Emolga is decent if for it's typing alone. The rest are pretty awful though.

Dedenne has usable speed, but I don't have any clue if it's usable or not.

Marril/Azumarril are not part of the Pikaclone family; the only similarity they have is that they are cute rodents, they lack the Electric typing and pouches on their cheeks. Johto's "Pikachu" was Pichu.

Asking any questions of GameFreak's design choices is just silly.

dedenne has one of the most barren movepool of all pokemon


I don't mind pika clones if they weren't complete waste of dex slots. I like azumaril for example. But some gfreak employees need to get fired for all the useless-clones that came after.

I feel like azumaril was an attempt at making a decent pokemon but all the clones after were just marketing .

I love Minun. Plusle is ok. I love Emolga too. I like Pachirisu too, though wish it was at least somewhat usable.

Dedenne I have no interest in. It just looks like a little Raichu. It doesn't even have any special gimmick other than "fairy type yay!"

GF were clearly thinking about pikachu when they made it, it is the pikachu expy for gen 2, even if not a pika clone, which is nothing but a fan term anyway.

I'm looking at it now and...yikes... Am I reading this right? Does it really not have ANY Special Fairy STABs!?
