Pichu is an Electric type Generation II Pokémon. It evolves into Pikachu when leveled up with high friendship, and eventually evolves into Raichu via Thunder Stone.

Pichu is known to be playful, mischievous, and social, and can be often be found in groups with others like it. It can't store too much electricity in its cheek pockets; it may even wind up harming itself during a discharge.

Pichu is voiced by Satomi Kourogi.

Pokedex Description

Pichu, The Tiny Mouse Pokémon, Pichu is capable of producing electrical sparks from its cheeks. However, since Pichu is only a baby, it cannot control them as well, and may release electricity unintentionally. Fortunately, it is not able to store large amounts of electricity in its body.

In Super Smash Bros.

Pichu appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a playable character. It is a "clone" of Pikachu, albeit smaller and faster. Pichu returns alongside all previous fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, though is not classified as an "Echo Fighter" like Dark Pit or Lucina.

Pichu's Smash and aerial attacks can KO opponents at as low as 80% damage. However, it can also harm itself with each electric attack it uses, and can be knocked around very easily due to its low weight.

In this game, Pichu has the unique ability to use stronger, more effective attacks by holding the attack or special button at the cost of taking recoil damage. This serves as a replacement for Pichu's self-damage feature in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and it overall makes it a more viable character by comparison.

Super Smash Bros. Calamity

Main article: Pichu (Calamity)

Pichu makes a surprise reappearance in the Super Smash Bros. series, after being absent from Super Smash Bros. Melee, in Super Smash Bros. Calamity, as a downloadable character for the "Returning" fighter pack along with Snake and Young Link. Pichu is no longer a clone of Pikachu, as majority of its moves have been replaced with new moves. However, it still hurts itself from using electricity moves, so to slightly compensate this flaw, Pichu is heavier than it was before, and its new moveset has less moves that use electricity.
