~A Grass Knot on Pikachu?

~Rapidash with Life Orb: Hypnosis/Will-o-Wisp Double Kick Flare Blitz Megahorn/*Grass Hidden Power*

To get the Hypnosis & Double Kick, Smeargle is fastest.

If you do not have a Smeargle, then use a typical Double Kicker like a Combusken or Nidorino will need to pair with a STANTLER in the Daycare center.

Swellow with Guts + Facade. Quick Attack, Pursuit, Aerial Ace, Brave Bird.
I'm not too sure about the Quick Attack. Try breeding a Pursuit into a Starly then level the offsring to Staraptor and pair it with a Taillow.

You actually only have two immunities, ground with Swellow, and Psychic with Absol and Crawdaunt. A good Close Combat user will easily kill Pika, Absol, Swellow, and Crawdaunt, especially if it's scarfed (scarf Hitmonlee comes readily to mind), and a water user will beat Rapidash and Marowak. Just because Surf is super-effective against ground-types doesn't make it a good counter. Remember, there are many of non-ground types who will carry EQ, such as Aerodactyl, who will easily kill you with most of its attacks. Pikachu's horrible defenses make it a poor choice on most teams. Just about anything can kill it with ease.

Besides... since when can Pikachu learn Surf anyway?

Timid nature
Evs:252 Speed/252 Special Attack/ 4 HP
~Thunder bolt
~Grass knot
~Hidden power ice
~Nasty Plot
You lack a true special sweeper on your team and you lack a wall.

Try maybe Steelix and Hypno as your walls they are really good in UU play.

Pikachu has to be Hardy if you use Surf, or it's illegal. Besides, Grass Knot offers coverage on the same things.
