It's been a very long time since I started my adventure with a pikachu. Since gen one. Pikachu fills me with nostalgia from yellow. Yellow will always be my all time favorite. (Pikachu and all three starters, how epic) but anyway, I'd love to start my adventure with a pikachu by my side. At least early on ish. Do you think it's possible? Pikachu will always be my favorite little underdog =3
I found a picture on the X and Y website of the player with a ThunderStone trying to evolve a Pikachu. The player also had a Froakie and Fletchling,so I imagine that they're available pretty early.
