PikarisuShipping is the belief that Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Pachirisu are or are destined to be in a romantic relationship. The name is derived from Pikachu and Pachirisu's English names. It is considered a rival of LagomorphShipping and can be considered evidence of PearlShipping, similar to how LagamorphShipping is sometimes thought of.
- Whenever Pikachu is sent out to use electric type moves, for a purpose other than battling, such as in Leading a Stray or Regaining the Home Advantage, Dawn sends out Pachirisu to help.
- Buneary and Pachirisu are, apparently, good friends, even making an "Ice Chandelier." This could mean that they would compete for Pikachu's affection.
- Pikachu and Pachirisu share many similarities:
- They are both the only electric type Pokémon to be owned by main characters.
- They are both based off of rodents.
- They are often sent out of their Poké Balls to work together on things involving electricity.
- Coincidentally, these two Pokémon appear in the WFC conection screen
- They are both in the field egg group and can breed.
- They are also both in the fairy egg group.
