pokemon, it's popularity doesn't affect me. Afterall, if it wasn't Pikachu, then the idolized trademark of Pokemon would just be a different one...and everyone would probably hate that one too. XD

I don't really care about it that much. It's not the first Pokemon I'd choose though. I like Raichu better.

I love Pikachu~ People think I'm weird for liking it, but who cares. I loooove Pikachu! xD ^^;;

I have about 4 plushies and one Pika pillow.

I'm not that fond of it as a character in the show due to some of the impossible things it's managed to do. But considering I don't pay much attention to the anime anyways...

Overall, I think it's a decent pokemon. It's not one of my favorites, but I find it to be rather cute anyways - especially when compared to some other pokemon. I will say I somewhat prefer its older design (the pudgy little thing seen in first-gen game sprites, etc) over the one it has now...not sure why, it's just personal preference there.

I don't hate it but it's not a favorite character of mine. I mostly despise the huge amount of attention it gets and how it can do impossible things like Cowrie said.

He bothers me at times. It's when he battles it bothers me the most. Sometimes he beats some really strong pokemon, Dragonite for instance, and then other times he struggles with weak pokemon. It doesn't add up all the time, even if you bring the level thing into play.

Pikachu has always been my favorite Pokemon. Its what made me interested in Pokemon in the first place, and it means alot to me because of that. -^^-
Its been my favorite for almost 9 years, and that won't change anytime real soon.

XD Same with me! and I have a Pikachu keychain plushie, 3 little figurines, a Pikachu 10th Anniversay Patch and Pin. x3
Oh yes, and a about 11 different Pikachu trading cards... ^^;

Pikachu's my favorite Pokemon. X_X *shot* I'd fallen in love with it BEFORE it became ridiculously overpopular, but now that it is overpopular some of those I know seem to hate me for liking Pikachu, and a few even say they hate Pikachu and think it an ugly, annoying little rat... >_>; I was rather childish and naive when I first loved it, I guess, but I still do...I guess it's become symbolic of my good memories from when I was small.

Pikachu is a great Pokémon! At least up in my top ten favorites. I believe that I pwn you all in amount of Pikachu products, though. I mean, do you have Pikachu bedsheets?

Anyways, I love Pikachu. I always like what I like and I always will. I won't start to hate something just because the other people look down on me for it. I love Pikachu. I don't care if it's popular, or if it's a little kid favorite, or if it's uber in the show. I like it, adn dang it, that's all that matters.

I don't hate it, but I can't say I like it much either. I used to love it in the anime when it still had an attitude (especialy in the first episode when it's watching Ash's desperate attempts to catch a Pidgey =P) and when it still looked cute.
It used to be a chubby, cute little rat, but now it just looks ugly and is just a brainless drone that does whatever Ash tells it to do >D

Aim for the horn? O_O You stole my line, I have always wondered why a Thunderbolt in Rhydon's horn would take it down.

I like it, but it's started to become an unnecessary default symbol for Pokémon. I would have preferred Skitty as a symbol when Ruby and Sapphire came out.

I dont like the anime Pikachu, it gets on my nerves. Its just not your ordinary pikachu....Its like the mary sue of the anime

But the pikachu in the manga is awesome. When pikachu beat Onyx it did make logical since. Like when Pikachu used thunderbolt and aimed in side onyx mouth. That makes since

Your body maybe rock hard. But your internal organs arent. ;)

I think Pikachu is OK, but in the anime, when it wins against things it so obviously wouldn't normally...that's when it gets annoying. I was watching an episode from the Orange leagues the other day, and it won against a Dragonite. Yet in the indigo series in pokemon league, it lost against a Bellsprout by getting kicked in the head...

Its so adorable when you're fishing with it, and it pops its head out from under the bucket! -^^- I love that...

It happens. You go fishing a few times, and then talk to Pikachu. It should pop its head out from under a bucket. x3

Pikachus sprite looks nice

but when you battle with it, On the bottom it looks pixelated and deformed

awwww... Pikachu has gotta be the cutest character of them all in the show.. I can't understand why people would dislike it.. sighs. No offense to those who didn't like it

I like Pikachu! ^______^ It's so cute! <3 It's also a decent battler.
I have it on my Livejournal layout. I was thinking about changing it, but I didn't know what of. Maybe I can do another Pikachu one. XD;

I can see why people can hate it -- it's EVERYWHERE. Some people must get tired of it after 10 years. o_o;

I liked Pikachu too. Because it's my 1st favourite Electric Pokemon.

