pikachu was ashs first pokemon , pokemon made pikachu the mascot of the franchise, and pikachu just godamn pikachu he's cute loyal courageous and a good friend0
He was the protagonist.
Nintendo wanted a main representative for the Pokémon franchise way back when, and they ultimately decided on Pikachu, as they saw a huge marketing potential in it.
Twenty years later, here we are, and they were right.
They really tried to do the same with Lucario. you either like him or you don't.
Gender-neutrally appealing: marketed to both sexes
Cute: Appealing to all ages
Original 151: By default more popular
In the show: By default more popular
In the Mewtwo movie: The most popular Pokemon movie
Personality is heavily explored in the series and movie
Walking Pokemon: More screen-time=More popular
Present in every generation show
that's like asking why hello kitty is popular but not pachocco, pekkle, etc
because pikachu is the face of pokemon
By being awesome.
Cute fucking face. Brand that shit.
He was the main character and hero monster. And he was the cuteness :P
cause he weak and a major character. I personally liked charzard. But he was too strong.
apparently you have not seen the Pokemon anime...
No idea, pikachu was originally chubby
She is the main character in the story. isn't that obvious
because I was anonymous :(
Lotta feminine people out there. ;)
Pikachu was chosen by Nintendo to be the representative because of how cute it was. I think that for children, Pikachu is just the most memorable Pokemon because when they play the games, the Pokemon all just let out this ungodly shrieking and Pikachu's there with it's adorable 'Pi-ka-chuuu' thing, so... It's easier just to ignore its stats and the fact that there are better electric types anyway and focus on how cute it is.
hahaha I love this so much XD
maybe because it's the main characters pet? XD yeah, I called it pet, deal with it 😎
Because he's the companion of the main protagonist.
It's due to the anime that was made about the games.
Im going to go ahead and assume you haven't watched the anime.
idek he sucks ass, raichu is way better
Because he is shoo cute ^_^ ^_^
He so cute tho
Because he's like one of the main characters in the series
Pikachu is the main Pokemon of the protagonist..
Cuz pikachu is the main character XD
Probably because he's the one that had the most screen time out of the others.
