Description: The most iconic Pokémon around, Pikachu has been the Mascot for the franchise since day one. Pikachu is a small, yellow mouse with a giant electric bolt shaped tail. It has bright red pouches on its cheeks where it stores electricity. Male and female Pikachu look a little different, most notably with female Pikachu's tails ending in a heart shape. Being the mascot of the series, Pikachu has had the most variations and special forms of any Pokémon. While many of these forms are cosmetic, some do have an impact on gameplay as well. Pikachu also has a Gigantimax form in which it becomes massive, very chubby and its tail grows incredibly long. A Gigantimax Pikachu is said to contain the same amount of electricity as a power plant!
