  • I'll go with it. Pikachu's page is at least as good as Ash and the Pikachu to English translations are especially convincing. Only objection is that the main article fizzles a bit towards the end. Aura-Knight 16:37, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Hmm... I guess he's right. I certainly like this one better than most other FACs. The only improvements I could suggest are to cut down on trivia by incorporating them into the main article (perhaps we could create a "gender debate" section to help with this?). (EDIT: as of 7/25/08 at 8:00 AST, Aura-Knight has made the changes I suggested, so now I'm more fully behind this.) --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 23:11, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I go with cause it's a good page and very well written in some ways--CoolPikachu! 04:39, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes, THis article features one of the main chracters of the show. Elbutler 11:38, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I think Pikachu is worth of being a Featured article. §#!π¥£!Ψ@Ϛ#µ 03:30, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
  • This is one of the best articles written about an anime Pokémon. Deemack199725 09:19, 05 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes.Shadow1337 23:00, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I'd like to add my support for it getting Featured Article status. It's well written, informative, and as Martonimos pointed out, the section on Pikachu's "language" is a great addition. --Mike | Contrib 08:02, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I support it, since it's obviously well researched and well thought out. The information is accurate and complete, if not, then errors are very few. Two thumbs up. --JirachiWishmaker0802 04:04, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I will support it as it is the best Pokémon page, and those aren't put in as featured article candidates very often. Also, it has no errors or things needing improvement. It leaves nothing out Thegreat4 01:21, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Very detailed article-Billy4b2004 06:48, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Very detailed, and although the trivia might be a bit long, the language section and the gender debate sections do show quite a bit of research. The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 01:46, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Support because I like voting support Because of the same reason I supported Ash--The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 01:52, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I like Pikachu. Pikachu is cool. LUVSJOSH
    • Does that make it a good article? Anyway, I support. This article was written/edited by someone who did a lot of research, especially the language bit. As Martonimos pointed out, that's definitely not the kind of thing you would expect from some ordinary fan. The only thing wrong with it is the trivia... Alpha Totodile 22:54, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
  • It's simple, it ROCK'S!!Very cool, interesting and complete.Congrats to the writer.Like the gender section,by the way HE is male.User:Pokenick
  • Gota love Pikachu!--Mclena45 01:36, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Why not.. it's Ash we all hate, not his Pikachu. R.A. Hunter Blade 02:17, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Pikachu is the most popular Pokémon ever. His/her article should be on the featured list. Batista 02:02, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
  • I think it is a very in-depth article and one of the best I've seen on the site→→→ Shiny Rayquaza 22:25, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
  • This is one of the best articles I've seen. It has good quality pictures that allow you to know the history without even reading it. I definitely support it.Puppo530 01:12, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
    • I may be mistaken, but isn't the point of an article to read it? — THE TROM — 01:20, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I don't think this choice is very original and it isn't what I would say is one of the best, and I think that there are more note-worthy articles out there. MoldyOrange 23:52, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I concur, its nomination is bunkDCM 13:46, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  • We can do better. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links11:44 15 Aug 2008
  • I think there are better articles... Kamusioso
  • Could be definitely worked on...trivia is massive, but we could move it. Still...too much text... ht14 01:28, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
  • The article is messy, packed, blobby, too firmly defined and over the top. It starts off kind of OK, but as it gets further, it just notes on a bunch of uninteresting random successes that are not important. The Pikachu language bit's alright, but needs some fine-tuning. And as for the gender debate... GET RID OF IT. Everyone knows good and well that Ash's Pikachu is male, and yet the article acts like the massive amount of very true male evidence isn't enough (not to mention, there is little female evidence compared to male, which in my opinion make awful points, like the Buneary not knowing Pikachu's gender thing). This shouldn't be a featured article, even it is Pikachu. User:Dusknoir477 17:31, 24 January (UTC)

Other comments

In response to your comment Moldy Orange, most of those other articles are already nominated. Pikachu is probably the best anime Pokémon page. Aura-Knight 13:41, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

A lot of people will ignore this because it's a main character page, but unlike Ash, I believe this one actually has merit. The "language" section especially shows a great deal of research, and not the level you'd expect from some fangirl. I just want to make clear that we're not necessarily supporting this because "i <3 pikachu", although some of us might, but because we think it's a well-thought out article. I mean, come on, guys; I hate the anime and everything associated with it. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 18:39, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
