More Details From Pikachu at Pokken Arena
"Pikachu, use Thunderbolt!"
―Ash Ketchum

Pikachu is an Electric type Pokémon, classified as the mouse Pokémon. It evolves into Raichu and is the evolution of Pichu. It is the mascot for the franchise, and appears as a playable character in Pokkén Tournament. Pikachu was introduced to Pokkén Tournament upon it's initial release in Japan on arcade.

In Pokkén Tournament Edit

Pikachu is classified as a standard fighter. He has 70 HP making him tied with his alternate form, Pikachu Libre and Sceptile for the fourth highest HP count. He along with Lucario is a very balanced fighter, decent options for every situation. Some players may find it harder to master Pikachu compared to Lucario due to the slightly more complex style of his attacks. Pikachu seems to use signature special moves from Heihachi Mishima, one of the Tekken main characters.
