Pikarla (Japanese: ピカーラ Pikarla) is a character of the day who appeared in A Plethora of Pikachu!. She is a Pokémon Trainer who lives in Pikachu Valley with all of her Pikachu.

Pikarla is a slightly eccentric woman who loves Pikachu. She even dresses up in a Pikachu outfit and puts "Pika" into all of her sentences, referring to this manner of speech as "Pika-speak". She also has the ability to know which region a Pikachu comes from by touching their fur.

Pikarla met Ash, Kiawe, and Mimo when they visited Pikachu Valley. She gave them Pikachu ears and tails to wear and called them Pikash (Japanese: サトピ Satopi), Pikawe (Japanese: カピ Kapi), and Pikamo (Japanese: ホピ Hopi), respectively. Later, when Team Rocket attempted to steal all of the Pikachu, Pikarla, with the help of her Shiny Pikachu, nicknamed Boss, sent the trio blasting off using Catastropika.
