Pikachu has also appeared in all three ''Super Smash Bros. Series'' games. Pikachu is a very agile and mobile playable character. In [[Super Smash Bros.]], Pikachu was considered the strongest playable character. In ''[[Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'', Pikachu's [[Skull Bash]] move was introduced, and its [[Quick Attack]] ability was upgraded so that it did a small amount of damage to opponents. Pikachu has also once again appeared in [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]] as a playable character, with its exclusive attack [[Volt Tackle]] as its Final Smash. If you look at the hat Pikachu and you look at the shiny above and the hat, you would notice it's the Shiny Pikachu with Red's Japanese hat.

== Origins ==
+
==Appearances==
===Design origin===
+
===In the anime===
Though not the first [[Pokémon]] created, Pikachu was the first "'''{{Type|Electric}}'''-type" [[Pokémon]] created, conceived after the type was suggested to Sugimori and designed around the concept of electricity and the common symbol for lightning.
+
[[File:RedPikachu.jpg|thumb|Red's Pikachu]]
  +
{{main|Ash's Pikachu|Sparky (Pokémon)}}
  +
Pikachu is considered as the main Pokémon in anime as it is starter of [[Ash Ketchum]]. Ash Ketchum received Pikachu in ''[[IL001: Pokémon - I Choose You!|Pokémon - I Choose You!]]'' and [[Ritchie]] owned a Pikachu named Sparky.
   
===Etymology===
+
*[[Puka]] (Surfing Pikachu in the anime)
The name "Pikachu" is a ''portmanteau'' of the Japanese words "pikapika", an onomatopoeia for electric sparkling, and "chū", which is the Japanese onomatopoeia for a mouse's squeak. It may also be based on the [http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/site/accounts/information/Ochotona_curzoniae.html pika], a mouse-like animal more closely related to rabbits , but it's behavior (or more noticibally it's eating habits) resemble that of hamsters.

==Trivia==
  +
*Pikachu is the only starter in the canon RPG games that deviates from the usual {{Type|Grass}}-, {{Type|Fire}}-, and {{Type|Water}}-typings.
  +
*Pikachu is the only Pokémon to have appeared in every episode, special, and movie in the series in some shape or form.
  +
*Though Pikachu isn't in the [[Unova]] Pokédex, an image of it can be found in a building in [[Castelia City]] before the National Pokédex is obtained, as well as on a billboard above the Castelia City Pokémon Center. There are also several Pikachu shaped hedges in [[Striaton City]]. Also, there is a giant Pikachu float next to the [[Nimbasa City]] Gym. This implies that many people in Unova know about Pikachu, despite not seeing one for themselves.
  +
*In the game [[Pokemon Battle Revolution]], Pikachu can use the HMs [[Surf]] and [[Fly]].
  +
*In Pokémon X and Y, [[Ikue Ōtani]] provides the voice of Pikachu in the place of a cry.
  +
*In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there are three variations of Pikachu, one has a headband similar to Brendan's hat, one has a hat similar to Ash's hat and another has goggles.
  +
*Pikachu has appeared on more merchandise than any other Pokémon, including the limited edition N64, Game Boy Color, DS and 3DS consoles.
  +
*In the 2011 Guinness World Records Book: Gamers Edition, Pikachu placed 20th in the "Top 50 VideoGame Characters of All Time."
  +
*Pikachu is the Japanese mascot for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

It may also be based on the [http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/site/accounts/information/Ochotona_curzoniae.html pika], a mouse-like animal more closely related to rabbits, but it's behavior (or more noticeably it's eating habits) resemble that of hamsters.
  +
*Though not the first [[Pokémon]] created, Pikachu was the first "'''{{Type|Electric}}'''-type" [[Pokémon]] created, conceived after the type was suggested to Sugimori and designed around the concept of electricity and the common symbol for lightning.

Pikachu (ピカチュウ Pikachu) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Pikachu is famous for being the most well-known and recognizable Pokémon. Over the past years, Pikachu has become so popular that it serves as the Pokémon franchise mascot. It is the Version Mascot for the game Pokémon Yellow. It is also known by the anime, where Ash Ketchum, the protagonist, owns a Pikachu.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Pikachu is a small, chubby, and incredibly cute mouse-like Pokémon which is covered almost completely by yellow fur. It has long yellow ears that are tipped with black. A Pikachu's back has two brown stripes, and its large tail is notable for being shaped like a lightning bolt. On its cheeks are two circle-shaped red pouches used for storing electricity, they turn yellow and spark with electricity when its about to use an Electric attack such as Thunderbolt. A female Pikachu looks almost exactly the same as a male, with the exception of her tail. A female Pikachu's tail is rounded at the end and has an inward dent, giving it the appearance of a heart. This, however, is only true in the Nintendo games. Throught most of the anime and in previous games, female and male Pikachu's look identical.

