Default Re: Pikachu over rated? Fire pokemon getting played?

Pikachu is definitely getting overrated. I mean, sure, maybe Ash has been doing non-stop training with him for two or three years, but there have been people that Ash smoked with Pikachu who've had their pokemon for 10 to 20 years. You can't tell me that those pokemon wouldn't be able to give Pikachu a good thrashing, because obviously the level 100 limit doesn't apply in the anime.

As for fire pokemon, I don't think there being ignored that much. I mean, most people have a love for Charizard, and Blaziken definitely went over well with pokemon fans. I guess that the others such as Rapidash or Ninetales maybe aren't getting the respect they deserve though...

Pikachu is extremely strong at points but never evoled becuase ash keeps him like that. Plus wouldnt pokemon get less popular with a raichu as the mascot and so. Come on pikachu is the media power........looks at avatar. Like the Got Milk Ads.

Pikachu is Pokemon's mascott and the thing Nintendo tries to hype about pokemon lol obviously they're going to overrate it and make it have supernatural powers (powers that regrettably don't transfer into gameboy packs). Lol the show is Pikachu's neo nazi propaganda.

Fire pokemon get overplayed on TV because Nintendo wants them to look "cool" and because visually (keep in mind the audience is namely 8-12 year olds) fire types tend to look cooler than, oh, grass types.

That, and if Fire types weren't used on the TV show we'd all forget they exist fire is such a bad typing to have lol.

Ignoring the circumstances in which this point was raised, it cannot be denied that I do in fact have supernatural powers and am jesus (lower case "J" please I'm not an egotist but I don't need you silly little people mispelling my name).

Wow, from reading your rant, I got a cool idea for a good screenname. Nazi Pikachu.

But yeah, I don't necessarily like fire types. They don't own like they used to.

And while Charizard and Charmander get the "spotlight", Charmeleon gets left out.

Well, about the Charmeleon thing...the base pokemon is cute, and the most evolved pokemon is strongest. That's how it is usually.

And Pikachu should be overrated in the show; it's been in the show for the whole thing, and it should get the spotlight. I do like Fire pokemon, and I feel they should add more. Then more of them can get played.
