it's actually quite a decent pikachu comparing to the others that are available. Works well for the new Raichu, with the help it gets with the attck to hit the bench. I give it a 7/10 for decks with Raichu.
Yeah, this pikachu is playble, but problem is that he cant attack T1, and after that you always like to use Raichu to power up ur doods. But well, Pikachu will survive from Wild kick so its good to use. But Aura Sphere does and Oran berry will not help you. Still Oran berry is cool sometimes you are against some 10 hitting guy at setup. Spark looks like good but it actyally not: It need 2 Energy to use. The Weakness ja Retreat cost is common. Resistance is +. HP little low.
Modified: 6/10 It good choise in a raichu.dec but 2 energy-costing attack and a little low HP it not that perfect.
Unlimited: 2/10 Ok, but theres a better choises.
It is alright for a pika. The oran berry could be helpful early game. The resistance wont see much use. it can be OKKO by lucario's second attack. HP is average. Retreat is OK. The artwork on this card is so cool because pika looks possessed by demons, I find that cool since pikachu is usually made to be Mr. Cutie. I like the sniping aspect of its attack I am going to give it a low score for modified because Raichu isn't so great right now.
3.5/10 -for the evil pika in modified
The only good thing about this Pikachu is the artwork.
Modified 2/10. Only good for evolving them to Raichus
Artwork is really cool, can't attack T1 (Sucks) and Oran Berry isn't really goood...
Limited: Can't use
Unlimited: There is better 'Chu around there!
It's not that great for decks but the art awesome. Over all a decent Pikachu.
The Pikachu is a 7/10 in draft and a 5/10 in Modified. I would know I've been #1 in minnesota for a long time
that dang rat is back
with a 6/10
its a pikachu
it exists to evolve into raichu
Modified: 4/10 good for Raichu, 2 energy attack isn't good
Unlimited: 1/10 isn't good :/
Limited: Can not be pulled in limited
Oh yeah, this pikachu rocks, the other avaible are so weak and a pikachu mt with +10 weakness that can survive from machop and riolu is good, but the pokepower dont help raichu delta, mmm.. raichu delta.. welcome back!
modified: 8/10 (2 energy attack cost FTL)
Well, it was only a matter of time before everyone's favorite electric mouse got one of these...
Anyways, this is a decent Pikachu card. Has the old standard 50 HP for a basic, barely avoids a donk from Riolu (unless they use Plus Power), Resistence to Metal (that's kind of random) and 1 for the Retreat Cost. Its attack, Spark, is overpriced for 2 Energy, even though it damages 2 of your opponent's benched Pokemon. Of couse, you shouldn't be attacking with Pikachu regardless. What makes this interesting is the Oran Berry "attached" to it, which removes 10 damage at the end of your turn. This effect is not 1-time use, so he could be ok for stalling early on.
Modified - 7/10 (pretty good in comparison to the other Pikachu available now)
Limited - 0/10 to 8/10 (POP Promo, so cannot be used here unless you're drafting POP packs and other sets)
Unlimited - 1/10 (Who uses Pikachu/Raichu here? Seriously...)
The Oran Berry effect is good, but the damage-spreading attack is a little costly. 2.5/5.
