==------------- Pikachu Items ---------------==
Pikachu is a Special Attacker Pokémon but "SpA" items not benefit this Pokémon at all.

Testing Electro Ball on training map and checking the Damage data vs doll and Pokémon's with 2 items (level 10) "Wise Glass + SP. Atk. Specs" to increase my Special Attacker the results was a increase of 6.4% of my damage. " BAD =( "
Electro Ball with items (1.990 damage)
Electro Ball without items was (1869 damage)

Comparison of skills increase base on SpA% in Pikachu another Pokémon's:

Electro Ball = 66% SpA + 25 x (Level - 1) + 530
Thunder = 18% SpA + 5 x (Level - 1) + 180
Volt Tackle = 9% SpA + 2 x (Level - 1) + 90
Thunderbolt = 50% SpA + 12 x (Level - 1) + 500
Thunderstorm = 49% SpA + 10 x (Level - 1) + 490

Mr. Mime (194% more damage base on your SpA)
Fake Out = 194% SpA + 25 x (Level - 1) + 470
Confusion = 213% SpA + 23 x (Level - 1) + 510
Confusion + Wall Hit = 255.6% SpA + 27 x (Level - 1) + 612

Eldegoss (even support get better benefit of SpA itens)
Leafage = 129% SpA + 11 x (Level - 1) + 210
Leaf Tornado = 125% SpA + 7 x (Level - 1) + 280
Cotton Cloud Crash = 255% SpA + 11 x (Level - 1) + 530

As you see SpA Items are not good to use on Pikachu.
Using normal attacks plus the benefit of having the biggest range on the game we can take our opponent down fast and easy with bigger base attack damage . Every Pokémon basic attack is base on 1`00% of our Atk Value check below

Pikachu Basic Attack
Damage = 100% Atk +38% SpA + 10 x (Level - 1) + 200

After using your Unite move:
Buddy Barrier:
HP +600
Grant a shield to you and a nearby ally Pokémon with the lowest HP for 20%/30%/40% max HP when using your Unite Move. (5s duration - 30s cooldown)

Energy amplifier:
Energy Gather Rate +6.0%
Cooldown Reduction +4.5%
After using your Unite move, deal increased damage by 7%/14%/21% for a short time. (4s duration - 14s cooldown)
21% Damage
