Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ, Hepburn: Pikachuu) (PEE-ka-choo[1]) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Pikachu is renowned for being the most well-known and recognizable Pokémon. Over the years, Pikachu has become so popular that it serves as the Pokémon franchise mascot. It is the Version Mascot and First partner Pokémon for the game Pokémon Yellow and its remake, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!. It is also well known from the anime, where Ash Ketchum, the former protagonist, owns a Pikachu. It evolves from Pichu when leveled up with high friendship and evolves into Raichu when exposed to a Thunder Stone. When in Alola (Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon), it evolves into Alolan Raichu through exposure to a Thunder Stone. It also has a Gigantamax form, and can be found in Cramorant's Gorging Form.

Pikachu was designed around the concept of electricity.[11] They are creatures that have short, yellow fur with brown markings covering their backs and parts of their lightning bolt-shaped tails. They have black-tipped, pointed ears and red circular pouches on their cheeks, which can spark with electricity.[12] They attack primarily by projecting electricity from their bodies at their targets.[13] Within the context of the franchise, Pikachu can transform, or "evolve," into a Raichu when exposed to a "Thunder Stone."[14] Pikachu was originally planned to have a second evolution called Gorochu, which was intended to be the evolved form of Raichu.[15][16] In Pokémon Gold and Silver, "Pichu" was introduced as an evolutionary predecessor to Pikachu.[17] In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, gender differences were introduced; since those games, female Pikachu have an indent at the end of their tails, giving the tail a heart-shaped appearance.


Pikachu is a prominent Pokémon in many of the Pokémon manga series. In Pokémon Adventures, main characters Red and Yellow both train Pikachu, which create an egg that Gold hatches into a Pichu.


Its large, expressive eyes, chubby cheeks, and small size are all factors that contribute to its appeal. Additionally, Pikachu's behavior in the Pokémon animated series, such as its friendliness and loyalty to its trainer, Ash Ketchum, further enhances its charm and endears it to fans
