Pikachu is very fast and is an Electric type. It’s a good idea to use a Ground Pokemon. Ground is strong against Electric so a Ground Pokemon should be able to take plenty of hits without being incapacitated. However, you need to be careful not to kill Pikachu. Avoid using Ground moves if possible, sticking to normal moves to lower Pikachu’s HP so you can catch it more efficiently.

Lower Pikachu’s HP as much as possible before tossing off a ball and you should catch Pikachu easily.
