Despite getting incredible results thus far, I do not believe pichu is top tier. He has too many exploitable weaknesses, such as his low range and minuscule weight (dying at 30 to an f smash is not fun). This causes him to lose to most characters with anything more than slightly larger range, and I personally have trouble against heavies and zoners especially. Overall a great character with his combos, killpower, and edgeguarding, but probably on the upper end of high tier rather than top. And after getting nerfed and doing more damaged to himself, makes him easier to kill.
