Biological characteristics

Pikachu are short, stocky mouse[5] Pokémon that possess short, yellow fur with brown markings covering their backs and parts of their tails.

Ash Ketchum receives his Pikachu from Professor Oak as a starting Pokémon given to all new trainers. At first, Pikachu largely ignores Ash's requests, shocking him frequently and refusing to be confined to the conventional method of Pokémon transportation, a Poké Ball. However, Ash puts himself in danger to defend Pikachu from a flock of wild Spearow, then rushes the electric mouse to a Pokémon Center. Through these demonstrations of respect and unconditional commitment to Pokémon, Pikachu warms up to Ash, and their friendship is formed. Soon after, Pikachu shows a large amount of power that sets it apart from others. This causes Team Rocket to constantly seek out to capture it in order to win favor from their boss, Giovanni.

Pikachu & Pichu (995 words)
Pikachu looks down, and realizes that he is on a pole, about 30 stories up from the street.
Pikachu grabs onto a clothesline that connects the two buildings, but the Murkrow start to peck at him, and he almost starts to fall off.
Pikachu starts to jump from one to the other, and then uses the small platform that Meowth is on as a springboard, springing Meowth very, very far away.
HEY YOU, PIKACHU! N64 Game Review (1469 words)
Pikachu is a delightfully cute yellow mouse/cat character with a singsong voice and a one-word vocabulary that will drive anyone over 12 right up the wall (in fact, all of the Pokémon have this infliction and believe me a conversation between the two of them would make an effective torture device for many).
Once the relationship is established, Pikachu can then take kids on a tour of his world and friends through several adventures and games that include fishing, baby sitting other Pokémon, helping out with a picnic, piñata parties, and even searching for hidden treasure.
Pikachu then whips the ball at the player's head where it quickly drops to the ground and then moves on.
