• its really funny how like, pikachu has been the obvious moneymaker for
pokemon throughout its history, and they've tried to replicate this without
success ever since. trying each gen to hit on that perfect mascot formula

    • To be fair, Mimikyu isn't a Pikachu rip-off. It's a Fairy-Ghost where Pikachu rip-offs are electric types. It wants to be loved, so it dresses up like the most popular Pokemon in existence.

    • To be fair the Pikachu "clones" are put in as a way of showing what's new in the games. So Pikachu is the original. Then Pichu is added with babies. Minun and plusl are there for team battles and pachirishu(idk how to spell it) has the wifi symbol on its back for wifi battles.

    • So, if my recollection serves me right, back in the days of Gen 4 (the last one I played) and Gen 5 (I was still in the loop but not actively), people generally liked some like Pachirisu in particular.
