Pichu (Japanese: ピチュー Pichu) is an Electric-type Pokémon. First seen in the Generation II games, it can be obtained by breeding a female Pikachu or Raichu with a compatible male Pokémon, or a male Pikachu or Raichu with a Ditto.

Pichu comes with the Ability Static, which paralyzes the foe 30% of the time it uses a direct attack on Pichu.

Pichu evolves into Pikachu by gaining a level after its Tameness is 220 or above, then into Raichu when exposed to a Template:I

Pokédex entries

Pokémon Gold / Pokémon LeafGreen
It is not yet skilled at storing electricity. It may send out a jolt if amused or startled.
Pokémon Silver / Pokémon FireRed
Despite its small size, it can zap even adult humans. However, if it does so, it also surprises itself.
Pokémon Crystal
It is unskilled at storing electric power. Any kind of shock causes it to discharge energy spontaneously.
Pokémon Ruby
Pichu charges itself with electricity more easily on days with thunderclouds or when the air is very dry. You can hear the crackling of static electricity coming off this Pokémon.
Pokémon Sapphire
When Pichu plays with others, it may short out electricity with another Pichu, creating a shower of sparks. In that event, this Pokémon will begin crying, startled by the flash of sparks.
Pokémon Emerald
It is still inept at retaining electricity. When it is startled, it discharges power accidentally. It gets better at holding power as it grows older.

Name origin

Pichu's name is a shortening of the name Pikachu to indicate that it is less than Pikachu. Its name, like Pikachu's, is a combination of ぴかぴか pikapika, which is Japanese onomatopoeia for sparkle, and ちゅうちゅう chūchū, which is the sound of squeaking.

It draws inspiration from mice, squirrels, and various other rodents.

Obtaining

From Generation II onwards, Pichu is able to be obtained by breeding two Pikachu, or a Ditto and a Pikachu, then hatching the resulting egg.
