Pro

He was a good pokemon and was very cute and sometimes does funny stuff, like the ketchup thing[1]

Con

I negate the resolution "Pikachu was a good pokemon."

As my opponent has not defined "good", I will do so:

Good - of high quality; excellent. [1]

Pikachu neither was nor is good, as it lacks combat strength. I cannot fully articulate this point due to the character limit (a mere 750 characters), but one need only peruse the Pokedex [2] to see that Pikachu's [3] stats and movepool are poor compared to many other pokemon. Due to its lack of combat strength, Pikachu neither was nor is a good pokemon. In response to my opponent's argument, cuteness is subjective and does not indicate quality or excellence.

Con

My opponent has failed to post more than one argument, which I refuted, and has not refuted my argument. He has also forfeited both rounds of the debate. Please vote CON for arguments, conduct (forfeits), spelling/grammar (no period after source citation), and sources (one picture vs three links).