I don´t like it because is overrated, but I don´t hate it because is quite useful in SSB/SSBM/FR. So is OK

Saint of Swords
June 17th, 2006, 10:04 AM
Its overrated in the show..i mean I saw it take out rock pokémon with its thunderstrike X_X

But I find the game Pikachu to be a fairly decent pokémon.
It has nice electric attacks and good speed.
Ofcourse to keep up you have to evolve it into Raichu.

To be honest, I don't hate Pikachu AT ALL.

In fact, there's something about it that makes me want to run up to it and hug it. ^-^ Yeah, yeah, I know that it's kind of wierd coming from a teenage guy or whatever you may think.

-.-" Don't judge me.

I dont really like him he is so weak in the games

Besides Pokemon battles, I like Pikachu because he's a cute, charming character.
I also like using him in Super Smash Bros. Melee (the fighting game with all the Nintendo Characters).

Pikachu is the only Pokemon my parents seem to know. That just goes to show how popular he is compared to the other Pokemon.

Pikachu is the cutest Pokémon in the show! X3 I <3 Pikachu! Also Pikachu was the reason I started watching Pokémon back than and now. XD In the games, I always have a Pikachu in my party. Also in Super Smash Bros. and SSBM, Pikachu is a great fighter. Pikachu seems to be the most popular Pokémon of them all.

I personally don't understand why some people don't like Pikachu.

I love pikachu I like think he's one of best pokemon best there is. In fact pikachu was the first pokemon I've ever saw. In every game I have there's a pikachu/raichu on my team.
Ithink pikachu is cute,brave & charming character if pokemon was real pikachu would be the first pokemon I would want.

XD Gee... I would post some more of my own opinions about Pika...
but read his... its pretty much the same. XD
I always have a Pikachu or Raichu in my party as well. <3
And I use it most of the time in SuperSmash Bros Melee.
...Also.... I have about 10 Pikachu plushies/figures/items in my room.

Its always been my favorite Pokemon.

Pikachu's OKAY. I don't hate the thing, but I don't like him that much either.

At first, I liked him alot, but then when I realized how weak Pikachu and Raichu are, then noticed more powerful elecrtic Pokemon, I began to not like him that much anymore.

Pikachu is okay, but as soon as I level Pikachu to level 50, I make a V-line to Celadon and buy me a Thunderstone. RAICHU IS THE BOMB!!

I do like Pikachu but the hype that it is getting is a bit to much for me. To me I perfer Mew and Charizard. (Couldn't find any smilies of them ;(.

I think Pikachu is an okay pokemon because in the Yellow game it's not really good and I think it's a little girlish because lots of girls like it.

Pichu is better.

And disliking something JUST because of it's popularity is really gh3y.

I really love that red cheek cutie-pie~

Tyranita
June 24th, 2006, 11:13 PM
i dislike pikachu because of the fact its the poster pokemon for pokemon and i find ignorant people who see pikachu will judge pokemon based on this one thing. Maybe if they showed a more cool pokemon like tyranitar or i dunno charizard maybe people will accept it more for some reason. Also just to make it clear this is just based in the area where i live, attitudes might be different else where.

Pikachu is cool, but it's overrated. Raichu is 4,000x better.

Meh, I really don't care about Pikachu (It lost its cuteness in Johto and is kinda ugly in Hoenn. It was so adorable in Yellow Version and Kanto.) now, I don't hate it but I don't love it either.

But it WAS the most cutest thing in Yellow version when it popped its head out from under a bucket like ~Ahiru~ said.

I pretty much like it. Not because it's cute or anything, I like what it can do in battle. And I mean in a real battle, not killing Rhydon with it...Give it a Light Ball and watch it do what Kyogre does. Fast and deadly. It won me a couple of battles on NB. It wasted a Metagross, a Gengar and I can't remember the last pokemon. But it won the game :D
