why do so many pokemon look like pikachu?

With the rodent-ness and the red cheeks and the electricity.. I liked when pikachu was unique :(

They make a new one to market each generation. And coincidentally, they all suck at doing anything except Electric-Type moves.

Because I have been sending Game Freak letters almost every day for 12 years asking them to make more Pikachu-like mons so I can make a theme team with them.

GameFreaks weird obsession with Rodents.

I like Marill because it's the least clone-y of the bunch. And then I think Pachirisu has a cool design cause of dat color scheme. I wish the others didn't exist.

And they aren't even that great with Electric moves.

Pachirisu gets Super Fang and Pickup Shenanigans, and Emolga is just as good at Flying Type moves as it is with Electric ones.

Raichu and Azumarril are all that need to exist, all the other ones could be thrown into a dark abyss never to be seen.
