    I just love this card, especially for it NOT being a rare. I have built a deck for this card and it is sooo much fun. I have built a deck with him using Rotom, Lunatone, and Unown Q.

    Does anyone else have some cute combos with this card?
    what do you think of this card?

    My kid loves Pika..... What kind of deck you eyeballing with this group?

    just something simple...lil league deck.

    My pokemon line is this
    4/4 Raichu
    3 Rotom
    2 Lunatone
    2 Unown Q

    u start with a pikachu and a Lunatone, discard an energy card with Lunatone's power, then attach to pikachu, use charge and attach the discarded energy to pikachu, next turn, evolve, attach to raichu, and do 100. Retreat for a Rotom, use unown Q's power to attach to Rotom and make him have free retreat, use his attack, get the energies you discarded to raichu, next turn, retreat, attach, 100

    I am also going to make this a better version obviously, but this is the basic part of it.

    I have been thinking on something similar also using Electivire with Raichu,

    Would that be Pikachu PK?

    Actually, I am speaking of Raichu MD:thumb:

    I guessed it was Raichu MD.

    You said use charge to attach an energy to Pikachu, the only charge I can think about is on Pikachu PK, unless I missing something in you strategy.

    oh ya, I thought u were asking if it was RAICHU pk, lol. Yes it is Pikachu PK, its crazy when it works. T-2 100, then 100 every other turn until t-8-10 then it will be 100 every turn.

    Raichu Mt can also work with it. Along with Raichu PK.

    How does that work? What are you using to charge up, normal energy right? Well you add one, than another and attack, what about T8? It shouldnt change

    If only it wasn't weak to fighting it might have been decent in the non-rare professor cup.

    Weak to fighting? You worried about dohnfan?

    I know he is strong, but you out speed him and you are set.

    Ummm.... Wormadam. 7 out of Top 8 were Wormadam builds. Raichu can OHKO Wormadam even with Wormadam's resistance but it just can't compare to Wormadam it's so good in the no rare format.

    Well i beg to differ. You find a way to make it so that you out speed Wormadam, and you are set. Look Donphan has 100 hp, OHKO and how much does WOrmadam? OHKO range, if not THKO range. I think Raichu could work out just great as long as you run alot of em and you are fast.

    Weakness is nothing too be honest. This is just a fun deck, I doubt it could win anything!

    It probably can win something when Raichu Lv.X comes out.

    Except we lose Pikachu PK then, slowing down Raichu's attacks.

    Bit of a problem there :/

    HAS EVERYONE KNOWN ABOUT RAICHU X COMING OUT IN DP7? (next *** series) If not, here is the translation from the beach:

    Poke-Body: Chain Lightning
    On the turn that this Pokemon Levels Up, if it uses Voltage Shoot, afterwards it can attack 1 additional time (and only once). This Poke-Body stops working if this Pokemon is affected by a Special Condition.

    [L][L][C] Voltage Shoot: Discard 2 Lightning Energy cards from your hand, and do 80 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Pokemon (if you can’t discard, this attack fails).

    Weakness: Fighting (x2)
    Resistance: Steel (-20)
    Retreat: 0

    attacking twice in a row awesome. Use this in your deck!!!

    I like it, but Rai is right. We're going to lose PK Pikachu soon. That means T3 Raichu which isn't bad and might outspeed Empoleon so you're all right. I take it you're running TVR/Felicity's as well as Lunatone? The problem: if 1 of your Unowns is prized and is near the bottom of your deck and you can't get it... Yeah, you're screwed. But again it doesn't matter because you can potentially stall with Agility. But Gallade kills it stone dead. Maybe run 1/2 cessation crystal just in case. And Raichu Lv.X isn't coming out for about another 8 months. But Raichu Lv.X is awesome.
