Whenever Pikachu comes across something new, it blasts it with a jolt of electricity. If you come across a blackened berry, it's evidence that this Pokémon mistook the intensity of its charge.
You can evolve Pikachu using Pikachu Candy. It will evolve into a Raichu.
When powering up a Pokémon, its CP will increase and it will do more damage. The amount of Stardust and Candy needed depends on how much the Pokémon is already leveled up.
