Anyone who says pikachu was weak is wrong.
I didn't had any problem keeping him.
It would always send team rocket blasting off with one attack every pokemon.
And even lorelei's pokemon didn't stand a chance against pikachu if u train him to at least lv. 70.

Pikachu is kind of the entire main point of Yellow, isn't it? I mean, the redone sprites are nice and all, but the game was basically a beta-testing of the would-be Friendship System.
That said, I did try to get rid of the critter once... only to instantly put him back in my team. I was already attached to it.

Yes, I got rid of my Pikachu. Only because I thought it would be rebellious and also I'm not a fan of Pikachu so I don't really care for it.

Back in the days when I was a kid I obviously kept Pikachu. Didn't even think about getting rid of him.
The last time I played I didn't use him though. I never checked his stats, but I never thought Pikachu was a great Pokémon. It's not very interesting either.

Last time I played yellow (that was 2 years ago) I had the easiest playthrough of all time. Probably because for the majority of the game I only kept 3 Pokémon in my team. That did a huge difference.
I finished the game with this team:
Tentacruel (lvl 44)
Haunter (lvl 46)
Zapdos (lvl 57)
Dugtrio (lvl42)
Charizard (lvl 38)
Farfetch'd (lvl 36)

Actually I didn't even use Dugtrio, Charizard or Farfetch'd for the Top 4 etc. because Tentacruel, Haunter and Zapdos did everything on their own.


If I would play yellow edition again I would get rid of Pikachu at the latest after beating Misty.

I never got deposited my beloved Sparky! It tottled along behind me from pallet town all the way through the elite four, and it did a pretty good job too! I always used to feel really bad if it got poisoned or burnt cuz it's poor little face looked so sad! My fave expression it did was when it had a flowerpot on its head.

Get rid of Pikachu in Pokemon Yellow? No way, when the game came out I was in grade 5, my life was all Pokemon and Pika Pika. I kept him around, made me feel like I was playing the anime.

Why would you play Yellow as opposed to Red/Blue if you're gonna ditch Pikachu?

I did not, I was blinded by the fanboyism at the time. However I still usually have a pikachu on my team, it is a rather good electric type pokemon in my opinion.

I haven't played it in a long while, but since having Pikachu as the starter is kind of the whole point of Yellow version... no, I didn't.

I do wish they'd let you evolve it, though. Nothing against Pikachu, but I prefer Raichu, just based on design alone.

No releasing from me. Closest was when trading to GSC for a Light Ball.
(opinion) New Game > walk with perma fainted Pikachu > release Pikachu

Recall a few plays of having Pika stuffed in the PC most th time. Sounded great going in LOL.

I did temporarily trade mine to Red to evolve him into a Raichu, but I never got rid of him.

I don't get rid of all my starters, Pikachu included. I don't know why. Maybe because it was my tradition ever since to keep my starter on my team.

In one file I traded my Pikachu to my Blue Version and used a Thunder Stone to get a Raichu.

I regretted the decision for the rest of the game

I would never get rid of Pikachu nor any of the free starters back in RBY. They're pretty good Pokemon for the beginning of the game; with all that training, they become the powerhouse of my team.

The whole point behind me playing Yellow as opposed to Red or Blue was to have Pikachu from the very start of the game. (Also, easy way to get Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle.) So Pikachu stuck around and is currently the strongest member on my team.

I never put it in the box because I was afraid it would hate me, I thought Typhlosion would do the same thing in Crystal without realizing that the starters after Yellow didn't change happiness by being put in the pc. I actually stopped playing Yellow for over 10 years then realizing I didn't have a good team with Pikachu as my starter traded over a Seel and Kadabra from Crystal and those became my starters, Pikachu got pushed to the back but I kept in the party since I had some left over spots.
