Why Wasn't Pikachu in Black and White 1 & 2?

I find it quite strange seeing how it's the mascot of the series. I'm saying there's no way to obtain them in the wild.

Black and white were supposed to be a refresher from the old games. Like red and blue, it featured pokemon from just it's own gen.

Of course Red and Blue only had pokemon from their gen. When they came out, that was the ONLY gen, so they had every pokemon in existence at that time.

Because Pikachu isn't native to Unova.

It fits a rather curious pattern in the last 3 generations:

R/S/E: Pikachu & Jigglypuff, no Clefairy
D/P/Pt: Pikachu & Clefairy, no Jigglypuff
B/W/B2/W2: Clefairy & Jigglypuff, no Pikachu

I guess they really wanted to emphasize that Ash is the only trainer in the world that has a Pikachu or something.
