Trivia

  • Pikachu can possibly be a starter Pokémon. This can be achieved by walking away from the original three choices and causing them to respawn 4 or 5 times until Pikachu appears.
  • Pikachu is the only Pokémon that says its name instead of just making a noise.
  • You can now tell the gender of a Pikachu just by looking at its tail.
  • If you walk with Pikachu as your buddy for 10 or more km, it will sit on your shoulder instead of stand next to you.
