Anyone else use Pikachu in every game?

Even though the stats are technically bad? I don't battle competitively so stats don't bother me too much. It's just that my OCD dictates that Pikachu is the face of Pokemon and thus I have to use Pikachu in every game (minus Black/White 1). To be honest I've gotten quite attached to him. Just curious if anyone does the same thing.

Also a random thought, do you think it'd be a good idea to start giving us 4 starters to pick from? More variety is always good and starter Pokemon tend to have very good stats for in game use (minus Unova starters).

No, it's hip to hate Pikachu.

They called you exotic. Which is just people talk for awesome. Which you are.

If Pikachu is bigger, purple, tail a little smaller, angrier eyes and gained spikey hair.
Then yes. I use Pikachu every game.
I call it Gengar though.

Nah. And it's not that I hate it, I just see enough of it in all Pokemon-related media - I don't really need to see it on my team as well.

It's also why I could never really like Lucario as much as I wanted to - it was everywhere all the time and shoved down our throats, so I got tired of it, and it wasn't as exciting as, say, Lumineon, which I barely ever saw.

I like my Pokemon to be all different in each gen. I use Pikachu in Blue/Red/Yellow, so I don't use him in any other gen.

I don't think I have ever used a Pikachu.

Edit: And no, I haven't played Yellow.

I wish I could. Yellow changed my Pokemon experience forever. I've never been more attached to a Pokemon. I hope for a really really well thought out and well designed yellow remake in the far off future.

I have no problem with Pikachu, I've just never had a reason to use one.
