Pichu is an Electric-type Pokémon that evolves into Pikachu via friendship, which evolves into Raichu when exposed to a Thunder Stone.


Pichu is a small, rodent-like Pokémon with pale yellow fur. Its eartips, collar, and tail are black and angular. Pichu's pink cheek pouches can store small amounts of electricity, and its tiny nose looks like a dot.

The crackling of static electricity generated by Pichu is audible.


Pichu is a social Pokémon, known for its playful and mischievous demeanor.

Pichu is usually found in groups and often touch tails with other Pichu or Pikachu, creating a bolts of electricity. 


Pichu primarily lives in the forest, though it has also been depicted to thrive in urban areas.


The Spiky-eared Pichu and the Pikachu-coloured Pichu have shown to enjoy Grepa Berries.


Pichu is inept at storing electricity, and may discharge if amused, startled, or subjected to shock. However, it cannot discharge without being shocked itself. Charging up is more easily done on days of dryness or thunderclouds.
