    Default Do you guys prefer pikachu w/ light ball or raichu?

    Which do you prefer as far as battling goes?

    I like Pikachu just for the sake that he's the mascot. Other than that, special pikachus like the shiny Shokotan version and the ones from Yellow Forest are still able to evolve into Raichu, I think.

    Raichu. Bulkier and faster.

    He's.... He's right! I never knew that!

    Dammit anime! Don't teach us bad things!

    Aim for the horn my ass.

    Gotta love Eevee!
    I do spriting! PM me with a request. I'm still a newbie, though. Togachu (Togepi and Picu) and Primduck (My avatar, Primape and Golduck) are my best so far. I also made the Eevee artwork, so I can do that sort of thing for ya too. Just ring me! See my other sprites Here!

    Raichu is cuter.
    I use one in my main party in both Platinum and Red (In Red it is the first electric type I caught this round, but in Platinum I caught her in the Trophy Garden and replaced Luxray with her (well I changed between the two for a while) just so I could have one:B

    Pikachu @ Light Ball only has +20 Atk and +10 SpAtk. Not really what I'd call 'worth it'. Just give Raichu a Magnet, or better yet, leftovers. :P

    I wouldn't really recommend either for OU. With light ball, Pikachu has a base speed of 90, SpA of 100, Atk of 110, and defenses not worth mentioning. The attack and special attack is not bad, but there's plenty that can just outspeed it and take it out. There are also faster pokemon that have comparable base attack and special attack, and have the luxury of being able to hold another item (I'm looking at you, Infernrape..).

    Raichu has a little more bulk and a little more speed for a slight power reduction, but it's still outclassed by a lot of other pokemon.

    That's just for OU though, I can't really speak for UU.
    That's nice.

    I never play wifi cos i know i'd get my arse kicked (I like to play around and try my own stuff instead of just using tried and tested movesets)plus who has the time to ev train?

    So in my probably pointless opinion Raichu is better because a Raichu holding most items has more to offer than Pikachu and unless your clever everyone will know what your planning with Pikachu. I like the idea of Raichu with thunder, focus blast, grass knot and nasty plot/toxic holding wide lens although I doubt it'd get chance to do anything in a proper battle.

    Personally, I use Raichu because it's faster and has better base stats than Pikachu.

    I personally like to use Pikachu. The one I use is a staple among my battling Pokemon, and for good reason.

    Hmm. In Ruby I ended up evolving mine into Raichu, but in Platinum I left him as Pikachu because omg Pikachu is way cuter. :B
