I'm not too much of a big fan of Pokèmon and beads actually but this one is a very little cutie. Praise goes both to you and to the sprite creator, as you both did a very good job, him ( or her) on the sprite craft and you on the bead one. His expression is really happy and i like that, I obviously like the halloween theme as well as the shadowing you've done on it. Generally a very quite idea, nothing stunning, but for sure is something that it's easy to appreciate. Good job on this one and i'm looking forward to your next work : )

In first place I think perler beads (and pixel art) should be recognizable, since many art works tend to be just pixel slobber due to the minimal resolution. This is definitely not the case on this one. The colors were well chosen to both resemble Pikachu and that the viewer can instantly see what bead belongs to what part. Regarding resemblance it is easy to see that this is a Pikachu, probably even to most people who did not play Pokemon since the iconic body form and colors were well captured.

The second most important thing for me is the look. Thanks to the good upload quality it is well visible that the beads were well processed, which is the reason I gave 5 stars in technique, so no critique there. But, here comes the first of the two things I'd like to criticize, it looks very static and therefore unnatural. The Pikachu stands up perfectly straight with his hands stretched up to the front. Definitely not a pose you'd naturally do. A sitting Pikachu would have probably looked more natural and hence more cute. But that is a minor point, since Pikachu is often portraited as standing. Despite that fact I can agree with Ziano87; he looks happy and cute.

Now to my third and last point: originality. I gave 2 1/2 stars because of one major thing: the sprite wasn't made by the artist, but by angelishi, who by the way did a good job with it, but since it was practically just copied from them I think the missing 3 stars belong to the original artist. Also this work pretty much vanishes in the big mass of Pikachus done by other artists. But to be fair the moving sprite had to be translated to a static set of perler beads and the choice of the sprite was probably tough too since there - as mentioned before - are A LOT of Pikachus.

All things considered I think it was made very well and in result looks cute, but the originality went missing because it was made by someone else. But I don't think that that affects the quality of the art in general, but only the rating in originality.
I hope I could write a fair and helpful critique since this was my first time.
