No, I didn't get rid of it, but I didn't use it throughout the whole game.

I normally think of my first pokemon as my best friend throughout the game, and its often my best pokemon. But, honestly, Pikachu was the worst! With its inability to evolve, that makes it even worse... I gave him up once I got another pokemon.
Of course there's cake!

I tried to get rid of Pikachu two times, if you count evolving it. Both times I felt horrible, because the game was based so close to the anime, and I tend to build bonds with my starters.

(Plus, I also lost the fun of leaving Pikachu on the other side of a ledge and watching it become confused.)

Didn't have Pokémon Yellow, but a friend did. He had a Pikachu that he wanted to evolve so he traded it to me and I evolved it. Then I traded it back and for some reason his game file corrupted...O.o

What kind of cruel person would get rid of a Pokemon following them! That's mean, I had to keep the little guy.

NEVAH!! I always kept my pikachu. I was already watching anime at that point, so I was trying to be like ash. (But Red is better than Ash... and Gold is better than Red)

I've always kept my Pikachu, regardless if I trained it or now.
But now, I'm doing a YouTube Rainbow Challenge, and I am uncertain if I should keep Pikachu or not. I want Ninetales. Ughhhhhh!!!

It was in the spirit of the game for me to keep Pikachu, so I did. Regardless of its sub par stats.

I've never released that Pikachu. Ever. I loved the "follow me" aspect and felt it was vital to the game itself. I was so addicted to the anime, too; I tried my best to play as Ash and acquire the same kinds of Pokemon - Starters, Butterfree, Pikachu, Pidgeot.

I honestly thought Pokemon Yellow wouldn't allow you to release it.

Unless I'm doing a challenge out of boredom(I don't do those anymore now), I keep my starter. I mean, it's your first pokemon, partner and dumping it in the PC feels so wrong especially when you end up relying on it a lot early in the game. It was really hard in Yellow to use my Pikachu because it couldn't evolve, but letting it learn Reflect, Light Screen, Double Team, and taking a risk with Thunder really helped it bit since the battle system was so limited (and glitchy) back then.

I don't think I've ever played through Yellow without Pikachu. If I didn't want to use a Pikachu I was just pick up Red or Blue xD

What type of evil person would get rid of that Pikachu...? I loved that little guy, and he definitely helped me through Yellow. I mean, without Pikachu, it's basically RGB but with 3 starters.

I dumped it in the PC 0W0
It wasnt much use to me, as its too vulnerable to almost any attack
Low def, low stats...o.o

Pikachu was literally the highlight of yellow, O_O I can't imagine playing it without pikachu.
I don't even recall him being all that weak either.

I did deposit Pikachu into the PC a few times but never released it. I couldn't do that, I never usually traded so I didn't care about the Raichu part and Pikachu could always hold his own pretty well. Not to mention one of the game's mechanics is centered around him and he's Yellow Version's mascot. I just couldn't stand to be cruel I guess.
