Did you get rid of your Pikachu in Yellow?
Yeah, just like the thread title says, did you get rid of your Pikachu in Yellow version? Which was a gift from Prof. Oak. Did you get rid of it because it was not really good or you trained it and it is in your team?

Personally, I did not get rid of it and its in my team because I always have a special feeling with the starters.

No, I didn't but it wasn't my strongest Pokemon and it certainly didn't get prioritising. Alakazam was my stronghold.

Katamari December 16th, 2012 10:04 AM

I never get rid of my starters and Pikachu was included. The biggest part of Yellow Version was Pikachu's "follow me" feature too, which was another reason! It does kind of suck how you can't evolve it, but I never had a problem beating the game with it.

Sassy Milkshake December 16th, 2012 10:38 AM

That was the game where I really went all out to be Ash. So I kept Pikachu, trained the 3 starters and caught myself a Snorlax and a Muk. I felt so special. But yeah I kept Pikachu.

Talli December 16th, 2012 10:58 AM

my sister stole it, evolved it and put it back on I put it in the pc as something happened to it.

vaporeon7 December 17th, 2012 2:52 AM

I didn't. I decided to be like Ash and use the starters as well as a Snorlax and Lapras.

Synerjee December 17th, 2012 6:10 AM

I kept the Pikachu. I always keep my starter no matter what, and that Pikachu wasn't an exception. To me, ditching Pokemon I trained for such a long time seems cruel and a waste. Oh, and I always develop bonds with the Pokemon I train, especially my starters.

Get Weird December 17th, 2012 8:24 AM

I remember during one of my run through's of Yellow that I got rid of Pikachu because the Nidoran I was training at the time was simply so much better. But then half way through I regretted it and brought him back in. Since then I guess I've never replaced him. :D

Correspondence December 17th, 2012 8:58 AM

I kept it because i really never abandon my starter.Also its the only pokemon that had the 'follow me' feature so it also made me keep it.

On a side note:Yay for 300th post!

Sarah Morgan December 17th, 2012 9:07 AM

I always put Pikachu away lol.

~*!*~Tatsujin Gosuto~*!*~ December 17th, 2012 11:23 AM

As much as I don't like Pikachu, I never got rid of it in my party because I never get rid of my starter Pokemon during in game playing. I also kept it because I liked the idea that Pikachu followed me and I found that to be cute.


Turboblaze December 17th, 2012 12:50 PM

I've done it once before but due to the lack of decent electric Pokemon, I kinda screwed myself.

macboycolor December 21st, 2012 6:00 AM

I didn't and i noticed with trading if you get another pikachu that one will follow you too. But only one at a time.

Brendino December 21st, 2012 8:29 PM

I kept it around until I was able to get Zapdos, and then it just sat in the box after that. Even back then I didn't much care for Electric-types, so I saw no use keeping two on my team, when Zapdos was clearly stronger.

Blue December 22nd, 2012 1:25 PM

Not when I played it, I probably would now however.

giradialkia December 22nd, 2012 6:09 PM

Oh, absolutely not. I've only ever had one serious playthrough of Yellow, and in it I had the baddest-ass and most clichéd team possible. (for some reason I deleted it, started again, and never finished. :( )
If I were to play through it again today, I'd still use the Pikachu. That's literally all Yellow has going for it, otherwise. :P

I approve of this message.

But seriously, I didn't even know it was an option. However, for me, Yellow was the pretend to be Ash game, and like a few other people here, I mimicked his team that he had at the time (AND the moves, which were usually all weak attacks). Let's just say it wasn't a very efficient team.

I always liked how you could see his moods. I've read a newer Pokemon game lets Pokemon follow you outside the ball, but does it let you see their moods? Or is that simply too many sprites they'd have to create?

Kotowari December 23rd, 2012 5:49 AM

HG/SS let you see the mood of the pokémon with a text baloon popping up above their heads showing their expression (like a heart, or a happy/sad face) and in the text box on the bottom of the screen it tells you more about the Pokémon (action or expression).

But anyways, I didn't deposit Pikachu, or at least not for very long. Whenever I put it back into my team, it was annoyed/angry with me and that made me feel very bad. :<

ThatIceman December 23rd, 2012 5:57 AM

yes i did get rid of my pikachu reason : it was WEAK O-0 and i hate weak pokemons O_O

KarosNB December 25th, 2012 4:19 PM

Nah, just let it sit in the box, like ThatIceman said, it was weak.

pikakitten December 26th, 2012 2:49 AM

Sure he's weak but here's quote many of you might love
"Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites." Karen of Johto's Elite Four
I never forget this when I play, I don't go all crazy even though I am sort of a competitive battler, when I had Pikachu (which I still did use all of Yellow 2 times) I still destroyed everyone using mostly Pikachu. He was so cute and whether you like it or not, strong.

PikakittenX, Pika(kitten) for a reason

metal64meli December 26th, 2012 12:44 PM

I traded it to Blue and evolved to Raichu and traded back to yellow, I hated the fact I couldn't evolve that pikachu :B

PhoenixWright77 December 26th, 2012 3:07 PM

I never liked Pikachu so I just stuffed him into my PC Box! Never to be seen or loved ever again! :laugh:

DelightedTurk December 26th, 2012 4:47 PM

How could I have boxed that cute little electric mouse? It was just so fun to have it follow you everywhere, and despite it being weaker than my incredible Nidoqueen, it was still my second most used. Now that I think of it, I'd love a Yellow remake so much!

rikdegraaff December 28th, 2012 11:34 PM

I kept Pikachu always in my team.
The only thing I never understood, was why it never wanted to evolve to a Raichu...

That last thing was a bigdissapointment.
