Pikachu, the Mouse Pokémon, is an Electric-type Pokémon. Pikachu is one of the original set of Pokémon. Pikachu was even featured on the boxart of Pokémon Yellow Version as its mascot and only starter Pokémon. Pikachu is also the mascot of the Pokémon franchise and one of Nintendo's collective mascots.

AppearanceEdit

A Pikachu is a short, chubby, ground-dwelling rodent notable for its Electric abilities. Pikachu have short, yellow fur with brown stripes on the back, red cheeks that can produce small jolts of electricity, a mouth that looks like a sideways three, black-tipped ears, along with an unusually shaped tail, resembling a lightning bolt. Besides its evolution and pre-evolution, it may be related to Plusle, Minun, Pachirisu, and Emolga due to notable physical similarities.

Pikachu are known to have acute senses of hearing, thanks to their large ears. Most domestic Pikachu are able to understand and interpret human speech at levels far surpassing those of any pet dog.

Gender differencesEdit

A female Pikachu has a v-shaped "dent" at the end of its tail. Male Pikachu do not have this dent. However, both genders' tails resemble a lightning bolt, fitting their Electric typing. In Black and White, male Pikachu have less black covering their ear, this is only shown in frontal sprites. Also female Pikachu have slightly longer ears.

EvolutionEdit

Pikachu is the evolved form of Pichu and the pre-evolved form of Raichu. Pichu evolves into Pikachu when holding a Soothe Bell and when its Happiness increases enough. Pikachu evolves into Raichu when a Thunderstone is used and can only be evolved that way. Pikachu and Raichu can breed to make a Pichu egg.
