Trivia

Origin

Ash has owned Pikachu since the first episode of the anime. Quick Attack and Volt Tackle are both moves in the Pokémon games that Pikachu can learn, and are also moves that Ash's Pikachu has used in the anime. This card features Pikachu wearing Ash's cap as seen in the Diamond & Pearl series, and is based on one of the Pikachu in a cap distributed in the run-up to the release of I Choose You!. This card's Pokédex entry is taken from the Cap Pikachu entry in Pokémon Sun.