Like Pichu, Pikachu store most of their electricity within the red areas of their cheeks. It can be seen with small surges of electric energy whenever a Pikachu gets protective, mad, etc.

BehaviorEdit

Pikachu are usually friendly creatures that love to cuddle. They love having their tails rubbed, especially at the base. However if threatened or angered this Pokémon can be quite aggressive. If someone pulls it's tail it will try to bite.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Pikachu's special ability is Static, which can cause paralysis in battle if hit by a physical move. In Pokémon Black and White's Dream World, the Trainer receives a Pikachu with the Lightningrod ability. It is the first member of the Pikachu-family Pokémon.

EvolutionEdit

Pikachu evolves into a Raichu by using a Thunder Stone. It evolves from Pichu when its happiness is maxed with the trainer in game.

Game InfoEdit

Pikachu is the most main character in the game PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure.

Hidden StrengthEdit

Pikachu has Ultimate Potential when it comes to battle. If one trainer is lucky enough to obtain a Light Ball, his Pikachu can become very strong. His stats can exceed 400 in Attack and Sp.Attack, and can learn the exclusive electric move, Volt Tackle. With his Potential, he is an excellent Pokémon for any team, especially in competitions.

Super Smash Bros.Edit

Pikachus-Brawl

Pikachu's alternate costumes in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Pikachu has also appeared in all four Super Smash Bros. Series games. Pikachu is a very agile and mobile playable character. In Super Smash Bros., Pikachu was considered the strongest playable character. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pikachu's Skull Bash move was introduced, and its Quick Attack ability was upgraded so that it did a small amount of damage to opponents. Pikachu has also once again appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character, with its exclusive attack Volt Tackle as its Final Smash. If you look at the hat Pikachu and you look at the shiny above and the hat, you would notice it's the Shiny Pikachu with Red's Japanese hat.

Each of Pikachu's alternate forms in Brawl and SSB4 can be seen as a tribute to different Pokémon games; The blue goggles come from Pokémon Colosseum and the red hat comes from the Kanto region games while the green headband comes from Pokémon Emerald. In the fourth title, one alternate form is that of Calem.

Along with Mario, Link, and Kirby, Pikachu is a mascot for the Super Smash Bros. series.

TriviaEdit

  • Pikachu is the only starter in the canon RPG games that deviates from the usual Grass-, Fire-, and Water-typings.
  • Pikachu is the only Pokémon to have appeared in every episode, special, and movie in the series in some shape or form.
  • Though Pikachu isn't in the Unova Pokédex, an image of it can be found in a building in Castelia City before the National Pokédex is obtained, as well as on a billboard above the Castelia City Pokémon Center. There are also several Pikachu shaped hedges in Striaton City. Also, there is a giant Pikachu float next to the Nimbasa City Gym. This implies that many people in Unova know about Pikachu, despite not seeing one for themselves.
  • In the game Pokemon Battle Revolution, Pikachu can use the HMs Surf and Fly.
  • In Pokémon X and Y, Ikue Ōtani provides the voice of Pikachu in the place of a cry.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there are three variations of Pikachu, one has a headband similar to Brendan's hat, one has a hat similar to Ash's hat and another has goggles.
  • Pikachu has appeared on more merchandise than any other Pokémon, including the limited edition N64, Game Boy Color, DS and 3DS consoles.
  • In the 2011 Guinness World Records Book: Gamers Edition, Pikachu placed 20th in the "Top 50 VideoGame Characters of All Time."
  • Pikachu is the Japanese mascot for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

EtymologyEdit

  • The name "Pikachu" is a portmanteau of the Japanese words "pikapika", an onomatopoeia for electric sparkling, and "chū", which is the Japanese onomatopoeia for a mouse's squeak. It may also be based on the pika, a mouse-like animal more closely related to rabbits, but it's behavior (or more noticeably it's eating habits) resemble that of hamsters.
  • Though not the first Pokémon created, Pikachu was the first "Electric-type" Pokémon created, conceived after the type was suggested to Sugimori and designed around the concept of electricity and the common symbol for lightning.
