Pikachu is a creature from the black lagoon Pokemon series who has the ability to emit electricity from its body, like a battery would. It evolves from Pichu and can evolve into Raichu.

In The Anime

Pikachu is Ash Ketchum's first (and favorite) Pokemon who is annoying beyond comprehension of the human mind. He refuses to climb into a Pokeball because he's such a rebel. It has tendencies to randomly electrocute various people with amperes that would usually be fatal, but it's an anime intended for young viewers so that's a no-go.

For some stupid reason, Team Rocket spends their lives attempting to pursue and capture Pikachu, especially Ash's Pikachu in particular, often in the form of cliche traps such as pits in the ground or even as far as giant robots. In the end of every episode, Pikachu is still at Ash's side and the cycle starts all over the next episode.

In The Games

Pikachu is #25 in the National Pokédex and is apparently so weak that Oak can catch it without battle. It evolves into a Raichu with a Thunder Stone.

  • In "Pokemon Yellow", you can talk to it, and it will tell you how it feels about you. He probably hates you unless you spam healing items even when it doesn't need healing.
  • In "Hey You, Pikachu!" you can swear at Pikachu, call him bad names, and say "Playstation" to piss him off. Hilarious.
  • In "Pokemon Snap" you can throw apples or gas balls at it and make it run away. What a coward.
  • In the Generation V games ("Black/White" and "Black 2/White 2"), it's actually impossible to get Pikachu without transferring from Generation IV! Scary, I know.
  • However, in Generation VI, Pikachu is even more common than in generation 1. This is because of successful conservation and breeding efforts by the French government in Kalos.

  • Oshawott, for pushing him off of Ash's shoulder, and for, otherwise, being a dick.
  • Team Rocket, for trying to steal him.
  • Evolving (will even block away thunderstones)

Criminal Record

  • His favourite non-Pokemon movie is Electric Dreams (1984).
  • Is a notorious cheater, and has broken many of the game's laws.
  • His evolved form is Raichu.
  • Loves Heinz ketchup...a lot.
    • In fact, it is his favourite food product.
  • Once framed Porygon in 1997 after he gave over 700 people in Japan epilepsy and/or seizures. Because of this, Porygon's evolutions, Porygon2 and Porygon-Z have not appeared in the anime ever since.
  • Was loved by kids of the '90s, both in Japan and the United States of America.
  • Is a rat mouse Pokemon.
  • Was the only one of two video game characters to appear as a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade's balloon (the other was Sonic the Hedgehog).

  • Soulja Boy longs to have some Pikachu diamonds around his house.
  • Currently, Pikachu can only be found in the wild in Kalos, France. The last wild populations in Kanto, Japan, were driven to extinction from habitat loss and capturing by trainers, in the year 1998.
