Pikachu Help

#1TigerDude7Posted 7/21/2013 6:09:06 PM
Please help me get my Pikachu ready for X/Y. I followed this build from smogon and the problem is Pikachu has poor def and health, but he is a powerhouse. I can't use nasty plot due to the fact that Pikachu will die instantly, and Substitute will only block one attack and makes me feel like a fool everytime i use it. What moves should I change? Should I change EVs? Please help me and tell me what i should change regarding Pikachu. Please help.

Pikachu
Item:Light Ball (Duh)
Nature:Timid
Ability:Lightningrod (most likely will change due to new abilities in x/y)

Nasty Plot
Substitute
Thunderbolt
Hidden Power

EVs
4 Def
2Hp
252 SpA
252 Spe

Step 1: Get rid of that stupid rat

Step 2: Replace it with pretty much any other electric type pokemon

Step 3: Take note of how much better your team is now that you have stopped clinging on to that overrated rodent

I am we'll aware of Pikachu's stats and how much they suck. I just find it satisfying and a challenge to play with Pikachu, it makes the battle feel risky, and with light ball he's great! Plus he was my first pokemon ever, how can one forget their first pokemon? Give pokemon Yellow some credit. It was a great game.
