How to find and catch Pokémon Pichu?

Pokemon Pichu – Pokemon cubs that do not exist in nature It may sometimes be extracted from the egg.

Pichu is a little rodent Pokémon with light yellow hair that lives on the ground. It has black and angular ear points, collar, and tail. Pichu has pink cheek pouches that can store little quantities of power, and its tiny nose resembles a dot. Pichu is a quadruped, although it can easily walk on its hind legs.

Pichu is a sociable Pokémon noted for its mischievous and playful personality. It is generally seen in groups and will often touch tails with other Pichu to demonstrate bravery, causing a shower of sparks that may cause them to weep. It is incapable of storing electricity and may discharge if amused, surprised, or shocked. It cannot, however, discharge without being shocked. Charging is easier on days when there are no clouds or rain. The static electricity created by Pichu may be heard crackling. It is capable of zapping an adult human, although it will surprise itself if it does so. Pichu is mostly found in the wild, although it has also been shown to flourish in cities.

Spiky-eared Pichu is an alternative form of Pichu that featured in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, as well as the anime and manga. This female-only variant bears three spikes on the tip of its ear, but otherwise like any other Pichu.

Pichu and its evolved versions are the only Pokémon known to be able to learn the move Volt Tackle.
