[[File:HGSS Prerelease Double Pichu battle.png|thumb|Spiky-eared Pichu and [[Pikachu-colored Pichu]] in a Double Battle]]
She appears in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} as an event Pokémon obtained in [[Ilex Forest]]. She will appear and join the player's party if the [[Pikachu-colored Pichu]] (or one of its evolutions) is brought to the shrine as the first Pokémon in the party. She has her own unique in-battle and overworld sprites and cannot evolve or be traded outside of HeartGold and SoulSilver. Aside from her unique sprite, moves, and inability to be traded or evolve, she is nearly identical to a normal Pichu in that her base stats are the same as a normal Pichu's. However, her maximum stats for the [[Pokéathlon]] are different.<!-- The same trend occurs with other Pokémon that share base stats throughout multiple forms, such as {{p|Rotom}} and {{p|Arceus}}.--> If a Pokémon uses {{m|Transform}} on it, it will have a spiky ear.
{{Shiny}} sprites for Spiky-eared Pichu exist in the coding of the games, although it is impossible to obtain due to the game assigning the Spiky-eared Pichu a fixed [[personality value]] that is predetermined according to the [[Trainer ID number]] and [[secret ID]]. This ensures that the [[personality value]] will never result in a Shiny nor a male Spiky-eared Pichu.
