In the entry of Yellow Pikachu should be stood out the fact that it has available from start a decent STAB special move, unlike Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle who have to wait until lv 13, 9 and 15 respectively. Squirtle has Bubble at level 8, but it has half of the power than Thundershock or Water Gun. Special moves are specially(lol) useful at the start of the game because Growl is very common and against few Harden Metapods, also most of the mons that are used by trainers/wild are specially-weak. Also Electric moves from the start are very useful, except against Brock, previous trainer in the gim that can be skipped and 1-2 Hikers in Mt. Moon. Edit: I HATE start a new page.
