2 Pokemon. One famous due to the anime and being in almost every media, one almost forgotten about by the games and anime but more powerful. Who will win?
It's a no-contest. One Focus Punch/Brick Break/Dig/Giga Impact/Fling/Return from the bigger mouse, and the yellow rat is history.
Meh, this is no contest for me. Sure Pikachu with Light Ball and Volt tackle is better but without them, Raichu is the winner here. Plus Raichu's design is more interesting than Overatedchus.
That reminds me, I think I caught a Pikachu with a Light ball at the Safari zone in Sapphire but I sold the light ball b/c I thought it was a useless item that was meant to be sold for a high price. Then when I found out that light ball teaches a hatched Pichu Volt tackle, man did I faceplamed so hard.

I always saw Pikachu as the face of the Pokemon Company and Raichu as the face of the fandom.
Like, everyone knows who Pikachu is. But Raichu? They'll think it's some sort of fan-character or its cousin or something. It's the part of pokemon that isn't popularly known, so I figure it makes a good equivalent.
Game Freak knows that, and so they give Raichu support in subtle ways. For instance, they market the flying and surfing Pikachu, but that means you ultimately can get a Raichu with such moves.
Raichu. I don't care if Pikachu is the mascot, Raichu will beat it anyway and I prefer it's design.

I'll keep on moving straight ahead!
I like Pikachu a lot, but I always hold a special place in my heart for Raichu. :3 ^.^ so I voted for Raichu.
Pikachu is too overrated due to the Anime. In games it's very weak and Raichu is at least average so I voted Raichu.
I go with Raichu. Idk, Pikachu is popular but Raichu is the fighter. I like him better.
I Love Raichu *-* is my favorite electric Pokemon xd! and I hate Pikachu but the Ash's Pikachu xD
I picked Raichu because...it's pretty cool and has a better defense than pikachu
Russia never loses the game, the game loses to Russia
I actually like Pichu the best out of the family. D: But no Pichu here, so I voted for Pikachu. Only 2 votes, mine and Taio's. Pikachu is so cute. D8 I don't care if he's overrated, at least he's cuter than Raichu.
