Welcome back, Trainers! In this installment of Generation Preparation, we'll look over the Pikachu-like Pachirisu. Let's begin.
CATEGORY: Ele-Squirrel Pokémon
HEIGHT: 1' 04"
WEIGHT: 8.6 lbs.
MAX CP: 1110
Pachirisu is the "Pikachu clone" of the Sinnoh Region (just as Plusle and Minun are for Hoenn). It was one of Dawn's signature Pokémon in the anime. Pachirisu is also known for an amazing moment where it helped win a world championship tournament a few years ago.
PLACE IN THE META: Just as Plusle, Minun, and Pikachu, Pachirisu will not be relevant in the meta game at all. Its mediocre stats are no that of a viable attacker. You're much better off with Raikou and Zapdos.
Pachirisu is a pure Electric-type. This means it is resistant to Steel-, Electric-, and Flying-type attacks, and weak to Ground-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Pachirisu:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Pachirisu:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Pachirisu's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Pachirisu gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
