Pikachu has electricity-storing pouches on his cheeks. These appear to become electrically charged during the night while Pikachu sleeps. He occasionally discharges electricity when he is dozy after waking up.
Whenever Pikachu comes across something new, he blasts it with a jolt of electricity. If you come across a blackened berry, it's evidence that Pikachu mistook the intensity of his charge.
Over the years, Pikachu has become so popular that he serves as the Pokémon franchise mascot. He is the Version Mascot for the game Pokémon Yellow. He is also well known from the anime, where Ash Ketchum, the protagonist, owns a Pikachu. Pikachu evolves from Pichu when leveled up with high friendship and evolves into Raichu when exposed to a Thunder Stone. When in Alola, he evolves into his Alolan form.
The Ultimate Story
Pikachu became another important character in the Ultimate Story. She began as one of the heroes that were chosen to partake in the Ultimate Destiny. She was brought to a special school from her home planet, a distant world that was populated by only Pokemon and one that Ly watches over. At the school, she met and developed a very close bond with Fox. The 2 of them have remained inseparable ever since.
Pikachu was one of the few who were chosen to officially be a part of the Ultimate Destiny along with her best friend, Fox.
Much time after she had been training, a terrible disaster struck the school, forcing Lisa to abruptly return everyone to their home worlds, but she lost sight of where she had Pikachu sent. Pikachu wound up on Earth where she wondered aimlessly not knowing where she needed to go. Throughout all of it, Fox was always on her mind and she longed to one day reunite with him. She was eventually found by Professor Oak, who took her in and, over time, gave her to Ash as his first Pokémon. There, Pikachu also reunited with Lisa, who had been searching for her since they separated. Pikachu was also revealed to have held one of the 10 Pokémon stones inside of her. Misty, having just joined the group recently, was happy to have met Pikachu as she had already met and became close friends with Fox. She then promised Pikachu that she would reunite her with Fox. They eventually did once Ash got to Pewter City, and after that, they promised to let Pikachu see Fox as soon as she's done with Ash's mission on becoming a part of the Ultimate Destiny and find all 10 Pokémon stones.
Legends of the Multi-Universe (Menslady's Story)
When Emperor X infected Ash with a malevolent spell which turned him evil, little Pikachu was devastated. Even though the Children of the Autobots loved him dearly as if he was their own, Pikachu was still heartbroken about Ash.
Fortunately, when Emperor X abandoned his evil ways, he chose to free Ash from the evil spell he had used to corrupt him. Ash tried to apologize to Pikachu, but Emperor X said that he was the one who needed to apologize. This he did, and Pikachu chose to put the past behind.
Now that he's reunited with Ash and not hurt by loss, Pikachu feels he can do a better job of protecting the Angels of Disney.
Pikachu, aka Daffodil, is a Pokémon that is owned by an OC Trainer named Mary, the champion of the Kanto region. She is one of Mary's close companions; in fact, she never has her own Poké Ball as she always prefers to ride upon her owner's shoulders. Much like any other Pikachu, she's light, playful, and also powerful with her agility and shocking moves. She belongs to a team of six and she tags along with them during an interplanetary war. She was very helpful, even when she and the other electrical rodents helped her dismantle a minefield.
Mary and other Pokémon OCs belong to pikaace.
