'''Pichu''' (Japanese: '''ピチュー''' ''Pichuu'') is an {{type|Electric}}-[[Types|type]] Mouse and [[Baby Pokémon]] introduced in [[Generation II]].
 
 
==Appearance==
 
Pichu are very small, plump, yellow rodent-like [[Pokémon]]. It bears a similar appearance to its evolved form [[Pikachu]], but varies in a number of ways. Pichu have diamond shaped ears on the top of their head, with the edges being black and the interior yellow.
 
Underneath their head is a black pattern, that somewhat resembles a collar. Their tails are completely black, and resemble a small lightning bolt, similar to its evolved forms which are larger. Pichu also have round, pink sacs on their cheeks, used for storing electricity.
 
 
==Special abilities==
 
Pichu have the special ability [[Static]]. This allows for a 30% chance that an opponent will become [[Status effects#Paralysis|paralyzed]] if it lands a physical attack on Pichu.
 
Pichu, like its other forms, is capable of storing electricity in the pink sacs on its cheeks. Being a baby [[Pokémon]] however, Pichu can not store as much electricity as its evolved forms. It will shock itself if any electricity leaks out of its cheeks.
 
 
==Evolution==
 
'''Pichu''' evolves into [[Pikachu]] by leveling it up with max [[happiness]]. Pikachu then evolves into [[Raichu]] when exposed to a [[Thunderstone]].
 
 
==Appearances==
 
===In the anime===
 
[[File:Pichu Brothers.jpg|thumb|left|The Pichu Bros.]]
 
The majority of appearances of Pichu in any [[Pokémon Anime|anime]] form, have been from the [[Pichu Brothers]]. The pair have been featured in episodes of [[Pokémon Chronicles]], animated shorts like [[Pikachu & Pichu]], and [[Camp Pikachu]], and in the game [[Pokémon Channel]]. It is rumored that these Pichu's nicknames are Ritchie and Sparky, although this is highly unlikely, since these are wild Pichu and [[Ritchie]] and [[Sparky]] are actual characters in the anime, Ritchie being Sparky's Trainer.
 
 
Pichu's first appearance in the series was in the episode ''The Apple Corp.'', where a group of Pichu were stealing apples from an orchard.
 
 
In ''[[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters Out Of The Gate]]!'' a Pichu's brother is kidnapped and Pichu try's to find her brother, but get caught.
 
 
In ''[[Hungry for the Good of Life]]'', there are some Pichu.
 
 
In Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, a [[Mew]] was seen briefly transforming into a Pichu
 
 
A [[Spikey Eared Pichu|Notched Ear Pichu]] is supposed to appear in ''[[MS012: Pokémon - Arceus and the Jewel of Life|Arceus and the Jewel of Life]].'' She gets the jail keys so [[Ash]] and co. can escape. She also frees the other Pokémon. In English, it is called Spiky Eared Pichu.
 
 
===In the manga===
 
[[File:Pichugoldmanga.PNG|thumb|Pichu in the Pokémon Adventures Manga.]]

===''Super Smash Bros.''===
 
[[File:Pichu (Super Smash Bros. Melee Artwork).jpg|thumb|right|Pichu's artwork from [[Super Smash Bros. Melee]].]]
 
Pichu appeared in the game ''[[Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' as an unlockable character. It is unlocked by beating event 37 or playing 200 matches in VS. mode. In this game, Pichu has a low attack and light weight, as well as loses health with each attack it makes, making it a rather difficult character to play as.
 
 
In ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', Pichu again appears in this game, though its status has been dropped from playable character to a trophy. One of Pikachu's alternate costumes was one of Pichu's less people thinking that the Pichu evolved into Pikachu.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
*Pichu is the only [[Generation II]] [[Pokémon]] and the first non [[Generation I]] Pokémon to be playable in the [[Super Smash Bros.]] series.

*In the movie Arceus and The Jewel of Life, the Pichu that appeared had a notched ear.
 
*Pichu is the only electric-type Pokémon to learn Present via by breeding.
 
*Pichu can learn Volt Tackle when its level 1 by having a female Pikachu breeding with a male Pikachu, or a Ditto and the male/female Pikachu has to be holding a Light Ball in order to do this.
 
*As a baby, it is the fastest Pokemon.
