In my opinion, Pikachu and Raichu are the best Electric types of the first generation, though I like Electabuzz too, and I too think Electabuzz is better than Electivire.

Oh thank GOD we're on a new page. The last one was getting stuck for me fro some reason and IT WAS HIGHLY UNFAIR BUT NOBODY'S LISTENING TO ME BECAUSE THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES WHILE OTHERS PERISH

AND BEFORE YOU SAY ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT I JUST SAID BEING HYPOCRITICAL CONSIDER IF YOU ALSO WERE GETTING LITERALLY DESTRUCTIVE AMOUNTS OF LAG ON THE LAST PAGE.

So there's that.

Electabuzz is certainly better than it's evolution. They're both good, but yeah... Electabuzz is just that bit better...

Yeah it isn't PC for me, it is that specific page. It just gets stuck after being fully loaded for some unarceusly reason.

I like both Magmortar and Electivire equally, which is why in my PMD headcanonfanficworldthing they're on an exploration team.

Did I mention their team is antagonistic?

(also guys. Please. This is being a civilized discussion, not a race. Don't make it a race. Just because the title is "Pikachu Race" it doesn't need to be a "I can type short posts" competition.)

We are having a civilized discussion? I'm not seeing this as a competition I'm just responding to things I have a response to.

There is Pichu but other than that yeah that's it. Not many electric Pokemon haha. I love all the electric Pokemon from Johto with that said though.

ahhh I need to finish playing GoI sometime. Or rather finish the postgame stuff. But ugh being an Oshawott rather than a Pikachu.

Yeah not you Peaches, I was talking about "I'm gonna type a super short response to whatever and plug myself in just so I can lower the number before it's increased again" type posts. Not saying any names here, but people who do this WILL. KNOW.

I love like most Pokémon. I really only don't like some Kalosians, Herdier and Vanilluxe.

@Taichu
Not sure if previous post is targeted towards me. I want pikachu to reach level 100, but I need some reasons why I should start giving him/her them rare candies.
--------------------------
Gen II Electric for me is Mareep I love her. She was one of the ones I always caught, and raised to Flaafy and owned.

ehhh. it's never good to read too much into things.

I don't like Seismitoad. Not a fan of Toxicroak either. Though the latter has grew on me just a little? Not the former though oooh no. Thus why I'm sooo happy that Froakie is a frog that I really like

What, no Politoed?

Politoed is amazing. It's a bulky water with nice coverage options and now that it's been beefed up with Drizzle, it got even better. I seriously have a mighty need for a Politoed in my Crystal. But sadly, no can trade.

I looove Politoed don't get me wrong! The problem with it is that it's more like a tadpole like the rest of its line than an actual toad. At least that how I feel about it. Though if I did include it then yeah definitely. Politoed > Seismitoad and Froakie > Toxicroak.

I actually had a Politoed on my Crystal team. ♥

Yeah, Politoed>Seismitoad definitely. I'm not sure about ...probably we can safely start saying Greninja because it's almost release date day and no es fake still so... I'm not sure about Greninja>Toxicroak because I like Toxicroak kinda. It looks strange, but it has nice coverage. In fact, he has the /3perf coverage. Which makes me wonder, what IS the third Pokémon that resists /3perf coverage anyways? I couldn't for the life of me figure it out, like... It has to resist both Fighting and Dark, but it has to be Fighting to resist Dark because Steel is weak to Fighting, so Fighting/something, but what? #toolazytocheckbulbapedia #croagunkisnotanacceptedanswer

Which brings me to the idea that they should make a Fig/Gho pokémon. That'd be boss.

Politoed / Toxicroak > Seismetoed
I cannot choose my favorite frog. Sorry.. but gen III Electric
Minun Plusie Manetric were the only 3
Don't like any of them too much.
Plusle maybe? Manetric is really fast, and strong too.
don't like either of them more than mareep.

I like Plusle and Minun. And Manetric.

...

Yeaaaah I really don't dislike many Pokemon. And some I thought I've disliked I've started to warm up to them a little but not enough to actually start liking them. Toxicroak is one of 'em. And Sableye.

Seismitoad is down at the bottom though.

I have to say as the Gimmick pokemon trying to be Pikachu, every single one of them has been progressively worse than the previous. However this is why there are good Electric types in Gen I you have an Electrode, Magneton and Electabuzz as well as Pikachu/Raichu, and in later generations Magenton gets Steel Typing, in Gen II we got even more with the first Water/Electric Hybrid of a Pokemon in Lanturn and we got an early 3-Stage evolution in Ampharos.

Gen III was a bit of a let down and the only reason I haven't used a Pikachu in Hoenn is because it is so late in the game... also I don't like being forced to associate myself with the Pokemon Contests just to get something like a Pokemon or a Badge. Although we did get Manectric in that Generation but big deal, it's one Pokemon unlike the other generations which gave us variety.

Gen IV was intersting now wasn't it, pulling that Ampharos trick with Luxray and in Platinum throwing in Electivire into the mix gave it a nice touch of Power but due to there only being the two electric types (4 in platinum) were you really picking Pikachu or any of them that often?

Gen V of course brought new stuff to the table and this wasn't just Pokemon Pikachu had to compete with oh no there are others, but you had Zebstrika which is akin to Manectric. Galvantula which is kind of odd, I find it's closer to Bug Pokemon like Venomoth probably because of the 2-Stage evolution line. What else, the crazy Powerhouse named Eelektross which is nearly on par with Electivire in terms of sheer power but it gets the bonus for that Levitate, so much better than wasting one of your two types on... Flying. Lastly we have... Stunfisk, seriously does anyone know what the deal with this one it doesn't make much sense, it is an unevolved Flounder with the ability to harness Electricity yet can't handle the environment it's meant to live in, random pokemon are random...

Stunfisk is weird. Kinda powerful, but hella weird. Anyone who has stumbled upon a fanfic called "Derpédex" will know what I mean (warning don't look it up if you are offended by like anything)

Terrakion? Please. A banded Terrakion can't take an Iron Head from Cobalion or a Leaf Blade from Virizion no matter how hard you raise defense EVs on him. A scarved Terrakion locked into Rock Slide or Stone Edge has to switch out on both Cobalion and Virizion because they resist it, live and hit back hard with aforementioned attacks. Do you know why this is?

BECAUSE ALL MUSKETEERS HAVE THE SAME BASE SPEED.

(btw screw ou uu4lyfe)

Stunfisk did something no other pokémon did.

It invented Strange.

That makes so little sense I'm not even surprised but ANYWAY...

X/Y are almost here and people over at them Tubes are already making LPs of it. What do you guys think about that?
