Pikachu is an Electric-type Pokémon that evolves from Pichu when leveled up with high happiness. It evolves into Raichu when a Thunder Stone is used on it.

Whenever Pikachu comes across something new, it blasts it with a jolt of electricity. If you come across a blackened berry, it's evidence that this Pokémon mistook the intensity of its charge.
