Pikachu's gender differences in the anime
Pikachu’s gender differences in the anime

 

Pikachu is a pudgy, small rodent Pokémon. It has yellow hair and two horizontal brown stripes on its back. It features a short, pointed mouth, long, pointed ears with black tips, and brown eyes. Each cheek is a red circle with a bag for storing power. It has short forearms with five fingers on each paw and three toes on each foot. A patch of brown hair may be seen at the base of its lightning bolt-shaped tail. A female has a V-shaped notch at the end of her tail that resembles the top of a heart. Although it is categorized as a quadruped, it has been seen standing and walking on its hind legs.

According to the anime, wild Pikachu reside in groups in wooded places. Pikachu interact with one another via amicable gestures such as squeaks and tail-shaking. Alolan Pikachu are known to greet each other by sniffing and rubbing their tails together in the anime. Electricity may be utilized to communicate with each other and other Electric Pokémon species. When it lifts its tail to investigate its surroundings, it is sometimes hit by lightning. When groups expand in size, they might unintentionally generate lighting storms. Pikachu goes foraging for Berries, which it roasts with electricity to make them edible. Patches of scorched grass are a solid clue that Pikachu is around. It has been seen consuming and sometimes damaging telephone poles, cables, and other electrical equipment. Cramorant may inadvertently consume it on occasion. While scared, it seeks methods to flee the latter.

Pikachu recharge itself by resting at night, however stress and lack of sleep might interfere. It may produce electric discharges of varied strength. Pikachu is known to store energy in its glands, which it will need to release in order to prevent difficulties. It can also discharge energy via its tail, which serves as a grounding rod, and recharge other Pikachu with electric shocks.

Pikachu has three different appearances: the first, Cosplay Pikachu, appears only in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It is usually female, has a black heart-shaped patch at the end of its tail, and may be dressed in any of the five Contest costumes. Pikachu with a hat is the second form, which debuted as an event-exclusive Pokémon in Generation VII. It is always male and comes in eight different variations, each wearing one of Ash’s caps from the anime. Many additional Pikachu varieties have featured in other media, in addition to these two. The last Pokémon is Partner Pikachu, with whom the player begins Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!. This Pikachu may be either male or female, has greater starting stats, and can do moves that regular Pikachu cannot.

It becomes bigger and chubbier as it evolves into Gigantamax Pikachu. Its tail grows longer and can store all of the energy it creates, making it to flash a brilliant yellow and allowing it to become as strong as a lightning strike. The tail is surrounded by three crimson clouds. It has the same power as a power plant, but it is difficult to utilize in people’s houses since Pikachu can only stay in its Gigantamax form for a short period.

 

Pikachu and its variants have several signature moves:

  • Pikachu and its evolutionary ancestors are the only Pokémon known to know the move Volt Tackle.
  • Pikachu is the only Pokémon known to use the Z-Move Catastropika. Pikachu is also the only Pokémon known to be able to use the Light Ball item.
  • The only known Pokémon capable of utilizing the Z-Move 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt is Pikachu in a hat.
  • Pikachu is the only Pokémon known to be able to learn the moves Zippy Zap, Floaty Fall, and Splishy Splash, as well as the companion power Pika Papow.
  • The only known Pokémon capable of utilizing the G-Max Move G-Max Volt Crash is Gigantamax Pikachu.

Availability

  • Pikachu was released along with the game launch on July 6th, 2016.
  • Shiny_Pokemon_icon Shiny form of Pikachu was released at the start of Pokémon GO Park on August 9th, 2017.

Trivia

  • Normally, evolved Pokémon cannot be shiny on the encounter screen, but Pikachu can.
  • Pikachu is one of four starter Pokémon, along with Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle.
  • Pikachu may be captured as a Starter Pokémon by walking away from three previously hatched Starter Pokémon, causing them to vanish and re-appear close to the trainer at his present position. Players must repeat this process many times until Pikachu appears with the previous three Starter Pokémon.
  • Pikachu, unlike the other three Starter Pokémon, is not the first stage form in its evolution line, despite the fact that it was at the time of its debut.
  • Pikachu is the most popular and recognizable Pokémon in the game, and it has a few easter eggs.
    In contrast to the other Pokémon in the game, if Pikachu is touched when viewing its summary page, it speaks its name exactly as it does in the anime series.
  • It contains a variety of Event forms for different events in the game.
    Its silhouette may be seen in the Pokémon Collection button. Button in White Button Pokemon Pikachu #025 pikachu is located on the Main Menu Button Button Main Menu Pikachu #025 pikachu
  • Its picture may be seen on the PokéCoin icon PokeCoin_Icon
  • Trainers that collect 3, 50, 300, or 1,000 Pikachu get the Pikachu Fan medal, which is unlocked and leveled up. PikachuFan Bronze Pikachu #025 pikachu PikachuFan Silver Pikachu #025 pikachu PikachuFan Gold Pikachu #025 pikachu PikachuFan Platinum Pikachu #025 pikachu
  • Pikachu was a 4th tier level Raid Boss during the Pokémon GO Park event in Yokohama, with a CP of 11,845. In Bonus Challenge, Pikachu’s maximum capture CP was 450.
  • Previously, Flying Pikachu could only learn additional charged attacks that the regular form could learn by unlocking a second charged attack or Charged TM. This is no longer the case with the Pokémon Air Adventures 2022.
  • Pikachu is the only Pokémon possessing two attacks that no other Pokémon can learn, Fly and Flying Press, although in different forms.
  • Pikachu in a costume for Halloween is based on Mimikyu.
