Pikachu isn't that easy. :/ Its pretty hard, only 5% chance. THe same rate as finding one with a light ball. So, a sheiny pikachu with a light ball, you would be the luckiest person on earth. :P
Well, I have had a raichu in my LeafGreen. I am doing pretty well with it. I found it as a pikachu in the Viridian forest, at level 3, and I have grown it up to level 47. ( I just beat the 8th Gym leader) And Raichu's static ability has helped me quite a bit along the way. But then again, Jolteon has Volt Absorb. But Raichu can learn Dig, which helped me A LOT. Can Jolteon learn Dig?
Yes, he can. And if you don't think he can, you can teach it to Eevee then evolve it. Walla.
BTW, that was from mudkipboi.
Anyway, I used a PIka/rai chu. They are good in the beggining, and even better for begginer trainers. Although, Jolteon, is the best in my opinion, as it can learn Double Kick, for the Ground types, and can fair well against Sabrina's gym with pin missle.
PIka and Rai are good for first times, since it gets a nice moveset, but jolteon, is just a harder thing to dela with.
But, if you want an even harder challenge, Magneton. Its not the best pokemon.
Electabuzz is good, but agian, it only has a 5% chance to find. Since you have FR, it is still 5% xD
But yeah, if your a begginer, and a animie fanatic, go for the Pika/Rai. If you want an even better mon, go for the Jolteon. :P
