Suggested by Sonic Pichu is incredibly fast and is definitely known as one of the stronger Pokemon. That being said, he definitely isn’t ready to take down Ryu just yet. Ryu has enough durability to take Pichu’s shots long enough to counter with his own. Additionally, his attack power is high enough where that one counter punch could end the match. There’s a big gap in their abilities which will be incredibly difficult to overcome. Ryu wins.
