I think that Pikachu would be a good pokemon for you. Pikachu is an electric pokemon. Pikachu is the evolved version of Pichu, and like Pichu is very friendly and playful, but is more mature and better at battles than Pichu. If you are serious about pokemon battles then you may want to evolve Pikachu into Raichu, but you should only do it if you are both happy about it.
