Pikachu blocked the Thunder attack meant for Iris’ Dragonite and got a huge boost in power to make a “Spirit Bomb-sized” Electro-Ball. Amazing scene one of the highlights of the BW series in my book considering how Pikachu has been getting its tail handed to him on more than one occasion in Unova.
My point for the thread is to know what everyone else thinks. With the league right around the corner, do you think the writers have this event occur to make it plausible for Pikachu to suddenly kick butt in the Unova League?
Looking back at the start of this series, and no I don’t want to rant about Pikachu being de-powered losing to Snivy and because of the attack from Zekrom taking its electricity and giving it back. It reminds me of the DP series, Pikachu tying with Elekid and then kicking butt in the league holding its own with Aggron and beating Froslass. And the match with Latios was a plus as well.
I'm not saying that Pikachu will use a god-sized Electro Ball during the league (that would probably kill its opponent...). I'm thinking that it may be more powerful now and show some of that unbelievable endurance we've seen time and time again.
You think Thundurus’ attack was just a temporary thing for the TR plot or do you think that Pikachu will be a bit more powerful throughout the duration of the BW series?
