Haha thanks. All you had to do in yellow was trade pikachu, and he would be gone :) That's what i did anyway, so annoying the way he followed you round. I don't understand the love for pikachu anyway. Just because he was Ash's main buddy; to be frank, he was even more annoying on the TV Series :P Charizard all the way.

Memories... I have to say I loved your little comments and ratings. Really good - and funny!

On the Pikachu debate, I had Pokemon Yellow and had it follow me around all the time. was good, although my character was either a midget or Pikachu was one big chap.

I couldn't use the Thunderstone on him either (mainly because the game wouldn't let you). I couldn't even get another one as they weren't found in the game.

However, when I think of Pikachu now, all I remember is Ant and Dec rubbing the pikachus on their jumpers! Now very disturbing!

I am very inclined to agree i love Pikachu aswell and i would more than likely be tempted to have a Raichu in there aswell as they are both cool, but i think Pika all the way.

I am also a fan of Charmander!
Think i may have to get the earlier ones and play them again! May try download them later i think.

Pikachu will always be my favourite. Although the most used in the cartoon show, there was something about Pikachu I always liked. And in Pokémon Yellow he had the ability to surf which made him very strong against rock types.

I would never use the thunderstone on my Pikachu...
