On every playthrough of Yellow, I almost always kept Pikachu in my party, only depositing it a few times, to see how he would react. I liked the idea of Pikachu following me from behind in the overworld. After all, Yellow's storyline was loosely based off the anime, and what not. (I always named the playing character ASH and on my first (near-full) playthrough, spoiled Pikachu to the point where it got to level 65 by the time I faced the final gym.)

Technically you can't get rid of it, if you try to release it into the wild the game won't allow you to do so. However I always have Pikachu in my party, it just looks strange not seeing Pikachu following Red around. :V

I always keep my Pikachu when playing through Yellow Version. I feel weird if I box it. He comes in handy, so why deposit him?

I always kept it until recently. I decided to deposit it and take Zapdos instead, I wouldn't do that again though because as many stated, it's just great if Pikachu follows you, and he's the starter after all. So if I decide to start the game new, I'll keep it again.

Despite it being my least favorite Pokemon, I didn't get rid of it. Maybe because I want something following me around, lol. I like being stalked wait what?!

But yeah, I kept it...I'm too nice. I should ditch it next time I play Yellow haha.

I never finished Yellow,
but I have to say I didn't. It wasn't really useless, in fact it was useful.
The more it leveled up, the more useful it can be.
I only played the game until Blaine, yet Pikachu was useful (except against brock.).

How could I get rid of it? The whole thing that made that game special was the fact that pikachu was there following you. If I got rid of it, I'd be ruining a cool game mechanic.

I didn't get rid of it the first time I played, but then I attempted the Nuzlocke challenge and it died early on, shortly after that I game-over'ed.

I kept him, I like the unique feature of him follow you around and being able to interact with him too, I'm glad Game Freak brought that back for a few other Pokemon games :D

I enjoyed having Pikachu follow me around too much so there was never a time when I didn't have it with me.

I always kept mine and used it the whole game. It is what made Yellow so unique.

I always kept Pikachu. I don't think it clicked to me that I didn't have to keep it, in all honesty.

I never got rid of my Pikachu it wasn't my strongest but it was the one of my top five and I loved how it followed me and the cute expression it would make when you interacted with it.

I never did. Once I beat Yellow, I switched my Pikachu over to other versions and restarted my file, but I never got it ride of it prior to the hall of fame.

Yes, I bought it when I was child when I wanted to learn Japanese. (I didn't start learning Japanese for several years later)
I don't see what was so special about it, I'd rather play Japanese Blue. I might replay Pokemon Green soon however. :/

No, I never gave up my Pikachu. I never put away my starters, I always keep them in my team. I also kept it because I liked how it stalked followed you around everywhere which was pretty cool.

Pokemon Yellow was my first Pokemon game, and incidentally made Pikachu my favorite Pokemon, having one fallow me was sweet, I have no memory of getting rid of him at all. In my party 24/7!

Also, it made me get used to the idea of Pokemon fallowing me, making other games disappoint me. Oops. XD
