But that's not even why she's the lamest Raichu.
Here's the thing.
She's the electric type of my little group, but she doesn't know any electric type moves. Other than, like, Thunder Wave, but that hardly counts since her Static usually suffices on that front, and Gali knows that move as well.
She knows Brick Break, Quick Attack and Focus Punch. I don't know why I decided to give her two strong fighting type moves, but I guess I did? At least my Electrode was all electric like. I would probably use him now, but he's ridiculously underleveled by now. Also, I like Raichu more.
The moral of the story is dotcom is a terrible Pokemon trainer and he needs to get some electric TMs.
