It has pouches in its cheeks, which are pinkish colored and used for storing electricity. Its nose is extremely small, almost like a dot. It is classified as a quadruped, but many have been known to walk easily on their hind legs. Its height is 1'00" and weight is 4.4 lbs.

Gender differences[]

A female Pichu looks almost exactly the same as a male, with the exception of her 3-spiked tuffs of hair on either of her ear. a female Pichu, has a spiked ear.


Special abilities[]

Pichu, like its evolutions, is capable of producing electrical sparks from its cheeks, charging itself with electricity more easily on days with thunderclouds or when the air is very dry. However, since Pichu is only a baby, it cannot control them as well, and may release electricity unintentionally. However, it is not able to store large amounts of electricity in its body.

Pichu, and its evolution family, Pikachu and Raichu, are the only known Pokémon that can learn Volt Tackle.


Pichu are social Pokémon known for their playfulness. They tend to be very mischievous and are always on the lookout for something fun to do. They are usually found in groups, typically with members of their own species, but occasionally with other types of Pokémon. Like their evolutions, they are capable of storing electricity from the atmosphere, however, this ability requires much practice to perfect. Pichu are prone to randomly discharging electricity, as they are not fully mature. They become better at holding power as they grow older. Pichu are frequently observed touching tails with each other, creating a shower of sparks.


Pichu primarily live in forests like their evolution, Pikachu, although they have also been depicted to thrive in urban areas.
