Pikachu is a beloved electric type Pokemon by many, its height is 40 cm and weight is 6 kg. The Pikachu evolved from little Pokemon Pichu. Pikachu can release electrical charges of varying intensity through the electrical sacs in his cheeks. He controls this electrical energy by various methods, which he mainly uses in battle, for roasting berries so that you can eat them, etc. Electrical energy accumulates in his cheeks, and when it becomes more than normal, he grounds his tail and hits currents into the ground. If you see scraps of grown grass, then Pikachu was here and he was getting rid of excess energy. Pikachu has a very well-developed hearing, better than a dog.
