    Seeing Pikachu win is like watching the anime. It looks fun at first but the more it happens, the boringer it gets.

    Repetition is never fun.

    Pikachu is great, every time I see Pikachu I instantly get all nostalgic and remember back to the first series I watched religiously as a kid.

    You talking about competetive play?
    1. its attack power is greater than its special attack power, but most of its attacks are special based
    2. using light ball (which is mostly the only way to make it usefull) takes the item spot, so there's no variety to boost it otherwise
    3. Lightningrod is an ability for Pikachu which is only accessable by Dream World, Static isn't that much of a use
    3. it may be faster but isn't much of a tank (so substitute is really needed)
    4. Hidden Power Ice: who the hell invests so much time to get the right typing and a good strength of this attack?
    5. even with all this combined it's only useful in NU (but rarely seen)

    Yeah, I did a little research

    So much hate on Pikachu competitively, haha. My Pikachu on my Heart Gold team never let me down in a competitive battle. You just don't know how to train your Pikachu well enough ;P

    I don't care too much either. I only owe one Pokemon capable of fighting in competetive play and even that isn't fully trained. But it hits so hard, it isn't even funny :D

    Just like Binary, I also don't care about playing competitively so to me Pikachu is pretty awesome.

    I can't decide if I'd rather play Darksiders or train my team in Pokemon White... Well, my star Pokemon needs a little bit training, though...

    Also PMD4 is being released in about a week (at least where I live). I don't know, why they did that considering that I've already watched a whole LP of the main story. xD

    As far as I've seen, Pikachu is one of the playable Pokemon, again...it makes me kinda sad.

      I'm not sad about Pikachu being a playable Pokemon. I'm sad about the immense lack of Pokemon species in the newest PMD. Even Pokemon Conquest had more Pokemon!

      Oshawott is also a playable character, so I'd be truly satisfied should I play it.

        I don't know if I'll ever buy the game. But if I do, I'll go with Axew and Pikachu.

          OMG Axew!!! <3 he's amazong in my White team! that said, I think PMD4 is just too........ 3D I suppose for me, I loved the feel of the older ones. I just feel like the bigger graphics and from what I've heard way easier gameplay is just...... too childish I think I'll stick to the older ones, cause they were awesome

          Just when you mention 3D, I wonder how X and Y are going to fair. For me anyway, I've never played XD: Gale of Darkness or the Colosseum game so this will be the first 3D Pokemon game I'll be playing, hopefully it doesn't feel to wierd.

          I tried PMD: Explorers of Time and it's pretty good, just that sometimes it's just so annoying... I also played Colosseum & XD. I wanna try out PMD: Gates of Infinity & I hope I'll get Pokemon Y.

          I was going to say, have you even played it? Because (pretty early on might I say) you can go into something called 'companion mode' and take on any requests with any Pokemon you want to be. So yeah.

          I loved the new PMD and I wish people would actually pick it up and give it a chance before judging it.

            For me, the main problem is the lack of Pokemon species. But in Pokemon Conquest, that was no big deal, because a lot of my favourites were in that game.

            Well, I'm going to by it anyway. I've watched a whole LP of it and since I like what I saw, all is good. xD

            I think I won't choose Snivy, I don't know in Pokemon White it wasn't that useful, had good defense, but thats all.
            Neither Snivy nor Pikachu, I'd rather say

            We don't get to choose our Pokemon randomly anymore?

            Eh. There are plenty of Pokemon species to me. And even if there is a lack of them it just tells you to choose to use different Pokemon for once. All the Pokemon level up whether or not they're with you on a request so none of them really fall behind/gets left at level 5 forever.

            They took out the random Pokemon generator on the beginning of the game, for some reason. Well, fine by me, since in the last PMD (Blue Rescue Team) I've played, I've restarted multiple times to get the starter I wanted (dunno which one it was, though) xD

            fine by me as well. I just picked Pikachu and Oshawott (because I liked my Water/Electric combo in Explorer of Sky) and went on my merry way. Though when I went through the game I realized that Tepig might have been a better choice.
