I never got rid of him. I would always trade him to my red or blue, evolve him, and trade him back to Yellow. He doesn't follow you at that point though.

Of course I kept him!! It was the only Pokemon that I would keep as a part of my party that was intentionally unevolved. I thought he added a certain flare and the little pictures when you talked to him were just so adorable!! *o*

For me, Yellow was an excuse to use Pikachu as it would be as if I was simply playing Red or Blue without all the extra Pika-features! Pikachu was actually good addition to my team because it was one of the most decent Electric-types available throughout the game. Plus, I don't really give a damn how technically strong a Pokémon is.

I don't, I just use him and the three starters and although I don't like Blastoise/Charizard, I think they're fun to use in the first generation.

I got curious when I was younger and tried to get rid of Pikachu in Yellow two different ways. One being to release it via PC Box, and two, using a Thunder Stone to evolve into Raichu. Neither attempts worked. I think Game Freak programmed the game so that it is impossible (without hacking) to throw out Pikachu.

Pikachu was my favorite feature in that game. There's no way I'm playing without him.

I loved Pikachu in that game. Having it follow me around was cool, and I also thought it gained a special boost in yellow for some reason. Anyway, Pikachu was a must for me in that game, and I intend to keep him if I ever play through Yellow again.

I kinda felt obliged to keep mine. I'd have felt dirty if I released it.

Nope, it was my excuse to be Ash. After that first run through yeah, he might have magically vanished the moment I got Jolteon or something else evolved, but he was the reason I got the game in the first place...

@ThatIceMan and KarosNB: Wow, you don't like Pokemon. :p Your just like Silver (game) from HG,SS,S,G,C you only want to win and that's all. So, It's weak, for you, but he was the reason I had the 6th badge (Sabrina). Sabrina completely KO'ed my team when I was in the middle of Yellow, Venusaur,Charizard,Watortle and guess who KO'ed her? Pikachu, so no, I didn't release or put him in PC. You can put him in PC, but calling him weak? (Magikarp may be weak at first, but when he evolves, you'll regret what you said.)

@EVERYONE (Not everyone but some): Haha, guys. That's a game, so It's basically Red not Ash . But something interesting in Yellow is that you CAN be Ash, catch his Pokemons and all. Something good in Yellow too is that they put Jesse and James.

I always kept Pikachu. I didn't want it to be misguided or unloved.

Me and my friend had this genius idea to trade each others Pikachus to each other, evolve it and trade it back. We felt stupid when it wouldn't follow us around anymore... So i guess in a way I did get rid of it.

Nope never did. Whenever I played Yellow, I felt like Ash and so I thought it was wrong to ditch Pikachu and felt obligated to keep it with me the whole time.

Nope, I kept Pikachu! It was pretty cool to me how he would follow me around and let me interact with him, plus sending him into battle without a Pokeball was awesome when I was 9. As often as he fainted I still found it worthwhile to keep him. <3;

Exact same reason why I never got rid of mine. It's Yellow version after all.

I always use my starter Pokemon no matter what so I never had an urge to get rid of Pikachu.

It never was the focal point of my team though, since I had the other starters and Mew on my team.

Kind of a two fold reasoning here:
1: I always keep my starters. ALWAYS.
2: It just seemed wrong in a game that had a main difference of letting you have Pikachu as a starter and follow you around to just get rid of him. Nope, I let him be a valuable asset to my team.

No. If I didn't want Pikachu on my team I would have played Blue or Red instead. But I kept Pikachu on my team in the time I did play some Yellow. Considering picking it up again sometime and maybe actually finish the game.

No matter how over-leveled it had to be to kill anything, I kept it just because it's the mascot of Pokemon Yellow.. it wouldn't really be Pokemon Yellow without the little guy following you everywhere.

Pikachu is great, but his defensive stats can be a burden. Annoying you can't evolve him, but it's understandable. I always use him though.

Hmm.. At that time I don't know Pokemon's stat difference lol.. So leaving my Pikachus behind is a nono. As for the topic's subject, my Sister and I traded Pikachu to Crystal? or Blue?.. I don't remember.. But After I got Pikachu back, it became angry >:o
