You know how to tell? He's the one everyone knows. That's what being the face of something means. People recognize you by your face. People recognize pokeman by pikachu. Everyone knows pikachu.

That is not entirely true. Charizard is more recognized not in the pokemon community(which is large because it is the second best selling of all time with 262 million being sold). Not to mention all of my family recognizes charizard. I have meet people who don't know pickachu but know blastoies. Hell in fact when you think about it in the past america had red and blue where pikachus are no where to be seen on the cover. In fact if anything the name is more recognizable. Some people say pikachu and think of charizard, I know I have seen happen. That is why there is no face of pokemon, because everyone is a face.

You are again conflating 1 portion of the franchise (the game boy games) for the entire franchise.

Oh bringing the rest would also drive my point home, as pikachu is most defenitaly not the face of the TCG, as so many pokemon take the spot light of that. The anime the face is actually ash, because he is the main character. Sure pikachu is always with him, but pikachu would be nothing without ash in the first place.

No I somewhat recognize the name from you and a couple other people on this forum, but no clue what it looks like and never heard of it before now. Never met anyone who doesn't know pikachu. Even if they don't know wha he's from they know who he is.

No no no. It's the whole thing as a whole. All of Pokemon. Do a poll of 100,000 random people. Ask, what's the first thing you think of when you hear the word Pokemon? I guarantee pikachu will win by a landslide.

I have meet people who don't know of pikachu but know charizard. There is a reason charizard is up with pikachu though and that is because he deserves it. He is a better design and is a much better pokemon. Plus even nintendo, recognizes charizard more that the mouse, this is why the SMB series is switching from pikachu to charizard. The fanbase it self is tired of pikachu anyway as far as I can tell.

No not really. As far as popular pokemon go, charizard usually beats pikachu, though there are times where pikachu beats charizard. IGN for example notes charizard as the best, some in fact debate on whether charizard is more popular than pikachu. Not only that but as I said before nobody in the fanbase really likes the mouse.

Only on TTA can there be a lively debate on Pokemon.

I can't believe there's a debate on Pokemon and pikachu. I know he sucks I never use him but people recognize him as a Pokemon. What will people think of something like Stunfisk
