  • Nintendo wanted a main representative for the Pok√©mon 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.

  • 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.
