Pokemon fans are demanding that Raichu have its stats buffed to make it more viable in competitive play solely because of its notoriety.

While a fair number of comments agreed with Diego, others defended the Pokemon’s viability. They pointed out how it has very useful moves such as Nuzzle and Fake Out, and its Lightning Rod ability helps tremendously with damage negation.
