I love the pokemon cartoon series, and Pikachu has always been my favorite. I'm making this page mostly as a devotion to pikachu, but there will be some other characters from the show and a few tidbits I want to include from the pokemon world as well.
Appearence - Pikachu are bright yellow in color with bright red cheeks. They have two brown stripes running down the back, and a brown base to the tail. The tail is the traditional 'thunderbolt' shape, and is usually held erect. The ears are tall and very pointed, and tipped in black. Wild Pikachu are skittish and more secretive creatures than captive Pikachu.
Evolution - In the wild, Pikachu have the ability to evolve naturally, especially during summer time when thunder storms are frequent. However, in captivity, rarely spontaneously evolve unless exposed to electricity or a Thunder Stone.
Habitat - Pikachu live in large forest areas where they cover a large space of territory. They rarely come out in the open, and if they do, only one at a time will come out. They are almost never seen in urban areas.
Diet - The main food of the Pikachu is fruit. They also it nuts, berries, buds, nectar-bearing plants.
Voice - Pikachu, like most other Pokemon, repeat their name. They have a relatively high voice which is quite cheerful most of the time.
Senses - Pikachu has extremely acute senses. Its strongest is its sense of hearing. It uses its elongated ears to catch sounds in the air. It also has an excellent sense of smell and of sight. It's tail is extremely sensitive to vibrations in the air.
Habits - Pikachu are highly intelligent and difficult to catch. Once caught, they are known as being sulky and ignorant to their trainer's command. They have an extremely strong attitude, and are prone to shocking their trainer when annoyed with him/her. However, once they respect the trainer, they become very loyal and very protective. They are also credited because of their speed. They have quick reactions, and with their sharp senses, they are nearly impossible to catch wild.
Predators - Pikachu has many predators. The main ones it encounters are Arbok, Ekans, Persian, Pidgeot, Fearow and other predators.
Some of my other favorite pokemon are Pichu, Raichu, Meowth, Persian, Ponyta, Rapidash, Psyduck, Evee, Bulbasaur, Horsea, Dragonair, and Dragonite.
