What electric-type move should I keep for my pikachu?

Thunder, thunder volt or volt tackle, well because you know it's not good to have many moves of the same type, well which one?

Well thunder has a high attack power, but low accuracy and for volt tackle it has a high attack power and better accuracy than thunder but it does damage to my pikachu due to recoil and thunder volt it has a good power and accuracy, I'm planning on choosing two

I would go against others and say only choose ONE electric move.

If your special attack is higher, go for Thunderbolt. It has 100% accuracy and is still really powerful. If the attack is better then Volt Tackle would be a better option.

Then you can save spots for other types of moves (like a Water move if possible) and some stat-increasing moves perhaps.

If you're keeping a Pikachu, and it has a choice of Volt Tackle, I'm going to assume it has a Light Ball. If so, still go with thunderbolt. While Thunder and Volt Tackle are both stronger than thunderbolt, thunder has 70 accuracy, while Volt Tackle has 90 accuracy and 1/3 recoil. Pikachu are incredibly frail, so you don't want to throw your precious HP out the window just to use Volt Tackle.

Remember, Pikachu isn't the high-tier Pokemon he is in the anime. Pikachu, without a Light Ball, are incredibly delicate and can die to any attack. Even with a Light Ball, they are still frail, but are hole-ripping powerful offensive forces.

Thunder and Thunderbolt. This way, you have accuracy AND power giving you a strong stategy. Plus you do not lose any health yourself. However, I think you should evolve Pikachu as it will get MUCH stronger!
