Pokédex Description

Generation 2
Gold

It is not yet skilled at storing electricity. It may send out a jolt if amused or startled.

Silver

Despite its small size, it can zap even adult humans. However, if it does so, it also surprises itself.

Crystal

It is unskilled at storing electric power. Any kind of shock causes it to discharge energy spontaneously.

Generation 3
Ruby

PICHU charges itself with electricity more easily on days with thunderclouds or when the air is very dry. You can hear the crackling of static electricity coming off this POKéMON.

Sapphire

When PICHU plays with others, it may short out electricity with another PICHU, creating a shower of sparks. In that event, this POKéMON will begin crying, startled by the flash of sparks.

Emerald

It is still inept at retaining electricity. When it is startled, it discharges power accidentally. It gets better at holding power as it grows older.

FireRed

Despite its small size, it can zap even adult humans. However, if it does so, it also surprises itself.

LeafGreen

It is not yet skilled at storing electricity. It may send out a jolt if amused or startled.

Generation 4
Diamond

The electric pouches on its cheeks are still small. They cannot store much electricity yet.

Pearl

It plays with others by touching tails and setting off sparks. This appears to be a test of courage.

Platinum

The electric sacs in its cheeks are small. If even a little electricity leaks, it becomes shocked.

HeartGold

It is not yet skilled at storing electricity. It may send out a jolt if amused or startled.

SoulSilver

Despite its small size, it can zap even adult humans. However, if it does so, it also surprises itself.

Omega Ruby

Pichu charges itself with electricity more easily on days with thunderclouds or when the air is very dry. You can hear the crackling of static electricity coming off this Pokémon.

Alpha Sapphire

When Pichu plays with others, it may short out electricity with another Pichu, creating a shower of sparks. In that event, this Pokémon will begin crying, startled by the flash of sparks.

Generation 7
Moon

Despite this Pokémon’s cute appearance, those who want to live with one should prepare to be on the receiving end of its electric jolts.

Ultra Sun

It still can’t use electricity well. When it’s surprised or excited, it discharges electricity unintentionally.
