Flavor Text

Generation 5
Black, White, Black 2, White 2

It occasionally uses an electric shock to recharge a fellow Pikachu that is in a weakened state.

Generation 6
X

It raises its tail to check its surroundings. The tail is sometimes struck by lightning in this pose.

Y

It has small electric sacs on both its cheeks. If threatened, it looses electric charges from the sacs.

Omega Ruby

Whenever Pikachu comes across something new, it blasts it with a jolt of electricity. If you come across a blackened berry, it’s evidence that this Pokémon mistook the intensity of its charge.

Alpha Sapphire

This Pokémon has electricity-storing pouches on its cheeks. These appear to become electrically charged during the night while Pikachu sleeps. It occasionally discharges electricity when it is dozy after waking up.

Generation 7
Moon

It’s in its nature to store electricity. It feels stressed now and then if it’s unable to fully discharge the electricity.

Ultra Sun

Its nature is to store up electricity. Forests where nests of Pikachu live are dangerous, since the trees are so often struck by lightning.
