What about a Pikachu with a Light Orb?

That's what gives him a better sp. attack. Without it, he sucks in everything compared to Raichu.

Raichu can use stuff like expert belt, life orb, choice band and choice specs to outclass pikachu anyway.

Nope, life orb still isn't enough, have fun being locked into a move though.

I've always been a fan of Raichu's cry. When he comes on the field I'm like yeeeeeeeAH
Wild Charizard ran away.

I've used three Raichu's throughout all my Pokemon adventures.

I quite like him. I hope he MEGA EVOLVES!!!!!

If you're going to even bother using the Pikachu evo-line, you might as well use Pikachu. Raichu isn't too much better, honestly. It's a matter of preference, really.

But do keep in mind that you'll have as much success competitively using a Farfetch'd or Metapod.

But Light Ball Pikachu hits impressively hard with Volt Tackle. The recoil may be horrendous, but then, Pikachu isn't known to stay alive long anyways.

Ash should've evolved that s***! Literally holding back Pikachu's potential.

To be fair, Ash fails at absolutely everything.

He kept giving away pokemon, couldn't control his charizard, and couldn't evolve anything.
