The name Pikachu is a combination of the sound that is made by an electric spark – Pika and the sound that a mouse makes – Chu. Pikachu is an ‘electric type’, part of the legendary Pokemon species. The mouse like features and the yellow fur body with brown markings have made Pikachu one of the most endearing of the Pokemon over the years. They are only 0.4 m tall and have lightning bolt shaped tails. The red circular pouches on their cheeks spark with electricity. Pikachu is known for their loyalty to their masters. They are captured, trained and battle like any other Pokemon. The main attack of Pikachu is a bolt of electricity. They are evolved from Pichu and get further evolved into Raichu as the final form of transformation.
