Pikachu in his debut

After Red drags Clefairy into the Pewter City Gym to face Brock's Onix, the two had learned of Brock's collection and that Clefairy's cousin Pikachu was also a part of it. The news had enraged Clefairy and had given him the courage to face Onix in battle, which Clefairy later wins by drawing his picture onto Onix's tail, causing Onix to chase after its tail and become dizzy, and is finished off as Clefairy smashes a fallen pillar on its head. By winning the battle, Pikachu was granted freedom from Brock's collection and joined Red's team.

As Red and Clefairy were fighting over a piece of fish that Clefairy was saving for the next day, it went inside Pikachu's mouth and was eaten whole. Clefairy grabbed Pikachu and used him as a fishing rod despite Red warning them not too since Pikachu's electricity could harm the fish. True to Red's word, Pikachu's electricity zapped the whole lake and several fish went flying out. Later, he went chasing after a Mew who took the Moon Stone from Red.

In Something Happened!! Let's Go After Pikachu!! of the Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire series, Ruby finds Red's Pikachu and wanting one for himself, decides to steal Pikachu away by bribing Clefairy with food and swapping Pikachu with a Poké Ball containing his Treecko. Clefairy panics when Red and his Tyrogue return, and goes to great lengths to try to disguise Treecko as Pikachu and to lie about Pikachu's actual location. While Clefairy leaves to go retrieve Pikachu himself, Treecko tells Red the truth about what really happened, and the other three leave to also get Pikachu back.

Pikachu traveled to the Unova region along with Red and Clefairy where he crashed into a bush. After Pikachu brushed himself off, he noticed some unseen Pokémon and a Patrat told him that he arrived in Unova.

Personality and characteristics

Unlike most Pokémon in the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga series, which are capable of speech, Red's Pikachu unusually cannot speak, and instead uses pantomime to communicate. Pikachu is often shown to be the opposite of his cousin Clefairy. While Clefairy is typically rude and full of dumb ideas, Pikachu is much more intelligent, well-behaved and generally more capable. This has sometimes been the source of rivalry between the two Pokémon, leading to fights.

According to Clefairy, Pikachu shocks people to show when it's happy, a fact that Red is not too fond of.

Moves used

Pikachu with Red and Clefairy

Pikachu appeared along with Red and Clefairy in the anime episode Lights, Camerupt, Action!. The three characters appeared in one of Ash's favorite films. Much like in the manga, it appears to be the only Pokémon around that isn't able to talk.
