2 Pokemon. One famous due to the anime and being in almost every media, one almost forgotten about by the games and anime but more powerful. Who will win?

It's a no-contest. One Focus Punch/Brick Break/Dig/Giga Impact/Fling/Return from the bigger mouse, and the yellow rat is history.

I've always liked Pikachu. I dont like Raichu's design. Therefore, I pick Pikachu.

Raichu had the better design, and is more useful than a Pikachu (at least when I used it).

Meh, this is no contest for me. Sure Pikachu with Light Ball and Volt tackle is better but without them, Raichu is the winner here. Plus Raichu's design is more interesting than Overatedchus.

That reminds me, I think I caught a Pikachu with a Light ball at the Safari zone in Sapphire but I sold the light ball b/c I thought it was a useless item that was meant to be sold for a high price. Then when I found out that light ball teaches a hatched Pichu Volt tackle, man did I faceplamed so hard.

I voted for Pikachu because it's generally cuter and can hit hard with a light ball. Raichu would still win in a battle, though.

I always saw Pikachu as the face of the Pokemon Company and Raichu as the face of the fandom.

Like, everyone knows who Pikachu is. But Raichu? They'll think it's some sort of fan-character or its cousin or something. It's the part of pokemon that isn't popularly known, so I figure it makes a good equivalent.

Game Freak knows that, and so they give Raichu support in subtle ways. For instance, they market the flying and surfing Pikachu, but that means you ultimately can get a Raichu with such moves.

Raichu. I don't care if Pikachu is the mascot, Raichu will beat it anyway and I prefer it's design.

Pikachu is too overrated due to the Anime. In games it's very weak and Raichu is at least average so I voted Raichu.

I actually like Pichu the best out of the family. D: But no Pichu here, so I voted for Pikachu. Only 2 votes, mine and Taio's. Pikachu is so cute. D8 I don't care if he's overrated, at least he's cuter than Raichu.

Give it a thunderstone at around level 50 and Raichu is the best electric type ever. (Well my fav anyway. I'm sore some might be stronger.) Unless it shiny, I don't like shiny Raichu that much:/ (I currently have a shiny Pichu and Pikachu, and I don't intend to evolve the latter any further, of course since I have a bunch of Pichus, Pikachus and a Raichu I don't need to).

Raichu.
I have a Volt Tackle Raichu, and I used one in LeafGreen.
Plus, its face isn't being spammed everywhere, unlike Pikachu (and to a lesser exent, Pichu).

Raichu. I hate Pikachu with passion, it's horribly overrated, like Pichu.

-points to siggy-

I used to like Raichu but then it became a hipster Pokemon that everyone likes simply because they think they're making a statement about how mature they are by not liking the "popular, kiddy" Pokemon.

Pikachu doesn't suck. The marketing strategy to whore it out sucks.
