Pikachu is a very-rare Electric-type Pokémon from Kanto region. It evolves from Pichu after being fed with 25 candies and can evolve into Raichu when fed with 50 candies. Pikachu is also the Starter Pokémon.
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.
Pikachu is the part of a three-member family.
