PIKACHU

If you are here to know more about Pikachu Evolution then you know that it is a species of pokémon. They are yellow rodent-like creatures with powerful electrical abilities. Pikachu first appeared in the pokémon red and green. Pikachu is believed as a major character of the Pokémon franchise. The first generation design was its cheeks, on squirrels. They have short, yellow fur with brown markings covering their backs and lightning bolt-shaped tails.

A Pikachu Evolution can happen into a Raichu when exposed to a Thunderstone and turns into a Pichu. It has also been known to generate small surges of electrical energy in anger or for protection, like in the anime. A female Pikachu looks almost exactly the same as a male, with the exception of her tail, which is rounded at the end and has an inward dent, giving it the appearance of a heart.

HOW TO EVOLVE?

First, it is Pichu sprite and when it’s highly friendly it evolves to Pikachu sprite when Thunderstone is used outside Alola. If Thunderstone is used in Alola then it becomes Raichu Then finally becomes Alolan Raichu sprite. Pikachu evolves up to level 44. It doesn’t level up, it is evolved using a stone named “Thunderstone” in all games.

HOW MUCH USEFUL IS PIKACHU?

Its best stat is its 90 base speed which is the same as Porygon-Z and Roserade. Everything else is less than 60. Gen 6 gave it 20 extra-base stats, which is put into its 3 ply tissue defences to get 4 ply tissue defences! Light Ball makes it as powerful as Azumarill on the physical side and just as deadly on the Special side but it’s still a glass cannon and priority or faster Pokémon will ruin its day. Volt Tackle is powerful but low HP means it can knock itself out very quickly. Its weakness is ground and electricity is its strength.
