Pika family update

The Pikachu-family of Pokémon are an iconic set of Pokémon, each Generation featuring the debut of a Pikachu family, with the first two being Pikachu and its evolution Raichu. Every member is an Electric-type rodent. All have cheek pouches and resemble one another in some way. It must be remembered that the term Pikachu-family is not an official term; it is a fan-made term.


All members of the Pikachu-family have electricity pouches on their cheeks. The colours vary, with Pikachu, Plusle, and Dedenne having red cheeks; Raichu, Pachirisu, and Emolga having yellow cheeks; Pichu having pink cheeks; and Minun having blue cheeks.

The members are always a type of rodent or lagomorph. Pikachu, Raichu, and Pichu are southern/northern/plains viscachas; Plusle and Minun are rabbits; Pachirisu and Emolga are squirrels; and Dedenne is a mouse.



All generations announced at least one Pikachu-Family Pokémon

Ever since Generation IV (in the anime) a companion of ash caught a Pikachu-Family Pokémon for example Dawn's Pachirisu, Iris's Emolga and Clemont's Dedenne.

Generation II is the only generation to introduced a new member that was not an enterly new line species.
