Pichu is a really under rated character
yeahhe is very fast and can easily take itemsalso thunder does some nice amount of damage
I mean he did get nerfed.. I haven't fought too many pichu personally but he can still do alot for sure.
he's not underrated, People just don't play him anymore, but defiantly not underrated
I mean he does take self damage for every electrical based move but he's super small fast and if you crouch with him he is a very hard you hit
he his underrated but he damages his self
