    We've talked before about the science behind Fire Pokemon. Today I am turning my Theorist eye towards a different type - Electric! Throughout the series we see Pikachu zap Ash and many others with its attacks. It got me wondering - how powerful is Pikachu? Or any Electric type? Well, when you look at the science, the answer may SHOCK you!

                Please, Pikachu was actual diahreah anyways. I still can't even begin to understand how Pikachu managed to DEFEAT a Regice, and then TIE with a Latios. He's too weak and frail!

                                    mat sure is the arch-enemy of high schools and academies: within a few videos he can replace years of waste of time, trotting the same sidewalk to school and provide 100 times more competence than any teacher.

                                                          there is a mistake in this. pikachus anademy is puposely built for throwing out electricity, I mean just look at that tail. also we know that ashes pikachu can use iron tail wich means that inside of a pikachus tail there is a way to conduct electricity better than flesh and might be able to break through the airs resistance
